Well, it looks like Atlanta may be a no go. My mom has bronchitos and walking pneumonia. Fun. I am spending the night with my best friend Erin so I may be going to a new church with her. I really don't want to leave my new friend Kylie alone with Miranda though. You never knw. I may end up at Grace. I registered for school and discovered that Xan and Ruthie, the two people I hate the most right now, aren't in any of my classes!!!! Hip hip hooray!!!!!! I think I have SSS (Seconded Sock Syndrome). I really don't want to work on the seconded sock. I think I will make myself do two inches a night until I finish. I am making a felted clutch from the book One Skein by Leigh Radford for my secret pal. I am doing it in Landscapes. It is really pretty. I have to finish my hat today for Sara Deihl's birthday party Tuesday. I think she will like it.

I finished my first sock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is really ugly but I like it. I have also started a hat from the book Kids Knitting. It is turning out pretty good. I am using up some old scraps of pink, yellow, orange, and purple. I like it so far. It is probably going to end up at a charity. I think some little girl will enjoy it. Still no luck with the camera. I asm hoping to get it fixed soon. We are going to Atlanta Friday so I should get some cute pics of my knitting in progress. GTG!!

Hello everyone, you can call me Madame Knits-A-Lot! lol. I finished a pair of red and pink crocehted mittens a few days ago along with Catherine's Christams present. It is a hat from the book Kids Knitting. The author is Melanie Falick. I am now working on a wallet to use up scrap yarn from the same book. I have to register for school this Tuesday. I will finally get to see my two best friends Lindsey and Maegan. Shout out to them!!!! I am working on a bias scarf from the Knit It holiday 2005 magazine. I am using some old junky yarn on seventeen's. I made the stupid mistake of leaving my computer at my aunt's house which is why I haven't been posting as much. My dad is fixing my camera so you may be able to actually see pictures of the projects I am working on!! Bye for now!!

My camera hates me. Seriously. It hates me. I have yet to figure out what is wrong with it. Time to call in my dad. lol. I am busily working on the crazy catterpillar from Kids Knitting by Melane Falick for my cousin Michael. Is it sad that I still don't know how to spell his name? The catterpillar is red, blue, yellow, and black for the in between stripes. It is turning out very cute if I do say so myself. Last Wendsday Audrey and Michelle came over to swim. I spent most of my time in the shallow end with Adurey. When I would do a flip off the diving board I would come up out of the water and hear Audrey saying, "Sarah, you okay?" It was soo cute!!! I finished crocheting one pair of mittens. They are orange with purple Tutu form Moda Dea around the bottom and flowers! I used Bevs Marvelous Mitten Pattern. I am making a pair in cream with Moda Dea WILD! in Denim. They are pretty cute. I am baby sitting two kids Saturday night. I think they are 6 and 2. Something around there. They are very sweet! I can't wait. I need to go finish my catterpillar!

Happy B'day Eric!!! Yesterday afternoon my mom, sister, and I went to Michaels!!! They finally got the size 50's from Lion Brand in!! I bought a pair and last night I made the One-Hour Pom-Pom Wrap! It is soooo cute! I did it in blue and white so I can wear it to school. It is my school colors. I got a wonderful idea to sew up the sides and make it a shrug. I will do that on the next one. Sorry bout the short post!

Well, my great-grandfather died on the 4th of July. My sister and I went down with my parents for the funeral. I am trying to decide if crying 4 times in one week should be considered normal for an awful week. I got to see my cousins and uncle for the first time in a year or so. They came to stay with us for a couple of days. I was so mad that my mom wouldn't let me watch Law and Order SVU because it freaks my sister out. I was like, this is sooo not fair. I ended up getting stuck watching The Suite Life of Zach and Cody and That's So Raven. In the mornings I had to watch the Backyardigans. Doesn't that sound fun! I started a Branching Out scarf in Caron Simply Soft light blue on size 6 needles. I have finished 16 pattern repeats. It is lookly soooo good. I think I will give that one to my aunt for Christmas. She may end up getting the white scarf that she said she likes a lot. I have already finished Mary Margaret and Phillip's presents. Mary Margaret is getting the hot pink and light pink headbands I finished a few weeks ago and Phillip is getting a brown cable scarf. DaddyBill is getting better. The docters have confirmed that he has cancer. I suppose I will hope for the best. He will hopefully be fine. My best friend Erin is sitting here confusing me. Something about how when friends are talking about something they can get off into whole new subjects. There she goes again. I should probably go get back to work on my Branching Out scarf. Bye!!

All day I heard Bad Day by Daniel Powter going in my head. My grandfather is okay I guess but Daddy preached about it today. I heard stuff that had been guarded from me. I cried a few tears. At lunch with my aunt we got a phone call that said my great-grandfather is really really not doing well. My aun't cell phone rings. She is gone from the table a few minutes and comes back crying. My sister and I am sent to wait in the Olivie Garder waiting area for a little while. We leave. On the way home I cry. In front of my sister. I hate crying in front of her. Then I allow myself to lay around on the couch and talk to my BFF who is moving in a week all day about setting up a guy that asked me out with someone we know likes him. We can't wait!! I take a nice long hat bubble bath then get my dad to talk like Chip and Dale!! It was so funny. Then Dale got Larry and Gitis. lol. I casted on for a new baby hat and bootie set. Not much else done today. Please pray for my grandfathers. Please.

Last night my parents came home with "surprises"!! Can you guess what I got? Yarn!!!!!!!! It is Bernat Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes in the green color. My mom got it so I could knit the baby blanket on the yarn label. She said that she wanted to see if me work with the yarn. I just asked myself how I get roped into this stuff! lol. Anyway, I asked her who I should give this to, considering I have no reason to keep it. She got the idea that I should give it to Eric and Michelle when they ever have another baby, for Baby Green!! (Eric, Michelle, and Audrey Green) LOL! I have gotten a couple inches done on it and it is very very cute. Happy early Independence Day by the way!! I may not get back to you until after 4th of July by the way. My Aunt Laurel is coming today and has to stay in my room. I get the mattress in the playroom right in front of the t.v. I figure that I can get in some serious SVU watchings! LOL!!!
