Since I haven't posted in a while here are some things going on:
  • I'm going to see Seinfeld!! He's coming to Paducah Jan. 10 & I got tickets!!!
  • My dogs had fleas. But, don't fear I caught it and was able to treat it before we had an infestation. They would never have gotten them, but I order my flea meds from Australia & there was a problem with the shipment, which caused a big delay.
  • I'm finishing up another fan bag for a another friend's birthday. All I have to do is sew on the handles and do a lining, but I am so demotivated right now. I'm thinking of giving it to her late.

New Addition to the World of Knitting

Please welcome Courtney to the Wonderful World of Knitting! I went to her house this weekend and taught her how to knit. She is knitting a scarf out of hot pink wool (and doing quite well, I might add). She had a couple of tough patches, and wonky rows. But, who doesn't?

Also, Greg came home Saturday night!! He wanted to see how the new swift works. I think he enjoyed winding the yarn by the look on his face.

Christmas Resolution

I have a Christmas resolution. No more yarn purchases until after Christmas (with one exception for the purse I'm knitting for a friend's birthday). I have too many Christmas gifts I need to knit.

Also, I need to poll all the knitters out there. For my birthday my mom got me a $100 gift certificate to Webs. (Thanks Mom!) Should I wait until there is a sweater or something I really want to knit and use the certificate then OR should I buy myself a blocking board, which I want but don't want to spend $90?

Knittin' On

Now that I got the Modern Romance done, I've turned into a crazy knitter. I finished one project I'm not going to talk about here (Hi, Mom!) and the November sock club socks! This is the first sock club pair I've finished since the first pair in June. They are made out of Frog Tree Chunky Alpaca and are just perfect for keeping my toes warm in the cooler weather. They are especially useful this week since Greg in Michigan for training.

With Ewe in Mind had their Christmas Open House today and I went a little crazy. Look at all the stuff I bought:

Most of this stuff is for birthday and Christmas gifts. But, if you notice, there is a swift. I finally got the swift that I wanted for my birthday. I'm so excited! It's taking all that I have not to wind up all the skeins in my stash.
One last note: I'm going to go see the Last Comic Standing Tour tonight. I'm so excited that my friend Jessica was able to go with me. I've been so looking forward to it and with Greg having to leave for Michigan today, I thought I was going to have to sell my tickets.
