Chritmas Knitting

Some plain old slippers because the winter is cold and we can always have something warm on our feet.

Here are some hiking socks everyone can use them so I made up a few to give as gifts.

Here is a pair of fancy cable socks. it took me a few months to make this pair only because I was busy working on the other christmas gifts that really needed to be done.

Here is a update on the puppies these photos are of the girls one is sleeping. They are ready to go. I called the man who said that he wanted another one, well as usual they change they mind. So I have no buyers yet .

Well I am back

Sorry to all you readers who might have missed me. I have been busy, all the puppies have found homes, for all you that are wondering about them. Now I did get another litter, this one was three, one boy and two girl they were born Nov. 11th , Remembance Day for us here in Canada. I will post pictures for you to see, as soon as I take some.

No Photos to show

Just dropping in to let you all know that I haven't been knitting much. I did get the back and the front done in the Bamboo sweater that I am working on and a pair of plain socks for my hubby and son. I also did a hat for my daugther, but she is so fussy that I don't think that she will wear it. It has been made for a week now and it's cold out and she is still wearing her store bought hat. Her friend wants a hat and socks for christmas, so if I make the same just a different colour then she might wear it (I am Hopping). Kids are so fussy, but I guess I was that way too when I was younger.

All the seven puppies have found a new home. Now I am just waiting for the next litter, Missy is due on the 14th of Nov. Just a couple of weeks away and we will have new puppies, I love watching them grow.

Nothing Happening

Not much happening just doning the regular daily things. My puppies are just about ready to go they will be 6 weeks on the 20th. I have sure learned alot since having my first litter. I use to soften their food everyday and twice a day when they get bigger, but this time I did just a bit at 3 weeks and now I don't at all and they have their teeth coming in and eating the hard food. Makes it much easier for the people who buy them. Well here is a picture of them just a few days before they are ready to go.

Here is a picture of a doll that I wanted to make a dress for. So I made up a little knit in the round dress and not too bad of a fit. I just used some left over sock yarn.

Here is a little bear that I made up last night only took a couple of hours, now I need to put a face on him.

I am still working on the bamboo sweater. I did get the back finished and I cast on the front, it's half way done shouldn't be too long now. Then I can post pictures for you to see.
Have you self a great weekend and I hope to post sooner and not take so long in letting you know what I have been knitting. God Bless

Student Awards

Yes my children got an award for not missing any school, 0 days absent. They both got a check for $100. Here is my daugther going up to recieve her award.

This is my son getting his award and yes he is wearing glasses, something new we just got them last week. He was the top of his class last year and now he looks like a nerd to go with it. He's ok with it, at least now he can see the board at school.

One more thing, there was a draw among the student that didn't miss any days for $50. and well the list wasn't very big there was only two, yes just the two of them so one was bound to win and it was my daugther but they both agreed that who ever won they would share. They had it planned before they even knew that they were the only two in the draw. Great for them.

On to the puppies they are well and doing fine. Here is a picture of the first litter. They are 15 days old here in the picture.

Here is a picture of my daugther holding them with the mother. I will post more pictures as they get bigger. Enjoy your day and God Bless.

Current work in progress

Here is the picture of the socks I am working on, this is still the first sock. I feel that I am a slow knitter in the summer time only because there is so much work to be done outside.

Here is the Bubby that I made I am not sure if I will send this off to my swap partner or if I should make something else. Yes I am in another swap this one is amigurumi swap over on "". This pattern I got from Knitty.

Here Is the picture of the little bag I felted.Its only 3 in tall. The heart is the button that I need to sew on. I think it's cute.

This Picture is of the sweater that I won from The Old Mill Knitting web site. I am still working on the back as you can see. This is taking me a long time to do because I need to consentrate the pattern is p2 k1 p2 k3 rep. I get mixed up if I don't.

Hello I am still here..

Just A few words to let you know I am still here and doing fine. Just a little busy with summer things, cutting grass, cutting fire wood and piling it.
Yes I am still working on the bamboo sweater but not much is getting done. I did start a pair of socks for the ravelry olympics but I didn't like the way they were turning out so I frogged them and started a new pair the "Spring Forward Socks" from Knitty. I did up another little felted bag and it's very small I will post pictures later for you to see.
I will let you go for today and post some pictures tomorrow for you to see my knitting, Have your self a great day and God Bless.

Little Bunny

Here we have alot of rabbits running around out in the yard, yes wild ones. My sister lives next door to me and says I am always scaring the bunnies, so I decided to make one for here so she could have one that will never run away. But my hubby likes it so he claimed it now I need to make another one for her. Good thing I didn't tell her that I was making it for her she might be upset. No need to worry I can make up a new one tonight.


Maybe I will pick out different colours for hers. Enjoy Your day and God Bless.

Not much Happening in my world

Just thought I would put in a little post to let all you readers know that I am still here and not much happening.

I do have socks on the needles and the lovely sweater that I won from old mill knitting just have the first ball done and my size calls for 6 balls so 5 more to go. I also have the swap package on my needles but I will have to wait until I send it of to my partner to let you all see that or even tell you what it is.

Now for the pictures of what I am up to this morning. Not much but a lot of hard work. We picked 8 baskets yesterday and now they are in the pot cooking for jam. We must have eating a whole basket by now everyone just loves strawberries. We also got a basket of wild blueberries just one little 3lt basket and my hubby like to eat them with cream. We want to get more but the lady we bought them from says there are not alot out there so we will get what we can. I would like to make blueberry spread if I can get enough.


Don't they look good. I still need to clean 3 more baskets. I will just put them into the freezer for the winter months when we can't get them fresh. We like to make milkshakes and yogurt drinks from them. Now I am off to jar the jam they are all done cooking, have yourself a great day and God Bless.

Fly away

All the little birds are gone. I did get to see them off and took some pictures for you to see. here is the first one, running away.


He is there in the middle if you can see him.
Here is one of the three of them left with the mother feeding them.


Here is the second one hideing from me in the bush,but I snaped a picture of him anyway.


The next picture I have is of the third one down on the porch just wondering which way to run.


Here is the last one wonder when did everyone go?


This is all I have for the birds, They didn't come back. Now I get to clean the porch when they left all the droppings. My son took a picture of that too but I don't think that you all need to see the mess that they left. This is all for this posting God bless and have yourself a wonderful day.
