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...

Is Spring HERE???

OHHH Goodness, I hope so!!! The weather has been on the mild side and I am hoping it only gets better... We are suppose to get some nasty rain this weekend but I will take that over ICE!!!!

I have been knitting... I PROMISE!!!! I have been knitting a baby dress for a girlfriend and the "We call them Pirates" hat. I also have been knitting on a sock.

I did buy a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts "Foo Foo" the other day.. I cannot wait to get that in... It was shipped so I should get it very soon!!!!

Don't you LOVE this handsewn drawstring sock bag!!!! Guess who made it??? Not ME!!! ROFL!!! My dearest mother has been making a TON of these!!!! I think Plumpy is a little jealous since I have been teasing her about it... I think on of these little cutey patooties are in her future REAL SOON!!!! My mom is going to start selling these puppies!!! She also has made me a knitting needle holder!!!! I will have to get a picture of that too!!!! The sock bag is reversible!!! I just LOVE it!!! She has made smaller ones and bigger ones!!!!

We are planning on going to some LYS to gawk at some yarn this weekend!!! I cannot wait!!!! I think I am having withdraws with fondling some yummy yarn!!!

I will definitely posts some pics if I buy some yummy yarn!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!!!

Where is SPRING!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am so done with this weather... It is 13 degrees out right now!!! Yesterday we had some type of warm front for 4 hrs... It was like almost 60 degrees and then it dropped down to the single digits... What is that all about!!!!

I have been depressed about the weather and so my pick-me-up has been knit shopping for yarn and other things... ROFL!!!! What better way to make yourself feel better... I just received my Socks that Rock "Lagoon".... I LOVE how this feels.. I am trying to figure out what pattern I am going to use.... BUT, that is not all!!!! I still have my Lisa Souza Valentine sock yarn that I will be starting before that..

Plumpy and I had a couple of free hours to spare before our boys came home early from school. We went up to our LYS and bought some yarn.... ROFL!!!! (See what I mean) I bought my first skein of Trekking and Wendy and I will be doing the same pattern for this project.. YEAH!!!! I also bought some Regia yarn in pink and black to start some mittens!!!! I can't wait to start on some mittens.

I tried to find the FOLK MITTENS book at Borders and the LYS but I did not have any luck... I did have luck on Ebay yesterday and bought a brand new book for $14... What a STEAL!!!! I think Plumpy is JEALOUS!!! I had to rub it in last night!!! I think both of us will be taking advantage of this book together...

My Knitpicks Options needles should be any day now and I am waiting patiently (not really) to dive into them... I cannot wait!!!!

All of you STAY WARM!!!! I will be sitting here drinking my piping HOT coffee and caressing my NEW YARN!!!

A Groundhog Day to CELEBRATE!!!!

SPRING is COMING SOON!!!!! What a relief!!! I had to drive through what looked like a BLIZZARD today for about 15 minutes... By the time I got to work it was OK... I am so looking forward to Spring being right around the corner...
I finished one sock and the 2nd sock I am at the heel flap... They will be done very soon so I can start on my Valentine Socks... I bought some Little Devil from Lisa Souza and it is ready to start my socks.... YEAH!!! I cannot wait to start some socks with this yarn.. It is sooo vibrant RED that I cannot wait...

I finished my Hoodie Shrug... It is in the process of being blocked... Pictures to come shortly... It might be gifted to my sister...hehe

On some good news!!! My Knit Pick Options needles are in transit to my house!!!!! YEAH!!!! I cannot wait to use these... I have heard some really good reviews and I am looking forward to knitting with them...

I took a break last night from knitting my sock and started reading Mary Janice Davidson's book called "Sleeping with the Fishes". It is definitely an EASY read... I don't know about you but an easy read to me is the spacing between lines on a page... I will not buy a book if the lines are so close together that it is hard to read... (I know, I have my hang-ups....ROFL!!!) James Patterson is my all time favorite author because his chapters are short and the spacing on his pages are very easy to read... I love Mary Janice Davidson's Undead Series. The Harry Potter book will be out this summer... I am looking forward to this book but then I am not... The series has so much potential to keep going... It SUCKS!!!!

I love you Mr. Groundhog for bringing us some WONDERFUL news!!!

Stay Warm!!!!
