I'm a Knitting Organizer for Langhorne!!!

http://knittinfool.blogspot.comhttp://knitting.meetup.com/606/

Welcome to the new Langhorne Meet Up group! Through a series of odd events, I am now the organizer for our group! This should be fun- not so sure what hubby is thinking about it, but I think it'll be fun! I have one new member, hopefully it will grow from there... I've also been talking to Jamie about writing a book- or should I say she's been talking to me?! Anyway, we both think it would be really cool and I think we're going to go for it! Probably will be a summer project... If I can get this spinning thing down I can write about that too!

Spinning has not spun...

I was so psyched to get my handspinning set! I got all comfy on the couch, read the booklets and book, oooohhhhed and aaaahhhhed over all of it and then started to spin... I broke the yarn about four or five times, it twisted down around itself, and I found out that I really suck at it. So, I will try again- because now it's just the whole challenge thing and I won't let it beat me- but I am so annoyed and frustrated!!! Why can't I do this???!!!! Until I meet the spindle again...

Socks and scarves with cables...

Well, I joined the KR sock-a-thon! Almost done sock #1... Wooohoooo! However, I am so proud to say that I figured out -on my own- a pattern for a striped, cabled scarf!!! Yes, I am proud of myself!!! Took me a bit to figure out the whole cable thing, every so many rows and to keep it going in the same direction, but I did it! Yay!

Jarett and I are in the Northeast times for the Knitting Club we belong to at Michael's. We're the Skein Dames! They also mention my knitting club that I do at school- free publicity, gotta love it!

Forgot about you

Well, here it is January and once again I forgot I have a blog... So, no new pics and nothing else exciting in here... Well, an update, Matt and I are blackbelts now! Bryan started Karate and I made socks!!! I also just found out that I can look at something and figure out a pattern- okay, it was only a cabled striped scarf, but it was the first item I could "read" just by looking at it! So, I will post a pic of it since my blog is dying and I need to get it going. Going to knit now. bye...
