lurkers coming out of the woodwork

AhHa! you lurker, you. :)

On the previous post, there's currently one comment, and I know who posted it. But hey, yeah, I'm up for a trip to the Yarn Barn in Lawrence :D

Last night at knitting was good, relaxing. I really enjoy the evenings when everybody is discussing the same things...my apologies to the other knitters, I didn't mean to rant on the subject of soybeans. But the cool part, was that I wasn't the only one that had ideas about slightly non-mainstream dietary practices (is that a sufficiently polite way to say we're all weird in our own special ways? i sincerely do no want to offend). And it was a good evening. Thanks guys!

I haven't did a lot of knitting lately. Busy with the little ones, stuff like that. But I have decided what to do with my Lacey Lamb laceweight yarn. I printed off Eunny Jang's Print O'the Wave scarf, and I'm planning to cast on for that soon.

One project I have been working on is tidying up my craft room. It has had all sorts of stuff stored in there since we moved in, and I have a lot of craft supplies. Little G and Little J help me (sort of!) and we have a ton of fun. I'm finding things I forgot I had, which is a pleasant surprise. I've broken down the two large cardboard boxes that I was using as tables, and it looks much neater. The next step, is to take out the large appliance boxes that I was saving in case i needed a lot of cardboard for a craft project. Oh, and I have a stack of incomplete sewing projects, too. There's a skirt for Little Sister, two dresses for Little G, a skirt and a dress, and two blouses for me. Hopefully, I can get those projects finished up before we move.

Oh! and on the knitting related front, the new KnitPick magazine was in the mail yesterday. It's focus is kid's patterns and toys this time. One of the books they showcased, was by Lucinda Guy. I've seen her patterns before, and they are lovely whimsical things, and it seems she has a new book out. how kewl is that? I may have to order the new book, i think.

Yeah soy is BAD news. Especially all the processed soy, byproducts, and whatnots.

Lucinda Guy's books are really cute. I have the good night one. (Can't think of the name at the moment.)

I saw some horrible bromance (movie about guy friendships), and the actor who plays Riley from the National Treasure series was in it. He had the best line EVER: "It's poison, like margarine."

I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself. The best part was the rest of the audience giving me a blank look as if I'd lost my mind!
