Since every spare minute I have has been used up making these hats, not a lot else has gone on here. Little Buddy likes putting the hat on but informed me his favorite color is red not pink.
Two have already been delivered and three more have been made. I think I can get one more finished before I take my SIL's to the bus in Tampa on Friday. They are riding all night so they can participate in the Women's March on Washington, on Saturday. They are marching for women's rights as well as the rights of every single person in this country. I so wish I could go! There are Sister Marches all over the world. Look at this site to is amazing to see the participation out there.
I have been watching the Gilmore Girls on Netflix while I knit row after row. It is a great show that I am late to the party for. I swear I am late for everything! A perfect show to watch as I try to knit my heart out. I want to live in Stars Hollow and of course I have a crush on Luke. I am still on season 1, and am loving every minute of this show.
Another great Netflix show, The Crown. If you haven't watched it you should. It is superbly acted, absolutely stunning, the costumes are incredible, and oh my the music is so stirring. I can't wait for the next season to be released. It is by far one of the best productions I have ever seen.
Here was my Christmas present from my friend Holly. She bought this not knowing at the time the person she bought it from had made it. It is actually made by a friend of mine who used to own a yarn store near me. She lost her daughter in a tragic car accident some years ago. The proceeds from these little monsters go to the foundation she set up in honor of her daughter. Her daughter Jen, was an artist who taught art in elementary school. If you want a monster you can find out more here.
I have been trying to weed thorough some of the things in my home as I have stated before. I ran across an article stating you should remove, recycle or donate 27 things from your space for 9 days in a row, to clear out the old so the new can flow in. I can happily say I have completed day 8, one more day to go tomorrow. If you miss a day you have to start all over again! I have been through drawers and cupboards, closets and under beds, yet there is still so much here! I just might keep going a few more days as there seems to be no difference here at all. Out with the old stuff and in with the new. Well in with positive things, nothing negative I hope.
I have also been gluten free for two weeks to see if it helps my headaches. It is not as hard as I thought it would be but can I just say that my rice flour, agave sweetened gluten free blueberry muffins are not near as yummy as my agave sweetened chocolate chip muffins. I am starting to bring gluten back in a little at a time starting tomorrow, wish me luck because I feel like I have been hungry for two weeks.
Just to make you laugh, not the greatest selfie, but you get the idea. Little One and I had to try on the hats together. Soon they will be on their way to marchers in Washington D. C. I am in awe of all the women, men and children out there who are marching for all of us, for equality in all forms. I wish them all a great day.
