This child o' mine is beyond words. Just look at that beautiful posed face. I held him at the front door with the sunlight coming in on him and took a jillion photos. He posed pensively for everyone of them. Crack up!


Happy Halloween from the Gnome Family

We had such a ball Halloween night taking Flynn out to the neighbors and showing off his costume. I knitted all of us gnome hats and pinned flowers to him and myself. I got the rest of his costume as normal clothes from Target and put the dog's collar on as a belt, stuffed his belly with cotton batting and away we went with our watering can for a candy bucket. He was absolutely precious.

Here's a little teaser from the parade tonight. Craftyminx took this shot...very cool. That's me in the middle waving like a pageant queen.

Here are some more fun shots from the parade...pink hair and all.

7 Year Itch

7 Year Itch, originally uploaded by Knitterista.

The beginning and maybe the end of this round of the anniversary sweater I was knitting for JD for our 7th Anniversary. Traditionally you give wool for 7 years, hence the cleaver name, 7 Year Itch.

I gauged this dang thang and I think it is way too small...would fit me rather than a man. So, I'm sure I will be frogging this out pretty soon.

I do however really like this yarn I got at the Taos Wool Festival. It's really pretty and super soft...will be nice if it ever turns into something of substance.

Table One

We went to the most amazing dinner recently. A chef friend opened his catering kitchen and is doing special 8-course meals cooked right there for you in front of you. He did a unique menu and a just-for-me menu for me the vegetarian. I did however have fish and scallops...no egg though. He paired it with wine and beers from my husbands soon to open brewery. It was so awesome. These photos do not do it justice at all. And, I ate practically every bite.
