I can't figure this picture thing out

For some reason, all of my past images on this site have disappeared. Maybe it's time to move from Blogger..... I also feel that this blog has become v ery boring since I can't post pictures at the moment, so I will share one of my favorite pics of my son Liam. He's modeling a very stylish fez given to me by the ad agency that we work with.



He's so handsome!!

The Things That Make Me Giggle

I'm sorry, but this cracks me up no matter how many times I see it. And this makes me laugh also.
Everytime! Ha!

On a much more knitting note, I have 1 foot completed of Cozy and I celebrated with starting a scarf for my mother for Christmas. It is knit in a sideways fan pattern that was on a pair of socks in the Summer '04 Interweave Knits. It is being made out of Koigu...mmmmmmm. I also spun my first 35 yards of yarn. Another 5 oz to go and I may have enough for somthing or other. I must go back and get more of this green it is really turning out amazing. The dyed rummage sale yarn has so far been turned into 1 pair of clogs for my MIL. The rest will be a doggie sweater and maybe a doggie sweater or felted backpack.

Have you seen the Knitty Surprise? It's a great one ya'all.

It always amazes me what my son will grasp the concept of next. He is 2 1/2 and really just started talking up a storm in the last 4 months or so. His 2 new words are "need" and "buy". Everything is "I NEED applt juice." "I NEED paint." or it's "Momma buy paint?" "Momma buy apple juice?" And he knows the difference between make and buy. Crazy that he graps the concept of buy. It is so complex if you think about it. Ah well.

Oh yeah, I got 1 1/2 feet of hair cut off. I have the same hairstyle as Betty Rubble now - I love it!

It's like not having part of me here...

So my home computer is broken and I am sad. I can't upload photos and I have to bring my work computer home every night. Who would have guessed that I would get this upset over something as simple as this?

On a good note, I totally scored this weekend at a rummage sale adn found a sweater handknit out of cream Lamb's Pride. Snatched that bad boy up for 50 cents and frogged the whole thing and dyed it a pretty blue/purple. Dems gonna be some felted clogs for me MIL!

I also learned how to spin on a drop spindle last night at the SnB. I am in love and want to do it all the time. My goal is to have all this pretty green roving spun to make a shawl out of. Apparently I am doing pretty well. Who would ahve guessed?

Answers to the Question and Why I'm a Nerd

So there is something wrong with this blogger thing, as the comments that I get on this site and not being sent to my email. What's cool about this is that it is a little surprise when I check to make sure that my updates are working. So I am answering the questions that have come up.

I used 3 balls of Waterspun Weekend for my Clapotis. I only did 6 instead of 7 repeats on the first diagonal, though, so it is skinnier than planned, but I did all the repeats in the middle.

Also, Amy from Knitty left me a happy comment that she was happy about my review of her book. So call me a nerd, but she is like celebrity to me. I am wowed by her Star Power. Don't get me wrong, because of the business, I have been able to meet a few celebrities in my day, but since I am not all into the acting thing, those people do not wow me as much as getting a happy note from Miss Knitty herself. And that is why I am an official nerd.

Yay!!!!...Noooo!

So I fanlly finished a few things - Yay! Now I can't find the cord to download the pictures that I took of them - Nooo! So I'll just tell you. The Clapotis is finished and turned out really well. I would highly suggest blocking it when completed. I have actually gotten pretty good at blocking things now that I figured out what that word "blocking" actually meant. I ahve been going blocking carzy, blocking old project too. I finished my son's scarf and a fuzzy little skull cap for him for fall. He loves it. We went to Gymboree the other night and he ran in telling everyone that I made his hat. I love that he give props to his Mumma! I also finished a skinny scarf for me out of 2 of the skeins of the Blue Sky Bulky that I recieved.

Even more fun - Secret Pal 2 Two has started. I ahve been going a little nutty with mine. I don't want to divulge any secrets, but she will be very happy. I can't wait to see what comes in the mail with mine.

Also, I recieved 4 skeins of Manos in a pretty grey/green color (Uranium) from Cookie in Chicago (Thanks Cookie!) and am debating what to do with them. It takes 7 for the hooded sweater in the yarn Girl's Guide and I can order that colorway online. But that means that I have to knit a sweater, which I still can't see myself doing. Hmmmm...what should I make.

So my best friend just emailed me and said that she ran into my ex-boyfriend Brandon last night and he wants to meet up. Why can't I remember an ex-BF named Brandon? WTF, dude.
