All packed!

So.. I packed up everything I needed for my trip ... :) thx to friend Kimmy who gave me this lil project bag.. I Love IT!!!!.... and I left last Thursday.... boarded the bus.. and started knitting my monkeys... and then had to stop about 3 hours ... I just couldn't knit.. was like trying to do so on a rollercoaster.. I was upset.. and frustrated.. plus... dark.. of all things... the lighting was terrible.. I've got pretty good peepers.. but alas, I was unable to really see what I was doing.. oh well... So.. I made it this far,

gave up knitting on the bus.. and read The 6th Target from James Patterson.. .Number 6 in Women's Murder Club series.... It was OK... but just that.. I was somewhat disappointed b/c I usually love all his books.. I was even somewhat entertained with the Bird kids one... in The Lake House...... Oh well.. have a good week all!

Summertime Blues

Sadly, I have not been able to pick up my knitting in over 2 weeks... Work has been crazy busy, that I've been spending every waking moment logged on and building unix systems.. or at the local parks watching either a softball or soccer game. I finally finished with 'my side of things' on the job front and the sports are starting to wind down...(well, we have the championships this Friday- keep your fingers crossed!!!) Go ROCKETS!!! ... so I can now take a deep breath and relax somewhat and squeeze in some knitting while there as well...

In a few weeks, I'll be climbing aboard a bus w/ 2 other friends.. for about 12 hours (each way) to Dresden, OH... The Longaberger Capital :)... I already have my projects packed for each way... How crazy is it to be looking forward to it.. ??? 12 hours... but I get 12 hours of knitting time!... alone...! turning the cellphone off...! I'm planning on knitting the monkey sock in Cherries! - that I received from friend Kim.. as a birthday gift.. I love this yarn.... The colors are gorgeous.!
