Finished Gem

Ready for the New Year, I have finished the first sock of the Rare Gem in Socks that Rock. I think 2007 is going to be a great year, or at least I am going to try to make it one. Also, something good that happened to me today was that I was carded at the grocery store when buying some wine. The check out lady said I didn't look anywhere near 45! That made my day.

A Christmas Poem

Here is a Christmas poem written by my 12 year old niece...


Christmas is coming and everyone’s singing,
Carols and laughing is all you’ll be hearing!

Make sure you’re not greedy so Santa will come,
Or you’ll be stuck with coal and no FUN!

Presents and joy is what you can’t miss,
Especially under the mistle toe….
Kiss, kiss, kiss!

So whatever your Christmas turns out to be,
Know that Santa is watching both you and me!

E.A. 2006

New Socks

I have been busy since Saturday knitting a pair of socks out of the new Socks that Rock yarn that came in the mail. The colorway is called Rare Gem. I want to have them finished by Saturday, although I don't think I'll make it. I'm almost done with the first one.

Happy Blogiversary

Happy Blogiversary! My blog is now 2 years old, and I've had lots of fun. It doesn't seem like it could already be that long.

Winter Scarf

I am still working on my winter scarf, it will be done at some point soon. I haven't had a lot of time to work on it, but I am trying to squeeze a few moments in here or there.

Knitting Tension

A great way to relieve tension in your neck and shoulders after knitting for a long period of time is to get one of these:

I bought a couple of videos to go along with it and it is very relaxing and stretches your muscles out. The nice thing about the ball is that I can actually do the excercises, unlike the Pilates video I bought.

As far as knitting is concerned, I am finishing up some old projects I started last year. I will post picks when they are done.
