Woah! I forgot about this blog. Wow. I'm a bad blog-parent.

I so enjoy reading all the other blogs in the knitting world it's only fair that I update mine. It's a big unorignal but oh well :-D

I'm working on Knitty's Kate for my daughter. This took me about 4 hours last night, super fast!! I ended up knitting her flat because I hate working in the round unless i'm making a hat. She sort of looks like a one-armed weeble right now but that'll change tonight hopefully.

My 19 month old has a cold thus why the heck i'm up this early! I had her in bed with me last night because she refused to stay in her crib longer than an hour. I don't blame her, that's nothing better than a cuddle when one is feeling under the weather.

My son is going to be 5 on the 13th of the month. Oy. When did all this time fast?

Womp womp womp

We're back, California is lovely there are parts that really remind me of central PA. We had a good time at legoland, sea world, and coronado island!! I posted some pics on my flickr account.

I got my final package from my SP8! I didn't take pics before I put it all away in my after vacation cleaning psychosis. We loved everything though :-) (we being the kids and I). I posted a message on your blog in case you didn't see it before GO READ IT!! You were a great SP :-)

I'm debating to join SP9 or not. I guess i should go over to the SP9 blog to help me figure that out..i'm moving in Dec and I think that's during the exchange so that might be bad. Don't know.

I'm still not allowed to knit though i'm really starting to get twitchy about hands still hurt a good bit by the end of the day no thanks to having two small children to take care of.

haven't gotten my test results back yet i'm stalling...i swear i'll go tomorrow though..or monday...

I'm having a lot of health issues. I'm waiting for test results to come back for several moderately scary things. In light of this I freaked out/broke down/whatever you want to call it. Hubby is off of work for two weeks to take care of me and the children so we decided to go somewhere, no use staying in this house waiting for phone calls and driving one another crazy.

so we're heading to the beach, san Diego. We're taking the kids to sea world and legoland, staying at a resort, and generally just relaxing.

be back Saturday.

no knitting for me for the next two weeks.

apparently i have carpal tunnel and really shouldn't be typing either but...i mean i gotta do something!? i'm wearing this awful little wrist supports that are slowing cutting off the blood flow to my fingers. I need to go sit down with some ice on these wrists for at least 30 minutes. argh.

it's been raining here for two days. I thought i lived in the desert?

I knitted something new for my shop but I need the sunlight to get good pics of it so hopefully tomorrow i'll have something to show and be able to actually add it to the shop.

also i've been having this odd pain shoot up my fingers on my right hand it's so strange. it's like a charlie horse in my finger!?
