I know im behind on the times and every knit one about a year ago, I decided to knit one also. So I had a little bit of a hard time in the beggining but it all came together, i decided to do it all in one piece sides and back. I got so confused I wanted to scream. But all is well now and Im half way through the body. I think this is gong to be one of my favorites for a long time. Next up Rogue.

Ok so I know it's been a while but this time I really have a good excuse. I have been spinning, Yes spinning. it is the best feeling in the world to just sit and spin. Some of my old friends made fun of me and said they cant believe it, But I dont care. But I didnt stop there.I started to dye my own. The reward is these pictures. So i figured I add some stuff to etsy and see wht happens and so far I got 2 sales. "exciting" I really love the dyeing process its so much fun when you see the end result of your creativity. its so rewarding andI get to share it with everyone else out there in the spinning world. MY etsy shop is ceereese1.etsy.com come and visit and see the beautiful colors.
Knitting is great. I just finished Mr green jeans from knitty not to happy with the yarn I thought it draped too much. I use debbie bliss cashmerino. I started yesterday central park hoodie with jo sharp silk road aran. i love the color it's purple blue very deep shade of both can wait to finish this one it's going to be beautiful.
I will keep you posted.

I know I said I wasn't a big fan a few weeks ago, Well lied. I was looking through my draws and pulled out so many sock that I have knit throughout the years and wow I love them all. Sooooo !!!! I ran to the yarn shop and picked up some noro sock yarn and knit with this absolute beautiful yarn, A pair was born in two days. love it love it love it ! But the picture is not the noro, It is STR that I had in stash. Bought it as the MSWF way back. Im not crazy about the color orange but its nice when knit up. I have to think of someone to give these to. The bag was given to me by a wonderful person that was my SP, also long ago. Thanks Wendy? I still use it.
So on the personal level I need more hours at work so I am going to a temp agencies on wed. I'm not worried about finding work its just now that having a child seems like your looked down upon that your all of a sudden you are the unreliable one god forbid something goes wrong at the sitter or at home and you have to run. I do understand from the employee stance but at least give the person a chance. I can tell you on interviews in the past one of the first questions is do you have children? Why should that matter ! I could go on about this but I wont. I have to go and feed the child one of my stay at home duties. I don't stay at home all the time I do have a part time job, I need to make more money to get the personal bills down.

Ok So lately ive been knitting till my fingers bleed. It's so weird I couldn't pick up needles when i was pregnant, I wasn't that into it throughout all of last year, I guess moving was a big part. I was working around the house getting every thing together but Lately I can't put them down and when it gets closer to finishing one project im looking for the next on line. So what im getting at is I was looking through my stash and I came across Socks that Rocks That i purchased at MSWF when i went long ago with fellow knitters Dani and Mary. Im not a huge sock knitter and I wanted to do something different with this beautiful yarn, now that im knitting with it I wish I were more into knitting socks. the indoor picture does it no justice I should take a picture during the day. I love the interlock pattern so Im on a roll. I normally don't like doing the same pattern for a scarf but now that I know it so well after I did the first one I could watch TV and knit put it down and not forget my place.

I can't believe it. time flies when your so busy with an almost 2 year old. Life is good. The little one is so much fun not so terrible as of yet but im sure she will be there soon. I do miss being able to just get out and sit at knit night at panera but work gets in the way, so for me as of now knitting on my couch is all I can get. Which is fine I am content. I have been knitting, a few hats for little miss and dad. I made another noro throw its beautiful. and a great interlock scarf in a great cotton I found in stash storage. I have to take a picture of it and post. I have to make this short not sure who's gonna read this it's been so long, I miss all my knitting friends and want to see them again soon. one day soon I hope. Hope everyone has great holidays, and a happy healthy new year.
