More Bits and Bobs.......................


Two new little ones have joined our flock.  Sophie and Sarah the sisters, have suddenly adopted two new little sheep, I believe they came from Target, but how they jumped in my cart and made it home with me I have no idea. 


What is it with the sheep in my house always trying to get into trouble?  I think Sophie and Sarah are going to have their hands full with these two little ones.


Speaking of trouble..........  keep your eyes on this little guy and see what he does!  He looks pretty innocent doesn't he?  Just keep your eyes on this space,.....................


My dear friend Teresa has started making the wonderful Hitchhiker Scarf by Martina Behm and wanted to know if any of us wanted to join her.  I have to say I tried to resist but I couldn't.  All that gray yarn and ribbing of the Flaum sweater was making my already hurting head hurt more.  I think I needed to start something new and a bit easier.  The Flaum just doesn't seem to grow no matter how much I knit on it.  I am using stash yarn from who knows where for this scarf.  It must have been on sale because it is sock yarn and I do not knit socks.  The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Co. Happy Feet DK in superwash wool and I am using size 7 needles.  I hope the yarn gets softer with a good soaking because it is a tad scratchy.


Look at the innocence on that face, he looks like he is just trying to hold himself up at the door while I was outside taking photos of my new project.  But when I tried to get back in the house I was locked out!  A new skill I wish he hadn't figured out, while there are so many I wish he would figure out like potty training!  I walked back to the front of the house in the rain and came inside to give chase to a little one who was laughing and running away from me.






Can you trust this little monster?  I think not!

Ah yes, locking grown-ups out is a classic isn't it, never gets old. You'll have to watch out every time you go out now. The sheep are adorable, stuff is always jumping into my basket without me knowing as well. Love the hitchhiker. I'm trying to avoid looking in my stash to see if I have suitable yarn. Teresa says it's tricky at the start, so it may be too much for me. But I am thinking scarves now, when I should really be thinking blanket and finishing it off. I hope you have a good week Meredith and that things are easing a little for you. CJ xx

The look on his face is priceless - part angel and part little imp. So cute. Hope you and your sweet family have a great Thanksgiving.

What would we do without our little ones? I was locked out by my toddler years ago. By banging on the patio door, she vibrated the latch enough to jiggle itself into place. Unlike you, I couldn't get in...no keys and a locked front door. I called the neighborhood security and four trucks swarmed to my house. Must have been a slow day... One finally fetched a ladder from their office and climbed into the second story bathroom window. Whew... What fun, though, that your little guy has such a sense of humor and mischief.

SoOOOO cute. That boy! Lil Buddy. The best.
Troy always laughed on fire calls where the mom was locked out of the house by the toddler. Once the toddler was SCREAMING because mom was locked out and there were groceries in the car. When the firemen got the dooropen, the child was yelling JUICE BOX! ! THats what he wanted the wholetime, not his mom!

Teresa Kasner said...

Wow, your flock is growing! Love those technicolor lambies! I'm so excited you're joining in our KAL! Yours is in a gorgeous color! You're so fast! Oh that cute little scamp of yours! You'll have to hide a key outside. Love how much fun his grin looks. Sounds like you're having a nice weekend, my friend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Dee said...

Oh my gosh ......he is changing SO MUCH. He doesn't look like a baby anymore. He's growing up too fast and obviously has a very keen sense of humor! LOL

The new little sheep are adorable!

Teresa Hennes said...

Love the sheep! Little Buddy was a sassy boy! :) (as I sit here laughing). I can just see the joy on his face. Luckily the front door was open. That scarf is going to be beautiful! I love the richness of the red.

Wendy's Mhaaksels said...

Haha naughty boy lol, so cute to see the fun on his face ;)
Lovely sheep by the way.

Willow said...

Hahaha! Now life will never be the same. You will need to carry a key with you all.the.time.
I love those little sheep. So cute. And so naughty :)
Hmmmm, I love the look of that shawl. I'm off to check it out.

Stins said...

Big hugs from Mirjam.

Hahaha! :-) Have fun with the hitchhiker. All the best, Regula

That little man of yours is a delight, you could forgive him anything with that impish grin. Things suddenly appear in my shopping trolley too...I need to work out how that happens? Love the colour of the yarn you are using for the scarf.

Janet said...

The colour of the Hitchhiker Scarf is lovely. Little Buddy - so adorable - he makes my day. I love to hear how he's getting on. You are a wonderful Mum, Meredith. Have a lovely week.

What a lovely loving "wild" life and chase you have dear Meredith! That little guy is so cute and a true little mischief boy! Love seeing his many faces and smiles. Sheepies everywhere, lots of mischief at your house! Love the beginnings of the scarf and the color is beautiful. I know out of your comfort zone BUT gorgeous!
xoxoRobin
Also love LB's ornate "wheels"

Claudia said...

Oh, that boy! He's a little devil and an adorable one at that! I miss him so much!

linda said...

Haha you can just see the mischief on his face it's a good job that you were able to get back inside Meredith. The scarf is looking lovely, I just love that colour. :) xx

Annie said...

Ha! I've been locked out by that brand of monster, too. So irritating (or terrifying, depending) at the time, but it makes a hilarious story later!

That's funny you mention the Hitchhiker. I started one back in...maybe May or so. I'm just at just about half of the repeats, but since the rows get longer and longer, I keep stalling. It's something I pick up now and then, throw a few rows on, then forget again for a while. One of these days, I need to just sit down and DO it. It is pretty, one of those clever-in-its-simplicity designs. And I'm checking out Teresa's blog, too.

Susanne said...

Sounds like your little guy is giving you a run for the money. They do learn quickly but it is up to us to out smart them, keeping one step ahead isn't always easy. He is a bundle of energy, just like my grandson. Love the little sheep.

Toni said...

LOL! He's almost too adorable for his own good.

Gracie Saylor said...

The way the little ones around us rearrange our lives is endlessly interesting...or so I find at least. This morning I have a wooden sheep laying down on a keyboard and other fluffy sheep have gone missing from their shelf pasture. The girls came to "watch" the Seahawks beat the SF49ers with me yesterday afternoon :) while I finished knitting a pumpkin I started last Fall! Your Hitchhiker looks pretty...even if a bit scratchy at the moment. Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving xxxxx

elns said...

I love the two profile photos of LB running away from you. He's so cute. He's definitely running away from you in mischief.

I did a Hitchhiker a while back and really enjoyed it. That colorway you've chosen is so rich and vibrant it is perfect for this time of year. I hope it softens for you too.

Becky L. said...

your scarf is gonna be lovely. Glad your front door was unlocked. Maybe ya need to keep keys on you at all times! Sneaky little buddy boy of yours! Enjoy! Right now my project is printing fotos for my calendars, which I'm behind on..just like last year and the year before. Who knows when I'll get the slippers done. Sigh!
Hugs!

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

I remember when my kidlets figured that one out, little stinkers! What adorable photos you captured of your wee monster! And what is with those sheep??? Adorable.

Delia West said...

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

hahahahahahaha! He's one smart cookie. My kids used to do the same to me here on the balcony. Love the color of the yarn you are using. Major keyboard issues here. Takers forever to comment with lots of editing. Hugs,

Gillian said...
