What a difference a day makes...

Since my last post a few things have happened to me. First off, I turned 38 Wednesday. Yaa Hoo! (Thanks for birthday wishes) Then, my job announced a 1 week layoff, which I jumped on with both feet. So, I decided to treat myself for my birthday, and that brings me to where I am now, ARIZONA! That's right, you heard it. As soon as the layoff was confirmed I jumped on the internet and hunted down a great last minute fare, packed, boarded my baby, jumped on the first thing smoking and flew out to Arizona to spend some time with my folks. Since my birthday had just passed, and my mom's is upcoming (25th), it seemed like a great present for both of us.

I'm a little sad though. I truly enjoy my Tuesday night knit out, and am going to miss seeing the ladies this week. So if any of Tuesday at the Bou ladies are reading this, I'll see you guys week after next. Having a great time for me!

I'm looking forward to the much warmer weather here, so I'll be clicking away with my knitting needles and my camera, and hope to have some great things to share.

See ya soon! I'll try to post some updates while I'm here. The views around here are spectacular! And I'd can't wiat to share them with you all.

Count Down To 38!

This weekend will be my last as a 37 yr old. Wednesday, Sept. 20th I'll turn 38. Woo Hoo!!! I probably shouldn't be making such a big deal out of 38, but for me every year is a big deal. I love birthdays!

Here's My Beenie!

I decided to put my "Jaywalker" socks on hold and see if I could make a beenie hat. I found a pattern I liked in "Hats - a Knitter's Dozen" book I had picked up a few months ago. After a couple of false starts the "Beach Beenie" worked up pretty quickly. About one day total knitting time. It's a little shallow for my tastes, but I still like it. It's not to bad if I do say so myself, and it's purple of course. My favorite color.

Look What I Got!

After a particularly rough week at work I got home yesterday to find a package on my porch. I wasn't expecting anything. Needless to say I rushed into the house, ripped open the package, and look what I got...

I fogot I had ordered the KIPer knitting bag set from Knit Picks. I have to say, I wasn't sure if I would really like them. But I am very pleased. I think they are well worth the $50.00 i spent for the set. The sizes are perfect and they seem very sturdy and will be perfect for knitting on the go. I also got 4 skeins on yarn, 2 Gossamer ( Sweet Peas and Blue Jeans), 2 Memories (Smores and Cape Cod). What a great ending to an absolutely awful week. Yeah to me!
