My Baby...

Hey y'all!
Today my baby turned 13.
So to my baby...

Age 8

Age 13
My how my baby has grown!

His best friend Abby and her mom threw him a surprise party today.
I actually got him there without him figuring it out.
He was indeed surprised and absolutely thrilled!

And in knitting news,
I just finished a dishcloth and I thought the pattern turned out really pretty so I wanted to share the link with you and show you the one I worked up today.
You can find this free pattern by Kimara of Wee Folk Art
I am working on using up my cotton stash, so I used the same yarn for this cloth that I did with the Monthly Dishcloth KAL

I'm gonna pair 'em up and give them to my landlord's wife as a birthday gift. Her birthday is today too, but they are celebrating it tomorrow.

That's enough rambling for me tonight.
I hope y'all have a great weekend!

Hugs, health & happiness,

How cool is that!!! Happy birthday to your little one and Happy 'given birth' day to you too.... (we mom's deserve a little celebration too!)

Patt said...

Wow your son is really handsome. hope he had a great bd.
And the hat you made is super cute!!

Miss Julep said...

What a handsome young man! The time flies! Oh & I LOVE your featured dishcloth!

Kaine said...

Ut oh! A teenager!
Happy Birthday, Damon!

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Patt---> Thanks friend! He did have an awesome bd. The hat was so easy! Once I did the stitch pattern a time or two I didn't even have to look at the pattern again until I started the decreases.

Miss Julep---> Thank you! I am very fortunate. He's not just handsome, he's a really good kiddo too. The dishcloth was another super-easy pattern that you didn't have to keep looking at the pattern. It was a really good take-along pattern that I could do anywhere.

Kaine---> Lol...I hear ya! Now I have TWO teenage boys in the house! My oldest, Jeremy is 14.

Y'all are great! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me.
Big hugs to you all...

Heya girl. You really are busy knitting away, aren't you?

Soooo, peeps here love dishcloths and potholders and such.

And you know I love your effelant & have that turtle butt pattern I'm wanting done.

And I'm spending money freaking left and right to get this art thang going - you might as well get some of it!

Could I commission some stuff? Get ya rollin' on selling your stuff? We could go through Etsy so you have some sales started there?

Whatcha think?

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Hey Sara! I sure have been missing you my friend! Yeah, I always have one project or another going. I am working on a pair of socks now, lol.

I would love to knit some stuff up for you! I have an Etsy account, but not a store. should help me come up with a name!

I'm so excited!
Great big hugs,

Mary Anne said...

I am very late with this, but Happy Birthday to your son!

A Knittin' Junkie! said...

Thanks Mary Anne! I worked up a set of the Feather and Fan & Basket Rib Cloths like you make. I'll get pics posted soon.

Have a great day my friend!
Great big hugs,
