I have….

Filed under: family,knitting,yarn — K @ 1:46 pm

1 husband, 2 kids, a cat, 2 parents, their dog, and their parrot in my house. Thank God I also have several pointy sticks to force them to keep their distance when I need a break.

My parents have two houses. We have none. It saves money for both of us, for us to live in this house and pay for the utilities for one of the houses. So, here we are. Generally, it’s a pretty good set-up. Nice to have the built-in babysitters when we need it (not often), but we tend to not rely on it too often.

The kids — N is a boy, a little over 3 (b. 7/04). C is a girl, 1.5 (b. 12/05). My husband B and I have been married for 5 years. I used to knit once in a while, being self-taught from a book from Wal-Mart. I never really got into it, and rarely finished any knitting projects. I crocheted mostly, and that’s what I usually did to actually finish projects. Slowly, though, a shift happened. And I became…. *a knitter*. And I found a knitting group to meet with every week or two. And they introduced me to…. *good yarn*. I feel like a new person, with a new focus. Now, how to make these kids comply with my need to knit constantly. :scratching chin:
