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!

No knitting news

I am in panic mode - I have knit a stitch on my knitting olympics project! Arrgghhh... have been to busy at home! R. is keeping me in stitches, being so very sweet, and I don't know what to say except I am grateful! I am slightly glad that he is working tonight. I need to get busy on my project! I still think that I can do this - I just might not sleep until the torch has been put out.
We took our little to see Curious George on Monday night. It was so much fun! I love the soundtrack to that movie! It is great... my fav part of that movie is the monkey. Love the monkey.... he is so much like our little! So curious, and so destructive! Love, love, love the movie - and our little loved it too. He sat on R.'s lap the whole time.
For V day R. got me the soundtrack from the movie. Talk about sweet! I love him! He also got me another cd and a Yankee candle that smells wonderful.
Will update tomorrow and let you know how the knitting is going. I hope that it at least IS going... Wish me luck!

Knitting Oympics

I am going to be in the knitting olympics that starts in just 7 days... I am so excited I could almost pee my pants! I know what I am knitting - it is the felted bag that was in IK a couple issues ago. It was from a book called alterknits. I am going to make it a bit more challenging by adding a huge honking cable or two that run right up the middle of it.
Sorry for the lack of posts, but there have been some technical difficulties here on the ole computer. One is the keyboard keeps trying to put 20 letters when you just want 1. It just won't stop.
There is an event here in Durango called Snowdown... basically just a winter carnival that has a different theme each year. This year the theme is Disco do it. (Next year has something to do with pirates) Anyway, R. (the Big Man) won the bartending competition this year. His drink is the official drink of SNOWDOWN!!!!!! I am so proud of him! I helped him come up with the name - "Grandma's Wet Peach" - a little dirty, and a little cute at the same time... I came up withe the Grandma part because it has Grand Marnier in it... Mmmmm..... Goood Drink!!!
Right now I am knitting on my so-called scarf!!! It is turning out beautifullly -
