Fly-By Post II

Hey, everybody! Thanks for the nice comments on the soaps. I love it! I'm going to make some more. It's a fun new craft. I think I'll have/let the kids make some, too. Also, thanks for the birthday wishes for The Don. He's 35, today, and saying he's old. Goofy Guy! We're only 33 and 35, and we have a 16 yr. old. We're the youngest parents around! LOL Look at all of this knitting!!

I'm running around like a crazy person today. I even missed knitting with Carrie. I thought she said it wouldn't work for today, and I didn't go, then she called and said "Where were ya?" We were both too busy today, anyways. Wait, I was busy knitting. Actually starting more knitting. Don't you think I have enough going? You know there are a bunch more WIPs that aren't making it in the pic, don't 'cha?

This is the stuff I have in the living room. A dishcloth, my latest jaywalker socks, a pair of broadripple socks for LD, the pinwheel blankie, a new pair of mittens for LD, and the blue thing. The blue thing is a throw I started a couple of years ago! It's on huge needles, but it is boring! I was cold last night while I was knitting the baby blanket, so I pulled it out and started knitting on it again. There are more WIPs and UFOs in other rooms of the house.

Well, I finally spent my birthday money. (Thanks Cindy!) Haha, my birthday was in September. I was waiting for the right sweater pattern to hit me, but I finally decided I don't need another project right now. What I need is the Knitpicks Options needle set. MmHmm. I got that and a few extra pieces with it, and it came to 2 cents less than my birthday money. Just right!

Since the sun is sort-of out, here in Mi, I finally got the bracelets and stitch markers photographed for my etsy shop. I'll make a little posting here when I finally get them posted on the shop page. Right now, it's all hand dyed wool, that I dyed with kool aid.

Gotta run! I have to go get the kids from school soon. I hope I'll get to post again before Thanksgiving, but if not, Happy Thanksgiving to the USA, and all who celebrate it!!

Wow. Have some WIPs?? LOL!! Deb would probably kill me if i had that many projects in the works.

I like the colors in 'the blue thing', too bad it's boring you. Bummer.

HaHa, isn't amazing how easy it is to take on *more* knitting when there's tons of other stuff to do. That just means it's true love ;) I love your soaps, BTW, great idea. I wish I wasn't such a lousy felter LOL.

I hope everyone who celebrates it has a Happy Thanksgiving. If you're not in the US, then have a great rest of the week and weekend!! Be back as soon as I can.

I've been wanting to make some felted soaps. I tried once, but I think the soap I used was too soft or something. I'd like to make some for Christmas gifts - yours looks great!
