It's Sunday....

And I was going to get so much done this weekend. Instead, we've all been sneezing & sniffling and lazing about. I did get my first baby washcloth finished for the Knitting Olympics. You can see my progress on that, along with my teammates, on our team blog.

I did take a break from knitting (and cursing the knitting) to make a set of stitch markers. A fellow Sybermom requested a set to give as a gift. I love these little red hearts.

We're off to church this morning. Wasn't going to go, but today is the day of the Secret Pal reveal and we can't not go - we're a secret pal to another kid and our kid has a Secret Pal who has been really sweet to him, so off we go. I am going to slide on the pot luck, though. Just call me a lazy freeloader...

What on earth was I thinking?

Oh, wait. Thinking. Right. That should have come into play somewhere along the way. I plead the Nyquil defense.

So, I'm playing in The 2006 Knitting Olympics, yeah. Still working on that. My fellow teammates will be like the Austrians in the Alpine event & I'm that guy from Bermuda, just doing my best...

Which is not, apparently, purling. I have yet to figure out why those stitches are so loose. I'm sure it's some time-honored newbie knitter thing, but it's pissing me off. I wonder if there is an Olympic knitting record for longest time evah spent knitting a pink cotton dishcloth?

There are hearts appearing. It only took 2 hours for 11-ish rows (because I haven't learned yet how I'm supposed to count those rows I pull out and painstakingly put back on the needle...)

You know you're in trouble when

You take your 4 y/o to the craft store.

Make that stores.

I now have a pair of circs that are most definitely not a size 10, despite all the letters all over the packaging that attest that they are. And, had I been in my right mind at the time, I might have noticed that they were about 6 sizes too big.


Oh, look. Another blog.

Yeah, so I'm jumping on the blog bandwagon thingie.

What is the world coming to? The apocalypse must be near, seeing as how I have taken up knitting.

I know, I know. You can pick yourself up off the floor now...And you can admire my first finished piece. Oh, yeah. You can admire the kid, too....
