I snagged this pic from my daughter's blog. It doesn't get any better than this. Look at Little Joey laughing at Santa.

Friday, December 28, 2007


What a quick knit. Another pair of fetching from Knitty. My 16 year old grandaughter snagged the first pair I made--so I made another pair. These only took about 5 hours to make the whole pair. Definitely a great last minute gift idea. Happy Knitting. By the way--you can see the 16 year old grandaughter in the pic below.

Merry Christmas

Had a great day with my husband's family today. Will have a great day with my family tomorrow. We do Christmas with my kids, their kids, my Mom, my Aunt, My bro and his wife and their 2 kids and 4 grandkids the day after Christmas every year. We will have a house full. My girls take turns hosting every year--I would love to host but live 30 to 40 miles from everyone and we feel if the weather turns bad it is better for only one family to be driving far. So--hope everyone had a great holiday.

My very first Fetching Fingerless Mitts. From summer 2006. Such a quick knit. Made this one in an evening. So this pair is half done. I had never worked with waste yarn before, and it wasn't as scary as I thought. I made this with Bernat Alpaca. love it, love it, love it. Will probably make the other one tonight after all my work is done. I do have all gifts wrapped and am cleaning house today. Hope to rest tomorrow and do food prep Monday. Bought cookies from my daughter. Doing Christmas with my husband's family Christmas Day and with my Family Wed. Can't wait to see everyone. After all, Christ and family is what Christmas is all about. Happy knitting to all and a Very Merry Christmas.

Socks Finished

Well I have been knitting socks for a little over a year now--and this is my first perfect match ever!!! They have all been close--but this is--well--perfecto!!

Another Family Day

What a difference 3 weeks makes. He sure is growing. My daughters Toni and Kelly, my Mom, and myself babysat little Joey while his Mom and Dad finished up some Christmas shopping. Two cousins, little 5 year old Alli and 13 year old Allen were also in attendance. What a joy and privilege. Toni was the official diaper changer!! The rest of us laughed and said, "We hold, we feed, we play with, but we don't do diapers." Good thing Toni was there. (Just a joke of course) We had a great day sharing each other's company and laughing about the good old days when my kids were small. And of course my mom told some wild tales about my brother and I. Great day had by all. Also got to visit with Andi and Big Joey after they got home. Poor Toni got called away early because one of her boys was throwing up at school. Ahh, those days are gone for me.. Well just thought I'd share a little eye candy and some of the good things in life. Hope you all have a great day--and--Happy Knitting.

wild turkeys

The turkeys are here. We had tons and tons of them last winter. They are really big. The not so good pics are taken off my back porch through a window with a screen. The clear pic is out the side window without the screen. If I open the door to take pics they run away--so this is what I got. Aren't they neat?

Oh No Another Quiz

You Are Emerald Green

Deep and mysterious, it often seems like no one truly gets you.

Inside, you are very emotional and moody - though you don't let it show.

People usually have a strong reaction to you... profound love or deep hate.

But you can even get those who hate you to come around. There's something naturally harmonious about you.

Of course found this on another blog. I am emerald green and pretty accurately describes me. I am a pretty intense personality.


Well--I am not the greatest photographer in the world--but here it is--the Christmas tree. If you look closely--or click to enlarge the pic--you will see a hand crocheted tree skirt under the tree--crocheted by me--and a little knitting in the backround. Merry Christmas to all.

Winter is here

I work on a PRN basis (as needed) and pretty much pick up when I want to work, and I swear on my Bible that I always seem to pick up the worst weather days to work. I guess I shoudn't complain as I only live 3 1/2 miles from work. The trip in at 2 pm was when the snow really started and the winds picked up and I could barely see. And all the snow came while I was there--probably about 6 to 8"--knee high when I cleaned off my car to come home. My 5 minute drive took 15 minutes d/t drifting--I live very country. The pic of my car is what we got after 11pm last night, and I had already cleaned off the 6-8" the night before. The geese on our lake are waking up--they were sleeping there when I got up--was not dressed yet to take pics. I also saw 5 wild turkeys streaming their way behind our pole barn. Last year I counted 78 turkeys and quit counting. Country living definitely allows you to see a lot of wildlife. It is gorgeous--but how I hate driving in it. But, Thank God, I got home safe and sound to a nice warm house that I know some people do not even have--and I drove in a nice warm dependable car. How grateful I should be. The pics of the lake are from my driveway and back porch. The flag pole is in the front yard from the driveway. Happy winter and happy knitting.


