Knit Diva

Me and my obsession has come a long way since last couple of years... I definitely still consider myself a beginner and always looking to improve my obsession. I think it is my "CALGON"... It takes me away from my busy life with a wonderful husband and 8yo twin boys... YIKES!!! I never understood how addicting yarn could be until I started knitting.. I have crochet for some time on and off but I never felt attached to it as I do with knitting...

I Did it!!!! I Did It!!!!!

OK, so I have some GOOD NEWS today!!!! YEAH!!! I finally have figured out my sock... I am on the decreases of the gusset and almost ready to do the foot!!! I am so excited I figured it out... I am hoping I have the same luck on the second sock that is right at the picking up gusset part...LOL!!!! I will make sure to show pictures after I finish the decreases... I stalked Wendy "Plumpknitter" to call me so I could give her the good news!!!! What a BIG accomplishment for the day!!! I can check mark by "Wanting to learn to knit socks for the year!!!!



Anyway, I know it has been almost a week since I last posted.... Busy, Busy, Busy!!!! I worked All Weekend on those Pencil toppers and dropped them off at school Monday!!! I was so glad to be done with that project. The boys and I picked out Halloween pencils to put them on... It was a cute projects but my little fingers were done with the itchy scratchy acrylic Red Heart Yarn when I was done....LOL!!!



I went to Hobby Lobby with my mom last week and started on my Harry Potter scarf... I love the colors and I started doing it in the round... Well, needless to say, You can see the picture of the scarf but it magically disappeared into froggy land.... ROFL!!! I thought it was TOO BIG at first and then I wasn't happy with the changing of the colors. So I ripped it ALL out!!! Then I was so mad at myself because after I started thinking about it, it was the right width and the changing of the colors wasn't that noticeable. So this is the time that I could use a little magic to make it reappear but OH WELL!!! i casted back on again this week...hehe This will take me forever so I might make a hat and mittens in the mean time...LOL

I Have been stash tagged by Knitting Satori!!!! YEAH!!! You don't know how hard this is going to be...hehe I have yarn stashed in places ALL over the house!!!! It will probably be this weekend before I pull them out but it will definitely help me out to check out what I really do have... I know I don't have NO extravagant stash like others I know but it will be fun to see those skeins I forgot about and scheme up projects for...hehe



Welp, that is all for now folks....hehe I couldn't resist taking this picture the other day... That is what happens when your little guy goes a FULL day of kindergarten....LOL!!! He is so exhausted after school... He actually fell asleep like this.. My boys are into wearing costumes and of course when Halloween comes around they get ALL their old costumes out and "DUKE" it out in the Living Room....hehe

Have a Great Evening!!!! This Chick gets to go to the Pumpkin Patch with her boys tomorrow... I will have some pics to put up tomorrow...hehe

    Sure, the site is http://www.frugalhaus.com/homepage/pumpkintopper.htm and they have ALL sorts of different little projects like that... They even have some for Christmas...

    I will say that I switched the green when they said to bind off and did a couple of rows with the green and bound off... It was so much easier that way than sewing...hehe

    The easier the BETTER!!!!

    My boys have been into costumes since 2yo.. We definitely get our monies worth out of them...ROFL!!! I love that they have an imagination like that!!!!
