Yeah, it's over !!!!!!! lol

My birthday is officially over. *bleh* Ok so it wasn't horrible. The neck roll that my new physical therapist gave me helped me sleep pretty darn good last night. Went to my folk's house for dinner. Mom made grilled pork chops and fried potatoes. One of my favorite meals. She bought a small cake too. I had a lil piece but she sent the rest home with me. Not a good thing when you are tryin to loose weight. LOL She bought me a couple lil bunny figureines as a present from my boy. He got a kick out of giving it to me. :O)

I finally made it to the new Borders that replaced the Walden Books in the mall. They have a good assortment of knitting magazines there. No that wasn't the first thing I went and looked at. LOL First I checked out the kids section. My son is just learning how to read. Then I went and checked out the knitting mags. I picked up a copy of the spring Knitter's. There are some patterns in there that I might actually be able to make without altering. hehe There are a couple that I like that I'll have to make bigger though. Some are a tad bit weird looking like Chipotle Waves. I do think with a lil tweaking that it could look ok though. I would do the sleeves in solid knit though. The main waves I would just do in shades of green and not the wacko ones.

Jon, the reason that I don't have any wool is cause the nearest store that sells wool is about 1 1/2 hours from my place. The only craft stores in town are Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Closest thing to wool I can get my hands on is Wool-Ease. I'm not real fond of the stuff. The yarn sections keep getting smaller too. I know there have to be people around here that knit and crochet but I dunno where the heck they are. If I do find a few, Borders has a cafe in the store. I

OK then missy. We need to get you some wool. What colors do you want? What do you want to make? The sky's sort of the limit so give us your dream project and we'll see what we can do. Who knows? Maybe Miss Sadie will send you some of her slob too.

I just got ten balls of Peruvian Highland Wool in Burnt Orange off ebay for $15 with free shipping. That's even less than elan's price, I think, of $2.25/ball.

I LOVE ebay.
