Wait, Knit, Blog.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “I would never find the time to knit.” This amazes me. Often when I am waiting around, I knit. A woman recently came and sat with me at a basketball game and asked about my knitting. She shared with me a project she had started 6 months ago. It was a baby sweater for her niece. She had only the sleeves left, but the baby was now 14 months and she was making a 12 month size, no way it would fit her. She then said “with all the kids sports I just don’t have the time to knit!” I didn’t understand her point. I was at my daughters game, I was knitting. It was a back to back game, I had lots of time to knit, at least 4 hours of it sitting in the bleachers. I said as much and she shrugged. So I continued to knit. While I watched and cheered on my daughter.

I usually have socks OTN because they are easy to travel with and getting to the end of the needle is quick. Do you knit while you wait? What is the perfect project for you to take along?

We’ve been watching lots of swimming the last couple weeks. Go MVCS Sonblazers! GO BLUE! GO GOLD! Last weekend in Artesia, Johanna beat her personal best time in the 50m Freestyle by 4 seconds! She is the swimmer in bottom lane. Johanna amazes me with her strength and grace. We’re heading to Districts this weekend in Sante Fe.
These socks are in MVCS school colors, mostly knit at swimming. Where I find the time.

Yesterday my husband and I became the proud parents of our third adult child. Happy 18th Birthday to Rick.

So, I have changed my username on Ravelry. It is now Kash. I got tired of looking at my name all ran together and since I think my initials are pretty cool I went with them. It seems kinda weird now though. We’ll see if it makes any difference.
I am rounding the corner home on my swap project. It’s been adding stress to my life in a way I had not expected. I’m worried I used the wrong pattern for the yarn I chose. I’m worried she won’t like the yarn or think I did a good job knittting. What if it doesn’t fit? I am not usually this insecure about things. I’ll be glad when it’s over. I hope she loves everything. I’m trying really hard.

I am almost finished with the Math Nerd socks for ML. I have broken my third Lantern Moon needle and it’s put that pair on hold until I can replace it. It’s the third one, it’s kind of embarrassing really.

We have several inches of snow on the ground today with a nice thick layer of ice under it. Of course since the schools called a snow day last week (when we had almost no snow) they all went today. You only get two snow days figured in the calander and if more are taken school gets out later in the summer and the teachers and other staff hate that. So off to school we go after deicing the van and prying the frozen doors open and almost killing myself on the icy driveway. Happy winter to you, too.

We sent this adult child out to supervise the.. uhm.. Shoveling.

They seemed to enjoy themselves. Good job anyway!

Deadline changes but the work stays the same

We are having senior pictures taken for my son and X-mas pics of all the kids. So I thought it would be great to knit socks for each kid in their “color code.” Originally the date was Nov. 4th but my oldest made plans to go with his girl for the weekend. You know- everything revolves around love. So the new date is Nov. 11th. Which, thankfully, takes my stress level down a notch since I now have another week to finish these socks.
