Tequilla before a wedding shower? Sure, why not?

Last weekend I went up to the now famous lake house for a fun-filled eve to a friends wedding shower. The was much drinking and dancing, I do believe the pictures speak for themselves. Night two, there was less drinking but we still danced and had a ball getting spa treatments at the local coffee house which hosts and all girls spa night once a month. This is the way to live!

Party, party. Dance, Dance.

Pause to make a towel cake for a shower present.

Party, party. Drink, drink.

oh, and I got a new haircut.....

Stick a fork in her, she's done!

There's not much to say here. The Chevron scarf is finally finished!!!!
Yes, I plan to make another one (larger needles, maybe even heavier yarn). But I really enjoyed the pattern and watching the colors work up. I think next time I might switch things up and add some 4 rows along with the regular 2 rows. Other than that, all I can say is, blocking wires. Get some blocking wires. So much easier. Gosh I hate blocking but I so love the effect!

I do wish you could see the texture better, it actually has a nice pattern to it as well. Mmm, I think I may just have a new favorite scarf in my home.

This is way off

I think this quiz underestimates me which right there should get me some points (isn't it always the least likely to reach the credits?) Geez, I know to kill the brain, and we even have The Zombie Survival Guide in the house. I know if I didn't stop to save my loved ones I would have gotten at least a 65%!

In knitting news, the Chevron scarf should be finished up tonight. Then there's just blockin' and wearin' to look forward to!

Because I apparently had more time available to waste than I first thought

So I got my invite to join Ravelry last week and I've been kinda going a little crazy getting myself set up over there and neglecting my blogging duties. Sorry.
However, I have gotten some knitting done including a cotton baby hat and about 15 miles of chevron scarf (ok, 3/4 of it which is approximately the same thing.)

I've also managed to watch season 1 of 24 as well as the first four episodes of season 2, hence so much knitting accomplished. This past season (6) was the first time I really watched it. Now, after going back and watching the first one,and picking out 99% of all the bad guys and plot points I might add, I'm hooked! Shoot and I'm already still playing catch up on Lost! Ahh, one high intensity show at a time please.

Oh, but back to knitting. I have begun the depressing job of frogging things with 2 inches of dust on them including the few inches of the second Monkey sock that I never got around to finishing. I haven't had the strength to pull out the first one yet being 75% of the way though but I do intend to because I want this pair to be just right. Call it spring (summer) cleaning but it just seemed like time to take the needles back from the basket of the un-done and call those projects flubs. I plan to revamp my knitting world by frogging things that have errors and ditching the yarns that don't give me that special jingle. There's a lot of junk yarn floating about the house from "deals" I got or just unfinished projects that I have no plan to complete and it's time for them to go. I figure if I let it sit for too long the yarn will go bad and get crunchy or stinky or faded and then it'll be no good to anyone. Now I just need to put my plans into action. See, it's all so simple I can't believe I didn't do this sooner ;-)
