Welcome

Join me as I share my crafty journey with you. I continue to expand my repertoire of hobbies. I knit, sew, crochet, bead and probably most importantly am a lover of science fiction. Occasionally I even pick up a book. I play Nerd Wars for Team Stargate Command which consumes most of my time.

There, I couldnt get this to work earlier.  So this is the Elsebeth Lavold Baby Llama I was ranting about earlier, still loving it.  The hat is going slowly since I'm only getting to it on my breaks at work.  Its that whole sleeping when I'm not working thing.  Anyway, I wish computers had a feelovision setting, this yarn is beyond soft.

Should be sleeping....

Several people just left the company, either for medical reasons or personal reasons, anyway, with three people down on top of the shortages that already existed we're missing like five or six people right now.  I've been covering vacations on night shift and now, I'm helping to cover evening shift as well, so the whole point is that I'm not getting a day off until next Monday, so May basically...  I'm not really complaining I want the money, Its just that its a combination of all three shifts, so when I'm not at work I'm going to be sleeping.  Which means not alot of time for knitting or my shows.... oh well, at least when this is done, I'll have a little extra cash to blow on some really nice yarn!  I'm thinking some Madelinetosh.  Or maybe I'll go out to Jamesville and check out the Yarn Cupboard, they have Spud and Chloe.

Here goes nothin...

So, I did it.  I got myself a blog, because I think someone out there might care about my crazy life.....  Anyway, I'm going to dive right in.  I'm working on a fun project right now.  Its one of the Hermione hats, Cable and Eyelet Hat by Jackie Lauseng.  I'm using Elsebeth Lavold Baby LLama and so far I am loving this yarn.  I do find it thin for a worsted, probably because its 2 ply, but the softness is worth it all the way.
