Yeah Half a Collar

Well, I finally finished half of my collar. I've just been chugging away at it all weekend. Now I'm beat. I need sleep so I can rest up for the start of the other half tomorrow.

Knitting and the Home

There once was a SAHM(stay-at-home mother) that lived in a house full of children (not really, just 3). She loved to knit, but couldn't sit cuz refereeing, cooking and cleaning always needed to be done.

HA!!! Who am I kidding? I'm no poet and I don't like to clean takes away my creative time. Sometimes I crack myself up.

I have half of half the collar done on my sweater.'s looking pretty. I will post pics after I finish the whole half.

101 Things To Do in 1001 days

I stumbled onto this today and decided I wanted to participate in 101 things to do in 1001 days...that's only about 3 years.

I will compile my list and will post it when it's ready. I also found this calculator in case you want to try it yourself.

What a way to track your progress in life and the things you tell yourself and others that you want to do or learn or experience someday.

Here's another website I found that is very helpful.

Eris won

Eris house is still a mess. HEHEHE

My poor husband

So I got my Eris yarn late afternoon and then I was on a mission to start my swatches. I was not going to be until I actually started Eris.

After my DH gets home, he's in the kitchen and says to me "You know, sometimes I get irritated when you don't do stuff around the house but then I come home and wonder HOW can you do stuff around the house in the day time?" while the 2 out of 3 little kids are running circles around him while he's trying to fix his plate of food. ***Please take a moment to picture this*** So by now he is sitting down trying to eat while the girls try to eat off of his plate. I am sitting concentrating on measuring my swatches. He asks if I need a break and to go to the room if I did. Little does he know that while working on certain knitting I can choose to totally ignore everything around me. I can visit if I want or I can concentrate so hard that I hear absolutely nothing (i.e. kids screaming). I love knitting for that reason.

Another thing about my DH, and probably every other person that doesn't knit, is how obsessed you can get in a project that when you say "Just one more row" it really means "I won't be in bed til 3 or 4am so don't wait up." :-Þ

I think today I will try to do some housework. If I tackle some really big stuff it'll look like I did a whole bunch and he'll think I've been cleaning all day.

OH!?!?! But wait a minute, I just started do I prioritize my day?

Yeah Eris!!!

I am so obsessed with Eris I can hardly stand it. I think my Knit Picks Andean Silk is coming today but it's not here yet and it's driving me crazy. Last night I couldn't sleep because in my eyelids I was knitting up gauge swatches ALL NIGHT LONG!!!! AAARRRGGGHHH!!!! I almost got out of bed at 5am to knit up swatches or even just start the pattern to see how it would look. This cabled sweater is WAY out of my league but ask me if I care....NOT A BIT. I'm up for the challenge or the abuse even if it takes me a year to do it (it better not). Everyone is making this sweater...I'm all about jumping on the band wagon or peer pressure...whatever you want to call it. When is my yarn going to get here?!?!?!
