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...

Knitty Pattern Update!!!


I started on the Knitty RPM socks last night while watching Men in Trees and Criminal Minds... I stopped watching American Idol since Michael John got voted off... What a rip off!!

I did one pattern repeat and I am liking how it is turning out. I am hoping that the Perchance to Knit Black Rainbow is the right combo... I wanted to find a pattern that hasn't been done in this yarn and show how pretty the colors blend together... The Yarn base is like "Butter"... I absolutely love how it rolls through my fingers...hehe She is pure Genius because the colors are vibrant and absolutely LOVELY!!! I cannot wait to put these on my tootsies...LOL
On the other hand I have made a little progress knitting on the Knitty Brighton. The yarn is KnitPicks Cotlin in the Linen. I am almost finished with the first ball. I will say that it is slow going since the K3TOG's are killing my wrist. I have been trying successfully to knit at least 1 pattern repeat. I have to have 13 and 1/2 inches before I am done and I have around 6 inches.... I am definitely going to block this purse...

I haven't picked out what fabric I want to use for the liner yet but I want to be almost done before picking out my selection. It is going to be my summer bag. I think I might sew in a water bottle holder in the material. I am hoping it is big enough that I can fit quite a bit in when we go to the pool... I hope I will have some more progress on both of these projects very soon...

Hubby has been out of town and believe it or not my house is clean, laundry is done, supper has been on the table, business is running smoothly, and I have been able to get some knitting done... Woohoo... The boys on the other hand are missing daddy and counting down the days on when he will return... I don't tell hubby but I am missing him too... My puppy has been my sleeping partner which has helped... We have a lot planned for this weekend to keep the boys occupied...

Have a Great Week!!!

    Help! I just knitted your hello kitty wash clothe and there seems to be an error (major) at the top. It appears 9-11 rows are missing. I hope you read your blog and might be able to make the corrections.
