I have 2 of the middle size models myself. My journey started 10 years ago. I was in between college classes, met a boy and poof.. my life changed forever.
The past 10 years are now a blur... I have forgotten about the sleepless nights and the hard aches of a fetus kicking my bladder. Now, I am brought back to that time.
Not because I am "Prego", " expecting", "with child", "got a bun in the oven".. no, I am not pregnant.
Why cant people just say pregnant, that is the medical term, is it not? Whats with wanting to compare you growing uterus to a jar of pasta sauce? I really do not understand that term. Pregnant women are a bit odd. Was I really that dense? Surely not. Back to me.
I have forgotten all about the woes to be pregnant... after all, my boys are 9 and 7 years.
That is, until someone invented the black hole I like to call social media.
Now, not only do I know of 3 girls that are "prego", 4 more have recently gave birth to their jar of pasta sauce. Good for them, that is great. Really. Deep down I really could care less about all their troubles, the food cravings, the belly aches, the back pain, the whatever is wrong with them on that certain day. Really, good for you.
The problem I have is that I read/ see/ hear about it constantly. One girl even complained because she could not get another piercing because she was "prego"... oh, boo hoo hoo. I am so very devastated for you, not. Again, Really?? Your going to complain about that?
Let me tell you about my problems.
I had my sons relatively easy. Bam, nothing wrong in that department. In fact, during my past marriage, we had decided we did not want more children. Two were enough, by we, I really mean, my ex husband. I was on a certain type of no little human control... I had that removed roughly 2 years afterwards. Shortly after that, my ex husband left. No worries, there were pills for that sort of thing. I took the pills, until I met and married my wonderful husband. He did not have any biological children, I wanted more, so no pills, no nothing, just exploring. Here I am almost 3 years later. Rounds of fertility medications. Numerous trips to the doctors, tests, more tests, and even a surgery. Still not pregnant. My youngest told me last night that maybe I was meant to just have him and his brother. Perhaps he is correct. If that happens to be the Creators plan than okay. But why do I have this urge to mother another child? Why does my body not work properly? Why all these questions?
And surely, Why on Earth do I have to listen to others grip and complain about being "prego" or having a screaming infant. If they did not want this, why do the act that causes the condition? I rather not have to listen to others complain about something I have longed for these last 3 years.
Woe to me.
On the brighter note, if you happen to be one of these people, there are lots of lovely yarns out there to make up little human clothing and accessories.
I personally like bumble bee, Vanna white, ilty, and red heart with love. Then again, there is the lovely world of cotton, which is great because of its wash ability. Everyone knows that little humans make alot of messes. Mine sure do.

Good morning everyone!
I have been working on a alteration to the stocking pattern I found on The Yarn Box. So far I have done the magic circle, around for about 7 sc, 2x sc in next.. Trying to make it where there is enough stretch to fit my feet, but not fall off or have too much of a gap between stitches.
I really love the yarn by bumble bee. It's a rainbow color with little bit of sparkle, similar to the consistency of the red heart shimmer. Later I will try my hand at mixing the two.

So, I have been posting like crazy, thinking its on my blog. Come to find out its not on here.
Apparently I have been posting on my google plus account, instead of my blog.
Let's just say I am rather upset right now.

chain 3, pull tight. ( makes 2 chain) jump back and single crochet 6 into the first stitch.
Continue around making 2x sc in each til you have 12 stitches.
sc 1, 2x sc in next, continue 18 stitches
This is a bit tighter than the magic circle and doesn't have quite as big of a gap in the middle.
would recommend for animals and such.
Here I am, getting a reminder to blog from my yarnie friend. I seriously doubt anyone wants to read about my ravioli breakfast...
I have been working on this cute little owl lovie for a friend, that's kept me rather busy lately.
So far I have done a magic circle (6) increase around for the body, decreased to every 5th. then increase again for the head.
I am rather horrible to forget to write down my patterns. I have taken photos though and will try to post them here.
Today has already been hectic and I have yet to pick up my hook and yarn... I will attempt to finish at least the eyes of the owl today.
I have been working on a blanket for my mom as well, so reluctantly I will have to do a few rows on that also.
Happy hook day,
