My 2007 goals for Summer of Stash Out and the Skeins Her Way contest

Any way..... my goals:

1. Not to buy any yarn until after the Labour Day weekend (depending on how much of the stash I have used). See April 2,2007 blog for pictures of the stash. My blog is:

2. To complete some of my UFO's:
a. Matt's sweater just needs to be sewed
b. Miki's sweater
c. Poncho - not sure who its for yet - jsut needs to be sewed
d. The 6 cable sweater I started back in 1992 that no longer will fit but is almost done.
f. Sewing buttons on a few things that need them and tucking ends into others so that
they are 100% finished.
3. To work on depleting some of my new yarns into the projects that I bought them for:
1. Bernat Satin top for me
2. Hat for Matt - can't think of the name but its 100% virgin wool
3. Hat for Miki - same as above
4. Cotton top for me - Twilley's Freedom Cotton DK in navy
5. various scarves that I have done - just have to be sewed
6. to use up some of the dish cloth yarns that I have had for awhile.
4. I won't buy any more yarn on sale till after the SSO is done or till I use up alot of this yarn.
5. To work on the project of the month and finish them.
I think that's good for me for now. Could add more if I get through these lists.


1. A knitting magazine that may come out during this time
2. A ball of yarn to finish a project. Shouldn't have too as I normally buy an extra ball.
3. If I go on a fab holiday and see an awesome yarn shop and the yarn calls to me. Fat chance this will happen but if it does I would be aloud.
4. Extra stitch counter if I have mutiple things on the go or I loose one. I really don't need any extra knitting stuff as I have alot as is.
5. Yarn for the project of the month. I probably will have the yarn in my stash but I may have to add to it depending on the project.
What's in it for me in the end.

Yarn used up and a feeling of accomplishment. Hopefully some Christmas presents will be finished and I won't be rushed then.

Skeins Her Way blog

I was directed to this blog by Rycrafty about a contest for a fitted tank top and 4 balls of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton. Who could resist that! lol Here is the blog link to go to the contest:

Here is how to enter the contest. You must do it on her blog not mine but mention that you saw it here.

"""""First place winner will receive 1 copy of the pattern along with 4 hanks of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton in their choice of colors! Second & third place winners will each receive a copy of the pattern and whatever other goodies happen to jump into the package just before sealing and sending...

The warmer weather has moved in, even here in Minnesota, and I will be casting on a tank of my own very soon- maybe 2 as I can't seem to decide which color to do!

Okay, so here are the contest rules- all you have to do is:

1.) Leave a comment on this post letting me know what color you want and mention who's blog you heard about the contest on (if you jumped from a blog and if you can remember...)

2.) Then head to your blog and post a list of your summer knitting goals (there may be an end-of-summer contest of some sort to celebrate summer knitting accomplishments...) and mention this contest (with a link to this post-

3.) Lastly e-mail me with the link to your post! (ali AT skeins her way DOT com) Be sure to mention in your post for anyone who follows your link to let me know what blog they jumped from as every 'referral' will earn you another entry!

Contest will run through the end of the month (May) and my talented children will draw three winning names (or secret blogging identities) out of a container of some sort on June 1st.

Think about your summer knitting, make your lists, and get blogging!

Happy knitting,

Fiore Scarf Done

Well I started a scarf tonight and finished it. The first two balls went really quick. I used 5 balls of Fiore, earth tones, and 9mm needles. It hands almost to my feet! lol I can double it or wrap it a few times around me. Might be a christmas gift - not sure yet.

So 195 yards or 250 grams of yarn used along with the Bernat Cotton I used earlier today. Not bad!

I'll take a photo of it later as its time for bed.

What I did on the long weekend

Well I can't believe that the weather sucked! Okay! I should because it always sucks on our May 2-4. But I wasn't expecting the rain!

I read two books this weekend, knitted two dishcloths and went to my sisters today. I also, went to the cemetery and planted some flowers on my great grandparents grave. They are the only ones with out any so I decided its time to change that! I planted some hostas (I split one of mine at home), 2 plants from my sisters (I divided them too and not sure what they are. Daisies of some sort?) and 3 Ostrepermums (sp??). Two orange and one white. I added fresh dirt and my niece helped me. She was a good girl. We watered them and the flowers that my mom had on my grandparents grave.

