First Post!!

I'm 23, a knitter, a mama, and I work from home in a sales position. I have picked up my knitting pace in the last few months, getting a lot of yarn and using up a lot of it too. My son turned one in July and is embracing his toddlerhood. I'm working on a sweater from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tots. I have finished the Big-Foot Bunny from her Baby Toys book. It looks like a freakish Tim Burton stuffed animal-from Nightmare before Christmas.
I made my dad a pair of wristwarmers for his birthday. They are tan, from Bernat Satin Sport. I hated the yarn when I began making them, but it grew on me as the project wore on. I might make my husband a pair for when he works on his 1992 red Camaro-project car.
We recently got a dog-Chance. We got him from the dog shelter near us. He is an adorable Shepherd/Chow mix, approximately 3. He gets on well with Charlie-son.
My childhood dog, Riffie J., recently passed away, actually 2 weeks ago. Its been really hard on my dad and me.
Lots of knitting to do for the holiday season. Making a mohair/lace scarf for my mom out of Rowan Kidsilk Night.
