Let’s Knit Something!

I have the knitting bug as of late. I blame it on being confined indoors due to the severe heat – it’s supposed to be a lovely 108 degrees fahrenheit today. Just super!

Anyway, I managed to get my hands on some fantastic cubic knitting needles (cubic as in square vs the regular smooth circular shape) which were recommended to me by a woman in a local Stitch n Bitch group some time ago. I love them. I didn’t think I could love knitting needles…but I love lurve these!

I whipped up several pairs of kimono style booties in some nice vegan friendly yarn. That should go a long way. I ended up nearly buying all of the teal yarn I found at the local JoAnn’s a few days ago. Completely stuck on that color. I think it’s because it reminds me of the ocean and I really miss the west coast




Hey y’all! Welcome to my new blog. I suppose we will see where this goes. I guess an intro would be appropriate. Here it goes:

My name is Janelle and I live in the southwest, specifically the borderlands, which, if you believe anything the news has to say these days, includes the beautiful city of Las Cruces, NM. Like most people, I guess, I have a degree, specifically a B.A. in English with an Emphasis in Literature (really that’s how it’s printed on my diploma) accompanied by a minor in French, though I will tell you that I was only one class shy of a double major but couldn’t see staying in college any longer than I had to… Yes, I end my sentences like that all the time.

I’m a wife and mommy. I like to knit, eat, move around the country with my small clan, explore my surroundings, and every once in awhile I have the urge to whole up for days on end just puttering around our small dusty dwelling provided by one of the local schools. I don’t mind admitting that I wouldn’t mind traveling via an RV cross country on a whim with my brood in tow. I’ve always had a hankering to see Victoria, BC with several pit stops along the pacific highway.
