Ahhh Choo!

My, at all the dust in here. Hmmm....I guess that is what happens when you don't post anything in almost a year. *blush* Now where to start. Not much has changed. I am still knitting away, trying to stay out of the Arizona sun, homeschooling and I can now add being a Girl Scout leader to the list. :) I am really excited about my troop of girls. They are AWESOME! I signed up to knit five items for the Dulaan Project and I asked my girls to help make some double fleece blankets. Boy did they ever! They made a total of 9 blankets! With the 3 that I made and the 7 knitted items, I was proudly able to let Ryan know that we had not 5 but rather 19 items to donate. :) I know that is nothing compared to how many other people did but I am very proud of how well it all turned out. I currently have way to many projects on the needles. Such as the Tulip Baby Cardigan, which I was rocking along just fine and dandy with when I realized something......I had gotten to cocky....I didn't check my gauge and I got bit.....hard. This precious baby sweater, that I had just stared adding the trim to

would have to take a trip to the frog pond. :( All the way back. I, who typically knits to gauge with out any trouble, had to take it all out. *sigh* I admit it, I deserved it but my intentions were good! I got all excited because I got the kit just before the baby it is intended for arrived and so I cast on. I have learned my lesson....for now. :P

Other things that I have on the needles are a wrap out of some beautiful hand dyed yarn that I picked up in Sedona when DH and I got away for the weekend for out 13th wedding anniversary. A that I am not sure if it will be a throw or a shawl....out of some yarn that I got for Christmas. What it turns out to be will depend on how far the yarn goes. The next project is my April kit for the Socks that Rock club...Knee high to a Grasshopper socks. I knitting them as the knee highs so it will probably be a while yet. And then there is the bathmat and ball-band dishcloth from MDK. And soon to be added to it all, silly me signed up for the MS3. Oh the shame of it all....I am so weak here lately and will have to get myself in gear to get all of this done anytime soon...okay, this year. I promise that I will get busy on pictures of all the UFO's very soon. For now, I just wanted to get back to blogging after intending to for way, way to long!'s good to be back. :D
