wow I have been totally slacking with my blogging but I am so behind in everything these days, I have about 7 knitting projects on the go and not just ones for fun but ones that have to get done ugh add on to that work, child and everything else and it doesn't leave much room for anything. Plus I have about a million things running through my brain right now so sleep hasn't been on the agenda much either hmmmmm perhaps I should make my evening snack tequila shooters and that would probably help me pass out sleep lol.

My wise friend

So I am dedicating this blog to my blog wise friend Laura aka Org Junkie. She is amazing and she has been so helpful to me in getting my new blog all set up and best of all she has been so patient with my endless emails and phone calls that generally start like I just have 1 quick question and then usually a cup of vanilla tea and lots of laughs later my question is answered lol. Thank you thank you thank you Laura I truly appreciate your help and hope that one day I rock at blogging like you.

Mounty toque

One of the ladies that I work with her daughter's husband is a member with the RCMP and she is expecting a baby and wanted a hat in the colors of the red surge so we tossed around a few ideas and this is what I came up with.....I think I have found the perfect colors to match so we have the brown for the boots and hat, blue for the pants and red for the cute.
