Umm, yeah, so ok, I've got a PROBLEM


I told you, I told you. Me and yarn... we go together like Laverne and Shirley. Lookie what I bought. Shut up, no one ASKED you :p. I picked up some Manos for the Cabled Shrug from Interweave Fall '05. Down below is a foto of my progress so far. The Premiere is for the whirly twirly scarf (can't remember the name of it) scarf from Scarf Style. The Stork is for Pismo hat found at www.marniemaclean.com . Two EZ books, 2 FiberTrends patterns, a set of needles and I special ordered 5 other FT patterns. *sigh* Why do I do it to myself? Is there a 12 step program for yarn huffers? I don't even have my Knitpicks order yet. The cabled shrug is coming along nicely though. I'm through 2 cable repeats. Only 7.5 more to go. My dearly departed husband said... I mean my dear sweet husband said that he's going to buy some custom labels that say "Future UFO" and pin them to my new projects. He thinks he's soooo funny. I am going to finish this project even though he believes it has UFO written all over it. LOL. He's such a dork. Pay no attention to him, I try not to. snicker.

My weekend consisted of buying yarn, molesting yarn, buying pattern books, molesting yarn, starting my new soon to be finished project. I have goals people. I'm GOING to finish this project in less than 2 weeks. Mark my words... moving on. Sunday we woke up at 7:30... people get up this early usually??? We went and helped friends scrape paint off their house. Thank you, thank you! Yes, we can step away from the knitting and EQ2 for a little while. The knitting followed me though. T-man (hubby) would have taken EQ2 along, however it doesn't play well on my laptop. hehehe. Anyway... we played our first game of bridge. The girls won. Woo hoo! Interesting game. I think I'd like to learn more about it, but it is one of those things that I think the more you learn, the more you need to learn.

Oh, oh, oh. My 50 pack of pregnancy tests came in the mail today. I'm neurotic. You should know this by now... anyway, I like to test often. Ok, so I like to test psychotically. No, I'm not pregnant. I checked. LOL. You can buy them cheaply in bulk so you can take a test for no reason, any reason, or because you are bored. hehehe.

Here's the photo of my shrug. It isn't laid out prettily so you have to use your imagination a little. A friend of mine made those stitch markers. Aren't they too die for? He also made my husband a set with Celtic knots and purple and green stones. Since T-man can't knit I might just steal them for myself. Oh, his wife made me a set of beautiful ones for my birthday a year or two ago. They have sterling silver roses and freshwater pearls. I like bling bling for my knitting. I'm such a blessed girl!!!

I was out in the garage and I saw these bright lights in the air and this thing was twirling around and then it landed in a bin....I'm calling the FAA and NASA and see if they got anything on radar....

NASA said all they have on radar is one giant TARD!

Yep, almost half way done. You should see one of their new colorways! Beautiful blues and greens and white. Looks so springy. Thinking about making a felted bag out of it.
