Catching up...

I've been a little absent for a few months. Just not in the mood to blog. Too much going on, not enough sleep.

Now I'm back.

I'm going to attempt to post something every day. Starting with my "I'm thankful for...." every day until Thanksgiving. I know, totally cliche and played out. Buuuut it seems like the thing to do.

So I'm a week late in the posts...but I'll just play catch up.

9 things I am thankful for:

1. My children
2. My dog
3. My parents
4. My Friends
5. My yarn stash
6. My new iPhone
7. My memory foam mattress pad
8. Re-runs of The Big Bang Theory
9. Sons of Anarchy

Tune in tomorrow for more!

The Giftmas knitting begins...

Last year I waited until the last minute to knit christmas gifts and ended up not finishing everything I needed to make. So this year I told myself, Ok self. We are going to start early this year. We will have everything finished with PLENTY of time to spare. I sort of accomplished that.

I started my Giftmas knitting at the end of October. I thought, sure thats enough time.

Then I realized. No...its really not.


Ok. So I have two shawls, four hats, two pairs of mitts and a blanket to knit in 6 weeks.

So far I have one shawl nearly completed, and nothing else started.
