Things are Cold!! I mean C-O-L-D... do you hear me?!? so I made Mr. Bean some mittens! I think they turned out cute! Thanks to Jackie for the pattern (how are your mittens coming along?)
Remember those Jaywalker socks I posted a start of back a couple post ago?? Well I worked and worked on them...got down to the foot... about an inch or so where I would decrease for the toe... AND RIPPED THEM BOTH OUT!!!!!!! Frogged the whole project... two socks on one needle, GONE! They just weren't feeling right and the ankle/heel area was tight. These are for my mother so I didn't want her to have to break a sweat trying to get the sock over her heel, so I frogged it!
Not much else has been going on. I should be able to start my Lady Eleanor stole soon. Almost have enough yarn to make it. I thought about starting but I want to get all the yarn so I can lay out how I want it since I'm using three different colorways of Noro's Silk Garden, and ya know that stuffs not cheap! woo! But it's going to be sooo pretty and comfy and nice (if mom doesn't steal it when she sees it LOL! she's my biggest fan!)
Hubby's been traveling so I've been a Stay at home Single mom for awhile. Know what.. Don't like it. I like having Brent around. I miss him when he's gone. The boys REAALLLY miss him when he's gone. I am not a good wrestler. Last night I just stood and watched as the boys jumped on the bed. You think I'm getting in there with those wild boys!! haha NOT happening. LOL
I missed the Manchvegas knitting group last week and filled that void with a visit to Concord's knitting group on Sunday. I had a good time there and got a little Manchvegas fill with Donna and Sarah both being there (and both being blogless that I know of.) I hope to swing by the book store this week and just say HI and maybe let the boys play with the train and knit one or two rows of what ever I'm working on. Just have to see how the day goes.
Hope all is well with everyone. Drop me a line! Lemme know you were here.

Frogged your jaywalkers! Bummer! Hey, everyone sounds and looks great. Sorry that Brent is away for a while, I've had to travel and leave hubby alone - he's the 1st to exclaim that it stinks! Anyway, sure do miss my beading buddy :)
