2nd Blanket for No Kill Shelter

Today is rough, it is raining and old bones are not happy. Instead of crocheting on a "G" hook today I am knitting on 17" knitting needles, easier on the hurting hands. But I have one more Blanket done
I am still going to make 6 blankets for the shelter before Christmas...I may have to learn to knit with my feet..LOL. This is where the biting off more than I can chew comes in...
Oh well, come on snow. I am waiting to be snowed in and knitting and being happy not to have to be out in it.
I am getting me ready to join Weight Watchers again. This time I want to learn and change habits, not just diet. I know my biggest challange is portions ( would you like to supersize that?), and being addicted to sweets.
I am waiting till they offer free regisration, they ususally do at the first of the year. And starting a notebook for recipes, tips and stuff like that.

Save The Children

This is for Save the Children.

Hat for American Indian

I made this hat for an American Indian who lives on a reservation. Our American Indians live in poverty and I hope this keeps one head a little warmer.
It was donated thru All Crafts 4 Charity and if you have hands and a skill, please look them up and do one thing for them.

This is for a local no kill shelter. The animal gets the blankie while they are there, then takes it to their new home when they are adopted.

This is for Kato and Murphy Brown. Two dogs who let me love them.

Today is a day of studing for my next test. Making some squares and putting something in the slow cooker.
It had turned from Indian Summer into cold. I am close to the river and like to take my puppies for walks down by the river. This time of year the wind off of the water is cold, and will get worse as the days roll on.

I started my great grandbaby due in April a Granny Square blanket yesterday afternoon. It is in pastel colors and a pattern based on the button pattern.
I also will make one square for charity for each one I make for him/her. That way two babies will get a new blanket.
When I get off work today, I am going to get a bag ready to take tomorrow to make up a class I missed Monday, then to a job interview. Part time job..thank you economy.
All day tomorrow is about school and getting ready for a test on Monday. Then we start getting ready to take the final exam.
Does it make sense that I am taking a final exam and getting a second great grandchild?
All for today

Today is going to be busy. I work full time and take a tax class. Today is school and I will be running from now 8:34 am till late tonight.
I also knit and crochet for my family and for charity. So in my spare time today I will work on that.
So far I am pretty boring, but this is my first post.
I am working on a little pink sweater for charity, along with squares to send off before December.
I also have a test to study for and the final is right before Thanksgiving.
All for now!