If you are looking for someone to visit--you can visit my Daughter's Blog. She is a Christian SAHM who homeschools 3 boys. You will also find a small amount of knitting content. Two of my girls are crafty like their mom. Enjoy

Too Funny

For those of you who are addicted to knitting I saw this on purlygirls blog and thought it was too funny--my husband said "You should post it on your blog" so I did. There goes my PG rating--but watcha gonna do. ROFLMAO.

Are you a nerd?

I am a cool non nerd. Ahh well I gues that is what happens when you get old. April had this on her site. Just a fun little test to see if you are a nerd. says I'm a Cool Non-Nerd.  What are you?  Click here!

Wednesday, December 12, 2007


Finally some knitting content. Haven't done much knitting the past 2 or 3 months d/t new baby, family illnesses, injuries, and surgery, but here is what I have got done. The top socks are made from a regia Jaquard wool blend from a combination of the 56 st 56 row sock pattern and the basic sock pattern by Edie Eckman in the book Learn to Knit Socks. In fact all three of the pair posted are made from a combination of these 2 patterns. I love knitting socks because it is so easy to do what you want with them. Lost the ball band for the middle pair but it is a regia cotton blend. The bottom pair is from opal sock yarn--and once again misplaced the ball band. I really do try to keep track of the ball bands for when I post--but alas--lost again. Well Merry Christmas and Happy Knitting to all.

You Are an Angel

A truly giving soul, you understand the spirit of Christmas.

I am an angel. Go here to see what kind of Christmas ornament you are. Thx Jane.

Friday, December 7, 2007


Something was changed in my settings. Don't know how that happened. There was nowhere to post comments on new posts. When I post this we shall see if I fixed it. When I went in to fix it I had a devil of a time getting the allow comments on new posts to stay. Hopefully it works.

Thursday, December 6, 2007


I just would like to clarify the blog post below. Until I was in my mid 50's I loved winter. I used to love to play in the snow, go toboganning (spelling?) make snowmen and all that stuff. Loved to ice skate in my teens and early 20's. Now the cold makes my joints ache. So I just dress warmly.

A Week Gone By

A little eye candy for ya. He keeps getting bigger and cuter all the time. They are just too sweet when they are little.
Had a really busy week last week. Realized on Tuesday that I was going away for the weekend to a spiritual retreat that I forgot all about--so rushed around getting ready to go. Thought about not going, but it was already paid for. Went Wed. and with my middle daughter and got to baby sit the baby while his mom went to the library. She only stayed gone about 1/2 hr. or 45 minutes then came back and we all had a nice visit. Thursday did laundry and packed for the weekend. Went on the weekend which was really much needed. The time away from phones, TV, etc did me good. Some people actually brought their laptops. I don't know about you--but 3 days away from all of that was really great. I did, though, finish a sock while I was there--so I guess I can't say too much. But it is so easy to knit and listen to the speakers at the same time. It actually helps keep me focused.
Christmas sure is creeping up fast. Need to do my Christmas shopping--don't know why--but I just cannot seem to get into it this year.
We are getting some nasty weather right now--but the reports I hear and the blogs I read tell me that to the the west of us and to the east of us it is much worse--so I will not complain. Winter isn't my favorite time of year as I get older. I never used to mind it, but the cold really gets to my old bones anymore. So I stay indoors as much as I can and dress warm.
Happy knitting.

Hey there is a great contest over at Grammieknits and all you have to do is tell her one weird thing about yourself and post a link to her contest. She is giving some great prizes. What fun.

