Knitting what not

It's been a few days. Life got in the way. It happens. I deal with it.

One of my latest knitting creations is a pair of longies for a swap momma.

I've had a couple hang ups with them, most notably, I was completely done with the body of them when I realized I just couldn't live with how the shortrows turned out. So, I ripped it back to the waistband and started over. They turned out much better the second time around. I'm further along than what the picture shows, as I took the pic last night and have been working on them here and there this morning. I really like the way the colors are playing out, and just realized that my picture is terrible. The colors don't really look like that. But I'm too....blah....to take another. I'd have to change lenses on my camera....

Also, I've been working on Christmas projects. Finished a long floppy hat for my youngest last night and am debating adding ear flaps to it. It will have a tassel at the end, though I haven't made it yet. Turned out quite cute, though I don't have a picture of it, and you are just going to have to trust me on this one. :)

Not much else going on around the homestead. Chickens, kids, work and school. That's about all that happens. Watched the Incredible Hulk last night and I didn't think it was near as bad as what the ratings made it out to be. I actually thought it was pretty good. That could be because I just really like Edward Norton, or it could be because I'm a Marvel movie junkie. Take your pick.

Have laundry, kids and dishes to attend to. And need to bake bread. Yay for the weeekends, huh?