My other niece is just giggling up a storm and VERY ticklelish. Loves her auntie Leigh.

Well of to take a hot shower as I am freezing! And pack to head to the farm tomorrow to plant my garden. I think Quincy will be going on a road trip with me. When I get back its my garden to be done.

Have a great night.

Yahoo! Its the longweekend!

Yep you read right! Its the May 2-4 weekend. Dd and hubby have gone to the farm for the weekend. Ds and I are staying home. Ds is going to a friends house for a birthday sleepover. Hopefully tonight then we can head up tomorrow and visit too. Hubby and in-laws are having a big yard sale too. I have put somethings on it and hopefully hubby will abide by my prices!

I went to mass this morning for the Mass of Mary. My daughters class and another were putting it on. They were all so cute! Hubby got the front lawn cut and I did the back while he tilled my garden. Add 4 bags of cow poop and he retilled and I am set to plant! Yes!! hehe Hopefully tonight if not tomorrow.

I've got alot plans but haven't started anything yet. Have to pick up ds at 2:30 and get some groceries. I purposely ran stuff low so it wouldn't be wasted.

Well off to watch As the World Turns.

We went state side the other day and I picked up maggie Sefton's newest book, "A Killer Stitch" and its killing me! lol I have decided to read it on the long weekend and it starts tomorrow. If all goes well I will have it done by Saturday.

I have read her other three books and got into it from one of my dishcloths swaps. Thansk to Linda S who sent me A Deadly Yarn. I was hooked! I am going to pick up the other two next time I do a border run. Haven't found them here in Sarnia but I did see them at Barnes and Nobles. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

Starting tomorrow or Monday I am participating in the 2007 Summer Stash Out (similar to the SOS of last year). Anyone who feels like participating feel free to join. Here's the link:

Today I am fighting and loosing my battle with my headache. Not sure if its Sinus headache or a Migraine. Being vertical is helping but I just feel like going back to bed. Plus I have a shit load of stuff to do today, namely laundry, pricing stuff for the yard sale at the farm, packing, and dd soccer game to night. I think hubby can go to that.

Well better go and get dressed. Maybe that will help.

Happy Mother's Day!

The kids let me sleep in till 8:30am. And then I got to open my presents: the cd from Carrie Underwood "Some Hearts", tin of Turtles, a spider plant from Miki's class and a little thing Miki had gotten at school to hold cards.

We left at 10:30 to head up to my parents trailer at Washakie Golf Club, North Branch, MI. Its about 20 minutes east of Lapeer and once we cross the bridge its about an hour. We stopped in North Branch for lunch and when we got back on the road that T's up with Washakie(Burnside I think), my sister family was just going past us. So we followed them the rest of the way. They have an extra half hour drive than we do. The kids went fishing and my nephew caught a fish right away. Then it was who could catch the next one. I don't think anyone did.

Went into Lapeer and went to Kohl's and got a few tops for the kids and hubby. We got back home around 6:30pm (poor doggie was crossing his legs as we didn't bring him with us).

Next I am going to watch the 3 hour finally Survivor and then go to bed. It was a pretty good day.

My trails and tribulations with the IHS (Irish Hiking Scarf)!!

I really don't think I am suppose to knit this. Ugh!! I have ripped out it out a couple of times as I didn't like the yarn that I was using. I finally found a yarn that I like and its turning out great. I have 3 inches done.

BUT!!! I have now lost the pattern with the rows that I have completed and do not know which row I am on. I think I know but am not sure. Errrrr!!

I am using Charleston yarn by Stylecraft. It is 67% Acrylic Courtelle, 33% Nylon. The colour is white with flecks of yellow, blue, pink and it so softy and fuzzy. perfect for the scarf. I thought that I would work on it tonight but I guess I'm not.

Hopefully this sheet is around my messy desk somewhere. Maybe in the glove box of the car. Will have to check when hubby gets home.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Prayer Shawl is finished!

I did it! And I have a month and a half to spare. I finished it up this afternoon. I should of been doing housework but dd was at a friends, hubby and son at the farm and it was just the dog and I. Sooooooo I did want any mom would do. I sat down and finished off a project.

With it around my shoulders it hangs to my knees and its nice and warm. I haven't decided if I want to fringe it or not. To fringe or not to fringe? This is the question I ask myself. hehehe I won't loose any sleep over it if I don't fringe it and I do have alot of yarn left over. I just might use it and make a scarf for someone.