Yummy Yummy

I am going to my daughter's Wed.--my baby daughter who is 34. LOL. My middle daughter and I are gonna baby sit the baby so she can do her term paper at the library. Can't wait. Anyhoo, last night I dreamed about this dish all night long--so guess what I am Making it to take Wed. for lunch. My husband doesn't care for sour cream or cheese so I can't wait to eat it. It is delicious. I got the recipe from my oldest daughter and it is a family favorite among us girls. It is called Creamy Chicken and Rice. I am not sure where she got the recipe, but enjoy.It takes me about an hour to put it together but is well worth it.

Creamy Chicken and Rice
4 c. cooked rice
1/2 cup butter or margarine, divided
1/4 c. flour
2 c. milk
2 teas. chicken bouillon granules
1/2 to 1 teas season salt
1/2 teas garlic powder
1/4 teas pepper
4 to 5 cups cubed cooked chicken
12 ounces process American cheese, cubed
2 c. (16 oz.) sour cream
1 1/4 c. crushed butter-flavored crackers (about 32)
Spread rice into a greased 9x13 baking dish; set aside. In a saucepan, melt 1/4 c. butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk, bouillon, season salt, garlic powder and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; add chicken, cheese and sour cream; stir until the cheese is melted. Pour over rice. Melt the remaining butter; toss with cracker crumbs. Sprinkle over casserole. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.

Baby Joey baptized in the Catholic Faith today. Pics of Mom, Dad, and Brothers and Sister. It was a great day. Had a wedding feast for lunch!! Congratulations!

Someday this blog will revert to knitting again--instead of a Baby Joey Blog--when I have more time to do it. Have finished a coupla pairs of socks but since they are gifts they will not be posted till much later. I have also gotten the wrap sweater that I am working on for my 5 year old grandaughter about half done. There are lots of sweaters that I selfishly want to make for myself after Christmas--but too too busy right now.

Bought a new prelighted Christmas tree and it is up awaiting decorations. Maybe later in the week. I am usually done with all my Christmas shopping by now and I haven't even started yet. Getting more and more like my husband in my old age. It has been a really hectic couple of months with new baby, my back injury, husband's knee surgery etc. Hopefully things will calm down soon. I know that it can always be worse. Am now getting over a nasty head cold--so didn't hold the baby today--but Wed. my middle daughter and I are babysitting so Andi can finish a term paper for school. She said she is going to take next semester off. Now remembers how much work a new baby is. Well Happy Knitting To All.

Country Living

Last night when I came home about 10:00 PM there were 4 deer off the the side of our driveway--and they just stood there watching me. Gotta love country living. Of course in NE Ohio the deer are also overpopulating our urban areas also. They are defintely magnificent animals. Just another thing to be grateful for, that I can enjoy all the things around me. Happy Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


Bark n Knitis having a contest over at her blog. Just let her know what you are thankful for and make sure you mention me so I get another entry. It ends at midnight Nov. 25. It is a great time of year to remember all we have to be grateful for.


Thanksgiving is almost upon us. And, as always there is a lot to be grateful for. My husband had outpatient knee surgery today to repair a torn meniscus--they also removed some floating cartiledge. Not sure I spelled that one right and I'm a nurse. Ahh well--ortho is not what I do. I do mentally retarded and developmentally delayed children and have for the last 15 years. Sorta lost track of the other stuff. He has to do nothing but keep it elevated for the next 2 days with ice--he is allowed to weight bear and walk to the bathroon--kitchen--bed etc--only when necessary. He said even with the pain from the surgery--it feels better than it did--and that is a lot to be grateful for. We have a brand new healthy grandson to be grateful for--in fact between the 2 of us we have 12 healthy grandchildren to be grateful for. I have Mom who is healthier than I am and she is 82 and will be here for Thanskgiving. She is spending the night Wed. I am sure we will have a great visit. My husband's daughter will be here for Thanksgiving. I will be cooking--not what we originally had planned--but due to the surgery will be unable to travel to the restaurant we were going to. I am grateful I can cook. I am grateful I no longer work full time and don't have to work. I have worked a lot of Thanksgivings in the past. Life is good--and even when it isn't I can always find something to be grateful for. We spent Sunday and Monday at a funeral home and cemetery. A really good friend of ours lost her Husband on Wed. Came home from work and found him dead. Thank goodness she has a large loving family to support her. I am sure it will be a tough holiday for her--keep her in your prayers. Happy Tnaksgiving to all. Sorry no pics. Hope to once again be knitting next week.

