Those are so cute! Too bad none of my kids even care about these characters, I would make some.

I'm testing a cardigan on rav and making a sweater for me but have not decided on a pattern.

How's your nb stash?
Aw, that was cool of Fi to send you the pattern. Sorry you're in transit soon, but your plans sound great! I think with the extra effort, it will turn into good Christmas with special memories

My newbie diaper stash is set minus some random snappis and diaper pins I need to get (hello Black Friday ) and we're set. I just need to get cracking on my woolie stash. I have some interlock wraps/soakers and a few knit soakers. Think I will do 2 nb longies and about 3 small longies and we're good to go.

Then I got my perfect bowl of cheerios with a banana on top for breakfast.... took the first bite to find rotten/sour milk The worst part is, this is teh gallon of milk my hubby bought less than 12 hours ago when I sent him out just before the kids bedtime last night because we were out... just checked the date. Nov 13th. Sold on the evening of the 14th. GRR!
Sorry the cupcakes didn't turn out, but homemade fruit roll ups sound yummy. My C would be all over that!

Do you still have the recipe for the milk? Maybe you can get your money back or exchange it? I'd be spitting mad. Preggo lady with yucky food...blasphemy!

Hoping to finish the HH I have OTN for my dd before the weekend.
It's cold here and I am wishing I had started me sweater. har har lol

What is a good inexpensive yarn to knit a sweater with? That isn't itchy. hmmmm
Knitpicks swish is really nice and drapes well. Cascade is okay, but I prefer Knitpicks and is much softer than the Cascade I've run into.

Oh my name buddy...my co-worker finally made it to work and bestowed me with a dozen krispie kreme donuts (glazed and choco covered). I shall eat one or a few in honor of you. Good thing I must've passed my glucose test (no call from OB's).

Oh, I saw that hat on rav. Yeah...its interesting. Reminds me of a fortune teller's hat. I'd call it Madame something or another if I named the project. I think with a bow or crocheted flower in the gather, it might look cute....or on a kid with lots of long hair so you don't look bald wearing it.

Day gone? I'm just eating my breakfast now! How's the job situation going? Did you decide on madtosh for C's sweater?

I so saw those on Pinterest...then I saw them on Pintrosity (or something like that). Its the site with people who attempt Pinterest ideas and fail. The cookie monster fail was hilarious...probably what my attempt would look like.

I likey those turkey with stuffing cupcakes. I wouldn't know what it would taste like. It reminds me though, I need to think of Thanksgiving treats for C's teacher and E's daycare provider. Lord knows those ladies have the patience of a Saint to love and watch over my boys.

Can't wait to see your FO...I usually just do seed stitch but I'm boring like that... and congrats on the 26 weeks!! We're only a few days apart. I made 26 weeks on Sunday...time is flying by quickly!!

Re: VETERANS DAY! KAL 11/11-11/17 Knit to a goal!

MM, pop one of those KK donuts in the micro for me and enjoy Karen! then some milk.

Please dont buy snappis. I have three pink new ones, would that do ya? I surely don't need them. I have a green and some white too, they are both used. The pinks are nice and unstretched.

Hmm so swish is nice or not nice? Thaks for checking Erica, no rush.

just back from both kids Thanksgiving luncheon, the cafeteria one. Tomorrow is the big one I am making a turkey for. I just realized I have a dentist appt at 9am tomorrow. I need to get the turkey in and then carve it when I get back and have it ready by 12:30...I think it is going to be close!


Knitting question....I just grafted the hood closed w/the kitchener that was in the pattern for the seed sts and it came out ribbed? Did I do something wrong, would it work if I just move everthing over one sts? I didn't think about it a whole lot yet but if someone has a quick answer, I'll take it. I am going to pull out and try the "move it one sts down" and see what happens.

That solution would work.

For the seed st, I think your plan would work.
