Ending Starts

I've been knitting a lot as of late, but not really getting any where important. Many months, and I mean Months I started and finished the Zipper Cardigan from Blue Sky Alpaca.....
Then we moved, and so I packed up the sleeves and fronts and back. I started feeling the tell tale heart, or sweater in my closet. Tick tick tick of my needles in my sleep and when I looked longingly at other patterns. I gave in and pulled it out. I had not problem with the seeming which means my scientific knitting worked great, I'll explain latter. I know feel a bit better about a new project.

I've finished the "mint chip" felt purse, felted it and knitted the inside pocket but not felted that yet.
Mint Chip
Its just waiting on the floor, just right there were that picture was taken. I've also been working on the socks, but since they just get toted around in my purse they don't always get so much work, but they get to see all the sites. Mainly the inside of a lab desk.

Crazy news story of the week and great new graphic, I wana be the person who made this thing.....

If you wana know I'll answer any and all questions it falls under parasitology.

A little bit of everything

Here are some pictures of this weekend so far....
Ross went to look at this car, its all painted and ready to have the last pieces put on, like windshields and weather striping. He says that it looks great. I'm really excited that its going to be done.

Here's a look at what we had for dinner, strangely this weekend was both Ramadan and Yom Kippur, we basically we offended the worlds two other major religions in one tasty piggy-rib bite. Ross handled the rubs, one sweet-ish one spicy. We had some curly fries with them, because they were clogging up the freezer and they needed to be eaten. Plus chips, salsa and TWO pies. Key Lime and oreo. Watch out when army guys go to the grocery store after eating nothing but MRE's for a week. But every last crumb of pie was eaten, all but like three ribs and ever fry was consumed like locus descending on the crops.

Today, sunday, we were going to work on the front yard a touch but have forgone this for a better sunday treat..... FOOTBALL. Ok so Hub is watching football, I'm chilling and cleaning a bit and will be over for football in the evening. I was also going to make meatloaf for dinner, but since we've basically stuffed our colons full over the passed few nights I think that a nice pasta meal will be more welcomed. Not sure what yet. I've got to get some things at Target today so I'll do that too.

Mint Chip purse

I have finished something in the knitting world, my Mint Chip felted purse (pattern to follow). Ok so I know its just a lump in this picture, but honestly its felted and just waiting patiently on my office (a total mess) floor to be finished completely. I plan on some pockets and a nice brown, chocolate like button for the flap. More pictures latter

Ahhh Sundays

Sundays are for getting up late, non-church goer here, and laundry. Today I am sans-hubby because he's over at Andrews watching more football than any one person should be able to watch in any given weekend but thats what NFL sunday pass is all about. I've got laundry, hair dying and some good old fashioned bathroom scrubbing to do!! Lucky for me we have TWO bathrooms now and the guests, oh guests my ass, the guys and neighbor who come over every saturday night are rather clean and that bathroom doesn't need much attention. Hubby's field uniforms aren't bad either so I'm down to like 2 loads today. If I play me cards right I can be done with all the house madness by 3 to watch the Sea-chickens play Tampa Bay, sure.
Enjoy these tasty burgers from last night.....mmmmm


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

We're Back up and Running

Do to the fact that vox has sorta dropped off the face of the planet, at least all my friends who seem to have other cooler sites I'm back to my old stand by of Blogger. I like it, no adds, no Pepsi created templates and if I knew more about what I was doing I could add other neat things to my blog. So send help. K, I've got a big day and I've got to get a move on, I'll send pictures.
