My girls are killing me! I am trying to lose 15 pounds by 2/26. They are in the kitchen "baking" which in my house means making a mess, a really big one! Daughter # 2 is making brownies and a cake. Daughter #3 is making peanut butter bars. People, I am only human. The cake and brownies don't stand a chance! I am dead. Even the treadmill won't help me. So, please, send me your support.............LOL.
Okay, knitting news. I am on the right front of the Central Park Hoodie. I am determined to finish it. I have been looking at Anemoi mittens and the new piecework magazine, which I purchased yesterday. I would love to make both of these. I am not too crazy about an afterthought thumb. Anyone else share the same feelings? I sent off these 2 red scarfs today. I enclosed Sweet tarts and a book of stamps with each!

Sam's Sweater

Here it is! As you can see she loves it. I am so glad. I wished that I had used something better, but I paid only $10 for the yarn at Walmart and it is all machine washable. SO- she can wash it herself! It is knitting pure and simple in Bulky something cheap for $1.67. And its not blue!!!

Happy New Year!

So my KMSK has arrived from the lovely Shelley. She made me a beautiful sock type bag and included some blue and black cashsoft, needles a magnetic chart :) Dark chocolate (Mine, Mine Mine!) and a cute pattern. Thanks so much. Eve of was the recipient of my Kit. I did not take a pic so hopefully she will post one and I can steal it! I had fun making hers and had to stop myself from going too far. I joined 3 other swaps and can't wait to send those out as well. It is fun to share knitting with others. I have no one here to talk to about my knitting-kinda sucks! Thanks to all you bloggers-you are my friends!
I have been knitting up a ton for Christmas and gave it all away. I have only a pic of my youngest wearing, yes wearing a sweater I made. She is too cute. SHe wore it to school and no one believed that I made it. She said she would find a mistake and prove it-ha none! She was bewildered! I can not upload a picture tonite. I will try again later!
I have been making red scarves 2 so far for the Red Scarf Project. Fun Fur hats for the Boston Childrens Hospital. I am sick of my Central Park Hoodie. Back finished front started and am not loving it.........figures its for me! I also made 2 branching out scarves, 3 pairs of fingerless gloves, beret for mom, mittens for daughter #2, and hats and gloves for Cots. I am dying to knit up a pair of socks.
Good Night and thanks for reading!
PS Daughter #1 - no news is good news:(
