Aren't you wondering

Aren't you wondering Why I was up and blogging so early on a Sat morning? It's because my daughter Rue and her family finally got moved into next door. And at the buttcrack of day there is a knocking at my door and little voices yelling, "Mema, get up!" I hobbled to the front door and there they stood, all smiling and happy, Monica in her jammies and Javie with a hand full of little cars and bikes.They just wanted to say hi and get something for their mommy. after they left I went back to bed, covered up , got the doggy settled and then knock knock, mema!! BAck again to visit and watch cartoons. So I got up got some coffee and turned on the puter.Now as I was just sitting here working on my socks, they were playing xbox 360 and one started humming and then the other one started and before I know it I'm keeping up with them in my head and I lost count!!! aaaahhhhhhhhhh NOw I appreciate music as much as the next Mema does maybe more but when Im counting I don't!! so had to put down my sock and write this.Maybe I will just go take a shower and try it again after I'm clean and fresh.

Twiggy Bobble Hat

The project I made for my swap partner Joy has been received so I can now show it here. She says she loves it and I bet she really does! it's a sweet hat.
Got the pattern from Ravelry. It's called the Twiggy Bobble hat by Andrea Tung. After I made it I just pushed all the bobbles to the inside and turned the hat inside out becasue I liked the knit side better.

Yep that's right, it's a frogging Friday today. That flower power dishcloth was frogged and so was the cast on sock. Big time bummer. altho I should be sad, I really can't because my gd MOnica is leaning all over me reading this as I type and is giggling away. now she is on the floor. she is such a nut. They are finally moving in next door so maybe she is just happy to be so close to her mema. hahahahahaha

did I say I had cast on for a sock????? hahahahahah

Ok so this is what I'm dreaming of. Lots and lots of pretty warm fabulous socks, knit by me. But my dream hasn't come true so far. The sock I cast on? Well I frogged it. I decided I wanted to try a different sock.

Well I have cast on at least 5 times in the last hour. Once it was too loose, rip rip, next it was too tight as I changed to a size 1 dp needle, rip rip. Then I tried casting on for a toe up sock by wrapping 6 times around 2 needles, rip. NOw I just almost had a cuff down sock all cast on using the twisted german cast on but I didn't allow enough of a tail, rip.

That is where I am right now. I want to knit a tightly knitted pretty sock to wear but I need a simple enough pattern but since I want to challenge myself I fell like a simple basic sock pattern won't do.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have made a pair of socks, and then one sock and then a pair of baby socks. That's it , well except one time I crocheted a pair of socks. HELP!!!!

Proof that a sock has been started!

Here is my fabulous new sock being made. lol yep I just had to show you. I'm soooo proud.

Socks are cast on

I have finally cast on my socks. That's as far as I got. lol But that is a start. My house is full of peeps so I can't really concentrate right now.
I spent the morning watching President Obama's inauguration before and after. It was thrilling just to see it on tv so I can't imagine how it felt actually being there for it in person.
So I look forward to having a better President than before and hope that more people get involved with their community and be more kind and tolerable of all others. Just because someone looks or speaks differently does not mean they are not equal to you. They are equal, just different but the same.
Yea Obama!!!
