Twilight Saga

August 28, 2008

I haven’t knit in the last day or so, because I am really into reading Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga.  She currently has four books in series which include, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.  I finished New Moon yesterday, and am just starting Eclipse.  I am enjoying these books.  They are written for a young adult audience, but I have never been one to judge a book based on the intended reader.  I am in love with Harry Potter, and those are children’s books.  Anywho, These books are about teenage girl by the name of Bella who falls in love with a vampire named Edward.  It is portrayed as a Romeo and Juliet type romance in the sense that Edward is determined to keep Bella moral therefore, causing all sorts of problems.  I am a huge Anne Rice, and these books are on an entirely different level.  I don’t mean that negativiely it’s just that Anne Rice is a literary master.  Meyer’s vampries are a new take on the timeless mythical beings.


Because Mom will find out eventually :)

I was reading through Jaci’s blog Confessions of a Knitting Diva, and she got the cutest sheep tatoo.  I haven’t posted my sheep tatoo, because I wasn’t ready to tell my mom yet.  I got a tatoo of a black sheep on my back quite a few monts back.  It is totally healed at this point obviously.  I love it!  I know you will be disappointed mom, but try to understand this means a great deal to me.

Waking Up

August 25, 2008

On Saturday August 16, 2008 My father passed away after his battle with cancer.  His obituary can be read here.  This has been a very sad time for my family and me.  I just can’t even organize it into to words just yet.

Deep breath,  I am going to continue to blog once again.  I know I have promised it before, but I actually have allowed knitting to once again become a part of my life.  I have a FO! It’s a bit past my goal but I finished it.

I really love this sweater alot!  It feels so comfy.  I knit it out of Cascade 220 and Rowan Tapestry.  I used a 32″ size 9 Circular needle, and size 9 DPNs.  It really was a quick easy going knit.  I had a little bit of trouble picking up the pouch stiches, but Cindy from Yellow Dog helped me through it.

I am currently working on Thermal from Knitty.  I have one and a half sleeves completed.  I am in love with this sweater. The waffle stitch is very easy to memorize and the Knitpicks gloss yarn feels so good in my hands.
