12/19 Good Morn/Day
how is everyone??
I knitted on booga almost all day sunday. i've got to go buy some more yarn. I am knitting it double strand, so I'm out of the two navy blues.
I did a color change to the ecru and what do you know, the technique that I saw on amy's videos worked liked magic!!!!!!
THANKS AMY.

We had our huge family gathering on sat night and it was wonderful.

I'm working all this week, but I get all of next week off (company shutdown). I'll be in Cedar Rapids all next week hanging out with the parents and possibly an uncle.

I'm almost done with Christmas knitting, just have to finish the bottom sole on my MIL's clogs and seam them up and send them to Canada. Finished FIL's toque on Sunday as well. I was a knitting fool yesterday. Not so much today...I'm hoping I can at least get the sole itself done tonight and attach it tomorrow night. But I might force myself to just do it all tonight so DH can get to the post office tomorrow.

On a sadder note, my Colts finally lost yesterday. :crying: But we've secured home field advantage during the playoffs. So yippy, I guess!

Morning All!

We had a nasty thunder storm yesterday and the power was out for over 12 hours!!

Did get about 18-20 rows done on my throw. Had to knitt my candlelight, which just isn't as nice as you would think. Also had fun watching cars go through the intersections without traffic lights. Why the police were not directing traffic I'm not sure

Hope all is well!
-Wes

I finished my aunt's felted bag yesterday, going to do the finishing touches on it today if it's dry. I got my dad's fruitcake done while watching "Once Upon a Mattress." And started 5 rows of my experiment booga bag hopefully for my mom if it turns out right.

I just woke up with a headache and a sticker shock from our phone bill. I'm dinking around for a bit then I plan on doing my dad's chocolate covered cherries today, maybe my husband's chex mix. And I plan on knitting in front of the TV tonight, it's Medium Monday!

Oh jeez and a scrapbooking project and dying my hair if I have time!

I managed to finish a face cloth for my gma, a soap bag for my dad, and another baby hat for my niece's baby due in January this weekend. I still have my best friend's socks to finish (got time on that one) and another hedgie to finish. I still need to block my mom's hat (which if it weren't for my mom I wouldn't bother, but it's for my mom and the first thing she will ask is, "Did you block it like I taught you?" ) I also managed to do 8 more rows on my prayer shawl (which is a lot because it's a triangular shawl and I'm where it is getting bigger and bigger, so 8 rows took some time.)

Today we are baking cookies and my last batch of gingerbread people is ready to come out!

We had my son's birthday party yesterday. We went to a bowling alley and had fun then went home and cake and ice cream. Right in the middle of all this fun it started to snow. My son has been waiting for snow for a while. He was so happy. Then after all the excitement his grandparents took him off to Seattle for a week or so. WHEW! Don't get me wrong, I love my child more than anything but sometimes I just need a break.

The snow is all melting today with rain turning it all to mush. I think I'll work on the mittens for my son, I need to go to the store and get some more Kool aid so I can dye some natural woolease. I think I'll make some socks outta that. Then there's my Angel Hair scarf and all my other projects. Even though its cold out looks like it will be a good day
