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...

Chevron Scarf Updates!!!

I started my Chevron Scarf this weekend!!! I never realized that a scarf could be so addicting!!! I love how easy the pattern is to memorize. I am really loving the color combo!!! It is colors that I would normally not be my first pick since my first choice would be pinks and reds and lime greens...LOL!!! I wanted to try something different and I am glad I did.. This scarf is TOTALLY MINE!!!!
I finally got to the knitting in the round on my Glee sweater!!! It will go fast now!!! I am hoping I will have this done very shortly!!! I am trying like MAD to get some projects off the needles... I have washcloth that needs to come off the needles also.
I finally got me a NEW cell phone yesterday!!!! YEAH!!! For the past 3 months I have had to deal with my #9 not working, sometimes my GO/GREEN button, and my battery taking a dump when I am on the phone for more than 5 minutes after it has a full charge...
I got me a PINK razor!!! Who would have thought, huh??? LOL OH WELL!!! My hubby has one too. We bought the USB port also. I wouldn't have the pic of the Chevron Scarf if it wasn't for me taking a pic and downloading it... I can't wait to play with some music and make some ringtones for myself. I guess that is enough about my new gadget!!!!hehe
BOOK REVIEW: Michelle Rowen Fanged and Fabulous (Series to Smitten and Bitten) If you are a fan to Paranormal Romance it is great read!!! I really didn't get into reading paranormal romance until last year. Romance books or what my dad likes to call them "SMUT BOOKS".. Plumpy A.K.A Wendy decided to get me hooked to some series!!!! I went to a couple of their book club meetings and got caught in some of the series that they were reading. I still don't care for historical romance or anything of that nature but the paranormal has been fun to read. I love reading in the SUMMER!!! My knitting goes on the backburner when I have a book coming out!!!!LOL Wendy and I keep track of our series books coming out!!!!
HARRY POTTER will be out Next WEEK!!! My knitting will definitely be on HOLD until I finish that humongous BOOK!!!! I cannot wait to have that book in my hands....

These are the 3 beauties that granted to be in presence today... I ordered these a couple of weeks ago before the 4th of July. I have been impatiently waiting for this package to show up...hehe

From Left to Right: Blue Moonstone, Ms. LaRock, and Pebble Beach.

Blue Moonstone and Ms. LaRock will become my Chevron Scarf. My Pebble Beach will be added to my ever growing sock yarn collection.. I will be doing a lot of sock knitting this fall...LOL!!!!

Can you tell that my color palette has changed!!! I am trying to get away from all my PINKS!!! I thought it would be a nice change to go with some different colors. Even though many of my wish lists for Blue Moon Fiber Arts has lots of pinks.

The Blue Moonstone is absolutely beautiful... I would love to knit some socks with this yarn. The color would be perfect with jeans....hehe We will see if my color combo will go together for my scarf. If not, I will be knitting some socks with this colorway. If you haven't went over to Blue Moon Fiber arts, you should. They have some new colorways to pick from.

It is nice and quiet at work today. NO KIDS!!!! My boys went with my MIL to the St. Louis Arch today!!! It is the first time they will be up in the Arch.. Yes, I know... They will be 8 next month and we live 15 minutes away and they have never been up in the Arch.. (Pretty Sad, Huh.)


My boys like to play with some kids next door. They were out playing when I was on our back porch BBQ'ing. The boys came running in to tell me this........

Youngest: Hey Mom!!! I just WON $15.

MOM: How did you win $15?

Oldest: My brother just ATE (2) WORMS!!!!! (As youngest is SMILING from ear to ear with the aftermath of the worms in his TEETH!!!!! OMG)


Youngest: SEE MOM, I GOT $15!!!!


My hubby and I had to sit him down and explain that just because someone wants you to do something doesn't mean you should do it spill!!!!

I just cannot believe he was bet to eat worms!!!! Sometimes I wonder if my life would be so entertaining if I had twin GIRLS!!!!!

Some Pics!!!!

Well I know that I haven't been posting lately and when I have it has been with no exciting pics or news....LOL!!!! I will said it myself, I have been BORING lately!!!! LOL

I have been dealing for the past 2 weeks with my DH being in and out of the ER for back and side pain. We thought and ALL of the DR's thought it was kidney stones. Come to find out that he had a BROKEN BACK!!!! We later found out that it was an old injury and that the pain was coming from a few pulled muscles and a pinched nerve...

My husband was cutting down a tree about a year and half ago and the branch fell and knocked the ladder out from under him. He threw the chain saw and landed on his shoulder and his neck. He dislocated his shoulder and that is when we think he broke a chunk off his L1... The Doc says that it is healing fine and so NO SURGERY!!! Thank the Lord!!!
So being at the hospital I have gotten some knitting done and read my Mary Janice Davidson Undead book.... I couldn't wait to borrow the book from Wendy, so I went ahead and bought it.....

I am 3 inches done with the underarm of my Glee Tee. I have 2 1/2 inches to go before I start knitting in the round. I cannot wait to get this off the needle.. I finished one of my first Jaywalker socks in STR Sherbet. I love the colors!!! The sock is extra thick and will definitely be a wonderful sock for those cold winter
nights....hehe I cannot wait to wear them. I bought some more STR sock yarn and I am waiting for them to ship... I cannot wait to start my Chevron Scarf. I picked STR Ms LaRock and Blue Moonstone. I also bought STR Pebble Beach to add to my collection of sock yarn that I will start knitting in the fall...

I have about 2 inches done on the 2nd Jaywalker. I haven't knitted on them as much as my Glee Tee because I want that done quickly as possible.

I hope that all of you had a wonderful 4th of July. DH was off work for the first time on the 4th and it was quite nice to enjoy the day with him and family. We all came home with all 10 fingers and toes...

Have a Great Weekend
