Great looking hat Carey. It's not as nice as MY hat, which I happened to wear today because it was cool out. I was lovely and warm with my hat and matching scarf on. I will try to get a picture soon and post it on here. Thanks again to all the knitters on those two projects!!! xoxo

*mutters darkly*
I'm taking a break from Skew. I love the pattern but the top-of-the-foot non-angled rows don't fit around my foot. I knit it with a slightly bigger guage this time, but the yarn isn't as stretchy, so I came up with the same result.
So I'm trying something new.

In other news: I went home for the weekend and stopped to hang out with my friends Friday night, but I got to the QC before they did, so I stopped at PetCo to check out the perches.
I've been planning on buying a friend for Kitten in the next couple of weeks, now that she is getting pretty close to being tame, so I also checked out the budgies. I've always wanted a white budgie, and guess what? They had one. So I brought it home. I think it's a boy, although he's pretty young and it's a sketchy business to guess when they're that age (particularly white ones, as the lack of pigments can affect the cere, also). Anyway, even though I'm pretty sure it's a boy, I named him Artemis after my favorite Greek goddess. Most people I know consider Artemis to be a non-gender-specific name anyway.

Julie, sorry to hear about your grandpa. I hope everything else works out.
Awesome hat, Carey!

Dustina, did the kids have to go to school today?

Carey, YAY for knitting a hat to match the scarf! I'd love to see pics, Christine!

Julie, glad your dad seems okay so far. Pray that everything goes well.

Emily, what a pain that the pattern isn't working out right for you. Did others comment on it on Rav? So will the two birds get along?

I finished the chemo cap, but it's too small for an adult. Oh well. I'll give it to a girl at church who had to have her head shaved for brain surgery. I started a second one in the larger size. I was supposed to have it finished by church tomorrow, but that won't happen. I have about 3" done but my hands can do no more today.

Good evening Socksters!

Carey~Great job on the hat

Christine~I'm so glad you are knitting

Emily~on Artemis

Julie~Continued prayers for your family. I seen they had a purple one out...I got the pink

Gina~aww will keep the little girl in my prayers....

The kids didn't have to go today, they were trying for next Saturday...but the board thought that was short notice for parents who may already have plans.

Right now the plan is to hope for no more snow...go a Saturday in March and add an hour and half to their day for 2wks.

If they do this then we will cross out the first week of June and the 7th...and they will get out at the end of May again (still loose their spring break though)...however if we get more snow then they will go into June again or figure something else out.

I hadn't thought about it but the teacher who is keeping me informed told me that the graduation date had been set and invitations have been ordered...with all this snow it changed the graduation date...this will put graduation date back on track. (again as long as we don't get hit with another snow storm that takes out of school again for 2wks...)

We had a good day out and about today before it is suppose to hit again (snow)...now I'm enjoying the Olympics

Hope you guys have a great Sunday!!

well I didn't do so hot on the Lab exam last Sat. got about a 60% from his math, though I cant figure it out. said I got a 25 on the test, there were 60 questions and it was worth 40 points. Whatever, I'm sitting at a 70% I think. I knew I didn't do to well on that damn test, especially with sick kids the previous week. So I hope to bring that up alot! He didn't seem to worried, said I had lots of time to bring it up. First quiz was a 70, second was just over an 80 and then this exam was a 60 so I think I'm still ok, esp if I can do really good onthe next quizzes and exams.

No knitting and I'm tired and fighting a headache now. So think I'll go to bed. Tomorrow Brian and I are going on a date afternoon/evening. I'm looking forward to that.

Thanks for all the prayers about Grandpa, it's appreciated. There will be a memorial service and burriel on March 2 or 3rd I guess, so Dad's flying back and is going to help his step mom ( a woman I've never met) maybe move or at least get some things taken care of. She's hurting with arthritis very badly. She can't hardly write anymore and used to be a school teacher.

Hope all is good with you all, enjoy your Sunday.

I haven't checked on Ravelry. Instead I'm working on a sock design of my own. IF it works out, I may be in search of test knitters. But that's all I'm saying until I get something worked up. So far it's going pretty good I think, though!
When I'm ready to try again, I'll search Ravelry and see if anyone has suggestions on Skew.

As for the birds, they should get along. But for the moment they have to stay seperate in case Artemis is carrying any pathogens that might make Kitten sick. They will always each have their own cage anyway, and playtime will be supervised, so that neither gets picked on.

Interesting, but the conclusion that overpopulation is a myth does not reach the real issue.
Yes, the "developed" nations currently have at or below replacement levels of reproduction, but the developed world is still experiencing extremely high growth, and those are the areas in which there are already not enough resources available, or if there are, the infrastructure is not in place to distribute resources to the entire population. Consider the rate of unsustainable harvest of the rainforest, desertification in sub-Saharan Africa, and so on... Yes, having a decreasing population can cause problems, but if a stable or slowly falling population in a developed country reduces the strain on international scale resource use (unsustainable or even illegal exportation of resources from developing nations, in particular) I don't think it's a bad thing.
*steps off soapbox* ...sorry didn't mean to preach.
