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...

Happy Monday, I Guess!!!!

Yep, it is Monday!!!! WooHoo!!!! The only thing I am happy about is that my boys are in school today.... ROFL!!! Having a half day on Weds. and then having Thursday and Friday off was a madhouse... I don't know how I did it before they were in school... I guess because I made them take naps until Kindergarten....hehe Mommie has to have a break!!!!

We bought the boys 2 new bikes this weekend and that helped....LOL!!! One of their bikes got stolen 2 weeks ago... Hubby was not happy... He went and cased out the WHOLE neighborhood this past week looking for the bike.

We bought the same exact bike for the both of them... NO FIGHTING!!!! I don't know if it is just boys that do that but it definitely gets on my last nerve... They were waiting at the bus stop this morning kicking each other in the shins... I mean, " COME ON!!!!" Some days, I just wonder what it would have been like if I would have had twin GIRLS!!! ROFL

Hubby went racing this weekend and by 10am Saturday morning I already had to discipline the littler one of the two. He bit his brother... GRRRRR!!! I called hubby and told him that I was on STRIKE from MOTHERHOOD!!!! It doesn't last long but a nice hour of time out in MY room locked away does the mind and body good....hehe

Enough of me ranting...hehe

Knitting News!!!
I have been trying to knit on my Little Devil Lisa Souza socks for a month now... I have ripped it out 3 times... First time the pattern did not look right with the colorway. The second and third time the decreases did not look pretty enough.

My yarn came in this weekend for Glee... I cannot wait to start that pattern... It will be a change from my socks...hehe

I hope you all have a Decent Monday!!!

Some Sneak Peeks of the Swatches!!!

Many More coming SOON!!!! I think they all came out AWESOME!!!! I am totally addicted!!! So what do you all think??? I think I found an obsession...ROFL!!!!
We will keep a skein or 2 for ourselves but the rest will be put on Ebay or Etsy. What is going to be the hard part is picking one for myself....hehe
We tried our hand at a little Kool aid dying too... We also did a couple of skeins at self striping.. I am so addicted that I bought more dyes last week... Oh, I cannot wait until the NEW colors come in!!!!
Come Back to see more of the swatches!!!! Tell me what you think!!!! I would love some input!!! Ü


Allergies Suck really BAD!!!!!

I guess spring is in the air because my head and nose are feeling the pain!!!! I have been praying for some warmer weather but not a head cold... YUCKY!!!!! I have been dealing with my boys and their allergies and have been pumping all of us with TONS of Vita C like crazy this Winter... Anyway, enough of my belly aching.... LOL!!!

Last weekend, I went over to my friend Tabitha's house and handpainted and dyed 16 skeins of yarn.... LOL!!! I never knew how addicting it could be... I have been knitting up swatches this week for each one... We had her hubby make some Niddy Noddies and he is going to make some Swifts also... All of the skeins came out Beautiful.. I will have some pictures up after I can get my scanner to work... I have TONS of pictures and I will taking some pics of the swatches after I put them in the wash..

I think Plumpy can agree that dying yarn is TOTALLY ADDICTING!!!! She has dyed some yarn that is really pretty... I see some socks in my future!!!!! I haven't done much productive knitting besides swatches but I got some patterns that I think will be started on the needles... Plumpy and I are thinking about doing a pattern together...

One of my Best Friends is having a baby this Summer... I cannot wait to find out what she is having so I can start knitting up some cute baby stuff... I really want to knit up some GIRLIE stuff!!!! hehe Either way, I will be knitting some baby stuff...LOL!!! I can't wait!!!
