Easter Weekend...What a cold icky day... I had a shortened workday b/c I am scheduled for 6 days this week but I felt cold, cranky and tired. I was going to post my new pics of WIPs and the newly finished Egg Cosy but I have to wait for John to vacate the other pc b/c that has all my digital camera software and stuff to upload to here (yeah, i know - why not just install everything on the laptop too...well, 2 things: Celeron processor and hard drive space...*grrrr*) and quite frankly, I am just too cranky to do it right now.
The good news is that West Virginia survived another round in the NCAA tournament and that makes me happy. Is this terrible? I'm in my 30's, yet I'm thinking of co-opting my mother into crocheting Martha's poncho for me *big puppy dawg eyes* b/c I really want one, but I have too many WIPs and honestly, while I think I'm pretty good @ Easy-to-Intermediate knitting, my mother kicks ass with crocheting so even my most beeyooteeful knitted piece pales in comparison to her everyday crocheting. (Also it would only take her like 2 days to make one and it would take me 7 months LOL) God bless the Asian Doily Queen of Orange County! Serious, Mom rocks. She's so cute and everyone loves her and her cooking. She bakes an unbelievable banana walnut bread that is totally a religious experience *drool*
I think I will give her a call...
HAVE YOU CALLED YOUR MOTHER/FATHER LATELY?
*rats - phone is busy, which means my little sis is online LOL*
Okay back to my yarn. I just swapped 2 extra Rebecca magazines for 9 skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and extended my stash... Midge from knittyboard.com is so fantastic -hope she enjoys the magazines & patterns as much as I do! She's so sweet - if you have the chance to make contact with her, you won't be disappointed.
I decided to frog the purple Homespun poncho, and start over b/c I didn't like how the finish was coming out. I think I will make this poncho in a ribbon yarn so that it has a distinct stitch character, not just squiggly stockinette... one of the things I've realized is that with Homespun, stockinette and garter look almost the same *sighs*
Welcome to my blog - all knitting, all cats, all the time ...come in, get warm and share your thoughts and pics --- it's all good! Mewsings, scratchings, and a long nap in the sun....
