Re: KAL ~ Christmas is Coming! Dec 9-15

Have you ever knit something, and liked it, but didn't REALLY fall in love with it till after you washed it? I just threw Avery's cowgirl longies in the wash and I just really love them all of the sudden.

I have a lot of yarn that doesn't have projects. I find myself not using it now too because of it. Except for my girly stash, I am only buying yarn I have projects for or have some plan for it. So, I have some GN yarn already bought for next fall's outfits simply because I figured if I'm going to order in a MM coop, I might as well order more than 2 skeins. Now, I just need to make time to knit for the projects I have planned in my head.

That's what I call #2, I was too lazy to take our real names out of the pic and since I was just posting it here some already know their "real" names. I try not to post real names much though. Makes it harder for stalkers to find me.

Yay. Are you close enough to her to get free practice?

I have lots planned but I'm not very fast so I have too much time to plan more, and, you know, it kind of snowballs from there...

FX!!!

I've been lurking the last few days and forgetting to post
I'm almost done Brigid's chroma cowl, then back to my Zuzu... I am completely in love with the colorway and now wish I had bought all of it during KP's sale...

Dani - tell more??

No, she's in Ohio, I'm in Oregon. She is hoping to relocate soon, but I think she'll go down to Arizona with my Mom and other sis. They have a house to try to sell etc. and her husband does NOT want to leave his family though so time will tell. She loves the work though, which is awesome in itself.

That is super awesome! now she can come on and help people read their ultrasound pics, 'eh??

I wouldn't say my mojo is improving because most of my days are spent on the computer instead of knitting like they should be but I am getting stuff done.
