I am still here
We actually started looking at house yesterday but don't have our exact price range set. The realtors are coming out on Wed to take a look at our house and give us a ballpark. We bought the house for $244,000 five years ago adn houses around use have sold anywhere from $300,000 - $500,000. Big Ballpark. I am not looking forward to the stress of buying, selling and moving but the houses we looked out, while further away from the city, will be a great and much needed change.
I do plan to knit today. A couple years ago I made a pullover sweater based on Glampyre's Boobholder. The sleeves are a bit tight so am going to re-knit those and work on Thorn and Thistle while I tend to a sick husband, watch the Oscars and worrying about the whole house buying process.

I like the repetition
Trying not to buy yarn for a while (Does this sound like a broken record?) but I am headed to Joann's today to buy something for work. Orangina has been calling my name lately and I may be tempted to buy some yarn for that. Honestly- this needs to stop. I have my next sweater and yarn waiting in the wings. I don't need another project right now. Wish me luck against the yarn buying temptations.

Have you seen my mojo?
Maybe this weekend will be more knitting friendly. Little League practice starts tomorrow so that will give me a good 2 hours of alone time to knit and aside from a trip to the bookstore and Bubble tea (my latest obsession) Sunday looks free. Mojo hunt is on!

I also rented the Meg Swanson Fair Isle Sweater video(?!) from the library and watched part of that last night. I got to the arm hole portion and then Heroes was one so I will have to watch the rest later. I am excited to see how the steeks work. Overall, it has been very informative and has some great tips esp. about how to increase evenly in the round. I always have problems figuring that one out. Math is Hard- to quote Barbie.

Just a memory

Also got the new IK yesterday and love Stefanie's sweater. I have a Sitcom Chic in Cotton-ease that may be frogged and resurrected for this. It was one of the first sweaters I knit and I never wear it. It isway too big and has sat in my closet for 2 years. This cable sweater would be great for the Spring.

A potential frog
Tuesday, February 06, 2007
I did start a new pair of socks yesterday using Trekking in a blue self-striping. I lost the label so I not sure on the exact number.
I knit of forgot about the Socktopia themes for the month and started right away with this since it was something I had frogged before and it was starting to become a tangled mess in my stash. Mindless stockinette knitting is so nice after using a pattern stitch on almost every other project you have going.
Off to find myself some soup for lunch...

Super Knitting Saturday
Needles: Size 3 Addis
Finish Time: 1 Week
I finished the Fair Isle hat and love it. Do you notice something alittle off though? I didn't until I was well into the decreasing.
Yes, somewhere along the line I knit 2 of the "X" pattern repeats together. If this was a sweater, I would have frogged back but since this was my first project, I gave myself some creative licensing and let it go. Design Element, right?
Waterfall Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks
Socks That Rock - Bleeding Hearts
Size 1 Addis
Finish Time: About 3 weeks
The Waterfall Rib socks are also done. These fit perfectly thanks to Sensational Knitted Socks. They are blocking now. This was my first lace style sock. I like them alot but I am tired of yarnovers. Next up- plain old stockinette socks.

Weekend plans (or nothing going)
Monday is the Purly Girls Yarn Swap/Sale. I am pretty excited for this and really need to go through my stash. I don't know how much desireable yarn but I am going to bring it all because you never know.
My new assistant is also a hair stylist on the side. We started talking about my hair yesterday. Is it wierd to have you co-worker/person you manage do something like cut and color you hair? She said she would so it but also understands if I think it is kind of weird. I am torn.
I have started planning this year's VIP trip to Tahoe at work. It isn't until June and I am so ready to go!
