Let's go back . . . way back

In case you've not read your email or blogs lately, I'm posting a link to the funniest post I've read in a long time. It's been circulating in one form or another via email for the last month or so. I got it in an email from my sis, then decided to try to find the source. After much hunting, I found Johnny Virgil, an extremely funny guy. His post made me have to hunt down my inhaler from laughing so hard, I could hardly breathe!

So, get ready to step into the Wayback Machine, and check this out!

Need a laugh?

No, don’t look at my latest knitting fiasco – suffice it to say that I’ve frogged back 12 rows! Check out these hee-larious clips from my favorite clip-site, Clipmarks.

Don’t blame me if you laugh till you cry!

Get along, little cable doggie!

I love cables. There, I've said it. There's something about the twists and turns that is provoking and grounding - I want to follow them! But, they are soothing at the same time. I'm loving working on my Great American Aran Afghan; still plugging away at this square, but almost ready to bind off.

I'm thinking of making this beauty soon out of the Araucania Nature Wool that I got to make the Afghan in the first place. Maybe I should get some new Malabrigo, though. It would be incredibly soft, wouldn't it?

Or, maybe I should take this workshop from a pro, and bring along my copy of her Figheadh Aran Hat Pattern to work on. Then, I could take this class from Nichole to finish the hat for a Christmas present! Choices, choices...

Maybe I should just follow the cable square I'm already working on to its end and start the next square first, huh? I've got enough WIPS as it is, other presents to make, as Christmas is coming!

I'm baa-aack . . .

Can't believe that I'm really here, back at my own keyboard in my own home! Seems like the last thing I remember, I was kidnapped by a bunch of kids trying to put on a musical. Yeah, and it was lots of hard work and sleepless nights, but it was a huge success! Then, they let me go home!

Now, it's back to the day-to-day life that I left behind for a while. I've been knitting a bit for friends during my hiatus from this life, and looking up dog sweater patterns for the new Chihuahua boys in my sister's life, Heffie and Picolino. I'm doing a keyhole scarf as a gift for her, and working on my squares for my Great American Afghan. I miss my knitting buddies! I'll have to stop in at Knot Another Hat for a fix!

Until I can get some pics loaded, here's the coolest quiz I've taken in a long time! Being a total nerd and geek for sci-fi, I was very pleased with the scoring. It was right on, as I so loved Stargate SG-1, that my family not-so-lovingly referred to the night it was on as, "Stargate Friday." They knew better than to ask me for anything beyond a bowl of soup while I watched that week's episode. Here's how much I loved that show: I still haven't been able to make myself watch the final episode on the DVR. That is just sad, isn't it?

More soon!

You scored as SG-1 (from Stargate)

You are versatile and diverse in your thinking. You have an open mind to that which seems highly unlikely and accept it with a bit of humor. Now if only aliens would stop trying to take over your body.

Moving like Greased Lightning

I've been busy - with volunteering in our performing arts group for "Grease" this fall (actually, in 5 weeks!!!), and with knitting.

I'm assistant to the director - my sis, Suzanne - for this production. It's a nice change from the costuming that I've done in previous productions. Lots of running around and doing things in the community. Very interesting and fun! If you're anywhere near The Dalles, OR the last two weeks of September, be sure to get tickets at Klindt's Booksellers or at the door to see us!

In other news, I've been knitting a square for a woman on one of my groups who's facing a difficult illness. The listmom of the group is going to join all our squares into an afghan for her. Absolutely love the pattern, and I might actually make an afghan for someone out of it! It was great to see it appear from the needles, like magic!

I tried to get the Lotus Blossom Tank going for an event I attended last weekend, but, alas, it was not meant to be. I kept getting messed up on the count, and the Lotus Blossoms looked more like a mess of blackberry vines! I did love the Bamboo, though. I won't give up, just put it in time-out until the snows drag me down and make me want to knit for summer!

Gotta get going - must deliver the tickets to the bookstores today, so we can begin selling out! ;o)

LIfe Path?

Here's a fun little time-waster from

Your Life Path Number is 8

Your purpose in life is to help others succeed

You are both a natural leader and a natural success. You are also a great judge of character.
You have a head for business and finance. You know how to make money.
A great visionary, you can see gold where other people see nothing.

In love, you are very generous - with gifts, time, and guidance.

You love to inspire people, but it can be frustrating when they don't understand your vision.
Great success comes easily for you. But so does great failure, as you are very reckless.
You are confident, and sometimes this confidence borders on arrogance.
