Happy Blogoversary to me!

Happy Blogoversary to Me! Happy Blogoversary to Me! Happy Blogoversary to Me-e, Happy Blogoversary to Me!

Wow I don't believe that it's been 1 year since I started blogging. I've started other blogs and let them go, but I've been pretty consistent with posting regularly with this one, so congrats to me! As far as knitting go I'm done with my second jaywalker and just need to kitchener the toe closed. This means I can cast on for another pair of socks...yeah. I'm gonna use the left over sock yarn from making my hunny's socks and make a short pair of plain socks for me. I like hand knit socks alot but yarn is expensive so stash hunting for these it shall be. I have also managed to almost finish the back of the trellis baby sweater that I started way back in May. All that is left to finish is the collar shaping and the back is done. When I showed it to my grandmother and my mother both of them said that they wanted a cardigan just like it in their size. I told them if they bought the yarn I'd make it for we will see what comes of that.

I really don't have time to blog, I've been seriously trying to finish my Master's essay. I have 31 pages written and have already got it back from my professor with the first round of edits. I've corrected all the grammar errors and added my references page and now have to add a few pieces of information that my professor thinks will be useful. I have to have the final paper turned in by Nov 28 in order for me to graduate in December, so I will be working on the additional info tonight and throughout the weekend so i can turn another copy into my professor by Monday.

Besides that everything is going well, hope all is well with you.

Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes for my step dad, his surgury went just fine, my g-pa also had surgury and he is doing fine. My mom lost her god-mom yesterday, and while it was sort of expected (she was waiting on a heart)...death never is really goes over well....just one of those things in life.

I've decided that i need a new beret for the fall, since it's already freakin' cold here in MI, so I think a brown beret will help welcome fall on back. I'm still working on the jaywalkers, i've got a long foot and so it's taking a while.

I also finished reading book 5 in the harry potter books and have started book 6, i'm already on page 72.

I need to find either a new job that pays more or a part time gig.....but then again who doesn't in the rough economic times.

hope everyone has a good monday!
