Custom Done!

I finished my first ever custom today. I had issues with the yarn supplier but in the end I really liked the yarn. My customer was so kind and understanding to the issues and she was great to work with. It is way past my bedtime!

Here is a picture of her shorties:

Collab with SaySumthing

I am doing my first official collaboration. Here is a picture of what I knit:

I am going to have it paired with Carolyn's shirt color red size 2T that says "cloth diaper for a clean planet" I am so excited!


So who knew buying yarn was my favorite pastime? Steve says I need to stop and wait for it to catch up with me. But gosh how can I stop? This is what is in the mail to me right now:

6 oz Adara
6 oz Ciara
4 oz Elsbeth

Laines Magnifiques

In about 6 weeks I will be getting:
Western Sky Knits
From Kim 10 oz Choco Rainbow
From Heather 10 oz Innocence and 10 oz Thorny Rose

30 year mark

I am going to be 30 soon. I normally am not one to make any sort of clamor about birthdays. This one is weird to me. Within the last year I have really reconstructed my life. I abandoned a major career, offloaded a lot of debt, started a small online business and in the middle of this I am raising two kids. I talk to people my age and they seem so much older, so much more advanced in what they want to do with this thing called life. I guess that is where I have always been different. I am not a planner in a sense. I kind of allow this cosmic element to push me down the path and then I figure out what to do from there. When I was still working at "The Bank" people would always tell me; you need a 5 year plan, you need goals, you need a road map of your life. You know what? No I don't. I am done with stress and what is coming around the next corner. For the first time in a long time I am just enjoying life for what it is. My mom has this saying on her wall about not walking where there is a path but making your own path. My first thought is well what if you get lost? I think I was lost for awhile. I am going to stay on the road for a bit and see where it goes.
