good intentions

September 16, 2010

you know, i always do have good intentions, however, the day seems to always get away from me. my good intentions not only include daily household chores, but that of the wooly nature as well.

see, for the most part during the day, i help out my husband who is disabled. he was in a car accident about 9 years ago and was almost paralyzed. the doctors did not know how he was able to walk around, they do not realize just how strong my husband truly is. he had a five level fusion in his neck. he has all kinds of bars and screws holding his neck up. not a good situation. so, most of my day is spent taking care of his mangled muscles and just trying to make him comfortable.

what i really want to do is start my own on-line and craft fair business. i think i want to sell things like baby booties, bibs, etc. start off small and work my way up to bigger things. like, i am really wishing for a spinning wheel. oh man, what i wouldn’t give for one of them ( well, you know, within reason). i would love to be able to sell yarn. i have my name picked out and everything.

i guess i am just kind of daydreaming here, but i have been daydreaming for so long and i really want to turn it into reality.

how do some of you do it? is there anyone out there i could talk to about it? someone who could be a mentor? i guess i just need a friend right now.


Hi Guys!

i feel embarassed for how long it has been since i have last posted. i had so many good intentions, but just fell into a rut and could not recover. i lost my knitting groove real bad. i am not trying to make excuses, nor am i looking for sympathy. i’m just saying that it has been tough. okay, okay, enough of that, let’s get on with the knitting.

we have a firend who had his first grandson the other day and boy is he a proud grandpa. i started a pair of booties and plan on making a couple pairs for him. the grandpa loves them. he has quite a few grandchildren and i have made them quite a few pairs. he thinks they are super cute. this is the first time i am making booties for a boy though. usually i dress them up with ribbon and such, but of course that is not advisable here. grandpa even stated in a funny way — “no pink or purple, mary” he is a funny guy!

so anyway, i started a pair of dark blue baby booties with a cuff. i figured that was pretty masculine. as masculine as you can get for a baby anyway! of course, i have no pictures yet. my camera is charging. god, it has been soo long since i have blogged, or even took a picture with my camera. i am so looking forward to this. the blogging and the knitting. this will be fun.

in my next post, i will have an FO to share with you. it will not be much, but it will at least be a start.

here is to new beginnings!

knit and be happy!
