*whoa* while typing that I got ambushed by girl scouts at my house selling expensive cookies. But since I remember being a girl scout (all the way through high school I might add), I ordered 2 boxes. 1 samoas 1 tagalog.

I would like to note that I would have posted the war president collage if it weren't for ervy's bday today. I knew i was going to wish him happy birthday, and an unhappy inaugaration isn't gonna stop me!

knitting update


I reveal Sophie with beaded handle!!

The beads are all glass, plus a few swarovski crystals thrown in for good measure (ok it's really for the wonderful sparkle in the light... ooh sparkles). I bought the hand grommet tool from Joanns over the weekend. i was a complete idiot I completely forgot about the 50% off coupon i had gotten in the mail for that weekend. so I payed a ghastly $17. But I'm happy to report that I LOVE the hand grommet tool. I've used the hammer ones, and I found this to be much much easier to use. For loops, I made silver spirals out of heavy gauge wire and hammered them flat to attach the handle to the bag.

My pastor hat is almost done... I had planned to do the aran hat from the knit a day calendar, but I realized it might be too girly, guys seem to like these beanie hats better... so here it is... well almost.

Here's my Musique scarf on the needles, neglected. Poor thing, I just keep finding projects that need to be finished before it. The funny thing about this is that Delia my knitting twin also just bought the musique yarn (in a sandy color scheme) to do an instant gratification scarf. I think she must be somehow reading my knitting to do list...

I'm almost done with one of the armwarmers for my cousin's birthday... see!

I've also learned how to yo and ssk (celebrate the little things right?). I got to use both knitting a lace bookmark, I forgot to take a photo of it, so y'all can just pretend you see it... you DO see it RIGHT?!!

It's girl scout cookie time? Yay!

The Sophie bag is gorgeous, of course! I love the handles.

And happy birthday to Ervy! Did you do anything special to celebrate?

Sorry you felt the inauguration was sad!
For your back- there is a great arthritis cream, the active ingredient is capsaicin. Get some of that, apply SPARINGLY to your back. Take your ibuprofen around the clock. And try not to lift. THis should help out the spasms tremendously.

Love your knitting. Will be back to visit!!
