Just a quick note to let you know I'm still around. I have joined the "Socks that Rock" club and have started the first sock of 2007. I'm also working on some hand warmers, a sweater for my newest grand niece Riley and a shawl....
Never a dull moment More to come now that I'm BAAAACL

St Patricks Day !!!

Happy St Patricks Day !!!

I'm still knitting on the same items as before, guess I'm just not as fast a knitter as I thought. I am preoccupied with NCAA basketball tournement though, and running the "Pool" at work. Some of the games make it hard to concentrate on the knitting.
Last night was Knit Night at HANDWEAVERS We made little socks that made a book marker. Amazing how hard little things can be, plus there was a "little" confussion with the instructions. BIG GRIN

The bus trip is on for STITCHES MIDWEST on AUGUST 11th 2006. Sign up is at the Handweaver Shop and seats are limited to only 35 people. Cost is $40. If you need more details contact me, Kathy Byrnes or the shop.

Well, it's time to head to Handweavers for the Friday afternoon Stitch and *itch group. Have a safe day and may all your yarn be magically beauticious.........

Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday

Well, it's been awhile, but I'm still here. Had my Women and Weights class again tonight, and I'm not sure it's the best thing for the Knitters Tendonitis...I'm lucky I'm able to type tonight, let alone even try and knit. Maybe it's the weather and the arthritis helping a little...
I'm still knitting on my sweater, and a baby hat for the shower on Saturday [The hooded sweater will be a nice gift for when he is born 8-)]

I'm still reading...have finished Mary Mary and Crossbones...both very good. I just started an Anne Perry WWI British mystery. Tomorrow is my "Knit Lit" group and we are revewing "The Historian" Next month's book should be a little lighter than the last two.

Well off to bed, with my aching arms.....

Olympics Over

The knitting Olympics are over, and alas, I did not finish the hooded baby sweater..
My tendonitis is slowing getting better, and I am again knitting on my sweater for class tomorrow night.
I did not go to Square Class tonight, as I went to the gym and did some much needed exercising. Too much knitting isn't good for the "Bottom" line...

Hope all who finished enjoy posting their Gold Medals...I will strive to do better in 2008.

It dosen't fit boo hoo

Well I just finished the Side to Side vest, and I'm a foot too short. After all the work, it's too long for me and my larger sit-apon. I'm really bummed, but maybe it's time to learn how to streck, and just go for it. Or I could give it to someone tall who it does fit. Or maybe I should get a torso extentsion done.

On another note, today was the last day of "Butterfly Lace Shawl" class, and I did not finish...I would like to add for the record that I am injured and will more than likely not finish my Olympic sweater either...There I said it. My injury is tendonitis in my right arm, I'm sure due to too much knitting, and not enough streching, massaging etc.

I hope to rebound and finish my shawl now and contemplate what to do with the vest.

Comments anyone????
