We went and saw the movie RENT last night. We all enjoyed it. I prefered the play, the movie did add on things that weren't in the play.
I think I want to go see the play again.
Finished my Norweigen mittens. They look great. I will wash them today and take a picture.
Now to decide what to knit next. I'll pull out some of my half finished projects and see what strikes my fancy.
It has been over 2 monthes since I bought yarn. Unbelievable.

I'm making the Norwegian Mittens from Elizabeth Zimmerman.
I am using Knitpicks Elegance. They are very soft. I've ripped them out twice already. The second time I was up to row 31. The thumb part just didn't look right. I keep thinking I was suppose to be doing something else. Like put the thumb in a different spot. So I've ripped them out and I will start all over again. If I ever get them finished, they will be beautiful.

Comments are now moderated

I hated to do this, but I must.
I don't get many comments as it is, but it was anoying to have comments that were spam.
Sorry if this stops people from commenting. Most of you know how to get ahold of me, so you can leave comments else where.


I think I finally figured out 2 socks on 2 circs. Boy was it rough going for awhile. I actually thought I found a knitting technique I couldn't do. It had me so frustrated. It isn't second nature that is for sure, but at least I am doing it.
I won some Opal yarn. I can't wait for it to arrive. LOL
