Drop One, Pick Up One!

Welcome to my world of knitting and crocheting. I will try to post as often as possible with my projects and ideas. I am new to this so please bear with me.

Well DH did it again

I got 2 more boxes in the mail today from Things Remembered. They are presents for Valentines Day. (sorry no pics today). I will definitely show off my gifts as soon as I open them. I can't believe he found the time to do this for me.

In knitting news, I joined one more KAL. I plan on knitting Odessa. Grumperina just keeps coming up with all of these great patterns that I can't resist making. My plan is to cast on for this after the Olympics since I am still working on the Jaywalkers and need to get those done before the 10th preferably. I also have a kitty pi on the needles that I work on intermittently. I also worked on my spinning a bit yesterday and hopefully this evening will get to plying it. Which means that tomarrow should have some good knitting pics. I have to start preparing for my SuperBowl knitting. My SuperBowl knitting will consist of finishing some WIP's and maybe a little barbie knitting.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

One of my Fave poems as a child was.....

I'm being eaten by a Boa Constrictor,
A Boa Constrictor,
A Boa Constrictor.
I'm being eaten by a Boa Constrictor,
And I don't like it one bit.

Whadaya know, it's nibblin' my toe.
Oh gee, it's up to my knee.
Oh fiddle, it's up to my middle.
Oh heck, it's up to my neck.
Oh dread, it's mm-mm-mm-mm...

Shel Silverstein

Olympic helps and tips

If you haven't been to Beadlizards site today you have to go check it out. She has a lot of great tips to warm up for the olympics. Can you beleive all the hype with this? I love it. My training has constisted of checking out yarns and books so far. I think I have an idea which patterns I am going to use, but I am still deciding on some different yarns. Sorry there are no pics today. I have been really busy these last couple days. Also please forgive me for yesterdays pics. I was in a hurry.

Best hubby ever and Jaywalker update

I have the best hubby ever. Even though he is off fighting a war in Iraq he had time to get me some anniversary presents. They arrived unexpectedly in the mail today. I can not wait to open them. Unfortunately our Anniversary isn't until the 19th of Feb. On the knitting front I haven't been doing a whole lot. This is where I am on the Jaywalkers. I am not sure about the colorway but I do like the pattern.
