I've been cheating on my yarn...

I'm a bad bad girl.... This is why I haven't been blogging.

My new toy
Here are a few things I made. If you want more info on them click on the pic and the info :) I'm lazy today and don't feel like posting all the links.

Playing with my b-day gift005002

I've been knitting still, alittle. I'm still working on the lime shawl, I just started clue 6 of 7. There has been tons of drama around here...I'll post more about it later...

6 Months of Lily Pie


013014Lily is 6 months old today. And man has it bet one hell of a ride. Up until a little over a week ago Lily couldn't sleep unless she was on me or next to me. Now she takes all of her naps in her crib and I get to sleep at night. wooohooo! She has started cereal and fruits but so far only likes pears. We are only doing one meal of solids right now, lunch. She still love the boobies and will not take a sippy cup or a bottle. She doesn't like the pacifier anymore. She loves to roll around on the floor and play in her exersaucer. She likes to play in Trinity's old one upstairs wile I spin. She loves to look at trees when she goes for walks. She loves the cats and the dogs. Her hips are "normal". We got the U/S back, one is 59.something the other is at 58.something. 60 is normal. Here is a little secret...She only had her harness on for the 1st week. My gut told me not to put it on her, that and I hated the thing with ever fiber in my stash. Well I guess I'm lucky it worked out well. I'm so happy to have her off of me. I sat on the couch for about 6m now I can do stuff. I've only left the house without her 3 times and all 3 end with Joe freaking out. I'm hoping now I can do stuff again. I've made friends with the treadmill again and I'm feeling soooo much better.

Let's see, it's been a couple weeks. Well, as you know I'm pissed off about Chrysler. Dh sells Chrysler and well bankruptcy isn't really good for sales and well, I like paying my bills and eating. I know I voted for Obama and McCain is no better and my heart bleeds rainbows but I really don't like the direction this country is going. Can we say Socialism? Hmmm the government runs our banks and the car companies...and we are paying for it. I think that the government is prolonging this recession and trying to scare us with swine flu. Nothing like a pandemic to keep us home and not spending right? I guess that's good for my WIP. OHHH nice transition.

005006I've really only been working on my shawls. I frogged my green Mystic Roses and restarted in a different yarn. This time I'm using Yarntopia Treasures 10/2 Tencel in Antique Rose. I'm still only on the first clue.

007008I'm also plugging away at my Springtime Swirl shawl. I'm working on clue 5 of 7, clue 6 comes out tomorrow. I'm a bit behind but not by much.

I'm also signed up for Mystic Air and Goddess Knit's Anniversary Shawl. Yes I know I'm nuts. And according to the neighbors I'm a bitch too, but that's a story for another time.

002003I've been spinning too. I'll give the specs after they've been plied.

Well this post is getting long...I share an etsy shop next time. The baby is napping and I have a date with the treadmill.

Thank you

I would like to thank Chrysler's bond holders for fucking us so hard our asses are beeding. And would also like to thank Obama for not using enough lube.
