Updated Pics of the Kittens

Here are some updated pics of the new babies. They are now 4 weeks old, and still looking for a home. Trying food this week so that they can start eating on their own. They don't really want anything to do with the eating on their own but they are wandering all over and playing.

New Babies

Here are our new additions. There are 3 total, the black one, a gray tiger, and a calico. They are only 2 days old, but will need homes in about 8 weeks. I took in a stray in January and now here in April we have kittens. We are keeping the mommy kitty but she is definately taking a visit to the local vet.

This is an Oddball Baby Blanket that I was part of also part of knittinghelp.com charity knitting. The top brighter green section is mine. These blankets are passed around to 6 knitters to knit a 4 inch section and then are donated to the Bridgeport Children's Hospital in Conneticut. I have worked on several of these blankets, with more to come. You can find more of these blankets at www.northeastoddball.blogspot.com,

Oddball Care Shawl- Pink Passion

This is part of an Oddball Care Shawl that I knit a 4 inch piece on. This shawl will go around to various knitters that are part of knittinghelp.com. and is then given to someone in the group that may be going thru a rough time or just needs a pick me up. This one is called Pink Passion and should all be knit in different shades of pink. I will receive this a second time to knit another section in the same shade that I knit with on this section. When it returns to me I will be sure to post another picture to show the progress. You can see other shawls at oddballshawls.blogspot.com

My New Socks

I made this pair of socks for myself. And surprise, surprise I actually like them and for once keep something for myself. I think I will run a small string of elastic thru the top to give them a little more support in the ribbing but other than that I love them. I made them with tofutsie sock yarn that my husband bought for me on our honeymoon.

Made this little set for my niece's new addition. The hat was my own idea, it's just a K2, P2 rib pattern all the way to the top, the sock pattern was in one of the books that I have that I can't rememer and the little fingerless mitts came from a pattern found on Ravelry called Thumb suckers. I made this set from some Moda Dea sock yarn I had in my stash.

The beautiful teapot

My sister is an artist. I'm not sure if she knows this, but she is. This is an old teapot that she had laying around, that she handpainted the scenery on and then filled with flowers.

Some more pictures taken by my son. Keeps reinforcing the idea that he needs a nice digital camera.

Proof that Spring is on the Way

This is proof that spring is on the way, finally. These photos were taken by my son with his cell phone. Got me thinking that if he can take these types of photos with a phone maybe a camera for his birthday is a good idea. He would at least enjoy it and I could get some nice photos to share and frame for the house. As we finish the basement off into rooms they will need photos on the walls. Hope you enjoy the scenery these photos provide.
