Mystery Stole 3

I started it. It is looking very cool. We had a cast on party at a local coffee shop. This was help full, some of us has questions and we all helped each other. And to top off the coolness Melanie's mom was there. I will have pictures of my progress soon. I am using vanilla Zepher and right now size 3 knitpick circulars. With an iridescent beads for the outer border and a lilac beads for the body beads.

I will be honest I normally only have coffee 1 to 2 times a month. This is one of them I went to work at 5 am and need a little help to stay awake. I have my coffee iced with soymilk. But for those of you who need your coffee this is a very cool Machine .

Summer Weather

Well even though summer in not truly here it is weather wise. 80's during the day and 50's - 60's at night. Now the ceiling fans go on and I take the swamp coolers out and make sure that they work. I need to fix the curtains to keep out the sun and have to water plants much more often.

Mystery Stole 3

I got the yarn and beads today. I am still not sure which beads I am going to use but I love the feal of the yarn. I will be using zephyr yarn in Vanilla and some beads. I do know know right now which beads I will be using my choices are White, Light Blue, Peacock, Root Beer, or Lilac. I figure that I will decide after I see the first clue.

scarf exchange

Yaa!!! I got my scarf today and it came with the coolest stuff. I love the smell of the lotion, vanilla and the soap, I love the smell of cinnamon. It is the perfect type of tea and I am eating some of the Chocolate right now. This scarf is perfect, it is wide enough and I love the color.

My zucchini has to blossoms! This is very cool, especially because the plant is only around 7 inches tall.

I admit that my front yard does not look all that great, but my brother and I have been digging it up. Only about a 4th is done right now but you can see that we are making an effort. When I got home tonight there was a note in my door say I need to mow my yard are they will get the city to make me do it. This annoyed me and made me mad and sad. I am like it will be done.

Knit in Public Day

Saturday was fun. A few different clubs got together and all knit in public. At the most there was 30-40 people there. The funny thing was right after I got there 2 people asked me to teach them how to make socks from the toe up. Widdershins by is a good pattern for toe up socks, it is the pattern that I am using to make the undulating rib socks.

Then I went to a Stash Bash Yarn Sale and Swap that one of the knitting groups that I go to was holding. It was a lot of fun. I traded for some cool sock yarn and got rid of most of the cotton yarn I had. When I knit with cotton my hands start to hurt.

Vacations are but you really need to get ready for work before the day you go back. I spent at least 30 min looking for my work keys, lunch box, and name tag. All things I needed today. I found it a little funny and will plan better next time.

Any way for the most part it was a good vacation. The only problem was the flight out. My connecting flight was though Dallis, Fort Worth on a day where it was closed in the morning due to thunder storms. We did get a flight out though, I was worried because it was air force graduation that day as well and most flights out were booked. Instead of getting to BWI at 5:20 pm my brother and I got in at 2:40 am and did not get to the hotel until 5 am.

I was up at 8:30 to go to the Natural History Museum. Well really to get my sister and her children ready to go.
