I finally ventured into the world of cables. The kids and I were at Michelle's last friday and she shared a pattern with me for the Irish Hiking Scarf that she's been knitting on. Let me say, it's not only gorgeous and super easy peasy, but it keeps the knitting interesting!! Enjoy the pic!! I'm using Patons wool.

My dear internet friend Catina needed more diapers for her little guy, what a trip she's been on with finding diapers that do not leak. So, I made her 6 pockets. I have some more to make, but this is a start...she bought me my snap press, so I told her I would make her diapers whenever she needed them (no charge). She is a great gal...I'm so glad we are friends. I'm sure you are reading this, no onto the pictures. These are anti pill fleece outers, flannel inners and lots of room for soaker stuffing :)

Tia made these awesome shoes for Krista...she totally loves them!! They are soft soled shoes, made out of real leather. They are like the Robeez, but better!! Krista loves them...she even wants me to put them on her, although the other day she lost one and we have yet to find it. Also, she is wearing a penguin shirt Tia made...it's just so cute!!!
I also made a wallet out of fabric that Michelle had given me. It came out super duper. I'm thinking of Christmas presents for next year...I'm sure the gals in my life will love these!!

We had an awesome Christmas. The kids loved everything they got. We had alot of gifts from the school and my heart was just so overwhelmed. Bob and I also had a wonderful christmas. My darling hubby bought me a fishing pole!! I can't wait to use it. We also got the Nintendo Wii It is so awesome~~we all have so much fun playing it.
On New Year's Eve, Bob had to work late (he didn't get home until 11:30pm). I was a little sad because Hart invited me over and I was looking forward to going. Well, I did some knitting. Here is a hat I made for myself out of Patons SWS (wool soy blend) that Michelle gave me. I also made a felted bowl out of Lopi and I bought some fake flowers. I think it all came out so pretty!!! I also made this v neck sweater using a wrap sweater pattern that I modified.
