June 2005

Lookie, lookie :)

I got a package from my SP5--helloooo to you secret pal. My son right away got my lovely cards and wanted to start writing on them and send them to Grandma in NY. Thank youuuuuu :).


In other news, I have sucumbed to the SSS. I just have one of Bryant's socks done and I don't have the energy to start the other one. I knew I should have gotten 2 sets of dpns but being cheap, I thought not to---I was sooooo wrong. So, here is the lonely sock and it's owner.


The bright Oregon Tote its ready and just waiting for someone to take it out to dinner or to the movies---yeah, the movies--I want to go see War of the Worlds. Maybe Saturday, or tomorrow Friday...someone drop Sam a hint :).


Well, back to work, I have to assemble all these lovely looms.


Hurry knit a stitch...

The day went by like a blur, a little knitting got done, a lot of baby cuddling, some toddler time too. If you are wondering, Nyah has a cold and when she has a cold, our world revolves around her. She is still up and it is already 11pm. She is having a hard time and I am having a cranky time myself--so Sam has taken over for the moment.  Poor thing, he has a cold too, but he understands when Mom needs a break from the kids--I put myself on time out, no one can talk to me :). I even had to eat a bunch of ghirardelli chocolate--like 1/2 of the baking chocolate bars...I need a treadmill!

All day, I have been trying to sit down and knit this Natalya's Gauntlets. No, I didn't get done, but I was lucky enough to finish the first one!!! Now, I need to find the time to start the other. My picture does not do the pattern justice. I am using Berroco Pleasure yarn, and I absolutely love how soft they are, unfortunately, they have some Angora, along with some Merino wool in them and they make me itch just a tad, but I will wear them anyways. I did some modifications to fit my little hands--knitted less rows both in the top of the mitt and in the thumb.


As I was knitting it, it occurred to me that my Mom would really like a pair of these. She lives in NY and it gets really cold over there, and she always wears gloves, but then takes them off when she needs her fingers. So, I will put a pair of these on my list for my mom. Now hers are going to need some major modifications. She is tiny, really tiny--Great things come in small packages she always says :).

Sam brought home a great care package from my friend Becky,, see what she sent me :)...I am in yarn heaven. My mind is just full of ideas of what to create. Time, time, I need the day to have 36 hours, and I need to dedicate 12 to just looming and knitting.


Oh, I am just so psyched about this, it is super silly, but if you google out Isela Looms, a lot of my looming information comes up--my loom patterns are the first ones on the list. I am super psyched--google knows I exist, I am almost famous, LOL.

Family Fun

Bryant got a couple of new toys, all for under $2.00! Yeah, they were broken the next day, but we had tons of fun while it lasted. Here are a few shots:


It turns out that Sam is very good at jump roping, really, really good! I was impressed. Bryant tried really hard to imitate daddy, the rope was moving forward and backwards, his little legs kept juming up and down, but the rope never passed underneath his feet.


Poor kid, he jumps rope just like his momma. I jump three times before the rope passed under my feet, Sam thought it was funny. No picture of me--Sam thought that it was an unseemly picture to have--my extra generous bossom kept jumping more than my legs, LOL.

Here is the little rose of the garden, she was just sitting there giggling and watching us all play. She is such a poser!


In knitting & looming news, I finished my 2nd Oregon Tote. It is a bright Limeade color.


Drying up.


The bag was knitted with needles and this time, I made a cell phone pouch to go along with it--I loom knitted the cell phone pouch :).

Looming World

As you can see, I have been gone for a couple of days, no, I am not a slacker. I have been busy at the shop helping hubby make looms. Looms galore!! It is a complicated process, easy, but long. Sometimes, I get to bring them home and assemble them, but most of the work load needs to be done at the shop. You should have seen my house Tuesday--I had my whole couch stacked with looms--kinda of nice :).

If you are wondering what a loom is--check out these links:

It is a way to knit without needles--KWON :). It is fun an addictive, just like needle knitting.

So, I may be a slow blogger for a bit--have a huge account to fulfill :), so don't worry, we are doing fine, just a tad busy.

I am hoping to get to Knitter's Nite tonight at Yarn Today but I don't know if I will have enough time. If I do, I have an Oregon Tote in the works, perfect knitting for Knitter's Nite.

So, what is all the rave about Birch, everyone is knitting it, and I am envious. I want to knit one too--anyone out there have the Rowan Mag 34 for the pattern? Ok, so I never knitted lace, but with all this rave about it, I don't want to feel left out. And is the pattern charted or written--cuz if is charted, I am toast!!

