Hi all! Been kind of busy around here. Yesterday I made up a pattern, cut out the fabric, and made three items. I say items, because I am sending one to LaurieG who was my Pittsburgh Secret Pal who spoiled me so wonderfully. It is going to be a surprise. The other ones are for my sister in law and niece. I finished them up today with some help from my husband. Speaking of my husband, he took yesterday and today off from work. Yesterday we decided to go to the thrift store (one of my favorite stores). Well it was great. My husband found a box of legos, and I found three circular knitting needles for 99 cents each! Pretty awesome. Today we did some shopping at the regular stores and picked up some stuff we needed. I also got a new outfit at Target. A pair of jeans for half price, and a zipper hoodie made of fleece for 75% off. I love bargains.
As far as knitting goes, I am still plugging along on my husbands socks and have a ton of projects planned. But now I have to revise my planned projects because.....................I am going to be an Aunt!!!!!. I am already an aunt by marriage to my husband, but I only have one sibling, a brother and he called Sunday to tell me him and his wife are expecting their first child! Baby knits here I come. I tried to explain to my husband that I love his nieces and nephews, but it is different because this will be a "blood" reletive. I do not have many "blood" reletives, and it is nice to be getting another.
The following pictures are from today. I was cleaning out the rat cage, so my husband took the rats out so it would be easier. He let them visit "Lego City", and it was just too funny. Enjoy the pics and have a great night everyone.
