I Hate Thinking Of Titles :)

Hey, thanks for all the comments on SP, and Playing the Mom card. LOL! He's not even mad at me anymore. Four more weeks is a lot better than what they were predicting before surgery!


I had quite a knitting weekend. We had to go to the big city for some shopping. The mall, and any other stores, besides the grocery store, are almost 40 miles off. I got to knit in the car! Yay! MIL drove, and the six of us had a fun time. Two of the kids needed new shoes. How do they grow so fast?

Lucky MM, when school started he wanted slip ons that have the band the Sex Pistols on them. His Granny likes to help out and buy some school stuff. Since shoes are so expensive, we're happy to let her! She wouldn't buy the ones he wanted, because they said sex on them. LOL. Well, they were on sale, and the only pair they had left were his size, so I bought them. (Relax, everybody, it's a band!)

I am afraid he's probably going through another growth spurt, though, because he's been even more hungry than usual. That's pretty hungry!
Whenever he does that, he shoots up a half of foot, or so!

I should rename this blog Arleta's Little Projects. It seems like everything I've been knitting is small. Baby Genius Cloths, Soap Socks, Baby hats. I have two pair of socks on the needles that I have the urge to work on, too.

I love the little baby hat. It is so cute! I don't know if I'm putting the ears on it. Lazy me! I think little kitty-cat ears would be really cute. I might even knit a bigger one. It's a fun pattern. The pictures show it on one of LD's baby dolls.

I love the way the cotton is zig-zagging and pooling on the baby burp cloths. I want to make a couple more of them. I have some yellow and blue, so that would make the purple pinwheel blankie, a mint green hat, a pink hat, and one pink, one green, one blue, and one yellow Baby Genius Burp Cloths. I love a variety!

The orange dishcloth, and felted soap are for my best-friend's birthday. Now, I just have to come up with a really cute way to wrap them. I'm going to take her out to dinner sometime next week. We're going to go to a place where we worked when we were teenagers. It has been sold, and I think it'll be fun to see all of the changes it has gone through since then. Hopefully, this won't be the day she checks my blog. Trust me, the way things usually go for me this will be that day!

Well, that was what I did this weekend. Now, I have to go do all of the laundry, and dishes that I ignored. Then, (or maybe instead ~ LOL) I'm going to go knit!

Hope you had a knit-filled weekend, too!

OMG! I want Sex Pistols shoes! That's so awesome. You have the coolest kids ever. My brother's kids wouldn't know the Sex Pistols is Jonny Rotten bit them on the a*# LOL.

yeah, that's usually how it happens. you buy them new shoes, and they outgrow them in about 2 weeks. my hubbie was in a punk band in the 80's, so i definitely know who the sex pistols are, lol.

and it sounds like a good time next week.

maybe if you can find some inexpensive orange fabric, you could wrap the stuff up in that?

and i've been knitting tiny for so long i don't think i'd know what to do with big!

Don't you love when someone else drives so that you can knit??? I love all the projects you are getting done. Small projects are great to do because of the immediate (well, almost immediate) gratification!!

That doll scares me. That's a lot of little knitted items. The joy of the small projects is that they are nice and FAST.

sex pistols - it's good to hear that kids are listening to the good old stuff.

I sometimes spend more time thinking of titles for my posts than it takes to write the thing.

Small items are great and besides they always get finished ;)
