Why can't I just digitally scrapbook and knit all day?

Beth's wrist warmer update

Making progress on Beth's fingerless gloves/wrist warmers.  Lots of sports practices ramping up, so lots of time spent at ball fields in my car. 
Knit outside while the kids played in the sunshine - 78 degrees in Topeka, sweet!

Logan played in the Advanced Band Concert tonight.  He did a great job!  I think he's outgrown his tie!

Kaw Valley Soccer Tournament

We spent the entire weekend in Lawrence at a soccer tournament.  It was really cold, rainy and windy on Saturday but nicer on Sunday.

Logan's team went 2-2.  Logan had a touch of the flu all weekend. 

Haley's team went 4-0 and won 1st Place in their age division.

Update on the Wrist Warmers

Cast on 40ish for the wrist warmers.... knit enough to determine that the gauge was way off.  Ended it and have started a new one... with a CO of 81 stitches.   Stay Tuned...

Fingerless Wrist Warmers

I'm trying a new project - fingerless wrist warmers.  These are for Beth in my office. 

She picked out the colors.  Now I'm off - it's a nice break from hats on circulars! 

It will take a lot longer as there are two to make, and using a size 3 needle.  Love Lion Brand's Micro Spun yarn.  She's requested a rib stitch all the way up.  She wants them to go up to just before her elbow!  I'm using a 3x3 rib.

Oops! That's not quite right!

I made a Diego pillow case for my nephew Brady's birthday today.  Used some cool peel and stick iron-on letters - quick and easy... only problem is my 'Y' was placed on wrong and fused to the fabric used to keep the iron off the letters.  Got the letters from Hobby Lobby and would fix the problem easily by just buying another packet of letters right before the party, except HL isn't open on Sunday! 

He'll have to open it as Brad... I can fix it on Monday.  Should make for a nice laugh at the party in a couple of hours.

Used this very helpful video on You Tube to do the double edged border.

KSU Wildcats!

I predict a victory for the Kansas State Univ. Wildcats tonight over the KU Jayhawks!  I hate basketball with a white hot passion, but for some reason, these two games a year that they play each other, I'm glued to the TV.  Go Cats!!!!
