Keeping at it!!!

Somewhere at the beginning of this blog I started to try to find 100 things about myself somehow I just don't think that is working out but, I will keep trekking.

43 I love seafood Especially Lobster, and Shrimp.

44 I recently realise I am a drinker and I should see alcohol and leave it.

45 I am not as brave as I thought I was.

46 I love the rain.

47 I am very persistent.

48 I have no problem taking control of a situation.

49 But I am not a control freak.

50 My Favorite scents are Citrus and Vanilla.( not together)

I am really stretching it here to find 100 things maybe I don't know myself as well as i think but; I will keep at this even if it take me a year.

Anniversary !!

Tonight or should I say last night after all it is after 2 in the morning, was my 2nd wedding anniversary, and it was wonderful!!!!!!!. I wish could tell you all about it, but I will not for the simple fact that this blog is rated G, go into much details except to say it was magical, however I will say that the menu was superb the wine was great and dessert was even more awesome. With that said I have to admit that right now I am a little pissed (tipsy) from drinking so many wine coolers.
But all and all it was a great night extremely romantic and intoxicating! (don't mean alcohol).

Well I am positively knackered so this will be very short, off to bed before my DH misses me from under the covers.

I'm SO EXCITED to be a involved in the Pay It Forward Exchange! I found out about it from
here is the info: "It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on.
So here’s how it works. You promise to make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on your blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. You don't know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What they have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
I signed up under Curlyqnj at you would like to sign up under me you can send me a message or leave a message here!

Who will be my fist Angel? Is it you?

Brrrr,Grrrrrr and yummy.......

Brrrrrr.... Lord have mercy why didn't someone tell me it was going to get this cold........I know I said I would rather be cold that hot but I never said freezing I feel like a Popsicle and this is only Autumn. and what is making me very upset is that our central heating is on the fritz !!Darn it!! but the repair guy is coming tomorrow so all should be well again (yeah).

Grrrrrrr.... I am getting rather impatient as i have yet to receive my swap package or any correspondence about it I really hope she is ok as she has seemingly forgotten me. but I am being very optimistic and hoping it's because of the postal strike over the last couple of weeks.

Yummy..... I have recently purchase 9 count them 9 of 100% Uruguayan merino wool skeins for my stash (which by the way is empty right now) also in my purchases is 1 large umbrella swift and 1 small ball winder. I have received them as yet but I will post pics of what they should look like.
2 Skeins Lace in Colorways: lace blue
and 1 undyed lace skein
4 Skeins 3ply in colorway: Passion
and 2 undyed skeins
2 Skeins 1 Ply in colorway: Firebrick
Small Ball Winder

As promised pictures!!!

OK so I finally got my pics uploaded Yeahhhhh!!!
This one is shot of the shaping on the top of the hat which I like so I took a pic of it so there!I guess I am like a mother to every mother their baby is beautiful and special, well to me my hat; yes including the shaping is beautiful and special too.

The finished hat fuzz and all.

Well I mean you can't have a hat with no scarf come on! It make look funny but trust me it feels like i am wearing a cloud around my neck so soft and warm uuummmm!!!

And these obviously are my finished mittens. I mean what else could they be?

And my first effort to knit a sock this was at the beginning, I know it's not much to look at now but Rome wasn't built in a day. More pics of sock to come later, I will keep you guessing for a little while whether or not I got through with the heel I'll give you a hint the answer starts with Y. (laugh)

A bit of everything!!

After spending 7 1/2 hours on a plane, 5 hours in the airport, 3 hours transferring trains,and 30 on the bus I am finally back in the UK. I spent the last 4 weeks; 4 long long weeks home in Barbados, and by golly miss molly was it hot, most days were 32 degrees Celsius, you could have cooked and egg on the pavement. So no more complaining about the weather in the UK especially now it's Autumn and freezing I am not sure how and if I'll make it through the winter but I know now I prefer the cold weather than the hot hot weather in Barbados. I hope I can say that after Winter (laugh). But autumn I love how the color of the leaves change and trees that where completely covered in leaves are now almost naked and this morning I got up and around 6 am and pulled back the curtains and low and behold no sun it was pitch black outside it was a real shock!!!! I mean I know people say the days get shorter as the seasons changes but I was not looking for this; to go from having what it seems to never ending sunlight in summer to only sun from about 8am to about 4 pm is a real shock to the system especially to someone who has never experience this before, but I am looking forward to see what these next two seasons bring.

However I did manage to finish my mittens and work on a hat of my own design and a very fuzzy so fuzzy to the point you can't see the drop stitches I used to make it scarf but it's OK I know their are there. I was really hoping to knit at least one garment for the upcoming cold weather but I just can't seem to find a sweater pattern i think i can finish or one that will accentuate my voluptuous proportions. Any suggestions anyone??? Also I am going to be casting on a throw later today for my legs (cold) cause i don't have any socks long enough to warm them up I seriously need to get my cols weather wardrobe together apart from hat and scarves. But when i go shopping and i see the mass produced made knit wear ables i want to barf there is just no comparison between massed produced knit wear and hand made knit wear! and i make no apologies for saying that. I am sure all Knitters even the absolute novice like me think so as well.
But if i can't have my own knitted wear for this season I'll definitely have it for next season.

Many thanks to my new friend Lisa (who lived in the same country as me for all our lives but it took KH forum for us to meet), for my very first knitting book "Knitting Rules" by The Yarn Harlot Stephanie Pearl-Mcphee. I have read this book 3 things since it was gifted to me- my comments on it "very funny and inspirational a must have for every knitter". And by reading this book I am knitting my 1st sock with an acrylic dk yarn ( just in case i had to frogg) I though knitting sock was going to be sooooo difficult, but with a little (i said little but i mean a lot) of pushing from Lisa i casted on my sock. so far i have ribbed and done the st st and am about to do the heel. So as soon as this sock is completed I'll be going shopping for sock yarn, to make a wearable pair for my DH.

Here is a pic of my finished mittens and the hat and extra fuzzy but very soft and warm Scarf and a pic of the sock when i 1st started.

Ok I can't seem to upload any pics now so pics will come later Sorry.
