First post...of many

So, apparently, knitting blogs are rather popular out there on the net thing. I think I used to have a blog once upon a time, but don't know what happened to it. I've recently wanted to share my innermost thoughts with the rest of the world (whether the rest of the world wants to share or not). So here I am, with a blog.

Any way...I guess I should start with some type of intro, even though this is my blog and all. My name is Jenny, I'm 31, married, mother of 2.5 (24+ weeks pregnant with #3). I'm originally from Southern California (since I was 8), but in August, I packed 2 kids, a hampster, and a Canadian into my car, along with about 1/4 of my worldly possessions, and we drove across the country to Toronto, Canada. In another week or so, we should have everything we need to file the papers for permanent residency.

I have to say, it's way different in Canada. For starters there is this white stuff on the ground and continually falling from the sky. I mean, it's just not going away. I'm told it's snow...and I should see the grass again sometime in March or April. Hell, I remember last March I was basking out by the pool. Somehow I doubt I'll be doing that this year. I mean, besides the fact that I'll be about 400 weeks pregnant, it'll just be too darn cold. Now maybe if we were ice skating at the pool, that would be different.

Oh, something else about me. I'm a knitter. I say that like I'm at a self help meeting. Hello, my name is Jenny, and I'm a knitter. I have too many projects going at once and it seems like I'm never going to finish anything. I think I'm what they call a process knitter. I love knitting for knits sake. I love searching for new patterns, going out and petting wool and buying wool and imagining what I'm going to make with said wool. I'm in over my head. My husband just thinks it's ADD.

I'm on Ravelry as Alleusion and frequently post at knittinghelp.com as Alleusion. I'm not the best knitter out there, and I'm certainly not fast. But I'm learning every day and there are so many things I want to learn and do and try. As I type this, I'm staring at the 2 balls of yarn I picked up today to make my father and stepmom fingerless gloves for Christmas. Might I mention that Christmas is approximately 14 days away and I seriously doubt they'll be done in time. But hey, it's the thought that counts right? I'll post progress, and of course finished pictures when I'm done. It would defeat the purpose of sharing myself with the world if I neglected to do this.

So, join me on my decent into madness. The madness that is my knitting addiction.

haha...you mean you are not partial to the snow? If it makes you feel any better, darling, I am a Canadian, born and raised, and I still cannot aclimate to the stuff...it makes things too cold and too bright. Lord knows I don't want to see anything that bright without a decent number of cups of coffee in me first...
