moving is yucky!

wow. this move has almost done me in. normally i pack i move whatever. this time i think i may actually be at the end of my rope. id better tie some yarn on the end of it and see if i can keep a grip. :0) i am offically in california and i am really sorry if i have missed anything while i was in transit. please send me an email if there was anything important that i missed :0) i will be checking everyones blogs and stuff throughout the week to get caught up. i have missed you all and am happy to be back on the internet! yay for contact with my hogwarts friends. ok now to sleep and then up early to keep unpacking. my MIL is here from tulsa "helping" and my mom is coming to "keep me sane" tomorrow. while MIL is all "screech! screech! why are there still boxes of stuff around you have been here a whole 2 days!" my moms like "whatevs- cram it under the bed" both are a bit extreem ends of the spectrum and im somewhere in the middle tearing my hair out. hahahaha (hugs)

And I had to take a break...

I had to take a break from my pal's socks. I made her another little something for her for this swap, and I knit a whole bunch of little coffee sleeves which were so simple they are the sort of knitting you should take along if they ever send you to the locked ward, and then I knit a bit for another person, and now I have to get back to these socks which I think are not half as cool as my spoilee. Ah, well, she will end up with half a dozen hand made consolation prizes and a pair of socks in the middle - sometimes that is just the way it is...

hey kids! let's put on a show!

OK only a child of the 50's, or earlier, will get that reference. I posted this in the comments below but want to post it as a entry. Anybody want to join me in starting a Hogwarts Hat exchange on Ravelry?

I won't take up room here but I'm off to Grandma's little world, (my main blog) to post my ideas. I'll also put it up on the Ravelry area as a question. In order to start a new group you have to have three people reply to the post on metagroups. Grandma

Swap question

Does anyone know if there is a Hogwarts Hat/Mitten exchange???

I just got a copy of "Favorite Mittens" by Robin Hansen and the patterns made me think of how many of the movies show winter/yule (esp. Prizoner of Azkaban) and thought .... hmmm, I wonder.

So does anyone know if there is??

I need to get moving!

Wow! The deadline is almost here and I am still working on sock number 2. I need to focus, forget the house work, let the kids miss a meal or two and get my socks done.


Great galloping gnargles! Wouldn't you know it, now that I am coming into the homestretch of my socks .... my yarn has gone missing!

I am working with small hanks of yarn and kept the extra ones I didn't need in a box so they wouldn't get dirty -- I took out some because I thought I was going to have to 'felt' it on so I wouldn't run short ... but I lost the last two small hanks of the other color!!

Oh my .... what am I to do? I have enough of the other color to finish it but then I will have this big patch of color at the other end that will throw my pattern off ...
