I have been out of sorts lately due to my IBS flareups. I've been fatigued and lethargic. I force myself to function despite my foggy mind, but its frustrating. It keeps me from doing things like updating my blogs. I am afraid of blogging unclear and confused thoughts.
I have been unable to attend any of the SnB meetings because of work. It makes me very unhappy, especially because I have a project that needs the professional insight of my fellow knitters. I was unable to finish all of my christmas projects this season, probably because I contiously added people to my list. I am working steady to finish hats and scarves. My family needs them.
Speaking of family, my cousin came home from the Navy for the holidays. I asked my grandfather to give his "too small beanie" to my cousin. My grandfather was chaffed by the idea, despite the fact that it was to small for him. I reminded him of the new beanie that I am knitting and he still huffed. Oh well, what more can I do?
My nephew loved his hat and scarf set. I was so surprised by his excitement. I Had left my camera at my moms house so I was unable to take a picture of him. I will get a picture later. I don't want to offend my nephews vainity. He looked unkept from being in bed for two days after surgery. The scarf was in the washroom drying from being blocked anyway. Speaking of my mom, while at the hospital waiting room, I decided to teach my mom how to knit. I came tho find out she already knew how to knit. Previously, she told me she didn't know how, and that she only crocheted. My shock turned imediately into anger. She lied to me. She didn't wan't to knit her own poncho so she influenced me knit it. That's OK. Her poncho goes to the bottom of the list. If she wants it sooner, she will just have to knit it herself!
I am unraveling the sparkle hat from the SnB book. I knitted the crown wrong. That's why it look too round at the top. DUH!
gotta go buh bye!

Well My grandfather was gracious enough to model the beanie I sent him. Too bad it doesn't fit. He did say, "It was a nice hat tho' but how about two more inches?" Oh well, back to the yarn store :(

My best friend the Mailman

My Lana Grossa yarn came in the mail November 28th. It took a long time to get to me because it was sent from Germany. It's not what I expected but it's beautiful anyway. I will probably buy from them again in the future. They sent the Basic pattern book also. It's in German. I need to find a translator. My pattern was sent with a translation. It's still hard to understand. I will have to concentrate. Here is what I got Lana Grossa Model .
Here is where I got it Ebay
Here is the website.
I can't upload pictures because my internet is down. I will have new project pics and soon as I am able.
