web stuff

I finally got approved for the Knitting blog webring!

And I made another KnitPicks purchase today. Some for me, some for my SP.

I got some knitting done this weekend, which is shocking considering how busy we were! I got one front side of the baby bolero from the Debbie Bliss book that I'm working on for my daughter, and started the second side. These are the last pieces before I can put it together! I'm going to finish it this week. I am! Really!

nothing new

We just got back from our cruise, and we had a blast! I'm so glad we went, and that Nathan and Celia had so much fun. We spent lots of time running around, looking out the windows at the bubbles, and eating. I really need to go on a diet. Starting tomorrow, really!

Not much new on the knitting front. I took some WIPs with me, but didn't have any time to work on them. We came back home early because of Wilma, we were going to stay in Miami for a few days but decided it would be better to get home way before she made landfall in FL. At least we did get to spend some time with my aunt/uncle/grandmother, so that was great.

Hopefully will have time to knit this week...I miss it!

My fingerless gloves are finished! I love them, and can't wait to start wearing them. It's starting to get a little cool here, so those days are just around the corner. I managed to finish two projects in a week, my socks and my gloves. Now I really have to start working on the baby sweaters before the kids outgrow them!

I'm thinking of what project(s) to bring on the cruise. Any advice would be really helpful! Just 1 more week to go until we sail away!

My first pair of socks are done! The one on the left foot is messed up a bit. I made the heel too long, so it gaps a little and I ran out of yarn on that one. But I substituted with a similar weight yarn and it looks ok. The right one is PERFECT. I'm so excited!

it's been too long.

I realized today that it's been over a month since I have been to my SnB. I started my new job, and that was crazy, so I didn't go one week. Then another few times, Nathan had meetings late at work so I had to stay with Celia. Then I was sick, and today I had to stay home to help Nathan with Celia, since he worked all night last night, and got in a 2 hr nap before heading off to work this afternoon. Poor guy is exausted, and he's working again now.

I've been working hard on my socks, and they are almost done. The second one looks WAY better than the first one, but it's ok since it's my first pair. I'm hoping to get them done tonight!

Yesterday we went to take my daughter to her gymnastics class, and we arrived early so we decided to check out the library nearby. I walked into the non-fiction section and right away found all the knitting books! I found 5 that I wanted to check out, including Scarf Style, and a book on Xmas stocking patterns. I never get that lucky! And today I went to Michaels to pick up some yarn for Celia's christmas stocking. I ended up with some Red tweedy like woolease, and a dark green to match it.
