Pattern Winners!

Alright everyone, here are our winners!  I'm sorry that the blog was giving everyone some trouble, and not letting some of you post comments....I'll have to get some kinks worked out before we give it another shot.  Anyways, I really enjoyed hearing a bit about all of you, and I'm so happy to have you knitting up my patterns!  Thank you so much!

The winners of their choice of one free pattern are: Dawana Cemer, Rachel Mitchell (These two had to enter through Facebook because their comments weren't showing up), and Brenda - the one with three grandkids who she loves, loves, loves to knit for (there were two)!  Please e-mail me at to claim your patterns, ladies.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog, and make sure you continue to pop your head in every once in a while as I'll be doing some games, freebies, and other fun stuff that I may or may not be announcing on Facebook :)

Stay-At-Home-Mom Celebration!

Sorry that I haven't updated the blog in a little has been a bit wild around here lately.  This is a little run down of what my family is up to:

- My husband is 4 months into his new job as a police officer and is working graveyards.
- We have a 6-month old baby (we all know how time consuming that can be!).
- I'm working on this business like mad.
- We are in the middle of building a new house (we are building it ourselves too - my father-in-law is amazing, and he and a family friend are doing almost all the work themselves, with my husband helping whenever he can).

(Had to slip this in here, lol)

So, needless to say, I've been having trouble keeping up with myself!!  I sure appreciate all of you patiently awaiting the next pattern, and always being so wonderfully supportive when I am able to get new ones out.

My last blog was about how my husband and I had been going around about me quitting my job....and....I finally get to!!! Yay!  Tomorrow is my last day at work, and I will be stay-at-home full time!  Charlie and I will hang out during the day, and I'll be ferociously knitting away at night (I'll find time to sleep in there somewhere, ha ha).

In celebration of all the wonderful things going on in my life, but mostly of being able to stay home full-time, I'd like to do a little give away!!  I also think it will be a nice bribe to get people to come visit my blog and comment letting me know just a little bit about them....I'd really love to know a bit more about the people I spend so much of my day with :)

So, there will be three winners, and each will win a pattern of their choice!  In order to enter, follow my blog, share my Facebook page on your Facebook wall, business page, blogs, etc. and comment below letting me know a bit about yourself - something like your name, whether you mainly knit or crochet, and then something fun!  I will randomly select the three winners out of those who participate Friday evening.

I can't wait to meet all of you!!  Fun, fun, fun!
