Crocheting like a person possessed!

Okay, they say the first step is admitting it so here I go. Hello world, my name is Nikky and I have a crochet problem!

Been super busy these last few weeks. Shopped for a new couch and love seat, in a lovely brown leather. Very happy with our comfy purchase. Also been crocheting like a mad person! Managed to crank off a baby blanket in about 2 1/2 days. Starting another one, and making a blanket for Aaron's mom's birthday. If I don't have carpel tunnel by the end of the month it will be a small miracle or a freak of nature...could go either way with me!

Have also been obsessively watching the winter olympics. I also have a winter sports addiction. Now don't misunderstand me here, I am obsessed with watching them...not participating in them! I cheered on so many countries it was crazy! I was all over cheering on Norway and their crazy argyll pants. Also cheered on Americans and props here for your very cool snow boarding first I thought you guys were just nuts wearing jeans down the hills! In my vast experience with snow I have learned that jeans just don't keep you dry and warm! I even cheered on Britian and was totally embarrassed for that poor girl whose pants split wide open on the track! Trust me I wanted to crochet her something a little more warm and sturdy but my friends all insisted that I would not get it done it time! :) Really I wonder why every time I watch the Olympics we as humans can't all get along like we do for those two magical weeks? I think the world would be so much better if we could...but then again I also think the world would be a better place if we were all allowed nap time every day!

Condo is almost ready for sale. Carpets are clean, things are de-cluttered and just some touch ups and we are ready to go!

Can't wait until all of this craziness is done with so I can get back to blogging on a more regular basis!

Missing you all tons



  1. The olympics were a lot of fun to watch. It was so nice having them so close, in Canada! Felt like they were just around the corner. Was great when you won the hockey gold!

    I've been knitting like crazy myself. Hubbie says I need to put it down occasionally and do some gardening. :-)
    I will, at some point, but knitting socks is so darn fun!

  2. oh wish I could knit! I seem to be all elbows though! LOL!
