weekend update

blahhhhhhhhhh heh

Actually my weekend wasn't too bad. Just wish I had spent a little more of it at home. Saturday there was a birthday party for my great aunt. She turned 75 this past week. My brother and I don't go to too many family functions, so my mom made it a point that we had to attend. It actually wasn't too bad. I saw a bunch of relatives that I haven't seen in quite awhile. I hadn't seen my uncle since last summer. Just ignore the fact that it takes about ohhhh 20 minutes to get to his house from my on a dang highway. Has always been like that though. My mom embarrassed my brother to no end by telling everyone that we are waiting for him to propose to his gf of 5 years. LOL He has the ring and his gf knows it. He just hasn't found the right moment to give it to her. He was going to last weekend but she was in a car accident. Some twit ran a stop sign and totaled her car.

I kept my poor son out too late Saturday night. I don't have cable and I really wanted to watch the Nextel race. Was fun watching a couple of the drivers get all pissed off at each other. LOL I know most people don't think it is a sport, but it is more difficult than it looks. You try making only left hand turns for 500 or so miles all the while dodging other drivers while going 150 miles and hour or faster. hehe

I did do some sock knitting this weekend. I also did a bit of work on my sweater. I've got about an inch to go before dividing for the sleeves. I've also been messing with a bunch of other little stuff that will probably be ripped out in the end. It doesn't bother me to rip stuff out over and over. Especially when I find it in a bad and have no clue what pattern I was using. That is if I was using one at all. LOL I swear I'm going to buckle down and finish a few projects.

Thanks for the offer of wool Jon. I've got some Cascade 220 coming in the mail though. I actually thought it would have been here yesterday. *sigh* I just want to make myself a felted knitting bag. I do have an old school bag I was using but lately it has been the trusty ole Wal-Mart bag. hehehe Plus I want to know what the big fuss is about felting anyway. I also just ordered a bunch of Caron Perfect Match to make myself some sleeveless tops. Yeah I know it is acrylic but with how messy I am it is for the best. LOL Plus I got enough yarn to make 2 tops and I got 2 circular needles I am needing for making socks for about $30. Perfect for my budget. :OP

Ok enough yabbering for tonight. I need to go load the dishwasher before I forget again.

I love my uncle. I wish I lived 20 minutes away from him. Instead, I live 1600 miles away. And I'm the favorite nephew. I think it's because we are both the youngest children.

Can't wait to see your felted baggie!
