Need another needle …

Is it me or is the needle going in the wrong direction?

Is it me or is the needle going in the wrong direction?

As you can see I was happily knitting along when I noticed I have a broken join in my needle.  So I had to switch out needles.  Thankfully I am using a #7 and I have about 4 pairs.  But now I need to send it back to Knit Picks and hope that they will just exchange the thing without too much of a fuss. 

On a good note the blanket is moving along nicely.  I think I am about half way done with the squares.  Well I am off to contue on the blanket.

Have a great weekend!

After the storm

We survived Hanna last night.  Although we lost power sometime around 2-3am.  We took a little survalance trip and learnd this is the reason for no power.










But the electic company was out working early and had the power back on but 11am.  So that was not too bad.


One of my neighbors has a street blower and he is out after every storm and cleans all the pine needles and we have a TON of pines around us.  So now that Hanna has passed we shall see what Ike’s path is going to be.

Say goodbye to 2007

With 2007 rapidly drawing to a close, it is time to reflect on the past year.  To ask yourself if 2007 lived up to your expectations and make resolutions that may or may not be kept for 2008. 

So with that said: 2007 was a good year (for the most part) 2008 is going to be better …  Good Luck in ’08!!

Happy Monday

I feel like it has been SO long since I posted but really its only been a week … I have been working on my tank, its has been slow … but its comming along. 

pofm2_2.jpg I joined another group its the Project of the Month KAL.  The project for this month is a dishcloth … the Tulip Bud Garter, so I found so nice blue cotton (band is gone so I don’t know the color) and I am going to start on it today. I want it a little smaller so I am going to use size 6 needles instead of 7’s.


Yesterday we went to the beach for the first time in like 6 months, i do miss going to the beach. Because of the storm that came through yesterday it was SO windy and the sand was flying around like crazy … I was able to get a picture.  The surf was something else … but you will have to wait till Wednesday for a pic of the surf.  🙂

 Have a great week!! 🙂
