Finished the ponco...

Well, I finished my latest poncho and it is really cute and super bright! I'm working on some monster feet boots for my nephews. The pattern is soooo cute I just couldn't resist. I got it off the internet for free...something that I am all about. I need to start o some baby blankets. I have several friends that have either just had a baby or are due soon. Well, while Conner is asleep I better go get a shower!

out of yarn...CRAP!!!

Well, I ran out of yarn for Meghan's poncho, DAMMIT! I just bought the yarn on a whim and really didn't have the pattern in mind before I bought. Oh well, I will know better next time. Like I said before, I am an idiot...

This is our dog Rocky...Well, we are is humans. He's the only dog in the world that lifts his hind leg to take a crap... But he is sweet and fearless(most of the time) A cat got in our backyard the other night and I think a war was waged by the sound of it. Rocky only came out of it with a scratch on his side. I have no idea what happened to the cat, but at least there was no kitty corpse in our yard the next day. He likes to bark...at everything and everyone. Did I mention he lifts his hind leg to crap? It is the funniest thing you ever did see! He is unique... Posted by Hello

I'm an idiot...

Why don't I ever look to see if yarn has a dye lot? The Bikini pink yarn has one and boy are they different! oh well, I'm to poor to get all new yarn. Meghan's poncho will be sort of colorblocked I guess. Note to self: check for DYE LOTS YOU STUPID IDIOT!!! I have started knitting a wash cloth too and it is going pretty well. I knit too tight but otherwise it looks good.

On another note why do we have to continually pass around colds. Meghan had one, gave it to me, then Conner, now me again and Conner at the same time and Meghan is still coughing like a 30 year smoker! I think we are goin to stay home fo rEaster though. That'll be nice. Gas is to friggin' expensive anyway.

Well, I have to go catch up on laundry...yuck

New camera on its way!

Yippee! My new camera is on its way. I ordered it from good ol' newegg.com yesterday and it shipped yesterday! How friggin' cool is that. I cannot wait. I also ordered some knitting books... Stitch n' Bitch (I have heard so many good things about this book!), Knitting for Dummies, and one on spinning. I have always been intrigued by spinning. It always seemed like such a magical thing to me. I'd like to get the basics and go from there. I have so many things I want to do right now, I just don't know if I have the time it deserves.

Shop till you drop

Well, had a good time visiting my Mom and Dad. It was Dad's B-day on Sun. so we took him out to eat on Sat. Went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bunch of yarn. I got some crochet thread and I'm gonna try that...hmm. Got Meghan's poncho almost finished. Just need ot make the pom-poms. I'm going to start on the other one with the Bright and Lofty yarn (Bikini pink). I found a super cute teddy pattern at Lion Brand yarn website. I have got to make one for Conner! I want to make myself a poncho for this spring, too. I found some really pretty blue yarn and it is super soft. I'll make it kinda airy. Oooo can't wait.
I also printed off some cloth diaper patterns. I'd like to make some covers, too. I am trying to use cloth more often. I just have been feeling so bad for throwing all those disposibles away. I can't believe all the trash they generate! Never even thought about it the first time around. Of course I was young and dumb at the time! I'm working on being a greener mom. Yeaah...Go me!

The Big "2-9"

Well today is the big "29". The last year of my 20's. I feel old...and I sound pitiful. oh well, get over it!!! Going to get some more knitting needles with my B-day money. Going to go to Wichita this weekend. I am going to get a Digital camera for my present. Mom is off so she'll come, too. They live in Pratt and we can use their "Bed and Breakfast" (as Mom calls it). Gotta go to Sam's for stuff. Wanna go to Michael's or someplace like that to look at yarn and of course FABRIC! I am a true fabric ho. Gene says I have more fabric than a Ben Franklin's. It is absolutely true, thank you very much.