Precious Moments

Here he is. Healthy as can be, and we love him so much. I got to see all my children and my Mom yesterday and it was a great day. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. My husband is having knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus next Tuesday, so it changed our plans a bit--but no big deal. We have a whole lot to be grateful for. We found out that one of our friends lost her husband on Wed. night so will be busy the weekend. Calling hours Sunday and Funeral Monday. Kinda puts life in perspective about what's important and what isn't. Haven't done much knitting or crocheting. I am sure it will pick back up soon. Gotta go clean now. Happy knitting to all.

Knitting Socks

Well--now that the cascade socks are finished I have another pair half done. Much faster when you like what you are knitting. No pics as they will be a surprise for someone--pics will follow after Christmas. Still having back and leg pain--but am going to try and work today. I am sure that by 11:30 tonight I will be sorry I did this--but who knows--maybe it will help. I do have a Dr.'s appt. Tuesday--so maybe we can find the cause of this. I have been considering a chiropractor, but figure I better make sure of the extent of the injury first. I am not a great believer in chiropractors due to the stretching they do and wonder if this is good in the long term. My step daughter uses one regularly. Well we had a big surprise party for my husband last night at an amish restaurant. My stepdaughter planned it all and did a great job. It was great. He didn't have a clue. Just thought his daughter was taking him out to dinner like she does every year. He was absolutely dumbfounded!!! As I said it was great--a real hoot!!!!! It isn't everyday you turn 70. Well gotta run and get ready for work. Happy knitting to all.

Friday, November 9, 2007

Cascade Fixation Socks

Well the Fixation Socks are finally done!!!!Yay!!!! My Aunt Edna will get her sox for Christmas after all!!!!! In Answer to your question Eileen I guess the reason that I did not enjoy knitting with this yarn--I don't like the feel of it for sox or the stretchiness-I just found it difficult for me to work with. I have not been on the computer much due to back and leg pain. Have missed 2 days of work due to the pain--not like me. Not complaining though--just stating facts. I have learned to be grateful for what I have in spite of the bad things in life. You can check this out on Mandy's blog. I love her blog. She has a great outlook on life. She also has some great yarns in her etsy shop. Well enough about me. I hope you all are having a great day!!! Happy knitting to all. By the way--Little Joey is doing great and thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. He will be baztized on Nov. 25.

Cascade Fixation Socks

Finally, I have these socks almost finished. I have to do the toe decreases, graft the toe and the second sock will be done. I have not enjoyed working with this yarn!!! I hope my aunt will like her Christmas present. Am itching to start a new project that I will enjoy. Happy Knitting.

Happy Birthday

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Today is my husband's 70th birthday. Big one for him. I am 12 years behind him--70 seems pretty young right now. I can remember when I thought 30 was old!! Happy Birthday Dave!!!

Friday, November 2, 2007

Cascade Fixation Socks

One down and one to go. Actually, the second sock is about half done. I am making these for my aunt who is allergic to wool-acrylic-etc. I don't particularly like working with this yarn and was going to abandon these socks and make her a cotton scarf--but decided to finish them after all. Everyone does need at least one pair of hand knit socks, right??? I sprained my back sometime between Wed. and Thurs.--not real sure how, but have been in quite a bit of pain the last 2 days---hopefully will feel better tomorrow. Called off work today--which I rarely do--but kind of hard to be a nurse when you can't even walk. Have not gotten any knitting done the last 2 days. Ah well. My husband actually fixed supper last nite--weiners and beans--but at least I didn't have to cook it. Happy knitting to all.

Little Joey

Well here he is. All healthy and at home. Thx everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. I finally got to hold him Wednesday for more than a coupla seconds. He is absolutely adorable and cuddly, and of course getting very spoiled.

Tuesday, October 30, 2007


There is a contest at Tangled Up In Knots Of course I entered. It is really simple Check it out and don't forget to let her know I sent you so I get another entry. Thx so much. Happy knitting.

