Good news, it is fun.. bad news, I'm getting no knitting or crocheting done!
I have a granny blanket that needs to be done by April 5th! But even when I do get a chance to work on it, it still doesn't seem to be getting any bigger?
Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon when working in the round?
It grew so fast in the begining.. but now.. nothing?
Anyways, my etsy store will be open as soon as I get the card for my separate account. I will post a link as soon as it is up! :)
I have a couple colorways ready to go, this is what I will be selling in the begining....
Astronomical (Thanks Angie)
This is my first colorway EEvil. I miss you Carol ;(
Here are some "in process" pics for your enjoyment. :)
Sooo pure and innocent
ahha corruption in the midst
Here is EEvil (burgandy Louette Gems w/ black stripes dyed onto it) being knit into socks :)
These are past due!! They are for one of my ssisters. Her b-day was the 20th.. :( Sorry, but I see you all the time, I never see Jeni, so her wedding blankie needs to get done first, but I promise, I will finish your socks before I start anything else. :D
Oh, in non-yarn news I started replacing all of the light sockets and switches in my house last night. I got about half of them done, and the other half will probably get done tonight.. or am I going to the mall to get a tux for my son since he has a prom to go to next weekend that he just told me about on Tuesday?? umm I'll figure it out later.
But half of my sockets and swithes have been changed from beige with no covers to white with stainless steel covers!! They look really good, and you don't have to bend the prongs on the plugs to get things to stay plugged in! Yeah, I probably should have changed these sooner. hahaha
My ssisters and I are going on a ride this weekend, I will take pics!

Sorry, I won't break it again... I hope :)
So, I'm sorry if your blog lines is going crazy saying I've posted like a hundred times today!! I found a way to post the videos of my friends riding the mechanical bull! I think they are above.. or maybe below this post.. they are floating around somewhere.
Anyways, I actually have been doing stuff that is post worthy, I just haven't posted it. I'm sorry, I'm a bad bad blogger.
My camera is full of pics, the ones I have actually downloaded are about a couple weeks or so old. Lets see what we got :)
OH, first, my gorgeous niece turned one last Saturday!!!

This is when she was out here last Sept. I can't wait to see her again.
My hubby also had a b-day! He's a St.Patrick's day baby :D
My MC had our annual support party. There is a video of the band either above or below this post. (there goes blog lines again.. ) The band is UPDOG, they are very good.
We had a pool tournament this year, I didn't get a pic of the winner, but here's some of the action :)
Here are some pics from the party.
A good time was had by all. There have actually been many, many more parties and runs since ours, (WOW that was back in FEB.. I am a bad blogger!!) I didn't take any pics to share though.. sorry.
I have been knitting and crocheting. I finished some socks for my friend Jeni.
I have also been working on a granny square blankie for her wedding April 5th!! I need to get going BIG time.
There is a pair of socks for my ssister Linda on the needles too. I am making them out of some Louette Gems that came burgundy. I dyed it to have black stripes :) They are turning out very punk!! I love'em, I think I'm going to have to make another pair for me someday!!
I am doing these two at a time on two circular needles. I like this technique, but you have to make sure you check the pattern first, if you need to move stitches around at all, you could have more trouble than it is worth!
On other yarn news, I have been dying a bit of yarn. When the colors have names, I will post the pics :)
Enjoy the videos :D
