Jeff just rented Guitar Hero for PS2 last night. The new one.(Of course he has the first 2. Who doesn’t? HA! HA!) It is the Encore: Rocks the 80’s. This one also has a great song list but only half the amount of songs as the 1st two. Which in my opinion is not worth $50 freakin’ bucks. Which is why Jeff had to rent it instead of purchase it. (Cause he would not have lived had I found out. And I would find out!) Anyways. I got to knit and rock out with him for a while last night. It was kinda cool cause I would sit there and knit to the beat. I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror at the end of the hall and had to laugh. I am such a dork bobbin’ my head, singing Holy Diver, and knitting on a prayer shawl.

Speaking of said shawl. It is not finished. Also you will notice I said shawl and not shawls. I am only knitting 1. It is so time consuming and I just have too much going on right now that 2 would freakin’ kill me. I originally cast on and was doing K3P3 and that was driving me nutso! So about 6″ into it I frogged the snot out of it and re-cast using Granny’s Favorite pattern. Just won’t do the decreases so it will be a big triangular shawl. I gotta tell ya though. All this miles and miles of garter st.(while easy and mindless) is really starting to wear on my patience. And I am only half way!

I also got back to knitting on Forest. Not much but still a start. Still have to do the fingers on my HFMG’s and finish the kid’s bean bags. Scott’s hat is still not finished. Just have the decreases to do and then it will be done. Mom’s Calorimetry is not even CO yet.(She is going to be here Aug. 21st. and I have to have it and Scott’s hat ready for when she leaves on Sept. 5th.) And I have 2 baby blankets to get done. One by Oct. and the other by Dec.

I hope to have some pictures of all my WIPs for you soon. But since it is still gray outside, and lighting sucks around here, I am waiting a while.

This deadline crap sucks! I am starting to hate all my projects. Knitting is supposed to be fun. Sigh.

Good news though. I haven’t posted in a while so it is kinda old news. Sorry. I got my invite to Ravelry! This place totally ROCKS!!!!! I really love the queue, project list, and the pattern search. It is really helping to get me organized. (Keeps me busy online instead of knitting or cleaning though. That is not good.) It is fun though. They still aren’t ready to open up shop completely yet but you should race on over there and get on the waiting list for beta. It’s a long list but well worth the wait. I promise.

TTFN,
