Help!!!!!!! Need knitting pattern

Hello everyone,
Just thought I would ask the blogging world out there if there is anyone who has been knitting socks and who might have a easy pattern for a new baby at this. I want to knitt socks but I need a easy pattern. Plus I have been talking to my Susie and she as suggested that I try knitting things for my kids. Does anyone have any suggestions on kids knitting books (that would be easy for me). Now for other knitting news.
I am done with the two ICords for the Sophie Bag and now I am going to finish this one up, so that I can call Susie and have her help me with the Button Hole bag. She is so wonderful to be go graceful about my many HELP phone calls. I will be publishing pictures of these bags in a couple of days. I have a sick friend and God has lead me to make her my Mother-in-Law Anne's chicken soup. I have not made this in a long time but let me tell you it sure is good. I have two packages to get out, one is for my Secret Pal and the other is for my needle exchange pal but why does it take me so long to get the box together I ask (maybe my two young kids needing their mommy). Oh well I will be getting this out this week.
I am in need of prayer for my husband Robin, he is stepping out in faith and listening to God and he needs everyone's prayer right now. So if you feel lead to pray for him I would be so blessed and I know he would also.
Susie, just to let you know I am bidding on the spinnning stuff right now. I am so glad that you sent me that link. I can't wait to see if I win and then I am going to learn how to spin. And yes I am going to take your suggestion and find a class or some help here. You rock sis.

Help Crying Baby

I am having one of those nights. My almost three year old is not going to bed tonight and is just crying my name out. I have the hardest time with not going in there to lay down with him and just fall asleep in my arms, but my dh is saying NO. I think he is finally done. YES,YEA. I went to Jacksonville this weekend without my kids, my wonderful husband stayed at home with them so that I could visit with my Uncle that I have not seen in 21 years. I had a great time, even though it was like sitting there with my dad who past away 1 year ago in July. I had a great time though getting to be with Valeria again, we are hoping to take off next summer to Ohio with our kids and visit with our old friends and family. I am looking forward to being with my best friend Regina and seeing my sister Shari and my aunt again. I have not seen them since October. I will be posting pictures of my trip soon. Here is my dh with dinner. see ya later.

Where is the Knitting???May I ask.

I have not really been able to sit down and knit. I am a stay at home mom who is now working out of her home. I am doing all the office stuff now for Suncoast Precast, like payroll, telephone, writing letters, paying bills, and etc. I have not really worked in about 10 years. I have helped my husband through the years with his sign company, but I never felt like that was work because I was with my husband and he is so much fun to be with. Now I get up at 6:00a.m. and pray with my friend Peggy and then I am able to get about 2 hours of work done. Then my 8 year old is off to school and then I am with my 2 young ones, Cristian and Trevor. I am able to still work, but as you have read I am new at this. I have to get on a better schdule of working in the home, like my household chores, kids and then work. But then where does my private time come in. Any suggestions out there????? I am not complaining I know that the Lord blessed me with this job and I am having a great time with it. Just sometimes feel like I am losing it. Oh well. I have recieved my first order from KnitPicks and I will be posting some pictures on my blog soon. I am starting the Sophie Bag again because my first try I read the pattern wrong. I did mention before that I am new at knitting.

My Cristian (21/2) has now started preschool and boy does he think he is something else. He goes 2 days aweek, Wednesday and Friday. He is having a great time with it. Now Trevor (11/2) is not having a great time with, for he does not like having to be away from his brother to long. But I am enjoying it because now I get to spend some one on one time with him. We come home and he is the big boy of the house. I am sure that it is doing them good to be separted from one another for just a little while. Well time to stop and get dinner started together. Well try to post later.

Before I forget, I am going to Shelly's house on Friday for some stamping. Yes, you rock Shelly. If you are interested go check out Shelly's blog. She is a great person and her blog is fun to read. stampinshelly

What color are you????

Your Blog Should Be Purple

You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything.
You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey.
You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

What are you!!!

I am:
coffee filters
The old days of the grunting three gallon percolator are long behind us now. Praise the Lord!

Which office supply are you?
