Life has definitely kicked me around some this past year, and boy could I tell you all some stories! But, well, it's not really worth the retelling..at least not for now. But let me just sum up and say THANK GOD I am no longer 30!
The day of my 31st birthday I woke up so peaceful. And ever since I have been able to hold on to that feeling.
Sure life is still crazy at best, but at least now I can see the humor in it all. Or at least I try. =)
Part of the reason I have not posted in a while is because my computer is a piece of crap. It crashes on me all the time. I would love to get a new one but there is this thing called rent and car payment that just seem to be more important..but so far, so good tonight.
Hold on a sec...I need to find some wood to knock on.
K, lets see if that does the trick.
So yeah, hi!
Despite my lack of blogging I have been doing some knitting. Actually I have been starting a lot of knitting..but I have not finished much. Maybe this blogging thing will make me be more responsible...I did update the sidebar, did you notice?
However, even with my knitting ADD..I did finally finish the My So Called Scarf:
Knitting it on the other hand? It got to be quite the chore by the time I attached the 2nd ball. I think I need more of a pattern to keep me interested.
And, I have another FO to show you. This is another store sample I did for Ben Franklins. Forgive me, I don't remember the yarn..and I am too lazy to look it up.
Despite my best intentions to make the stripes match, the yarn decided that would not be the case. Oh well, I tried.
Now, this next bit..well..I try very hard to not succumb to the craziness of Christmas knitting. But a dear friend/coworker was expressing her desire to learn to knit better, and was telling me how much she would love a scarf. Well, what would you do?But since she is a coworker..and there are only 7 of us total for the front of house staff..plus the owner...I realized if I was going to do something for my dear friend I should probably do something for everyone else as well.
I am not sure if the 3 boys will get handmade stuff or not...depends on how much time I have left after the girls gifts..maybe I can crank out a few hats in the final hours..but no promises.
Here are the first 2 Christmas WIP's:
Look familiar? This is the Backyard Leaves Scarf from Scarf Style. This one will be for my lovely friend. It's more intricate, but I know she will appreciate it. And the yarn is a wool/acrylic blend that is sooooo soft.
This second one is just flying off the needles!
I am also hoping to make a pair of Lake Park Gloves and a Skull Illusion Scarf. Cross your fingers for me k?
And now, for something completely different! Guess who is addicted to the Mystery Shawl KAL's?I have yet to finish one of the shawls...but I just love joining up for them. I am bound and determined to keep up with the latest one.
The first clue was released earlier today..and guess who blew right through it?
Yeah, so that is what I have been up to (knitting wise anyway).
But, what I would like to know is how are YOU doing?
(By the way, the comp crashed once while I was writing this post..could be worse)
