Last minute words occasionally I have something to say other than knitting related blather. Today is one of those days, but in all fairness it can be knitting related. lol

Tomorrow I find out if my baby is a boy or girl! This makes me very happy because now we can really look at the baby names and also call it something other than, well, it. Also, this means I'm a little more than halfway done! Now that's something to really be excited about. And I can make things for the little one too. The first thing on the list is booties! I believe all children should have booties. Though I never got around to making any for Heather or Kyran. Actually, I have every intention on making some for Ky anyway...they'll just have to be big. He hates socks though. :( What a bummer.

Okay, onto the knitting update! I've finished my big fatty Lelah top!! lol It's not really that big, more like long. I still have to sew in the elastic and attach the straps. Starting to wonder if I might not be totally screwed though, I haven't the slightest clue as to how to block acrylic. *sigh* I saw some lovely cotton yarns at the Tail Spinner that I'd just love to make this with. One project at a time though. I'm still planning on making the back-tie version with something cheap. In case I screw it up!

I bought some more of my Zia yarn today. This is my third skein, cross your fingers folks!! I really hope that I don't have to track down a fifth. There is no way I can find the same dye lot, that's for sure.

And, I've crossed over to the dark side!! Err...the sock side that is. hehe I've not knitted socks yet, I though that is such a silly thing to do. However, I've recently come across several patterns that made me drool. Yes, I'm a sock person. Why did I not think of it sooner!? So I grabbed some cute sock yarn today to knit Pom Squad with. It's this lovely purple Cascade Sassy Stripes. Linda says she will show me how to do two socks at once tomorrow. :) I think I might pick up some of those addi turbos.

Alright, off to snooze with the hubby. If I can get him to turn off the video games that is. ;)

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
