I Miss Knit Night

Another Tuesday night went by and I missed knit night with the girls. I really miss it! I haven't gone in so long. My kid is still here on her winter break. I just can't seem to drag my butt out of the house when she's here. It's not like she's five years old and needs a babysitter. She goes back this weekend. Then hopefully life will get back to normal. I miss knit night conversation, I miss all the pretty yarns and projects, and the conversation. Did I mention I miss the conversation?

I've been working on a hat. My first project on circulars done in a circle! So far so good. It has tons of cables on the part I'm working on, the brim. I have one more cable section to do, then it's 2 x 2 ribbing until I get to the decreases. I swear it takes me about half an hour to one round of the cables, I'm so slow at it and paranoid I'll drop a stitch. I'm using Wool Ease. The color is called White Frost. It's got these little irridiscent threads running through it, makes it look kind of sparkly, like frost. And it's going to be for me. With all the Chrismas knitting I did, I'm finally making something for ME!

Otherwise, nothing new and exciting. The Holidays are over (thank god). Back to full time work, except not this week. I'm taking Friday off to help the kid get ready to go back to college on Saturday and it will be our last official day together for a while. Not sure when I'll see her again. Travel could be wicked between here and there for the next couple of months if we get snow.

So glad you and your daughter are having a great visit. We miss you too! But we totally understand that you want to spend as much time as possible with your daughter. Enjoy yourself, we'll still be there when you come back.

Happy New Years!

We missed you too!! I hadn't been in forever. Too damn snotty and hacky. Bleah.

What pattern are you using for the hat?

Hat is looking good. Hopefully you can catch knit night next time!

Tag, you're it!! Come see the blog for details.

I miss it too! I haven't been there in ages. I might just make it tonight but it's really up in the air -- my step-dad's car broke down so we're down to one car for the whole family, which means I can really only go out if no one else needs to... :( So I'm not sure about tonight, but hopefully I'll see you soon! I really miss everyone!
