Socks on Circulars

OMGoodness, I am so happy!
I have found that I love making socks. Recently I learned how to knit socks using magic loop....soooo much better than dpn's! About the same time, I started really wanting to learn how to do two socks on two circulars. I researched to find which book has the best reviews & I found....


I found it at Hobby Lobby, I had a 40% off internet coupon & my wonderful hubby bought it for me....woo-hooo! I am so excited!!! Well....Off to learn to knit socks on two circulars!

Continental Knitting

I had intended on trying to write faithfully every day....apparently that's not gonna happen! Oh well, maybe I should just commit to writing when I can, lol. Any-who...I am pretty excited right now. My family is together & happy, our homeschool year is going great so far & I have learned Continental Style knitting...wooo-hoo! I don't know why that was such a big deal to me, other than that I am so obsessed with knitting that I want to learn every aspect of it....or maybe it's that I can't stand the thought of something beating me...hmmmm. Ok, I have tried to learn this style of knitting before, but just could not for the life of me get the hang of it! Then, I came across this link to this amazing speed knitter, and finally it clicked!!! Woo-hoo...I was inspired & I got it! Purling continental was kicking my butt though, so once I got the knitting down I was on a hunt for a video that would inspire me with purling as well. I found this one & this one on YouTube & wooo-hooo, by georgies, I got it!! It still isn't as easy as the english style knitting, but it has clicked, I can do it, & practice makes perfect! Actually, I am really enjoying knitting (and purling) continental style, and that is a real shock for me.

Ok, I'm off to school the littles & cuddle the kitteh.

A blogging I will go...

Well, here it is...I am blogging.
I don't know that anyone would REALLY want to hear a thing I have to say, but I'm gonna do it anyway! I am sure there will be alot of rambling about nothing....but that is how I talk too, lol.
Any-who...if you happened upon my blog & actually read it, I hope that you enjoy it. Maybe you might even get a chuckle...who knows!
