The Pink Socks

Hey People, well, we just got home from Dakota's funeral. I'll post about that later. Too tired right now. But I did want to post about my FIRST pair of socks!!! I finished knitting them yesterday and I finished weaving in the ends this morning in the car. YAY!!! I love them. They are a beautiful pair of ankle socks. I'm going to wear them to work tomorrow!!! So...on to the pics! Enjoy!

Well, that's all I have the mind set to post right now. I'm gonna go veg out on the couch with my Little Man, Davey. Watch some cartoons. It cracks me up to watch him watch Tom & Jerry! He laughs SO hard! It would make my Graddy (my dad's dad, he passed away when I was in high school) very happy to know that. He always loved watching cartoons! Happy knitting folks. Thank you, that is all.

The Viewing

Hey everyone,
First off a big thank you so much to all of you who have offered your sympathies for my family's loss. And another for keeping us all in your thoughts and or prayers. It really means a lot. Again, thank you.

Well, we've made it through the viewing. I am sure that Matt and Shannon are just numb right now. Dave and I took the kids yesterday. Luckily the kids spent most of their time there playing with the other little kids. After about an hour Dave took the kids out for ice cream and then home. I stayed and got a ride home with my mom and sister Liz.

The room was STUFFED FULL of pictures of Dakota. You could feel the pride, joy and honor that Shannon & Matt felt at being Dakota's parents! Dakota was laid out in his boy scout uniform shirt and in a green coffin (his favorite color). Later in the evening the Boy Scouts had a ceremony for Dakota. They presented colors at which time EVERYONE in the room started to cry. One of the leaders talked and did a reading. Then they presented Matt (who was Dakota's den leader or whatever that is called) & Shannon with the troop's flag. They also played taps. It was all very touching.

They have set up a fund or something in memory of Dakota to help kids who cannot afford to go to attend BS camp. I'm not sure of the details. They are holding a breakfast on Saturday to raise money. I will post more details later. I am hoping many will attend.

Hectic Here I Come...

Hey everyone, I thought I'd put up a little post today. I don't know that I'll be able to post anything this week. And I'd hate to leave you all hanging! Okay, I'm sure you don't HANG on every word I write! God, who reads this thing besides my Stitch N Bitch homies? Anyway, it's gonna be a hectic week, at the very least a hectic couple of days.

Let me just say, before I forget....um, IT'S FRIGGING HOT. Okay. So my sister is coming up from Bloomington tomorrow (it's her birthday, Happy Birthday Liz!!!) with my mom (she flew up from Miami). They are gonna stay the night in a hotel so that they can attend Dakota's viewing tomorrow and his funeral Wednesday morning. I am super excited to see them. They just came up for a visit about a month ago, I'm NOT super excited as to WHY they have come home. But having them here will help my kids get through all this.

Leslie, 5, doesn't understand why someone so young would die. When talking about what happened to Dakota with my sister Carmen the other day, Leslie kept asking when he would come back to life. That's a tough one to explain. But, I did the best I could. It's a hard thing for her to wrap her mind around. Little Davey, 3, almost 4, has not asked many questions. He just knows that Dakota was young, too young. Not like Great GrandMa. Only older people die, right?

So, while we have to take the kids with us to the viewing (no babysitter) we won't let them stay too long. At least Dakota's younger brother Dalton will have a couple of playmates.....maybe they can keep each other feeling good. But kids always know what's going on, more than we give them credit for. I think.

Alright, I have thoroughly depressed myself. I'm hoping I don't break an ankle in the new heels I got to go along with my new outfit. God I hate heels.

Did I mention, since I can only think of Matt and Shannon tonight, that this has been an incredibly hard past couple of years for them. Shannon has another little boy, Duke. He's about 7 months old now. I think she was about 2 months into her pregnancy when they found out that Matt had cancer. He had to go through chemo. He is doing fine now. Or as fine as I'm sure you can be when you have to bury your little boy.

