packing+knitting=????

Hello everyone!!!

I hope you guys have had a great couple of weeks! I have been incredibly busy with lots of packing and knitting (with school and work on the side). I am moving on Wednesday of next week, so I have plenty of things to do, but of course I couldn't help myself and I have been indulging on some knitting! I bought a few sets of circular needles from knitpicks as well as some sock yarn to get me started on learning how to knit in a round. I found that I have a really hard time with dpns, and the circular needles are perfect for me! I learned the magic loop method and I have been very pleased with the results of my knitting. I may end up having to add "and knitting"to my blog name because of how much fun I am having! My main project is a golf cozy with knitpicks tonal sock yarn in the color kindling. It has been so fun to get to the point of where I am at right now with the project! I hope that I can finish this project by Wednesday! :D


I bought quite a few skeins of sock yarn from knitpicks the same day I bought the kindling yarn, and I can't wait to make something wonderful! More than likely socks! :D


I love how bright and magical the colors are!

Well, I have half of the apartment to still pack, so it is probably time for me to get to work. Plus, I'm hungry :D

Have a great day everyone!

P.S. Tuesday is day 90 for p90x! Check in for results! :D

Oooh! Such pretty colours! that purple is especially singing to me. I think it's great that you've taken up knitting. I think there's space for both in everyone's life. Can you tell I'm leaning towards finding out what else my hook can do besides picking up dropped stitches...? ;-)

The purple is amazing and even prettier in person :) Thank you! I have always wanted to learn how to knit, and it is so nice to be able to do something I once envied everyone else who had the talent to knit. I agree :) I can tell! I'm sure you would be great at crocheting! I can't wait to see what creations you make with your hook and needles :D
