A Productive Sunday.
Sunday, December 30, 2007
I have completely emptied out every single email address I have. Boy I was getting behind on those emails. Sorry guys I am a terrible pen pal over the holidays. Then after that I went through and caught up on all the Ravelry group posts ( I was surprised to find there wasn't many). I emailed a couple of people I was interesting in coversating with and then moved onto the next task. Blogs. I went through my entire Friend's list on Ravelry and caught up on all the Holidays News, then I hit my usual reads. After that it was time to start working on my blog. I wanted to add a finished section as well as a Groups and Alongs Section. So I did, then I noticed how difficult I found the font to read. So I figured if it was hard for me, it might be hard for others so I increased the size and made it bold. Does it help at all ?

Now I am blogging before I prepare to get ready to go to my mom's house. We're supposed to help her put together my brother's new desktop. Also, we need to bring over their presents. OMG! I totally forgot to blog about this! My mom got engaged over the holiday weekend. Her birthday is the 21st and her boyfriend of 7 years proposed to her! He set up a suprise party at the place they had their first date. So that got her, then they brought out a hat and started singing Happy Birthday.. Well tied to the hat was a ring and a card that said will you marry me?
HOW CUTE IS THAT! So needless to say, my mom is over the moon.

As far as knitting goes, I am making terrific progress on the Tree Jacket. I am planning on bringing it with my tonight to work on while the computer tech (Grim) works his magic. The Cobweb stole is definitely not going to work, I am definitely not skilled enough or patient enough to work that pattern. So I bought another one lastnight. It's the Feather Lace Shawl (link to the right). I casted on lastnight and I think I am going to do well with this pattern. I am using Sublime's Mohair Blend in White. I went to the yarn store, gift card in hand, and got enough yarn to finish the Accidental Drop Stitch Vest (link on right). Finally!! -=giggle=- I also picked up some black yarn for Grim's fingerless gloves, and Lambs Pride Bulky in Black and Neon Green for the Record Bag I want to make. However, now that many are telling me the Stitch'n'Bitch Nation pattern will work, I might just use it for that instead. Lamb's Pride will felt right? I confess I know nothing about felting. -=giggle=-

I am hoping to get a lot of projects completed this new year. I joined A Loose Knit Along, which is dedicated to working on projects for Christmas. That's why I went ahead and picked up the yarn for Grim's gloves. I also jumped on the wagon and joined Project Spectrum. I really want to be more receptive to color and what I can create with color.

I have a whole bunch of goals for the New Year. My number one goal being the EVER so Typical goal of quitting smoking. I want to but at the same time I don't. I know it's bad for me but I enjoy doing it. You know, one of those things.

Any top goals for you guys?

Anyways, I hope everyone has/had a wonderful weekend.

    Congrats to your mom! :D If it's wool, it'll felt. Just throw it in the machine.

    My goal is to not go insane this year. I have a feeling, aside from getting married, that we'll be pretty busy.
