Grandkids and Knitting

Just a quick update on grandkids and knitting!

This is Jakob, now age 18 months. Hasn't he grown from previous pics on my blog. He is just so darling!
This is Joe, now age 13, (duh, can you tell from the candles). He had a large party with friends while I was visiting on Memorial Day weekend. Joe made highest honors on his report card with an average of 97 in math. We were delighted!

And this is Nick, age 10. He just got a new trumpet as a reward for excellent grades in school. Yesterday was their last school day.

On the knitting front, I'm down to the heel of the 2nd Dr. Weissgold socks. Can't wait for those to be finished. I'm then going to return to some UFO's.

Not much time to knit lately. My new thing for June is bridge lessons. I'm challenging my brain. The lessons go till the end of August.

Oh yes, my daughter, Amy received a spinning wheel from her husband as an anniversary gift this week. He is always so thoughtful with his selection of gifts for her. Lucky girl!!!

My spinning wheel purchase keeps getting put off. I just paid $300 for new glasses and 3 weeks later I had the incident with my eye that now requires at least one new lens.

Happy Knitting!


  1. What adorable grandsons -- so handsome!

  2. How wonderful that you have such bright grandchildren! You must be very proud.

  3. Your grandsons are just gorgeous, and they all look to be very sweet, too.

  4. Great update on the grand boys. Such a great looking group of youngsters!

    What kind of spinning wheel do you currently have your heart set on?

  5. I just tripped over your blog, and love it. Handsome grand sons too - from one grand mother to another :)

  6. Thanks Joansie for visiting Raising Eden. I did get your comment. Not sure if you realized that Kaylie is a fraternal twin to our grand son Ryan - both one yr old, and we are also the lucky grand parents of two other little girls - rachel age 2 and Emily age 7mo - so we have four total. isn't being a grand mother just the absolute best!?

  7. look at all those handsome boys- I start p/t soon for the knee - before it was free not any more :(
    I bet this is going to be a small fortune. Going to the quilt show this week????

  8. Grandchildren are such a blessing, and so much fun :). Bless your heart :(, I know how not fun it is to have to buy new glasses with no insurance. I used some tax return money this last winter to buy glasses that cost 365. Can you do what I did and put the spinning wheel you want on lay-a-way and pay a little each month? Took me 4 months and I'm so glad I did that. :)

    Joansie! I just read your blog and your grandsons are adorable and smart!! I LOVE your chicks!! I've been begging for some hens for about a year now. I don't buy my eggs in the store, I buy brown eggs from a farmer friend. Well, I want my own now, but family thinks the labs would get them. Lucky you!
