Currently, I'm working on a pair of pants for Sarah using the Purple & Yellow Purewool. I have Emily's pair done and still need to make William's pair. I'll have to get a picture of them to add!
I would also like to make a scarf for Dan using the Caron Simply Soft yarn in stipes of blue and white.
The yarn at the bottom of my yarn stash tub is for socks for me (and maybe the kids since I got 2 skeins of each color). I haven't ever made socks before and am going to try toe-up socks two at a time!

This shows all of them.
This is a row counter for a 4 row repeat. On the first time though a repeated pattern, you put the knitting needle in the 1st ring. On the 2nd time, the 2nd ring goes on the needle. And so on....
This one cost ~$1.75
These are just to mark a certain place in the knitting (ie. center front, etc.)
These were ~50¢ each
This one has a lobster claw instead of a ring as it is for marking a stationary point in a knitted project (such as the beginning of the legs) or for crocheting where you have to put the marker on the work itself.
This one was ~75¢.

This is the Gentlemen and Blauer Reiter colors of Purewool rolled up into balls.
Here are the longies I knit for William using the Blauer Reiter color.
Here is William modeling them.
I made them with the Tinybirds Organic "in the round" pattern. I made the rise and legs shorter than her newborn pattern and I think they fit pretty well!
Waiting for a turn to go down the hill.
Dan & Emily on the way down.
Sarah and I going down.
Dan & Sarah coming back up the hill.
Emily was just as excited (or maybe more) about the airplane flying over.

Here I am with the snowflake necklace from Dan.
We went to my sister Rachel's house for the extended family Christmas. William was too hot, so he lounged in his diaper.
Sarah is making her own "brother" snowman.
William really enjoyed making snowmen! I was going to wait for him to be napping before we went out so I could leave him inside, but he didn't want to nap-until we got outside!
Emily is pointing to the "Emily" snowman.
Emily is patting the "William" snowman (who is lying down since William, the person, can't sit or stand!)
