Its been awhile since my last post. Life has really gotten in the way of a lot of things. I am still knitting when time allows. Havent altered a tin in ages. I just recently decided to learn crochet, but that isnt going as well as I thought it would. My health is still all kinds of messed up. I have a new doctor who is really great. He makes me feel hopeful that I will be "normal" again one day. Most of my time is taken up by daily visits to my local YMCA, and of course my kids and all of their activities. I am going to make a real effort to post here once a week. Not only is it updating you guys, it is a bit of a release for my frustrations. Hoping this post finds you all happy and healthy. Till next time...........

A Little Surprise!

While checking my mail yesterday, I noticed a small package from Washington. Jeanne from Ravelry(Oceansong) was the sender. So I opened the package and found some goodies! Boy did it make my day!!!! A bar of Peppermint Milk Chocolate from Seattle Chocolates, a tin of Peace Mints "Power to the people with fresh breath", and a set of stitch markers that Jeanne made herself!

What I want to know is, how did you know I LOVED Peppermint Milk Chocolate?? Ok, I guess I really dont care how you knew, just that you were kind enough to think of me! I love everything! The chocolate is Amazing. The markers are just the right size for my gloves. Havent tried the mints yet, but they are next on the list! Thank you again sooooooo very much! Your kindness really brought me outta my funk yesterday! XO's to Jeanne!!! :o)

Till next time....

I did it!!!!

I finished my first fingerless glove!!! Dont have a pic of it yet, but it looks AMAZING!!!! I am so proud of it. This pair will be given to my mom. They fit her like a glove....heehee
I will post pics of the pair as soon as the other one is finished!!

So my trip to the LYS was AWESOME!!! I have never seen soooooooo much yarn in my life! The kiddos played in the play room while my mom and I looked and fondled yarn for 3 Hours!!! I met some cool peeps there too! I forgot the camera, so no pics this time. But I will be going back there in May, so I will do pics then!! I picked up some super luscious Collinette yarn, a couple balls of Regia, some needles, and some yarn wash!! I picked up some other things too, but they are for my swap partner! Must be secret!!

I also when to see the Rheumatologist while I was out of town. Found out that I have Fibromyalgia now too! I am racking up the dx's here recently! Anyhoo, will be taking it one day at a time and learning all I can to keep the symptoms away. One step, Joining a Gym! Working out is killer, but will definitely do a body good down the road!

Thats all folks! Till next time.................

Knit Healthy!!!!

There are some other things that I need to catch you all up on, but I will do that later. Till next time.............

Knit Togetherness!

Friday, March 6, 2009


I am so glad it is friday for a bunch of reasons.

First, my hubby will be home in a few short hours. I havent seen him since monday. Second, I am getting a pedi @ 11:30am Saturday. Third, the first meeting of GC's SnB will get underway @ 2:30pm Saturday!!! I am sooooo excited about getting together with other stitchers and bitching about anything and everything! Oh and fourth, We are going to go bike riding with the kiddos this weekend. The weather is going to be great and the zoo is calling our names!

The new "blank" tins have arrived, and I have already been altering away. 2 down, 10 to go. I will post pics of the new tins maybe tomorrow after SnB.

Oh, I started on my first pair of fingerless gloves. Tried "fetching" a couple of yrs ago with no success. So, wish me luck with these! Hopefully I will have those done in a few days and can post pics for you all to drool over!! :o)

Gotta go feed my munchkin some lunch.
Till next time....... Knit Happiness!

Tin Swap

So, this tin swap is a lot harder than I thought! I am finding tins all over the place, but I am not sure they are the ones for my SP. I am not sure what to get when it comes to extras. GGRRRRRR I am told by everyone there to just buy things that I would enjoy and it will be ok, I am not so sure. It is kinda scary actually. I just want my SP to be uber excited about her tins n stuff. Out to figure more things to get. Till next time............

Knit Peace!

Swap Talk

So I am doing this swap on Ravelry right now, it is so cool! We are swapping tins! No, not the green money kind, altoids type containers. I am having a blast looking for tins all over the net and at my local antique shop. Now, I just need my swapee so I know exactly what to look for. Getting back into knitting has been really exciting! All the new yarns, notions, and patterns that are out there now. Cant wait to try em all! Till next time...........

Where has the time gone??

WOW!! More than a year since my last post. I have been super busy with the fam, the kiddos, work, and just life in general. I finally picked up the knit sticks a few weeks ago to knit a scarf. Now I am working on another one and I am going to make some matching fingerless gloves of some sort. Taking it slow though, carpal tunnel has reeked havoc on my right wrist. grrr
With life getting so crazy, blogging took a back seat for a long time. So, I promise to blog at least once a week from now on. I need to revamp my whole page too! Lots of work to be done here, so I had better get to it. I hope to reconect with all my knit pals and make some great new ones. So, til next time peeps, gettcho knit on!!!! :o)
