How to recognize a crazy knitter girl!

This is Steffanie! We work together :) We had a lot of fun yesterday taking silly pictures with my phone! You see it was very cold here yesterday. Okay it was very cold for Portland, 26 degrees is cold for here! So Steffanie put on her hand-knits dropped the kids off at school and headed to work! Well when she told me that she had on no less then 4 different hand-knits, on her upper body alone. I told her we must get a picture for the blog! So on went the knits and for our silly little photo shoot. So you can recognize a crazy knitter girl if you see someone wearing more then two hand knits that don't match! Okay, maybe they are not the crazy knitter but they must know and be loved by a crazy knitter :)

So I was driving to work yesterday with the hubby in tow (we only have one car and he needed it later so he had to drop me off) and I slammed on the brakes and made a quick u-turn in an apartment complex parking lot! My husband kind of freaked out because I was turning around and said "What are you doing?" I kept repeating "I need to take a picture!!!!!". LOL, needless to say he thought I was crazy because he didn't spot what I saw! TOADSTOOLS!!!! LOL, I had never seen one in real life and they are sooooo cool. I had to touch them because I thought they were fake! Seriously I was looking around like I was on Candid Camera :) When I got back in the car after taking photos he had to admit that they were pretty cool! I am sure lots of you have seen them in real life but I hadn't and I love stuff like that :)

Warm Hats :)

Okay, so I have a couple of silly selfies of me in knit hats! The first one is a hat I finished in Cleveland and I took a quick picture in the hotel. I really love this hat and I will be teaching a class with the pattern soon.
The second picture is of me as I headed into the woods this morning for my 4 mile walk. It was cold and I needed that big hat!

Lost it!

I finished test knitting a hat recently and I lost it the same day I finished it! I just can't believe it! I have looked and looked but it is not to be found. This is the only pic I have of it so sorry about the crappy cell phone photo! I have finished a couple of other hats and some socks also but I just haven't had the time to take pictures. I will let you know if the hat turns up!

Hi everyone :) Sorry I have been quiet! I traveled with my boy last week and I never seem to be able to blog from the road. I am back now and excited to be back at my exercise and knitting. Believe it or not I don't knit a lot when I travel. I finished some socks. I will have pictures hopefully tomorrow and I finished a hat but that was about it. Today I went for a nice walk in the woods and saw some critters and I thought I would share :)
Sorry for the phone pics...... Happy Adventures, Trish

I have had a busy week and have not gotten much knitting done! So today I am going to sit my bottom on the couch and knit :) It is overcast and cold and I have the day off! I already walked 5 miles this morning in the dark woods and I will run a few miles this evening before dark.
I came home from the woods and made my boys yummy banana raspberry muffins :)
Now it is time for knitting before all this Halloween madness happens :) Happy Adventures, Trish

Winter Frost

A few weeks ago I told you all I was designing and a gave you a sneak peak but I didn't tell you what it was...... Well today my new pattern has been released at the Bee. This fun scarf is knit with Tikal a soft fluffy Alpaca yarn. I loved knitting it and it was super fast! The pattern is one of the shops Top 10 Holiday Patterns and is available for free with purchase at the shop! I might just have to make another one :) Oh and yes it is completely reversible!
