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...

Diagonal Ribbed Hat

Not much has been going on here... The snow has stopped in the area but the rain has taken its spot. There are many cities and counties that are flooded or on the breaking point. Some places have had 6-7 inches of rain the past 2 days... Can you believe that!!!! It has finally stopped for the time being. I think it will be raining this weekend for Easter also.

I was playing with some stitch patterns the other day and made this baby ribbed hat. I don't like the decreases that I picked and so I will be trying out some others to see if it looks ok.

I have also been knitting on my second Pink Punk sock. I have about 3 1/2 inches on the leg... I bought some KnitPicks Cotlin the other day and started on the Ribbed Lace Bolero in a Hot Pink. I really like the Knitty 2008 Brighton bag and bought some Cotlin for that. I bought some Lime Green to do the Everlasting Bagstopper also. I want an easy bag for the summer months.

Plumpy and I are PROUD owners of Perchance to Knit Black Rainbow. It is being shipped today and we cannot wait to get our hands on this sock yarn.. We have been drooling over this colorway for awhile now and we can't wait to knit up some socks with it. I know Plumpy already has a pattern for hers but I haven't decided yet...

I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday!!! My boys start Spring Break tomorrow and don't go back until Tuesday. They don't get a full week like the other schools around us. The teachers were kind enough to take 2 conference days that they were suppose to be off to work so we will not have to make up snow days... I am so happy because no one wants to go to school after Memorial Day...

I am so ready for Summer to be here!!! Ü
