Not Dead Just A Procrastinator

Updates


Ravelry
~ I was invited and my ID is ReaderKnitter
~ I don't use Ravelry as well as it is intended to be used, but I'm working on it

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
~ I got to go to the Barnes and Noble party and get my book (I was home by 1:30 am and finished the book before 7:00 am)
~ I met JP ( a ball of yarn and a remote control ) and he is so very nice. (He was there with his parents.)

Potty Training
~ We are about 95% totally trained. This means only true accidents are happening and mostly not power plays.

Dish Rag Tag
~ We finished and I enjoyed it. This was my first ever swap. I enjoyed that it was something I could knit quickly and not worry if it was something I could finish within a certain time limit and could make it look good enough that I wasn't embarrassed to send it on.


Knitting

I'm working on 2 new projects. I have taken on the Hemlock Ring Blanket and I'm working on Ashleigh's socks.

This is myblanket progress to row/round 90. I'm knitting this with Cascade 220 Superwash on size 8 Addi Turbo needle.



Ashleigh's socks are coming along. They are going to have a short cuff. This is my first two socks on two circular project. I'm knitting them on size 3 Addi Turbo Lace needles.



I love the Addi needles. Unless something bizarre happens, I won't be buying straights again - only Addi circulars. My favorites are the lace needles because of the pointiness (watch out though because you really can poke a hole in your finger).

Reading

I've been listening to alot of audiobooks while I've been knitting. I love the Hoover Public Library (and the Jefferson County Library) for having Overdrive and NetLibrary audiobooks for their patrons and the large selection of books on tape and CD. There have been too many audiobooks to suggest just one at this time, but the book series I'm suggesting at this time is by Charlaine Harris. The Harper Connelly Mysteries (paranormal) beginning with Grave Sight and Grave Surprise. The third book An Ice Cold Grave has just been published and I enjoyed it. If you enjoy paranormal mysteries this is a good series to read.

Family

The fam is rocking along with school and work. Things are going well.

I am so glad that you are back!

It was great to meet you at the Harry event! I had been wondering whatever happened to you. All of your projects are looking great!

Charlaine Harris' books are such a hoot! I'll be looking for you on Ravelry. I'm just begun to use - it is great for looking up potential projects and the different versions that have already been knit.
