I'm tired of working on socks. So I decided to pick up another UFO and see if I could make headway. Its a baby outfit. No more for me thank you. It was actually started for a friend whos little one is now a year. Its a 9 mth. I've heard tell of some who put special things like this away for when they actually have a grandchild. Maybe. God help Lissa if she presents me with one anytime soon.
So STR ships next week. I hope I get my sock groove back as I don't want to fall behind. I have enought UFO/block of the months that I need to finnish with the quilting. Than again.... there's always retirement in 30 years.
Happy Days :)

I eat ckn - but only not on a bone.
There isn't anything cute about a grown ckn.
I love the YH chicken pictures. I wish I had been able to make a chicken.
Funny how when you get a bunch of people together the absurd and riduculous that one would not entertain the thougth of any other time
becomes the coolest.
I wish I had made a chicken.
I wish I were at camp.
I wish I was with a bunch of other knitters getting my knit on.
Thak goodness for my cyber friends who completely understand this.
With Love to you all --- Karrie

So he put it down and gave me the money so I can buy more fiber therapy. I was SO pleased. He was right. I would have just killed the plant (have many such dead specimens to confirm this) but am soo excited. New Yarn. He figured it out. On His Own. There's always hope.

A friend of mine posted some wonderful bags she picked up, great for holding sock projects. I mentioned my just passed obsession with Longaberger Totes (pictured left). A very nice co-worker gifted me with the blk courderoy with tan/blk check handles. This led to a frenzey of purchases off e-bay. As they began to arrive I explained to my DH that I spend less buying these off e-bay than I would have if I had driven down to Longaberger (gas $$), bought bags ($$), bought lunch ($$) and stopped at a yarn/quilt store in town ($$). So all in all I saved him money. He loves the way I tell him I'm saving money while I'm spending it ;o)

I tried to teach myself socks on circulars with little progress and lots of knotted yarn. So I broke down and looked for help. One class in my available time was full. No others were offered. Undaunted, I booked a private lesson.
So, Today I learned socks on circs. Not so bad - I have 1/2 inch of cuff #1 done (yea yea big deal) however, no knoted yarn and progress can be seen. Unfortunatly, I have to work tonight so progress won't be seen tonight either.
However, Most Importantly - I GET IT!! Soon I will be 2 at a timing it!
By-the-by, purchased addi turbo's -- nice -- also Addi Lace Needles - AWESOME!! - Currently using one of each because they are differnt colors and easier to tell if I have the right needle in my hand.
Happy Knitting and Hello to beautiful weather! Karrie