Here is a peek into what Sam made the other day, I have not had a chance to sit down and try it out--not to mention, I don't have any idea of what to do with it!! But it is nice there another craft in my future :).


Later knitters/loomers :),



As I sit here this day, I started looking back at my life and I realize that it has been a tad lonely without my sisters. Somethings have been happening the past three weeks that had given me hope that someday I will see them again.

You see one of my sisters found one of my many email addresses two weeks ago and she wrote me. I was in hog heaven when I received her letter, I read it and re-read it to make sure that I was not imagining. I feverishly wrote her back, told her almost everything that is going on in my life. She wrote back and told me bits and pieces of her life and my other two sisters. I sent an email back, but I have not received a response. It has been over one week and nothing. I am quite saddened and sometimes I just want to sit down and cry. Did I lose them again? Is this just another trick of life?

The past brings with it a zillion of memories some good and many bad ones. The break-up between our parents did not leave us in a good position and at one point we ended up separated from each other. Laws did not permit either side to communicate with the other side. But now that we are grown up, we can do whatever we want, but I wonder if maybe the past has opened up wounds that have not completely healed. (I will not go into detail because I will end up in a torrent of tears-but know that I have a good life and I love my sisters and my mother dearly. We all make mistakes in life, some of our mistakes costs us half of our lives, and others just a scratch, but others take your heart away).

Don't worry, I don't need a Coo Coo Doctor, I am just a little heart broken for the moment...I am still my happy self :).

In lighter news, our apartment has an extra bedroom now :). The kids are sleeping in their own room now. Even Bryant has been a big boy and has slept in his own bed for 2 whole nights. And the best part of all, I have a room for all my crafts :). Sam said that I can have the computer room to put all my crafts, so watch out, we are coming out of the closet and I am spreading my yarns and looms all over the room. We will no longer hide behind the closet doors, LOL.

Hugs to all,


Down memory lane

Today, I received a package from my mom. I was very excited to receive it as it contained a nice treat for me--some pictures of me  when I was little.  You see, I don't have any pictures of me before the age of 16 and I have always wondered how I looked like.

Here are the only pictures that my mom has of me and my sisters, one of my sisters is not in the pictures, she had not been born yet. I have 3 sisters, Susana, Carmen, and Silvia. I am the oldest :). I was born in Mexico and I live a big part of my life by the beach in Lazaro Cardenas, Michoacan.

Sorry, they are not the best quality.






In this last picture, I am about 11 years old, and the mushroom cake is my birthday cake. I have a thing about mushrooms, whenever I draw a house, it looks like a little mushroom. You can also see my sweet Grandma. She raised me and she taught me the love for the fiber arts.

These pictures are a great gift as I have not seen any of my sisters for over 22 years. This is the only way I have to "see" them. My Grandma, I have not seen since I was 15-so it is almost 13 years since I last saw her.

This is my past and I just wanted to share it with all of you. Wasn't I a peach? :), LOL.

Exciting news for Loganites!!!

A New Yarn Shop!!! Yarn Today is our brand new yarn shop out in Smithfield. They have been open for about a month now and I just barely found out about it by pure luck!! We were leaving Summerfest and driving and talking and the radio was on and the radio announcer starts saying something about yarn of today and the future and of course, I turned my attention completely to the radio, Sam is talking to Bryant and me, I have my ears and eyes fixed on the radio. Yep, I had not imagined it, a new most needed yarn shop. And I was definitely in luck because they stay open til 8pm on Thursdays. So, immediately I tell Sam to head to Smithfield. He is such a sweetheart, he heads out that way, of course, he has ulterior motives, he wants to check out if they sell looms :).

We got there and we were received very warmly. They even have a section for the kiddos to sit and play, yeah, it is definitely kid friendly :). While I browsed around and touched everything, Bryant was being entertained by the owner's daughter and some little toys. Thursday nights is their Knitter's Nite--yep, every Thursday. Kim, Miriam want to go next Thursday and hang out?

Their yarn selection ample--they have Lamb's Pride in all their weights. The Burly weight seems awesome, definitely good for felting projects.

I went in to the section where the knitters were knitting away and I was received with a warm welcome. Everyone asked and admired my Oregon Tote and I felt right at home chatting away about projects and needles and yarn. I was happy to be there with other fellow knitters--both male and female there :)....very nice to see guys come over and show their stuff. I left sadly, as I really wanted to stay there and knit away, but we still had dinner ahead of us and Bryant was starving and Nyah had a dirty pooper.

