he's so lucky least that's what i tell!

so, my dh has this awesome pair of slippers that  someone made for him years ago....but as you can see, they have seen better days, MUCH better days....

 being such a good wife and all,
i decided it was time for me to put my mad knitting skills to the test...
i scarffed up some manly colored yarn from gramma harv's stash.
now, figured i'd do this little project on the sly...maybe i'd even get them done in time for a Christmas gift
only i made one  fatal mistake....
yeah, i told my kids. duh. what was i thinking? honestly.sometimes i amaze myself. that the secret is out, why not share it with the world, huh?

here's a little peek.

Picked by Faeriedtreasures


...i know you all wonder where i've been, and miss me dreadfully, ha ha!
well, i've been pretty busy with the usual things a mother of six gets busy know
vacuuming 3-4 times a day, so my human vacuum cleaner doesn't get to the crumbs before i do
picking more zucchini than anyone in the whole world knows what to with (if you are ever in a pinch and think you might starve, plant zucchini.)
chasing the two yr old away from the fridge (right now she is walking around with a block of cheese, apparently her forehead hurts and this is her "ice bag"

butchering rabbits? how in the world did i get myself into this? (ok, so i didn't actually do the butchering, but i watched...that counts, right?)rabbit speedies anyone?
started school on wednesday...grades 3,2,1 and pre-school. now this..this is amazing!..
so, enough about my life...what about gramma harv? what's she been up to?
64 of those babies...ALL DONE!
now, on to her next project...
