pop can or water bottle cozy

In Creative Korners group I am in the popcan cozy swap. I have the cutest pattern for a knitted one in my newest Creative Knitting mag but it calls for sport weight yarn and I didn't have any in the color I wanted. But I did have some cotton yarn. So I just crocheted a circle big enough for the bottom of the can and then using dp needles, I picked up stitches all around and started with k2 p2 ribbing for 6 rows and then stockinet st for 9 rows then 6 more rows of the rib pattern. That's as far as I have gotten today. I will do the 9 rows of stockinet st and another 6 of the ribbing and that will probably be enough. It's gonna be cute but not as cute as the pattern in my mag. I will make myself one of those soon as I wind up some of the yarn I have in the lavendar. sweet mild color. Posted by Picasa

And Mia modeling the little tanklet I just made for her

I asked her mom to try on the tanklet I made for her birthday so Tina took off the top Mia had on and Mia started crying big time. Think maybe she thought her mom was leaving again or something but once she had the tanklet on she stopped crying. It is on backwards but still looks good on her.  Posted by Picasa

A Happy 4th of July

I spent the better part of this 4th of July in Napa at my girl Tina's home, babysitting Mia Bella. What a super treat that was for me. It is rare that they need a babysitter so I jump at any chance to spend time with her.
As you can see, she is a super happy baby. We had the best of times today!!

Having some scooter fun

I thought the grandkids would enjoy having some scooters to play with so I picked up 3 of them at Target yesterday. I sit on my porch and knit while watching them play. We live on a dead end street so it is a safe place to play. Posted by Picasa

Mia Bella's 1st birthday!!!

Well my youngest grandchild, Mia Bella, turned 1 today. Here is a photo of her and her Mommy and Daddy at their business. Yes, parents do have to work on your birthday especially if you happen to own an Ice business and your birthday falls on the busiest week of the year!! So we had a small party at their work. She is sitting on the gift me and Pa gave her. I think she likes it too. Posted by Picasa
