I did finish my Fake Isle hat from Magknits on Sunday... It was way cute but too small.. Some Kidlet shall he getting a hat soon. But it was a great project to learn Fair Isle.
For tomorrow, I will be at the shop taking Cables and Lace class with Annie Modesitt. I am looking forward to this class. There are a lot of lace projects I have wanted to do, but I have been hesitant because I don't feel my skills are strong enough. But then I remember I taught myself how to knit, how to knit socks, kind of how to fair isle,( with the help of Kathe and her tucking thingy) and some other stuff.
I can't wait to see my knitty friends and have a great afternoon!

I went with a girlfriend of mine to the Keith Urban concert this past Friday. Our tickets were on the 4th row and the couple to my right were great. Kinda quiet ( till I got her screaming with me lol) but they were not drinking and were cool about me getting past them and up close to the stage, esp when I dragged her with me.
(Now for the topless girl who was to my left, when I told you get put them away and get some class I meant it. Do you think your grandmother would be proud of you?)
He played a great concert,really geared towards the fans. He interacted well with us. I personally like it when at concerts the artist will share stories of how they wrote songs, or crazy things that happen in concert when playing them and Keith didn't really do that, which is ok.
It was my goal to touch that man. And I DID!!!
So it was at the end of the concert, after the encore and he was right about to leave the stage after going all over, he looked at my area and headed over. I was standing at the guard rail with a death grip on it, in case some security dude wanted to move me, no way was I moving. He came right to me, looked down and I know I had to have the goofiest biggest smile on my face. I did a jump and reach, reached all the way out, as he said with a grin at me, "Hey". And I said, "HI!!"
(in my super squeaky voice I get when I am excited) and he grabbed my hand.
Then he moved on, knowing he had fulfilled something for me. HaHa. Anywho, I had an amazing time, I lost my voice from all the screaming.
I would like to thank the Awesome JSO for getting me and the gals I rode with Rock Star parking. Always a pleasure fellows, see you in January for another concert!!

I was amazed when I got home from work today to see my package from my friend who has been anonymous the past few months but who now has a name, Mathgirl!
Mathgirl, or Jenna sent me an awesome package. The most beautiful scarf in Cherry Tree Hill yarn. She also sent Snoopy some Busy Bones which are by far his most favorite. There was a cute little Freddie the frog( in which you place in water and watch him grow) some bath fuzzies and some Fleece Artist Merino sock yarn. I squeal led with glee when I opened my package.
Jenna has been a great swap pal this turn. She kept me posted with updates and comments on my blog and of course she seems to like Snoopy which is a HUGE + in my book.

What a piece of crap. Woman marries abusive jerkwad. She gets knocked up by him. She stays with loser. She talks to friends about leaving him but they dont do anything to help her leave him. Hello?? THese are not friends. But I digress. She also has an affair with her married doctor.
Back in the day, my peeps would run people over to get me out.
Plus the lead actess has the worst southern accent. I would rather listen to a chainsaw at 2 in the morning when I was trying to recover from a hangover then listen to her talk.
Trust me, don't watch this trash,
But you can enjoy a Snoopy picture here,

See ya'll later!

Mike Rowe, Please pose for Playgirl! (ps there is new Dirty Jobs on tonight!)
On the knitting front, I completed my Top raglan sweater with the awesome Malabrigo. I am working on my Tortuga (Mr. GreenJeans) sweater.
Dad came home on Saturday from the hospital and he is doing great. We had our Thanksgiving on Sunday and that was fine. All kinds of weirdos keep calling the house wanting the story of what happened to dad, and I am freaking sick and tired of hearing it. I really want to start embellishing the story and have him getting attacked by ninjas or in a knife fight with a kangaroo or something.
SO i will be at the shop this Friday afternoon and all day on Saturday, Can't wait to see you there!

And finally a story. On Tuesday I was leaving my Grandmas house around 9:20pm and I tripped down her stairs and hurt my ankle. I sucked it up and walked two cans of trash to the road on a cart only to get to the edge of the road.. and find a hole with the same foot and I ended up with a sprained ankle. It hurts like the dickens. But I should be on the healing road soon. Our final picture tonight is when I had the brilliant thought of taking a picture of 5:40 am . ( I had been up since 3:30am yuck-o-rama-!
Happy Gobble Day to all!

"To be crazy like a bag of wet weasels"
Have you seen her most awesome "unoriginal" hat pattern. Read her HERE, and if you don't, then I might just call you....a communist.
I have been in a full rush of sweater knitting to the tune of, " Just keep knitting, Just keep knitting" ( from just keep swimming from Finding Nemo)
Pictures to come one day.. I hope. Also look for a blog full of yarn pron.
Let's hope my Ravelry shirt is in my mailbox when I get home!

Requirements: Ignoring the dirty room he lives in and giving him kisses.
Contact Kimber for info.
Producton begins this weekend!
On a real note I have ripped out 4 times for the Harvest Sock Swap. I was trucking along very well in my lastest sock only to be doing math today at work and figuring I will not have enough yarn. GO figure. So I shall recast on in another Yarn this evening. Unless I start drinking.
Now I have only cast on twice for my International Scarf. I ripped out last night, did some swatching on some new yarn and I liked what I had. There had better be some Law and Order SVU reruns on tonight so I can get some knitting done.
I'm off on Monday, anyone want to hang out?
