New Baby Girl

Toby has a some cute kids, huh? Cindy picked up her new baby today. Isn't she sweet. She actually looks a lot like Toby. I am so glad that Cindy has a little bit of Toby. If this dog is just a third of what Toby is she will one of the best dogs in the world. Toby is my baby, now I hope that this beautiful little girl will be theirs. We "pimped" Toby out a little bit ago with Christie's MIL's chihuahua. She had 6 puppies and we were to get the pick of the litter. We didn't need another dog and Cindy wanted a dog for Chaz, so we let them have our pick. They ended up getting the runt of the litter and she is so pretty.

* Ignore the bags of yarn on the stairs in the background.

Christmas in April

I am almost done with the pieces of the Christmas Gnome. I am using the Alan Dart Design from the 2005 Simply Knitting Christmas magazine insert. This is my first gnome. I can't wait until he is finished. Its just a little difficult to work on it when I have to work so late. Fortunately, the pieces are small (as I am making the small version first) and I can get them done pretty fast. Here are the pieces I have done so far. I have one arm, the beard, and hat to finish.

I have become enamored with knitting dolls. I started with a rabbit for my son for Easter and it has gone from there. This is the first doll I made and I used about 3 different patterns to make it, and I made the ear pattern myself. He loves it but he didn't want a face for it (my embroidery skills are quite lacking). He named it "Meep" (don't ask, I don't know where that came from).

Isn't he cute? I think he needs a sweater or scarf, don't you?

Great Minds

It seems that tie dyeing was the order of the day. Check out Ann's April 7th post on Mason Dixon Knitting. We had the same conclusion to our egg dyeing adventure.

Colors Of My World

Cool Colors, Huh? Easter is here and we are coloring eggs. After the eggs were colored we did a little tye dye with the paper towels and hung them on the front door.

There was a little egg dyeing also.

Fun was had by all. Me especially!

The Beginning

I have started this blog to document my knitting and other endeavors. I hope to be able to create a place for my creative side to show. My writing skills are sub par at best, but I hope to be able to express myself at the best of my ability. If you happen to chance upon this site, I hope you enjoy my entries and please be kind.
I will leave you today with a picture of my rugrat and his dog. I love this picture!
