She'll bring it back and I'll redo it.
They will be staying with us for a time so they can save to buy their own home. The little house they are in now has dry rot and mold all underneath. I'm looking forward tp spending more time with Griffie. He has been an official toddler for a month now. Every day he is a little more sure of himself, walking farther without falling, and now he gets up on one knee and just stands up. He climbed their kitchen 2 step stool, then squealed with delight at his accomplishment. He is so cute!!

Here's the first KAL of the year for me. It's designed byRachel and is called Lattic Hearts.
I love Knitting Mystery patterns. The color of the yarn is hot pink. Some unlabled crochet cotton that I found at Tuesday Morning, cheap!

Queens Creek runs through our property. It is seasonal but always beautiful; at times powerful,
and raging. In the summer it's peaceful and lazy, a place to restore my soul.
Here's an ear flap cap that I knit for Griffin from wool yarn, Kilcarra by Cottage. Another yard sale buy. The wool is too scratchy for a baby, so now I'm knitting it in a Berella acrylic. The free pattern is at http://heyjulie.wordpress.com/2007/03/20/babykids-earflap-hat/ Wonderful instructions! easy to knit.
The item on the left is the first of a pair of Felt Clogs, by Fiber Trends. http://www.fibertrends.com/
The color is actually purple, it shows better in the next picture. I have to knit the second clog before felting both of them.
The little sock pattern is from Lion Brands Knit Child's Solid Sock, knit in their Autumn variegated yarn. It is the first half of Griffin's first Grammy-knit socks.
The clogs are knit in Cascade Wool with Plymouth Yarn Furlauro for furry trim.
I am finding that it is alot easier to start new projects than finish the old ones. Especially if it's a pair of something. Just seems like you should be done when you finish that first sock!

Cafe Press - and yes, I ordered it.
I also found a darling pattern for a baby sweater with a Peace sign on it.
It's in the Winter 2007 Knit 1 Magazine http://www.knit1mag.com/ So now I have yet another project to start for Griffin.

Speaking of little steps, my first grandchild, Griffin Knox, was born last March. He is absolutely adorable and delightful. I LOVE being a Grammy. He grows and changes so fast- that a digital camera was a must.
Griffin inspires me to knit. My first 'return to knitting' project was a pair of felted booties for him. It was also my first attempt at felting and alot of fun. He was also the recipient of my first chenille yarn hat, knit while his mom was in labor. Of course he had to have a hand knit stocking for his first Christmas! I've been looking for a sweater pattern to make for him next.
