Well some things at least have been getting done

Hello! Here at Casa de Tabor things have been rather hectic this past week. Lots of cleaning and re-cleaning as Matthew brings home is junk from the field and messes up the place. Alas. :)

I started another pair of monkey socks this time in Wollmeise-the colorway being Suzanne that my friend pquetsch sent me from a blog contest. The picture doesn't really do the color justice but once I finish both (I'm halfway through the 1st) Ill make sure to show them off in grand style.

And speaking of Wollmeise, Sheri from The Loopy Ewe sent me a skein of Krauterbeet For being the 1500th post on :) The woman is beyond Generous so go buy yarn from her. She rocks.
It was on my wish list on her website and that was the one she sent me! The purple and green is gorgeous!

And then because I'm a sucker and such I plunked down $60.00 for a skein of chasmere from Noro that i'll make a scarf out of...Never you mind that we are out of scarf weather. Sigh. but it's pretty.

There isn't great lighting right now in the apartment so all the pictures are less than desirable. But I'm sure I'll manage. Have a great day!

Happy St. pattys Day!

I finished socks! I finished a Project!


They are a wee bit big but that is ok! And lookie what I got in the Mail today from The Loopy Ewe:


My new namaste clutch is HUGE as well as my two skeins of Wollmeise I stayed up all night for. :) See? huge!

But I love it. And the hubby got home SUPER EARLY from work today so we are off to spend some quality time together! Yea!

Bits and Pieces

Hello! I've been having a fun time on the Ravelry Loopy Ewe boards this past week waiting for the Wollmeise sneakup (I scored 2 skeins!) an dmade some lovely friends. I knit a bit. And there is nothing else my husband and I like to do than to harass our cats:




But it's just our brand of love. :D :D Here are the socks I've been working on-I'm about to turn the heel on the 2nd.

And here is a picture we bought at the swap meet that hangs in our bedroom:

OH! And guess who's Loopy Ewe Swap Package came in? MINE! Tee hee Inside was a skein of Cherry Tree Hill, Loopy Kisses, Soap (in the shape of loopy kisses) the cute project bag and a pattern. :)

Feeling the Blah's

I've done some knitting. But not a whole lot. I have pictures to share, but I've not up-loaded them from my camera and edited them. Matthew and I were supposed to go on a Marriage Retreat via the marines but we got DENIED because it was FULL-he turned it in to late. Never mind the fact that they wouldn't let him turn in the info all last week and when he'd manage to GET to the freaking office, NO ONE WAS THERE!!!! So we don't get to go and we are probably one of the ones who actually need it. There are a few nice people in the military but honest to god, the f-ing assholes out number them.

I've knit one sock in plain st-st and am just so underwhelmed about doing the 2nd one. My secret of the stole still needs me to rip back 8 rows but I can't really face that right now. I've had no movotiation to do anything creative lately and it's bumming me out.

And his stupid cat just horked up two hairballs on my *$#^%(&^@* white carpet.

And then...

My cat snores in his sleep. HAHAHAHAHAHHA. rock.

(No, no knitting has been done. Why do you ask?)

P.S. My living room is full of lumber. Mathew decided it would be better to build cat perches than buy them.

Wedding Pictures!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! The baskets have been *such* alife saver (as well as the hutch! I LOOOOOVE IT!) in terms of keeping things organized and easy to clean. I got those at TJ Maxx (feel free to steal the idea). The bathroom hutch is from bed Bath and beyond(Kind of like THIS ONE but the legs on mine are knobbed).

And now....



More later!
