WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters.

Whew. Christmas flew by. We had an awesome holiday. N spent a ton of time playing with his cousins, hanging out with grandma and grandpa, seeing his aunt and uncle. Just getting in a lot of quality time with family. Pure bliss. Of course, he was spoiled by santa. He is on cloud 9 with all of his new toys and games. We played Candy Land yesterday with his cousins and today I think we will have a couple of games of Old Maid and Chutes n Ladders. 

I am still working on my WIPS. I finished a pair of socks for my mom. She does not have a single hand knit item from me and this needed to be fixed. The color changes in these socks are my favorite. The bright oranges to the sharp teals makes my heart sing.
 Today I will finish up my Opal socks. I am so excited to wear these adorable socks. I love how Opal Yarn stripes. This is my first pair and I am thrilled to get more Opal yarn (after some more WIPS are done!)
My flowers bloomed on Christmas. What a small and awesome surprise. Made my day. I cannot wait to see what is on everyone's needles. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and here is to a great 2016. Cheers.

Yep. I am still alive & knitting

Hello world! I am back. It has been forever, FOREVER since I last blogged. I miss blogging but things have been a whirlwind here. Now, they are clamming down and I can finally catch up! 

What's going on... well, we pick up our son everyday from school, after work. We drove past a very cute house for sale. Everyday. Finally my husband and I thought, well it does not hurt to ask and look. We went and looked at the house and lets just say the instant we walked it we knew it was NOT for us. However, it got us think... why do we still rent after 5 years. We found a Realtor and started looking. In two weeks we had an accepted offer and were moving in 30 days. WOW, that was a lot to take in. We were excited, worried, over-whelmed... pretty much feeling every emotion possible. We moved October 29th and had our duplex up for rent. It rented yesterday. Now, I feel like I can breathe. Just take a step back and enjoy the life changes. My son loves his room. We are lucky and now have a fenced in backyard for the dogs to run. It is just now sinking in that we have a home. 

On to knitting. After packing up ALL my knitting projects and yarn, I realized I could knit for the next 10 years without buying a thing. Recently, I became good friends with a coworker. She is awesome. She asked for a knitted cowl for the cold winter days (ironically the lack of) in WI. I was very excited to make her something. I started the Devonshire cream cowl and I love it. I hope she does too.

Since the weather was not creating the Christmas spirit, I decided to make holiday stitch markers.

It is the little things that can make a big difference. Tis the season.
