Our Little Plan

Hello Sunshines,

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter, I apologize in advance that this post is being published Today rather than Monday but things have been a little hectic. Our Easter was quite interesting, we had an amazing buffet breakfast with my family, which consisted of my parents and brother along with my papa, aunt and uncle. It was pretty awesome with the fact that on a normal day I can like never finish my plate meaning that my fiancé has to finish my food. Or his brother has too. The entertainment that they had were amazing in my mind, one of the groups that played had this sway motion as the vocalist sung to the point I started to wiggle with his sway and my mom couldn’t stop laughing. If you don’t know me I will explain a little more. God blesses each of us with unique skills that make us, well us and singing is not my skill although I love singing it isn’t something that I would want to do for a career. I would rather focus on my craftiness of yarn because it really is a post apocalyptic skill. I remind my fiancé that every so often because seriously who is going to knit him a blanket or socks or a sweater if the time came that we had no way of purchasing clothing anymore. The next thing that we did… Well the next thing I did was take a fat nap I mean like the moment we got to the house I laid on the bed and I was out. It was like when the power goes out because of an outage. Yeah, my fiancé was trying to get my attention because we had yet another party to go to. This time it was for his family and he has a lot of them, plus four new family members who were just born. Cuties! It was amazing dinner and I tried to make sure that I was being helpful. I hate being at parties and just being there. I love making rounds and talking with everyone and creating a relationship with each of them because I will be family soon. But also because that is what a party is for creating close knit relationships with people whether related or not. When the party was over we went home and we had some interesting conversations of what we want our future to be like.  Continue reading Our Little Plan

Just some socks, the big reveal!

Hello sunshines,

I hope that you had a wonderful April weekend, as the title of this post suggests, this is the big reveal of my socks. My very first and definitely not my last pair of socks. It was so shocking at how fast it was to knit these suckers up and I am so happy that I was finally able to have a chance to photograph them in such beautiful natural lighting.  Continue reading Just some socks, the big reveal!

Knitting Sweaters

Hello Sunshines,

I bought my first pattern book a few weeks ago, mainly because I wanted to hone my fiber skills more. Granted, I took these last few weeks pretty hard, the book itself was so intimidating. But I am here today to say that I am going to be doing the dirty, hehe… little jokes are always great to feel that much more comfortable.

Enough of the babbling. Let’s get into it.  Continue reading Knitting Sweaters

Just Some Socks

Hello there Sunshines,

Recently, I decided that I needed to learn how to knit socks. I really don’t know where the fascination of knitting my own socks came from but, here we are right, learning to knit socks. To be honest though, I really shouldn’t be making socks since the last few years my mom has been gifting me packs of socks for the last, like four years. (I know that is a lot of socks) I still have a few packs that haven’t even been opened and used. Yet, I am learning none the less. I got my pattern from Knitpicks.com titled “go your own way socks” which holds two patterns, one for Top down and the other for toe up, this pattern is completely free to download and is really easy to follow. If you somehow get lost just find their youtube video for a knit a long. Which I have been doing periodically honestly. Continue reading Just Some Socks
