Profile Information

Location
Newark, New Jersey
About Me:
I'm a single mom to a handsome boy nicknamed Dino (full name Konstantinos). I am a full time stay at home pretend wifey and a full time student, or as I prefer to be called a Domestic Goddess. I attend NYU where I major in Humanities with a double concentration in Creative Writing and Literature, because as a displaced New Yorker, I simply must over achieve.

I learned to knit from my mother when I was around 5. I didn't pick it up again until I became pregnant with my son, and since then I haven't stopped. Most of my projects have been for Dino and my sister Sammy. I used to be an acrylic junky, but I soon realized that if I am spending all that time to knit a project than I'd like a better quality yarn. I try to now use only natural yarns, wool, alpaca, cotton and bamboo are my favorites. I am also learning dress making, albeit by myself. I have a few patterns, and wish to find a perfect 1940's style day dress.

Tired of Potter.

 This was Dino on Saturday afternoon.  No not Halloween, but November 12, 2011, en route to the Quidditch World Cup.  What?!  You say?  I'm not even joking about that.  A bunch of college kids with beer in tow (thank god I dropped out of school) decided to make Quidditch real.  So me thinking that it would be…

A New School Year (year 4 of teaching for me, year 3 of school for Dino)

Bye bye summer vacation.  Poop.  This is Dino and a shark.  We didn't actually get to go into the aquarium, but we'll go next time I suppose.

 

Now it's back to school.  I wanted to get a new sweater and blanket done for Dino for the first day, but that didn't happen.  I have a sleeve and a half of the…

Looks pretty doesn't it?  I finished it a few day's ago.  I don't have lace wires or enough blocking boards to fully stretch it out.  It's the…

To Hot To Knit

It's 106 degrees in Newark NJ... this is Simon on the fire escape panting.  I'm poor I don't own an AC. And I like to imagine that it makes me loose weight to sweat so much.  Don't worry I have a fan for Dino, he told me the other day, "Oh mommy, I'm sweating so much!"

 

 

I have been so…

EV: Welcome home to Dino! I know you're happy to have him back, and that you will have him back in shape in no time. Kids really prefer having guidelines. They'll test continually until they find out what they are. Good luck getting out of the city! I grew up in the city, but I adore nature. It fulfills my spirit! Happy knitting! --P

Thanks for the comment! I'm thinking about making one for my sister and niece, them seemed very impressed with mine. By the way my sister goes by Sam (short for Samara) and my niece's name is Emily. Have a great day!

EV: Thanks! It wasn't that hard, unless you factor in the loss of sleep, food, family time and showers! If you just knit the pattern or do it as a KAL, it's actually pretty easy. Happy knitting! --Peggy

EV: I appreciated your encouragement! I had a great time, and was happy to come in third. The competition was stiff. It was a great project. Happy knitting! --Peggy

Hey EmilyVictoria, I just wanted you to know that you are not insane! 4 projects at once is just proof that you love yarn and gorgeous patterns, that's all. I can remember when my husband was deployed in Afghanistan and I was doing 6 projects at once. It was 2 pairs of socks, 3 scarfs, and an afghan. I did get them all finished in a decent amount of time, and learned a very valuable lesson about how much I can do at once without going completely insane. That's why it's so hard not to just put my socks aside and pick up a new project. I'm so good at that! But my resolution for 2008 was to actually finish my projects I started, even if they had been put in time-out for being naughty.
Anyway, sorry for babbling but I just wanted to say Thanks for the encouragement, and more.
PS. your baby is beautiful!

Emily Victoria: Here it is-- http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V7_toys.html. It's called "A Felt Flock," and was designed by Bev Galeskas. Because it's felted, you probably could throw it into the washer if it gets dirty. --Peggy

Hi, Emily Victoria! I put the felted sheep into my photo album. I think this would make a better toy for a small child. I'll try to dig out the instructions and see if there's a place you can get a copy. Otherwise, I can send you a copy. --Peggy
P.S.: Dino is so cute!
