Is it Friday yet???

I know, I know. Asking way to early in the week…but I really want Friday to come. The weekends here lately just haven’t been lasting as long as I would like them to.

Remember the gloves I made for my godmother? (aka: the OSU gloves). Well, here is a few pics she sent me of her with her “made from scratch” gloves. And sitting next to her is my AWESOME mom….HI MOM!!! (me waving)
For some reason I can’t get the pics to turn out any better, but you get the idea. My silly mom in the last pic with her eyes shut (he he).
Well, that’s about as close to knitting content you’re gettin’ from me until I get my own laptop. Which will hopefully be here real soon. Then I’ll have pics galore. WHOOOO HOOOO!


Whoo Hoo! Count me in!!!

In November of last year (I think), I signed up the the Socks That Rock Club for 2007. Or precertification as it is called. So once I was signed up all that was left to do was pay in January 2007. Well, I did that on 1/5/07. On 1/8/07 I checked my bank account and showed where I had paid the amount needed and then a deposit back into my account of that same amount. WHAT?!?! I thought I was dreaming. You know, such awesome yarn and they were giving me the Club for free? Whoo Hoo! Then I read an email that Blue Moon sent that stated that their bank (which they would not name)thought that the Blue Moon Company was running a yarn scam. The bank obviously did not realize just how many yarn addicts are in the world. And when they saw the same amount of money over and over they froze the account and reimbursed all customers. So, now Blue Moon fixed the online site and now everything is happy honky dory. So COUNT ME IN! I have paid my dues and should get my first goodie package from Blue Moon in February. I am sooooooo excited! I just can’t wait!!

Also, I see a computer of my very own in my near future. As I got a nice return from the IRS and that is one gift I promised myself. Hurry up return and hit my bank. YAY me!

I’m sure I’ll be posting soon. I am almost done with a pair of socks for me. They are turning out great!

Friday Night Knitter

This past weekend my girls were with their father. Sooooo, I decided that I was going to take my happy butt to the “Knitter’s Night Out”, held every 2nd Friday of every month at Heavenly Creations, one of my lovely LYS’s. I took my
sock that I am currently working on (I’ll post pics later) and Miss Tonia took a footie she was working on. Had a good time. The place was packed. So packed, that I ended up sharing a bench with a very nice lady who was crocheting with a steele and seed beads (yikes, tiny stuff) and Miss Tonia ended up on a kiddy chair. Later we ended up in two of the more comfy spots in the middle of the room. That was nice.

Once we were done there we decided to go “out”. So we ended up at a place called City Limits. We played a few games of pool (aka: moving the balls around the table) and had a couple of drinks. Well, after the drinks set in we started to get hot, plus the fact that the place just wasn’t hoppin’ we left. So then we decide to go home and change into lighter shirts so we don’t get so hot and went to Rackum’s, another bar. We walked in, got a stamp to verify we were old, went to the restroom and left. That place was dead and full of nothing but older people just sitting around. So we headed out to Lucky’s, yet another bar. Where we stayed for the remainder of the evening drinking, laughing and playing pool (still just moved the balls around the table). Once we closed the place we had to go get breakfast. Where else of coarse? Tee Jay’s. We were there almost before most the the bar scene was, so we got our food pretty fast and got outta there before it got to loud and crazy.

I’m not one that is much for the bar scene, but it was kinda nice to do something out of the ordinary. I usually am one to keep to myself and stay home. Sometimes it would be nice to have someone to snuggle with when I stay home but I don’t think I want that full time yet. I haven’t even went out on a date yet, and at the end of February will be 1 year that I’ve been single. I was in the last relationship for near 13 years, with the father of my 2 girls. I don’t want that kind of relationship again. So I will definately take my time finding exactly what I want. I’ll call it my shopping time.

But I definately need to go out and practice my pool playing skills. I used to have a pool table in my basement and was what I considered myself to be an ok player. I even have my own stick (not a cheap one either). But Friday night I just played slop and bad slop at that. I can usually call the shot I’m aiming for. Maybe the alcohol had something to do with it. Yeah, not enough! Hah!


Pics that I promised

Okay, let’s see if blogger will work with me…
First off, here are a few pics of the “Go Bucks” gloves that I made for my godmother. They started out as this 50 gram ball of Lorna’s Laces in OSU (I think that’s the name) colorway.

Then it became this awesome pair of gloves. What’s that? Oh, you want to see the cable up close? Okay…

I’m pretty proud of these. I have a few others that I have made including a pair of fingerless gloves but these are my favorites.
And this is what I had left of that 50 gram ball of yarn once the gloves were done.
Okay, since Christmas is long gone I can now show the pics of my mom and her special gift from me that brought tears to her eyes as she read the card that I wrote…
HA! She usually makes me cry with her sentimental gifts. Well this year it was my turn. She loved it. And so did the rest of my family.
Here is a picture of my skinny Christmas tree. I just love the star… This star has a little history. You see, that star was the very first star that my mom and dad had on their Christmas tree when I was little. It used to have a color wheel inside and once it heated up it would spin and it would give the room a disco effect. I always thought it was the coolest thing. So this star is at least 30 years old and still works. The cord and everything (except the bulb of coarse) is all original.
And Buttercup says…Happy New Year!
