Did You Know...

That snow can make noise?

I don't like it. It sounds like rain...only colder.

And it's supposed to be spring.

Rainy Saturday

After working a full week (and no. I'm not used to it yet.) I finally get a chance to knit.

I finished another "tit bit" for Kelly this morning...now she has 2! *grin*

I'm determined to get my ocean socks finished before we leave at the end of the month.

I've got laundry in the washer and 2 movies. I'm good to go.

Accomplishments of the Day

I managed to tame a few of my messier messes.

And get started on a new knitting project.

This is the Triangular Shawl designed by Jeanne Schrader of Knitting Addiction in the Outer Banks.

Can't wait to see her and her new shop in April!


Before I can play with ANY of my fun projects I need to do a little neglected cleaning. Since I started working I have not maintained my sanctuary. So, Brave is in the DVD player and here are my problem areas...

Look What I Found!!

A quick trip to Goodwill...and SCORE!

It's a "Sears Kenmore".
Model 1410.
Made in Japan.
Heavy as all get-out.

So far it sounds good, runs smooth, sews a straight stitch...but boy, does she smell bad.

I will be taking her in for a little spa treatment, unless I'm able to get to the underside. Right now I can't get her lifted out. It might be that I just need another pair of hands.

I was a little nervous about paying $30 but after a few quick stitches I can honestly say that I'm happy I did.
