I'm on board with the whole weaving-in-of-ends deal. It took me a while to get them all in on Summer Olympics and it was a nice break from actual knitting, but it would have been faster to just do my own.

On a side note, Summer Olympics is doing fine. The blanket itself is finished all up, but some crazy stuff has been going on at home for me, so I'm not quite done with the crochet border yet. Tonight is my first night with "free time" in about 5 days, so the plan is to sit down and finish it tonight because I know we need to stick to the time frame as best as possible.

You actually have longer than 2 weeks when you are doing the border and a knit section. Really it's 2 weeks for each. And I understand being busy... TRUST ME do I understand!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well! I have been trying to keep this Christmas stress free but everything has been crazy( not as crazy as Dawn's moving but still nutty) so my new goal is stress light. Here's hoping!

For those that want to weave in the ends on their section I found this method a while ago and love it! It is a way to weave the ends in while knitting. I can't remember if I have shared it here or not so if this is a repeat, sorry. Here is the tutorial.

Fantastic! I wondered if extra time might be the case. I felt sick to my stomach last night (not really sure why) so I went home and crawled into bed at 8 pm (super early for me). I feel fine today. I have one of my knit nights tonight (skipped the one last night for the same reason as above), so I think I will take Summer Olympics with me and work on it there.

I'd also like to say that it A) feels strange to hold a crochet hook again and B) my crochet--or what little I can do, anyway--has improved a bit, I think! Not sure why, but I think knitting has helped my crochet be better.

Who would I be sending the blanket to when it is finished? Is it different from who I should return the needles to?

Just checking in to say "Hi!" before I head out for choir rehearsal. Our big musical is this weekend, so we're working extra hard to get it all together. I'll be on piano, and one of my students will be playing keyboard. We'll also have another keyboard doing strings, and a guest organist for that instrument. We've also hired a brass ensemble.

Our adult choir will be joined by the children's choir, youth choir and a group of soloists. We'll also have drama performed in front of the musicians. I'd say that it will be a busy day!

Our big rehearsal is this Saturday morning, so I'm hoping it goes well.

In addition to that, I'm still teaching piano lessons, and playing some gigs as well. I played my keyboard in one of the big skyscraper buildings in uptown Charlotte yesterday for a couple hours. And I'm playing it at Chick-Fil-A tomorrow for lunch. (my hubby's restaurant). They want me to play at Chick-Fil-A again on Saturday, but it all depends on how long rehearsal goes at church. (My student is using my keyboard for that performance.)

As soon as all the Christmas stuff is over, I'll be back full force. The Autumn blanket is sitting in a basket by my knitting chair, so that will be first priority.
Thank you all for your patience with me!

Wow, Sandy! You are jam packed busy!! I bet your concert sounds great after all this rehearsing!! I wish I could be there! I just love a good Christmas Concert!

My DH is finally done with his teaching/work for the sememster (he's a college prof) so we are in the final stages of getting everything ready to go to my Mom's house for Christmas. Can you believe it is only a week away??? I started the Lattice Scarf from knitzophrenic and I really like the pattern, but I am not happy with my yarn. It splits really easily and I have to concentrate on every stitch so as to no increase by accident!! Plus, the yarn is small and the needles are kinda small so it is slow going. I really like fast and easy projects!!

Anyway, my dd just woke up from her nap and I have to go get her!

Thank you, Holly! Not feeling rushed here... I'm not even done with my Christmas knitting, lol! I did get a sizeable chunk of the border done last night, though, so maybe I'll get to finish it up tonight.

On a side note, today is my birthday. I am 24 and I'm happy that it still feels like fun.
