Day 63, March 23

Guild night.

Day 62, March 22

Today my time that was not spent at work was spent in one of my favorite places... my bed.

Day 61, March 21

Shower gift finished and drying. A week early too!

Day 60, March 20

So I got to the end of the body of this baby cardigan and don't like the huge flair of it.. So I pulled it apart and ripped back and knit it with an increase row every 4 rows instead if every 2. Much better. Only thing left is the cuffs for the sleeves and blocking.

Day 59, March 19

Dinner with Jenny, Don and Kate, then drinks with the mag six girls. A great end to a busy week. I was very tempted to take this cutie home with me.

Dinner date with my favorite person.

Day 57, March 17

Although I did knit today, it wasn't photo worthy, so Bella steped in with her usual cuteness. And sometimes, I'm still amazed at the iPhone's camera.

Day 56, Marcb 16

Cookin dinner and filling out the census. The knitting part of my brain is still on vacation after all the classes with Margaret last weekend.

Day 55, March 15

Although I was feeling yucky today, it was beautiful outside. I can't wait for spring.

Day 54, March 25

The problem I gave with knitting around people is that I get to talking and not watching what I'm doing and end up having to rip back to fix mistakes. Which is what I did yesterday and had to fix today.

Day 53, March 13

Day two of our knitting workshop with Margaret. Today's classes were 7 things that can make of break a sweater and a sampling if stitches. I learned a lot and had a great time. Although, I'm exausted and my brain is on overload.

Today was the first day of our knitting workshop, mosaics and advanced finishing. I learned so much, from slip stitch knitting to short rows to grafting and tubular cast on and bind off. A great day of knitting.

I spent the day cleaning and doing some computer stuff for the knitting workshop next weekend. The only visual thing I did today was finish up the knitting journal cards for the project boxes.

Day 46, March 6

Tonight we went the Addy awards. It's an annual local graphic design/advertising award show. This year it was a mascrade theme, and we won a Silver Addy for a job for the honors college I designed.

Day 45, March 5

I didn't actually take a picture today, but Jordan sent me this saying it would be us in 40 years. I'd say he's right on, except he would have a pipe not a cigarette.

All the free stuff for our knitting workshop has taken over my kitchen table. I guess it's a good problem, but I'm glad it's less than two weeks away.

Man room invasion! I've taken over Jordan's room with blocking my mom's blanket. It's 58 x74, and that was the only room with enough floor space and limited puppy access.

Day 30, Feb. 18

Surprise... I came home today to find a box of goodies at my front door. Since it's for goodie bags for my knitting guild I'm keeping it a secret, so this is as much I'm going to give away.

Day 29, Feb. 17

I was on my way to work this morning when a lady pulled up beside me and said... "There is fire coming out of your back tire!" After a minute of shocked incomprehension, I pulled over, and checked it out, but didn't see or smell anything wrong. So my next stop was Discount Tire less than a mile away. These guys are great, and didn't laugh too much when I told them what that lady said. Turns out I really needed new rear brakes.

Day 26, Feb. 14

Same story different chapter. We went to Johnsonville today for Valentines Day lunch/dinner so I knitted in the car on the way. I was working on the seed stitch boarder, finally almost done, and ready to bind off the million stitches. When I was about 50 stitches from the end, I looked down and realized had less than a yard of yarn left!! So, now I'm in the process of backing out the binded off edge and last knitted row to bind off again. I was so close! But no, this really is the never ending blanket.

Day 25, Feb. 13

Saturday, just like a little kid, Jordan woke me up early to go play in the snow.  It was BEAUTIFUL outside. Thick white snow on the ground with a bright blue sky.

Bella still wasn't sure at first.

But after a few minutes, she was off making tracks in the snow.

And rolling in it and just having a good time. 


We had our fun too. Jordan with his pipe.  

And me with my snow angel.

However, it started melting fast. By the time I remembered to measure we had about 6.5 inches left, I'd say we had closer to 7.5 inches on Friday night. As much fun as it was, I'm not too sad it's gone. I'm not a cold weather kind of girl. I just wished it had either started on Thursday or waited untill Sunday. What's snow with out a snow day??

Day 24, Feb. 12

So.. I've been a bit distracted from my knitting by the blizzard* we had this weekend. Friday around 3pm it started and kept on snowing till around 11pm.

*In South Carolina, a blizzard is anything that sticks to the ground.

 When I got home after going to the grocery store with all the crazy people stocking up on the basics, our yard was already covered.

By the time Jordan got home, so was the sidewalks and driveway.

So of course, we took the opportunity to play in the snow. 

Bella, however, was not so impressed. In fact, I don't think she liked it at all.
