Casting On Another
Sunday, July 29, 2007
That's right. Another Calorimetry. I seem to love these things a little too much. At present though I can only knit little things. I have to get another set of circular needles for the bathing suit. I need more yarn for my bag. I have the yarn for socks but not the needles. -=giggle=- So a calorimetry it is. I figured I would make a black one that matched the poncho I am going to be wearing a lot in the fall.

Today was a nice day. I did a couple of things I wanted to do this morning. I started on the new HP book and made it to Chapter 7 before we had to leave for my mom's house. Her boyfriend is leaving for Afghanistan next Friday (he's a load master for the Air Force). So we thought we would go and see him before he leaves. We went to an awesome Mexican place and had a wonderful time. Tonight we rented True Crimes: Streets of NY (video game) for Grim and "The Covenant" for myself. Not a bad movie... for a teen magic movie. I mean the guys were total eye candy and they happened to have powers kind of movie. -=giggle=- I tend to like those cheesy movies though so I started the Calorimetry and watch it while Grim played on the computer.

Now I am taking a break from it to blog and possible dive back into the HP book. I don't know though. It's already 3 in the morning and if I start reading I doubt I'll stop. This wouldn't be a bad thing if we didn't have to go visit Grim's family tomorrow. It's alright though, HP will be accompanying me on the journey. -=giggle=-

Speaking of which, take a look at Death Eaters on this site. I WANT IT! I WANT IT! Free Smiley Face Courtesy of Okay I am done now. Free Smiley Face Courtesy of

I think that's about it really. I'll post pictures of the new Calorimetry when it's finished.

Night night all

    I just started HP 7 yesterday too! I'm about half-way through the book! Hoping to finish today before one of the kids at school spoils it for me :) *so I might be using toothpicks to holf my eyelids up tonight*

    Love all you Smileys!

    Hey, I came across something today and I thought about how you always liked the day of the dead stuff. Check it out!

    I have to confess, I haven't even read the first harry potter. I think I'm waiting for all the hype to settle down and stuff that way I can actually enjoy the books (and forget all the spoilers my mother drops after she reads them.)

    Methinks red heart has a chunky version of Death eaters.

    I smell a new colorway coming along.

    I'm thinking of having a Day of the Dead swap on ravelry by the way.
