My Creative Space

I have been knitting this week. Not as much as I wish I could, but a little here and there has yielded a few finished items...

I made a few more little hoods. And as soon as I can convince the kids to give me some smiles on camera I will add this style to my Etsy. Even the bribes didn't work today....

Case and point....

Doesn't he just look Sooo happy...

Sophie didn't complain as much but she refused to sit still even for a second. Seems the dog chasing rocks that Shay was throwing was just about the best thing ever. I guess at this age I should be happy with anything..

I give it a week  or two and this girl will be walking...

I'm in trouble now...


I did finish my first knit scarf.  And since the oldest daughter has a hurt ankle I knew I could get her to stay in one place. However she was not happy about having to hop 10 ft to get there.

But my oh my, I did get a smile out of her. Just this one though and thankfully I snapped this gem of a pic right up.
Is it me or does this look like a magazine shot?

Maybe I am just being mom here but I love it.

She cut her bangs without my permission and I couldn't be upset because I think they are just darling.
Funny though, she did try to hide it from me and wore a hat. I spied her bangs when she quickly took it off for a second and didn't let her know until the hubby got home and told her to show dad her bangs. She looked at me with astonishment.."How did you know?"  When will they learn we have eyes in the back of our heads?


That's all folks, hope you are having a wonderful week...
Remember to hop on over to Kirsty's if you haven't yet..

What beautiful children you have! My goodness, smiles or no smiles. That is definitely a magazine cover and the bangs are fantastic. The hoods are precious and the scarf is the berries!

Fruitful Fusion said...

Yeah, kids just don't get it! And for some reason, they just have to cut their own hair somewhere along the way! But that shot most certainly looks like one from a magazine!