Well hubby and son are due in in about an hour. Depending on traffic and speeding.

New blog - 2007 Summer Stash Out

I've created a new blog for the summer called the 2007 Summer Stash Out. I've been waiting for another stash out to start but I believe the people are busy and haven't decided if they wish to run it. I know the feeling! I've been contemplating this for a month now and thought I run one myself. Never done that before!

I wanted to get it up and running as the holiday weekend (weekends depending on what country your in) is coming very soon.

For those who would like to participate it very simple. Between the May 2-4 weekend (or Memorial Day weekend) and Labour Day weekend we will vow to knit from our stash. Thus being said, you can vow to finish up those works in progress. Yes, we all have at least one haning around! Or you can vow to working on your knitted/crochet Christmas list and actually have them out and done on time this year.

Here is the blog link:

So feel free to pop in and if you like to sign up we would love to have you!

Thursdays doodlings

Wow what a rain storm we had yesterday. Thunder and lighting in the morning and just rain, rain and more rain. The gardens and the lawn needed it desparately though. Will be weeding the flower beds I guess this weekend.

Been working on my shawl and I am still at ball 1 1/2. Ball three turned out to be more beige than green so I took it back to the good people at Sarnia Craft Supply and was able to switch it for one similar to my colours. The die lot, colour and brand were all identical. Not sure what the good people at Lion Brand were smoking but it must of been good. {{I'm in a silly - bashing mood}}

DD and I had a district advancement last night. Kim and Tammy did an amazing job of decorating the gym. Everyone had a great time and our rap song got applause. lol We (as in all the leader's of our district) gave our district leader a rose bud tree. She loved it! Ontario guiding is changing so this was the last of its kind last night. And all the girls behaved very well and the cake was good as well.

Had lunch with my good friend Karen and got to talk shop. Looked at the flowers at Zehrs and contiplating what I want to put in my gardens this year. Not sure of everything I want in the veggie patch as well.

Well I should go and get something done!

White House rolls out the red carpet for state visit by the Queen

WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington turned out with adoring schoolchildren and ladies in hats for the Queen's visit.

The White House, too, laid on special touches at President George W. Bush's first-ever white-tie state dinner to make the Queen feel welcome. The centuries-old vermeil flatware and candelabras came from a London silversmith. A sugar replica of the Queen's 1953 coronation rose graced the cake. English farmhouse cheeses accompanied the salad course.

And the traditional "special guest" invited only at the last minute was sure to be of interest to an avid horse enthusiast such as the Queen: Calvin Borel, the jockey who rode Street Sense to victory in the Kentucky Derby this weekend with the royals in attendance.

"It's just like winning the Kentucky Derby - it might even be better," Borel said as he arrived for the dinner.

On the other hand, there was the president suggesting the Queen Elizabeth is over 230 years old.

The president's slip of the tongue during morning welcoming speeches was quickly smoothed over with humour. But it wasn't exactly the flawless effort Bush had hoped would erase memories of the "talking hat" episode during the Queen's last U.S. visit.

In 1991, during Bush's father's administration, a too-tall lectern left the audience able to see only the Queen's hat behind microphones.

The Queen, a sprightly 81, gave an embarrassed Bush a gracious nod after he suggested she had celebrated the United States' founding in 1776. He meant to say she had attended 1976 bicentennial festivities.

"She gave me a look that only a mother could give a child," the president quipped, earning a reserved chuckle from his guest.

mentioned "freedom" and "liberty" seven times.

"Your majesty, I appreciate your leadership during these times of danger and decision," he said.

By contrast, the Queen said her fifth journey to the United States in 50 years was an occasion to "step back from our current preoccupations."

In the leaders' toasts at dinner, they took opposite tacks. Bush praised her for a reign that has "deepened our friendship and strengthened our alliance," while the British monarch talked of the threat of terror, problems like climate change and the likelihood of occasional disagreement between allies.

"Ours is a partnership always to be reckoned with in the defence of freedom and the spread of prosperity," she said.

Earlier gaffes aside, the day had the White House at its freshly painted best and inspired excitement inside and outside its gates.

