Just some stuff I've been doing

Another knitted, felted, lined bag. This one is by far my favorite. It's gone though. These things don't stick around long.
This is a fun hat made from sock yarn. It's so stretchy and light that you can hardly feel it on! I love the way the colours swirl and then go back on themselves. Kind of reminds me of water ripples in the summertime. Can't wait to wear this one out on the cool summer evenings by the water :)

This beautiful thing is called the "Burberry Inspired Cowl" named so because the pattern designer saw this, I believe, in a Burberry Catalogue. It was insanely priced....I'm talking in the she designed one that looks similar. It is made out of Malabrigo Wool which feels like a cashmere hug around the neck. This wool was one of my birthday gifts from Hubbins. At close to $20 a skein, it's not something I have ever been able to just randomly purchase. I will wear this thing forever (because if it's not on me it will, without a doubt, go missing!!!)

When my house is in a state with which I cannot deal, I tend to retreat to my bedroom. It staves off the anxiety provoked panic attack that is sure to come. I can't stand that I spend one of my only 2 days off cleaning up after children who are old enough and capable enough to do it themselves. They are told, time and time again to pick things up, put things away. If you take it out, put it away. If you make a mess, clean it up. If you drop it, pick it up. Such common sense ideas, no? Is this what I get for living in a house filled with males?? Oh Good Lord Help Me!

Lucky for you guys, when I retreat, I tend to take the time to post long awaited pictures of the things that I love to do whenever I have the time.

I now live in a house full of boys after raising three girls and ONE boy, so I can tell you, YES, this is your life for the next several years! Age and ability have nothing to do with it!

I love what you have made! I'm going to have to try that hat pattern.

Also, I posted a blog post of the knitting bag you sent me.