And about 6 years ago Shannon's only and younger brother Jimmy was lost from us due to an overdose on heroine. When he overdosed his girlfriend and best friend dumped him in his truck, windows up, doors locked, not even a block from the emergency room!!! He wasn't found until the next morning. I don't even know how hot the inside of his truck got, it was a very hot summer night. He might have been saved from the overdose but the brain damage was too much. After 2 weeks on life support we had to let him go. I was there when he took his last breath. Shannon had to leave, she had to go to Dakota.

It really just kills me that one family has to go through so much. Dakota was the oldest boy in that generation of our family to die. Just as Jimmy was the oldest of my generation. And my Uncle Jimmy was the oldest of my mom's generation. That's just crazy. You always here this kind of stuff on Oprah or some such TV show. Okay, so I'm balling my eyes out now. But thanks for letting me vent. I'm going to bed.

Memorial Weekend Picnic

Hey everyone. It is HOT! I mean it's 8:11 pm and the temp is 84* HOT people! Dave's dad took some pics of us out in this heat and let me tell you....I am a sexy bitch in these pictures! Um, that's called sarcasm. Anyway, even though I HATE having pictures taken of me, I'll share.

Here we have most all the Lambert clan.....Adam (BIL), Jen (SIL), Austin & Tristin (nephews), Dave (hubby @ the grill), Me (the sexy bitch in the red tee), Leslie (my daughter right behind me), Davey (my son at the front of the picture), and Val (MIL, she's gonna LOVE that I put her on my blog!). You can't see Nicky, my niece, she's directly behind me. And of course, as I said, Ray (FIL) took the picture.

Here we have me talking with Dave. And you can see Nikki, she's a teenage dive! ;) And there is little Leslie again. Notice leslie is smiling at the camera. She is quite the little model!

Here again is me and Dave, notice his lovely tattoos. That arm isn't finished yet. I love his tattoos. We're feeling the need to get some more done. I have 2 already and Dave has another on his other arm. Anyway, you can also see Nikki and Leslie again. It seems Nikki and I are both REALLY enjoying Ray taking our picture ins the incredable heat! Notice we're making the same face! LOL

In spite of the heat I did get a little work on my sock done. But it wasn't much. Knitting and extreme heat don't mix well! Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend! Happy knitting. Thank you, that is all!

Some Pictures

Hey everyone, well, I have finally managed to get some pictures of all the goodies I got with my Piddleloop Small Project Pouch
A cute cute cute zippered pouch. And a lovely little tissue holder.
A ton of buttons! And some cards that will be perfect to go with knitted gifts!

Also, here are my Pink Ankle Socks. I'm almost done with the 2nd one! I should be wearing them before the weekend is out!

That's about it for now folks! Happy Knitting.

Update on Dakota

Hey everyone, I just thought I'd post a little update about Dakota. Apparently he died of scarlet fever. I have yet to talk with my cousin or her husband.

Viewing and funeral will be held this Tuesday and Wednesday. We have decided to keep our children from attending eigther of these services. My daughter, age 5, keeps asking when Dakota will be coming back to life. She was greatly effected by my GrandMa's passing last summer and I don't think she or my son, age 3, will be able to handle things. That's it for now.

Dakota Zacharias

Hey all, no knitting news for tonight. I just wanted to dedicate a little post to my dear cousin's little boy, Dakota. If you live in NW Indiana or surrounding areas you may have heard about the kankakee valley schools closing today. Dakota died yesterday at the age of 8, very suddenly. He was a very spirited little guy! We all miss him very much. Hug your little ones, whatever age they may be, closer tonight!

Knitting Update

Hey all, not much going on today. Just another rainy day! Yesterday was kinda nice. We didn't have to go anywhere or do anything. NICE NICE NICE It's still rainy AND I have to go out to work today. I'm not really in the mood, I'd rather take a nap! Maybe I can get over to the In-Law's to take a few pictures of my pink socks. And, if I can keep my memory in tact for more than a few hours I will remember to get some pictures of all my Piddleloop goodies.

So here is a rundown of what's on the needles and what's not!

On the needles....

