Okay, my first knifty knitter project



I started knitting a small swatch on a knifty knitter round loom so I could try and get the hang of loom knitting. However, I only used one strand of yarn and I think the piece looks a little "thin" for lack of a better word. Unless someone tells me that it is not going correctly I may continue so I have good practice. I know my DS will love the piece since he's already claimed the other pieces that I've knitted. :-) Such a sweetie he is :-)

I'm still getting used to this whole blogging thing. So I apologize if it's not very eye appealing just yet. I work on it a little bit at a time when I have a few free moments.

Tonite's funny kid story

Tonite we thought we'd try and put DS in the big bed and see if he would sleep in it. Well, he decided he wanted me to lay down with him and I did for about 10 minutes. I got up to leave and he cried and cried. :-( So we went back in and let him go back into the crib. He feels safe in the crib, I think. Anywho, we started putting everything back into the crib. His flashlights, his cup, his music box, his 2 blankets and once scarf; he decided he wanted the pillows from the bed. He got everything situated to where he wanted everything and he looked at us, pointed to the door and said "Go." LOL How funny is that, :-) He's done something like that only one other time and the timeing was pretty funny.

My retreat was canceled :-(

Today was supposed to be my secretary retreat. It got canceled and will be moved to the Fall. :-( I was so bummed when I got the cancellation. I had been looking forward to seeing and meeting all the secretaries in the diocese. I decided to look on the bright side since I didn't have to get up at 5 a.m. and leave at 5:30 a.m. I did sign up for a Tai chi class that will be held next month so I'm now looking forward to *that* :-)

I have vacation next week and I'm hoping to get in some me time. I've been working on yet another scarf to give away. I've also been snooping around the Web looking for tutorials to use the knifty knitters I bought. Those things are still intimidating me a bit. But I did find some on www.purlingsprite.com. I can't wait to have some time to sit down and actually practice some of it.

My first knit project

Wow I haven't posted for quite some time. A lot has been going one, but not all worth writing about :-) Anywho, I have gotten into knitting and here is the first project. I made it to give as a gift. (It's a clickable thumbnail)
