I've been a bad blogger...

I was also forgot to update this thing. So heres the low down....

First I'm pregnant, I'm due June 11th which is my birthday, nice huh :). Second I've been knitting a pinwheel sweater since the begining of the month, I have one more sleeve and I'm done. If this sweater was for me, I would have put it down awhile ago. All that purling on the body almost killed me. Third we are going to Japan on Dec 31st to visit my dad(he lives there with my stepmom, the sweater is from her). hopefully the plane ride won't go to badly with our son, he'll be 3 by than. When we get back Brodie(our son) will start preschool early. He goes to one now once a week for 2 hrs.

Thanks to the two of you for your nice comments on my last real post!

Designing Swanky Moms

This isn't about knitting, just life

We have been so broke for the past few months. The rent is due by Oct 5, but the check has to be mailed by the 2nd and we don't even have half of it. We just paid $170 to the cable people because my dh gets pay pre view Ufc fights, I tell we don't have the money but he doesn't listen. My FIL has given us so much money it's not enough funny. We never go anywhere because we never have any money. I stay at home with my son, and my dh works with StageHands, he gets paid well but the companies have been taking forever to pay. I've been so drepressed lately because of all this. I'm trying to promote my etsy shop but theres only so much I can do online, I can't afford to buy business or color ink to print them out.I really want my etsy shop to work out, I love dying yarn and we could use the extra money that I could make from it. I want to get Moo cards because they are awesome. I'm tried of life sucking, its been like this for months, for awhile I was telling myself that it would get better but its not.

WIP and FO

The socks are Socktopia Msytery pattern for the month of August. I'm using yarn dyed by me. I dyed this yarn 3 times, to get something i liked. The Mary Jane booties I used yarn leftover from my Hederas. And the hank of yarn will become Jaywalkers as soon as I get my order from KP. I'm going to try them toe up.

Socks for Dad

So here is the sock I'm knitting for my dad, its a very late Father's day gift. I knit the heel and turned it last night. I'm trying to get these done fast. I got the pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. This book is so awesome, I want to marry it. And the yarn is KP's Memories.

I've been knitting a sweater and its pretty boring so I have been doing a few little projects. Here are two of them . A pair of baby socks and some fingerless gloves. I used KP's Memories left over from my monkey socks for the baby socks . I used some yarn that I dyed for the gloves. I used icing dye for the brown and kool aid for the red.
