Bliss in Smoke

Background info:

MIL has been in town since last is I need to say more?
Actually she is pretty nice, and loves lil R like there is no tomorrow, but alas it sucks to have someone there in a tiny house while you whip out the girls and pump if you know what I mean. Just the image you wanted today, I am sure.

Now to the story:

Well this weekend B (aka DH) is going to Boulder to see a show at Red Rocks and to check out the house. I was suppose to go with him, but it would of been a riddle with my parents coming up to watch bruiser so I said F' it. Just told him to go alone. Well last night he asks (at least he was a smart man and asked me off to the side alone first), "So do you want me to ask my mom to stay over the weekend to help you out with lil' R?" Well I would like to relax, I would like to sleep in my bed vs. the couch, I would like to leave my underwear on the floor (well for a few minutes anyways), I would like to not feel uncomfortable, but alas I will not. Do not get me wrong she is nice, but I just cannot stand ANYONE around me for that long! There is no place to escape and it is not like I can just say, "Later I'm leaving have fun sitting at the house lady!"
Hopefully she will not ask me how to make artichokes again...I mean really - they were from Trader Joes and had directions!!!
So alas...a blissful weekend...up in smoke.

I was Good and you do THIS!?!?!

So I was good and I waited and I waited...

I wait until payday Friday to go to the LYS...

I show up and...


Just my luck! They said closed for a family weekend vacation on the sign. I headed over to Barnes & Noble and picked up the magazine, now I am on the yarn hunt since I could not check out any of them there.

Conclusions on the tops I wanted to do:
  • Well the Lace Crossover Top I am not quite as excited about it now because from looking at the pattern the top of the V does not match up and that kind of bugs me, but I like a couple of sweaters in there more than I thought.
  • The lace article was really good for a newbie like me. The lifeline - after frogging my lace sleeves TWICE down to the beginning I can see how this is KEY!!!!!!!
Off to search for yarns and see about subs!
Have a great weekend everyone.

The Answer Is....

Have I made it over to LYS for the new IK?

Have I ordered the yarn for the shirts?

Have I done ANYTHING but look at boxes and unpack?
As you may have guessed....


Well we have been under a pile of boxes in the Z household. Moving from our home into a temporary house has been a little closer for comfort that I would of imagined. I remember last week B (that would be my dear husband) echoing the phrase, "Oh the move will be easy we have most everything boxed up already" Why is it that husbands underestimate the gravity of the situation? Umm we had NOTHING boxed up except the stuff we did when we listed the house for Sale...yeah he thought the rest would be easy peasy...well he has been there until 3 am every night the past week...ummm yeah. At least it was him that was there late. I was hugging a baby to sleep for 3 hours because his sleep and schedule and everything has been screwed up!
Well after we organize this weekend I am SO.GOING.TO my LYS! I need the break. I will have to bring R (the beautiful son) because I can guarantee B will be sleeping all day.
Well at least when I start packing for Boulder maybe he will NOT call me crazy for needing a gazillion more boxes!
Sorry little knitting content...maybe I will share more!

My First Blog Post for Knitting

So I created this on another blog before I decided to move here. I have been having issues with that blog so I have been backdating and adding points. Here is my first blog post:

My name is Stacy and this is my first post around these parts. I am a mom, wife, jewelry artist and now a knitting fiend. I thought I would use this blog in efforts to document my little progress and steps. I hope to post pics and keep track of all the goodies I make successes and failures.
I will have some personal stuff but this will be mostly about me and my playtime
Well right now I have a noni rather HUGE carpet bag, wonderwool soaker on the sticks and I JUUUST finished my streakers shrug in manos new colorway called caribe. I cannot wait to seam it up and try it on - It is my FIRST sweater! – well it is a shrug, but CLOSE ENOUGH!!!!!
Little more tidbits about me. I currently live in Norcal in temporary housing. DH and I are moving to Boulder here in the next couple of months and we are super excited. My son just turned 9 months today! We have a little white fluffy daughter named Maggie she is the sweetest puppy ever.
Well that is about it!
