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!
