2 quick caps....

The two youngest grandsons are here for a few days. Friday we went to Hobby Lobby -- each with a discount coupon in hand -- the boys each picked out a skein of yarn for a new hat -- so that night I quick crocheted them their hats -- good thing too, as when we went to leave for a flea market early Saturday morning it was really "cold" and they both donned their new hats. This pic is of them at 7 AM Saturday, still in pj's -- trying on the hats.

Ah, peace at last....

Well. the new roof is on -- just a bit of trim and clean up and then that will be finished. We had a very heavy rain yesterday and all was dry. Whew -- what a relief.
Below a portion of the back of the house with tons of vents.
I also finished up the third pair (cranberry red ones) of crocheted sock/slippers. Started a tweedy blue pair too. Then it will be on to something elseBelow is a picture of how they look on. As I mentioned, they are very comfy :-

Noisy next few days...........

Today begins the re-roofing process. First all the old has to come off (see photo). It is very noisy in the house with 5 men and tools up on the roof. Then there will be the hammering when the new roof gets put on. Oh, my poor head LOL.

Another new project....

Ever know anyone who flits between projects like I do?????
I guess I want to try it all and feel I have to hurry to get even a small part of what I'd like to try done -- there are soooo many things and the time goes by so fast.
OK, I know the heat index the last couple has been at or near 100 degrees --so what am I doing making socks/slippers????? Who knows? It is just something I felt like doing. Here is a photo of what I have done the last couple days. Two pair finished and a good start on the first sock in cranberry red tweed. They are going to be so snugly warm on cold winter days.
