I saw this lamb as a finished project while browsing on Ravelry and just had to make it. I think he is extremely cute and I had the perfect yarn to make him cuddly and fuzzy.
Yarn: Moda Dea Dream Solid
Hook Size: 4.0mm (G)
Designer: Tamie Snow
Book: Tiny Yarn Animals: Amigurumi Friends to Make and Enjoy
Okay, so long time no talk. Our home computer crashed and we’ve been unable to replace it. But thanks to an amazing guy who is a computer genius, we have it back. Although at the moment, ironically, I’m typing this from the office on my lunch. Go figure
So, this is as brief of a synopsis I can possibly give you.
#1 My son is now 3! I can’t believe it. His birthday was in May and we had an awsome BBQ party with the most important thing a child of 3 can have. A bouncy house! Jack is quite the goober lately and we are having so much fun. He has such a personality and is ornery as all get-out.

#2 My nephew Connor is now 1. His birthday was also in May and my sister did an amazing job of making him the (second) sweetest boy ever.

#3 My niece was born! Miss Lily Grace met the world June 19th and she is a peach.

#4 One of my very best friends Alicia (who moved to Chile last summer) came to the states for a month long visit and we had a great time. I’ve missed here sooo much. Our boys are only a year apart and we had the opportunity to get them together.

#5 I have (finally) learned to crochet pretty successfully and have successfully completed a few projects. For now you only get one picture.

#6 I went to the Ozzy concert this Spring with box seats at the Pepsi Center and of course, it was AMAZING! Rock on Ozzy, freaking rock on!

#7 Laura and I attended the Estes Park Wool Market again this summer and again enjoyed it immensely.

#8 I have become quite the baker. Blueberry Pie from Needled To Death by Maggie Sefton.
#9 One of our babies went to a new home. Tonks was never quite happy after our son was born but we found a perfect situation with a really sweet girlfriend.
#10 I’m still a knitting fiend and have completely so many projects that it’s hard to pick just one for this post, but here it is.

#11 Out of order I know, but Jasmine and I threw an AWESOME baby shower for Miss Jenny (see #3). Planning it took up most of my Spring but it was completely worth it!

#12 Nick is great and thoroughly enjoying that Jack is old enough to fish and play ball. He has a new job and seems to be very happy!

Okay. Phew! I think that’s most of the major events. I’ll continue to add as I think of them. I also promise to post all of my projects from the last year but bit by bit seeing as I have a ton. And hopefully I’ll be posting much more regularly.
