Christmas Eve

Good Morning all from me! The sky was so pretty this morning just before the sun came up.
I have been enjoying my Christmas break with a little crocheting and a little baking. We did gluten free peanut butter cookies with kisses.

I have been crocheting a few of the miniature afghan for a friend. Here is a picture of number 4.
We have a very busy day planned today, we are heading up to see my MIL for a few hours. Then to the candlelight service at church followed by dinner at my folks. But before we go, we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas from our house to your!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I finished the 2nd purple hat, now it is time to block it and wrap it up for xmas.

I also started on a miniature afghan for a friend. It is made with the thread that comes with sock yarn. The afghan is addictive.

Nothing on the Needles

I finished this hat just moments before heading to bed last night. Officially I have nothing on the needles, not even a sock. I have been busy all day so casting on anything new will have to wait until I get home. It is really driving me crazy the idea of nothing on the needles. I did take stuff with me to cast on if I had a moment. I wasn't totally crazy!

Weekend Update

There was a lot of knitting to go along with the snow that we received this weekend.  Sunday morning we woke up to 6 inches on the ground and by this morning it was 14 inches. By this evening, half had melted but it still looks like a wonderland.

I was able to finish the dreaded 2nd sock for my dad's Christmas present. I know better now than to cast on anything while watching a Harry Potter movie. I finish the Christmas Hat for mr80grit and immediately cast on mine which I will finish this week!!! I have many evening of knitting planned as Christmas decoration was finished this weekend also, more on that in another post.

Last leaves

As I was outside this morning, I got this wonderful photo. It was so full of fall colors. The wind has been blowing since Friday am and is suppose to continue into tonight with snow coming in after. I believe this is the last hurrah for the autumn leaves as now most the trees around me are now bare. I think I am a ready for the next stage with Christmas 35 days away.

2nd sock revisited

This is the second attempt on the second sock. I realized late Wednesday night that the first attempt was short by 8 stitches in width. Of course, I didn't notice until the foot gusset. I guess I should have checked multiple times when casting on in the middle of the Harry Potter movie marathon on Sunday. So hopefully I will have enough knitting time this weekend to get it done. My plan is to have it done before Thanksgiving. I have another project I want to complete before December 1st.

Virtual Vacation

This Saturday while out with Mom, Dad and Hubby having lunch, we took part in my brother MrHarley's trip to New York City.  My brother is on the East Coast for work and decided to go see the city.  He is a man of few words but it was awesome that he did send photos to my phone so that we could take part.

 Greeting from NYC!

 I am missing one photo but that is okay. It was great to get them one at a time as he was visiting. I love technology!

1) I am thankful for my family and friends that have served our country.
2) I am thankful for a husband that understands me more and more each day
3) I am thankful for my parents and their consistent love and support.
4) I am thankful to live where I can walk in the morning with the snow falling!

We got a little snow

Well it tried to snow all day yesterday and rained more than anything. But as we were heading to bed last night it was snowing and sticking to the grass. This morning it was snowing when Mr80grit left for work and I had a wonderful morning walk in the snow. I only got one photo but I will share. 
As this is the first snow, it never really sticks and never on the sidewalks. Cars? yes. Greenery? yes.

I wore one of my favorite pairs of socks yesterday. I love the yarn colors and the pattern which is the Burrow I believe.  I haven't had my cup of coffee yet so bear with me.

So that is all for now. The snow isn't suppose to stay for now but that is okay.

Moments from Monday

Well it definately was colder yesterday so I was able to wear more hand knit socks.

The mountains started to get some snow yesterday and they looked so beautiful!

I finished a pair of socks for Christmas giving on Saturday and then immediately cast on another pair also for christmas.  I made a little progress on a hat yesterday too!
Completed Xmas socks for MrHarleydude

 They are forcasting more rain and snow today so I can't see what we actually get!  The clouds are rolling in as I write.  I am excited to wear hand knit socks again today. Can you tell I really love my socks? Yes I sense a theme of taking pictures of them each morning!