Hot Air Balloon

I was ironing when my DH called me to hurry up and come outside. And there it was--a hot air balloon right over our lake. How exciting. The camera was in the car and I managed to get these 3 shots just before it landed behind the trees--we figured at a neighbors farm. We are in the country. It was lovely to see!!!

The Weekend

Wow did it get cold here last night. Not sure how cold, but it is 9:30 am and our thermometer reads 36 degrees now. The weather man said it could get down into the 20's BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Winter is coming!!!! Little Joey came home from the hospital on Friday and is doing really well. Poor little thing. Now, I am dating myself, but when I had my kids they made us stay in the hospital 5 days--and by then that jaundice thing was taken care of if there was a problem. His bilirubin came down and he gained back the weight he lost so all is well on the home front.

Mu husband took me on a suprise overnight stay Friday into Saturday. We stayed in a motel in Bolivar, Oh and spent the day lounging around the pool and in the hot tub, then we had dinner Friday night at the Atwood Lodge. It is a lovely area and a really nice restaurant. Saturday we did a little walking and shopping in Sugar Creek, Oh. Then we went to Walnut Creek, Oh and had lunch at the Der Dutcman Restaurant. Then we went to Kidron, Oh to Lehman's Hardware Store. This is a mammoth store that caters to the amish but draws lots of visitors from all over. Really a unique place to visit. Ohio really is a beautiful state. Well gotta run. Happy knitting to all.

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Little Joey

Just a quick post. Poor little Joey is off to a rough start in life. He went back to the hospital last night for Jaundice. The biliblanket they had at home was not bringing down his bilirubin count. But with the bililight and IV it is now down from 21.5 to 16.2. When it gets down to 12 he can go back home. This is probably harder on mom and dad than it is on him--he still looks good other than being a little yellow. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Another Day

No pics today. Very busy weekend. Just thought I would let all know that little Joey has a broken collar bone--from delivery. They have to keep his sleeve pinned up some how. Being as young as he is I know that he will heal quickly, Otherwise he is a healthy baby and mom and baby are home and doing fine. Thank you all for your comments and prayers etc. Have not gotten any knitting done since the birth. Worked yesterday--wasn't a particularly fun day at work--but I still like my job. They pay us to work, not have fun::snort:: Had teeth cleaned this morning. Yay!! And am going to make a lasagna casserole to take to my daughter's on Thursday Here is the recipe. It is easy, delicious, and feezes well and microwaves well.

Lasagna Casserole

1 pound ground beef
¼ cup chopped onion
½ tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Pepper
1 pound medium shell pasta. Cooked and drained
1 pound (4 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 carton (24 oz.) small-curd cottage cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. Dried parsley flakes
1 jar (26 oz.) spaghetti sauce.

In a skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender; drain. Sprinkle with salt and ¼ tsp. Pepper; set aside. In a large bowl combine pasta, 3 cups mozzarella cheese, cottage cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese, parsley flakes and remaining pepper; stir gently. Pour into a greased 13” x 9” x 2” or shallow 3-qt. Baking dish. Top with the beef mixture, then the spaghetti sauce, and the remaining cheese, (dish will be full.) Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes Bake uncovered 15 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yield 6-8 servings.

I use more hamburger, mozarella cheese, and sauce than recipe calls for.

Well gotta run and get to work Happy knitting to all

Little Joey Has Arrived

Little Joey arrived at 1:52 pm today weighing in at 7 lb. 10 oz, 19" long Mom and baby are doing fine. He is just adorable--of course would gramma think anything else?? He is 2 hrs old in pic I posted of just him. Big Sister Ashly. 16 Y. O. proudly holds Little Joey and is already starting to spoil him rotten--what else do you do with a new baby. Big Bro Ian, 9 Y. O., also loves holding his baby brother. Nathanial, 11 Y. O. opted not to hold him. He is has high functioning autism and does not care a lot for a change in his routine--but I know that he will adjust. We are so happy he has been delivered and all are doing well. Thanks everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

Finished Poncho

The poncho is done. Even with everything that is going on here it was done in one week from start to finish. Not bad. And by the way--my user name at ravelry is luvtoknit


