A Little Catch Up

Happy Monday Knitters,

I have to start by apologizing to you all for not keeping up with my blogging.  Things have been super busy around here lately, and when all is said and done, at the end of the day I've been too emotionally and physically drained to do much of anything.  I am going to try and do better this week.

To catch you all up: my first day of work last Monday was great - it was nice to get back into the swing of things.  I had forgotten how much I enjoy waitressing!  I don't work again till next week - I'm just filling in when they need me - but in the meantime I'm doing my baking which is keeping me busy.   It's going great as well and I find it very fun. 

Another new thing is that I joined the newest Itty-Bitty Swap.  It's an Easter theme this time around - bunnies and chickens to be exact.  Like I've mentioned many, many times, Easter is my favourite holiday, so I'm very excited about this one.  I've already knit up a Dotted Chicken for my secret swap pal, which is the picture at the beginning of this post.  I thought I'd share it since she doesn't know I'm her partner.  I had so much fun knitting this for her!!  I've always been a huge fan of chickens and cows!  You can see more pictures and info on my Ravelry project page.

Speaking of chickens and cows, my copy of Spud and Chloe at the Farm arrived today!!  I'm SO EXCITED!!  Susan's patterns are always amazing and fun to knit!!  I'm making myself wait until I'm done all my baking for today before I look at it - sort of like a reward for all my hard work.  I would like to knit the entire set using the Spud and Chloe yarn, so I'm thinking I'll need to start collecting it bit by bit.  If I could chose right now, I think I'd like to make the Mother Hen first and then the Brown Cow

Well, that's it for my update for today.  I should get back to the baking....the cookies are about to beep.  Have a great day everyone!!

Happy Knitting!!


  1. It's cu-ute! I love the splashes of color against the white.
    You are one super, strong woman to waitress. I would totally drop the tray of entrees. You have a baking biz as well? Yum!

    Thanks Stephanie! Luckily when I waitress I don't have to carry all the plates on a tray, just usually two or four at a time, so it's not that bad :) Yep, I do sell my baking in our gift shop as well as by orders.

  3. You are so creative! The chicken is adorable and I love the colors. I agree...I would drop the trays, too. Hope you have a good day tomorrow.

  4. Your chick is super cute! And I'm jealous of your book, jealous of all of you who live in the US with all the beautiful yarn and books !

  5. Thank you Nicky and Lucy!! I'm so excited to get this chicken sent off to her new home :)

  6. I have to say I am jealous that your book arrived! Mine is still "in transit"! I love your dotted chicken. Your knits are so beautiful and inspiring.
