I'm back! Finally!

So, I'm finally blogging again. FINALLY! With all the changes in my life this past year, I barely have time for anything! No worries, though... I always make time for my knitting. Well, today is my birthday (yay!) and my mom,, took my hubby and I out to breakfast and then took me to Borders where I got the one knitting book that I've been craving for AGES!!!!!

This book is ama-ziz-zing! absolutely one of the top books that I own! I'm so excited! I've already read the articles and patterns front to back. So exciting. Happy Birthday to me!
Anyway, so Christmas just passed last week, and to entertain myself on the days that the snow storm kept me from making coffee (I work at Starbucks), I knit till my hands cramped up, all presents for my co-workers; sad to say that some are getting late presents, but they're greatful just the same:)
Anyway, here's a couple of gifts I made:

Btw, these pairs of gloves are my first attempt at cable knitting, and it is awesome. I really enjoyed making these gloves, and they're so easy and warm too!I got the pattern (Cableback Fingerless Gloves) from Second Nature Design, and they're amazing!

I got this pattern in Rebecca Magazine, and I know the Melissa's gonna LOVE this top!

Anyway, I think that's enough blogging for right now, but I PROMISE that I'm gonna find time to do this alot more often. Till then, safe knitting!
