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

Royal Dancer from YogaX

I hope all is well with everyone. I only have a few minutes before I have to jet off to class, but I thought that I might share with you a pose that I had Kevin take of me when I was doing YogaX from P90X.

have a great day!

Oh and I bought some sock yarn and circular knitting needles today from knitpicks. I can't wait for them to come in so that I can show you the lovely goodness!

Peach iced tea for me please!

Hello everyone!

I hope that you guys are having a wonderful Monday! I am fully enjoying my Monday night, and I have had a wonderful day so far :) This morning I woke up early to write a paper for one of my classes (I finished it in a couple of hours) and I had a nice big bowl of cereal with some toast. After going to class for a couple of hours, I came home and decided that I have not had me time in a very long time. In fact, lately I have only had time for school, work, and working out...repeat. So as soon as I got home, I made a nice big cup of peach iced tea and I sat down with some yarn and really started working away at my knitting. I haven't quite gotten too far in the potential scarf, but I am very pleased with my results! Here is my rib stitch scarf :) This will be the very first scarf I will have knitted, so I am very excited!

When I figured out the order of the stitches and how it should look, the scarf just started coming along so fast with such instant gratification that my heart started racing! In a good way of course ;) I am excited to finish the scarf, regardless of the fact that it is getting warmer and warmer here. This is going to be an exciting summer full of knitting and crochet with some work on the side.

I hope everyone has a great next couple of days!

P.S. here is a couple of pictures from my campus. I just couldn't help myself. It was just so beautiful outside!

Day 63 Pictures!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for my lack of posts. I feel so bad that I have not been able to post anything new or fun lately. I seem to only have time to work, workout, do homework, and then sleep [repeat everyday]. During this routine of my life, day 60 of p90x has come and passed! I finally had a day where I didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn and run out the door, so Kevin and I were able to take some pictures! Would you like to see???? Yes you do!!
Tada! My day 63 pictures! I lost an additional 2 pounds to make my total 13 pounds so far :D I am so happy with my results!

Until next time everyone!

Have a great day!
