So today’s thoughts: I got to drive down the new road! I know this makes me a total dork, but I have watched that road being built over the past 5 years or so and I got to drive on it today! They had previously completed an overpass that was awesome, because I hadn’t ever seen one go up piece by piece before, but because I never have reason to exit there I have never used it, just...
30 days of knitting (11-13)
11: Do you have a “Knitter Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share! All knitters I know are awesome! My friend A**** is pretty awesome. Her stuff always knits up so evenly and looks like the picture! I tend to follow patterns half-way so my stuff never looks like the picture. She’s pretty awesome. 12: Where do you keep your stash?

I just can’t decide on what stitch to use. I have a panda that has all its parts but needs to be put together and stuffed. I didn’t like the pattern so I may just have a...
Day 2! (30 days o'knitting)
2: What is currently on your needles? Currently I have dog parts and a floofy scarf on my needles. I have to make a set of ears and a tail to finish a doggie draft dodger for a friend. The tinseltown ribbony yarn scarf has been on the needles as a “knit when I’m not in the mood for a thinking project” for a while now. A friend worked on it this evening while I made dog feet. ...
30 Days of Knitting Day 1
1: What was your first finished project? Technically this was a garter stitch triangle cat toy. The cat promptly hid it under the couch. She was not thrilled with my new-found skill.
