Is it really better late than never?

You Deside! I'm late blogging. I'm really behind on blogging. Yet still only a shorty span of time to chat.

Quick TTP update:
Mum and Dad did visit
No blood was shed while they were here
All but Mum and Steve becuase ill with the flu - nasty
We took turns, as one was feel better the other would get sick.
I've cleaned up lots of vomit and still have never found the most effective way to handle it.
Kids are bag at school - all three of them this year, Calebs in 5th, Declan 3rd, and Madison Kindgergarten. They love it and are having agreat time. I'm their new PTO leader and it's going to be fun (I keep telling myself), but am looking forward to how the kids feel when they see me involved in their lives at school.

Now here's the big confession, I'm not really knitting anything. After stittches I became in such a funk that what I knit I have to love and so have stalled on everything. I've swuatched and played around and I need to nail it down to a project. This would be a good time to come up with suggestions. Names will be drawn from a hat for each realistic suggestion. Winner will get something fun that I haven't kicked up yet, but it will be cool.

Shout OUt to the following - Marji and Jae - my fun stitchers pals, I have recently abandoned you and am begging for our closeness to return.

Shout out to marina, carrie, deeann, and all the other buddies I've met online. I appreicate reading your blogs and you comments to mind.

SO to my Secret Pal - Amy Proto. The ladies amazing. I can't find the camera and want to get the phots uploaded of the last stash she sent me. It was, as usual, pefect.

I want to chat more and fill you in on what's beeng going on, but I doubt you really need the detaisl, just remember to wash your hands and brush your teeth afterthis read. Then you too, can avoik, the creeppy pedi bugs that are happily invading our lives.

Well, I'm a little out of it. The medicine kicked in fast today and I'm afraid if I continue I'll share private details with you and cry about it in the morning.

So until tomorrow - yes, I think that tomorrow is a realizatic goal - knit some more and email me with what you think the next project should be. Enter as many times as you want and get your name entered in the box with each suggestion

Don't enter me in any box, I'm trying so hard to reduce this stash...but what are you wanting? I know you love cables and texture - I have on my list although it isn't started, the patterns for Eris and Rogue - I understand both are ingeniously written and great to knit - and not so involved that you couldn't just whip one out.
Then again, Eliz I has been a real joy - until I got to all the stockinette sleeeves (have you seen that ongoing debacle?). So get yourself some red yarn and cast on again.
Or are you looking for a new challenge? Some colorwork perhaps? I'm thinking that something really involved may just give you that kick in the pants you're looking for. Go look at Katherine Howard - shapely, which would look fabulous on you, involved and intricate, which would give you something to love. Or the Woolcraft version of Marina - cropped, V neck cardi. I'll email you re that one.
Glad to see you post and to hear that you're feeling better now.
LOL, time to read and edit again - those late night posts after meds will get you everytime dear.
Miss you.

Realistic? Hmm, considering "where you are", a nice scarf with cables! Simple, yet attractive and you can take it with you!

When you "feel better", there are Beadwork and St. Brigid KALs going on.

Jae said...

Pssst... I think Marji already knows about the late night computer fest. Does that mean no bribe for me?

Amy Proto said... was an honor to be mentioned here, as you have so many fans!! I hope you like your last SP package. I was so excited to find another skein of Manos for you in my stash! I love receiving skeins as gifts but my question is what am i going to do with one skein? Take care of yourself and did I mention that I work at Burberry? Any wants or needs feel free to e-mail me.
Take care
Amy P.

Realistic? Is that time, money, interest or all three? I vote for a lovely cable scarf or Rogue, myself.