The yarn shop in general is great, I am glad we have another one in town. Very friendly people, and with every purchase you get a little gift-either hand lotion or a chap-stick. I love it, I got the hand lotion. Bryant got cookies too :). And Sam got to see that they do carry the Knifty Knitter looms.

Of course, I had to come home with something :). I have been looking for some pink yarn for Nyah's socks and I have been wanting a pair of Addis in size 15, which they do carry. Oh, about the Addi's their price-PHENOMENAL, about 2 bucks cheaper than anywhere else :). Happy knitter :).


They also offer classes, I don't need any of the ones they teach, but they will be teaching a felted clogs class--they even have a washer in premises. And very important, they are looking for teachers right now....Miriam this is a shout-out to you. I am sure you would be a great addition to their instructors staff :).

Hugs to all :),

Socks in the making

Lame title, but I really don't have much to blog about, I have been knitting socks for Bryant. Pattern, not really have one, just knitting a tube that has enough stitches to fit his foot. I have the heel done and I am doing the gusset decreases right now. Here he is posing for his sock--he is really excited and he wants the mate done right now. Tell ya what, kids have no sense of what it takes to knit a sock. 


Right now, I am waiting for some Koigu that I won on Ebay, as soon as it arrives, I will start on a pair of socks for me :).

The felting bug did not go away, so I casted on for another Oregon Tote. It is going to be a bright one. This time, I am using size 15 needles, hopefully it comes out a little bigger than my first one. They are bamboo, and I so wished they were Addis, I was knitting a lot faster with addis, but no addis on size 15 around here :(.


As I type this, I am waiting for my ride for a church activity. My son just told me "Mom, you look beautiful" so, I told Sam to take a picture of me. Hear ye, hear ye, my son says I am beautiful :). Kids are sweet sometimes :) and we gotta luv them. They luv us even if we look like road kill.


Hugs to all,


Weekend in a wrap

So, who went to knit in public on Saturday? I did, I did!! I went with Miriam to Borders and we where knitting in a very public spot--right outside the store :). Miriam was working on a felted bag for her knitting class and I was working on a pair of socks for Bryant.  Yeah, I am into the sock making now, but the felting bug has not gone away. Today, I had the incontrollable urge to knit another felted bag. I did not act upon my desires though, instead, I cleaned the house--talk about a terrible choice!!!

Over the weekend, I finished the pair of socks for Nyah. They are super colorful and next pairs, I will choose a different color. She wore them and now they are in the wash. Miriam, thanks for posting the pattern--and they do stay on :).

Nyah, like all little babies is attracted to colorful things and each time we put her in the car seat, she reached for her feet to play with the socks, it was adorable. I am thinking this yarn will make a great stuff animal for a little one.


In the cooking department, I ventured out to try Kim's Chocolate Truffles recipe. They turned out very well (if I don't count 3 of them getting stuck to the pan), and I got my chocolate fix for the day. Very rich--definitely Death by Chocolate.


And this is my family as I type, they are all learning Spanish :).


Last, but not least, I would like to wish Kim a happy birthday, I don't know when it is but I know it is this month and I don't want to miss saying happy birthday Kim :).


Road trip recap

Goodness, you leave for a few days in a small little trip and come back to a mountain of dirty clothes--new rule for vacations: take disposable clothes :). Ok, so disposable clothes are not an option, unless you are filthy rich, especially the rich part, the filthy part most of us can fulfill easily. So, I spent half the day doing laundry and lounging around the house feeling sorry about my knees and how much they hurt. In case you are wondering, I am only 27 and I already have knee pain, next thing my hips will be hurting too! I don't know if the pain was caused by the "running" or by my lack of exercise, whatever the cause, it hurts!

So, what did we actually do in our trip--other than drive for hours on end through the dirt of Utah!?! Well, we wanted to give Bryant a real treat and we took him to Hoggle Zoo. He loves animals and is an avid viewer of Stanley from Disney Channel. So, we took pictures of as many animals as possible and we will be putting a Stanley Book together for him. It was actually loads of fun, every time he saw an animal, he said, "take a picture for my book Mom". He was a little bombed that the tigers and lions were sleeping, he really wanted to see them in action. He has a thing for big cats. His love for them extends to the point that one of his uncles, Uncle Wendel, made him a little tiger with his welder. It is a tiny little tiger, but Bryant loves it and keeps it in his toy box. I have a little animal lover :).


