Midnight & vest not done

Finished back today. Seamed shoulders and sides during closing
ceremonies & managed to pick up for one "sleeve". Too tired to finish
binding off, so I going to make like my dogs & crawl under the covers.

It's going to be close!

I may need Omega timing for this one. Knit from latice stitch in just
one evening! Sqeezing in a row before spinning, exercise spinning,
class. Only other plans today is to knit & bake oatmeal cinnamon chip
cookies (recipie courtesy of current issue of knit circus magazine www.knitcircus.com

EEK--only 3 days left!

Squeezing in knitting on Ravelympics project while drinking my plain
drive thru coffee (wishing DD could just once get my order right--it
was supposed to be cinnamon hazelnut, they re-made my order because
they tried to give me vanilla with cream & sugar). I guess I should be
glad I got a coffee at all.

Ravelympics 2010

I finally picked my project for Ravelympics. I haven't swatched or finished the 2009 xmas gift sweater for my SIL and the openning ceremony is in just 2 days! Hopefully, I can squeeze in a swatch & post a pic.


The past couple months have been wild....crazy holiday knitting--which has continued beyond the holiday, newly diagnosed food allergy(more about that another day), and a wacky economy has bumped the blog to the bottom of my To Do list. This year, I plan to post more regularly....even if that means with less content.
