Here's MoMo!

Ok this is what I worked on this weekend!
He doesn't have his legs on yet, but they are done and waiting! The pattern states that the finished size is 6"x9" yet my MoMo is WAY bigger! More like 9"x12" without his legs! I used the same yarn the pattern called for and the same hook size and my stitches are pretty tight, so I don't know what happened! My boys think that he's a great ball to throw around the house though!!! I am giving it to my niece for her Birthday, so I hope she likes it!!! This is MoMo compared to a sharpie and his legs, scattered around on my desk!

I'm working on attaching them now! I'll put up pictures of him finished, hopefully tomorrow!

I'm back!

Ok my vacations are over for now and I'm back! I finished Andrew's orange blanket while in Yosemite (by lantern light mind you!) and got requests for more! Brandon now wants his blue and black but he said it's okay to use the white squares that I already started as well. Nice of him! Anyway I'm currently working on Brandon's blue & black blanket as well as this guy for my niece! He's really big and I started him in a lovely turquoise yarn that I had leftover but I will not have enough so I have to redo it now! Her birthday's next week so I have time I hope! My oldest turns 17 on Monday and we're having a party tonight. I can't believe that he's 17! Andrew LOVED his blanket by the way! Here's a picture of me in the cabin working on it, not a very good picture and I'm scratching mosquito bites since I was the feast du jour in Yosemite!!!

Here's a much nicer picture to look at:

Halfdome in the morning!

That's it for me, I will post a picture of MoMo when I'm done with him!

Off again!

Well Vegas was GREAT!! I haven't been there since 1994 and man has it changed! We had a blast though! I crocheted the whole trip there and got Brandon's 1st square done on his new black and white blanket! got a couple of white middle squares done as well. Andrew's orange monster is almost completed. I had hopes to get it done before leaving for Yosemite but I don't know about that! Christopher went to Mexico with my brother in law and kids and came back last night and is sitting in Palmdale waiting to go to Yosemite! I asked if he wanted to ride up with me and so I will be picking him up, probably tonight, and we will leaving tomorrow afternoon for Santa Rosa to get everyone else and head to Yosemite Saturday morning! Can't wait! I do have yarn ready for that trip as well but being as it's Yosemite and I enjoy the sites so much there I don't know how much I'll actually get done on Brandon's squares!
We leave Yosemite on Wednesday and all 4 kids come back with me!! My house will be a busslin' again!!
I leave you with some pictures of Vegas!
Starting our trip!

A day spent walking!
My daughter bear that went we us!
