These are cool!!!!

I just came across these and they look sooooo cool!   Check them out!   http://www.weckcanning.com/docs/tulip.htm

Well it seems like I only get an urge to post anything about once a year around here. Oh well! I have started Seraphim again. And she is coming along nicely. It’s nice to enjoy knitting again. Got to the point that I was having more and more problems with all of my projects and I put the needles down for a little while. Ok a long while. I look forward to a finished project. Just started chart 1 and so far so good. I am using Knitpicks shimmer in Sherry with knitpicks size 5 cable needles. I desperately need to take some pictures but that’s nothing new. LOL

Why is it I always want to take tons of beautiful pictures yet I never seem to get my tush in gear and actually do it? It’s not like I am too busy. Lazy maybe? Hmmmmm Well sometime soon I hope to have some. Wish me luck!

Right after she saw the attention I was giving to my dishcloths! I was in need of some new ones anyways seeing as my old ones were ready to die! When they are used for EVERYTHING they tend to not last as long as you would like them too. Anyway…I busted out one and a half new dishcloths and decided to give Miss Priss another chance. I tinked back the entire row (that’s 160+ stitches btw) and found that she had lied to me while I was knitting and told me that I HAD done that sl 1 k 1 psso! That is where I had the extra stitches! She thought it was funny till I threatened to put her back in the chest!

Everything is working very smoothly now. Just a little slow as I can only seem to get about 2-4 rows snuck in here or there. I hope to get some pictures up soon. Just keep forgetting to do it. Sorry.

On the home front. Jeff got a new job that moved us to YUMA, AZ! You know. That hottest place in the Milky Way second only to the SUN! Well maybe not. But it is definitely too hot for my taste. I thought Tucson was hot. Holy cow! “But this is the Mohave desert. What did you expect” is what I hear a lot of. Sigh. Mean time we stay wherever there is air conditioning.

For those of you who haven’t been in on the action in my life…Jeff injured his right knee and has to have surgery. He goes in on the 16th to have his ACL replaced. Tore that sucker in a major way. My MIL is coming (from Tucson) to watch the kids while I am at the hospital with Jeff. Not really looking forward to this visit. But I guess since I don’t have to deal with the kids at the hospital I should be thankful. And I am. A little. Wish me luck!

I started the peacock shawl in January. I am using my VERY beautiful Seasilk by Handmaiden. The yarn is decadent. So soft and just enough springyness to it. The pattern is turning out beautifully. So why am I so angry at it?!!!!!!???? Because I am in chart 2 row 79. And for some reason I keep ending up with 3 extra stitches in the middle!!!!! And I CAN”T FIGURE IT OUT!!!!!!! I want so badly for this to work. I NEED this to work. Why is this project kicking my ass every 2-4 rows? I don’t know. Heck Tammy had to find and fix my mistakes on rows 73/75. It just keeps blurring together for me. AAAARRRRRGGGGGG!

Go let her know what you think.

As far as my knitting. There is some. Not enough for my taste but some nonetheless. I am almost done with Liaddy’s baby blanket. Need to hurry up with it seeing as Gavin was born on 1/17/08 at 5:52 am. Also re-cast my Bearfoot Mountain colors in Meadow for my socks. This time it WILL work!!!! Pictures soon I promise(I hope).
