Jackie~How are you doing? It's good to see ya posting! How is everything

Ann~I've been browsing etsy today for roving...but then I found a kit on etsy for about 20.00 I think I'm going to go with it...cause by the time I buy the roving and the yarn for the mitten it will be about the same if not more...I did find a store that will ship a kit from Canada to here but I'm not sure what the shipping will be...but I'm still in for a KAL if you are

Carey, I feel for that mommy. The shawl will definately help her. She & the family are in my prayers. At least God allowed them to enjoy their twins for a short while. Better than a still birth, in my thoughts.

Dustina, Roo will get better. Just think you'll be able to bribe her & say, "if you dont get good grades (later in elementary levels) then you can't try out for this or that" You can use this to your advantage

Just busy here cleaning the house from the weekend, and the car & trying to get homework fit in somewhere. We went to Taos NM yesterday & they had a tiny yarnshop, no bigger than my kitchen and I bought some malabrigo lace, in pink-called Molly I think, I bought 2 skeins because I couldn't remember how much it would take ot do the swallotail lace shawl & it'll not even take 1 full skein. o well. I can either make a second one, or a big one, or wait till the first weekend in October & take it back to her for an exchange on another color. The wool festival will be in Taos that weekend & Dh has said he'd be glad to go with me up there & we'd get someone to watch the kids. I'm so excited, and thrilled that he's showing me support in my knitting. kinda out of character; well he's never given me much grief about it, but hasn't ever been excited about going with me anywhere for my hobby. So hopefully everyone will be well and we can enjoy a day in Taos, just the 2 of us and the other million people that show up for that. jk I dont have any idea how many will be there, but I'm sure it will be crowded!

Hi everyone! For Christine feeling better and making progress! The sunshine must have felt great to her!

Long weekend and never got on the computer at all. Nice relaxing weekend here. Saturday DD and I went hiking at a local park that has a waterfall. Very pretty there. We took Max and he did great. We went about 4 miles and I don't think he was even tired when we finished. I ran a little too and he did well on the leash running along side of me. Sunday we raced and DH came in second! Very exciting to go to the final round. Yesterday we spent time in Lowe's and Home Depot trying to figure out how to redecorate/paint my family room and kitchen. I'm so interior decorating challenged. Today is back to work.

Julie~We never had to "meet" cadavers! Luckily we only had to dissect a cat. I wish you lots of luck with that! Fun to have a date planned with DH. Even though there will be tons of people there, you won't have to take any of them to the bathroom, feed them, cut up their food or push them in a stroller through the crowd!

Dustina~Hope Roo's feeling better with her allergies. Crazy about the football. It's suppose to be fun people! Some parents take it too serious and the boys don't understand what's going on. Hope it straightens out soon.

Carey~Sorry to hear of your friends little ones. Hopefully the shawl will bring her some comfort.

Rachel~Hope you can find another job soon. Sounds like you are not liking this one. Good to treat yourself though!

Susan~Glad you had fun with the DGSs!

Dotty~Beautiful blanket!

Hi to everyone!! Enjoy the rest of your day! Catch you later!

Hi to all.

I spoke with Christine again today and she sounded so much better. She really wants to be out of the hospital but knows it will be a long time yet. A lot of therapy ahead.

Dotty: I love the blanket.

Carey: So sorry to hear the latest news on your friend. How sad. I hope that you can get to visit and I am sure she will really appreciate the shawl.

Dustina: Hope Roo's allergies get better soon. It is a rotten time for so may sufferers. Too bad about the sports team. Parents should realize that at that age it is supposed to be fun, win or lose.

Hello all!

Busy busy busy. Worked Sunday- busy day and one of my girl's was sick so extra busy. Day off yesterday spent cleaning and then knitting with my friend Laura in the afternoon, then we rented Bride Wars and watched it with our friend Annie. Today I worked from 1-9:30 and spent most of my time cleaning the store because our visual specialist is coming in. I don't think the store has ever been this clean- or at least not lately! Still have to go in and vacuum the whole thing in the morning.

Dustina- I'm getting my kit this Saturday at the Knitter's Fair, but I can definitely wait until whenever you're ready- and anyone else who wants to join!

Sue- Glad you talked to Christine again and that she sounds like she's getting better.

Lisa- Glad you had a good long weekend. I love decorating! What are you thinking of doing?

Julie- That's so sweet that your hubby is going to the festival with you! I know what you mean about feeling supported- it's a great way to be.

Rachel- I like that owls pattern- so cute! I think there's a mitten pattern with the same cable on it.

Dotty- Gorgeous blanket- looks so soft and cozy. Perfect for a baby.

Carey- What a nice thing to do for someone in need.

Hi Courtney, Chris, Jackie, Emily, Lieke......


Josh and I are re-visiting that house we like on Thursday and maybe seeing another couple. Very exciting!

Rachel I want to do the owls sweater so badly, but not sure which yarn to use. What are you using?

Class was deep last night, meaning we are touching on the endocrine system, LOTS of stuff to memorize. I think it's a blessing, but maybe a curse, that this teacher gives you a powerpoint handout and he teaches that material, and that's what we're supposed to "learn to pass." So basically he says learn the class notes and you'll do fine. He also told us that the only way you know you're studying enough is if your personal relationships are deteriorating. He expects to hear about a couple divorces, broken engagements and lots of break ups during this 16 week course. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
Little does he know, I have to knit to keep my sanity

I'm using Patons Inca for my owls cos I found it on sale.

I had an unexpected day off today. Apparently the numbers have gone down so they don't need so many rooms doing. I had a call this morning to say not to come in and then this afternoon I was called again and told not to come in tomorrow either. I wouldn't mind, but I've done 5 hours this week at minimum wage and I could do with more money than that. Unfortunately I'm on a casual contract so they can do that, I'm not guaranteed any hours, and as I'm still training and can't do as much as the rest of them I guess it makes more sense to cut my hours. I can see why they are doing it but I'm quite annoyed about it. I'm looking for another job with guaranteed hours!

It is nice to have time off but it is nicer to have money to spend.
