Hm...actually it's 1:30 in the morning. Either way. Anyhow, how blasphemous would it be to start knitting wedding stuff when you aren't even engaged? Probably terrible. Jinx-worthy. Maybe like a whole new sweater curse?

See, lately I've been thinking that the next time I get married (and I do hope to one day) I would like to wear a mainly knitted wardrobe. There is a dress and everything. The thing is, I'd worry about not getting everything done in time. Couldn't I just get a head start? Then when the day comes around, everything will be prepared! Less to stress over. Haha. Maybe I should just go to bed, hm?

In knitting news, I have finished the Tinky Winky baby sweater for my friend's nephew...sorta. It needs to be blocked, buttons sewn on. That's all. Also, Kyrannosaurus Rex is done, save for the details. Can you tell that I'm really just needing something simple? Knitting has been very aggravating lately, I need a simple, cathartic pattern. Somehow it all ends up being more complicated than it should be. The money flow here has been really tight. Beau and I aren't working. This leads to excess stress for me, which causes my body to revolt (it reacts poorly to stressful situations), this in turn worsens the stress. It's a vicious cycle. Last week I finished spinning 2oz of merino top in one sitting. Beau said I was a spinnin' fool! Then I plied it Sunday. It turned out nicely, can't wait to use it for Diversify. That should be a simple, straightforward knit.

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!
