My house/wedding budget kept me very reserved I bought a few patterns and some handles to make a felted purse, more addi lace needles and a few other things but I am proud of my restraint and if you were there you know it was hard. (you gave in and had to leave yarn in the car to hide it didn't you!)
I have a few pics to add tomorrow but I am wiped out. After coming home I had to clean up around the house and do way more laundry than should have been left to do, of which I have more to do tomorrow (it has been a few weeks). But heeeelllooo to all of those people we got to meet today. It is neat to meet people that have left comments or who's blogs you have been reading.
Enjoy all of those beautiful things you have acquired today (including the ones that you are still keeping quiet) and take comfort in this final thought......
Last time we went to a show like this I came home with a spinning wheel! Now go get the rest of your yarn out of the car!

One thing that doesn't help is that I received my April Rockin' sock club package today. It made me pick up the inside outside sock and finish it tonight. I put in on right side out..... I put it on inside out.....and I don't like it. I think it will be ripped tomorrow.
Next to be tossed into the pond is the Clementine Shawlette. I like the yarn I like that pattern but I can't see myself really wearing it that much so.....why keep going and deciding that later.
And finally.....Clessidra! I LOVE the look of the pattern. I LOVE the louet gems yarn. I do think the sock looks great so far. But two knee socks ? I have enough trouble with regular length SSS.
I spent tonight looking a few places with Aaron and with my mom and am pretty sure that I know where things will be happening but nothing signed or deposited yet. I guess there will be limited yarn budget for the next year because all of my money will be going toward house and wedding. * sigh* this must really be love!

Grumbling the whole way, eyes barely open, I let the dogs out and waited for them to do their thing outside not bothering to turn on the lights. I couldn't wait to get back to bed.
On my way back in through the kitchen there he was. Completely dressed in his jeans and sweatshirt and hat. "Why are you dressed" I asked, really annoyed at this point, "are you going out somewhere?"
"Didn't you see anything outside?" he asked.
"no" I said "why?"
I couldn't believe it. We had be talking about getting married for a little while now but then the conversations suddenly stopped. The reason they stopped I know now is because he had ordered my ring. It is so beautiful. Just my taste. I love it! I am so happy.
He asked my parents on Friday and showed my mother the ring. We spent this weekend visiting family to let them all know. Now we have a wedding to plan. We are thinking that we will go away for the wedding and then have a reception when we get back.
I'm very overwhelmed and excited.

No lets stick to the knitting!
It has been a while since my last post. I have been knitting a lot..however I have not been knitting on any one thing. I have been averaging a new project a night for the last three nights.
I started Thermal and have knit one inch so far. Exciting I know that is why there is no photo.

P.S. Connie, the cats (at least one) took a liking to my new Addi Turbo Lace needles last night. There are a few teeth bumps on the cord. So when you get home watch out for your needles
It is the Clementine Shawlette from the Spring 2007 Interweave Knits
So to sum it all up... I want to knit! but I am not sure if I should keep going on these projects or frog them. And yes I am aware that I could knit on the numerous other unfinished projects I have in my knitting bag.

I lay in bed for an hour before I had to get up. I think everything I ate yesterday really was still in my tummy. I continued to be sick all night and still feel a little stick and shaky this morning. I am waiting to go to work and tell them they need to get someone in for me today.
This has happened before when I had a migraine. I knew what I was doing for the day but didn't have everything set up. So today when I wish I could just not go at all I have to go and put away the things that are covering my desk so that someone can work for me today. Yuck I wanna go back to bed.

The reason I titled this post Speak up was because I need to learn to do that a little more. You never know what could happen. I was knitting in the waiting room at the dentist's office today. I have had people in waiting rooms ask me about my knitting before but the woman today knew it was a sock (it was duets and they use the afterthought heel so it could have been just about anything) we talked about the sock. She said that she thought it was a sock and that the first thing she did was check my feet (I was wearing store bought socks today). Did I speak up and ask her if she was a knitter? No. She was more interested that the average person who just stares a bit. Little old ladies love to see me knit in public because they can't believe someone my age is knitting (and most admit that they feel my work is "better" than theirs). It is fun to talk to strangers about knitting but I don't say too much back to make it a real conversation. Think of all the great people and other knitters/potential knitters we could meet if we just speak up.

My dog Carlie seems to be doing really well. She is on some new medication and we are resting her as much as possible and not leaving her loose to chase things in the yard. We are still kinda wait and see I guess but we are going to see how much she continues to improve. Thanks again for the comments of support. Although I know I'm not the only one to ever go through these things it is a nice reminder that I am not alone.
I have spent the last few days finishing of Wicked. The pictures aren't great because I was struggling to keep my batteries hanging on and I couldn't seem to get a great pick of the whole sweater before they finally bit the dust so.
