Knitting Stuff

Okay, so I plan on having a section on knitting stuff. I will be going to a knitting class today to knit a 5-hour baby sweater.  I am taking the class from Torey at the Knit Affair

A copy of the pattern can be found here. Please keep in mind I suggest places you can find patterns but I have no affiliation with any of these sites other than Googling the name of the item and finding the patterns.

I will post pictures after class.

Who Am I?

Well this is my first venture into the blogging world. My husband has his own blog, a way to express himself, so I wanted one too. I picked the name MexicanMarta because that is my nickname at work.  Why?  I knit, sew, cook, craft, scrapbook and on and on and on. So my peers call me Mexican Martha Stewart (minus the criminal record of course).  I prefer the term Chicana, but Chicana Marta didn't sound quite right. So anyway, MexicanMarta it is.  I hope to use this blog to post ideas for knit projects, scrapbook projects and all other kinds of home crafts and creative ideas.  So I hope you enjoy visiting my blog.
