It's Been Awhile

Well it's been awhile since I've last posted. I am back home again and trying to resume a regular schedule.
It's hard. I miss my Colorado family.

Lots of chores around here too. My backyard is a jungle of weeds, my wips are lying around, abandoned, my desktop power supply died, now the cpu fan is making strange noises and that is not good. Oh and I need to look for a car.

Good thing I have my summer shows Tivo'd. I have been knitting a car seat blanket, using Mason Dixon's Moderne Baby Blanket pattern. Lots of garter stitch to watch the shows.

Here's a cute crocheted hat I made for little Lissie. Added the flower for even more cuteness!

More News From Colorado

I've decided to stay awhile longer here - just having too much fun with my grandchildren. I hope hubby is still alive in So Cal... (just kidding - he's fine)

A girl can never have too many outfits, right?
Here's the little one's wardrobe.
And I just had to knit up a matching hat.

Thought I'd knit up a few sweaters for future use before I head back home.
This will be little granddaughter's Halloween sweater.

Yarn: Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn
Pattern: Garter Stitch Baby Cardigan

In big brother's loving arms

Still crocheting 9" squares for the Blanket Blitz!

And Now We Present

My granddaughter!

My daughter is holding the wee princess.

Pretty darn cute!

And no, I did not crochet the sweater.......
But I will be making lots and lots of cute little outfits soon!

Knitting In Colorado

Heading back home to Morrison, Co, after a day of shopping
I could not resist taking this picture.

Here's the cute yarn shop I visit that is really close to DD's home. I bought some Brown Sheep bulky yarn and a Fibertrend's Clog pattern to make grandson some slippers.

Another hat from thrift shop yarn. They like it - they're keeping it!

And I am still busy making squares and hexagons. The pink flowers will be the centers of a large square.

Fun In Colorado

I'll be posting in bits and pieces - too many pictures!

The scenery here is simply beautiful and we are on the west side of Denver.
Here's a picture of Denver from where we were shopping.

Birthday Boy's Party

I'll post later on with some knitting pics!
