It is also a Blue moon tonight!!

A Blue Moon occurs when we have two Full Moons in the same month. It is the second of these two Full Moons. On December 31st, we will experience such an event. This New Year's Eve is indeed a “Once in a Blue Moon” opportunity to focus on our resolutions, not just for the year 2010 but also for the rest of our lives. According to ancient astrologers, all rituals will be more powerful than usual. This is the ideal time to write down all of your hopes, dreams and wishes.

This Full Moon is also significant because it is a Partial Lunar Eclipse. This Full Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on December 31, 2009 at 10 degrees in the sign of Cancer at 11:13 am Pacific / 12:13 PM Mountain / 1:13 pm Central / 2:13 pm Eastern Time. It is the first of two eclipses. There will be a Solar Eclipse in two weeks, on Januray 14th, 2010. This two-week period, between the two eclipses, is a very powerful time of manifestation. Be sure to consciously focus your mind, imagination and emotions on what you do want to experience. Remember not to give your energy to that which you wish to be free of. This Full Moon Eclipse is an ideal time to focus on forgiveness and come to terms with past hurts. Take responsibility for any unresolved, repressed, fear-based emotions as they are exposed to you. If you are experiencing negative emotions during this day or about four days before and after this date, be sure to feel, express and release them to Spirit. The tendency of most people is to look outside of themselves and blame others for their pain. Only when we take responsibility for our own creations can we heal ourselves and evolve spiritually.

Too funny and what are the odds - I have the yarn, needles and pattern right in front of me to make a pair of those slippers! Our knit guild asked us to bring slippers to our next meeting to donate to a nursing home and I think this pattern is cute.

Happy New Year, 2010 is going to be a GREAT year!

I'm here working my my sweater with all of you fellow knitters. Please put my name in for the drawings, Sandy. Looks like some really nice things that you are giving away.

If anyone wants to check out what I did today just go to my blog thread and see the yarn that my DD's kool aid dyed. It was a blast and the yarn turned out so pretty

I'm here......about another inch of ribbing to go on the first slipper. They're great slippers...so say my sisters, nieces and Mom

Sandi always has such great ideas....and yummy yarn

I'm watching Major Payne with my knitting...that movie cracks me up!

Almost ready for that first glass of bubbly.....

I managed to make about 7 inches on my Palindrome scarf, then frogged it to make it about an inch wider. Does anyone have tips on how to keep track of how many rows are between the cables? It's driving me crazy losing my place. At this rate, this could be an incredibly l-o-n-g scarf!

You've just interpreted the odd dreams i've been having


Happy new year everyone! My minions are watching america's funniest home videos and i'm working on the infernal socks (not just because they're red, well, bronzed berry bliss technically LOL! but because i've never had this much issue with a basic pair of socks! between yarn splits and dropped stitches.....) and thinking of loading twilight

Not an auspicious beginning, I'm afraid...

Welcome to the party, UruzPhoenix! Good luck with your socks (and minions)

Cool! Cotton Bunny Blankets!
I'm not able to crochet much, because of my arthritis, but I do a few stitches now and then for borders and such. An entire blanket would take me FOREVER!

Welcome! Thanks for joining us!

I've practiced purl but putting it into play on a real pattern has me a bit nervous................I did a dish cloth the other night, in garter stitch. Perhaps I should do another one but use stockinette to get some practice in. Ohhh, the options.
You can do it! Just keep practicing and practicing. It will make more sense as you go, and your knitting will be better and better.

Funny, how great minds think alike.
