I am still working on the Bama blanket for the little guy it was ordered for, and all the hats are done but, I trade up and knit on socks for some other requests to break up the monotony a bit, and here is a set I am working on...
|Presently knitting these for my friend Amy.|
|TheHubs was due for socks...|
Next, is the shot of TheHub's socks, he wanted another set of shorties to wear around the house, and in the summer with his sneakers. I gotta say, it is a great feeling to have a hubby that really appreciates my hand knits, he wears the hell out of them, and always looks forward to when I cast-on sets for him, pretty cool huh?
I have a few hats that need to be cast on for other friends, and then some socks for the LittleCub, who has been patiently waiting in line for his next socks, poor kid, when it comes to large families, it is nice for the knitter to have some much purposeful knitting but, not so good for the ones that have to wait in line, lol.
Thanksgiving, AND the ManCub's birthday is this week. MC turns 19, and is now in college, coming home to spend the week as of today for Thanksgiving. It is actually nice he was born Thanksgiving of that year because, now that he is in college he doesn't have to be alone, or whatever for his Birthday if he doesn't want to.
MC asked for us to pay for another tattoo, and as tempted as I was to grant his birthday wish, I said no. I feel he is an adult now, and if he was some thing that is not a necessity, he should be the one to pay for it so, hopefully he finds a part time job, or is able to do the work program in school, and earn a few dollars, of his own to put toward school (books, food, partying,) and his tattoo. The coolest part of all of this is that MC is learning the value of a dollar, or better yet when you don't have any dollars, he knows now what it is like to not have the option of asking Mom, and Pop for things or money, and he is handling it pretty well. We take care of incidentals, things for his dorm, food, school stuff if you will, the rest he figures out, besides the fact that his college, is well equip with everything any student could need so, it all works out. It is a great college, good environment, and he is happy. What more can a parent ask for?
Below you see a sweater I was working on last winter for a friend, well due to situations that life brings, he doesn't need it anymore so, TheHubs decided it should go to him, lol! So, I am going to be adding a few more inches to the length of the sleeves, and a different neckline, and he will hopefully have a sweater at some point this winter. Thank goodness winter is only about to begin, heehee, March is still considered winter right?

YEAH, I'M BACK!
Just spoke with a friend, looks like I will be casting-on for a Patriots hat this weekend, yay, fun colors to play with!
