Saturday June 13th was World Wide Knit in Public Day! And what a fun day it was! The Charlotte Knitting Guild hosted an event from 11-3 at a Charlotte area Books-a-Million, with prizes drawn every half-hour. The Joe Muggs cafe stepped up and had samples of iced coffee and treats for us too! (Charlotte… Continue reading WWKiP Day!
So if you can't tell by the title, we've been really busy here the last few weeks! The weekend before Christmas we visited our families for an early Christmas. The DSs made out on presents from the grandparents! Which made me happy, since we had gone rather sparse by way of presents this year, so… Continue reading Busy, Busy, Busy

Here's a panoramic shot from Saturday morning when the fog from the rain was rolling in: The cabin was lovely (but… Continue reading At the Summit

There were so many beautiful knitted and crocheted items there. And there are always lots of wonderful photos entered in the photo judging. I've started a… Continue reading Fair Ribbons, Knee Highs and Weight Loss
Well, we got the boys a hamster the other day. (I'll be doing the pet-parenting, though, since they're 4 and 2!) She's a sweet little hammy - very sociable. She's only nipped me once, and to be fair I think my fingers smelled like food. She handles being picked up and petted very well. I'm… Continue reading New member of the family
First off, I can not believe that the Pats lost that game. They totally handed it to the Giants. I am so mad at them right now. 'Nuff said. Moving on.... Here's my Mardi Gras mask finished! I'm happy with how it turned out. I wore it to the Central Piedmont Mommies Mardi Gras Party… Continue reading Super Bowl disappointment and Other Stuff
