It's Time to Shop

I just found out that Michaels is having a huge sale on yarn this week. Up to 55% off their entire yarn stock. This is too exciting! It just so happens I need yarn for several crochet blankets I'm in the process of making. But who am I kidding, even I didn't need yarn for these projects, I'd find a reason to justify spending money on yarn when there's a sale of this magnitude. Time to get dressed and get my lazy bum to Michaels. There's a strange burning sensation in my pocket....oh, it's my debit card. Let the spending begin!!!!

It's Been a Long Time, Been a Long Time

There was a time when I didn't know if I would ever return to this blog. There was a time when much to my dismay, I lost interest in knitting. Thankfully, here I am, blogging and knitting again. It's been a rough few years to say the least.  As much as I didn't think I would, I made it through and am back with a vengeance. It feels good to feel the love for the craft fill my soul again. I'd started to forget how much knitting is a cure all for anything that ails you. I'm so grateful to have my passion again. So in honour of my renewed love for wooly goodness, here are a few pics of what I'm currently working on and some of my recently finished projects. It's so good to be back.
