Miss Char Char in her sweater - My Sweetie Girl 

I know I promised to share pics of some of my work but I  wasn’t yet able to transfer the pics onto here.  I was at hospital all nite with 16 yr old daughter.  She was in such pain.   They took a CAT and an ovarian cyst was found.  I have to now make sure she is checked out and further investigate all of this.   Thank goodness I have my knitting to take along while waiting.  I would be soooo bored.  I think I have finally figured out this picture stuff – got a picture in my blog.  As you can see I have used my girlie Charlie who is 3 yrs old.  She is sitting next to me xmas day with her babydoll santa brought her.  Cute huh?  As you can see I am an avid animal lover.   I am gonna publish this now and see if it comes up ok to view…..Whewwww…..  This was tedious.. hehe

Now I can get my projects together and share with you all when I am working on them.  Makes me feel like a member of a big family now!

Have a great Wednesday evening…..  I think I shall go and knit some…….

 

Colinette yarn project……….

April 15, 2008

Well, my first blog and I am luvin it!  I have been reading wonderful posts that are done by talented knitters and I wanted to share also on the web.  I have no clue how this will go but I sure will enjoy doing it.  I am working as a nurse currently so will do this in my off  hours when I am not working but knitting. 

I am working on a short sleeved sweater and have the back almost done.  It is a Colinette yarn that is 100% wool, handspun and hand dyed.  I am working on size 12 mm needles.  The yarn comes from Wales- the tag says. It is so neat as it is a bulky yarn twist and goes very very thin.   I have had this wool for 6 years and decided it was time to make up the sweater design.  I will post pics on here when I learn how to get them on.  I am just experimenting at this point.  

I am currently a frequent flyer on www.KnittingDaily.com which is hosted by Interweave Knits and enjoying every  minute.  Come on over and see what all the fun is about.

Guess I had better get some knitting done now…………..
