Finished Projects & New Camera

Here it is Saturday night and I'm already in bed with my laptop and camera. I've had a dull headache all day and just decided to give up for the night. The house is clean enough for now and most of the laundry is washed, folded and put away. Hubby & daughter are at work, so its just me and the pups. Time to relax.

I got a new camera today. My mom and dad helped me buy it as an early B-day present (awsome gift). These are the first pictures I have taken. Hopefully after some practice I will get better.

Just a couple of the projects I have finished recently. The black and green bag is for my niece Kassy and the pink & black bag is for my niece Dakota. Hope they like them....

I got yarn!

It's Saturday evening and I got yarn. I got enough to make 2 pair of socks, just in case I get done with my first pair and have to start another pair right away. I also got 2 books on making socks. One that tells me how to measure for socks and another that has the instructions for making socks on circular needles. I just need to get some needles. I am not sure what ones I need 16" or 24" length or size #2 or #3. I also did not realize how much $ we spend for our hobbies. I always feel guilty when I get home and add it up, but the finished project is so rewarding.

Well, I should get going. Licorice my dog is standing with her front feet on one side of the laptop and her back feet on the other. She thinks it is time to play with her. It is a bit difficult to type when she is trying to distract me. I am having trouble seeing through her and she is just too cute to ignore any more. I will go and get her one of her treats (scooby snack as she calls them).
See ya later...

To Do

I read my horoscope today and It says it is time to start a project. You know one of those that I have been thinking about for a while. I'm sure it's not cleaning the garage, so it must be knitting socks. I will just swing by "All About Yarn" and get some sock yarn and maybe a new set of needles while I'm on my way to the grocery store.
I'm sure that Licorice would love to go for a ride. She is my best pal. she follows me everywhere and sleeps on my lap while I knit.
Well better get going so I can get back and make some food for hubby to take to work tonight. Those 12 hour shifts are long and requires a bit of extra food to get him through. Maybe I can figure out how to get a picture on here. If not I will have daughter #2 help.

Getting started

Well, I've finally gone and done it! I'm blogging! I'm blogging! I've been planning on starting a blog for quite a while. I love to write and have decided to start one about my hobbies and life. I do not have pictures at this time. I will. Hopefully sooner than later.
I started knitting about 15 years ago. With some help from a friends mother, I started a sweater and never finished. I finally gave it away to someone that would finish it. Then... About a year ago, my daughter Alex, saw a felted bag she just had to have, but she did not like the colors. I bought the pattern, looked up a few things on the web and was off with needles in hand. I finished that bag and made another one for my other daughter Andi. It's grew from there. Their friends wanted one and then my nieces all had to have one (4 of them). Several bags later I am still knitting and would like to try my hand at knitting socks.
I have recently been reading some of the web rings about knitting and decided to start my own blog. So here it is. I'm blogging!
