Mornin'!

Dustina & Roo: sorry your sick-Roo be a good girl and let Mommy take a nap, she needs it. Dustina maybe you two can cuddle up in your bed and watch tv (if you have one in your room) or on the couch (futon) together. Hell lay that futon out and relax! (it was you that had the futon, right?)

Tami: you're fantastically brilliant! I think I'll have to do some cableing for my next pair of socks so that I can try your technique! Thank you so much for the video-I've 'favorited' it.

We had fancy pancakes last night for dinner. I used a squeeze bottle and made smily faces on the skillet then when those were about to the turning stage I poured batter over them and then waited to turn those and when I flipped them they all looked like great smiley faces-sorry no pics; I'll take pics next time. It made making dinner fun! And then Dh had to make his pancakes, I usually throw chocolate chips in a few for 'dessert pancakes' but he wanted to do some with shredded cheese, bacon bits and green chili...sounds gross but boy was it good! I think he's gonna be making some of those for me for Mother's day. boy were they yummy. The socks I'm making for Dh are 72 sts & I'm almost done with the heel flap! just a few more rows. My hope is to finish by Sat night so he can wear them to Church on Sun. Only 10 more days until March! Cant wait for the Sockamania pattern. As if the years dont go by fast enough, this sockamania is gonna make this year fly by!
ok off to knit some more on his socks-didn't get but a couple rows done yesterday.

Jackie I've never put chicken in my pancakes, or toped them with ice cream and chocolate and nuts-sounds good.

Dustina.... Thanks for the confidence... What site is KPC..

Lisa... Amy Davis is from our area. Her hometown is about 30 min. away. I hope she does well tonight!! I do have a problem with their selections this season. They really should have not allowed the people that have had contracts in the past.

As for pancakes.. We didnt do that but had frenchtoast instead. I do make mine a little different I use the cinnammon bread from sara lee or other types. YUM!!

I also tried something else today.. Since I was a little frustrated with the knitting and up way to early because the dog decided to have a barking fit at 6 am. I tried to make my own stitch markers. I went and snagged my DD's beads and here is what I got.

Silegose~Those are very pretty! My MIL & SIL are into beading. I should show them some stitch markers and see what they come up with. I'll watch for Amy tonight. I'm not sure which one she is.

Dustina~I hope you and Roo feel better soon. I love Nyquil to sleep, but I'm trash the next day from it.

Julie~ DH's dad used to make pancakes in different shapes. I bet the kids liked them! btw....am I the only one that didn't have pancakes last night?

Lisa: No you're not. I had tuna casserole!

Silegose: those stitch markers look very nice.

Dustinac: sorry you don't feel well. I hope you feel better tomorrow.

Jackie: I used to do that when my daughter was young. I would make some supper pancakes and some dessert pancakes. She loved it. We called it "breakfast for supper".

jberry: That will be a nice treat for Mother's Day! Enjoy!

I'm going to work on my DD's scarf today. We are going there to visit on Monday for my grandson's 8th birthday, so I will (hopefully) take the completed scarf with me. Then I will go on to finishing the Teddy All In One and once that is done I can work on the bedjacket for my sister. When those three things are finished I will have finished all the things I "owe" people and I can start on my CPH. Of course I will have socks on the go along with this list but for now I have no sock yarn. Sounds like time to go yarn porning!!!!

Silegose, those stitch markers are beautiful!

Dustinac, LOL, which socks *don't* I want to make next?! I'm going to cast on a few baby sweaters before I do any more socks, though... I have 3 babies to knit for, one of whom is already a month old, so I need to get my buns in gear.

Hope all the sickies are feeling better today!

I'm just feeling sleepy... I saw Celtic Woman last night, it was an incredible show! Late night, though. Someone else here saw them this week too, right? How did you like the show?

Silegose: kpc is www.knittingpatterncentral.com
love the st. markers & your french toast sounds yummy, I use reg bread and then my 'mix' is eggs, milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Glad to hear your order will be there soon (mine arrived fed ex home delivery & they didn't ring the door bell or knock-agrivated me). Also super that your lys has the book- I'm gonna have to finish dh's sock so I can try her socks in that book.

Lisa: I don't think you're the only one, I'm blaming the pancake party on Jackie's blog-she's always making pancakes and then Dotty starts craving them and I think it just sounded good to a bunch of us last night, not to mention it's an easy supper.

The.Knitter: tuna casserole sounds good too-may have that tonight-or Friday since it's our no meat night. yarn porn: please share the sinful stuff when you find it! (wiping drool away)

I think I may load the kids up before lunch and go to Michaels and buy some stuff to make some st markers while they nap. (notice how I"m not getting the knitting done on dh's sock-boring)

Oh, so much to respond to, today ! I need to open a separate window to look back at all of the posts !

Silegose, this page has the socks that have been shared on Knitty.com......from the archives.....and here are the links for just Hedera and Monkey. They're both considered lace, too, but I know that the Monkey is easy to get into.........haven't made the Hederas yet, but tried the stitch pattern way back when I was so new to lace, and it was easy enough too.
And, I, too, really like the looks of that cardigan you're doing !

Tami, great job on the video........all that background noise beats the heck out of my little bitty video where I didn't say ANYTHING, and people wondered if their sound was working !

Julie, I keep meaning to tell you how gorgeous your hubby's sock is ! I think I commented on it on Flickr, but can't remember if I mentioned it here ! By the way, I STILL haven't had my pancakes yet ! Leftover roast for dinner last night, and I'm making Spanish Rice as I type !

Dustina, I'm sorry you guys are sick again. I love the looks of the area where you live (from the photos on your blog)........looks like a little piece of Heaven ! My Jaywalkers aren't going very quickly.......funny, I thought they would because I had all the sizing worked out.......but I have other things going at the same time, and I sortof put them on the back burner for traveling with me. I ripped out the scarf and tried again with fewer stitches when I realized that it would be wider than I wanted when I block it. But it's not as pretty now..........the variegated yarn needs more stitches to spread the color out better or something. I'll keep going a ways and see if I like it any better.

Gotta go and finish the Spanish Rice and feed myself and the hubster !

Wish I could have commented on all of your posts..........I love this thread !

I'm not entirely sure yet... I think I'm going to do this one for the girl, and maybe this one for the boys, but in blue. What do you guys think? Is that 'boy-ish' enough?
