Out of the mouth of babies

Now that the Elections are finally over, we can all concentrate on the up coming Holiday’s Seasons. It has been a Historic year, with our new President elect Obama. What has truly surprise me this year, has been the excitement of the young children. My Granddaughter, who is barely five, has been an Obama advocate. First things she asked upon waking up after Election Day was “Who Won!” To say she was very happy to hear the outcome would be an understatement. Instead just take a look at this picture and see if you can see her excitement upon finding out who will be our New President.


In the knitting department, I’ve started a sweater for myself, along with putting together a hooded jacket for my granddaughter. In the meantime, I’ve started a project which includes researching, an old myth. This myth is about the theories that if you knit a boyfriend a sweater he will most likely leave you. So many ladies are afraid to knit fiancee' sweaters, because of this theory. Personally, I have…

Another one down

I had some Lamb Pride wool, in a color in which I wasn't too crazy about. So I made this. A bag for my laptop! It's really nice and thick, so if I bang it around, my laptop will be protected and safe. If you're interested in the pattern. It is located at www.knitty.com. It's a really simple, and quick project to knit.

Funk Nation

Funk, a word used to describe "to shrink from undertaking or facing." It can also be used to describe “a strong offensive smell." To my understanding, this just about covers all the feeling I associate with being in a Funk. It simply stinks. I am happy to say, I am determine to get out of this state of emotions and tackle some long over due projects. Like this for example. A sweater I started last year for my son. I used Knit and Picks, Wool of the Andes. In a color called Wheat. It was suppose to be in one color. However, once I began knitting for the sleeves. I discover, I did not have enough yarn to complete the sleeves, and to my dismay. Knit Picks, no longer sold this dye. My solution was to find a contrasting color, and what could be better then "Chocolate”.

Kalina's Visit

Image
Here she is, Armando's little granddaughter Kalina. She's so cute. He just wants to hold her all day long. I am afraid she's going to get spoiled with grandpa. A new baby, so you know what that means... Lots of knitting, especially for little girls. So how do you feel about lavender Kalina?

A picture of what the shawl I am knitting will look like.It's taking over one year to complete. I don't know why, but I just could not get my mojo right when I was knitting this one. I love knitting with Koigu PPPM yarn and it's colors are so pretty. However, the pattern was not easy to read. Hope everyone is having a great 4th of July. I would like to give a shout out to the VELAZQUEZ family who are having their first family reunion today in Florida. There's nothing like family getting together and having a great time reminiscing about the good old days...

What's up Girlfriend!

I am so excited to have found one of my best friends in life. She came into my life during a time when I really needed a friend. As we got older, we lost touch, but thanks to myspace, we've connected again. I have a feeling that nothing is going to be the same again. We have so much catching up to do. Besitos chica!!!

Sock it to me

It's a brand new day and..............I'm feeling good!

Well hello everyone in blog world. It's been such a long time since I've last posted. Let's just say Decemeber was a month of ending. Many things in my world and for those in my families' world had ended in December. Now in June, things are starting to really heat up and bloom. For one thing, today I am a year older, and I have to admit, I am feeling really good. Took the day off from work, just to do some thing special for myself. Pedicure, shop for some new cloth, and maybe some nice summer shoes. Packing up and heading to the beach for the weekend with my favorite people in the world. Yeah life is good.

Hey did you think I forgot the knitting, spinning and any other fiber related hobbies? Heck no, I am still spinning, trying to polish off some gray shetland wool. Still have two shawls, one sweater, and two pair of socks to complete. I've also started a bag to hold my laptop. It's felted and I love…

Quick Note

It's been a while since my last post. All is well in the knitting department. Mostly trying to catch up with unfinish projects. For example, I have a baby blanket for a baby in May, a sweater for my son, and several other small items. Mostly getting ready for family visit in March. I am also excited to teach my sister how to knit. Now we can chat about our projects and give each other tips. Well with that said, I leave you with a pair of socks I've completed for a Knit along. If anyone is interested on the pattern, which I can not recall the name right now, I'll be happy to posted it. It's free on the net. Yarn used was Opal.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope this year will bring great beginning for all. Happy Knitting
