Some progress made on ripple blanket

This blanket has been so much fun to work on each evening. But I think my progress has been slow. I don't care though, as long as I get done by fall so that I can snuggle under it when the weather turns cold. I am not to sure about that black in there though, but it is there for good now. Besides, it is just a blanket right, nothing tofreak out on. I ordered the yarn from Knit Picks, in the cotton shine worsted. They had 16 colors and I got 2 of each color. It is only 75 yards a skein and at 2.49 a skein, I felt that was a good deal. This is only going to get me to the blanket being 48inches long and I want it to be in 60 inch range. So I will have to order more. The cotton is really soft, not stiff at all.

Now, some pictures of what we did last weekend. This is Valerie, our youngest with her boyfriend Jeremy. It was his first time tubing!! He did great. I am sure that we will make him a professional tuber by the end of summer.

For now keep on knitting..

Freaky Friday

Nah, not really. Just here at work and decided to check out some blogs. I am still plugging away on the fun fun fun ripple blanket. I think I will have to order some more yarn though in order to make it long enough. It is just fun to keep chaning colors on it. Not sure if all the colors are really working together though. But I am the type of knitter that does not FREAK out when I make a little mistake. I am just letting the blanket become what it wants to become. I think it will all work out though. It is just a blanket you know.

Well, that is it, for now keep on knitting!

Project to help out Greensburg Kansas

I just read about this project that this blogger has going for Greensburg Kansas, the town that was literally blown off the map about a month ago in Kansas by a tornado.
I just want to spread the word, take a look and send squares if you want to help.

Okay, here is the link, go check it out, now.

I have sent the word to all the knitters and crocheters that I know here in my office and we are all jazzed about helping out as well. Who doesn't have bits and pieces of yarn and a little bit of time to make a square?

For now keep on knitting!

You are a White Wine Woman

You Are a White Wine Woman
Breezy and casual, you know how to have fun when you're drinking.And even though you can kick back with a few drinks, you never let things get out of hand.Alcohol is not a social lubricant for you... it just enhances your already sparkling personality.You prefer to date a man who is optimistic, friendly, and funny.
What Kind of Drinking Woman Are You?
