Knitting Ninjas....





Not to be confused with the Knitting Zombies, or the Green Bay Knitting Contingency.... however, the Green Bay girls are the ones who I blame for my new hobby.

The Famous Green Bay Knitters! (photo courtesy of ME!)

Do I have time to knit? HELL TO THE NO!
However, it keeps me from being TOTALLY addicted to Facebook and it gives me something to do in waiting rooms all over the place instead of reading.
(The truth with the reading bit is I diagnosed myself with adult ADD and I SOOOOO cannot focus on a book with any kind of story line.)
The first positive thing about the knitting is that I can actually KNIT for more than five seconds without getting bored. MAJOR!!
The second thing that I didn't expect was that my 9 year loves to watch me and wants me to teach her! (not sure I am qualified to teach this just yet) She also wants to be the first one to use the washcloth that I am making.
Yes, people.... I am THAT exciting.(that's what she said)
I will post a photo of my washcloth SO FAR later today... ya know..... while I am decorating a wedding cake for 110 ppl..... which I will also post about because man.... I love me some cake.

*UPDATE!*
HERE IS MY WASHCLOTH! Do NOT look too closely and my dropped/added stitches (look at me! talking like a freakin' knitter already!)

.... and what I made to keep my belly full....

  5. Great pic! Now what I want to see is the pic of the washcloth! You know, if you can knit a washcloth you can knit a blanket. Or a scarf. Or a bunch of other stuff. Rock on!

  10. I'm with Corey. We're the Happy Hookers. But we can totally hang with the Stitch 'n Bitchers.

    I marvel at your fanciness.

  11. somehow my day of biking with Juan Carlos and repairing 2 bike chains pales in comparison with your fanciness.
    Love the 'nittin ninjas. Gonna go get me a pair of those fancy bamboo or wooden needles soon.
    How do you learn without those WI ninjas by your side at the pool in the sun?
