I went Dancing last night

It was MNO and we blessed a couple expectant Mom's with gifts. I am sure Jessica will post pictures on her blog. We went to Table Rock Brew Pub. Their food is yummy and their beer is good. While I waited for my food Paula got me started on DPNs made by her Dad with a sock pattern written by her Mom. After frogging it many many many times and a bit of help from Heidi at coffee, I finally got the size right and was on my way, Dancing naked with the porcupine. It is good to have talented friends. :) So far I really like dpns much much to my surprise. Oh and the socks, they are for my little sweetie girl.

A Couple Pictures

Here is the yarn I dyed for last months stocking at the
Congo The Cherry Blossom sold right away I still have the Water one. I may have to knit something as a gift out of that. I also did a custom dye I gifted to a momma friend so she could knit up some little longies for her boy bundle that will be here soon.
I could be dangerous now that I have figured out how ot post pictures. LOL
Sweet Cherry Blossom
Autumn Harvest special dye for baby knits

Can I?

Can I just keep on resolving to be a better blogger? I just signed up to join Ravelry. So I have to get better at this blogging thing. I have been knitting and dyeing yarn. I've done some sewing too. Apparently I need to open a Flicker account so that is on my list for today. There are over 16,000 people ahead of me waiting on their invite from Ravelry. WOW!!! That is a lot of people.
I also got some raw fleece I need to wash and get ready for spinning which I am hoping to start doing soon. Okay now to figure out how to post some pictures here. :)
This is my raw fleece, the ultimate fluffy mail

so I'm Obviously NOT the greatest blogger

LOL I guess I just need to develop the habit of coming here.
I have been knitting and I joined a congo on Hyenacart to sell some of the things I make. You can see it here http://hyenacart.com/Majestic It is a bunch of real life friends from here in Idaho who got together to sell our wares. we have been sharing with each other and learning from each other for years. We have bought and swapped items from one another as well. We just had our second stocking. I love to see what everyone comes up with for our themes. Next stocking is Sept 13 It is going to be a really great theme.

I will post some pictures of the fun stuff I have been working on.

I entered a contest here for a baby carrier made by Jen of All Natural Mommies you can enter too.

So I decided to start something

Since I started a blog yesterday I figured today would be a great day to start things. So I have started back on my eating plan which includes keeping a food journal. Um Started that.. I also started exercising again Pilates this morning.
I started making a menu again which will help with my eating plan. Let's see what else do I need to start.

Oh yeah I have a problem with starting things and somehow they don't get finished. Especially projects that involve yarn and sticks. So I have started finishing up unfinished knitting projects. I will post pictures of my projects here as they get finished.
