What time is it?

What has happened to the time? It's been forever since I started this and last posted. I gotta catch up. Well...I finished my MSW and am now an official Licensed Social Worker in NJ! Yea!!!! Still looking for a job...or should I say I am now about to start officially looking for a job. Trying to soak up the free time right now, but I really need to get off my arse! I am also now an official married woman, Mrs. Porreca! A big change from Miss Rose, but I'm loving it! (McDonald's is in my head right now) I have so many projects to post and so much to talk about. I'm back on track now and will hopefully post regularly. I've been knitting a lot in my free time so plenty of WIPs and FOs will be shown soon, I'm so proud I need to brag. Gotta finish sewing up my new fav sweater made from the most luscious yarn ever! Details to come...

Finally...Back for more!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything and I have tons of pics to post! Here is the sweater from hell. I gave it away awhile ago and she didn't really care (3 years old) but her mom loved it! And is making it her official Winter Sweater! She says it fits beautifully so I guess I don't hate it as much anymore... Okay the pic looks really bad, but I promise it looks much better in person and in my camera! The yarn is KnitPicks Shine worsted and it's all solid colors. Let me know what you think!

Knitting Hell

I never thought I'd say this, but I hate what I just finished. I finished that intarsia sweater (finally!) this morning and I was so excited I did a happy dance. Okay, not really, but I did jump up and run around with my pups. I'm weaving in ends and going to finished sewing it up tonight and tomorrow b/c my deadline was last Friday. Going to post proud pics of not the best knitting I've ever done, but it does look better than I thought it would, really soon. Can't wait to show proof of the end of my KNITTING HELL ERA!

Too much!

I have way too many projects on the needles right now. I don't even know where to begin. I have two sweaters for my kids, one needs finishing, actually refinishing, the armholes didn't fit, and the other needs intarsia. I'm still working on those skills, thought I was much better than I really was. Didn't think I was great but did think I was able to just do one shot and it work out somewhat. Anyway, I've been such a bad blogger and have no time to knit anymore. I need to pick up the pace and get this thing going. Promise to post pics soon! Again, please drop a line if your out there! It's getting really lonely now.

Update the Drama

I reread what I wrote and realized I didn't fully explain my drama at all! Okay, so here it is. Mostly it's about my wedding and my moving. My moving is just so damn frustrating I can't stand it! But right now my wedding is driving me nuts! I can't wait to get married, so that's not the issue. My issue is that my boss and my best friend are conflicting due to bridal shower plans. The girl I babysit for can't be in my wedding so that means we have to "please" her in some other way. Whole 'nother set of issues there... Anyway, her mom, my boss, wants my best friend to throw a huge party for me with her daughter. This can not and will not happen. We both wanted a small thing for my with just my closest friends and one or two drinks, if that. Meaning, a nice lunch or dinner. So my boss now gets that, but it's still a pain because she's calling me to call my friend to call her. Why can't she just call her??? This is supposed to be a surprise, right? Back to knitting later...whole new stuff on the needles and pics to come.

Drama, Drama, Drama

I feel like Jan Brady or something. Or maybe not quite that far yet, but getting there. Life is going okay but full of _____, you guessed it! DRAMA! I've been working hard on my Blissful, will post pics soon, and I just finised buying yet more yarn for my newest projects, my first two baby sweaters. Can't wait to start, both they're birthdays are very soon! Okay gotta go but will finish fixing up my blog very soon, I can't stand how it looks right now! I also hope someone is reading my lame crap so far, but I promise whoever you are they it'll get better soon. Please feel free to drop a line so I know someone's out there until I can join some web rings or whatever you call them, soon.

Poor hank...

Okay so I found my camera (it was in my room the whole time!) but to get the pics on my computer I had to make a quick trip to BestBuy and buy a new cord thing. Sux but had to be done. So here are my before, during and after picks of my new yarn for my Blissful project, cute lil tank from SnB Happy Hooker, my next big Crochet endeavor.

This is how it came................This is how it should look.......and this is what I did to it

The two smallish ball on the sides are my lame attempt at trying to organize my untangling. So far they are staying this way for a long, long time. The positive: I order an extra hank as always for fear of problems like this and I was disappointed at first with the feel of the linen but know after beating the crap out of it, love the feel of it. I never worked with linen before so I had no idea what I was in for. Price or feel.
