It's like the holy land, but with pork

I hope all you Mom's had a wonderful Mother's Day. I wanted to share the card my son gave to me. Ha ha! He knows me so well. I love that little boy so much!

We are leaving for Memphis, TN eeeeeeeeearly tomorrow morning...we are talk'in the ass "crack of dawn". I'm so stoked to see Graceland, enjoy brews & blues and pig out on Memphis BBQ I don't even care that I've got to get up @ eeek 4:30 am. See ya in week with lots of pics!
Almost forgot! I have a new Nephew! Born this past Tuesday. Mom and baby are doing excellent. (I'm totally on the search for mini blue suede shoes) AND.....I was chosen as a test knitter for Knit Picks last week as well! It was a good, make that a great week! Now off to worship at the shrine that is Graceland...uh huh- uh huh!

Worm hole or..........

Alien abduction? I'm not really sure what happened to April. So here's what I've been up to. Lots o'knitting................... I've been knitting for the new baby that will arrive this Tuesday. My little niece/nephew tootsies will stay toasty in these for sure!
Stash busting squares from left over sock yarn for the barn raising quilt from Knitalong.
Socks for my son ~ These socks and the square above are knit from the same skein. It pooled something awful on the socks, but the square shows the hand painting off so beautifully.
Everlasting bag stopper for my cousin ~ and three more completed I have yet to photograph. These bags are so roomy, I take two with me everywhere and am just about plastic bag free!
Socks for me and Grey's Anatomy viewing. It's sKNITches syncopation sock yarn in colorway 'seriously?'. The yarn is self-striping, but I wanted to get a different look with it. I found the pattern on Ravelry called 'Circle Socks'.
Knitting for a June bride. This is for my friend Connie's bachelorette party. It's blocking and still needs a ribbon. Such a cute, flirty, sexy pattern.....I have the same yarn in red, so I will definitely knit this up again!

For the home. Lace curtains for the bathroom window. The pattern is from Knit Picks - Cafe curtains. I will post another picture when I finally get around to hanging them. More for the baby. A little "Take me home" set. The hat is from Stitch N Bitch 'umbilical cord hat' and the kimono is from Mason Dixon Knitting. Both are knit with blue Sky cotton.
Jumped on the Meat Head train and knit up a child size in blue sky bulky. And can I just say that as much as I love the color of this yarn and the's the buttons that make it. C'mon, who doesn't love bug eyed froggies???
Whew! I guess that's it for now. Little baby this Tuesday and Memphis in May the following Tuesday. Life is good. ;)
