Saturday, January 17, 2009

nope it didn't get finished or frogged. what????

I just couldn't make it happen so it got stuck back into it's jar. Want to finish it today but doggy and me ate some chicken nuggets last night and now we are both sick. He threw up early this morning and I have the runs and a terrible ulcer pain. So took some imodium and a prilosec and just waiting for the pain to go away. got a feeling it's gonna hang around all day. darn it.
can't relax enough to cast on my socks so putting that on hold as well. just not feeling good.

Finishing Friday

Today is Finish or Frog Friday. Every Friday I will post a project that I have either finished or had to frog. I think this is to encourage me to actually finish a project rather than have it laying around forever.

So I have finished the project I was working on for the cloth and one skein swap on my knitting circle group . I'm not going to post a photo of it until my partner gets it. Am mailing it off tomorrow so next week maybe by this time it will be posted.

I also have one dishcloth that I started about a year ago and it's been sitting in my knitting jar for over a year. It's a flower power cloth and I really don't want to frog it so I'm posting that I will have it done before I go to bed tonight so it will legally still be Friday! So I gotta get off here and pull the darn thing out of the jar and get it done!! weeeeeeeeeeeeeee
And tomorrow I cast on for my socks finally. see the blue yarn behind the jar next to the coke zero? That the yarn for my socks.

Another Project Finished

Wow I just finished another project. Can't show you what it looks like until my swap partner (Hi Joy!) gets it. But It turned out real cute. And I turned it inside out instead of how it's suppose to be. So that should get your curiosity up. lol
Ok I'm now trying to finish another ufo before Friday so I can post about it instead of frogging it.
Right now I;m listening to Prez Bush saying Farewell. I can't wait for the 20th to get here so I can watch the inauguration of Prez Obama. I don't remember a President ever jumping in so much before their inauguration before. Have you? I really appreciate all the talks he's had and questions he's asked and all the government participation he's done before he really has to. I foresee a great leader in Obama. and I wish him the very best while in office.
Obama Rules!!!!!

What's Your Blogging Pet Peeve??

Mine is bloggers that don't post for days and days and days. Especially ones that I love to read. I know that other stuff can get in the way of blogging like family and kids and work and responsibilities but what about your responsiblity to your readers????? huh? Loyal readers deserve your commitment to blog often. And to post lots of photos with your posts!

Sometimes I sit here hunting and looking thru all my fave blogs for a post that I haven't read yet and I am really really in need of a new post ya know. Almost like I need my coffee soon as I get up in the morning.

I NEED to see what my friends (at least in my own mind) are up to. I love looking at your kids and grandkids and at all your knit projects or get togethers or even you frogging episodes. I have lots of you I go to every day so if you could just remember that I'm sitting here just waiting for your newest post, I would be really grateful.

Thank you
