Mood - I feel like a broken record. Still much to do and so little time. Lots of stress. But I get a stress reliever tomorrow….. Chase.

WIP and FO’s - Baby sweater is coming along (see picture). I finished the last sleeve last night after frogging 2 times. Now I just have 30 rows of the body and I’m finished. Hooray. I’m not knitting anymore baby sweater with someone in mind… I will knit and who ever has thier baby… that’s who gets it. My baby gift's will be hat’s or /and booties. I finished the “Umbilical Baby Hat” for my new grandnephew who lives in Japan and mailed today. (see picture) It’s way to big …. Oh well. The Lily Chin sweater is only one set of the pattern down… I better get busy.. next class is Monday. I really don’t plan on keeping up just going and observing. The Brown Sheep cotton is a pain… it keeps splitting. I’m wondering if I should change needles … to my “Denise” needles. The fingerless gloves … well I had to tniK back. :-(.

What I’m Doing - Last week was game night on Friday night. That did cheer me up for awhile – but back to the grind. We played a game called “Hand and Foot”. The biggest score for my team ever. Over 9000 points. Last round we could not get a 2nd red book…. And the other team did not want to go out because we were to far ahead. So…………….. we ended up with 8 black books and 1 red book and almost closed the last. We must have had at least 12 wild cards if you can imagine. It was fun. Tonight “FridayNightKnit@thegrounds. I will pick up Miss Pauline. She is still having circulation problems with her leg and is in allot of pain. Tomorrow I’m taking a sock class through our local guild. It's really a workshop. I know the basic’s of knitting socks, but I can always learn more techniques and get more ideas and this supports our guild! I want to learn 2 Socks at the same time! Any method.

What’s On my I-Pod and What Audio Books I’m Listen To - “Plum Lucky” a Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich, is still on my I-Pod and I’ve listened to part. Cute. I’m listening to “The Appeal” by John Grisham on my CD player. Read by Michael Beck. He’s one of my favorite readers. I’m having fun listening to the “Sticks and String” pod-cast. I download all of them (54) and I’m on #30.
