Knitting Resources I Like

Knit Map: This site really is a yarn store locater from all over the world! Going on a trip and need a yarn shop? Visit this place!

Knit Pro: Takes images and makes them into patterns. Kinda cool!

Knitty: A website with FREE knitting patterns on it, very cool.

Random Stripe Generator: Need random stripes for a project, well here you go!

Ravelry: Great knitting, crocheting and spinning site. It is worth checking out. It is in BETA so expect a waiting list (but the wait is right now less than 24 hours so really is that a wait compared to the 3+ months I waited?). I am MamaMay if you want to look me up.

Wiknit: A knitting blog that keeps up with all the contest that are knitting, crotchet and even spinning related. If you want to check it out, please do!

Wilton's Colorant Mixing Page: Anyone that id going to try dyeing with Wilton's Icing would benefit from this pages recommendations.

Yarn Sizes and Substitutions
: Good resource for finding the weight of recycled yarns.

I have been REALLY busy lately but here is a quick rundown of this month so you don't think I have died or something horrible (what with shootings and such at my apartment complex). Hubby is right now in Hawaii, but before you think he is lucky or something you need to know that he is waking up at "work" for 12 hours each day... sometimes more so he isn't enjoying the lovely beaches or anything. My mother in law is here and we are getting along great.

My car got broken into at McDonalds. I walked out as they were jimmying my car. I was carrying 2 kids at the time so I didn't get plates as they drove off. I have NO clue why they would break into my car. I have a blue POSH car (Piece Of Sh*t Hatchback) that doesn't have air or a radio and has the paint is peeling. I might have understood if we had just filled the tank, but the tank was on E.

We are completely out of the old apartment. I have to turn in the keys but that is it. I even sold the washer and dryer for 250. It feels good to make money!

We went to Chick-fil-A yesterday dressed as cows and got free food (the second Friday of July they have Cow Appreciation Day and they will give you free food for dressing like a cow). On top of that we found out that ever Monday in July all the Chick-fil-A's in our area are giving FREE breakfast! Talk about a deal! I know where we are going for breakfast!
