Finish or Frog it Fridays KAL

I just joined this group on Ravelry, stole the idea from my friend Aunt Kathy. So check it out here to see what it's all about.

Who's a Happy Knitter?

Ha I am!! As you all should know by now, I opened up my Etsy shop 2 months ago. Well I made enough money with my sheepy items to buy myself a little yarn swift. And because I made the money on Etsy, I bought the swift from and Etsy store called the knit store. Etsy products are all handmade items.

I chose this one so that I can place it on the floor, much easier for me to handle that way.

Here is a photo of it at work, along side a photo of my yarn ball winder working in tandem. I am just loving it. Now I can wind up all the hanks of yarn I have laying around waiting to be knitted.

Who's that cute dog???

Look at that sweet doggy in his new sweater!!! Awwwww. Well I see I made it a tad too long and it needs to be a bit tighter around his belly. Next one will be much easier to make. I really like this pattern, it goes really fast. well the dog is only 4.6 lbs so he doesn't need much to cover him. You should see him walking around next to the sofa and chairs trying to get close enough to take the sweater off but not close enough to actually touch any thing. what a duffuss dog Rayo is.
From his shoulders down to his tail he has almost no hair. He was born that way so maybe his mom is a hairless chihuahua and his daddy is a short haired one. or vice versa. lol

Rayo's sweater amost done!

I'm almost done with my doggy's sweater. just a few more rows with the blue is needed. I think altho the pattern doesn't call for it, I'm going to add a few rows around the leg openings. I know Rayo will appreciate the added effort. Will post a photo of him with sweater on when I get it done.

Birthday lunch

I had a totally good time at Tina and Dades today. Always love spending time with my kids and gkids. While we were all eating cake, Cole wanted me to hold him and feed him cake. As he has a face full of chocolate icing I told him, ha no way kid but how can I refuse such a sweet baby. Here is a photo of us after he gave me a hug.

He is the sweetest and funniest little boy. love him!! See the different spots of yellow paint on the walls. yeah they are trying to decide what color to paint their kitchen and Tina loves to paint spots on the walls and then live with the color a while to see if it is really the one they like. You should see the bathroom off the hall. there is some soft blue and a purple of some sort in there. I like the blue tina.

Here is the birthday girl with her bd flowers from her hubby and kids and dog. Thats Dade in the background. He is the chef in their family. The lunch was way tasty as usual. Thanks Dade.

Happy Birthday to Tina!!

Today is my youngest daughter's birthday. Happy Birthday Tina gurl!! This is a photo of her and Dade and Cole and Mia Bella taken in Dec 2008. I LOVE this photo.

We are driving up to Napa to have birthday lunch with them. Dade is making sopitos and rice and other yummy foods and of course a cake. I'll be riding up there with daughter Ruthie and family. So see you guys later on today!!
