I have found a new favorite yarn it is amazing, soft, easy to knit with and is machine wash and dryable I have been knitting baby sweaters with it and they are so cute. It is Lion Brand Vanna's choice. Lots of colors to choose from check it out. I think you will love it too. I am almost finished one of my sweaters I will post a picture soon.

Okay this is another post that maybe only Laura will appreciate and I wish I had taken before and after photos I have a major problem with my yarn stash I have a dresser downstairs I have bags in my bedroom and I always seemed to have piles and baskets and bins full surrounding my favorite knitting chair in the living room. Then I bought this wonderful wicker shelf from Canadian Tire ok so it was not so much fun to put together my friend Janet nearly killed me as I called her for help (and by help I mean I got her to do it all lol) it comes in about 3 million pieces even the basket style drawers had to be assembled but I feel it was well worth all the sweat and swears lol. It ahs solved the problem of the living room stash I can now have piles of yarn right at my side and it looks so pretty.

So the other day my oldest nephew (12) asked me to make him a toque I agreed but was nervous as he is fairly fussy so he picked out some colors and told me how he wanted his stripes to be. I then went to one of my favorite knitting sites Ravelry and started to look for a hat pattern I thought he may like. I came across a pattern by
stephanieknits.blogspot.com it is called a hat fit for a boyfriend. So I knit this toque a bit taller than the patter suggested and called my nephew to come try it on, I waited as he tried it on and checked it our a few different ways and in a couple different mirrors and heard him mutter as he came down the stairs "this is the sweetest hat ever" oh my was I happy he has been wearing it almost non stop and wants a couple more in different colors lol. I am just so happy. I am also making one for my daughter I will post pics of her wearing it.
Okay I am back I know I have said this before but I am serious this time lol. I have been off work for a few days with a bad back so I have been spending alot of time on my couch taking it easy....thank goodness I can knit laying down. I have been busy getting caught up on projects that have been put on hold. Hoping to get some sweaters and vests knit up for the christmas craft fair. That's all for now my back is sore and I have to go to the grocery store :(

wow I have been totally slacking with my blogging but I am so behind in everything these days, I have about 7 knitting projects on the go and not just ones for fun but ones that have to get done ugh add on to that work, child and everything else and it doesn't leave much room for anything. Plus I have about a million things running through my brain right now so sleep hasn't been on the agenda much either hmmmmm perhaps I should make my evening snack tequila shooters and that would probably help me
pass out sleep lol.
