Getting Started

My husband and friends are relatively tired of hearing me talk about my insane obsession with all things knitted...and exactly how many projects I have on the needles right I thought I would start a blog...and randomly talk to myself and others :) I can link this to Ravlery I guess and others who share my insanity can relate.

I've been knitting for 2 years come August. I learned when my son was about 6 months old...then when I was pregnant with my daughter I was on semi-bedrest and needed something to keep me I picked up the pace on knitting....that was September. My love for knitting has really taken off since then. I've learned so much...self taught and I took a class at the lys.

Currently I have an obsession with Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket...and many versions of I'm heading down that path. I have also found many cutsie sweater/jacket patterns that I am planning to work on for my kids for next winter.

My stash is growing....I've begun to buy yarn thinking that I will find something to make with it.... ohhhh....what a slippery slope!
