They are both in my sweet little shoppe.

I've already started knitting for next weeks update. Hope to see you then!

Cloudy Days and Blackberry Tea

As much as I love warm, bright days, I also love the cloudy grey ones. Today is one of those rainy, relaxing - stay in your jammies kind of days. I've been surfing the net in search of some cutesy girls clothing patterns for big girls. I love the peasant style shirts like this one and pillowcase dresses too. Now I just need to figure out the measurements I will need for my 8 yr old pumpkin.

I will be busy seaming up knitted lovies this afternoon for my Friday shop update.

This is what I enjoy on cloudy kinds of days like this...

(cup and blackberry tea are both from adagio teas. I *adore* this site... and their tea!)

Warm n' Cozy

When I saw these yummy wrist warmers HERE, I just knew I had to try the double moss stitch and who can't use a pair of wrist warmers in the weather we've been having.

These were knit with Sublime baby cashmere merino DK in "vanilla."

We're Here

Today makes one week since we moved to Indiana. I'm so ready to get things back to normal! I've been knitting just as I promised and hope to add more knitted lovies to my etsy shop. I've taken photos of our beautiful home and as soon as my camera cable gets unpacked, I'll show.

The kids started school yesterday and had a wonderful first day back. My oldest son is in middle school now. He was given placement tests and did fantastic, only missing one question on the entire thing. He was placed in GT classes, I'm such a PROUD Mama! My daughter made plenty of new friends and my little one is enjoying the half day Kindergarten. (I have to admit, I really like it too!) I'm so happy they had a great day, it makes things so much easier when they love school.
