I finished the birthday scarf and just need to add the edging on the ballet shrug. I feel so good! It was like only 3 more inches ... and then bam! time to cast off! Pics to come, I have to figure how to put them on my flickr account.

knitting madness

Why is it so hard to finish a knitting project? I have a scarf, three shrugs, a Clapotis and a first sock of a pair. All I want to do is start a new project! Everyone seems to be making beautiful socks and I want to make them too. ( temper tantrum begins) ME WANT! ME WANT!

Ok all done. Got to get back to my WIP/ UFO's!

My Birthday

This weekend I had my birthday! The kids and DP took my out for dinner and it was enjoyable. (there were no dishes to wash!) There is nothing worse than to make your own birthday dinner and have to clean it up too.

Hope y'all had a nice weekend also!

I read about this on Moth Heaven and decided that this is what I need to get my knitting finished!

The Mission Possible challenge is to take 12 knitting things over the next 12 months, and finish them. It can be yarn, ufos, untried skills, whatever. To each their own, but it's the list that is the point. So here's my personal Mission Possible pledge. 12 UFO's by the end of the year. Here they are in no particular order:

1. Birthday scarf
2. wavy ribbed scarf
3. shimmer shrug
4. ballet shrug

1. tater cotton cardi
2. psychedelic afgan squares
3. rippled baby blanket
4. pants on fire

To do for me:
1. Ophelia top
2. Very Necessary Sweater
3. Clapotis
4. Monkey socks

I saw this on yaiAnn and I thought this was a great idea. So guess what? It's my turn!

"It's the Pay It Forward Exchange, based on the concept of the movie "Pay it Forward" where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return... just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness continue to pass it along as well. Here's how it works: I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won't be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that's a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
