I'm Sorry, I'm Sorry, I'm Sorry!

It has been so long and I am so sorry about it! I was at the beach and I have been busy with school and everything. I have been stressed but I have tried to take some time to relax and it has been doing me good. My school is having a weather day Friday, which is also the day I am leaving for the beach for a church retreat. I did finish the baby sweater and it came out so cute! It also used up three skeins of yarn. I sewed on the buttons the day before I gave it to Margie!

I have found that I can knit a hat a day at school if it is for a preemie. I can knit in between note taking in three classes, and at lunch study and choir! I have made two in two days. They are so cute!

Two weeks ago I got to go to the beach. I think I mentioned it. Anyway, baby-sitting the triplets wasn't bad. It was the last night we were there so they were so so so tired. They went to sleep right away. I hardly knit the whole time we were there. I read two books and played and got a semi-tan. I still looked pretty good for March.

I am still on the first footie for Mr.Bud. It is pitiful. I am taking it on the bus this weekend to work on while we are going to Florida for camp. I should be able to finish the pair since it is a five hour drive on the way there and the way back. And you can add in free time and small group. I am taking my camera so expect pictures!

Today I was catching up on my tivoed 7th Heaven episodes and I cried and cried over a TV show! It was so sad. Eric is going to die!!!!! i was crying and my mom walked in and she was like,"What is the matter with you?", so I told her and she laughed at me!!!! I was mad.

Last Minute Knitted Gifts KAL Started!

I have officially started the Last Minute Knitted Gifts KAL!!!! Yay!

OMG! I am having to knit a sweater for a one year old by Thursday!!!!!!! EEEKKKKKK!!!! I am using the Child's Placket Sweater pattern from the book Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It is goign very quickly since that is all I am working on as of right now. I still have a lot on the needles, but the only thing I am working on is the sweater. Today, I knit the entire body and one sleeve and have started the second sleeve. I also discovered that I can't do seed stitch in the round without paying attention! lol. I had to take out two rounds of the cuff earlier.

This weekend my family and the Stories, who have five-year-old triplets, are all going to the beach. My sister and I are both being checked out of school to drive down, staying all weekend, and coming home late Monday afternoon. At first I was sooooo excited about this trip! I could knit on the beach, knit in the car, finally finish up some stuff. Then I got in the car today where my mother imformed me of something. We would all be going out to eat two of the nights we were there. Then one of the nights, only the adults were going, and I would have to baby-sit all the kids! (4 total). I had already decided that this vacation was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, where I could get away from the stress of school and friends. Apparently not. Now, not only do I have to share one room with at least one five year old and a ten year old, which pretty much ruins the sleeping late thing, I have to worry about getting Catherine, Michael, and Bryce's teeth brushed, tuck them in, and try and make my sister understand that I am in charge. I see no fun in that. I was hoping for a weekend to relax. Now, I am mad at my mother and have cramps. What a wonderful way to spend a weekend at the beach.

On a happier note, I made an A on all of my exams!!!!! Yay!!!

Hell's Inbox

Hey everybody! I just wanted to pop in and tell you about Hell's Inbox. Eric, Linny, and I have been talking about changing the name from Lace Rox! for quite awhile. (Eric doesn't knit) The content will be the same, the people will be the same, the name is just different.

In other news, Lindsey and Shelby had a fake wedding! (no they are not gay) I was the preacher. It was very funny. I crocehted a ring baers pillow for the ring bear. Yes, I know that is spelled wrong. I haven't posted pictures in awhile so I am going to.

The one on top is me, with my sister Catherine. She is the blonde. The other little girl is my cousin Mary Margaret. The boy is Mary Margaret's brother, Phillip.
The next picture is the "sexy" picture of Patrick.
The last picture is one of Zach that I took in Montgomery.

OMG It's Been So Long!

I am so sorry! I have been knitting so much though! I have knitted hats for Linny's mom, Linny's friend, William, one of my teachers, and one of my teacher's friend!!!! So busy knitting hats!!! Kill me now! Not really. lol. I am now working on another pair of cable footies for a man who goes to my church, Mr.Bud. Mr.Bud rocks. He taught me how to make coffe. As you can see, he is very important. After I knitted my pair of cable footies (pattern found in the book One Skein, Leigh Radfield), Mr.Bud requested a pair. He is going to pay me ten dollars. I have been so busy knitting hats, I haven't had a chance to work on them. Today my school got out at noon because of bad weather so I decided to work on the footies. I have knitted the entire heel flap, and picked up stitches for the heel! YEA!!

Happy early birthday S!!!
