Here is a bag I made for the baby wrap I knitted for my brothers son. It has their kids names on it. It was made out of organic cotton.
Here is my mom's project. She made these scarves. You go knittin kitten Momma. I love you and I am very proud of your scarves. I would make this a longer post, but I have to finish up my Christmas projects. I can't post them for obvious reasons. Craft on!!

Wow I was overwhelmed with emotion watching this video. I am over here in Florida doing my day to day activities while there are American's overseas fighting. Washington keeps spending money like we have it growing on trees. Unemployment keeps growing. Our country is in economic trouble. I pray that we can get through this time and that our Government will work for the people and bring us some much needed hope. So far all the change I have seen our government do is spend money we don't have and our kids are going to suffer because of it. Here is the link to the video's web site http://www.bornagainamerican.org/index.php pass it along if you like.

This is the first scarf that my mom has ever knitted. You would think she is a pro by her knitting and talking on the phone at the same time. She quickly finished this scarf and promptly started on another one. I think she is hooked. I thought I took a picture of her scarf, but I can't find it anywhere.
Another woven bag project. I haven't been knitting at home for a while now because I've been working on this beautiful woven bag. All my knitting is done on my rode trips or when I'm at work at Universal or on my way to Disney.
This is the strap for the bag. This yarn was dyed with natural plant dyes and spun by Jennifer from http://www.goshyarnit.com/ This is where I got the yarn for other bag I wove. It took me 6 hours to make this strap.
This is the start of the bag 4 hours into it. The yellow yarn was really tangled up and it took almost 2 hours to untangle it. You have to wrap the yarn in the heddle. This is the purple looking thing hanging in the middle. You go around once through the slat, then the next time around you go through a hole. Warping, or wrapping the yarn around takes the longest to do in my opinion. The rest of the project should be smooth sailing. It will be difficult for me to let this peice go. I love the colors and textures.
This is day number 4. It took me another 3 hours to get this far.

Through the excitement of giving her the hat I didn't take a specific photo of the hat. I hope this is o.k. until Cindy sends me another photo. I also have another FO. A baby wrap for my new nephew Matteo. The photo is not Matteo. It is my neighbor Angela and Eli. Matteo was sleeping the whole time I was there just about, so I didn't get a photo of him in the wrap. Soon I hope.
There is so much more to write about. I've been busy doing so much. I am also busy today homeschooling my son, so I better get back to it. My next post will be about my Kentucky trip. It was very beautiful up there with all the fall leaves changing colors. Until next time. Enjoy your weekend and Happy Halloween!!!!!

Ahhhhhhh sweet bliss!!!!! There are some imperfections in the sock, but at least I learned from my mistakes. I didn't have anyone to teach me how to knit a sock, so I think I did pretty good. Maybe I could take a class, I don't think I understand picking up stitches. My second sock where I picked up stitches looks odd.

Ahhhhhhh look out a big golf ball is headed our way. Oh wait, It is Spaceship Earth. Yikes I was worried. I had so much fun on our birthday. Thank you Mom, Dad , Barry and Cindy for spending time with me on that day.
A couple of weeks ago we went to St. Augustine. At the visitor center they had a weaving loom. I had to have restraint because I wanted to sit down and start weaving. They had some yarn that was made of linen there.
The weaving was very beautiful. I wish I could meet the artist. I have some info on the guild there. I am going to try to get in touch with them and find out about how to get in touch with other guilds. I would love to learn some techniques from a real live person. So far I have learned everything from books or video.
This place looks cool. It is near Flaggler College. We took a tram tour of the city. It was very entertaining and we saw the city without having to walk around it.
This is St. Augustine Beach. It was very pretty, but not a lot of shells. In all the years that I have been married I haven't ever been to the beach as much as I have this summer. I am so glad that we've had the opportunity to do this.
Awe I just love this man.
Next is Tarpon Springs. We went here this past weekend. We went on a boat tour to see how they got the sponges out of Tarpon Springs
This diver went out in the water every hour to dive for sponges. His suite is very heavy. The hook he is holding is what he uses to pick up the sponges with.
Everyone has to have one of these pictures. Trick photography, I think not. Ha Ha. Despite the many days I've been working this summer, I have enjoyed the times I am getting out and going places with my family. I promise I have been working on knitting projects, weaving etc. I will make that my next post.
