More babies coming!

Just found out that 2 more people are expecting!! Jeez,zz! Gotta quit this people!!

Working on my  and still trying to conquer bobbles (satan inspired stitch) If I can get them done, I may just finish that hat, It is a cute hat and I really want to finish it. But seriously, bobbles?? C'mon people!!

Also trying to finish a couple of socks and continue with the Christmas knitting.

I bought some yarn in New Orleans that I want to make Judah and FAR (grandsons) hats out of. Bought it in the Quarter, and it is called Mardi Gras - black with all color flecks in it.

By the Way - lets all pray for all of those people in NOLA!!

More later...

Babies! Babies! Babies!!

A Cupcake hat - I seem to be making a lot of these lately. Easy pattern and it's a cute hat. Pink for the little girl babies and blue for a little one coming in a couple of months. This is an easy hat to knit and it doesn't really take long to make. I use wooden circular needles and change to double points at the top. And of course I had to put a cherry on top!! (red pompom!!)

I have another baby hat pattern that I got at Stitches for a little cotton hat that is quick and easy too. No pictures because I give them away as fast as I knit them!!

Hopefully I will be able to concentrate on the bobbly hat that I am trying to knit...gotta get on that!!

And so it begins again!

I had a blog for a while, but lost interest in it about 2 1/2 years ago. (Reasons will come up later, I’m sure). I work full time, which interferes greatly with my knitting. However, no work = no yarn = unhappy me! So I make do! 
I am grandmother to 7 of the most amazing human beings in this world!! They have given (and continue to give) me so much joy!! They range in age from almost 18 to 7 months. I am sure they will come up in this blog occasionally! ( :) )
I work for a long term care pharmacy as a Q A Consultant. I have no office but stay in the field – a different home every day. If I had to go back into working in an office all day, I would absolutely go nuts. I like meeting different people and developing relationships in my homes.
I also have an amazing group of knitting friends who are very dear to me. They challenge me to learn new knitting skills – like my friend, Donna, who is forcing me to learn to knit bobbles.  Seriously? Bobbles were created by the devil to drive knitters insane…just sayin’…
And I have an amazing Church family too!! The Bridge is a new ministry, and, while we are small, we continue to grow weekly. God has blessed us with an amazing pastor and dedicated people. I absolutely adore my church! And my church family!!!
Enough for the first day…
