Lost my Mojo......and looking for it.....

Buenos Noches everyone!

What's up with you?

Well it's been a while since I have posted or knitted anything, I don't know I just seem to have lost my "MOJO" Some days I just don't feel like doing anything I know it sounds like I am being lazy, but that's not it honestly:- I can't seem to bring myself to even get up some mornings. and most mornings I awake with a serious migraine and to top it all off I am feeling depressed totally depressed. It's been 4 months count em 4 that I have not been hugged, kissed or felt the touch of my Boobear (pet name for hubby),Yes I have not seen my husband in 4 months some people would say that is no time but for me it seems like eternity and it is really hard if I knew it would have been like this I wouldn't have made the decision to leave him, but it was a sacrifice that had to be made, but that doesn't make it any easier. I am really praying that everything gets sorted out soon so that I can leave this tropical paradise and return to the very unpredictable weather of England. I miss him so much just a little bit more than I miss not having any real yarn to knit with while I am here. I have so many projects I want to get started, but in all seriousness I feel like I have lost an arm or leg I feel helpless without him, someone reading this will have a difference in opinion to mine I believe that my boo is my soul mate and that God created him just for me he is the most caring, gentle, forgiving, loving, kind, considerate, trusting man I have ever known and he makes me feel so special and cared for I feel like the only other person in my life who can love me and care for me as much as he does is the almighty father.And I believe in this world where everything is so materialistic that when we find someone or something special that makes our heart truly beat and causes the blood that flows thro our veins to do a double take we should treasure them or it with our hearts, and I have found two such loves God and my boo bear.

A little knitting talk! What's on your needles?

Well I'll tell you whats on mine "hats" and more "hats". Do I sound excited? well I am "very" this is the fist thing in months that has made me feel so good about myself. I recently became involved in Save The Children Africa Project. And this is my first time knitting for charity and it feels sooooooooo good I feel energized and ready to knit for the fist time in weeks. So far I have 4 hats my target is 20 hats. I hope that those who read my blog will decide to help save these innocent lives, you don't have to live in the UK to be apart of it you just have to be willing. Honestly my choices of yarn to use for these little hats are very limited right now as the only yarn that is sold here is Red Heart Super saver and I think that is way to harsh for a babies head or any apart of them. So I have to try to see if I can get my hands on some worsted or Dk weight yarn to get more hats done I did receive some yarn from a very kind Sandy a little while ago but most of it I can't use because of the color apparently in Africa white symbolises death and most of the yarn she sent me was mostly white are had a white background so I need to find some relatively cheap washable yarn aka (acrylics) online that will ship to Barbados anyone knows of any drop me a line I hope I can find them soon because I am excited to get these hats done.
Here are 3 of the finished ones I have done so far just a basic rolled brim with a I-cord top and a 2x2 rib with a little and I mean little stranding and a basic 1x1 rib with stripes.
Well have a good one later!!!!!
