It's Monday and It's August.

Seriously, where has the summer gone?
On the knitting front, I can report I have managed to do a small amount of knitting. I am making a pink alpaca sweater for my cute little girl. It has short sleeves and a different stitch design on different areas of the sweater.

For the little man, I have started the Simply Stripy Baby sweater that can be viewed on Ravelry, or I will try to get some photos up soon of works in progress.

I have washed the fabric for a patchwork jumper for the girl, and I will soon begin to cut the pieces out.

On the cooking front, We have zucchinis coming out of our ears, so I have been making stuffed zucchini, zucchini chips, and summer veggie pasta salad.

I don't want to see winter come back too soon, but I am ready for some releif from the heat. I am ready for 60's and 70's. Enough of the 90's.

If anyone has more recipes for zucchini, please let me know. I still have a pile of them. I also have been making salsa and freezing it. We have more cherry tomatoes then we know what to do with at this point. I love fresh Veggies though. You cannot beat it.

Happy July 4th weekend!
So I haven't blogged in many months, here is why.

William was born July 3rd and weighed in at 8 lbs 14 ounces!
He is a good baby and now I am learning to juggle an almost 4 year old and a new born.
Knitting you say, well not yet. I did manage to arrange some ufo's in the order I want to work on them and get them finished. My next accomplishment will be to knit a row on something!

I plan on starting to knit and sew very soon, but it has not happened yet. I just look at my pretty stash and admire it.

Monday Blues

I woke up in a funk today. I think it is just Monday Blues, cold weather, and all this rain this weekend.
I think some retail therapy is in order for the day.

I finished one elephant chart on the double knit baby blanket last night. Yeah!!
I have to say, that I will get all of my knitting stash under one roof within the next 4 weeks, and I am so happy. I have missed being able to look at my books, and my yarn, and my pretty fabric.

Now I am ready for some sunshine, coffee, and some knitting.

No Big Title for today

I have no title for the post today.

On the knitting front, I have finished another DK strip of the elephant blanket. Yeah. I have to get a camera up here to do some pictures. Right now all of the pictures taken are on my phone and then get put to facebook.

Non knitting, It is going to be over 60 DEGREES today! Can we say starbucks and a Park to run z around! I have to say I am so ready for spring weather. I want my windows open, and the weather where a sweatshirt , jeans, and flip flops are the dress code.
