Woo Wee

I love Ravelry, today I was purusing the groups looking at all the new groups when I came across this one, the Sock A Month Club.

In this group the requirments are that you knit a pair of socks in a month. That's it! Nice and simple! No worries about mailing them off , or waiting for yours to arrive in the mail. You knit and keep your socks! Now here is the link,

And I hope to see some of my friends join on up!
( there are prizes too!)

PS! Isn't this a great way to clean out some stash!!!!

In major Denial

I am in major denial that Christmas is less then two days away. I casted on for some socks last night, thinking hey, I can get these done for someone in time. Woke up this am, looked at the puppers, and said, " Crappers! Out of time"

I have to work on Monday. No big deal really, but it means I must, MUST get my shopping done today.

so I am off to shop. Lets hope the 3 stores I am going to have everything I have in mind.

If you see me online, make certain I am done shopping!

Hope ya'll are ready!

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!

Later Gators!

Keith Urban Concert

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.

Waste of time

I want each and every one of you to save some time out of your life by NOT renting the following movie.


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,

Brr, it was so chilly last! I couldn't find any of my knitted hats which means, I had to make one.

This is the Roll Brim Hat, Pattern courtesy of a gal who I hope to one day meet and have a glass of wine with.

I don't have a teddy to pose with the hat, but I did have a Shotgun Red, and he was kind enough to wear it for me.

See ya'll later!

Sweater Time

I just finsihed my Mr. Greenjeans sweater. I used the Tortuga colorway of Malabrigo worsted weight yarn. All I need to do is pick up a button and wait for colder weather.

I have this crazy itch to do colorwork. Anyone care to join me?
