I dont see the boys wanting those necessarily. The family has always been very proper. The oldest is suffering from Frederich's Ataxia. He will likely die in his early 20s. I feel awful for them. He's the eldest of 4. Anyway I really want these to be special. Knowing mom, while the less formal of the bunch, she'd rather them have a hudson.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Andrea, there is but it's tricky and so far I've only been able to do it on my laptop and not my phone (boo!). I go to my FB Instagram album, click on the link they add under the description, after that loads I right click on 'inspect element' and grab the link through it. It's a bit of a pain but makes me thankful for my webmaster skills LOL!

DH step brother has some sort of neurological disease (I dont' even know if I know exactly what it is ) and every year we see him he gets worse. He can't feel his hands or feet at all and had a huge burn on his had last year (from cooking and having no feeling). It is so sad.

Now where in the heck are the rest of my MQ's????

cute romper!

glad you can knit better Karen.

nice to have some new input, all kinds of newbies joining in.

OK, I did this before I put the kids to bed, so now I have forgotten everything else, I did read it though.

DH talked me into ONE episode of Walking Dead, we are going to try that one out while NOT PATIENTLY waiting for BB to restart....that is going to be sooooo long. We also watch Game of Thrones so at least that will be out before Breaking Bad.

I hope to knit some sleeves on my sweater. I am tired of having projects OTN. Hat....done. Sweater.....gonna get done soon.

Oh... hmmm...

The aviatrix is nice for little boys. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...atrix-baby-hat

This one looks nice and sophisticated. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...s-cousteau-hat

Can't go wrong with ribbed hats for boys. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ipe-rib-beanie

I've had this one as a favorite for forever, but haven't tried it yet. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...baby--brim-hat

These are some yymn custom longies I'm making. The mama dyed the yarn herself to match the "vroom" fabric. They will have a 12 inch inseam.

Oh, and not quite a wip, although I *am* the only one that feeds her. Here was miss Alaina yesterday on game day!
The wips are great especially the last one!!!!!! Can I get first dibs if your ever destash?

That's absolutely stunning!!!!! What yarn did you use? It's seriously beautiful!!!!

So proud of her.

I finished the back bib of Avery's overalls, and got pretty close to finishing the front bib...and then realized that I forgot to put the button holes on the front bib, so I had to rip it out this morning . I re-cast on the front bib, but haven't gotten very far. I am mad at it, so I had to put it away for a bit .
I've missed ya girl! That's happened to me before too and currently I'm aggravated with some yarn.....i just want to burn it right now :sigh:

Getting transfusions? Highly encouraged when the alternative is death. Highly discouraged when one is just looking for a good time.

I feel like crap. And only that well because using potty words on ds is not liked. I am not looking for attention just hoping that the universe will take notice of my confession and ease up on me a bit. I could kind of use a break.
I can't wait to have my phone back, I miss texting you sexy thing!

Long, but here's what's up with me right now...

A For the Boys Sweater test knit on my Inkblots SW

Then there's this romper pattern I'm like two years behind on publishing...

I'm adding final touches on both the latest prototype and the pattern though and *hope* I get to pick up the For the Boys again here tomorrow/Weds-ish! Judah NEEDS a jacket in a totally 'serious business' type of way.

Helloooooo Mindy and Savannah!

Fi, my kids are knitwear snobs too!
Write everything looks great ands I can't wait four that pattern to release too lol
