Since We Last Talked...

Since we last talked, I've added some new crochet to my bag...

This is how Black Cat feels about it:

But I don't care, because this cutie and her sister are coming to visit!

I will knit and crochet what I want, when I want, for whomever I wish (unless I'm playing with grandchildren!).

I may be scarce online for the next couple of weeks, but I'll be sure to fill you in when I am back at it! Until then, thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health! (Unless, of course, a grandchild demands your attention. In that case, do whatever that cutie wants, whenever he or she wants to, and enjoy every minute of it!!!)

A Hat and a Helper

Sometimes a knitter's gonna knit, knit, knit, knit, knit.
and a kitty's gonna sit, sit, sit, sit, sit...very close to the knitter.

I guess I can shake that off, especially since I managed to get this hat finished in just a few days. :)

I was going to block it on that ball, but I was hoping the blocking would add more length, rather than girth, to the hat, so I've now pinned it out to dry. :)

Now, to get to the red, white and blue crochet...hmmm what could it be???

You'll just have to wait, wait, wait, wait, wait to see!

I. Am. Finished.

Finished. I am finished with this.

I am finished with this.

And I am finished with this.

But I'm still knitting these!

Hi. My name is Pretty, and I knit. I knit a lot.

What's keeping you busy this summer?

The Power Shuffle

I told you on Wednesday that there were precious few moments of knitting this week. However, we did The Power Shuffle nearly every night at VBS, and last night we ended with an ice cream social! So, in short, it was a really awesome week, even though my only knitting was 9 hexipuffs...and today I am tired! Oh, there will be knitting content in the next few posts, but all I've got to share for now is a little power shuffle...

...and a tiny shuffle through my stash, where I found some purple yarn. 

Purple yarn is the best remedy for a shuffled-out Pretty, so off I go to rest my shuffle-ers and start something that I can tell you more about next time! I hope your weekend is good, and that it is filled with funtimes and those that you treasure most. Say hi to Dad for me tomorrow!

Nine Lives, in Leftovers...

It's VBS week at my church, and I am the secretary, and I love VBS, so I volunteered for VBS every night this week, and even on very little sleep, I can still write a pretty good run-on sentence! However, when the knitter leaves the house for work at 8am, and doesn't return home until around 9:30pm for 5 days in a row, not much knitting gets done! lol! Even so, I've managed to knit 9 hexipuffs in the last couple of weeks, and here they all are:

Before they were hexis, they came from nine very different lives...socks, sweaters, hats...you name it! I've sure enjoyed the memories as I've knit each one...
1 is in a sweater and hat I knit for Peanut, when she was pretty small.
2 is in a hat for Mork.
3 is in Christmas socks. Remember the Christmas socks?
4 is in a pair of kid socks from 2007! That's some old leftovers!
5 is in Peanut socks, and Sweet Pea socks, and booties for a baby or two!
7 is in Bob socks.
8 is in Snake socks that remind me of peanut butter and chocolate.
9 is in my new favorite shawl/scarf!

These nine bring my total up to 175 hexipuffs, by the way - go, me! (For what it's worth, I need 225 more. I know. Crazy puffs, right?!?)

Now it's time for me to get to work. I've got a lot to do before 6:30 rolls around, and this crowd is once again in front of me, ready to Conquer Challenges with God's Mighty Power! 

Happy Hump Day! Happy VBS week! Happy everything to you!
