Marking Time

I am currently making the cutest damn stitch markers in the world. I would give a body part to have a camera so I could show you just how cute they really are! I mean it! You would happily give me lots of money so I could make some for you. Never fear! I have a cunning plan. I have Mother's Day and a birthday coming up. Should I be fortunate enough to score some cash, the plan is to buy a digital camera. I'll backtrack and take pictures of stuff. It'll be Picturepalooza on this blog. Especially when the stitch markers make their debut. (I'm certain that they'll be even cuter then!)

Gotta give credit where credit is due. I got the directions from this blog:http://chrisknits.blog-city.com/read/1138307.htm Super directions and it was just so cool that she posted those directions. I'm a major visual learner and the pictures are just a godsend.

So I have beaucoup stitch markers. Now I need a project big enough to use all of them.

Not much

Not much knitting went on this weekend. I attended a mini-conference all day Friday and manage to get most of a scarf finished for the Dulaan Project. Check them out here: http://www.fireprojects.org/dulaan.htm I finished up the scarf once I got home and started another one Sunday evening. I'm taking a break from Baby's dress, but I don't want to take too much of a break. Babies grow so quickly that it might not fit her by the time I'm finished.

Actually, knitting during a meeting says more about the meeting than anything. This chick was just boring! She read her overheads to us and I just hate that. I can read! I'm pushing 40 and I'm pretty confident that I can read! So I knit under the table, glancing up every once in awhile to look at the overhead...which was exactly what I had in front of me in the form of a handout.

I started running this weekend. I've run off and on for awhile now, but now it's different. I want Baby Boogie to see that her mom is in shape and takes care of herself. I jus want to set a positive example for her. Also, running is "me" time and it helps with stress. I anticipate a bit of stress as I head for my new job in June.

Speaking of jobs, I'm blogging at work so I'm going to cut this short.