Under lampposts adorned with the two countries' flags, throngs hoping for a rare glimpse of royalty lined Pennsylvania Avenue for much of the day. Hats of all shapes bobbed down downtown streets in unusually high numbers.

Laura Bush insisted at midday that the president was enthusiastic about wearing white tie and tails - though admittedly after being persuaded by his wife and secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, to elevate the dinner to that exalted level in the first place.

"We thought if we ever were going to have a white-tie dinner, this was going to be it," Laura Bush said.

Presidential spokesman Tony Snow disputed any notion the royal visit was a welcome break for a White House burdened by low approval ratings and acrimonious tussles with congressional Democrats over the Iraq war.

"There's a lot of other activity going on," he said tersely.

The Queen and Prince Philip were treated to a trumpet fanfare, a 21-gun salute and a parade by the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps at a morning arrival ceremony attended by thousands of guests. From there, the Bushes and the royals repaired to a very exclusive lunch, with only the two countries' ambassadors and a few family members.

The leaders and their spouses then mingled briefly on the street with dozens of British and U.S. schoolchildren. Bush, in the unusual position of playing second fiddle, followed while the Queen accepted bouquets of flowers and signed autographs.

Surrounded by a full honour cordon, the first couple greeted the royals on the North Portico for the fifth state dinner of the Bush presidency. Laura Bush helped the Queen from her car and advance co-ordination kept the ladies' attire from clashing.

Laura Bush wore an aqua creation by Oscar de la Renta with rhinestones, silver beading and a bolero jacket, while the Queen had a cream gown with a sparkling bodice, a blue sash, long white gloves and a diamond tiara.

Among the 134 guests in the State Dining Room decked out in white and gold were scores of diplomats, businessmen and members of Congress. Other than Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and golfer Arnold Palmer, the celebrity quotient was low.

A number of top Bush fundraisers made the cut. Some were so-called Rangers, who raised over US$200,000 for Bush's 2004 re-election campaign, including automotive executive James Click, investor Brad Freeman and former Enron president Richard Kinder. Former U.S. commerce secretary Donald Evans, who ran Bush's campaign fundraising in 2000, was also in attendance.

The menu and entertainment were designed as a showcase of U.S. best: spring pea soup with caviar, Dover sole almondine, spring lamb with chanterelle sauce and local vegetables and an arugula, mustard greens and romaine salad, said executive chef Cristeta Comerford.

Virtuoso Itzhak Perlman was playing violin after the meal.

But after all the excitement and hundreds of hours of preparation, Laura Bush suggested the white-tie affair could not only be their first - but last. She called the dinner, somewhat wistfully, "the most elegant and most formal that we'll host."

Can this really be called spy wear? Come on now!!

I just had to post this! Its hilarious!

Canada's poppy quarters caused sensational warnings of 'spy coins' in U.S.
Mon May 7, 4:49 PM

By Ted Bridis

WASHINGTON (AP) - An odd-looking Canadian quarter with a bright red flower was the culprit behind a false espionage warning from the U.S. Defense Department about mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters, The Associated Press has learned.

The harmless "poppy quarter" was so unfamiliar to suspicious U.S. army contractors travelling in Canada that they filed confidential espionage accounts about them. The worried contractors described the coins as "filled with something man-made that looked like nano-technology," according to once-classified U.S. government reports and e-mails obtained by the AP.

The silver-coloured 25-cent piece features the red image of a poppy, Canada's flower of remembrance, inlaid over a maple leaf. The unorthodox quarter is identical to the coins pictured and described as suspicious in the contractors' accounts.

The supposed nano-technology on the coin actually was a protective coating the Royal Canadian Mint applied to prevent the poppy's red colour from rubbing off. The mint produced nearly 30 million such quarters in 2004 commemorating Canada's 117,000 war dead.

"It did not appear to be electronic (analog) in nature or have a power source," wrote one U.S. contractor, who discovered the coin in the cup holder of a rental car. "Under high power microscope, it appeared to be complex consisting of several layers of clear, but different material, with a wire-like mesh suspended on top."

The confidential accounts led to a sensational warning from the Defense Security Service, an agency of the Defense Department, that mysterious coins with radio frequency transmitters were found planted on U.S. contractors with classified security clearances on at least three separate occasions between October 2005 and January 2006 as the contractors travelled through Canada.

