Ok, still mad at my Christmas sock so don’t even ask.  Now working on a wrist warmer pattern.  These haven’t been blocked yet, but here’s a little of what they look like. 

I’m superstitious about showing the whole thing before the pattern writing process is finished.  Will post better pics after they’ve been blocked and after the pattern is closer to finished.  Otherwise something might go wrong….maybe that’s what happened to the stupid Christmas sock?!  Bad mojo!!  Aww, maybe I shouldn’t even show the wrist warmer…..

Found a neat-looking blog I thought I’d try, “Friday Fill-Ins“.  Every Friday there is a list of a few items with blanks to fill in.  Apparently you copy and paste to your own blog and fill in the blanks for your readers. Kind of like some of those emails you get from friends.  If you want to play along, leave me a comment so I know to check your blog (and a link to your blog)….I’d love to see!!  Ok, here goes:

1. Right now, I’m feeling sleepy.
2. Right here at home is where I want to be.
3. How does one learn to enjoy cooking and/or cleaning?
4. A day-planner calendar keeps me on track.
5. Please don’t be mean to others.
6. God’s love fills me with joy.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to knitting, tomorrow my plans include lots of college football-watching and Sunday, I want to enjoy some cooler weather!

I hate how the Christmas socks turned out.  Don’t EVEN want to look at them long enough to snap a picture right now.  Don’t want anything to do with them.  Well, I say “them” but it’s only one.  And THAT one is LUCKY I haven’t thrown it into a fish tank full of piranha’s.

 Ah, the pattern writing process.  Fun most of the time but there are now 2 on the back burner because I can’t stand looking at them.  Good thing there lots of projects in progress at any given time.

My latest project is a pattern for some Christmas-themed socks.  Trying to get them turned out and the pattern polished very soon.  Here’s a sneak peek:

It’s not blocked yet, but here’s a little more:

The ones I’m making for the pattern illustrations are out of Louet Gems Sport (Opal), one 225 yd. skein in Cream and one in Cherry Red.  Yummy-soft.  And the red is perfect for a Santa/Christmas red!  More coming soon…..

Oh, in case you’re wondering, I got out my trusty digital camera to take these pics!

So I’m getting the hang of turning the the new camera right-side around but now I keep taking videos when I want to take pictures.  I love my camera phone and it’s supposed to take good pictures, I just need the company to make a companion “for dummies” booklet to the user’s guide.  I’m determined to not let that thing get the better of me.  Stay tuned for some AWESOME pictures….

Well, things are getting cleaned up, power is being restored, and things are returning to a semblance of normalcy post-Ike.  Thanks to readers for being patient and for checking back in. 

So…our cell phone contract FINALLY ran out with the crappy Right-Hand-Doesn’t-Know-What-the-Left-Hand-Is-Doing company.  Got a new cell phone in the switch and found out there is no such thing as a cell phone without a camera anymore.  Geez, just when I think I’m getting the hang of technology along comes something new.  The Kid laughs hysterically when I keep pointing the dang thing backwards and can’t find the %$^@# button. 

I was way excited to have a camera just like this one as a kid, it was high-tech then.  A “pocket” camera.  Still have that little beauty in a drawer somewhere.

Managed to get some ok pics of the latest knitting and a little crafting.  Some ornaments for Christmas from leftover sock yarn.  Knitted and filled and waiting for bows & hooks:

Have also been playing with polymer clay, here’s a first attempt at beads. I know the pic’s not good, just be glad for me that I found the %$^@# shutter button.  Will have to get out the other camera and take some better pics for the next post 🙂 

Need to make some stitch markers out of the footballs for knitting while watching football!!
