Life is Crazy!!

Man, have I been busy!! There is so much to catch up on. I hope all of you are doing well. I'm still here. I've been running around trying to get stuff done. I can't believe that I'm getting married next month. YEAH!!!!! I can't wait. Since I've been away from you guys, I had my final dress fitting. They had to take my dress in, so I was very happy with that. If I could lose 2 to 3 more inches around my waist by the wedding, I'll be even happier. The fi and I picked out the guys tuxes last week.

I started sending out my wedding invitations, and they were a hit. I've been having a problem with getting some of the response cards back. Some of my guests don't want to mess up the invitation, so they've been phoning me with their RSVP. That was funny. I also got 2 requests to help give information on making invitations, and possibly make invites for someone else. I thought that was cool and very nice since half the time I don't know what I'm doing.

I started the Flower Basket Shawl from Interweave Knits Fall 2004. I love it. I'm making it in the yarn that it calls for which is the Misti Lace Baby Alpaca on #7 needles in Black. I wanted the challenge of working from a chart and this pattern so far is living up to my expectations. It's beautiful. I hope to have a picture up soon.

Amanda, I didn't forget about the 6 word post that I have to do. I'm looking for a really good inspirational picture I want to use.

I've been working on a few other things, but I'll give updates later.

I can imagine how busy you are with a wedding just around the corner. Just remember to take a moment to relax.

How exciting to be getting married next month! Congrats on having the dress taken in! Don't be too hard on yourself - 2 or 3 inches on your waist is a lot to expect yourself to lose, especially in a month!

It is always a good day when you are told your wedding dress needs to be taken in! Good luck on those next few inches. It is so funny that people don't want to mess up their rsvp cards! Maybe you can get a little side business going (because, you really need more things to do with your time, I mean, you only have 2 or 3 jobs as it is right?)

That shawl is a pretty one. I can't imagine knitting lace with black yarn- it would kill my eyes. But I love the way it looks. After you get the hang of the chart it is much easier to knit lace with it than with written instructions. My advice is to photocopy it and mark each row off with something you can see through-in case you have to frog- as you knit it.
