Christmas Party- just a few

These are the Ladies of "The Church of the Holy Stitch"and the ladies from Village yarn and tea which closed a few weeks ago. We will miss the shop something horrible. I didn't make it to the case your looking for me. I got a virus and was out for nearly 2 weeks. Miserable. So glad someone DID take Pictures. Love all the ladies!!! They're the best!

Christmas knitting

Can you picture this little dress in Raspberry and black? Instead of the checkerboard pattern I'm doing a Leopard print band in wheat and black with touches of brown. Its for my grand daughter who loves that combination. I'm up to the band and its going good. Easy pattern. I found a Leopard print wristie pattern which is 28 rows and I only need 12 but I'll figure it out. I'm excited!!
Also, have 2 blue sweaters waiting in the bag. For the boys. To be done on the machine. Should take a day to do both except the ribbing. Fingers crossed. Christmas come way to fast to suit me!!!

Steam punk Convention

Yup, thats my boys..Jerico and Marshall. All Gussy'd up for the Seattle Steam Punk Con. Jerico kinda scares me in that Techno pirate scary dude outfit. Marshall's outfit minus the hat and goggles reminds me of "Firefly". Which I guess was the point. Hee hee.

The Roof

Bill and I built our addition starting when he was around 29. Same age as Marshall will be this year. The guys are attempting to roof and make right all the mistakes. I hear that Bill mumbles alot about stupid kids. Meaning, HIM, not our boys. Jerico was a roofer before he headed to the sea. Marshall is his minion. lol
I sit on the ground and try not to picture any of them falling. Even Wyatt has come by to help.

And FYI, this has been going on for around 2 months now. They are at the rear of the house now. Redesigning as they go. Fixing the rot because we never had gutters or sofets. Evicting squirrel families who have had nests up there for 30 years.

I so appreciate all the work the guys are doing. I'm so glad I can't get up there. I never could navigate slanted surfaces. They are letting me paint boards. So, I'm not totally useless.

Viking knitting

I took a class from Valerie Day last month. Like usual when I start a new craft, I bought 10 rolls of silver art wire and went into production mode. Experimenting all over the place. I especially like the bracelet with the large Jade stone. Since this picture was taken I've made earrings with crystals woven threw it. And, a black wire bracelet.
This week I get to be Teachers helper for the new class. I'm excited.
Jerico asked if I could make a necklace thats thicker. I'll have to work on that. You pull the woven wire threw holes in an Oak board and I won't have any holes large enough. Bill will have to make me something if he has time.
Next I think I will actually try knitting with the wire. I have a necklace idea I'd like to try.

Just found out that Marie is having a baby boy. I'm going to be busy busy making baby stuff. She specifically asked for everything to be Pirate themed.
The first one I'm working on is this:
Now thats the pattern pic.. not what I made so cool your jets!
I have made Sockies already. Now am working on the booties.
I have several things planned we'll see how far I get. If I post things I never start them so I'll show ya later. Don't wanna jinx it.
On the family front..Marshall got hired over at Microsoft,again. Jerico is still home and looking for local work.
I'm fine.. got through all my medical drama with not to much trouble. Bill got through his with a little drama...but all turned out well. I even got all my silver fillings replace (on one side). Looks awesome!

Been Busy... I guess

Sorry for the lack of posts the last couple months. Lots of Doctor stuff for me and Hubby to get threw. Nothing to alarming. Not quite done with it yet either. I can sum it up... Colonoscopies. Freaks ya out, doesn't it? I dared my husband to get one by saying, "If you get one so will I." He called my bluff. I'm scheduled to start the process tomorrow. Meaning the first dr. visit.

Knitting.. ya I'm doing some. Working on another Selbu-modern hat. Slowly. The weather has been nice so I work on it in the sunshine. Finished the body of the Top down sweater I was making but I don't think its long enough..thinking of ripping out the seed stitch at the more time. 3 more inches should do it. I keep saying that, I know!

Kids? Well, Marshall is still looking for work. Had a few interviews at Microsoft due to a manager that likes him but so far nothing.

Jyll got a Graphic job with Star Aviation. She's been there a whole week +2. Congrates. The rest of her family is looking pretty good.

Jerico is home for awhile. Won't go into it. Lets just say... DOH! See you in court.. sigh!

Thinking about gardening....thinking is the keyword there. My neck is still giving me trouble but massage and chiropractic is helping it not be SO bad!

Debra Barnes

We lost our friend Deb (on the right) to Ovarian cancer on Sunday. She fought long and hard. Went out on her own terms.
We will not Grieve but rejoice in the Joy of knowing her.

Love you Deb... and Victoria too :) and everyone at Village Yarn and Tea
