The question of the day

Just a quick question.
Has anyone ever taken their knitting to the bathroom with them?
I have for the first time this morning, Not sure if it was the right thing to do, But I did. And while I was in there I was thinking of how many other of my fellow knitters has done the same thing.
Reason being - I have not even touched Tempting and I checked over with Jenn and she is going to dedicate her whole day to completion. Ahhhhhhh! I really have to finish this project, and it's not going to get done if im on the computer blogging. Im turning it off so I don't get side tracked.

May Vacation

It seems like our vacation plans in May are falling through, Im not sure that there is going to be as many people as it was in the beginning, Not sure what's going on. So I take it upon myself to drag Mark some where on the east coast instead of the west coast, Answer to any questions is I hate to fly, I don't mind where we go,But I do need a vacation and we are going in May I don't want to hear any if ands or butts because that's when I took off from work and that when we are going.
I had a long day and Im so hungry and tired. So after I eat something beside chocolate chip cookies, I will take a nap and blog back later to update all of you about the Linus blanket.
later Gator.

This is for a post for Dani

">Dani is the best computer gal I know she changed my blog around. It really needed it, as I was surfing through everyone else's blog I was getting so mad because I knew I couldn't do it, because I don't know a thing about HTML. I shouldn't say can't do it, you can do anything you put your mind to. Yeah yeah I heard that so many times in my life.
But here's to Dani. She's the best.


Linus Blanket... I listened to Dani and got off the straight needles and switched to circulars, I should have known, But I didn't have any 8 circulars that were non wooden, So I ran to AC MOORE again, and purchased some metal Susan Bates.Sz 8- 29" and they are fine. I am having so much fun working on this blanket- so much that I completely forgot about Tempting II. I have to pick it up today some time I still have like 2" on the body to go, and then for the tricky part. Im not so sure that its that tricky but it sounds like im gonna need some help.

Just a great photo of mark when he was with his band. He is in the middle. He's a hottie, he's my hottie!
Dont ask why I put this picture up. I just felt the need because he looks so good in it, and I was just listening to one of his songs that came up on the pod. Posted by Picasa

Remember the green yarn Beney was winding up

I couldn't resist, Not sure what im going to do with it yet, My first thought was a great striped hat but winter is almost over. But I will put it on the list of projects to do and remind myself when I am getting the itch to go and buy yarn, that I have a project waiting to be knit with yarn and all. I really have to stop the yarn buying. I need therapy, I really do. Posted by Picasa


I started last night when I got home, I really like working on this. The pattern is a great one. But it took me time to get the right needles. I really hate using wooden needles, They stick and I feel like it takes me too long to get across the row, and finally I got around to trying my glass needles that I never use to knit anything with, and the stitches slide lovely.

Valentines Day

I can't believe it has been a year since I have been blogging, Holy Crap! It went so fast.
Well today was a great day. I love easy Mondays. My boss, Dr.C called me into his office today to talk about me getting the boot...... No im kidding. But he did say that the office wasn't so busy like when I first started working there. so he just wanted to cut me down to 1 day (Monday) and I was like wow that is exactly what I wanted in the first place, being that I was working every other 6 days a week. But I was glad to say no problem. But in the next few weeks I will be there on mon and wed so I don't know when im gonna start just Mondays. What ever I was happy. I don't know why I was happy, because Im not sure when it's gonna happen. Any way I think he just wanted to know that he can tell me when he doesn't need me to come in on Wednesdays. In thee end Im fine with it.
It's almost Valentines day. Yeay. I love when all the holidays pass and it's no more pressure. I just got Mark a card. We don't really go crazy on this occasion. I got what I wanted already and that's him.
Im starting to get sleepy.
I am going to sleep now.
Happy Valentines Day !!

More Snow

My Wish Came True. I love the snow. I love it, I love it, I love it. Posted by Picasa

Our little home

Mark is shoveling a path for tomorrow for now so that we are not too snowed in in the morning. Posted by Picasa

Tempting progress

And at last, Tempting 2.
I've been so distracted with being on line and not getting enough knitting done.
But I did frog and cast on to 180 stitches, With 160 on the needles when I first started looked too small. I went with my instinct, I hope im right on this. Posted by Picasa

Snow cat

Winter ride in the snow.

We took a quick ride to DD at about 9:30 pm.
Mark noticed the sign and felt the need to take a picture of it with me under it next to the trash can.
We wanted to see how it was on the roads. Not to bad at that time but slowly getting worse.
I can't wait till tomorrow morning a fresh coat of snow to take great pictures of.

OK. I came home on Friday after work and in the mail box was an Amazon box addressed to Mark. So I waited till he came home to see what was in it. Well it was supposed to be my valentines day gift but I couldn't wait to open it. 5 whole discs to watch this whole weekend. There is no better time for it to snow. Posted by Picasa

My own knitting Olympics

Because Im an Idiot on HTML codes And I don't know how to put buttons on my blog and all other stuff. I need Dani to help me. I know I keep saying that, I will get to her house some time soon.
But I am starting tempting 2 from knitty,Thanks to Jen, she gave me the idea when I saw her in grannys. And it its calmer that I am using, and I love using it, and that's a problem, Because I will use it when ever necessary, and then that means a lot of money. Ahhhh !!!!!! But it is so delightful to use and expensive, But so worth it to knit something up with it once in your knitting life.
I will keep you updated with pictures as I keep knitting during this wonderful BLIZZARD we are expecting to get this weekend, I cannot wait. I love the snow and I love this time of year. So you can imagine how disappointed I am this winter and the spring like temps. YUCK!
I love the Snow I hope we get 2 feet of snow. Posted by Picasa

Finishing up !

As I finish the big print sock, I watch pink panther on the lap top while eating a Taco Bell Supreme Crunch Wrap, Those thing are so delicious Dont look under the table at the mess. Posted by Picasa
