It's Monday again?

Okay, so there's no new finished objects to report on. But I do have a new project in the works. I'm working on making beer cozies. I have two or three different patterns, and I already have one made (so I lied...there's one FO). If anyone reading this has made any, I'd love to see pics and find out if you were satisfied. I think these would be excellent Christmas gifts for our friends here in town. All of our friends from college that still live close try to get together once a month (more now that football has started up) for a little party, and these would be great gifts for those people on the "12 Month Party Plan". So, I'm all ears...I'm open to suggestions.

Wow! That was a fast weekend!

Okay, absolutely no knitting done this weekend. NONE. Friday, we went out to dinner with friends and I spent the rest of the night getting ready for Saturday. Saturday, we met up with my parents to celebrate Trail of Tears, and we rode the motorcycles all day. I finally got a little knitting done last night while watching the Emmys.

What I'm Watching - Degrassi. I've seen all the old episodes about 12 times each, but I've gotten the husband hooked, so I'm watching them all again ( and learning how obsessed I really am).

What I'm Reading - Still the Laurell K. Hamilton book.

What I'm Listening to - Still a playlist of randomness.

Okay, I'll post TOT pictures when I get them from my mom. I took NO pictures.

I'm trying...

Okay....So the last post and all of the ufo's? Not much to tell...I did finish the wristlets, and promptly cast on another. I should have several, since I have the coldest hands in the world.

The kiddo had his first soccer game last weekend. Does that officially make me a soccer mom? I don't think I'm ready for that title yet.

So--here's my list of randomness for this week.

What I'm watching - Corner Gas. WGN just started airing episodes last night, and I'm hooked.
What I'm reading - Laurell K. Hamilton's " Incubus Dreams". I'm trying to do this whole "read a book a week" thing. Part of that is exploring new authors that I've never read. Always looking for suggestions. I'll read anything.
What I'm listening to- this week is a random week. I go from Dr. Dre to the Grateful Dead in 0-2 seconds. I'm just keeping the iPod on random.

I'm also starting the major diet today! No more Little Debbie Cakes! No more chocolate! (Except for maybe just a little dark chocolate. It's good for the old ticker, I hear.)

I'm still here!!!!

Okay, I know I haven't posted in months, but I've decided to at least start posting once a week. I have so many things on the needles, that it's insane. I have major project ADD.
Here's the rundown:
1) Cedar Creek socks from BMFA in STR Farmhouse - I'm just past the gusset on the second sock. I'm moving slow because I a) have way too many projects going and b) it's too damned hot to wear socks.
2) Tiny socks - I'm making little tiny socks out of scrap sock yarn for Christmas ornaments. I've done about 10.
3) Socks for Vance - My kiddo asked for socks, so I'm doing him a pair of simple socks in this green Trekking that I have.
4) Wrist Warmers - I've been wanting to make a pair, because my hands are always cold, so I'm doing the Knitty Gritty Wristlets from Marnie McLean in some leftover L&V. I'm almost done with the second one.
5) Chevron Scarf from LMKG- I'm doing this in two crazy colors of KnitPicks Memories- Hawaii and Spring Prairie. It's GORGEOUS and so bright and Frank-ish that I've decided to call it the "Costanza Scarf".
6) (Yes, I have 6 things on the needles) Ballband Dishcloth from MDK - In beige and black Peaches n Cream.

Other than that, this is what I'm doing--

What I'm working on- Getting a Ruben Studdard concert off without a hitch.

What I'm watching - Yesterday, I watched the Oxygen marathon of Pasadena. They do this once a year, and I watch the entire show every time. Love it!

What I'm reading - "A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore....LOVE it!

What I'm listening to- Don't laugh...My Chemical Romance

So...until next time...I promise it won't be two months!
