1. I finished ONE of the NEBs! Yea!! Pics later. It actually looks pretty good. Wow.

2. Is it only me that finds the 'fill in these letters to make a comment' thing on blogger comments waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay annoying? I know why they are there and all... but wow very annoying.

What was I thinking...
I started two baby blankets. Forever to be known as NEBs. Just what is a NEB you ask? Thank you for asking... A NEB is a Never Ending Blanket! OMG the more I knit the longer they get but the end seems just as far away! HELP!!

You know... I think I am also going to make NEB generic... How about NEP. Never Ending Project! :-)

On that note. I may be taking a small mini-vacation. Anyone know any patterns for any socks that is good for first time socksers? Hep Hep! Though perhaps I should just take 2 scarves and start the Xmas stuff.... ::ponders::

OK must be better about blogging here. Esh I know that I have been having an interesting summer... sort of. :-) But no excuse right?

On the knitting front, it seems at least 1/2 of the Monday Night Knitting group is either pregnant or JUST had babies... So loads and loads of baby things have been OTK. I've knit up about 3 sets of some cute booties from the Spring/Summer "Simply Knitting."

I've also been doing a very simple baby blanket knit from one of the corners out.

Still working on my Harry Potter Scarf... It shouldn't be a Harry Potter Scarf it should be a Charlie and the Choclate Factory Scarf because I think it is a relative of the never ending gobstoppers!


Should have some pictures up on the blog tomorrow.

I did join the MS3 but haven't cast on and probably won't for a while... but I wanted in on the action along with 4 zillion other crazy knitters out there.
