Happy Blogaversary to Me!

Well, it's been a year since I started blogging. Not much better at it than I was a year ago, but I'm enjoying it when I have time to write something. So, happy anniversary to Scrappy Knitter!

Today is also my father's birthday. So, happy birthday!

This is my new chair. I just love it! It's a LazyBoy rocker recliner and small enough to fit in the room and comfie enough to get lots of knitting done. The green dresser you see next to it is my knitting table and holds all my needles and knitting stuff in the 3 drawers.

I've been doing lots of knitting, and lots of unknitting. I still wasn't able to get gauge for the Many Buttoned Vest in Folk Vests and after doing several inches ripped it out. It was huge. I was up to a size 10 needle with the K1C2 yarn and it still was off by a 1/2 stitch. Now I'm workingon the Samas sweater from Knitty but it's going slow with the long cable that goes around the bottom. I've also been working on the Jaywalker socks and I love that pattern, just like everyone else that's working on it. I'm done the first sock and about 3/4 done the second sock. I'm not one to make socks, never liked all that round and round knitting, but I've decided my problem is boredom. If the stitch gets old real quick then I get bored with it. Jaywalker is fun, just seeing how the stitches will fall with the variegated yarn. So, maybe a finished PAIR of socks soon.

Heading to the big city tomorrow to hear our Baby Girl play in the All State Band Concert. She's been there since yesterday morning and having a great time but the poor thing, she's not feeling too well. Some virus is going around and my oldest grand daughter had it last week and of course the Baby Girl went to visit them last weekend, sooooo! Now that same grand daughter was diagnosed with Mono today, so she's out of commission for a month! Half days of school only till the end of March. Jeesh, when it rains it pours!

Happy knitting and to all you olympic knitters out there, I'm cheering you on to the finish line.
