Show Some Love to the Brits!

With all the British love going around now that the Olympics have started, I thought it would be fitting to share some British inspired knits. If you don’t already have some knitting in your hands as you cheer Michael Phelps on to winning another gold medal, then maybe one of these quick knits below will get your hands itching to move as you watch those sexy guys playing volleyball.

Welcome To 2012!

Hello Everyone!

I trust that you all had a wonderful holiday season. Now that I’ve recovered from the cotton-head feeling left by too much spiked eggnog and champagne, I think I can finally get back into the swing of things. (By the way, do you want to know a  good cure for a hangover? Sangarias in the morning, baby!)

So, want to know what my New Year’s resolutions are for this year? Well, I decided this year to make more money and meet more cool people while doing what I love. Yup, that’s it. No diet plans or promises to watch my potty mouth. I could never go the whole 40 days of Lent without saying the F-word, so I wasn’t even going to fool myself into thinking I could go 365 days without it.

No, I’ve given up on disillusioning myself with the resolutions of having a body like Cindy, speaking a new language  or sitting poolside somewhere in Italy drinking expensive wine. I’m more than content buying pants with elastic waistbands, impressing my friends by being able to order a Taco Bell Nacho Bell Grande without an english/spanish dictionary and drinking whatever wine was on sale at Costco/Sams Club while watching the Travel Channel.

This year I plan to be more relaxed and have more fun just being me.  And of course, I plan to do way more knitting! Anyone care to join me?

Happy (Knitting) Holidays

I wanted to take this time to thank all of you for your humor, friendship and support this past year. This blog is such a blast and I hope that next year will be even better.

Whatever holidays you celebrate this season, please enjoy yourselves and make sure to at least do one thing that would make your mom blush. (You get extra points if you do something that would make your mom dis-own you for at least 24 hours.)

With the new year comes a list of new excuses to buy more yarn and knit more items. Have fun with the after-Christmas sales, but don’t go too crazy on wools. Remember, summer is just around the corner, so make sure to stock up on some cotton too.

I’ll be busy with my own family traditions this next couple of weeks. I also have the job of keeping my Boy Toy from going overboard with the Christmas cookies and spiced wine.

So, I am wishing all of you fun-filled holidays along with a new year full of yarn and enough time to knit everything  your heart desires. See you all in 2012!!!!
