Knitting for Colder Weather

Hello Friends,

How are you all doing? I am currently working on a couple new knitting projects which are almost done.  I was knitting a hat out of Loops & Thread wool and it's coming out nicely.  I then started knitting a scarf using Bernat wool.  The scarf I am knitting is called "lock stitch scarf" and I am using the pattern on the Bernat packaging of this wool.

I have been busy this month also with the start back at University and my senior internship! I also went to a wedding with my boyfriend last weekend and had a great time!

I hope you all are doing well and thank you so much for dropping by!

Take care,

Lisa :)

Hello Friends,

I am so sorry I have not been posting lately I haven't forgotten about you! I have been working as a nanny full-time just for the summer and also taking a Quebec History course online for a credit for school so I have been very busy.  I know, no excuses but those are mine for today :) I wanted to pop in to wish all my Canadian followers a Happy Canada Day I am very proud to be Canadian and I love all that our country is about and I have been learning more about the beginning of Canada through my Quebec history course, it is so interesting.

Knitting Socks for Mother's Day

Hello Friends,

Yesterday was my first day off since I finished exams at school and completing my first year at University.  I am so happy to be done for the summer break. Now I just have one more year to go and I am done! Yesterday I worked on knitting my sock and I will knit more again today.  I have wanted to post and visit other blogs so much while I was in school but I needed to focus on my studies and my co-op.  I am so happy to be knitting and blogging again!
The socks are going to be a gift for my mom for Mother’s Day, so I hope I can get them done by then.  I am using the VeryPink Knits video on YouTube again to help me knit them.  It is so helpful to follow the steps along with the video, and I recommend if you are just starting to knit socks for the first time to look at Danielle's videos to learn how to knit socks with magic loop needles. Here is a photo of the progress so far I am just at the point where I am turning the heel:

I knitted alot yesterday while watching Teen Mom OG. That show is so addicting! I am glad they came back with another season of the old cast members to see how they are doing and get updates.  They were teen moms and had their babies when they were sixteen and it shows their struggles and accomplishments through it all.

 I hope you all are doing well and I am looking forward to checking in to see all of your blogs and catch up!
Thank you all for visiting my blog again.

Take care,

Don't forget you can always follow me on Bloglovin' to keep up with updates from my Blog or follow me on Instagram where I post photos from my blog.  thank you!
