New Stuff

I guess it's been MUCH longer than I thought, which means I didn't take pictures of one of my other FO's. It's just another pair of wrist warmers, but it's something at least. I have at least one more pair "ordered" as requested by my youngest, (not to be left out) and one of my daughter's classmates has demanded a pair just like hers. Not sure she'll be getting those with that little attitude - lol

The socks are finished =) Yaaay!

We almost had an ice storm, it rained and froze for a few hours and then as it got dark it suddenly warmed up and it all melted. Which is a good thing of course, because you can't say ICE out loud around here without someone running off the road.

The moon has been really spectacular the last few nights, and last night I finally got a decent picture of it. If I hadn't been freezing I could have done better, but there'll be other moon pictures to come.

We just finished another Mod at school, so we start with a new teacher tomorrow. I did good on my finals, thankfully. I'm halfway done with school now, which seems very odd, but cool, too. Next Mod will be my last in Pathology and Kinesiology - which will be nice - but we start in Clinical, which is also pretty difficult. I'll be bracing myself for that eventuality.

Next time I should have at least one more FO and the low down on my new instructor. I'm sure this one won't upset my poor classmate like the last one. I thought I was going to have to restrain her for a minute yesterday. Poor guy, just can't keep his feet out of his mouth during a temper tantrum.

Talk to y'all later! =)

Silly Me!

Well, my new camera came with it's own cable, I just didn't take it out of the box. So my complaints were for naught. (except I still think it's stupid to have so many different shapes for USB plugs) That aside, I finally have pictures!

I discovered that the large drink cups from Chicken Express (that I like to get Dublin Dr. Pepper in) make really good hat drying apparatus things. (apparati?)

I made these for one of my class mates, she knows about them, but the hat that is done in the same yarn is a surprise, you can see it barely peeking out from between the other two hats above. It's my own pattern and once I figure out how to make the chart make sense, I'll either submit it to someone or publish it here for free. It's kinda a little different.

Here are the socks I've been working on for DS the 9 year old. I've gotten past the heel flap and gussets now, though, this picture was taken the day of my last post.... so there's been progress. The other stuff is in there just to show how great the colors show up *sigh* finally a camera I can take pictures of yarn with that shows the colors true.

That's the main reason I put all those hats in the same picture, they are all cool shades of blue and purple and they don't fight or mess with the colors of the others. (that was a problem I had with the other cameras)

Oh, and of course I had to share the latest greatest sunsent with y'all. One regular one zoomed.
