Better late than never, I suppose.

I finished Jennie's other "fuzzy feet" slipper. I'm waiting for them to dry so I can send them off. I'm still shaping them, si I will take a picture before I send them. Her birthday was the 9th, but I always seem to send her gift off late. Jenna's birthday is the 30th, so I'll just send their gifts together. (does sending Jenna's gift early, in any way make up for sending Jennie's late?)

I've also been working on Nate's sock, pretty much so I can just be done with it.

I had meant to bust out the shrinky-dinks yesterday, and work out some buttons, but with Jess home sick, that was a no-go. Hopefully today. Although I have no ideas as to what th buttons should look like yet.

I need to knock out all these mittens and sockmates out so I can work on some bigger WIPs that I really need to finish up. If anything, they are just taking up too much room.

And I have learned that one advantage to teaching others to knit, is that you can send the home with an odd ball of leftover yarn, and thus freeing up more space for new and exciting stuff.

Truth be told, I cannot wait to move onto an big project. I bought myself the Rogue pattern a while back , and it's been tempting me. The only thing holding me back, really is I cannot decide on the yarn. I guess when the right yarn comes along I'll know.


  1. E,

    You my dear are a nut.

    What's the weather forecast for this weekend out there? Trying to figure out if it's detrimental to my life and that of my car to come out there.

    Love ya,

  2. I'M a nut....you're the cashew! :)

  3. Ok, this might post twice... but the first one didn't show up.

    I knew you teaching others to knit and therefore sending yarn home with your students was part of your evil plan. ;)

    Also could you send me a weather report for out there? I need to know the weekend and Monday. I'm trying to see if I'm nuts to attempt a trip out.

    Oh and yes, better late than never ALWAYS ;) (wasn't my cardigan supposed to be a present like a year ago.. i'm ok with that.)

    love ya,

    What did Andy call him? The "son of Israel"?

  5. Yes, yes hi did. Except I think the exact wording was "Our Son of Israel
