Well, Carma,

It looks like I just *might* have some leftover yarn to donate to the weeble blanket. Not sure how much of the variegated, but I have A LOT of the dark plum color. (which matches the dark plum in the variegated quite nicely, considering this plum has been buried in my stash for some time.) NOTE: the previous picture of Jess' blanket doesn't not show the dark plum color. It only has the lavendar.

I have cast on the second mitt. I think mine will be fingerless. Nothing wrong with your fingers, my dear, but after trying on all the ones I have made thus far. I think I prefer to not have them.

Speaking of mitts, that was my surprise project, that I made from the last of my Manos del Uruguay. I sent them off to Cari. I hope she likes them.

I hoping to finish the second Carma mitt this week. and Jess' blanket for Valentines Day.

Get this, my Mom wants to take Jess Friday night. Do, you know what that means??

If you guessed that Nate and I will sit around asking each other what we'd like to do until we just get some take out for dinner and go to bed, well, you're probably right. Like I've said before, I have not a romantic bone in my body.

I have a stitch n bitch tonight. I'm kidnapping new mom-to-be, Jill, and making her come with me. muhwa-ha-ha-ha! Too bad I think that Tara won't be able to come due to a toy meeting she has to make. (or do I have my days mixed up?)

Also, I think we are moving ever so closer to moving. Nate's working on his resume, and has a few contacts in the Evansville area. He has even started sanding the hall floor, and making plans to do all that stuff we have been putting off to make this place look a bit nicer. (read: painting over the "little Mermaid room") Granted it's not like we'll be moving next month or anything, but it looks like this year, possibly. (Don't you love how I am so reluctant to commit to anything?)

I'm trying not to make myself crazy by not planning ahead, (especially if I don't have to) But I just keep thinking of all the stuff I'll need to do. Most importantly, getting Jess' schooling in order. The repairs we'll need to do. Getting this house in order and sold, etc. Finding a yarn shop within a reasonable distance. *gasp* what if there isn't one??

Check the time. Insomnia strikes again.


  1. Oh my goodness!!!!!!! Are you kidding me? I feel like I just won a prize! Woohoo! Thank you so much, Erin. I cannot wait to get the mitts. I'm sure I will LOVE them. :) I'm doin the happy dance!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    And I love the first of Cara's mitts too. BeaUtiful! :)

  2. Hmmm... What can you and Natey do on Friday night.... Oh crap. I don't have a romantic bone in my body either..

    Oh wait! I work in an office full of woman... maybe I can get a little assistance here.
