Free Knitting Patterns

Here are a few things I've made in the past couple weeks from free internet patterns:

Watch Cap - leftover yarn from my stash that I dyed with Koolaid. The very end of the top decrease turned out wonky and I forgot to guage (shame! shame!) so this is going to the charity box.

Snowflake Hat - kettle dyed Patons Classic Merino using Wilton's. This is a Christmas present for my 1.5 year old niece. The free pattern is from Little Turtle Knits.

Kitchen Dishie
- I didn't dye this. :) It's good old Sugar N Cream. Another Christmas present . . . I've got another one 1/2 done and several more to go.

It's Voting Day!

Did you vote . . . we did! Abigail thought it was fun to "hide" behind the curtain.

Are you going to vote . . . I hope so!

Not planning on voting . . . I suggest you move to Canada!

Enough said . . . I'll get off my soapbox.

What I've been up to lately . . .

Wow, it's been a month since posted on my blog. Here are just a few updates:

1. My sister moved - Yee Haw! Hallelujah! Goody-Goody-Gumdrops! Sarah, Robert, and the boys moved from Brooklyn, NY into a lovely, lovely community about 1 1/2 hours north of the Big Apple. They are all reveling in all their extra SPACE. =) Abigail and I already visited her for a few days. It was a wonderful time for Abigail to play with her cousins and for me to hang out with my lil' sister.

2. Family trip to Williamsburg, VA - This was to celebrate our 10th anniversary . . . back in May, LOL. It was worth the wait. All three of us had a lovely, relaxing time. Take a peek at just few of my favorite pictures:3. More decluttering - Every week several more bags of "stuff" is taken to Goodwill. The next big area to tackle is my SEWING ROOM . . . ! I will tackle that after Christmas.

4. Christmas preparations - We are spending Thanksgiving in Michigan with the grandparents and will also celebrate Christmas while we are there. That means having all the presents bought or made by the middle of November. Yikes! I am making progress but expect to burn the candle on both ends late into the night next week.
