These two lovely balls of rowan calmer in kaki came yesterday from london that I won on ebay. the bid was over on sunday and at my door on thursday. mean while Ive been waiting over a month for someone else to get it in for me. Ahhhhh ! that just kills me and dani knows who im talking about. And to boot I got it for half the price. Ha !!!!Posted by Picasa

YAY !!!!!

I can Finish I can finish........
This was lonely Tempting II. She has been wait for me for over a month.
It's funny I was petting her every now and then while I was working on the fitted tank, I think she was getting jealous. I just love the feel of the yarn. I know im crazy but there's a lot of you knitters out there that do the same thing. Posted by Picasa

The hair is gone...

And I love it. I was so sick of the long hair, I was so sick of it. So I went to the salon and told them to cut it off and the girl looked at me like I was crazy, I've done this before so it's nothing new but I didn't think I was gonna do it this soon. The sucky part is trying to grow it out but I don't think im going to grow it out any time soon with the summer coming. Posted by Picasa

Flying fingers Purchase

New project, I have been waiting to start it and now it's time.
Works up fast. The pattern is blue sky fitted tank and the yarn is the organic cotton in shade pumpkin. I think I will be done with this in no time, It works up so quick, Im gonna need another project. I think I should just concentrate on the cable sweater that is sitting in the bag screaming for me to finish her soon. Im too bored with it, and im almost done with the sleeves and then it's putting it together. Posted by Picasa

Needle crazed.

Spring colors. I dont know why but these were the colors I was sticking with while I was making them, And I didnt even realize that spring was a few days away. So yes Im at it again. Who didn't get a pair the last time I made them? And who needs another pair? I know missys cat ate hers, So she need another pair. Any one else? Just email me your address, I will be happy to send them to you. Posted by Picasa

FInished socks.

Not a great picture I know, But I finished them and they are on my feet and thats all that counts, They were meant for Mark but they were too tight going around his ankle so I adopted them. I cant wait till the other trekking comes in the mail. Posted by Picasa

Mom In Law Scarf!!!

Well I absolutely have no time or business posting right now when I have to be at work at 10:30 and im not even in my uniform yet. But I had to show you this. I bought my mother in law the Happy hooker from Dibbie Stoller because she's big on Crochet. And I gave her some yarn that I have been eyeing for a while and knew it would be a great scarf but I didn't want a regular knit one row purl one row scarf. So Tada!!!!!! She said she did in it in a hour. Wow. I wish I can make a scarf that fast. But any way. I gave her PATONS Classic wool and the colors are noro Kuyeron. I am so glad I get to wear this for the next few days due to the cold weather.
I need to cut this short I have to get dressed. Posted by Picasa

1 Sock 2 Sock = 1 Pair.

Well almost a pair. Alright I know I am contradicting my self when in the beggining I said I threw trekking right in the cubby hole and didn't look back till I saw the color ways in some of the other bloggers socks out there, I knew I had to pick it back up. so now I absolutely love Trekking, I love it so much that I ordered more. And I am getting very impatient, I can't wait till it gets here to start a new pair. All I have to say is Trekking is AWESOME!
So I was reading danis Blog and I feel the same way she does lately. I feel like there is no end in site and it drives me crazy. I need a vacation, like tomorrow. But we all know in the real life on long Island we can't do that. Because we need to work and can't afford to. I think im speaking for my self. I need a house and I need to get on the ball with things like looking for one, and start planning a family and I am being impatient, I know but I cant help it. Posted by Picasa

Trekking Colorway 76

Some trekking for anyone's taste. I did tell Dani that I threw it in one of the cubby holes when I first started with it, But now it's back. I do like it a lot and I guess I didn't give it a chance to grow on me. It seems like everyone is working with it, so I just ordered more from the no shipping cost I think it's worth it. I bought 2 skeins. One in 100 and 110. Great colors. I can't wait till it gets here.
As of today so far it's been a great weekend. went to dinner with some great friends and had a bunch of laughs. I think the weather is getting everyone into spring fever. I cant wait till the summer, And Im not one to say this but I really can't wait till the flowers start blooming and every thing turns pretty again.
Have a great weekend everyone. Posted by Picasa

Well I guess it's contagious with the running out of yarn for tempting. I had to order some more, I don't know what happened, I thought I was on gauge. I was so close to finishing. So now I have to wait two weeks till it comes in. I rather just order it myself but then I have to spend an extra 5 bucks for the shipping. Whatever! I shall wait.
So I moved on to the Baby Bobbi Bear from blue skys. As of now I am at the Butt part and I was stumped So apparently there are more correction that I found on the blue sky's site even more to what the pattern came with. Drive me crazy why don't you. I have yet to find a pattern that I can sail through. I effffin hate patterns they all suck.
So tomorrow is my day off and I don't know what to do, I know what I should do but the question is am I going to do them or am I just going to sit and knit all day. Im not sure yet. I shall let you know tomorrow morning. As for now I am going to bed. I don't know how I am still up.
Good Night.
