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...

Oh Gosh, has it been that LONG!!!!

I am such a BUM!!!!! It feels like Christmas was just yesterday and now we are almost done with January. I have been knitting and reading and ORGANIZING!!!! I have so many pictures to show but can't find my darn camera... Isn't that always my excuse... hehe

Plumpy and I have a challenge every month that we are knitting a project together. I am almost done with my snake scarf.. It is going to be a Birthday present for my mom next month. I am also going to knit a ponytail hat to match. I finished my Mountain Colors socks and they will be going to my MIL today for her birthday. I have never given a pair of socks as gifts... It will be hard to part from them. You put so much effort into a pair that it is hard to give them away... I hope she will like them and enjoy them...

I have been reading the The Golden Compass and finally I am getting into the book... It had a rough start only because the beginning was hard to understand. Plumpy said that I should have went and seen the movie because it explains it a little more... I usually cannot watch a movie and then read the book. The book is definitely interesting. I have some other books that I have in holding and I cannot wait to read them.

I have some wonderful things to photograph when I find my camera and I promise to show them....

I don't know about you all but I am REALLY DONE with this COLD weather... No wonder people get depressed when it is COLD outside... 7 degrees sucks!!!! My boys just don't get it that it is TOO cold to go outside and play... The Wii has come in handy though and they are definitely enjoying that on these cold days...

Everyone, stay warm and if it is WARM, I despise you right now!!!! LOL

First couple of projects to start of the NEW YEAR!!!

K-Snake Scarf
Patons SWS 3 skeins
size: 10 1/2 needles

The pattern was a little hard to start since I didn't understand it. I did a little research to find out that the pattern had some issues. I got some great tips to help me along and now I am on my way... Wendy (Plumpy) and I are doing (1) project a month together. I think it definitely motivates us to get it done since we are our own support buddy... It is so much easier doing a pattern with others... Of course, you can go on Plumpy's blog and see that she started before me and has more done... Her scarf is coming out very pretty even though she is having MAJOR issues with the yarn.

Mountain Colors Bearfoot Socks
Mountain Colors:
Size: 2.5 needles
size 8 foot

I got some Mountain Colors Bearfoot yarn from my Aunt Sherry for Christmas and I had to start on a sock immediately... The Mohair makes if feel so luscious... It feels like cashmere on my feet... Love it!!!! I just did a short cuff and CO 64 stitches... It fits GREAT!!! I started on the next sock so it would have a pair... I don't want the other one being lonely...

Nothing like starting the NEW YEAR with a Police Report!!!!! YEAH!!!! My son's $150 skateboard was stolen and I had to make a police report. I seen the kid late yesterday night on his bike holding a skateboard. I told him(by his name) I hope to God that is not one of my boys skateboards..

My DH insisted filing a police report since this boy has stolen many other items from our neighborhood and was caught doing it... Needless to say, it ended on a good note.. We got the board back!!!

Hubby had to work today and so me and the boys are just hanging out and watching wrestling...LOL!!! I am knitting on my sock right now but still no pics... I forgot my camera at the store yesterday...

I hope everyone has a nice day!!! Ü
