After bringing Teen Queen to move in day in the middle of August, it was assumed that the next time we would see her would be for Thanksgiving Break. A SUPER LONG time! I have never been apart from my kids for very long. Rambo, sure no problem...a year deployment here, another year deployment there. But my KIDS?!?!? NO WAY!
Thank goodness for FALL BALL. She text me to say they were playing in Martin, TN on one Saturday. A four hour drive for me, but heck I get to see her and get to see her play at the next level in her Softball career! You know I made the drive!
In all this time I have been making crap. Of course I forgot to document a few items on my Ravelry, here and there. In any case, here ya go! Let's see, in February I left off with the Baby Granny Stripe...
Since then, there has been a Teen Queen Granny Stripe (not pictured), a Crazy Clown Granny Stripe, Bed Side Rug, Fat Pillow, and a Wicked Bright Ripple Wave blanket.

Then it was time for
Ravelympics eh hem, pardon me...RAVELLENIC GAMES. There was a big to do about the Olympic big wigs getting their under-roos in a wad over the use of Ravelympics and how it was too alike OLYMPICS...yaddah yaddah, blah blah blah. If you care to read about it you can find any number of articles here in this GOOGLE search.
My RAVELLENICS Projects consisted of; Wicked Poisonous Fruit Hat, Wicked Tsuga and Wicked Nice Sock. For which I 'medal-ed' in various categories. Categories are: Cable Steeplechase, Hat Dash, Sock Put, Shawl Sailing, Synchronized Stash Busting, and Single Skein Sprint. It was all in good fun and I was happy to get out of my knitting funk I had fallen into.

Once I was done with Ravellenics, I was onto a sock knitting bender. I knit up these 2 pairs of socks quickly. After which I cast on for a HOT PINK pair of socks for my friend Susan's birthday present. SHE LOVED THEM!!! Of course I was in such a rush to get them washed and blocked that I completely forgot to take a photo of them. *bummer*
Photo after it's washed and dried. Currently OTN (on the needles for you non knitter types) is WURM. a hat for a friend of a friend who has just been diagnosed with cancer. My dear friend asked if I would make a hat. I told her that I will make as many hats as she likes!
