The left over yarn from Kyle's Christmas stocking has been magically transformed into delicious play fruit! I am having so much fun knitting food, that I am dyeing more yarn RIGHT NOW, so I can make more food. I will be selling it, along with my diapers and other goodies at my mom's group holiday fair!

A Big Sock for a Small Boy

I finished Kyle's Christmas stocking on Saturday. What does that mean? It means that I cranked out that sucker in under a week...Mad skillz....

It is the "Mix and Match Stocking" from the "Knit Christmas Stockings!" book. Unfortunately, the book is pretty much useless except for that pattern. The sock features a "peasant heel" which I am now a major fan of! It's so much easier than all that heel flap and gusset business. Google it, you'll see what I mean.

The argyle and stripes were not in the book, but I liked them so I drew up a chart for the argyle and put it in. A little argyle never hurt anyone, right?

Happy Yarn

I went to JoAnn's to pick up some yarn for Kyle's Christmas stocking. Unfortunately, the selection was even lamer than expected! I had the choice of white, brown or brown yarn...yay...

So, I thought this might be a good time to try dyeing my own yarn. I picked up a couple skeins of Paton's Classic Wool, since it was on sale. When I got home, I found these super easy instructions for dyeing wool with food coloring.

I love how it turned out! I will be dyeing lots and lots of yarn in the future!

Ardenwood Ren Faire

Hubby doesn't do ren fairs, so I went with my brother and sister, and enjoyed a toddler free couple of hours.


*I was charged the "teen" entrance fee. The guy didn't even bother to ask my age. I will be 27 next month.

*The jousting was awesome.

*The mango lemonade was good.

*We didn't get lost driving there, or lose the car in the parking lot.

*The crazy dragon costume guy.


*No shade= Wicked sunburn.

*Not enough vendors/ shows/ activities.

*Too many people in regular clothes. Seriously, why go if you are not going to dress up?

*Weak belly dancing.

*REALLY disorganized layout.
