Hooray for Babies!!

Fabulous news - I found out yesterday that my BF from high school, Cyn is preggers! And she told me right away, so I have NINE WHOLE MONTHS to knit stuff for her.... Sad as it is, the items in the queue for my coworker's baby just aren't as exciting anymore.

I did find my Easy Knitting, so the sheep blanket is back in line - though now I think I need to make two!

And a sweater - if it turns out to be a girl, so this one will save for later in the pregnancy

And the cutest baby boots ever - Candy Jensen's baby uggs

These may stay in the permanent rotation forever - according to those who know (the studs on the Craftster boards) they're nice and easy to do. Darling and easy? Suddenly my favorite ever!

Okay this one is soooo not right

I am definitely not a guru... somedays I have trouble feeling qualified to be a newbie.

Knitting Guru
You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.

What kind of yarn are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

My name is Lisa and I'm a yarnaholic

The worst (and best) part of becoming a knitter is that I crave new yarn hits everyday.... it's become an addiction. I've been working on the same darn tank top for two months now, and all I want to do is shop for more yarn for unspecified projects. The DH smiles at me indulgently, but only because he doesn't realize the depths of my addiction - there are rubbermaid storage totes stacked in my closed (hidden behind the long pants) full of stash. And bags in the trunk and under the seat of my car.

I try to be serene - maybe go in and finger my current stash, but all along I'm itching for another infusion of springy, fuzzy, cuddly yarn. I visit Elann and KnitPicks and JimmyBeans daily, but try to avoid pulling up to the curb and beckoning the dealers over... every day I look at the yarns on sale, and try to justify another 10 skeins. After all, I am really craving a fluffy mohair-y yarn. (To do what with - no clue.) And I need a nice merino, and maybe a cashmere - they're so practical. My cabled poncho is originally of cashmere, but I think the thing calls for like 18 balls. Triple-digit ponchos are a no-no unless I suddenly win the lottery or get called to Hollywood.

Ah well. My big project now is to get the darn digital camera working so I can post pictures to enliven this blog. Also, sad because my blog pet reset itself to 0, and I can't gauge what overwhelming % of the world is ignoring my blog.
