Christmas Knitting

We've been skipping Christmas gift giving for a few years now, much to our and our families relief. Still a few things slip by and we all end up getting a gift. This is one of my knit items, a mini sweater Christmas ornament complete with a hand crafted hanger.

Knitting with Wire

I am not a big fan of this project. It felt tedious even thought it probably took less than an hour. The candle on the other hand is awesome. It's soy and smells yummy like baking cinnamon rolls.

Bonnie & Clyde

I ran across this way cool sweater worn by Bonnie Parker of the Bonnie & Clyde fame. I love the whole outfit really. Who would have thought, guns as accessories?

time keeps on slipping

Where does that time go anyways?
Life thankfully has kept me busy, but there has been no blogging and very little crafting. I'm getting itchy to create and have a long queue of projects to keep me busy this winter until my next set of foster "children".
My belated "thanks" at missing the holiday is "Thanks for health, family, friends and baked goods". Where would I be without you.

Wee bit of cuteness, the second season

We just finished our second round of foster parenting. These two little guys came to us feral and left as angels! So much that we almost adopted them ourselves. My father & his wife now have Peetie & Lucy, will be spoiling and giving them an amazing home. Lucky for me that means I can visit as often as I want. Look out babies, here I come!

Recipe: Mango Rum Pops | Boneless Cats & Managing The Heat

Today’s high was 97*. My computer keeps shutting off, it’s that hot. Our kitties told me they’d be good if we’d only let them take their sweaters off.
Last week Jared found a video of a
scuba diving cat. Maybe our girls would try it. I think they might not complain if their little feet were dipped into the cool shallow water of a pool.

To beat the heat I'm making Mango Rum Pops. They won't be ready for 24 hours, but lucky for me there was plenty of mango puree left over for a delicious Mango Mojito! Sweat-free bliss, here I come!

Seatbelt for my arms...

Lack of knitting = lack of blogging. I'm reading a little more though, my brain's loving the excercise. Currently it's Howard Schultz "Pour Your Heart Into It". Recommendation TBD.

Pirates are slowly coming along. I'm at the beginning of the last skull row and feeling like I might run out of black yarn. I also fear that I may be knitting too loose now, as opposed to my previous attempt which was proving to be too tight.

Summer is here and we've been enjoying 80 degree days and oodles of flowers. The mint keeps growing and the mojitos keep flowing.

Gestation Period

It took almost as long as my dear friend was pregnant as it did for me to produce anything. Now, the actual knitting took only a plane ride to the east coast and back, but it was the thought process. I think I have my game back on. Or I'm back in the saddle. Or is it on the wagon?
