Dear Kureyon…

I love you

Ok…so I admitt to having a pretty bad addiction for Noro Kureyon. I mean, have you seen the stuff? Have you seen it knit up? It’s just beautiful. I have a tendency to buy it whenever I can get my hands on it during a sale. As you can see, my stash is becoming a wee bit out of control. I don’t think I want to get help for my “problem” (shhhh don’t tell my husband lol). I guess this picture will explain my sad obsession:

Is that sad or what? Does anyone know of cool Kureyon patterns? Please let me know! I love the fact that I can turn that to this:


in no time! Ok, ok. I’m done with the Noro babble. On to other things….

Special thanks to my Pinku flower swap partner. Check it out.

Isn’t it purrrrdy? I absolutely love it. It is a pin that doubles as a hair piece. Thanks!!!

Treo Pics

I absolutely loooove the last one. That day was perfect. My family and I were on our way upstate NY to go shopping. There’s nothing like being with family on a beautiful day!

More on knitting news next time.

I came across this site to only discover that I have the same knitting skills as a designer by the name of Clare Tough, who is making a killer profit off of it. Look at this:

This piece may put a $2000 whole in your pocket. Why? I wish I could tell you. I have to admit, I do like the shoes.

Hell! Why didn’t I think of this??? I have to say, these items are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over priced but who am I to knock her. If she can pull it off, then she’s the man! I think I’m going to have to explore my knitting abilities and hopefully pull in a few $’s myself one day. Wish me luck!

TREO PICS

This will be a new part of each post. It’s a few pics I randomly take with my Treo phone. I might as well put it to good use! Have a look (click thumbnails for a closer luck):

Isn’t my [step]daughter a cutie?

The progress on my cousin’s baby sweater so far:

That’s all for now folks!
