Ayanna's ears

I have done LOTS of knitting, but the only thing I have pictures are of Ayanna's ears after she got them pierced (again) this weekend. I don't even get to get credit for getting the pictures, as my sister took them on her camera phone. Again means they closed up after the last time. She was okay with it. We set her up to have a french fry AS SOON AS SHE WAS DONE, so she wouldn't cry for too long. Also, there was a guy there who had a dog with him, so we set it up so she could see the dog as soon as she was done, too.

Knitting news would include: finishing the first front of Ribby Cardi and about half of the second front. Finishing about half of the front for Malik's sweater, and Finishing the wrist portion of Marcus' glove #2.

I have some good news. I knit some things for Knit Picks for them to put on the website and/or for publication in the catalog. They are now available on the website.

The first thing I knit for them, I didn't take a picture of, but I knit this hat.

The second thing I knit for them, I didn't actually knit, but I assembled it. Pig. Here is the picture of the pig on my desk waiting to be put in a box:

Mind you I have NO idea why I am up at (before) 6:30 on a Sunday morning! But, it gives me a chance to blog.

Let's see...

I went to a swap a couple of weeks ago -
The haul

Some wool pink and purple fingering (or less) mystery yarn
Some hand spun, some sugar and cream, some Cascade 220 and some Lorna's Laces
Some fingering weight yarn
An old (sideways) Knitters magazine
I sent out my hat in HeadGames -

I got my hat shortly thereafter -


DeAndre' had a party -

He is now 9

I finally finished the first of Marcus' gloves and cast on for #2. I finished the back of Malik's sweater.

I have lots of updates to make, but I have only this to post right now. In our newspaper I read this today:

Come with us as we go around the world in a daze!
First stop: GREECE
55 nuns from a monastery in Sidirokastro are on the run after running up debts of more than $1 million from a knitting business that went bust, Greek police said. The nuns had secretly run a knitwear company on the side for 10 years, but blew their money traveling to fashion shows across Europe.

I have been waiting patiently for some money we were expecting about Christmas time - it hasn't come. I signed up for the classes, anyway! I am very excited about them all! Ready?

Drop Spindle Spinning; Hoop 'n' Loop with the Blazers; Knit Purl All-Nighter

I also want to sign up for this class, but we will see: Dye Your Own Sock Yarn

Sorry I have been gone. It got busy, again, at work (BIG SURPRISE). Plus, I got some news. Since the partnership is breaking up, they will no longer be needing my services. I might go with the partner who is leaving, or I might not. I will be here until March 31 unless I find something else first.

I signed up for Secret Pal 10.

We had snow a couple of weeks ago.

The kids all playing. Ayanna's first snow