Nyah loved it too, although she is only 6 months, she really had fun looking at her brother get all excited. The giggles and squeals made it all worth it.

Next destination--MOAB-Arches National Park. So after driving for what seem like forever (thank goodness I had my sock to work on) we finally arrived in Moab. We were a bit disappointed when we got to the park. I always imagined this park full of arches--real big arches, but my ignorance made me imagined the wrong thing. Yeah, there are over 2000 arches, however, most of them are about 3 feet wide. The Delicate Arch is magnificent and it deserves all its fame. But, I really did imagine the wrong thing. Bryant and Nyah did not enjoy it much--we had to drive, stop, get them out of the car, get them back in the car seats, drive, stop, etc., and after awhile they got all cranky. Next time we come, we will wait until they are older, lots older, lots lots older.

The best part of the trip--Mesa Verde, just one word, AMAZING. It is completely amazing how the Anasazi people made their homes in cliffs, literally, just hanging there by a little bit of mud. Seeing what is left of their civilization makes one ponder all about their lives, their customs, and especially it made us think that the parents back then must have had great control of their children--either that, or they grabbed them by the neck and show them the cliff and said to them "either you behave, or I will drop you myself" LOL.

In the bits left of their personals, archeologists unearthed some bits of knitting too--loop knitting. Here is a picture of a sandal made out of turkey feathers.


While there, we stayed in Cortez, CO, not much to see (at all) but very good Mexican food at Tequilas restaurant. Also, if you are heading in that direction, I recommend either the Holiday Inn Express, or the Comfort Inn, the others are a bit in the shabby side. No, we didn't stay at either one of the two above, we thought to ourselves, lets save some $$ and stay at a cheapo hotel, well, it was the worst night ever for all of us.

Oh, another thing to keep in mind, if you are heading this way and you have a tape or CD player, make sure you pack some tunes with you. No radio stations for a long, looooooooooooong time, and when you finally get one, it is a lame one. We were wondering if that is the reason for all the pubs and cantinas on the way down, hmmmm.

Although it is sweet to go on vacation, it is always sweeter to come home. We really missed Cache Valley, and personally I realized that we are not as desolate as I always thought we were.  Hey, we have radio stations, LOL. Kiddin' aside, I really like where we live and I am very glad that we live in the North part of Utah where is green and not so hot, don't get me wrong, it gets hot, but not over 110. I really think it is the prettiest place in Utah--I needed the vacation to appreciate my small little world, yeah, still needs more yarn shops, but it is a beauty to behold; especially during this time, as you drive out of Sardine Canyon and all you see is this little town with green mountains all around speckled with snowy white, I am glad to call this place home. My heart is giving a little space to Cache Valley :).

For our next vacation though, we are heading over to a big city where the kids can have fun. Ok, truth be told, I have always wanted to go see Mickey, so our next vacation is to California :).

I placed some pics of the road trip in the photo album-Road Kill.

Wait...don't go yet, I got some knitting time in today. Check out what I made. I finished the first one tonight. Here is my little model, half-way through the project :). No more tight socks for little chubby feet.

Pic Details: I forgot to give the proper credit for this little pattern--Miriam has it posted in her blog. I just did the heel a little different, I did the k1, sl 1. The yarn is Simple Stripes from Knipicks in Crayon color.


We are back!!

Hi Gang :),

The trip was fun and wonderful but we are super happy to be back home in Cache Valley. Over the course of our trip to Mesa Verde, we stopped at Hogle Zoo, then a two night stay in Moab where we got to see Arches National Park. Then we headed to Mesa Verde.

The driving was not bad at all, the kids behaved and little Nyah was an angel most of the time. By the end of the trip, she learned that crying did not do much, so she just went to sleep. Bryant loved staying at hotels and playing in the pool non-stop. He thinks is so cool to stay at hotels, he likes it so much that he wants to go back to "Hootels". But, I can see that he is super psyched to be home again. All of his toys are scattered all over the floor--Sam says that Bryant is simply marking his territory again :). Nyah is tuckered out and she is taking a nap.

I will give you more details of the trip with pictures tomorrow. I think is time for this all hag to go to bed--my knees are killing me!!

But, I would like to leave you with a picture of my first pair of needle knit socks :).



What a blast!!!

