And just like that, Christmas is over. 😢
We had a nice Christmas, in spite of not seeing my brother, sister-in-law and parents. It was a nice relaxing day.
This past week I finished up the felted slippers, and Joey loved them. I will felt them at his house one of these days soon.
Worked quite a bit on the Juist 2 sweater.
I am on vacation this week so should be able to get to the sleeves at least.
Using Dancing Leaf sock blank. I wound the sock blank into a ball, then weighed it, and split into two balls. I like it a lot!
Mason came over this week and wore the sweater Ruth made him. I put this on facebook but had to share here too. It's sooo cute!
Joey brought his antlers from the deer her shot this year. They are massive. He wanted a picture of Mason sitting in them. :) Note Mason is wearing the red booties I made him. Tiffany loves them. He has worn them everyday since Christmas.
Joe loves the hat I made him because it's so soft. Reminder it has a kidsilk hazy knockoff yarn mixed in with the wool. He wears it non stop. In fact a recent conversation:
Joe: I love this hat, it's so soft, is the yarn expensive?
Me: Oh Im glad you like it. No it was not too expensive.
Joe: Oh good, I want a shirt and pants in the same yarn then.
Ruth has been working on her sweater this week. She was able to take the sleeves off today!
Cobblestone cardigan with Bartlett yarn. It's going to be soooo nice!
Martha is working on her candycane sweater - pattern name is Elsbeth Cardigan.
Bartlett Ragwool yarn. These are the fronts. She is hoping to finish, soak and block tonight.
Here is the back all blocked.
In other news:
Joe went fishing on Wednesday and he and his friend caught a lot of fish.
15 lbs after they were cleaned!
Here are some random pics from Christmas:
I asked for a new mouse pad with pics of Mason. I love it!
He is much more interested in singing on tv than me.
Joe loves to hold him
He got a new toy that sings. He loves musical toys.
Joe and I.
Joey, Casey and Benny
Our Christmas table. So pretty.
Tiffany, Mark and Mason
Have a good week dear blog readers. Have a safe and merry New Year!
