It has again, been a while since my last posting. I have been really busy…
I found a house, made an offer which was accepted. Closed on Dec 15th and moved out on Dec 27th. I finally felt I had the place unpacked enough to have a House Warming Party last weekend. Woot! My friend Tony took a bunch of pictures at the party and put them up on FaceBook. If you are on FB you can see a link from my profile page to see. I’ll try to get them up either here or on Flickr for all to see tonight.
Thank you all for the Birthday wishes. I did get two unwelcome gifts for my birthday though. My daughter tried to make me some cupcakes but the oven decided it didn’t want to work. Repair man is coming on Saturday to fix it. The second thing is I had my annual mammogram done on Monday and the hospital called me saying they need to do more testing on my right side. As soon as I hung up from them, my doc called to make sure I setup the appointment at the hospital. The appointment is today at 1:30 and I’m really nervous. They want me to wait there for the results vs letting me go home to wait for the results. Not something one wants to hear on your birthday.
Anyways… On to my Knitting…
Off My Needles:
Daughter’s Butterfly Garden Socks: I finally finished them. :) only took me almost a year to do LOL with the cable work on them, they just kept getting pushed further down the list of things to get done. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of cables and they are not really hard to do, just I’m really slow at doing them.
On My Needles
My year long afghan (which is taking more than a year to complete, LOL): Just have to finish up one block and then do the crocheted edging.
Rebecca’s Plain Sox: Started another pair of socks for a co-worker who asked me to make some for her. One of these days I’m going to make myself a pair to keep. LOL
Brown sweater: I cast on a plain stockinett (sp?) sweater using Nina’s Sweater class instructions – so far only the waistband is done.
I have a few other projects but they have become UFOs at the moment. I plan to finish them soon though, one at a time…
I also plan on casting on for my first lace project – a lace shawl within the next month or two.
Well, that is what I have been up to lately…
