Don't have to work tomorrow...

so I am going to play hookie from home as well. I am going to go to the LYS and cast on for the fingerless mitts in Stich-n-Bitch Nation! I feel a bit bad about this because I know that I should be home with my son, but I really, really want to knit with minimal distraction for an hour or so. When I am home with all of the guys one of them always wants something, and all I want is some peace and quiet.

I am a bit Nerdy...

Soooo Sorry!

Things have been so crazy lately! I cannot believe that I haven't posted in so long, and there is so much to tell!
First, let me say thank you to my Secret Pal!!! What a way to brighten the day! I loved everything in the box. I wish I had taken a picture of it becuase I really should start posting some things on here... Maybe then someone will read this thing...
I think that is the other reason that I have been so lax about posting - I realize that no one reads this...
Second, the puppy that we got is taking up so much time. Not that I mind at all, but between taking care of my son, picking up after my husband, and now walking the dog I barely have time to knit and sleep let alone post.... However, I have gotten some knitting done!
I have finished another scarf (Promise to post a pic tonight) ! Woo-hoo... I think it is time to do something different!
Oh, so I found something else that I am in love with!!! Maryella a knitted & beaded bracelet on knitty.com - Well, back to work, hopefully I will post more tonight.

There is this sweater that I have fallen in love (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTbelleepoque.html )
with, (and I would love to knit it, but I am scared! I don't know if I have the skill to make it look like the picture. Also, before I can make it I need to make a scarf for Russ, something for Ronin, scarf for Ronin's Grammie (actually I just need to finish this one) and I really wanto to make the Sophie bag... Who knows when all that will get done because we just got a puppy last night!!!
Yeah, just thought I would throw that in. I have been begging Russ to agree to a dog since last year, and last night we just went and got one! He is cream colored mixed breed puppy with pale orange ears! He is the cutest thing! We named him Issac, and he loves to lick Ronin in the face (Ronin hates it, and it makes his face really red).

NEUTRAL???

Knitting Class

Last Wednesday I went to a knitting class at my local yarn shop, and I had the best time I have had in the longest time. It was soooo much fun. I am going to go again this Wednesday. We got homework the last time, and I am very ashamed to admit that I haven't even started it yet. I need to start it tonight I really want to have at least half of it done.
The reason that I didn't start was I have been working on a scarf, and a flower for the February Flower exchange.
Also, yesterday was such a nice day that we all went for a walk, and then when I woke up this morning it was snowing... What kind of craziness is that.
I really want to start adding pictures to this site, because I have some of a couple fo's and a very wonderful suprise from my secret pal that I want to share with anyone that is reading this site!!! Hopefully more later!
