Hi Guys!

September 12, 2010

i feel embarassed for how long it has been since i have last posted. i had so many good intentions, but just fell into a rut and could not recover. i lost my knitting groove real bad. i am not trying to make excuses, nor am i looking for sympathy. i’m just saying that it has been tough. okay, okay, enough of that, let’s get on with the knitting.

we have a firend who had his first grandson the other day and boy is he a proud grandpa. i started a pair of booties and plan on making a couple pairs for him. the grandpa loves them. he has quite a few grandchildren and i have made them quite a few pairs. he thinks they are super cute. this is the first time i am making booties for a boy though. usually i dress them up with ribbon and such, but of course that is not advisable here. grandpa even stated in a funny way — “no pink or purple, mary” he is a funny guy!

so anyway, i started a pair of dark blue baby booties with a cuff. i figured that was pretty masculine. as masculine as you can get for a baby anyway! of course, i have no pictures yet. my camera is charging. god, it has been soo long since i have blogged, or even took a picture with my camera. i am so looking forward to this. the blogging and the knitting. this will be fun.

in my next post, i will have an FO to share with you. it will not be much, but it will at least be a start.

here is to new beginnings!

knit and be happy!
