I got a nw computer!

I got a new laptop today! I really really like it! All night I have been moving pictures from one computer to another and I can say that they are all on one now! Yeah me! (Okay! I'm watching WAY too much of the sweet life of Zach and Cody).

Finally! Here are the photos from my KTS 4 from Finland. Heli really spoiled me!

Another day

Well like I mentioned in the last post we are finally repainting the basement. I am not sure I like the colour I bought last year (yeah its been a year since I bought the paint) but hubby is going to move his office downstairs and we will have a rec room done there. The Wii and a satelite and a small section maybe for me for my crafts. There is room in the closet for all my yarn. Yeah!

Will keep you posted and add pics!

I am a yarnaholic or a yarn

Last night while I was doing laundry I decided to straighten up some of my yarn. I had moved some from the laundry room to the rec room size - but since hubby is filling holes and sanding (today) I decided to move it back.

So I thought I'd see how much I have. Holy cow batman! At this point and I am not finished! I am sitting with 8171 grams of yarn. Not counting the three other totes full of yarn, nor counting the basket that I know holds 4 - 1 pound balls, nor does it count the dress bag that is full too. Also I didn't count yarn that was on the needles.

I think I have enough to last for awhile. I categoried it as well but I don't have it figured out on this paper but I do downstairs.

So I am confessing to be a yarnaholic or a yarn wh*re! I wonder how long it would take me to knit it all if I didn't buy any new yarn. hmmmmmm

Happy Knitting!

Photos of Christmas Gift and 2 finished projects

Here is a photo of the yarn I got for Christmas and the two scarves I just finished.

Saturday's musings

What a beautiful day! I saw a bunch of people out doing yard work today. It would be just an ordinary day but this is JANUARY folks! We don't do yard work in January - unless you count shovelling snow as yard work.

I hae finished of scarves number 4 and 5. Yeah! These were suppose to be done for Christmas as gifts by my arm gave out. I am taking it easy but its still sore. Only 2 balls of Radiant to use. I love how these scarves look. They are so pretty.

I will post pictures later.

Back to the Jane Doe mysteries on the Hallmark channel.

Out of commission

I am out of commission today. I woke up with a bad stomach ache that left me in the bathrooom for a while. To put it politely. I have slept most of the morning and probably will be heading back there shortly. My son is home to with croup! He's 10 and still getting it. So we are sleeping and having soup. My daughter is mad as she had to go to school.

Have a good day.

Wordless Saturday

2008 Finished Projects

Three completions so far

Well I am starting the year off with a bang! I have completed 3 scarves so far and number for is 1/4 of the way done. I will post pictures when the camera battery gets charged. They were all made with Radiant yarn that I purchased at Walmart. Each ball has 50 grams so I have used up 300 grams of yarn! Yeah me!

It normally takes me about 3 hours to knit a scarf but with the bummed up arm its taking a day and I am taking breaks in between.

My goal is to finish off the 25 things I had on my Christmas list for 2007. Will post them as soon as I find the list again. (I know where it is) hehe

I am on Ravelry as well and will list my stash there. I really don't want to know who much yarn I have. I think hubby would blow a gasket.

Well off to knit. Have a great weekend and happy knitting!

Happy New Year!

Its hard to believe another year has come and gone. I guess the saying the older you get the faster the days go.

We stayed home last night and had munchies and chips. Not the healthiest in meals but the kids enjoyed it. I knitted abit and went to bed at 10:30pm. I know! I know! But I was up at 5 am. The kids went to bed around 1 or 2 am and slept till 10 am. I finished another scarf and have started another. That will make 3 since saturday!

Today all the stores were closed here in Canada so we did a border run. It was fun using the NEXUS lane. A few people thought we were cutting in front of them but I flashed the card. hehe. Wasn't funny went we won the lottery though. We were one of the random people who got to go to secondary but with the NEXUS card we were the next ones to go. Fifteen minutes later we were heading to the stores. Didn't buy alot, some groceries and a webkin for my daughter.

I will have to think of my New Year resolutions as I always seem to never complete them.

I hope everyone has enjoyed their day!
