I'm back!! This last few weeks has been absolutely insane for me. I've been working with my fellow elementary school PTO members to put on a Polar Express Carnival, and today it finally happened! There were games, crafting, raffles, face painting, concessions, Santa Claus meet and greet and a very special "Train Ride" to the North Pole where the kids were given hot chocolate and read the Polar Express story by the Conductor (played by the district superintendent!! How awesome!) The kids really seemed to have a great time and I am so proud to have been a part of making this amazing event happen πŸŽ„
And I almost forgot- we had the first snow of the season as the event was happening!!

I finished up the stocking hat for Jacob yesterday- and absolutely hated it!!! I frogged the whole thing last night and turned it into a pretty basic beanie with some fun colorwork and a fluffy pompom. I really love this one and I hope he will to. Now to get it in the mail so he'll have it for his early Christmas πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽβ€

Spent the day with family today to celebrate @cupcakejakob turning 8! My sister made an awesome #mariocart cake, I got to see my little buddy @gus.gus.thegsd and we ended the day on some huge trampolines! Happy Birthday, Jake!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽˆ

Well, I hadn't planned on spending time in the ER today but when your husband is on the clumsy side of the spectrum I guess you have to be prepared for anything. On the plus side, we always seem to have a lot of laughs together whenever we find ourselves in an ER. .

Today in the #julyinstaparty, I get to tell you what #ImGratefulFor 😊
I consider myself a very lucky person- I have a great family (the one I was born into as well as the one I married into) with lots of siblings, nieces and nephews. I have an amazing and supportive husband, an awesome daughter I was told I would never have and our crazy kitties. We all have our health and we are a pretty happy bunch. I don't take anything for granted and I try to enjoy every day, even when I'm feeling frustrated. I am grateful for all of this and so much more πŸ’•

Not exactly knitting related- but too funny not to share. Our town had trick or treating tonight and my daughter wanted to pass out the candy. My husband and I neglected to explainto her 1-2 pieces of candy per kid. She emptied our candy bowl on the first group of kids. As my husband was heading out to the store to grab another bag, he saw tons of kids out and panicked a bit...now we have a boat load of unopened bags of candy and have had only 4 trick or treaters since the original group of kids πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

All finished and ready to go!! This scarf/wrap was definitely a challenge for me and I was feeling a bit wishy-washy about it last night. But this morning, looking at it with fresh eyes, I am happy with what I accomplished. I attempted to add whiskers, but they just looked off and wouldn't lay right so I decided against them. Overall, I think it's cute- a great accessory for a little #nashvillepredators fan 🐯

When you've had a rough weekend and super busy Monday, it's a nice surprise to pull into the driveway and see a baby deer hanging out in the backyard. .

The Christmas parade was a success! The girl scouts & cub scouts had a great time and their float even made 2nd place!! We finished off the day making an ornament for the town tree, with a special visit from Santa & Mrs. Claus πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ€

It's been a long day! After an afternoon in the ER with my husband- he slipped and fractured his leg- I am glad to be home with this silly oaf. Time to unwind and knit a bit before bed. .

I have been struggling for days attempting to make a Nashville Predators themed tiger scarf for a customer and failing miserably!! I lost count of how many times I frogged, reknitted and frogged again..and then luckily I found a tiger stripe knitting chart from a fellow #etsyseller @woollyrhinocrafts and I am finally making progress!! I will not be beaten by a scarf!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

I've been so busy this holiday weekend that I completely forgot to introduce you all to our newest family member!! This is Samara- Sam for short- she was our Black Friday splurge from our local shelter. She was so excited to find her forever home that she popped her spay sutures and landed herself in the cone of shame πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Sam is just over a year old and has the sweetest disposition, she is playful and snuggly. She is great with our 5 year old Elizabeth and loves Gertie- however Gertie is still not very thrilled about her, she'll come around 😸😸

πŸπŸ’› Happy Thanksgiving! πŸ’› 🍁
This is one of my favorite holidays- and not only because of the food πŸ—πŸŒ½πŸ°! Every night I try to reflect on my day and make note of all the good things that happened. For me, #thanksgiving is a time to look back on the year that has passed & remember all the good things that came with it and to think about my goals for the year to come. I am always #thankful for my #family & #friends- their love and support means so much to me. I am thankful for the health & happiness of my husband, daughter & self. And I am thankful for every one of my customers- I wouldn't have this little #etsyshop if it weren't for them. πŸ’›
What is something you are thankful for?

Busy, busy, busy!! That seems to be my theme this week- and I love it!! Happy mail went out this morning, a #unicornhat in the storm coloringπŸ¦„. Then I spent some time with a fellow #girlscoutmom and we prepped our troop's banner- we'll be adding the girls' handprints at our next meeting πŸ‘. Next I'll be starting another #customknit unicorn hat in these gorgeous colors

I'm attempting the #Kraken hat pattern by the amazing @twistedhatter1981 for an old friend of mine and I'll also be starting a #customorder #wonderwoman themed #unicornhat today. I've got a planning session with the #GirlScout troop leader and co-volunteer in a bit and birthday gift shopping for my daughter's friend a little later. What does your day look like? .

I absolutely love how this #unicornhat turned out!!! My favorite color combo so far, I love the way the #neonrainbow colors pop on the black hat. Definitely one of those classic color combos that never really goes out of style πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ’•

I can't believe I forgot to post these pics this morning! I finished the pink & purple #dinosaurhat last night. Unfortunately it's been dark & rainy here the last few days so my lighting hasn't been great...I may need to invest in a lightbox soon!

Just finished up this super cute #wednesdayaddams hat and collar for a little newborn's first #halloween

Taking the day away from packing and moving things to finish up a few #customorders. I found this great documentary on Netflix- The Royal House of Windsor. I've always been immensely interested in #britishhistory - especially the reign of the #Tudors so much so that I named my daughter after #QueenElizabethI πŸ˜„ More recently I've found myself searching out information about the current #QueenElizabethII πŸ‘‘ What's something that piques your interest??

In case anybody was wondering- this is what a dresser full of yarn (minus the many skeins I have downstairs) all packed up looks like. It hurts me to see them all squished up like this 😭😭😭

I had the opportunity to chaperone on my daughter's very first kindergarten field trip this morning. Her class and 2 others went to the McDougal Orchard for apple picking. It was so much fun and I'm so glad I was able to do this with her. Now to get some work done before I have to pick the little booger up from school πŸ˜„πŸŽπŸŒ³πŸ

This pair of cabled arm warmers is headed to the Pacific Northwest! It's been so long since I've done cables that I forgot how much I love them!!

Please excuse the bad lighting and my messy workspace- I've been at the new house all day today painting my daughter's room and hanging blinds so my current living space is quite disorganized.
