It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. So here is the very brief overview….

Busy with work.  Finished my certificate in marketing research last week in Chicago.  Ate amazing bacon wrapped pork tenderloin while there.  Made the official decision to begin working on my book and have the outline ready to go. We won curling in a tight game Saturday.  Almost half finished with my scarf for the Special Olympics.  Reading “A Thousand Splendid Suns” after finishing “Rigged.”

I’m looking forward to the long weekend.  I definitely need to take some time to do some ‘me’ things as selfish as that may be.  I want to finish my book, finish my scarf, start some new knitting, help my mom start her new online store, and (this is an ambitious goal) clean my closet.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

The Amazing Cupcake Hat

The Amazing Cupcake Hat

I’ve been knitting for a couple years now.  My stitches have improved but, this year, I am determined to learn how to knit in the round so I can recreate this hat that I saw.

If anyone can help me, I’d welcome it at this point.  I might have to go join the club at the Salt Lake library for someone to help me.  That is if I don’t have the patience to wait for S to get home for Christmas….Only 34 more days.

Knitting for the Special Olympics October 2, 2008

A friend of mine passed this along to me.  It’s a project to knit scarves for the February 2009 Special Olympics athletes in Idaho.  (http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Features/Special+Olympics.ht)

If you knit or crochet, I thought it was a nice thing to do.  I’m planning on making a scarf or two.  The only rules are that you use the colors they have selected but otherwise you can use any pattern you would like.

It’s finally starting to get cold enough that I feel like knitting again.