"We'll have a good laugh over it," said John Regitko, who writes a newsletter for a leading coin-collecting organization, the Canadian Numismatic Association. "We never suspected there was such a thing (as spy coins) anyway."

Regitko predicted the quarter will become especially popular among collectors because of its infamy as the culprit behind the spy warning, despite the quarter's wide availability. "Everybody has some in their drawer at home," he said.

One contractor believed someone had placed two of the quarters in an outer coat pocket after the contractor had emptied the pocket hours earlier. "Coat pockets were empty that morning and I was keeping all of my coins in a plastic bag in my inner coat pocket," the contractor wrote.

The Defense Department subsequently acknowledged it could never substantiate the espionage warning, but until now it has never disclosed the details behind the embarrassing episode.

In Canada, senior intelligence officials had expressed annoyance with the American spy-coin warnings as they tried to learn more about the oddball claims.

"That story about Canadians planting coins in the pockets of defence contractors will not go away," Luc Portelance, now deputy director for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, wrote in a January e-mail to a subordinate. "Could someone tell me more? Where do we stand and what's the story on this?"

Others in Canada's spy service also were searching for answers. "We would be very interested in any more detail you may have on the validity of the comment related to the use of Canadian coins in this manner," another intelligence official wrote in an e-mail. "If it is accurate, are they talking industrial or state espionage? If the latter, who?" The identity of the e-mail's recipient was censored.

Intelligence and technology experts were flabbergasted over the warning when it was first publicized earlier this year. The warning suggested that such transmitters could be used surreptitiously to track the movements of people carrying the coins.

"I thought the whole thing was preposterous, to think you could tag an individual with a coin and think they wouldn't give it away or spend it," said H. Keith Melton, a leading intelligence historian.

But Melton said the army contractors properly reported their suspicions. "You want contractors or any government personnel to report anything suspicious," he said. "You can't have the potential target evaluating whether this was an organized attack or a fluke."

The Defense Security Service disavowed its warning about spy coins after an international furor. The United States said it never substantiated the contractors' claims and performed an internal review to determine how the false information was included in a 29-page published report about espionage concerns.

The Defense Security Service never examined the suspicious coins, spokeswoman Cindy McGovern said. "We know where we made the mistake," she said. "The information wasn't properly vetted. While these coins aroused suspicion, there ultimately was nothing there."

A numismatist consulted by the AP, Dennis Pike of Canadian Coin & Currency near Toronto, quickly matched a grainy image and physical descriptions of the suspect coins in the contractors' confidential accounts to the 25-cent poppy piece.

"It's not uncommon at all," Pike said. He added that the coin's protective coating glows peculiarly under ultraviolet light. "That may have been a little bit suspicious," he said.

Some of the U.S. documents the AP obtained were classified "Secret/Noforn," meaning they were never supposed to be viewed by foreigners, even the United States' closest allies. The government censored parts of the files, citing national security reasons, before turning over copies under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.

Nothing in the documents, except the reference to nanotechnology, explained how the contractors' accounts evolved into a full-blown warning about spy coins with radio frequency transmitters. Many passages were censored, including the names of contractors and details about where they worked and their projects.

But there were indications the accounts should have been taken lightly. Next to one blacked-out sentence was this warning: "This has not been confirmed as of yet."

The Canadian intelligence documents, which also were censored, were turned over to the AP for $5 under Canada's Access to Information Act. Canada cited rules for protecting against subversive or hostile activities to explain why it censored the papers.

A great weekend

Well I finished off "Back on Blossom Street (or back to blossom street) by Debbie Macomber and I loved it. I always love her books any ways. lol I also read a book by Mary Kruger called, Died in the Wool. I really liked it. Was a good pace and I enjoyed the characters. Now I am reading one of her books set in 1895, a mystery as well and the name escapes me at the moment. I am enjoying it as well.

Also, I casted on my prayer shawl last night. Got 30 rows done last night and I am almost done the first ball of yarn. I am doing it in the Mediterranean colour and love it! Greens and browns are my favourite!

Its a nice day out today and hubby has cut the grass, drained the pool (hopefully it can be opened soon), hehe, and some other stuff outside. Myself, I went shopping (nothing interesting) but groceries and stuff for the house and a new soccer ball for the kids.

Well off to start supper and do some more laundry.

Have a great night. It is suppose to be in the 20's this week so it will be a fabulous week!
