Books & Sew

So I ordered some books on Amazon the other day, I'm very excited to get them. Of course two aren't published yet, but hey what can ya do. Amazon says I won't receive any of them until April and that sucks. Now I need to get some sewing done.


Fingerless Mitts for the Man in my Life

They're finished. Pics coming soon.


Yarn and Magazine

It's a good day when you get yarn and a knitting magazine in the mail. I also feel better :D Time to peruse, and fondle new yarn.

Happy V day!!!

Happy Valentines day to all of you, together or single!!!


Sick yuck

Still feeling ucky yuck, but better than last night. Just wanted to let you know.


Fingerless sweet potatoes

One down, one to go. I need to cast on for the second and hopefully it will go better than the first. There were a lot of changes made so that it was longer and still fit, I also put on more stitches at the thumb at first. Anyway, I first need to feel better before I work on anything, I have some kind of stomach thing that is making me feel absolutely awful and its very painful in my belly.

C4 had his first taste of sweet potatoes last night, he loved them. We'll be doing some more tomorrow, its good that he likes them cause I sure as heck dont.

I need to go lay down.




Why is it that every SCA event that our family goes to is freezing cold??? Anywho, we got to the event around noon, the directions got us lost but we eventually found our way. I wish we had set up the kids in the common area instead of fighting so I could socialize more, lesson learned. For $1.00 I got a drop spindle, it looks like its only worth a buck but hopefully it will work. I knit for the two hours to the event only to find out that I didn't decrease fast enough and had to rip back on T's mitt. Fortunately there was a life line. Green Jenny had a beautiful dress that I covet to make, she said it was a pattern that is just passed around in Nordskogen or was that Northshield?!?! Anywho, if you know the pattern could you help me to attain a copy so I can make me some, they look comfy and versatile and breastfeeding friendly. I would even where the head piece if it didn't give me a headache. Sorry about the lack of pics, they're coming and also for the babble but that's what this is for right.

On other SCA news, we are going to Lupercalia on the 17th of this month and Gulf Wars in MS in March, anyone else out there going? I didn't know who to pre-reg under group wise so I just did Stromfels. Hopefully we can set up near some Northshielders.

Well C4 is crying for food, so I should go.
