I'm back. Well, sort of...

Gosh that trip took a lot out of me! There is no reason a newly pregnant (that's right, I said pregnant :o))person should try to drive that far with two children. That said, I will have to do it again in December! The wedding was really nice and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Not much to report. I'm exhausted, and am playing catch up with school. Things are really difficult right now with the hubby gone. I haven't even touched any knitting since I got back. Funny how when you are stressed the most is when it is hardest to find time to knit...and that's when you need it the most.

I PROMISE I will update this (well actually next because this is the last day of this week) week...complete with pictures! I have my finished booga and my wonderful secret pal sent be the best package full of goodies. I hate that I haven't really been able to dig in and enjoy it yet! Oh, and pics from the wedding of course :o)

Just wanted to let everyone know I (barely) survived my trip.

Long Lost Mail

What's this?!?

Could it be the first issue of my FCEK that I ordered many moons ago? I tell ya, I never got a confirmation, or an email saying there was a delay, or nothing! I had given up...figured it was never coming. Hmpf!!
I also got my order from Jimmy Bean's wool yesterday...yay! I'm pretty happy with the service and they sent candy with my yarn. Impressive, huh? I ordered one more skein of noro to finish this...

...and three more in a different color for another one. I am determined to finish bag #1 TODAY! I've been so busy this past week that my knitting has suffered. Unfortunately there is no relief in sight until maybe December...*sigh* Between school work and the kids I don't have a whole lot of 'me' time. I didn't even make it to my knit night last Wednesday (but I'll be there tomorrow!!). I can't wait until the hubby gets back!
I've also started the ruffles scarf from Scarf Style I changed it a bit, I'm using LB chenille and it's working out quite nicely. The guage is a little bit bigger but's a scarf :o)

I'm not sure if I'm going to give it as a gift or not yet. My sister expressed her longing for a scarf to go with her winter coat, so I might put this one on hold to do one for her in a different color. Oh, and I still have to cast on for the Misty Garden.
Y'all might not hear from me again 'til Sunday or Monday. I am taking the kids to GA for a wedding. Please wish me luck in preserving my sanity while in the car for hours with 2 little boys! Take care until next time :o)

Coming back to life!

That's how I feel! Yay! Things have been busy. I finally got my car back today and had to get a dress fitted for a wedding next week. Not to mention school has been kicking my butt! Amazingly enough I have been able to sneak a little knitting in here and there. I should have some updates (with pictures) either tomorrow or Saturday :o)

Thanks to all who thought about me in my time of diziness and dispair!
