Just stuff - no knitting content

Haven't had time to knit in awhile, and I am really bummed about that. I really wish that I had more time in the day! We have been taking the little to the pool almost every night... Right this very minute he is climbing on my back like a little monkey-boy... He really cracks me up! Other than that I have been trying to spend some time with R. because he has some time off work, and we rarely ever get to spend quality time together. We have been having alot of fun and not really doing anything but being bums together. It is really nice!
Still working A LOT... that eats up sooo much knitting and family time. I really just need to win the lottery so I can travel, and not have to work for the money - so hard for the money!
More later....

I think I can... I think I can... I think I can...

I really do think that I can finish the socks... Am still working on them, and they are getting almost to the done point on one sock. Then I will need to start the second. I already have plans to make more. I think knitting the heel is an amazing thing - to watch it start to form... Simply amazing.
Things have been very busy here (at work, and at home). At work the season is just starting, and there are a million things to do at any given moment. I decided to take ten minutes and write this though... At home we have been having a great time with the little, but he has periods of crankiness every day.
The knitting list has grown over the last few days (things to knit)
-finish socks
-Finish HG scarf for DH
- Sweater for the little (Christmas)
- Cabled beanie for Kelly (for May)
- Socks for dh
- Socks for the little
- Socks for Cindy (for Christmas)
- Socks for Kelly (for Christmas)
- Hat for Tim (for Christmas)
- Cabled fingerless gloves with a thumb for me!

Notice I am at least thinking ahead for the Christmas rush. I would really like to get this done by July - yeah right!!!

My So-Called Scarf





I finished the scarf this morning - Right before I went to my first sock class. I started a sock using the magic loop method. The class was great, and the other ladies in the class were great.

I must say I love this scarf, and I got compliments on it at the yarn store today. It is the first knitted thing that I have worn to the shop.

Knitting Olympics...

Okay - I set a goal for myself of knitting two skeins on the felted bag today, and I just finished one. I realize that to finish the second one before I go to bed tonight might mean that I stay up late.... And I realize that I might not stay up late... I am tired already, and it is only 8:21. Maybe I will make a cup of coffee. I haven't had any today, and maybe if I do I can get that second one done. Will take picture in the morning and post it so as to show progress. Good Luck to ME!!!

Life gets in the way.

Sometimes life gets in the way of knitting. There is no other way to put it. I didn't get very much sleep last night - so little sleep that I have felt slightly sick to my stomach all day. As soon as I post this I am going to cast on for my felted laptop bag. I swear. No matter how tired I am I will get half of it knitted this weekend. Partly because I need it to put my new laptop in. This thing is BIG, and I can't seem to find a bag I like to put it in! They are all black... I wouldn't mind brown or green - but not black! Anyway, time to hit POST - and get casting on!
Oh, feel free to leave a comment to let me know that someone was here!
