I haven’t deserted the blog

Wow, i am sorry.  I never meant to disappear for so long.  So I thought that with Little Man at school i would have plenty of time to write a few posts during the week. Wrong.  I applied for a job to be a lunch lady and was hired!  I am actually a substitute lunch lady but  I have been lucky enough to be called in everyday. I sub for all the schools in my city and I have even been at Little Man’s school for a few days.  That was fun for us both 🙂

It’s getting quite chilly here and I have been getting cozy in the evening and knitting.

After the shawl i made for myself, Little Man asked me to make him one. Of course I said Yes.

Pattern: Little Man’s Shawl

Needles: US 10

Yarn: Red and Blue are Vanna’s Choice.  Black is Caron Simply Soft

Notes: I improvised this myself. It’s just plain garter stitch.

I used the cast on from the Kiri Shawl, yarn over increases on the left and right and I used the same center increases that my turquoise shawl used.  So it’s kind of a modge podge of different patterns I have done.

I added the button since I knew that the shawl would just keep falling off, little boys are not the best at sitting still 😉

He was really excited when it was done and has worn it a few times. It’s nice and cozy and soft and has already been through a washing after chocolate ice cream got on it.

I have been working on hubby’s socks.  I have no more excuses not to work on them now that cooler weather is upon us.

I also started some new socks for Socktober.  It a Mystery Sock from the Through the Loops blog.

I have a baby hat in the works and so close to being done!   So you can expect to see that SOON!  No more disappearances from me.

Hope you all are doing well!

  1. What does the lunch lady do? I don’t have much contact with schools these days so I’m not sure, do you prepare lunches or maybe serve it to kids?
    The shawl is a great idea for the chilli days, I’m working on one myself because we suddenly have a cold rainy windy Autumn here…

  2. Congratulations on a new job! It’s so nice that you get to go to Little Man’s school too. (Is he loving school?)
    Little Man’s shawl is wonderful. I bet he loves to snuggle with it.
    Your sock is coming along nicely. The colors are so pretty.
