Diaper covers…

…aren’t like those rubber pants my parents used to use:)

A wool soaker and pair of longies I knit up. And, yes, this has turned into a knitting blog lately since that’s about all I do these days.

Here’s the longies I made (with the same purple-ish/blue yarn) years ago for Simon. The newer ones are Eviepants and the old pattern was Fern & Faerie. Love the Eviepants pattern better.

In action, getting as dirty as can be…

Great Grandparents. Yay!

We had a quick visit with Jason’s grandparents, Irwin and Louise this evening. I sure got lucky marrying into this family! They are the best!

Simon and the three bears

I started out knitting one bear and the kids were having fun with it and each wanted their own. So now I’ve gone bear crazy!

Soon we’ll have a large bear family and I’m thinking it might be cool to knit up some clothes for them. Yep….bear crazy. Help me!

Finally finished a second “Alien Illusion Scarf” I started six years ago but never finished…

Can you see the aliens?

…and made my own buttons for it. I think they turned out great!

Xander was very excited to try making some buttons of his own…

guitar lessons

Some friends and I have been taking guitar lessons in my living room once a week for the last four weeks and it has been so much fun!

We started out paying for the four weeks and tonight scheduled another four to start in August.

The kids have expressed an interest in taking lessons of their own so we’re hoping to set up a few for them as well. I love that it’s right here at home and I’m sure the kids will love that too.
