Gina that element song is fantastic! too bad I have to learn #s 1-32, 35 & 53 elements & their abreviation. I'll get there. Good laugh though, thanks.

who know's Karina. I keep trying to talk Dh into an alpaca b/c then it'd eat the grass & I'd have wool, so he wouldn't have to mow or give me $ for my yarn needs he said no

Julie maybe you have to increase your spending habits, then the alpaca may look a lot more attractive.

Julie, I'm glad you found the songs amusing. Hopefully, they'll help you learn, too!
The kitten is adorable! Watch your yarn, though!

Christine, hope you feel better VERY soon!

Well, my SPED certification is helping my work this year! I have three severely MR students and one who has severe learning disabilities.

In other news, I ran out of yarn for my bamboo top. I'm ALMOST done--one sleeveband and half the neckband to finish. I called Webs and they DO have another ball of it in the right dye lot, so I'm good, but I have to WAIT! I had SO much extra yarn from the other one, that I figured I'd have plenty, but I guess one size up really does make a big difference in yarn requirements. I suppose that should be incentive to lose weight--less yarn to buy, huh?

I have a tutoring student on the way, or I'd spend time replying to all of you, but gotta go!
HI everyone! Happy knitting!

OOOOOO I love the kitty. But, I'm allergic, so I can never have a cat (I used to not be allergic at all, then I'd be fine unless I touched my face with cat hair/dander covered hands... or if the cat flicked his tail in my face, darn Onyx... now my arms start itching). I'm sure she knows you're lucky to have her, though, lol!

Good morning Socksters!!

Julie~aww you should get 3 so each child has their own kitten ...Gideon threw up yesterday after eating a grasshopper all over my clean kitchen floor, it reminded me that no I don't want 3 cats and a dog...2 cats and a dog is fine lol.

Jackie~I love the bag that is to cute!!

Gina~I hope the yarn arrives super duper fast...I hate when I do that...then gotta wait and usually by the time the yarn comes, I've done moved on

jess~that stinks that you are allergic to them...I don't know what I would do if I was...I love all animals but cats are my favorite...

Karina~You will be a spinning master before you know it

Hi everyone!!

Nothing much happening here today but going to the library and church. Isaiah's friend is coming down for a bit this evening too, until his mom can get home from work.

I started the southend hobo last night and it's moving along quickly now that I've stopped and READ the pattern

I hope you all have a great day of knitting

O way kewl karina on getting a wheel. You will be as much addicted to it as to sock knitting I tell ya. I still have to take pics of mine to show ya'll. I got her last Saturday and I've already spun up about 1000 yards of yarn on it. WOOHOOO!!!!
I've even gotten some merino n spun it up and boy o boy was that stuff like YUMMMMMMMMM!!!!! Yes I am still working on my sox yarn. It's taking like forever. But I've almost gotten it all spun up. Will ply it sometime this week and skein it up n take yarn p0rn shots for ya'lls viewing pleasure. LOL!!!!!

Right now I am concentrating on getting some stuff knitted n crocheted up for my dd who is having a baby this Thursday. She's having a c-section so it's not like one has to guess or anything. My dd has been having a little bit of trouble with her blood pressure this past week and some swelling. They did check her protein levels and it's not bad but then it's traceable which isn't really good either.

Well gonna talk atcha all laters n stuff.
Gotta get ready for work and spin up some more yarn n all that good stuff.
