Jesse’s Armor – Part 2

Finally got some progress on this. I tried knitting it using 2 circs instead of the DPNs. I wanted to re-do the first one so I could test knitting 2 at once while I did the second once.

After frogging it about 10 times, I finally switched over to trying magic loop two at once and voila! progress… If I knit a bunch tonight, I might actually get them done in time for January’s A Loose Knit Group deadline.

We spent some of the week after Christmas in Alapaha, GA on the farm. The kids were really, really glad to see Granny and Papa and really enjoyed being outside.

Jesse also finally learned to ride a bike without training wheels, so he and Bailey did a LOT of bike riding while we were there.

Bailey finally got her purple, polka-dotted cow she’d been wanting.

Purple Polka Dotted Cow!

I took some knitting, but gave up when the hat I started was way, way too small and the needle snapped when I was working on the head of Bailey’s Furry Monster.

So, I played with my new digital camera. The old one would either take blurry pix or dark pix. The macro setting was really fun!
