Confessions of a Nerd

I am knitting and watching Star Wars. If that isn't nerdly to the rest of the world I don't know what is. All I can say is; Nerds Rule!

I did it!

They are all done and given to their owners. Several good reations including the useage of the items imediatley and the day after! The only person who was not happy (or was he?) was a kid who I will use a code name for (security :) Brian. He only partly opened his present. I don't understand. I said that my little sister knit on it and he asked if it would blow up in his face. He was jocking as only a boy can and now he won't acknowledge the hat :\ hmmmm.... I don't know about that boy.

Christmas Gifts

Many knitters have a problem knitting christmas gifts beacuse of the hard pressed deadline. I, however, don't. I like the fact that I have a motive and a time when it has to be done. This year, every one in my youth group is getting a hand knit christmas gift. That isn't saying much beacuse our youth group is really small. The knitting is gratifying beacause it's going to people I love.

Knitting Socks, a Rant, and a Book Review.

Okay, so; I just got my first sock knitting book. It's called "Getting Started Knitting Socks" by Ann Budd. This book is fantastic! I really shouldn't have done it, but I started to knit a pair of socks. I really should have been working on Christmas presents, but I couldn't resist the temptation! The designs for the socks in this book, she has socks in lots of colors and gauges. Some of the colors aren't my personal taste, but hey, I'm a metal head. But the best thing about the book is, it has… Continue