I can't believe it. As I was getting ready to go to the hospital to see my very pregnant baby daughter, I checked my e-mail, and there it was--my invite from frecklegirl to ravelry. How exciting. Maybe the weekend I will have time to explore and post--but it is baby time here. Hope to be in bed by midnight tonight as I plan to get up at 5:30 am to be back at hospital by 8:00 am (unless I get a phone call sooner.) They are going to start the ptocin aroud 1:30 to 2:00 am and plan to start very slowly. They are thinking maybe by noon tomorrow we shall see the baby--but you never know about these things. I did fill out my profile and set up a flickr acct. so I did do something--that was after the hospital. We are all very excited. Happy knitting to all.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007


Just a quick post. I was thinking that I might get invited to ravelry around Christmas. It looks like I might get invited quicker than I thought. Yesterday there were almost 1400 people ahead of me.

Grandchild #10

Well. It is official. Thurs. around noon my baby #4 will be entering the hospital to begin the process of gracing us with Grandchild # 10--Joseph Vincent A. II. They will give her a drug to prepare the cervix and then on Friday will begin ptocin. She has already lost her mucous plug and her cervix is 1 cm. dilated. Wish us luck and keep us in your prayers. Can't wait!!!!. I will post pics when they are available.

Gift socks and poncho

Just a few things I got done over the weekend between work and other obligations. I put in a pic of the sox I am making for my aunt for Christmas. The blue sock is from the pattern book--it is the basic sock pattern from the book "Learn To Knit Socks" by Edie Eckman--12 designs in sportweight yarn. It is from The American School of Needlework. She is allergic to acrylic and wool, so it is really hard to knit anything for her. It will be made from Cascade Fixation yarn. A pic is above of the sock on the needles. Not sure if I like it or not, but am sure that it will do. Also crocheted poncho is half done. It is 2 rectangles sewn together, Pic above. Well, plan to spend rest of the day doing housecleaning today and hopefully tomorrow sorting through summer and winter clothes--ugh. Ah well, needs done. Happy knitting to all.

Socks Modeled

Well here they are on a model--ignore the old legs and just look at the socks ::snort:: This is the first time worn and I will wear them all day. I will think of Myrtle Beach as I wear them in this lovely 50 degree weather--and I do like 50 degree weather very much!!! The last coupla days I have been visiting a blog called the Brownberry Chronicles. She has posed some very interersting questions. She also mentioned a yarn diet. I ask now what is a yarn diet. I tried one once. On Jan. 1, 2005 I made a resolution to not buy any more yarn until I used up what I have. Bought yarn by Jan. 4, 2005. That is my idea of a yarn diet. I have more yarn than I will ever knit up or crochet up in a lifetime. I have a friend who says, "He who dies with the most yarn wins." I have crates & crates of yarn and then some and crates and crates of patterns. My daughter once said that my yarn room is better than the Hobby Lobby (may have said this before--creeping senility). I have all the knitting needles--crochet hooks and accessories one could ever want. Now if I could just quit blogging and get off this danged computer--I could make use of all this wonderful stuff. I love reading other blogs and will continue to search around I am sure. Just another addiction. Happy knitting to all.

Thursday, October 11, 2007


Hi ho, hi ho. it's back to work I go. Well haven't worked in almost a month, 3 days shy of a month. I am and am not looking forward to going back. I could get real used to not working. But then again I love what i do and know that once i get there it won't be so bad. Thought I'd post a few pics while I had a chance. Myrtle Beach sox are finally done. Finished them 2 days ago and am keeping them as a souveneir since most of the work was done on them in Myrtle Beach. There is some progress on the wrap sweater--6" are done. Also started crochet poncho last night. Worked on it about an hour--have made so many of them that thought I could do it without pattern--well a frogging I did go. Oh well. It has been a while since I made one. I will make this without fringe. It is really pretty when done--will post a pic then. Hopefully in a week or so, but have a really full schedule. Am working 3 out of the next 4 days and doing dinner with DH's DD on Sat. Going to Hartville Kitchens--great place to go in Hartville, Oh. Can't wait. Well happy knitting to all.
