Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

It's been almost a YEAR!

Well, my blogversary is just around the corner. October 29th will mark 1 year of the blog. Seems to have gone by way faster than I expected it too. Huh, well, in honor of this date, I am having a contest! What I would like is for all you WAY MORE TALENTED people out there to come up with a button for my site (sad 1 year and no cutesy button for moi!). Winner will be drawn randomly from all entries and I will ask for your permission to blazonly plaster your button all over!!! tee hee (really, if I had any clue on how to do that I would but, I am so NOT computer design saavy at all!).

Winner will have some yarn and goodies sent for their efforts and good wishes. Gotta go look and see what goodies I have. hummmmmmm,

On the knitting front, I have the body of Kara and 1 & 1/2 sleeves done! I need to pull out the camera and show the progress. Maybe tonight while DS is at PSR. I am also now working on a HiP scarf which I am PRAYING will be ready for the premiere of GOF! UGH! I wanted to do a sweater but these past few months have been CRAZY!!! Again, I will try to post pix.

I also need to post pix of my socks for Lolly's Socktoberfest. I REALLY need to get that camera out!

Lastly, on the Red Cross volunteering front, I have had 4 of the 5 recommended/required vaccinations and I getting the last one today. I also am completing the last session of training on Wednesday, October 19th. All my papers will be complete and handed in at that session and then. . . . . . . . I wait. Our hospital is sponsoring 40 employees to go with full salary and benefits paid by the hospital but there can only be 4 of us gone at a time. Well, there are 4 down there already and I don't know where I will end up on the waiting list. I'll keep everyone posted. In the meantime, I have to go and get my 'stuff' (sleeping bag, bug spray, antibacterial hand gel, etc., etc.). I have to figure out what knitting to take with me as well. My husband thought I was NUTS when I said that but I am actually even thinking of taking some extra needles, yarn and basic knitting instructions. If I am in a shelter and I can give someone in need the gift of knitting, hey, I am all OVER it! I am thinking that my best bet (for myself) is going to be socks, portable and take up very little room (I have to carry my gear y'know). I'll have to see what socks to take with.

"see" ya all later!
