WIP Wednesday!!

A Work In Progress Wednesday! It's been a long time since I've posted!! Here is what I am currently working on.....

I recently finished these socks. I love making kids socks they go so fast! These are for my almost 6yo. Actually, they are dirty, he wore them today with his rain boots! His favorite color is green and he picked out the yarn for both these projects.

This is a hoodie sweater for Kylan with a Roo pocket (is that what it's called?) It is knit in the round which is my favorite. I can't even tell you how many times I have redone this project. I am not a perfectionist, but I'm trying hard to not just leave mistakes because I'm impatient and want to finish as fast a possible!! Kylans 6th birthday is coming up and he somehow is under the impression I am making him a quilt for his birthday, so I really need to finish this and start the quilt!!! What are you working on?

Our Solstice (better late than never)

I am still finding traditions for our family and every year we do a little more. Here are just a few pictures from our Winter Solstice.
In the morning the boys woke up to find gifts the Solstice faeries left. Here's Evie hugging his new doll:)

We made some treats for our hungry birds and squirrels. We simple smeared peanut butter on pine cones and rolled them in bird seeds. We also scattered seeds around our yard.

We also went to a Solstice potluck that evening and brought dinner rolls...shaped like stars:) Pared great with the pumpkin curry soup a friend made! We played, lit a bonfire, and read poetry at the party! We also burned notes in the fire of the things we want to let go of or leave behind.

The kids eagerly watched as the birds quickly discovered their Solstice treats!

*Welcome Winter*
