WIP’s and Chains

I have many WIP’s to discuss this week. I have a set of market bags that I’m trying to work on for the summer. I’m hoping to get a bicycle at some point soon and I’ll go to the farmers market to get fresh fruits and such. I’m really excited. I’m using Caron Cotton Cakes. They came out with a few new colorways so while I was in Bismarck a few weeks ago for training I bought some.

I’m also working on a squared waffle stitch afghan for myself. It’s a very warm stitch and I absolutely love the way it’s coming together. For that project I’m using Caron Big Cakes in the Boysenberry colorway. I’ll be using 8 to 10 cakes in total. This is probably my favorite project to date. I love these colors.

It’s no secret that I’m 100% in love with the Caron Cakes line of yarn. I find the colors very diverse and the texture is so soft. I hope to continue to use them.

I still try and do some charity work making hats for babies and so forth. Even with my life being a little crazy lately I know that I wouldn’t be happy if I wasn’t crocheting or knitting some project.

With all this being said, life is hard sometimes. But, with some yarn and a little imagination you can bring some beauty to an otherwise ugly situation.

Happy Knitting!

Long Time…

I took a very long break from this blog. I had many things on my mind and needed some time to work on things.

Mother’s day passed on the 13th and the Monday before was the two year anniversary of my mom’s passing. In that time I was thinking more about what would make my mom proud and that would mean doing what makes me happy so here I am back at it.

I’m revamping this blog to make it more streamlined with my work schedule. Speaking of I’m still working as a phlebotomist, however, I’m also working on an ambulance crew down here so I’m back to working two jobs.

I’ll also be going back to school for an accounting degree. I eventually want to start a business selling yarn and all things knitting and crochet. I figured that this would be a good way to start.

The new set up is as follows.

Saturdays- Stories (Things I find online that would be interesting reads)
Wednesdays- WIP’s (I’ll discuss┬ámy progress on my projects)
Mondays- Moments (Thoughts I have about things going on in my life)

I’m very excited to get back to my crazy, busy, hectic life. I love staying busy with work and life. Many things are changing around here and I’m glad they are working out for the best!

Happy Knitting!

Mother’s Day

I had to take a break from blogging for a bit. The last month or so has been really difficult on me. I miss my mother so much and over the last few weeks it’s been especially painful.

My mom passed away the day before mother’s day last year. So all of this is a little overwhelming to me.

I managed to get a couple weeks off of work to handle my emotions and come back with a fresh start. That being said, today is the last day of my vacation and tomorrow I go back to work.

But, first let me go over some changes that I made during my vacation. I got my lip pierced. I’d need wanting it for a while and decided that while I’m on vacation I’d get it done so it’s healed a little bit before I have to go back to work. I got a new tattoo on my forearm. It’s wilting flowers. It’s very sketch line work and water color. It’s beautiful. And the last change that I made is dying my hair. It’s a super dark burgundy color. It almost looks black until I step into sunlight then BAM purply red. It will lighten up quite a bit with a few washings.

I didn’t get much work done with any of my WIP’s. So. That’s a bummer. But I am excited to get back to work. It will be nice to get a fresh start.