So, after feeling like road kill yesterday, I headed to Knitters Nite at Rumplestiltskin, it was exactly what I needed. Tons of laughter, lots of shared stories about unthinkable subjects, such as having hairy legs, and our ever expanding hips, oh, and lets not forget our ever growing yarn stash.  But the very best part of the night, a scrumptious chocolate treat that Kim brought to Miriam to celebrate her birthday. It was chocolate decandence at its best!!! Kim you are an awesome cook!!!

The conversation was so interesting that some of us kept making mistakes in our knitting, LOL. If you have ever been to a knitters get together, you can imagine that it gets to be a little bit difficult keeping track of what you are knitting when the conversation is hot, hot, hot. So, a rule for me for knitters nite--take something mindless like a bag that is going to be felted and is completely done with stockinette stitch ;).

I worked on my sock, and I got some pointers from Miriam, like tugging at the first stitches. It is going a lot better now, and I have about 3 inches knitted. It looks nice and thick, it will make a good slipper sock. The first rows though were really difficult to get used to, all those pointy needles going every which way trying to poke your eyes. The next hurdle, the heel.

Well, I am off and I will post again as soon as I come back from the Road Trip--wish us luck :).

A new thing...or a waste????

Well, I started something new. I decided that I really want to make socks with needles, so I grabbed my #3 dpns, and my sock book and sat down to try it out.

It did not go too good. First of all, it says to divide the stitches to 4 needles. Well, go do you start dividing them? I finally figure it out, but that is something that should definitely be addressed in the book. Maybe it does and I skipped it. I skip a lot of things when I read, LOL.

I have about 4 rows done and it is getting easier, however, all those pointy needles keep trying to get in my eyes...hmmm, how do you all arrange them? I am willing to give this sock knitting a try, but it is a little difficult, and I have not even gotten to the short rows, agghh, help!!! Please tell me it will get easier with time.


In the looming section, I have been working on the baby afghan for my pattern book. It is looking lovely and it feels heavenly--I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Bulky. The only bad news in this section, it is an expensive blanket, very, very expensive. I am going to have to guard it with my life after is done. 


In personal news, I have been feeling like crap all day and I probably look it too. I just feel icky, kinda tired and cranky. So, to make me a happy person, I am going to Knitters Nite and Sam will have to take care of the kids tonight. I need a break badly....

We are leaving tomorrow in our road trip adventure. Wish us luck. It is our first time travelling in the car with the kids for that long of a time. Actually, we have never been anywhere farther than SLC. I hate being in the car, so I am thinking of a lot of projects to take with me to keep me busy and my eyes away from the road.

Be back by Thursday, :), I leave you with a picture of my finished Oregon Tote and my son's foot :)


Blog Name Change

You may have noticed that I changed the blog name...well, I think this one fits a little better. I usually knit a stitch at a time. I knit one stitch and then I have to get up a get a drink for my boy. I knit another stitch or two and then I have to get up and change a diaper. I knit a couple of rows, and then I have to give a bottle to the baby....thus a Stitch In Time :).

My bag is finished :)

I know it took me forever to get started, but I kept hoping if I left the needles right next to the yarn, that it will start by itself. Well, after waiting for the magic to happen for two whole weeks, I decided that it wasn't going to happen by itself. So, I finally started it two days ago. It took me only two afternoons, yippeee!!


So, I took advantage and felted the bag that I made in my knitting class. I know, it has been over a week since that class ended, but I did not want to felt one lonely bag. I could have felted 3 bags, but I did not have an extra zippered pillow case. I need to pick up another case at Wally-world. And guess what I even found a box that fit perfectly on my Oregon Tote bag. The other one has a smaller box and I don't know how it is going to end up looking. Maybe I'll go in search of a box around the house. Wish me luck in the hunting.


Tomorrow is knitter's nite, but I don't know if I am going to make it or not. We were supposed to leave today on a mini-vacation to Mesa Verde, but our car is in the shop. They are not going to have it ready til this evening. Sam is thinking we should leave tomorrow, Friday, in the afternoon. But, maybe I can convince him to leave on Saturday that way I can attend knitter's nite :). We'll see.

Oh, I know I am terrible, but I finally found the Baby Boottees book that I have been looking for. I found it at Overstock and they had shipping of $2.00 so I took advantage and got some other books.


No more books for me for a little while. I think I have acquired a nice collection of baby knits books. Now, it is time to start knitting from them :).

Later :)
