Yeah Babee!!

On Friday, my DD went and took her driving test and passed with flying colors. I knew she could do it because she doesn't scare me when I ride with her anymore :o) Man, time goes by so fast, she's so grown hoo, that means I'm old...yuk! But I am definitely proud of her! Great job Britt!!

My Favorite Accessory

Well, I live in the high desert of Central Oregon so my hands stay very dry. The air here has no humidity so my skin is basically dry all of the time. I found this at a local yarn store and fell in love.

It's called "Knitter's Little Helper" and it's from Blue Sky Alpacas. It keeps my hands moist so that I don't snag my knitting, plus I love the smell of it.

Do I have a life??

180, I think not....
You put an X next to movies you've seen and if it's more than 85, you have no life...

Finished Objects

OK, So I have been doing some knitting and here a couple of FO's to prove it. These are my February socks, the famous Pomatomus sock pattern. These I made with the Mama Llama yarn that I got from Amy in SP9. The yarn is soft and yummy, I love the colors

This is my DD modeling the Chevron Moebius that I made. It's getting too warm for this now but it sure was nice in the cold of Winter!! I found the pattern online somewhere and I used Cascade 200 yarn. Nice and toasty!

Stay tuned for more, I'm getting trigger happy with my new camera, yippee!!!

Basketball Jones

My DD played basketball for the first time this year, she did OK but still has a lot to learn. Here she is (left) with her friend from the team. I kind of miss the games, it was pretty fun. Hopefully she'll do it again next year!

Finally some pictures....

OK, so I got a new camera and finally had the time to sit down and upload some stuff. Here are the presents from my SP9 that I was unable to post before:

Here is the box of goodies

Here is the yarn that was inside, so nice and soft.

This is the book that I received, I casted on the bag on the front, very pretty colors

Here is a look at the rest of the goodies in the box

Everything was so great, sorry it took me so long to post it. Has anyone had trouble uploading pictures to the new Blogger? I finally figured it out. Next I will post pics of my finished objects!!

Paxil is EVIL!!!

I'm currently tapering off of it and trying to get totally off but it is one of the hardest things I've done! Withdrawals are so bad that I'm tempted to stay on the shit for ever!!!
