Last night my local yarn store had an olympic party. So much fun watch opening ceremonies. For this year's project I am knitting the vodka lemonade sweater. I am unsure if I will actually finish the project. Along with the sweater, I am knitting all the family members fair isle Christmas stockings. To get that project finished, I will have to knit one a week. Along with good news my sister Nicole is expecting her second child. We are very excited. I look forward knitting baby items. Hopefully, I will get everything knitted in a timely manner.

Finishing projects

This pass week, I was in northern Michigan on assignment. I feel I get a gold star of valor for taking this group in February. Fortunately it only snowed two days and only two inches. Good news I finished the first sock of Cookie A's Monkey sock. It is very pretty. I think I have first sock blues. But I promised this year I would use my stash.

Over a Year Already


It has been almost a year since I wrote.  Last year was a very profitable year for me as a digital dental radiography instructor.  I co wrote a chapter in a dental assisting textbook.  That was very educational for me.  Plus all the Christmas I accomplished on the planes for work.  For a grand total 18 hats and 5 scarves and 10 pairs of  mittens.  For this year I have tested designs for Mindy Wilkes.  She has done beautiful work.  I have finished Wolf Moon with Chunky Ella Rae for January.  I finished February's Snow Moon in Jojoland 100% Cashmere.  I think that was the most beautiful design yet.  I can't wait for her March design.  To say the least my mother has taken claim for both designs.  I can't help but give it to her.  Her eyes brighten so much. 

This week I have a meeting in Chicago for my company.  I have converted at least on of my friend's to start knitting.  Shelley wants to learn how to knit a hat.  My other friend Christine wants to learn cables.  It will definately be a whooly meeting in Chicago.
