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...

Some Family Photos!!! :-)

WE got some really GREAT pictures on Christmas Eve and I thought I would share our beautiful family... My sister's house is BIG enough to hold a LARGE crowd of family and friends...hehe This picture from L to R is my sister Anika, Wendy(Better known as Plumpy) and myself...

We had so much fun sitting back and watching our 6 kids run around like crazy people while we chit chatted and ate until we felt sick...LOL

I actually sat back and knitted for a bit while the kids opened gifts....LOL!!! Don't get me wrong, I didn't get much done because Wendy and I were talking our heads off!!!! ROFL

Here is another pic of my sis, my mom and me... We had so much fun together!!! Our family definitely knows how to have a good time...hehe We did have a moment of sadness this year at Christmas. This was the first Christmas without both of our Grandparents. My Grandpa passed away January 4 2005. It has been a rough road for the family and beings the last grandparent I had living was very humbling. Our family had many dear to our hearts pass away in 2005. BUT, they will NEVER be forgotten but remembered each and every day!!!

I am so thankful to have such a supportive and closeness to my family!!!!

I have been knitting on and off today... Working on a hat, my purse and learning to cable... Why didn't anyone tell me that cabling was so EASY!!!!! I waited this long to face one of my fears and now I feel like a dork.....ROFL!! Well, I guess I can check mark one thing off my 2006 list of knitting....hehe

I will get a little bit more done on my cabling and I will post some pics..

Enjoy your Sunday evening!!! Ü

    Those are wonderful family photos. I'm glad you enjoyed the holidays.

    Cabling is easy. I felt the same way: had a fear of it until I experimented with it.

    The irish hiking scarf is a nice cabled scarf and the pattern is pretty simple.

    Hope you have a wonderful new year!
