Hey guys! Sorry I skipped off again there. I can't not acknowledge my ignoring the blog. Just know when you're not seeing posting, behind the scenes LOTS is going on. :)
So, we moved! I think we could officially be dubbed gypsies. We found an adorable little place in town ~ the library, pool and playground are across the street. We can walk to the bakery and a little cafe'. It's super cute here! We plan to stay here awhile and when we're ready to move on we'll be looking in town to buy. We're just in love. I've got to snap some pics to share. I'm waiting for that last picture to get hung. ;)
As a family we've been b.u.s.y. Jackson is in teeball and Justin is the coach. Coach Dad! <3 So sweet. Our team is hilarious. There's a couple kids who really get the game and have the knack. They grab the ball out of some kids gloves and do the plays. Of course it's not competitive and score is not kept. Each kiddo gets to round the bases no matter if they're out or not. The league just announced it's time for coach pitch for the second half of the season and I'm so impressed. Each kid is doing so great! Nothing like seeing your little guy wap the ball and run for it. Liam is doing pretty good watching from the sidelines. He wants to play so bad and run out to Dad all the time. So we spend part of the time trying to see the game and the other time trying to keep him out of the creek and poison ivy.
Now that we've been here a month I'm getting my dyeing space set up. It's sweet! We have a mostly finished basement with some natural light, a sink and cabinets. :) It's perfect! Just need a stove down there. I'm really enjoying dyeing some more yarn here and there.
Of course there is no shortage of knitting going on around here. Some of my favorites from the past couple months are these~
With Bugnsugger's "Lawn" I created this kimono for sale at a special stocking Diane invited me to at her shop. The striped longies I made to go with it sold but the kimono didn't find a home right away. Funny thing is I stocked it again at Universal Mama's newborn stocking and added a longies semi-custom to it. The same mama who bought the first longies ended up getting it! <3 They were meant to be together after all. I added some handy dandy removable sleeves and off they went to their home.
Western Sky Knits Beach colorway has and will remain to be one of my most favorite colorways. :) This ruffle adds a sweet girl edge to them without being over the top, ya think?
For Universal Mama's newborn stocking I knit up Dashing Dach's "Granny Smith." Perfectly paired with a Cake lap tee! <3
Here's my dream layette. If we had a reason for a layette. But we don't. So I wasn't too sad to send this on to their expecting owner! Purewool made this awesome new colorway, "Leaves" which Lori from Alfabette Zoope matched and created the sweetest little ::heart feet:: tee. In. Love.
Ack I'm sure making up for lost time huh? A couple more tidbits and then you can move on! There's a couple stockings to let you know about! I have a custom slot stocking at Silly Stripes Shoppe at noon EST tomorrow. And at Universal Mama tonight you can grab some hand-dyed yarn at 10pm EST. Talk to ya soon!
