It's been awhile since I have blogged.
As my kiddos are getting older, I find that they are monopolizing more of the computer time(as well as my limited free time), so it's harder for me to find time to sit and write a post. My kids are in martial arts/crossfit class three nights per week and I've found that lends itself to some knitting time without the guilt--since I am a captive audience there for an hour and a half.
I have been loving the Simple Skyp sock pattern and decided to knit a pair of socks for everyone in my family. So far I have finished Diva's, Rage's, and mine. I'm working on DH's pair during class time now.
Mine(knitted with Twisted Fiber Art Tasty in the Maple colorway):
Diva's(knitted with Three Irish Girls Adorn sock in the Rhiannon colorway):
Rage's(knitted with Socks That Rock Lightweight in the Dragon Dance colorway):
I have finished a couple of other things but I'll save that for a later post--just socks today :)
What else is on my mind?
--In the last 6 months or so, I have completely lost my cross stitching mojo. I'm hoping that comes back with spring time--Lord knows I have enough to work on.
--I started a new workout program last week--Cathe Friedrich's Xtrain--I am sore everywhere but I love it. My workouts were feeling stale to me and I needed something to shake it up so I decided to go back to Cathe. It's interesting to me how cyclical that is. I had been doing Beachbody workouts since 2008 very consistently(P90X, Insanity, Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, and Chalean Extreme) prior to that I had been doing Cathe's workouts(too many to list). I love switching things up for a new challenge.
--Little Diva is not so little anymore. . .she turned 13 over the weekend! I can't believe I have a teenager!
--I am addicted to Pinterest--I love wasting time there ;)
--I really, really would love to make a quilt this year. . .just trying to find the time, motivation, and the guts to take that leap.
--In Fall 2012, I joined my first ever yarn club. It was with Twisted Fiber Art and I LOVED it. I'm doing Spring 2013 as well. . .can't wait for my first package later this month.
--I can now add Thirty One bags to my Vera Bradley bag addiction.
I think that's about it for now. Happy crafting everyone!
