full of oops

My blogging is getting really spaced out...oops!

I'd like to say it's because school is getting hectic (now that I'm so close to graduating!), or that I'm super busy at church all the time but it isn't and I'm not. Considering I have two writing intensive classes and a science, my work load is pretty easy, and I haven't gotten behind on anything which is just crazy for me, ha.

Church activities do keep me busy but not in an insane way. Our college group is going through a growth spurt, but I don't mean in the size kind of way. We've all grown so close together. Such a great way to grow in a church :) Even though I'm graduating in less than two months I plan to stay in the group until next December when David graduates (hopefully!!)

The rest of my life is filled with far too many Disney tv shows, food network competitions and whatever else David makes me watch. Don't get me wrong, these shows have their advantages. There are NO skanky girl commercials on late at night on Disney and the content and language is always clean. Though my humor level and knack for intelligent conversation maybe lowering, I find it refreshing to not have my mind bombarded with the level of sex, language, and violence that society has deemed normal for prime time television. When I do watch adult shows it's usually just the office, haha.

I say all this to then say, I'm still knitting! I just have this problem lately of starting a new project before I finish another one, so I never have pictures to share of finished projects. Soon I will be making my Christmas knitting list and knitting like a crazy grandma up until December 24 at midnight I'm sure.

My biggest project is that blanket I mentioned a few weeks ago. All I have is this pic from my iphone to show you, but I think it gets across how awesome it is. It's super soft too, I love it.

I'm almost done with a gift for some special friends and will post pics when they get to their new homes, hopefully sooner than later. I might also be doing a little halloween accessory knitting this weekend, we'll see.

This post was random and longer than I planned, oops!


  1. Hey. I've actually been following your blog a long while. You're listed under "Blogs I Heart" on my favorites list, and I've never been compelled to comment, but I definitely hear what you're saying about starting a project before you finish one. I actually crochet, so most the time I ooh and aah over your knitting, think about a way to convert it to crochet (or something equally adorable) and give up. Either way, just wanted to say hi, and I'm kind of curious as to how you make your christmas knitting list. I started my christmas crochet list in like, September, and have been working my fingers to the bone. Right now, I'm working on a blanket called "Ocean Waves" that doesn't look EXACTLY like the blanket you showed here, but that is kind of the same concept(?) Maybe I'll post pictures once I figure out how to use blogspot.

  2. How did you like this afghan? I've never made an afghan because it's seems like a HUGE project to commit to. I'm much more into the smaller projects. But I was looking at this pattern and thinking about making it. Hmmm...we'll see!
