No? Well get to it!! I want to see ya’ll!</p> <p>Ohyeah and my butt’s warm again (thank God)…I seriously do not like Haddad’s, though and wish I wasn’t stuck in a three year contract with them. Bastards.</p> <p>Okay, knitting…I’ve been working on the Simple V-Neck from <a href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=10&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://www.glampyre.com/blog/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.glampyre.com/blog/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Glampyre</a> and have the body done</p> <div style="text-align: left;"><a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=11&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_ivegotahead.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_ivegotahead.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"></a><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/ivegotahead.jpg"><img width="83" hspace="5" height="110" border="0" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/ivegotahead.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></div> <p>and, in honor of <a href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=12&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://www.killerpeach.net" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.killerpeach.net’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Jody</a>, a ‘dancing’ shot</p> <p><a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=14&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"></a></p> <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=14&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"></a> <a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=14&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"></a> <div style="text-align: left;"><a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url=aHR0cDovL2plc3NhbHVrbml0cy5ibG9nc3Bpcml0LmNvbS9pbWFnZXMvbWVkaXVtX2RhbmNpbi4zLmpwZw==&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.3.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_dancin.3.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"></a><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/dancin.jpg"><img width="83" hspace="5" height="110" border="0" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/dancin.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></div> <p>please ignore the Tinkerbell PJ’s :o) oh, and the song I was dancing to? Young MC’s Bust a Move ;o) We just watched ‘<a href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=16&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://www.nbc.com/My_Name_Is_Earl/" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.nbc.com/My_Name_Is_Earl/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">My Name is Earl</a>’ and that was his ex’s first dance song at her 2nd wedding, hehe So, since I am a child of the 80’s, as soon as I heard the first three notes I had the song stuck in my head along with flashbacks to rollerskating to it and thinking I was the cat’s ass ;o) (I was, too, I had white skates with sparkly red wheels and matching laces and I had the MOVES!! Of course, if I attempted today what I did effortlessly then I would be in the ER faster than you can say roller derby)</p> <p>I also finished a hat I made for a friend’s birthday. First, I made it too small and learned that I have really bad camera aim:</p> <div style="text-align: left;"><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/beaniehat.jpg"><img width="110" hspace="5" height="83" border="0" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/beaniehat.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></div> <div style="text-align: left;">Then I ripped out the ribbing and knit it a few inches longer:</div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/jasonhat.jpg"><img width="110" hspace="5" height="83" border="0" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/jasonhat.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></div> <div style="text-align: left;">(many thanks to Brian for modeling)</div> <div style="text-align: left;">And, my favorite part:</div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"><a target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=19&amp;entry_id=18" title="http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_jasonhattop.3.jpg" onmouseover="window.status=’http://jessaluknits.blogspirit.com/images/medium_jasonhattop.3.jpg’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;"><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/jasonhattop.jpg"><img width="110" hspace="5" height="83" border="0" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/jasonhattop.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a></a></div> </div> <div style="text-align: left;">How awesome is that? I love the way the increases look!</div> <div style="text-align: left;"></div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"> <p>I think that about covers it…I’m having 15 ppl over for Thanksgiving this year and the panic is starting to set in…not sure if you’ll hear from me again this week. I’m hoping to have the v-neck done for Thanksgiving (along with cleaning the house, grocery shopping, stocking up the liquor cabinet, baking, forcing my daughter into slave labor and calling the doc to refill my valium prescription *ahem* not necessarily in that order) and I’m feeling pretty optimistic. Yeah, I think that’s the feeling I’ve got going on…or maybe it’s sheer panic…</p> </div> <div style="text-align: left;"></div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style=&quot
;text-align: left;"> <p>I can’t complain, everyone comes here every year because I am such a control freak that the idea of having Thanksgiving any way other than the way I grew up (i.e. Grandma’s – mom can’t cook and dad refuses to cook on Thanksgiving, guess who two of the ppl are that are going to be there Thursday?) just freaks me right the hell out. So it’s the usual traditional panic that’s setting in, nothing to worry about…nothing at all…</p> </div> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"> <div style="text-align: left;"></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>

Progress…?

    2016 stitch-along from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