1. Harry Potter Scarf. I need to pick up another ball of crimson yarn to finish this.

2. Pink Sock #2. I am working on the heel flap. I should be done with the sock sometime tomorrow.

My "To Knit" list....

1. The Diagonal Homespun Baby Blanket for my niece, Alaina. I had a really good start on it. Then, my son decided to play with the needles and pulled them right out of all my hard work. I had to frog it all. So I need to get that going AGAIN!

2. Dave's Block Blanket. He says he no longer wants it. I've only got 6 blocks done. I must admit, it is boring to work on. I saw some fun stuff in that Maison Dixson book. Maybe I will do something from there.

3. Since I dumped that Branching Out project I need to find something to make with my 500 yds of DK weight alpaca/wool yarn. Suggestions please. Keep in mind I'm a novice knitter people!!!

Well, I guess that's about it. Oh, wait, Lost last night ROCKED BABY, ROCKED. Teehee! I better get the kids some breakfast before they try to eat ME! Happy Knitting Folks! Thank you, that is all. (No, that's NEVER gonna get old for me. If you're not a fan of The Office, you should be!)

Devastation! Total Devastation!

"What the HECK are you talking about?", you ask! Well, my computer lives in storage. I miss it. But, we have the use of my Dad's computer here. So no big deal. Yeah right! I'm not a computer person here so just bear with me! My father has installed new Windows software, I think. And now ALL my stuff is gone! All of it. Pictures, favorite links, knitting patterns. My world has been turned upside down! *SIGH* It's not the END OF THE WORLD but it sure does suck! I mean SUCK!

Okay, that's it I have to get off this thing before I start to cry. No I'm not really gonna cry, I'm a bit of a drama queen. But you know what I mean! So, please, leave me kind comments. I'm fragile. Oh and send me patterns, links, and whatever else you thing is great people!

On a happier note, I have a good start on Pink Sock #2. Casting on was MUCH easier this time. Practice DOES make perfect! Huh, who knew! Thank you, that is all.

1 Down, 1 To Go

Hey everyone! I just finished up the first of my ankle socks. It looks good! I'll post a picture as soon as I can. Maybe I'll wait so you all can see the pair. Anyway, I did forget to reinforce the toe with the same thread that I used on the heel but oh well! Not a biggie.

Last night was the LAST episode of Charmed. It was WONDERFUL! God I love that show! I can't believe it's over! Now I'll need to get all the seasons on DVD. Dave will love that! Of course, when does he EVER like the same TV/Movies that I like. More NOT than often! LOL

He did enjoy Nanny McPhee when we saw it at the theater with Leslie and Davey. He even sat and watched the DVD when I bought it the other day. It's a great story. It's adapted from a book, I believe. Note to self: Read that book. Of course, I love Emma Thompson. I just watched Sense & Sensibility last night. If you will remember, I am also on a Jane Austen kick.

So that's about it here folks. Not a whole lot going on. Time to go start the 2nd ankle sock. Happ Knitting. Thank you, that is all.

By the way, if you don't know why I always say "Thank you, that is all." It's because Dwight from The Office always says that. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that show. It's hilarious! Okay, now, THAT is all. ;)

Lovely Day

Hey all! It's a beautiful day today. So wonderful after what seems like ages of rain! My son wanted to have a picnic today so we did just that. Dave and Davey went to the store to get stuff to grill, hamburgers and brauts. MMMM Dave cooked everything to perfection and we all ate lunch (at Dave's parent's house) outside in the backyard! It was a nifty little mini picnic.

Since we're over here at the In-Law's I thought I'd take advantage and take some more pics for you all to look at! So here are some new or newer additions to my stash.

I picked up the Fiber Trends Felted Ballerina Slipper pattern a couple weeks ago. I can't wait to get a pair of those babies on my feet!

My beautiful and handy Small Project Bag from Piddleloop. Jen filled the bag with all sorts of goodies! She's great like that ya know! I MUST get everything photographed so you can see it all.....pins, cards, a lovely zippered pouch, a kleanex holder. I love it all!

