Wow…I just added a new project I am working on to my Ravelry and I see I now have 8 WIP’s(work in progress). That’s baaaaaddd……..I know I will finish the newest one soon. I can’t say what it is in case that person sees this post. And I have a blanket I am making that won’t be done for ever. But the other stuff-I should really get on that…… I have:
1. a dishcloth I started forever ago after completing one and needing something simple to keep working on
2. the blanket
3. the new project that I can’t talk about
4. Kitty Dim Sum cat toys-I made 2 but didn’t finish a third that I started
5. Socks for my dad that were supposed to be for x-mas that I told him he would get “some time”
6. My garter belt from Naughty Needles that matches the wrist warmers I made already-it’s slow going-the yarn is sooo thin
7. A baby bib I started before Christmas
8. A baby sweater I started when someone at work was having a baby(which is now almost a year old). It’s an awesome sweater though. I really should finish. I did it in burgundy with off white collar and cuffs and it will have swallows on either side of the collar in the off white too! Too cute!

Hmmm…..I think I will tackle the cotton stuff alternately-cotton always gives me a burn on my finger. Then maybe the socks. 🙂

I wonder if I can knit and bike at the same time…

What to say, what to say? I’m still very much enjoying my time off, but the money coming in is not enough to stave off the bill collectors, so things are getting a little stressed for me around here. Hopefully Chad and I will be back to work sooner rather than later and things can get back to normal-although my knitting time will be greatly sacrificed 😛
Last week I finished a very early b-day present for a friend which I unfortunately can’t post here yet because she MAY stumble across it on here. But I will say that it is wicked awesome and I hope she likes it.
I’m also working on a bag that I am making up as I go that, if it turns out, will be up on my etsy page.
And I think tonight, for knitting night, I am going to start a devil hat for my friend Sarah, who learned how to knit and purl last night when she was over.
Yesterday Sarah and I went out and each bought an exercise bike. I couldn’t really afford it, and Chad was very much against it since I had an elliptical for about 2 years and barely used it, but even thought my bike has left me broke, I am determined to have it and use it to death. My weight has been slowly making it’s way up again and I can’t let that happen. I have the time to work out, so I should be. And now we have cable again, so I get to watch tv AND workout at the same time. Then knit. Then workout 😛 ha ha ha ha ha ha
Sorry no pics this post, maybe next time 🙂
