French Press Felted Slippers. I knit these in Lamb's Pride Worsted and found the great buttons at WalMart! I gifted them to a family friend who is ALWAYS there no matter what. And when I say no matter what, I truly mean no matter WHAT. They were awesome and I knit them up on evening watching Letterman. Yes, they really knit that quickly. So much fun! I really need a pair of these for me for this coming winter. Or maybe for today as it's cold and snowing. What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Root A Toot Toot

Multnomah by Kate Flagg

Again, knit by me. I totally loved this one too! I knit it with 2 balls of Jojoland Melody. I gifted it to our wonderful across the street neighbor. She's been such a huge help throughout the school year. She works at our public school and just happens to be the secretary in charge of all the homeschooling paperwork. I fill it out each quarter and run it across the road and she takes it to work with her. Such a time saver! She also gathered Darcie's work each day when she was out with the flu for a week and brought it home to me. So. Sweet. She seemed to really like it and I hope she gets lots of use out of it.

Now, I'll bet you're all wondering about the title of today's post. Something funny happened today while Dailaesse was doing her school work. We were sitting next to each other at the dining room table when she all of a sudden jumped off her chair and squatted in the corner. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what she was doing. Even though I should know better, I asked anyway. She said...I'm farting. Ok. Why are you squatting in the corner farting? (I know, you'd think I would learn.) She said...I have to poop and I thought if I let out some little farts I would be able to hold it longer. This kid is always thinking. Always. Needless to say, I sent her upstairs to the bathroom. I guess I should just be glad she loves phonics so much that she'd rather not leave it to go to the bathroom.

198 Yards of HeavenA free pattern by Christy Verity.Knit by me in a really pretty green yarn I received in a swap. Love it. It's pretty, easy to memorize, and works up quickly in worsted weight and US 8 needles.

Yesterday we went here...Point au Roche. We searched for rocks.
And shells.
The weather was gorgeous and we had an amazing day hiking the trails, getting our feet wet, playing at the little park, and riding our trusty steeds (sticks we found while hiking through the cedar peppered woods). We enjoyed a grand feast at Taco Bell at the end of the day at the food court in the mall. And the little ones enjoyed a nap during the hour drive home. Amazing indeed.

Monkey(ing) Around

Not the greatest photo in the world, sorry. Trust me when I tell you they are awesome though! This is my first pair of Monkey Socks and they won't be my last. The pattern was so easy to memorize and I love the way the yarn worked out with the pattern. Speaking of yarn, I have no idea who gave this to me but I do remember that it was hand-dyed by a swap pal. It wasn't the greatest to work with as it was splitty but the colors??? OMG!!! And it knit in to the nicest, cushiest fabric. I love them!!! Now I'm off to finish some Jaywalking...
