I thought I had more time

Summer time means more time at home right? Why can't I find the time to update here once in a while? I guess a soon to be 6 month old keeps me busy. Little G is doing great and will be 6 months on Monday. Crazy how time flies. I have so much to show you too! There has been knitting!

Made these Noro socks a little while back but just didn't get the picture off the camera!

Made this water bottle cozy real fast for a swap last month. Love the leaf design too!

Sewed the toes on these this morning. Started them on a car trip, but it took a while to really get the second one done this month.

I even have some Christmas knitting done! This is that cute little lionbrand cardi with the eylets on the top. Can't really tell from the picture, but it came out super cuter with this bargan Vanna yarn I found. MAking a similar one for my other niece too. They both love purple!

Great swap package over on Ravelry that I was a part of. Don't you just love that shawlette?

Even a little blue cable bib for little G:

That's about all from here. I am caught up on my knitting pics and even slipped one of little G in there for you! He is almost sitting up by himself and can rolls both ways now. We might be ready for him to be mobile!

Happy 4th!

Sorry I have been MIA for a bit. Heading back to work left me with no real "free time" for the computer. Little G doesn't like being where the computer is, so I canonly get here when he is sleeping (and I have been sleeping when he does) or if huby has him. But I haven't been able to stay on for too long.

Have been knitting too... when I can...

Made this cute little mock cable hat for G last month before I had to return the book to the library.

Made him a few bibs for those droolly occasions.

And lastly husband's birhtday socks:

Just a lot of leftovers in his favorite colors.

I have a sweater for my niece on the needles as well as a pair of socks for me too. I am out of school for the summer, so I am going to enjoy every minute I have! Mom, G, and Me took a road trip last week to VA. to visit my sister and her family. G did great in the car. We broke the trip in half each way with a stop in PA. for the night each direction. We had a lot of fun. Boy is it hot in VA. Not sure I could do that for long. Of course we are starting our own heat weave today. Hope we survive the humidity!

Tomorrow I am getting back on the exersice wagon. Since I started back to work I haven't even been able to do much walking with G in the carriage. SO I hope to get him outside during the mornings while it is cooler. Plus I am taking an ourdoor bootcamp class for the month of July! I hope I survive that too! Just realy needed a jumpstart to my routine. I like to workout at home, but I figured this would get me out doing something by myself while hubby watching little G or drops him off at one of the grandmother's for the morning.

Glad to get a chance to check in. Will post a new pic of G soon as he just turned 5 months on Friday! Where does the time go?
