long time no post
There hasn't been a whole lot of knitting happening... I haven't even finished my mom or sister's purses for Christmas presents. and I forgot to mail the twins hats. yeah, I just realized that this second. that sucks
anyway- I have lots on my plate for break- there's a paper to be written, and an audition to get prepared for, and a job to get. so sayonara for a bit.
oh yes- I saw Memoirs of a Geisha - it's a beautiful movie, and sticks to the book very well. I find that most of the criticisms of the movie are also features of the book; with the exception of the Chinese actors playing Japanese roles.
Happy New Year!

Finals are OVER!
Saturday I went to the Chronicles of Naria- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Love it. Loved it as a kid. I hope they make the other 5 movies- I especially love the last one.
Sunday was the guild's Christmas party and swap, I made stitch markers, brought a needle holder, needles and some yarn to give away,
And I picked up a mini niddy-noddy, some wool, cotton and a few magazines and 2 books. Yay Swap!
anyway- I'm off to work for a bit- but there's knitting tonight!

195 yards of Handspinner's Dream in a worsted weight ... Baby Alpaca from Alpaca with a Twist- delicous stuff. I had spun up a bobbin full about a month ago, and decided to take a few hours off tonight to finish the other bobbin and ply. isn't it gorgeous? It's really more cream colored, but soooo soft.

long time, no post
lately there has been very little knitting happening lately.
maybe a few rounds on a Xmas present. For M.
that's all I can say, since she obviously reads this blog. ;)
There seems to be a wave of babies coming up. and by a wave, I mean 5.
Sister #2- due Dec. 17 or so. blanket and booties done. sent.
Sister #3- due sometime in May. blanket is started- about 5-6 inches in. I hate knitting with this yarn (simply soft- it's good for crochet though) but I'm alright with the pattern.
Cousin, DIL of Dad's only sister... whose house my mom went to in her fabulous Big Mexiko jacket just a few weeks ago. They loved the jacket, marveled at my knitting skills. The jacket I started for this baby was off. It was diagonal. after looking at the pattern and the picture of the jacket, I realized that the pattern has the ssk on the WRONG side of the YO. the damn thing looks like it was knit for a sideways baby. the worst part is that I thought it was a little funny that the picture was different, but I figured the pattern was right. Woe is me.
Professor- baby girl came into the world a few weeks ago. I cannot give her anything until grades come back. Although the paper is due tomorrow. I'm thinking booties. and maybe a hat.
friends in AZ- I'm so excited for this couple, so I'll probably make something for them too.
But boy, do I wish I had bought a knitting machine with my 50% off Joann or Michael's coupon.
Obviously, there is no knitting happening here. Nada. Kein. Nyet.
The horrendous slanting baby jacket has sucked the joy out of knitting momentarily.
But I'll be back. December 17th baby. Dec 17th.
