White Autumn

I bolted out of bed about 2 minutes ago when my hubby said to me Boo it's snowing I said why don't you stop pulling my leg it's not snowing it's not winter yet. So he decided to pull the drapes back and holy cow it was snowing. Snow I couldn't believe it guess you can tell by this reaction that I have never seen it before and you would be right. we don't get snow in the tropics.
If any of you reading this post have children compare my fist reaction to you taking your children to a candy or toy store for the first time- yeah that bad. Be right back going outside to see it first hand.

10 minutes pasted!!!

OK that was awesome cold but awesome!!!!!
Well I am going to curl up here in my window and just enjoy this beautiful thing.

Something from nothing!

After my behaviour in my previous post I didn't expect to be back here so soon but god id good. I was searching through my closet and found some very small pieces of yarn that had been left over from something else. The colors not so sure how their would look together and maybe no one except me would put together but desperate times calls for desperate measures. So I took up my needles and cast on. I casted on 100 sts and just started knitting in the round I did not have clue was I was knitting but I just knew I was knitting and it felt great!.
Being as it was small amounts of each I decided to switch yarns and try to create some sort of harmony with the colors. At this stage I am knitting away and still don't know what it would be if anything at all.
Sometime during the day I had to go to the market. It was really cold so decided to layer up really good but somehow in the process of ensuring my body was not cold I forgot about my head my head was freezing but what could I do I was already in the market so i told myself as soon as i got home i would try to find a nice hat pattern for myself that maybe I could use my scrap yarn for. So I came home and went straight onto the computer and started looking for hat patterns I didn't see anything that would work so I decided to Google head warmers and up came this "snood" was not sure what it was until I saw a picture I was over the moon it was just a tube that acted like a hood and scarf in one and all I had to do was continue adding length to my piece and voila I would have a cover for my head.

So I proved to myself that even when i am down God is always up yo something and thought the colors may not look so hot together as least my head will be warm!

Here's some pics at different intervals in the journey of the SNOOD.

It will be finish by tonite so I'll get to post a FO pic and me wearing it.

AAAHHHh! Yarn Drought

It's a cloudy 9 degrees out today, and I feel just the same. I have not picked up my shiny sticks for days now and it's really messing me up bad. I am in a knitting rut I have no yarn in my stash- zilch, zero, nothing,nada this is the most frustrating experience ever. And right now I am in no position to purchase any new yarn until the end of the month (((((((screaming))))))). So what is a poor girl to do ????

So for these past week or so I have been at home bored to tears with nothing to do except go unto Ravelry and KH and ogle other peoples yarns and FO's ((that's bad )) I'm like a junkie looking for a fix, I think pretty soon I'll go into shock or something. I need to knit ((((((ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh)))))))),

????Could this be my mid life crisis???? Or is this the end for me??

Ok seriously I can't way until this period of withdrawal is over this is so hard so so hard.

HHHHHHHeeeeeeeeeeeeeLLLLLLLLLLLLpppppppppppppppppppp can anyone hear my plea for help?????????

Seven Random Facts-Tag I am it!!

I've been tagged by Knittykitty!

Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog

2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself

3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

And I'm off !!

1. I had a serious crush I mean madly in love, wanted to spend the rest of my life kind of crush on my cousin Ryan as a child. I though he was the cutest, dreamiest boy ever to walk the face of the earth and what made it even worse was the fact that he didn't live in the Caribbean with us so he was like the posh cousin the one who lived in America, and back then that was big deal to live In America. No worries I am over that now and in my defense I was only 8 yrs old.

2. I ate stones when I was a child, little white rocks that tasted like chalk. thank God I am no longer a child.

3. Every night my older cousins and I would run down the gap butt naked and lie in the middle of the road until we saw lights from a vehicle coming and then dash off running. There were no street lights so it would be pitch black.

4. As a child growing up I would eat everything with a knife and fork, no matter what it was i would use a knife and a fork. Cereal, jello, cookies are some of the many food I have great talent in eating with a knife and fork!!!!

5. I am the biggest Michael Jackson Fan ever!!!I don't think there is another person alive who loves MJ more than I do, not even Knittykitty.
Growing up all my t shirts had his picture on them the only music I listened to was his, whenever any of songs came onto the television or radio everyone had to be quit or I would get on real bad, I am serious no messy with you here. Even now I have all his videos and music, the man is a musical genius. Wish I could say the same thing about his choice for a nose but never the less he still is my Favorite Artist.

6. I spent the better part of my teenage years hiding under my sheet in bed reading Mills & Boons and Loveswept romance novels. if my mum had caught me it would have been some serious trouble for me. I really love how in every book the two characters lived happily ever after.

7. You know how some people collect stamps or coins and things of that nature-well I have a very extensive collection of what I deem to be weird knickers seriously when I say weird I mean weird.(their are just for my collection)

I really hope none of the things I have said here make you think I am a bit nutty, I just like to think of my childhood and teenage years as very interesting and never boring.

Here are the 7 persons I have tagged.
Tiffany, Alexandra, Jeanie, Becka, Lu, Christina , Robyn

Thanks for this crazy idea Lisa.
