No, I have NOT fallen off the face of the earth . I’ve just been busy! We revamped our patterns this past week. On Wednesday, we will be offering the new pattern, and introducing 5 new yarns! And I have been knitting, too, I just haven’t finished anything else.

We started back to school again today. Two weeks off is way too long for my kiddos. The first week was great, but all I did the second week was break up fights. OY!

So here I am blogging with nothing much to say. On the needles:

(new) an instock soaker, will have an intarsia rose on the butt and pants for ds

(old)custom pants, body 2 inches from done and custom pants, one leg needs to be ripped back and shortened, then seamed. I’ll need to make a hat to match the second pair, and possible the first, if the mom gets back to me.

Finished this today.  My first time doing rolled cuffs on a soaker.

I am pleased with it, and will do more.  It’s in the store.

Here I am again!

Fibermom, the seam can’t be in front because it’s not supposed to be!  At HolySheep! Yarns, our soakers are typically seamless.  This one was knit flat for the intarsia, but when I planned where to put it, I neglected to accomodate that.  Never do math at 2am.  Bad things happen. It was a custom, so there was no way I could send out a “second”, it had to go in the store.   It eventually became a baby gift for a friend. Now the dye I used has been discontinued and I am in a real pickle!

Proverbs31 and Sandcastles, thanks!

Hmm, I had planned abit more than this, but the babe is crying.  Oh, rescued by 9yo!

I wanted to show this off.  I made it quite by accident.  Luckily for me, it’s a repeatable accident!

I am thrilled to see my color page growing. It’s alot of fun!

On the needles now–

pants just started that I did not dye enough yarn for the first time

pants with one leg almost done

9yo’s birthday sweater that I had to re-do because it was too small and her birthday was in JUNE..

Today was a good day here.  I got almost everything crammed in.  All that’s left is knitting.  What torture
