Hectic Week

Boy, what a week. Too much long distance running around for me this week. It really makes the knitting adventures few and far between. I seem to be in high demand. I went for my little visit to see my college daughter and bring her a few things that she needed. Tonight went for that every other week visit with the husband because he is a long haul truck driver the visits are only every other week. You know I bring him groceries and take laundry. The deal is lots better than it was before when we only saw each other every few months.
Well enough of that, I almost have my swap bag completed and hope that Mary-Catherine likes it alot. Done with most of my shopping too. So this is really pretty good for me, I fell almost like I'm ahead of the game. I still am scoping out more additions to include in the package though.
We have this shop that is close to me that I really want to go and visit. It's called the Yarn Garden and I hear that it's fabulous. I think the next time that I'm in demand and have to drive practically past it I'm going to stop and check it out for myself.

Time for Knitting

The me time has started and it is wonderful. School has started for the entire household, the mornings have become a quiet interlude with the knitting needles and the morning coffee. I might add that this time also includes the phone but there is this invention called speaker phone that works so well for knitting time that it is incredible. Of course once I go blue tooth that will be a whole other ball game. Now I am starting a KAL for a stole I am very excited as I have wanted to work on one and this is a mystery of sorts, which means it will be all the more exciting. This is once again something that my college daughter has introduced me to. She is trying to drag me into this century with the computer and all, with me kicking up a little fuss but not much. Only because I am not that computer savvy and sometimes that makes some things difficult. I am slowly learning howto get around though. Learning all the new skills takes some time though.
