One More Week!!

Rob comes home in a week! Yay! He will get to stay for a week and a half and then it is off to Denver for more training. I'm so excited I can't stand it, and I'm betting this will be the longest week of my life. I know that I haven't been posting much lately, but there has been a lot of stuff going on in my life and a lot of stress. I wish I could vent it here, but it is stuff I am unable to post to the world. Let's just say that it has been a pretty scary time for me. It just figures that things like this would happen while my husband is gone. Not to worry though, I'm totally fine and things are getting better. I haven't been knitting a whole lot unfortunately. I did make a sample for one of my beginner classses though.

This yarn is made by Mango Moon. It is recycled rayon, and it has a very interesting look and texture. I fringed it with beads and shiney ribbon yarn. It is a simple garter stitch on a size 10 needle. I think it is only 8 stitches across. This is an excellent project for brand new knitters. The thick and thin yarn is a little hard to get used to, but it is not so hard that a newby couldn't handle it.

Good luck to all the knitters involved in the Knitting Olympics. I would love to join but that would be absolutely impossible. I think an acheivable goal and challenge  for me would be to post more than once a week and squeeze in at least one hour of knitting a day.
