And Then....

0604100833-00Yeah, still here. Although it seems like most of the (knit)blog world has evaporated. Largely due to the invention of Ravelry, I assume. We can see everything that everyone else is doing in one place now, whyever blog?

Been rather stressed out lately. Nolan, my youngest son, has come to live with me. He was kicked out of daycare, I swear he is a good kid. He just has a lot of energy. This caused me to switch to night classes for my schooling. I just don't feel like I am learning as much at night, so I am going to take a leave from school. Just for 0603102047-02 the summer. It's a bummer though, I have just made some friends. At least one really good one. And now, middle son is coming to live with us too! The house is packed, really not enough room for all of us here as it is. Not that I'm not happy to have them here with me. I have missed the hell outta them!!! To make matters worse...it looks like the man formerly known as Mr. Shad is moving to Texas. :( That will take the kids so far away!!

There has been a little knitting, though not much photography. My only camera is my0420101354-00 phone. Lame! I worked on a little something for my friend. And there is always the selfish knitting. I completed another Lelah. According to the ex, it makes me look fat. :( But I think it's really pretty. Also, very, VERY comfortable. In case you have never made one, this is a really quick knit. You can modify it with straps in any manner you like. I took a poll and all the men I asked said halter style. Came out rather nice I think. Oh, and of course...useless knitting for babies I don't have. Baby sweaters are also simple, satisfying knits. With school and my personal life becoming so overwhelming I really have not been wanting to knit anything too complex. What do you think of the buttons for the blue BSJ? First, second, or third? Haven't been able to make up my mind.

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Broadcast...

Sorry folks. My days have gotten a bit busier. Really though, I find myself almost loathing getting on my computer. Now I will go 2-3 weeks without even touching it. Rarely checking my mail or even Ravelry! Things are still getting done. Just haven't felt the need to update everyone. I've finished a Lelah, although I still need to sew the elastic in and crochet the straps. Also, a beautiful blue BSJ - that needs buttons. Both have already been blocked, ends woven. Truthfully though, school has been eating up most of my time. When I am not at school, I'm studying or going to the gym, going grocery shopping or making dinner. I've been out a few times but haven't made many new friends or really spent time with anyone I'm not related to. Makes a girl stir crazy, however, productive.


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!
