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...

HA HA!!!! I finished 2 socks!!!!

Well, one of my brown/blue socks are finished!!!! YEAH!!!! But, it is a bummer that my second one is not finished yet... To break up the monotony I found a really cute MINI sock that I had to try out!!! It was on the new patterns from Knitting Pattern Central called Itty Bitty Sock pattern... I flubbed a couple of things in the pattern because I was lazy and did not want to go through the 5 toe decreases but it looks the same... SOOOOO CUTE!!!! I had to use DPN's!!! YUCK!!!! Next time I will never run out of toothpicks... It would have been a lot easier to do this tiny sock... I think I might make some more!!!! The tiny socks would be cute for keychains or an embellishment to a knitter's card....LOL!!!!

Wannabe Sock War Warrior

ROFL!!!! Talk about INSANE!!!! You all have MORE courage than I do... I have been keeping track of status on the forum for PLUMPY... She diligently knitted until her fingers fell OFF yesterday... She did not even touch the computer but for a 5 minute break... I probably should have participated but I am doing just fine knitting on my socks at my own leisure....hehe

I think the evil side will show itself within the next couple of days on how people react to being assassinated. Those of you sending NICE gestures and goodies to your opponent while killing them off is sweet...

Anyway, my blue/brown sock is coming along... I just wish I had an extra 2.5 needle to have the other one started so I can wear them as soon as possible... Cute/Cute!!!!

The weather has been dreary!!! We were hit in the Midwest by this Land Hurricane!! (It looked like one from the radar) Lots of Tornadoes and wind damage in surrounding areas. I wonder if Mother Nature is trying to tell us that WINTER is right around the corner. If it was in the dead of Winter, they said it would have been ONE ENORMOUS SNOW STORM!!!! I live in the wrong part of the country. I have to admit that I cannot stand the COLD or WINTER!!! The only thing that keeps my hopes up is the WOOL projects that you can't stand to touch in the summer will slowly come out of hibernation...

I am so ready to start knitting hats/scarves/mittens and of course SOCKS!!!! I have also thought about Christmas gifts...hehe Can't ever be too early on knitting gifts.

Have a Great Sunday!!!!

Keep up the Good Work Sock War Participants!!!! I am cheering you all on!!!!

Some More Pics of projects

Well, October is right around the corner. I thought about making some washcloths for the teachers. Wrap them around a sucker with a bow. Something special for the boys' teachers.

I think you all know what this washcloth is. I just love this pattern. It is finished and and waiting for a new home or to be used. After finishing the first one, it was a lot easier to follow the pattern...hehe
The next one is my Pink Sweater that I have been working on... I am getting to the point where I will starte the decreases for the arms... YEAH!!!! I am probably going to change the arms and make it my own... I love a flare arm and so we will see how it will come out.... I have been knitting a couple of rows here and there to stay active and not put it away to build dust... I want to wear it darnit... It is getting CHILLY in Missouri!!!!!

I just turned the heel on my brown and blue sock and will be picking up the gusset stitches.... YEAH!!!! The next pair of socks will be on the needles VERY shortly!!!!

It is about to POUR DOWN RAIN here!!!!! YUCKY!!!!! Have a GREAT DAY!!!! Ü

HA HA!!!! The Camera has been FOUND!!!!!

What do you know??? In the hubby's Truck..... I don't care... At least I found it!!!! I cannot live without my baby...hehe

So GUESS what today is????? PICTURE DAY!!!! I have been knitting like crazy!!!! mostly socks and I am getting some progress with my sweater.


DK Weight Socks that I absolutely LOVE!!!!

The yarn is called Baby Soft from Ben Franklin. I did these socks on size 4. The sock is a thicker sock and will be perfect on those hardwood floors this Winter!!!!

OK!!! I have to say that these are my all time favorite right now.. It was done on 2.5 needle. The yarn is Regia... I have wore these a couple of times already!!!! I love them!!!!

The Simply Lace Sock is being FROGGED!!! I love how it was looking until I started to do my decreases. I was using Red Hearts Sport weight and I just DO NOT like how it feels... YUCK!!! The yarn will have to be used for a HAT!!!!! I will do this pattern with a different type of yarn...

This is my next sock I am working on.....hehe I LOVE IT!!!! I love the colors.. I think it will be great with jeans... But, it has been on the back burning lately since I have been working on my sweater... They are anklets, so it will be nothing for them to be whipped off the needles...LOL

Well, I was going to post up 3 more pictures but blogger doesn't like me!!!! I will post my sweater and my other dishcloths that I have made later today...

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!!

Where O Where is my Digital CAMERA????

I think my hubby has successfully misplaced my NEW digital camera... Talk about a little TICKED!!!! I have all these finished projects that have been coming off the needles but NO PROOF to show... GRRRRR... I finished my pair of DK socks last week. Started on another pair of socks with sport weight yarn... It is the pattern from Interweave called Simply Lovely Lace Socks. It is in the same color of my sweater... What??? A girl has to match....ROFL!!! Lately someone has PUKED PINK on me!!!! I can't get away from this fuschia color... It is hard to get away from a color that looks good with your skin tone.. My sweater is moving along quickly on size 11 needles... I think I will be able to wear it sometime this winter...hehe

It has been on the colder side these past couple of weeks... I have been thinking about hats, scarves, sweaters, and Christmas stuff!!! You can never be too early on thinking about knitted gifts...

I found some adorable Christmas stockings that would be great to knit up since I have been on a kick with knitting SOCKS!!!! We will see..hehe

Well, I hope I don't have to call the detectives in to find my darn camera... If I find it I will have one hellacious picture day...

Have a GREAT Day!!!