Here is my latest win from eBay. Some lovely Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in Vera. I love it. I'm also looking to get some in Havaii, it's beautiful!

And here, my friends, is my pink sock. This is some more yarn I won from Fearless Fibers on ebay. This guy, as you can see is gonna be the first of a pair of ankle socks. You may notice that there is something almost sparkling in the heel of the sock. That's some thread I'm using since this yarn is 100% merino wool. My fellow knitters tell me this will help the sock last longer. And hey, who doesn't love a little sparkle in their socks! I'm almost done with this sock. It's sock #2 and it's turning out well! I think I MIGHT have it done tonight! We'll see! That's it for now folks! Happy Knitting! ;)

Knitting Blogs Ring

Hey all! I am a proud new member of the Knitting Blogs Ring. I am so cool! Yes, again, I am aware that I'm a dork. Anyway, if you're reading this because of my being a member of Knitting Blogs.......Hi, hello, welcome to my world! Stop by anytime. Leave a comment if ya like!

And now on to my day......I started the morning out with a meeting with a Higher-up. My boss's boss! Hahoe! It went well but I'm not gonna dance around just yet! That's all I'm gonna say about that at this time. *grins and laughs an evil laugh* But honestly, I'm only trying to get what's mine.

Anyway, moving on....in knitting news. I have got a good start on sock #2. This one I'm actually gonna be wearing. I am making a pair of ankle socks in the Peppermint Pink 100% merino sock wool I won from Fearless Fibers on eBay. Oh! and if I didn't mention it already.....I won yet ANOTHER auction for some Lorna's Laces Sheperd Sock Yarn in Vera. So that's about it for now people! Happy Knitting!

Oh! and Lost was awesome last night! Tonight, ER baby! Oh, AND the last episode of Will & Grace! *sniffle* That reminds me, there's only 1 episode of Charmed left. You KNOW I'm gonna ball like a baby when it's over! *sigh* Thank you, that is all.

Wednesday, May 17, 2006


I tell you what people, I am having more trouble getting my 2nd sock started than I had with my very first sock! Sheesh! I'm just gonna grin and knit through it though. By tonight, late, I will have some progress or I am gonna kick myself in the butt!

I frogged my Branching Out Scarf a little bit ago. I'm just not getting into it. It's not a hard pattern and I think it's very pretty but I just can't wrap my mind around it to work on it. So I am gonna put my 8oz/500yds of handpainted wool/alpaca blend DK yarn to better use. Um, anyone have any suggestions?

What I need to do is make a wrap of some sort. *Wondering if my wool/alpaca would be enough to make anything remotely big enough to be called a wrap* I am IN LOVE with Erin's Lady E wrap. I tell her so EVERY time I see her wearing it. It's a work of art!

It WAS beautiful out earlier today. Then we heard thunder and the sky got a little dark but nothing much happened. Well, it's raining now, not too badly. The temp fell from 74ish to 56*. I talked to my sister out in Vegas, it's 100* out there! Good God! Happy Knitting Folks.

Thank you. That is all.

I am bored

I am....craving crab puffs from Fortune House
I want....a new car, preferably a minivan
I wish....that I would win the lottery, a huge jackpot!
I hate....where I live.
I miss....the apartment we had on Beech St.
I fear....bad things repeating themselves.
I hear....the birds tweeting in their cage.
I wonder....who wrote the book of love.
I regret....wrecking out little Ford Focus.
I am not....a very good driver!
I dance....when there's no one around.
I sing....all the time to the kids. Mostly christmas carols.
I cry....when I watch TV. I get very caught up in the stories.
I am not always....very patient.
I make....people feel good through massage.
I write....lists. I love lists. It doesn't even have to be anything that I'm gonna do or buy. Sometimes it's just fun to daydream a list.
I confuse....myself, it happens a lot.
I need....a new car!
I should....clean the living room, as usual.
I start....lots of projects.
I finish....at least HALF of those projects!
I tag....anyone who happens to read this.

