Wow I can't believe it has already been a month since I last posted so much for that once a week thing huh. I have been knitting like crazy though so hopefully that evens out with the lack of posting. Since I last posted I finished 3 pairs of socks & a hat. I have been wanting to cast on everything as of late but I am trying not to overwhelm myself with a ton of projects. So on with the knitting good.

I will post a picture of where I am on both pairs of socks. Also I am making Falafel from scratch tonight for dinner I will talk about that in the next post & share the recipe. Happy Knitting.


It's Olympics Time !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know alot of people have decided to not watch the Olympics this year due to all of the controversy that is going on in Russia. Let me preface this by post by telling you why I am watching the Olympics. I am a lover of all things sports (granted there are some I don't watch) but nonetheless I love sports & that is why I am watching the Olympics this year.

I am watching to root for the athletes who have sacrificed time away from their families to pursue something that has brought them great joy. To watch them do sports I could or would never do ( I HATE snow with a passion). My favorite Winter events are Hockey, Nordic Combine & Curling. I have an unhealthy love for Curling lol. But anyways that is why I am watching the Winter Olympics. Plus did you see some of he awesome knitwear that was on display in the walk of Nations?  Are you watching the Olympics ?

As we knitters know when the Olympics hit so doesn't the Ravellnic games. This year my challenge is to complete 2 pairs of socks & maybe a hat during the games. I have one of the socks started from opening ceremonies.

The yarn I am using for that is Unique Sheep Pashmi in the Himalaya Colorway

The yarn I am using is Into The Whirled Tchula Sock in the End of Innocence Colorway

As for a hat pattern I have nothing picked out yet probably nothing to detailed. If you are participating in the Ravellnic game or heck even if you aren't what are you knitting ?


February Already ???

I woke up to the realization that today was indeed February 1st. How did we get here so fast ? Honestly didn't we just celebrate New Years ? Today starts 30 days of juicing for me. Which means I will have one drink a day that is juiced this isn't a cleansing or anything just getting more fruits & veggies in. I will also still be having smoothies (since you can't juice bananas lol). Today I had 2 apples with a 1/2 cup each of blackberries, raspberries & grapes mixed in & man it was good. I need to try spinach & things like that to get a variety going so I don't get bored.

On the knitting front I have only finished 2 things so far this year a pair of socks & a hat. I am still working on my scrap blanket & I have also casted on a shawl but who knows if that will stay on the needles or what.  I also frogged 2 of the 3 UFO's I had going I really want to finish the last one I need to check to see where I am in the pattern. I am ready for the Ravellnic Games to start I have my yarn & projects decided on. My challenge to myself is to see if I can finish 2 pairs of socks one cabled & one vanilla during the games. I may also try to get a hat in there too. (See I told you crazy). Do you plan on participating in the games if so what are your plans ??
