Here It Comes Again

Hey Guys,

Quick update on my life as a few of you have asked. I've not been on or chatty lately as the house closes next Tuesday and I am frantically trying to get the remainder of the packing done. All the boxes are closing in around me and the disorganization is driving me crazy! All will be back to normal, ????, in a couple of weeks.

I have been knitting though. Working on a scarf for Jeff' mom in Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon (won't do that again), still working on the mindless 2x2 rib scarf for his dad and there is still the Debbie Bliss Sweater that will have its first birthday April 13. That was the day of conception.

Now, Justin, a great guy in my knitting group here in Dallas has suggested, and don't freak out, another knit-along this year. We haven't solidified a project yet so if you guys have any ideas we are open to them. To tell you a guy who sat here last Monday night knitting stocking net with a couple of beer bottles might just come up with a doozie on his own so suggest, suggest!!!

Hope all is going well with all of you around the world and I promise I shall be more social when all the dust settles.

Love y'all,

what can I say - I forgot my size 50 needles, and the longnecks were the next best thing.

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

How about a knit-along using

How about a knit-along using Mario's Fabonacci Eyelet Triangle pattern?

Or a knit-along using the Lotus Blossom Shawl pattern that Jason (midpath) knitted?

Can you tell I'm into lace and shawls right now?

Knitting with beer

Knitting with beer bottles??? I certainly hope they were empty beer bottles. It would be a double offense of yarn abuse and alcohol abuse, and we wan't have that.

I am all for another Knit-Along project. The felted slippers being a great success and having knit 3 more pairs after that first pair.

Hope everything goes well

Hope everything goes well with the closing and the move.

I've gotta ask - what brand beer bottles was he knitting with?

MMario - I don't live in the 21st Century - but I sometimes play a character who does.
