I don't feel like blogging. I don't want to go to work or school, I just want to stay home and sleep and knit and eat, and then start again from the top of the list. I also want to read, maybe I'll add that to the list after eat and that way it will be easier to fall back to sleep. How about that? I'd also like the dishwashing fairy, the laundry fairy and the housecleaning fairy to come by and help me out once a week. Apparently, wanting is not enuf cause NONE of this is going to happen. **sigh**

Oh well, back to reality...oh there goes gravity....oh, it don't matter he....What was I saying? That song just popped up on me.

I have been knitting. Not a whole lot, but I still carry projects around with me. I got yarn for my birthday, beautiful beautiful yarn from Daniella AND one of those cute little Lantern Moon sock bags...you know the ones, they look like shark skin fabic and you can hang them off your arm so you can walk and knit. Yeah, no walking and knitting for me...falling is an issue in my world when the ONLY thing I'm doing is walking and I've got the scars to prove it. I also got a ball of Step from Melissa, and a wool silk blend with a lace sampler scarf pattern from Victoria. There were many other wonderful gifts, just not yarn related....Thank you all! And the celebrations really raised my spirits. I can't thank you SnB ladies enough!!!! It was a good birthday.

I don't have pictures...well, I have pictures I just don't have them to post because the batteries in my camera died and I refuse to pay $7.59 for batteries when I can get the same for a buck fifty at Ikea, but I don't have time to go to Ikea. Argh!!!! If my current job hadn't gone to shit in the last month I'd be questioning my decision to enter this DMS program.

Okay, so I have been knitting, I've been making socks. I made a pair for myself. K6 P2 rib with a regular old heel (I'm sure there's a technical name, but damned if I know or am going to look it up). I did them on the magic loop, which I think I've mentioned here before. I L.O.V.E. the technique. I'll be doing it as often as possible. Although, I think I'll have to get sturdier needles than Addis because I'm a bit tense and I bent the size zeros I have. Not a terrible bend, but when you hold the needles together one of them looks arced...hard to kitchner with them like that. I also finished the green socks for Tara that Dixie marveled at...I did them both at the same time on one circular and they were fine except for the heel flap. That came out awful, but there was no fixing it...actually, the socks don't look all that good. They're done, I don't want to talk about it any more. :)

So, two pairs of socks done. Sizzle started and frogged. Some sleeves started...sort of looks like a shrug but it's just sleeves, not sure why I want them but I do. I also frogged the Gentlemen's Lozenge socks, will "create" a patter of my own design for that yarn. The Candle Flame shawl which I haven't touched in weeks...and the Knotted Openwork scarf in this beautiful aubergine Doucer something or the other, it's like Kid Seta or Kidsilk haze. Okay, enuf of me and my half done things, you can check the archives for the other WIPs or UFOs if you would...

Enuf of my whining. I'm doing fine in school. Work would be wonderful (as wonderful as work can be) if these two women would stop complaining that I'm too noisy and disruptive. Home is fine other than that band of missing cleaning fairies!

Hope all is well with all of you....hope you're ready for this new heatwave that is upon us too. Ugh, if only we had a fall here.

you have every damn right in the world to whine. I can't
believe how busy you are, not one single day to yourself! furthermore, I get free batteries at my job from disposable suction-irrigators from laparoscopic surgery (don't worry they are 100% clean) so you can have some of mine.. see you soon!

I wish I had those fairies too! And I'm not nearly as busy as you are. Hang in there. Hopefully work will get better or you will find another job!
