A Good Day

It was a good day. Went to my cousin's new place(her and her husband just seperated and it's tough on her) to see her and my sister who was in town for 2 days from Georgia, then all my other cousins and my aunt and uncle showed up - so we had 10 or 11 adults and 7 kids in a small 2 bedroom apartment. Everyone got along and had a good time. Taught my 4 year old neice to knit, she is getting better at holding the needles. Mom had been to their house after christmas and taught the older niece to knit and told the younger she was too young. I think 4 is old enough! So we taught her yesterday, she was sooo thrilled. She sat and worked and tried long after I thought she would be bored. Now the funny part in my sister doesn't know how to knit, so she'll end up learning to help the lit bit. Not much happening other then that, lots of food, lots of people, lots of kids and niose. I don't think we have all been in the same room since - well maybe a funeral a couple years ago. Dang been awhile! I did start the second in a pair of fingerless mitts, and got hand sizes of a bunch of people since I seem to be on a glove kick.
Heading to the scrapbook store later - even though I don't scrapbook, the other females in the family do.

Will Try To Be Better

So I'm going to try to post more often! Seems like the move, getting settled in and everything at work as really knocked me out of my groove.Not to mention the upper respiratory infection that still hasn't completely gone away. The only good news is I have been knitting! I'll try to get pictures up later. I've done a couple pairs of fingerless gloves and right now am half way through a set of fingerless mitts of my own design. I was going to put cables on them and got so caught up in the pattern I forgot!!! I also have done a bunch of hats and a few other projects for other people. I'm starting today a sweater from the new interweave knits(which I have to say other then the pictures in the front and pattern in the back I really like!So much easier to find things and the ads are beautiful!) I realized I'm using alot of !!! but I'm So wound up this morning! I really want to go to New York to see the Yarn Harlot but don't think I can afford the trip. Plane is only $149 to fly but the hotel, and then all the yarn stores I would have no choice but to visit - so much money just there!
Well family is in town today so off to shower and get ready for that!
