What’s New With You?

Not much is new here. The camera did show up, but The Girl had crushed it in her backpack. So the screen is broken, so you can take pictures, but you cannot see what they are before you download them. This is not that big of deal, but you cannot adjust any of the settings on the camera since they all show up on the screen. 
However, I do have a photo to show. I knit this tam for a co-workers friend. I think it turned out quite nice.

I have knit several hats in the last month and now I am starting on X-mas presents. I am currently knitting some fingerless gloves for my FIL. He has never actually shown any interest in fingerless gloves; in fact, I don’t think I have ever seen him wear gloves at all. But he does a lot of stuff for the church (outside) and I thought it would be nice for him to have something that he could use his fingers and still keep his hands warm. We will see how it goes.

My MIL wants another pair of bed socks, so I will make those next. They are easy since they are made with bigger yarn.

The Hub and I have been looking at beds. It is one of those things that really suck to shop for because all the salespeople are extra clingy. It is not like I am going to carry the damn mattress out of the store in my pocket. Go away and let me lie on them and see which ones I like for Pete’s sake! Sheesh… Anyway, we were going to upgrade to a queen bed, but we would have to buy a new frame and quite honestly, the thought of paying $75 for something to just set the bed on was more than I could bear. So we are going with another full bed. We found one we liked and it will be delivered on Friday. It will be so nice to sleep on something that does not make springy noise and is soft.
I will let you know how it goes.

Other than that, not much going on here. I have been working. The Girl has been sick. The Baby can count to 10 and knows what noises several animals (including a monkey and a javelina) make. She is very smart! She is going to be a monkey for Halloween. I promise to post a picture of her here.
