What a week

This has been a busy week. I have been pretty much out if it for most of the week. The boys started scouts again this week and I am Chandlers den leader again. No I don’t know how to say no to people. I would really like to learn some day!! I have been one the computer 3 or 4 times this week. So I have a ton of email to catch up on.  I do know that I got my Sock-ret pal partner this week!! Yay!! I also got my October birthday swap pal Hanne-Maria go visit her blog http://vivikala.net/vakerrellen/ I have been looking and getting some things together for her. I got my sock wars socks done on Tuesday and sent out that day right before the post office closed! I didn’t think I could make a pair of socks that fast! The rest of the week I haven’t done much knitting I have almost one of Dad’s OSU socks done it’s turning out great!  No pictures yet I am going to wait until I get at least one done! That is really the extent of my week I am getting things ready to go to Mom and Dad’s for the weekend. Joe and Jacob are staying home so they can get some things done. It should be a nice weekend. Then it is back to being a taxi for the boys. Fun! Have a great weekend and Happy knitting!!!


What day is it??

Ok I haven’t been around much since Friday but my goodness I couldn’t even remember what day it was today! =)  I have been in my bedroom pretty much all weekend. I had chemo Friday morning and that was pretty much it for the weekend although I did manage to get started and finish one and 1/2 of my sock wars socks I am hoping to have them done and in the mail tomorrow.  That is all I have been knitting. I got my October birthday swap partner and my sock-ret pal partner. Those will be fun. Hanne-Maria I like all kinds of tea you can’t go wrong. For my sock-ret pal I have made a page of the questions for you so you don’t have to go digging through trying to find it . I got a comment about the Ohio State scarf I made if you email me I can send you the pattern I used. I would email it to you but you didn’t leave me your email address. I need to get back to some socks before I get killed!! Happy knitting! 🙂

Remember a few months ago…..

I told you that I had  custom ordered some yarn from Dani at Sunshine yarns, well I had given up hope and thought ok it will get here when it gets here. So I got an email from her last week telling me it was done!! YEA!!! Cool I can get dad’s socks started! So it gets here monday and right when I am winding it up my dad walks in the door! This was supposed to be a surprise for him, but he saw the yarn and was very pleased and now I can show you! If you love Ohio State you’ll love this yarn!!  

So I got those started the other night and the yesterday I joined yet another knit along. This one is for mittens and I really like making mittens so I started another pair yesterday. I am using Noro color 123 and alpaca in a camel color and I am going to felt them

I really like the way it is turning out. I have the first one almost done I’m sure it will be done tonight. For now I am going to go knit on dads sock and rest!! Have a great day and Happy knitting!!

Home and sore

I got home for the hospital yesterday afternoon. The surgery went well and I am the proud owner of a new port! At least my veins will be saved now. This is not going to be much of a post I am very tired and sore but I am fine so I just wanted to say hi!! I’ll be back tomarrow. Happy knitting!!

Scarf done

I got this done tonight I am really pleased with the way it came out. I love the colors plum,blue,and green the camera doesn’t pick it up well. I am going to be sad to see this go! It is so soft! That is ok. 1200 yarns of black and camel alpaca came home with me this weekend 600 yards of each I have plans for some of it but not all so we’ll see what I come up with. I am not sure what I am going to start on next. I think I am going to hold off for a few day because I will be is the hospital on Tuesday and then I have chemo on Friday so I don’t think that there will be much knitting going on this week. But with me you never know!! 🙂

ISE Scarf progress

I got this started the other night. I am using an alpaca/ silk blend it is so soft and warm and the colors. The camera doesn’t catch it well  but they are all really rich jewel tones. I hope that my pal likes it. I have been getting a lot of knitting done up next after the scarf is shedir from knitty for Caps for a Cure I am still working on a new hat design that has hit a brick wall right now so I walked away from it so I don’t ruin what progress what progress I have made but I probably will need a test knitter on this one but not for a while. I have to go and get the kids from school. Knit on and Knit often!!  

Yes another one

Since I had nothing better to do I got my mittens done. I am going to start my scarf exchange pal’s scarf next. I have some alpaca/silk blend I just have to come up with the pattern.  Well I am off to search!! Have a great night!!
