knit at nite

some entries about knitting and family to keep myself motivated at projects and the daily grin, i mean grind.


hurry up and knit

i'm working on jacksonorlilly's tiny little sweater. so tiny, yet i don't seem to be making much headway. everything else is on hold until i wrap this one up.

i do have a couple of other gift items i would still like to try and make; mom's mitts, another hat for another niece. that means in the mood is on hold until after the holidays. just as well, it will take a little while to get the yarn. i have several leads to follow toward the procurement of said yarn, thanks rebecca and secret pal for your support in this quest.

also, i measured hubby's feet for wendy's toe up sock pattern (spiii, i dipped into the pattern a day calendar for this one - couldn't wait). he seemed to like that i was measuring his feet. there were no comments made about knitting something he could easily buy, there were no remarks about how 'weird' it is that i am 'so into' knitting. the fly fishing nut cheerfully stuck his feet out and prattled on about the one foot bigger than the other phenomenon. it almost makes me want to get cracking on that project... in time for the holidays? this is the first and last year i plan to make gifts. it's too deadline-y for me. i don't want my knitting to become part of a to do list. i want to keep it on the 'when everything else is done or can wait' list.

overheard being called down the stairs by the preschooler, "mom, my poop is too big for the toilet..."
is your day this glamorous?

Corine, you can order the Lara from the Knitting Garden. The cost is $9 per skein and it will take 2-3 weeks to arrive. the website is: and the owner's name is Elizabeth. Good luck with it!
If that doesn't work, I've found lots of lovely furry yarns made by Trendsettter and Berrocco at my LYS. Would be happy to pass along the yarn names etc.
