Surprised on Saturday!

Well.. I got a package yesterday.. a BIG one….

  When I opened it up.. or to be fair.. when my excited children opened it up this is what we found!


Book # 3 is out of the box!!

While on Amazon it is still on pre-order… you can get it now at the Annie’s website!

You might even have enough time to knit up one of the smaller blankets for someone for Christmas!

Later during the day.. my youngest son said.. I want to just jump into that box and cuddle up and close the lid! Now there is a nice testimonial!

Meanwhile my middle son, who has been asking nearly daily when these projects would be coming back to us, is quite happy..


Now you know why I wasn’t really blogging much from February through July!!! Very glad to be back at it!! Although… there is something else in the works that will be slowing me down again! Don’t worry, you will like it in the end!!

Bookish Thursday: Super Size Mine Please!

I was recently sent a copy of  Huge & Huggable Mochimochi: 20 Supersized Patterns for Big Knitted Friends by Anna Hrachovec.


And like all of Anna’s other books I LOVE it!

So many fun designs, and as usual; easy to follow patterns!

My kids have already requested items to be knit for them!

I think they might want this one to get out of really doing their handwriting practice!

If you like adorable creatures and inanimate objects brought to life in a cute and bigger than life version..then this book is for you.

As for me.. I am making myself one of these guys…
