Urg, I say!

As I had stated before, I had so many ideas going thru my head that I couldn't focus on one project and see it through. So... I pulled myself together and started on a beanie, because that is what I had initially wanted to make.

I started it on Saturday evening and was flying thru it and then I just started making stupid mistakes cause I wasn't paying attention to the pattern. I tore it apart and started over... I ended up doing this 3 times, just because I wasn't paying attention...

Then I finally get it right and everything and I get to the point here I start to decrease at the top and it just doesn't work. The decreases are not lining up and it's just didn't work...

It should have only taken me 2 evenings to finish this beanie. It's just a simple, nothing but knitting, beanie. Needless to say that frustration is setting in and I tore it up and put it aside for a while. I don't know what went wrong this last time because the whole thing was great till the decreases and I fallowed the pattern to the T.

So... I am moving on from that beanie to another on that I found on knitty.com. It's a very simply beanie and I hope I can make this one work.

Wish me luck.

Tampa bound....

okay - the airport is in Tampa - I'm staying in clearwater and my Dad's b-day party is in North Redington beach - but that's probably more information then anyone wants to know.

So I most likely won't be around MWK until monday or tuesday.

WE GOT THE HOUSE!

Or to be truthful we got a 30 year mortgage. (Chris, knock it off with the buyers remorse thing)

Yep, "Whatever Deity" willing and the creek don't rise, Jeff and I should be moving in about this time next month. Trust me, I need that month to pack and throw the last 7 years up and away, but we are both excited as heck about it all and Jeffy has the place completely remodeled already; blueprints included! He had better get used to looking at those for quite awhile.

The only drawback is that I have to deal with that black hole of a spare bedroom of mine and worse yet face all my deepest fears again....... all my UFO's!

Best to y'all,

Chris
