A little of this; A little of that

Hello world.

I feel really behind in my blogging! Wow, it has been a while. The summer is over in the blink of an eye. We are getting ready for some big changes. My little man, N is going to kindergarten. How is that even possible? His last day at daycare is tomorrow. He is excited about all the changes but still asking a lot of questions. Before he starts school little man gets his tonsils out. Ugh, I know it is routine and necessary but I always worry I am making the wrong decision. I will just be glad when the day has come and gone! 
One last adventure before we go back to the new semester, we are headed on vacation with another family from daycare. We are headed up North to the beautiful Door County. I am so excited to just ride bikes, eat, sleep, be in the pool and turn my mind off for a few days. I will have lots of pictures to show once we return.
I have been a bit overwhelmed with the number of WIPS I have lately! I started finishing them up one by one. Since the last time I blogged, I have finished 2 pairs of socks. 

 Two coworkers have had babies this past summer. I found out a bit late that their wives were expecting so I had to make something quick and super cute! I love cables and it is very cold in WI during the winters so a cute little (not too little so it still fit in the winter) hat. Here is what I went with

 Here is my current WIPS: 

 and here is the stash I am dying to jump into!!!

My partner in crime, M has been super busy enjoying some dying and creating.  With the distance between us I have not been very helpful but once you see her yarns, she does not need any help! They turned out wonderful. Please check them out for yourself:

If you want to stay up-to-date with her new products, like us on Facebook

As for books, I finished Girl on the Train and Inferno. Both we great reads. I started Digital Fortress and cannot put it down.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Thanks for reading until the end, it was a long update.


  1. You did a great job on the quick and cute projects! Nice stash - I would be itching to dive into that myself.

  2. Love the socks and the baby hat. Don't know how you can resist that yarn - loving the purple.

  3. They grow up so fast. I hope Little Man heals quickly from the surgery and that Kindergarten is a great pleasure for him. Those are sweet, sweet days.

  4. I was in Door County last week, and it is wonderful! Do you know about the Hands On Studio just north of Egg Harbor. I took my kids there when they were younger and they loved it! Two other families on our block were in DC in the past few weeks! Have a great trip!
