Sweater progress!!

I can't believe it...I actually finished the back and left front of Mr. C's sweater! I am starting on the right front now. Should be done this weekend. My Grandma would be so proud. I don't know if she ever knits clothing. Washcloths and crocheted blankies yes, but I think maybe she made me and my sister some sweater vests when we were kids. Oh yeah you know the ones. If you were alive in the 80's you remember the Sweater Vest! V-neck and maybe some stripes...

Oh the horror. At least when the 80's styles came back it was more the Madonna style than Grandma's knitted vest style. Oh yeah I KNOW you remember!

On another note: I am just wondering why I am so stupid that I can't get My blog to look as cool as other peoples. I mean, I tried to list the sites I like to check out on a regular basis and so I go to the Blogger Knowledge page and follow the steps and it never works! I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong! I need to take a friggin' computer course just to figure this shit out! I need to learn how to link to other sites, too. I'm just lost. Also I know no one else but me is reading this so I won't have any fellow friendly blogger say "Hey Heather here's how it goes". Oh well, I'm a retard.

Sweater pics as promised

Well, here is a picture of the sweater I'm working on for Mr. C such as it is. It was a free pattern from Lion Brand website. It's a cardi that you knit back to front in one piece to the neck and then continue on with LS and come back and finish RS. It's a little sloppy, yes. But hey this is my first attempt dammit. The Fabulous Miss M will want something next. Lion has a new bolero pattern that I think would be cute and should be long enough on her to be more of a cardi. I have to get started on Halloween first.

Lookie...he fell asleep while I was cooking dinner.I guess I need to add a little zest to my cooking or something. Apparently I'm not very interesting to watch. Posted by Picasa

I think this is so cool...Conner loves Dave Matthews almost as much as I do. He actually dances whenever we watch this concert DVD. To Gene's chagrin. Mmwhahaha Posted by Picasa

Bounty of harvest

The pics below are from this spring when our apple tree was blooming and then this month with all the beeoootiful apples we picked. I don't know how many we got but it was a lot! I made apple crisp and pie and they were oh-so-yummy!!! This was our first harvest in the 4 years we have lived here. In '03 we had a tree full but the major hail storm knocked them all off. I was so sad! But, these are the best for cooking...very tart and crisp. My fave.

I have been in a crafty mood lately...well, knitty mood I should say. Been working on a little sweater for Mr. Conner. It's my first and I must say it is not too bad! I have been totally on gauge the whole time! I am soooo proud of myself... will post pics later... I have to get started on Meghan's costume. She's going to be Sailor Moon! I spent an un-Godly amount of money for a pattern on ebay but it should be cool. And hopefully no other litttle girls want to be Sailor Moon!
I cannot fo rthe life of me figure out what to make for Conner. He's walking so I cant do the cute little peapod thingys. He won't leave anything on his head so hats are out. Hmmm....crap.

Well, I totally need to go to bed. It's 2 AM! Jeez! Good tomorrow is Saturday. Conner just got up for a little snack (no he does not sleep through the night yet. He still has to get a little tittie in the middle of the night, thank you very much) so maybe I can get a coupl'a hours in before he wants another snack...we'll see. Now. Must. Shut. The. Hell. Up!

Nite nite all!
