Wow! How Time Flies When Your Having Fun As A Nana!
Seems like yesterday that I finished knitting the Baby Surprise Jacket.
I started it in March in a BSJ Class...I knew I was going to be a Nana in September.
And I knew the baby was a BOY!
SusanB-Knits made the Cap and Socks to match!
Surprise!!! It's Jackson in his Baby Surprise Jacket and Cap!
Perfect Fit! Perfect Timing!! Perfect Weather!!
If your baby is...Beautiful and Perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time, then you are the Nana...
...and the Papa!! We are having such a fun time with our Grandson Jackson!
It's been a busy November, and SuKnitWitty really has been Knitting!
And Re-Doing the Kitchen!
And Working in Fort Stockton!
And Playing with Jackson!
The Really BIG NEWS!!!! Finished the PAIR of Fingerless Gloves!!! Yeeeesssss!
THREE....count them...THREE HeadBands! SuKnitWitty really does KNIT!
A Triangle Shawl on the Needles and a WorkInProgress!!!!
The SOCK and it's 1/4 Knitted Mate!
The 3/4 Knitted Lacy Scarf!
The Interweave Sweater!
And OK OK OK....I started another pair of Fingerless Gloves!
I just couldn't help myself after finishing the first pair,
and SusanB gave me this YummyYarn!
And.....Life is Good!
For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --
For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Here's wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Ultimate Yarn Scrapper!
Nope, it's not SuKnitWitty!
It's Wednesday Trio Knitter Gina!
She's on a 'No Scrap Left Behind Quest' with the crocheting of this scrappy afghan.
Then there's the Ultimate MustMatch-MustBalance-MustBlend Knitress!
Nope, Again! It's Not SuKnitWitty!
It's Wednesday Trio Knitter Susan-B!
She's on a 'Perfect or Pick It Out Quest' with this Perfectly Coordinated Layette.
Then There's the Ultimate Lucky KnitWit!
That'd be SuKnitWitty, the Wednesday Trio Knitter who is Lucky to have
TWO Friends to Knit with on Wednesdays.
There is nothing that does a knitter's heart more good than
finding friends who knit.
There is little that is more fun than sitting with someone who cares about you, laughs at your jokes and truly wants to have a
two-hour conversation on the aspects of having
'Second Sock Syndrome'.
Speaking of SSS, I think a 'Cure' may be close at 'HiyaHiya Hand'.
As you can see, the 'SufferingSock' has been removed from the 'VoodoDPN's'
and now reside on the 9" HiyaHiya Circular Needles.
AND...THE SECOND SOCK has a cuff and over an inch of ankle length
knitted on the Second HiyaHiya Circulars.
I am so optimistic about this SSS Cure that
I've embarked on 'Another Pair'....
....of Fingerless Gloves! Yep, and the first one is nearly finished...that's the one with the VoodoDPN's on the thumb!
The SECOND one is on #3 straights with just the thumb opening and hand left to knit! Yahoo!!! I'm so happy to not be struck down with SGS...
With SSS pretty much conquered and the threat of SGS pretty much outta the picture, I'm Inspired by my Knitting Friends, Gina and Susan,
to 'Go Where SuKnitWitty Dared Not Go Before'.
That'd be Charts and Cables! And it's FINISHED!
This 'Cable and Bobble Headband' from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts
was knitted in an afternoon! Really!!!
Thank the Knitting Goddess that ONE Headband covered BOTH ears!
