I got Endora finished yesterday morning and blocked it out. I think it turned out great! It’s a little smaller than I thought it would be but that is ok. I really like the way it turned out. After I finished it I thought I should get started on these socks to go with it so I got one done yesterday. I would have had both done but this isn’t a good weekend I have been sleeping a lot. I don’t like the toe shaping so I think I am going to try again but the rest of it looks good. I wanted to take my blanket and sock to my LYS to show and see what I need to improve on and she loved it and told me what I did wrong one the toe so now I know what I need to fix. I told her she had created a monster with the socks after I get these done I am going to start on a pair for myself and see how that goes. While I was there I was checking out her new stock she got in some get spring colors so I had to get some pretty pink Cascade Sierra Pima Cotton to make a hat, I also got another ball of Sirdar to make sure I would have enough to make a hat to match. When I was all paid for and walking out the door Christie gave me a big hug and said there is something just for you in the bag this is after the last time I was thereshe gave me a knitting bag the is so big I could use it for a beach bag, so I wait until I get out to the car and peek in the bag and there is a little pink bag stapled. I love surprises! She stuck 2 hanks of lovely Cascade Luna such a pretty shade of blue . It is 100% Peruvain Cotton and so soft ! Now I get to make another hat!! Well now I am off to knit another sock! Wish me luck!! Happy knitting!

Pay no attention to the dates on the pictures 🙂 I forgot to set it!
I have pretty much been knitting most of the day I did take a break to go and get some yarn to make a matching pair of sock and hat to go with the baby blanket. I got some Sirdar Snuggly Fair Isle Dk that is just really pretty colors I als got Baby knits head to toe that has some really cute patterns in it and I finally broke down and bought some Trekking XXL I lost the ball band when I was playing so I don’t know the color, oh and I can’t forget that I bought a pair of Addi Turbo’s size 2 40″. So that was my day some shopping therapy! I sent most of tonight knitting on the blanket I am almost done as you can see I really like the way it is coming out! I have the cast on and cast of edges to put the border on and then I am done!!! Yeah I should be done with plenty of time to spare! The cables came out so good I think I might make another one sometime soon for Bekah. I must get back to my knitting I had to take a break and let my hands rest for a few minutes. I want to get the one end done before I go to sleep! Happy Knitting!!

So I went to the doctor today and he did not give me the news I wanted to hear. He told me that I need to continue my chemo for a year. I thought I was going to be done on Friday but I assumed wrong! That is what I get for assuming! Oh well. It is going to be a long year. I keep saying this too shall pass…. my mom always said that to me when Chandler was a baby I think it works well for this too! I think I am going to go knit for a while and then make some dinner. Happy knitting!! Have a good night!

I started a new baby blanket the other day for my Joe’s cousin. I have 2 weeks to get it done before her baby shower. I should really start planning ahead instead of thinking that I can get it done in no time at all. So the blanket I picked is called Endora from Berroco you can find it here http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/endora/endora.html I didn’t link the colors they used so I went and got some simply soft in soft baby blue and white for the border. It’s going pretty good.
I have been making some hats for Caps for a cure too I have 3 done so far. I have also been getting some yarn donations for the group. So far I have some chenille coming from Jeanne at the www.stores.ebay.com/the-chenille-shack, and Kerrie from hip knits is send some. So that is exciting! I have a few more places to get ahold of and I am hoping that they will help!
I think I am going to load up my ipod and knit the day away! Have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather!! Happy knitting!!

Sometimes I wonder if I have a brain! I got up this morning at 7am to get the boys up for school but they don’t have school today it’s their last day of spring break then I couldn’t go back to sleep I finally feel back to sleep and then I woke up in a panic because the boys were home! I have to wonder about myself! I have always been a bit flighty as my dad would say or he’d just come right out and call me an air head! I also forgot to say thank you and share my SP7 with you! www.magdesignme.blogspot.com
go check out her blog! I think well I hope that I am done being absent minded! Ok I lied I forgot to say thank you to my ISE pal that sent me this beautiful scarf that I believe was her first project! It is just wonderful I still wear it! Thanl you Selina!! http://knit2socks.blogspot.com