Can't Knit AND Talk

I met up with some of the girls....Erin, Jen, and Tara, to knit at Barnes & Noble today. I had a great time. As usual, I was running late but not so big a deal. So I start working on my Branching Out Scarf, I knit 2 rows and then DOH! I've messed up. I decided that's just to hard to work on and gab so I put that away (I'll fix it tonight, AFTER the kids have gone to bed). Then I get out my Harry Potter scarf. "No problem there", I think. I can work on that and talk all day! Somehow the 2 remaining rows I needed to do before switching colors turned into 6 rows! 6! So apparently I can not talk and knit....no matter what! So I have 2 projects to do some fixing on tonight! But it may get put off, I can't miss the season's last episode of Grey's Anatomy!

Happy Knitting Folks

Brain Fart

Okay, what was I thinking? I have no idea. I am gonna chalk it up to quick glances at the book store. You're probably wondering what I'm talking about......

Before I ordered my BGK Lesa and I would visit whenever we went to Barnes & Nobel. And while visiting I had glanced at the Mimosa Wrap pattern making a mental note that it took 270 yds of sport weight yarn. How conveinent, I had just found that lovely 500 yd skein of handpainted alpaca/wool yarn on eBay. Cool!

Ah, NOOOOO. It takes 6 270yd skeins to make the wrap. I need like 1100+ yds more! Hellowwww! Is there anyone home? Apparently not! Anyway, I love that yarn I will put it to good use I am sure!

And as Dwight (The Office) would say, "That is all."

Pictures Galore

Hey Gang! I got my pics done!!! I am so proud. I actually tried to post this yesterday but Blogger was giving me trouble! GRRRR Anyway, I had a lot of help from Little Davey. He loves cameras. Unfortunately he was in a sour mood for most of this afternoon. I told him he could help me, his mood brightened up!......

Leslie also got into the camera action. She tells me she is gonna be an actress/singer/model! I don't doubt it!

In fact, I think both the kids are looking for a career in modeling!

So here are some pics of my sock! It's a little long for me but I'm very proud of it!

And here's a shot of all my new stuff.....
My new knitting tote from Kmart
My new PINK wannabe crocs
My handpainted alpaca/wool yarn that's gonna be the Mimosa wrap from BGK Which by the way, I came home to find a package from Overstock.com on the porch. My Big Girl Knits has arrived! I gotta say, I'm having a great week!
And yet again, my sock!

Tuesday, May 09, 2006

I Lied.....Sorry!

Well, I promised to have a pic posted of my wonderful sock. I didn't have time to get to my In-Law's today to use their digi camera! UGH! I hate not having my own stinkin camera! I will DEFINATELY be over there tomorrow and I will get a pic up even if it kills me!

I stopped by Kmart today and noticed they had a sale going on in the purse section. FYI, I can not walk past a purse section. It's not in me to do it. I think it goes back to my Mom. She has always had a ton of purses. While I am super picky.....I just can't not stop to look! Anyway, they had some really cute beach totes. I found a great blue one with a zippered pocket inside and a connected, matching zippered pouch. It was just over $10! How could I resist? It's nice and roomy!

I must let you all know that I won a battle today. I LONGED to bid on some lovely yarn today, I have been watching it all week. It's a mohair/alpaca/cotton blend with some sparkly nylon in it. Oi. I didn't bid! I have already won 2 auctions. Darn eBay, it is a joy and a pain! But....I did get that great new tote bag! So the day wasn't a total loss!

I was hoping to come home to find my Big Girl Knits sitting on the front porch but no. Drat! Maybe tomorrow! Happy Knitting!

Exciting Times People!

