We're The Knitter Girls!

LOL. That's what LD said this morning. "We're The Knitter Girls". It's finally a snow day! Yay! We've been waiting all winter!

Yesterday, I took LD's knitting to the Hubby's basketball game, with mine. She gets so bored, when she's bored; I'm annoyed. The knitting saved the day. She's been working on a baby doll scarf ever since. Here we are after dinner last night, knitting away! See, knitting is a life saver.

On Friday night, it was the girl scout cookie sale sendoff. There was a pizza party, a movie, crafts; you know, fun stuff. It was so cold, though! As we were dropping LD off, Carrie yells across the parking lot "Wait one second, Arleta!" So I run over there and she had a plate of muffins for us. Wasn't that nice? I took a picture, but it's too pitiful, because Hubby, SP, and I ate some muffins in the car on the way home. LOL. I did save one each for MM, and LD, but I ate the rest! They were really good! Thanks, Carrie! :)



Ok, now Please ignore how pale I am, and just look at the hat. I know it's bad for my skin, but I'm going to go to the tanning salon. I look ill. Plus, there's no sun here! You know when people say "Stick it where the sun don't shine..." They mean Northern Michigan! It was about 10 pm, and I'd had a long day, too. So, ignore the "duh" looks on my face, too. LOL
Here is my Green Hat for the Green Hat Knit-along. I'm posting the stats here at my FO Blog. I have enough yarn to do another hat. I wonder if I have enough to make some matching glovelettes? That would be neat.
I need to get busy on LD's socks, though. I haven't touched them in a few days, and she keeps giving me little hints that she'd like to wear them soon.
We just did LD's 100 day project. For the 100th day of school the kids make something with 100 things. LD put 100 beads in sets of 10 on a string of yarn, in a pattern of course. For some reason she really likes patterns.
Thank you all for the comments about the lost wallet and the rant on parking, and mean kids. I know life's not all sunshine and rainbows, it's so nice to be able to complain about it, and know that there are other people who understand.
I think I'll go put the stats for the hat on my new blog, and report in to the GH KAL finished hat section that I got one hat done. I just might have to do another!
Hope you all have a great day!

The hat looks great. You don't look that pale. I would love to have a snow day at this point, we only have the bittercold.

Carrie said...

OMG, Arleta, I love that hat so much! I'm definitely going to make one. And I need a new project, so that will be it! Gotta dig through and get some blue wool, though. Good job! I'm so impressed! (You're welcome for the muffins. HeeHee)

The hat looks great on you...even the color!

Amy Boogie said...

yay! knittung girls!
I love it when my girlie knits with me.

The hat is adorable!

Jae said...

I agree with woolwinder - the hat looks great! It's a good color for you.

I'm sorry to hear about the wallet. $4 or $400, it can really make a difference and be hard to get by without it. I know you'll make it - you're too tough to let it stop you.

Hat is super cute. I learned to crochet under the "stink eye" of my mom who said if I was going to be home sick then I would stay occupied and out of her hair with a hook in my hand.
Back away from the fake and bake!!
Raisins get lots of sun too!

This is so great to see, Mother and daughter having a Knitter Girls Night. Love it!

I love that green hat, one of the vibrant colors that picks the spirit up midwinter. It looks the color of the sun through new leaves. No worries, you will get your tan.
