The nice weather continues as the month of July begins to wind down.
It has been such an exciting and special July for me because I became a grandmother (but please call me Nana) for the very first time! I can’t tell you how it feels to hold your grandchild and look into those beautiful eyes – knowing that your family has grown in the most wonderful way! Meet my grandson!
Each day that I see him, he grows and becomes this little personality all his own. He sleeps so peacefully and will sometimes smile about something only he knows about. His tiny lips and nose are perfect and his cheeks are so full and round. I cherish each and every time I spend with him. I am so lucky!
So, with all that baby-holding – my knitting has suffered a little (lol, ok a lot, not that I really mind!) Please notice that adorable knitted hat that my grandson is wearing! You know, a person (like me) dreamed of knitting a hat (like that) for a grandson like mine!!
Happy friday and hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather!
Plan on telling you what I have been up to recently and what exciting news I have, but first need to just say a quick hello and hope y’all have been doing great!
I have been doing some knitting though I have been pretty busy. Still working on some quick scarf Christmas gifts – pictures to come later.
Enjoy your weekend with family and friends – there’s nothing like it!
Here we are at the beginning of another month with great expectations on the days to come! There will be fireworks and family time and, thankfully, great weather for the great northeast!
I have been able to take puppy out on short walks again and I know that both he and I are enjoying that time together. I don’t have to listen to quite as much crying and howling as I leave the house to venture out on my own. So, the other night while walking I took this picture of some beautiful looking flowers! Maybe some day I would take those photography classes and really take some awesome pictures! Such a great pastime – taking a moment in time and capturing it! Dare I say – very cool!!
Though I have put baby knitting aside for now (just for a short time), I am continuing my idea to knit some Christmas gifts that will be given this coming holiday. They are a quick and easy way to produce something that someone could use and appreciate come the colder weather. So, I found this really fun yarn called, Patons ColorWul. The color is called Bloom, and as you can see there are many great colors in it! It is bulky yarn, so it will knit up fast and with it being 100% wool, you know that it will keep you warm.
I was thinking of using a pattern that I saw on Purl Bee that makes the ends curl on purpose, adding to the fun and carefree feeling of the yarn. The scarf is called Confetti Scarf.
