Knitting Retired for now.

Well it has been a long time since I have done any knitting. In fact I gave the majority of my stash to a friend who has taken up kitting and while my wife has been asking me to make her a hat for the past three years I seem to be distracted by so many other things I just have given up.

I will keep this blog in place as a fun reference to look back on and also as a place to continue my knitting posts should I pick it up again.

If its one thing I have learned is never to count a hobby out as you just never know years later if you might pick it back up then its great fun to look back on these posts.

So for now my knitting is officially on hold...

All organized!

I finally had some time this afternoon to sort out a giant box of yarn I've been wanting to go through!

It felt awesome to get it all put safely into ziplock bags and into their final spots on my yarn shelves :)

Now if I can budget my time and get some projects wrapped up so I can buckle down on some Christmas knitting!!!!

I'm Alive!

Really everyone I am still alive and knitting away!

I have been soooo busy with work this past month I just have not had time to blog, mostly out of town mon-fri with races on the weekend.

I have not even had time to drop in to my LYS for any knitting fun, I hope to stop in fri or sat this week and catch up as my out of town madness finally seems to be about finished for a while.

Vacation Knitting!

I'm on vacation this week with a wonderful ToDo list in my pocket!

I have managed to complete Said's Hat today!! I really hope he likes it. I've been working on it a little bit here and there and has taken a little longer than expected.

The original pattern called for it to be more of a beanie style but I've already made a few of those so I made this one a few inches longer to give it a little bit of a floppy style :)

Hey maybe I'll be a designer hahahhha

I am off to Kings Island tomorrow and have my GoKnit bag ready to attach to my belt and get some knitting done while waiting in those hour or more long roller coaster lines for a 2 minute ride!! KIP FTW!! I'm still deciding what project to take. One good thing about this trip is I wont be driving and will have a few hours of knitting time there as well!

All in all it looks like this vacation will be spent relaxing and knitting something I can sure use.

Waiting in line, no problem

Getting a few rounds in while waiting in line for a table at brunch today!

I just love the GoKnit bags! They are just perfect for a small project, like My Sockhead Hat I'm working on. Standing in line doesn't bother me anymore, I just use the time to get a few rounds in!

I know what Im going to be doing in line at Kings Island while waiting for the roller coasters this summer!! I really used to hate standing in line for an hour for a two minute ride but now I'm just thinking about all the knitting time I'm going to have woohoo!!

These bags come in three sizes small, medium and large so you can find the right bag for almost any project. I really like them as I got tired of working out of ziplock bags, lol!

Squeeze in..

When I got to the LYS today the table was full! Luckily my friend Susie let me squeeze in beside her and pull out my knitting!

After being out of town all week it was just wonderful to walk into my favorite LYS Broad Ripple Knits and be greeted with all things fiber and beyond, in fact the first thing I got hit with was a few theories about the season finale of The Killing! Arggg what a crazy show that was, Im feeling very unfulfilled with that one but strangely cant wait for season two!!!

I was able to get started on the decreasing phase of Said's Hat! I might just finish that this weekend if I can settle down a bit. They were also right in the middle of a super summer sale 30-50% off summer yarns!! I only picked up one item but its a small notion case I've been waiting for and was very happy to get.

Lots to do before I head out of town again next week so I'm going to scram for now, but I am looking forward to about 5 hours uninterrupted knitting time each way to detroit and back!!