Hey all! Lots going on lately, really, I mean it this time! I am extremely happy to report that I have finished my first sock! That's right, I HAVE FINISHED MY FIRST SOCK! I am extremely proud of myself! Especially since I finished it up all by my lonesome. Well, Lesa aka Yarn Goddess did help me on my way quite a bit! The sock was made with some acrylic yarn that the Yarn Goddess gave me so I don't think I'll be making a mate for it. I've decided to frame it in a shadow box! Aren't I a dork! Yes, I know! But won't that be cute! I'll fame it after I've shown every stinkin person I know! LOL

In other knitting news, I just recieved my yarn from Fearless Fibers. It is fantastic, so beautifully dyed and soft! I will be using it to make the beaded shawl in the Big Girl Knits book. I also just won some really pretty sock yarn from Fearless Fibers! It is being shipped out this morning so I know it will be here lickety split. If you haven't checked out the little eBay store.....go now! She's got some great stuff at really nice prices! You can come back and read this later. Go, get, go on!

Oh! you're back! Did you find anything you can't live without? I do have to say, eBay is addicting. Mix knitting AND eBay, watch out people! There are 2 more auctions I have my eye on. I know I probably shouldn't but you know I will! TeeHee I just wish my BGK book would get here so I can look for yarn to do some of my projects with.

On the BGK yahoo group someone posted a link to some cafepress knitting t-shirt logos and whatnot. The have a lot! Go check them out! That's if for now gang! I'm gonna get a pic of my sock up tonight! I promise! Happy Knitting & Happy eBaying!

Friday, May 05, 2006

Did I mention I am a Sock Diva!

Okay, maybe not a Sock Diva but boy! aren't those little things addicting! I've been working on my sock like a mad woman and I made it through the heel turn and past the gussets! Now I'm working down the foot and will most likely be finishing it up tonight or tomorrow! Yeehaaah! I will post a pic as soon as I can. (Note to Self: Get a new stinking digi camera!) I'd like to thank the Academy, The Gods, and most of all the Yarn Goddess herself, Lesa! I'm that proud of this thing people! I show it to EVERYONE, no kidding, ask my co-workers. They, of course, Ooooo and Ahhhh over it but I'm sure when I've walked away they think "My gosh, it's just a sock!" They have nooo clue kids! I'm on a knitting high baby!

In other news, I have won my first yarn auction on eBay! I am quite pleased! Um, it's a 50/50 blend of alpaca and wool. ALPACA, I love that stuff. Anyone wanna trade some of that for a massage or two you just let me know. The stuff smells like....well heaven, okay it doesn't really smell like anything but well...yarn!

I also ordered my copy of Big Girl Knits this morning along with a couple of Jane Austen classics.....Sense & Sensibility and Emma. I am really in love with these movies and the books are almost always better. And it's always fun to gab with the Yarn Goddess about these books!

The kids have their first swim lesson tomorrow at Duneland Health & Wellness Institute. We are all very excited. We got them each a pair of goggles today and they just got out of the bath with them....ya know, the HAD to test them out! LOL We also got them new swimsuits for this season. Leslie got to try a few on in the fitting room and she thought that was the coolest. You'd think she'd never seen herself in a mirror before! Silly little Loufer!That's about it folks! I'm now going to try to keep myself from ordering anything off of KnitPicks! Wish me luck! Happy Knitting!

Hump Day

Hehehe, I just like that title! Anyway! It's been a while since I've posted. I know you are all hanging on the edge of you seat wondering when oh when will I post. Be still, I am here! I've been working on my sock again. I was waiting for a get-together with Lesa so she could show me what comes next (Turning the heel & Gussets). But I got tired of waiting for our schedules to synch up and I am boldly going where most all knitters have gone before! I had made it through the heel turn and joined my sock back into the round but it wasn't right. So I frogged back and started over with my heel flap. So I'm back down to turning the heel. It's quite fun learning and doing something new!

I got a little more work done on my baby blanket for Alaina and my HP scarf for Davey. But I have to say, working on that little sock is addicting! If I'm not working on it I'm thinking about working on it! I have been reading too. My "Stitch N Bitch" book and "Dates from Hell". A book with short stories in from some of my favorite authors....Kelley Armstrong and Kim Harrison.

The Big Girl Knits Yahoo group that Lesa started is going well, with 109 members in only a week! I have yet to even order my copy of the book, damn bills! What's a girl to do? Pay them I reckon! So that's about it for now folks! Happy Knitting!
