Oh Balls

We all know sit and knit can get a little crazy....rarely do we get by without talking about some male body part at least once.... 

Well this week was no different! 

Laura said we could knit these ball sacks for Fathers Day and call them "knotty knitter nut huggers." Lol!!!!!
Is she Really knitting a ball sac?! No!! (Our mind is just usually in the gutter....;)

But she is making this darling elephant!! Want the pattern? Come in the shop and buy your cute pattern

Hope you are good.

Back on the Grid

Hi My Friend!  It's been forever it seems....

We have been riding the crazy train for sure.  Clint's chemo doctor said the cancer is growing despite the chemo trial and he was no longer eligible to take the drug.  As well as telling us he has approximately 6-12 months left to live. 

 When we saw his regular doctor a week later I asked why would the chemo work the first two months and not the last two months.  He then said that the cancer is smart - similar to a virus with an anti-biotic, and became resistant to the drug.  He said there's a couple other chemo pills that could do similar things but when they became resistant we would switch to the next one, thus hopefully giving him more months to live...

Depressed, defeated, and hopeless we have worked our way back to being in an okay place. (maybe it has something to do with my brother and sister in law taking us on a spur of the moment surprise trip to Kauai Hawaii....;)

We surfed (I broke 2 toes- but I'm ok), zip lined, hiked, jumped into natural springs, kayaked, and ate a TON of amazingly delicious stuff.  It was such an amazing gift and we will cherish those memories in our hearts forever.

He has tests again today and results Wednesday.   But we are committed to living one day at a time and making each day we have together be filled with as much joy, fun, and memories as possible.  We received a really neat letter in the mail and you can read about it on Clint's blog.  If you are on Facebook I have posted a lot more details of the past whirl wind if you are interested and you can read it on his Facebook page

On to a MUCH LIGHTER note!  I'm super excited for our Knit Sew Create coming up

Have you wanted to perfect or learn how to do

  • I-cord cast on
  • I-cord
  • half- linen stitch
  • increases
  • decreases
  • buttonhole

Then don't miss this fun technique class!  I just received the picture and I love it! I think done in a solid too would be great...... maybe a chocolate or turquoise!

I've started working on the Chevron Bag and let me just say....


 Here's the bottom of my bag as I was knitting along

 I'm making it out of the AMAZING and luscious Kenzie yarn

I hope you can come to the event it will be FUN!  I hope you have a fun week and I will talk to you soon.
