So a miracle happened today... as I was walking hands full of Christmas goodies and wine glasses I bumped right smack into a childhood memory. Pirouettes!!!!! Couldn't you JUST die?? I almost dropped everything in my hands at my disbelief. Of course they're "Limited Edition" and they're also called "Petite" Pirouettes but they're the same … Continue reading Target… of all places!
So it finally has happened, a moment of "sh#t i have to rip it ALL out". I was knitting myself a shawl/poncho. It was a super simple pattern actually but I guess I didn't figure it out as well as I should have since one side of the poncho is waaaay longer than the other. … Continue reading Frog You

Is it a bad thing when all I can do is think about what I'm knitting? or that I want to buy more and more yarn? I thought this Honeymoon stage was supposed to end like weeks ago. But all the holiday knitting I'm doing is only getting me more excited rather than run down. … Continue reading Focus!

weren't attached I swear I would loose it. One of the things that I truly HATE about myself is that I tend to lose things. In college I lost my stupid ID card about 10 times... each time I would swear and curse and tear things apart searching for it. I would get so pissed … Continue reading If my head
Mitten # 2 is well on it's way. I just realized I knitted it at a bigger gauge, but I think they're comfy just the same. I will be able to use them this weekend and once they're done I can move on to other knits 🙂 Is it a problem that when I'm at … Continue reading And then there were Two

All my girlfriends graceously delt with me knitting away and calling it my "MiTTin"(hard T sound) all day. It's partner is already on the needles and I hope to have a full pair a rockin' by Wednesday!! … Continue reading Cold Hands Warm Heart
There's something so sweet about spending your weekend doing nothing. Sweet sweet nothing. Jim and I managed to do just that this weekend and it was fabulous. Friday night I had an extended stay at schoo, not to mention one of the more rediculous days - I was contstantly stating to numerous people that, "If … Continue reading Detox is Good
