My addiction to knitting and the life around it.

God Bless America

First off, I’d just like to say that I’m so proud of all of the men and women that are fighting overseas so that we can keep the freedoms that we have come to know.  We wouldn’t be anywhere without them.  I will not take down my yellow ribbon in my car until all of you come home.  Just for some added support:

Anywho.  Just wanted to say that, since Wade left last Saturday (don’t EVEN get me started, or I will start crying…) to go back to Iraq for the last 4 months of his 12 month tour.  I can’t wait till he’s home.  It’s going to be a very nice homecoming, if I do say so myself =)

So, since I’ve joined Ravelry, I have made some amazing new discoveries about some amazing yarn to check out!  The best one so far is definately Fiber Oasis.  They’re coming up with their own site, but it’s not up yet.  They’re still using their Etsy shop until then [ here it is ].  I got this great yarn and I can’t wait to think of something to knit up with it!

But I think I’m going to end this post for now.  I’ve got a lot to get back to.  Hope everyone has a great night and I’ll post again soon, I promise!

Ravelry Is Amazing

So, I must say that Ravelry was well-worth the wait.  I love it and I really just can’t get enough of it!  Anyways, being on there has forced me to do some picture taking of my own so that I’m not the one without pictures for anything.  This being said, I FINALLY have an update for this silly blog =)  I’ve started the French Market Bag [ from Knitty! ] and it’s just knitting up so quickly.  I only cast on last night and I’m already done with the bottom of the bag!  Can you believe it?!  Anyways, here’s the yarn I’m using — it’s Lion Brand Wool in Sage and Midnight Blue.  There’s no Sage in the project yet, but it’ll be there VERY soon!

But, you know, other than that there isn’t really much going on with me.  I’ve been super busy with school and nannying — to the point that I can no longer meet with my SEKs girls [ I’m SO sorry ladies, but I’m now working every Tuesday afternoon and there is just no way to get there =( ].  I guess there are some things you have to sacrifice for your education, even if it means giving up hanging out with some totally awesome, rocking ladies!

I guess that’s all for today!  Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!!!
