Designing News & Dream KAL

You don't know how happy I am right now. I finally got my DSL up and running!!!!!!!!

Great News!!! One of my designs, Apple of Our Eye is the pattern of the month over at Rosie's Yarn Cellar!!! Please check it out. For every kit purchased, they are making a donation to the Global Fund for Aids.

I also joined the Dream KAL over at Sistah Friends Knit. I am knitting Design 418 from Gedifra Highlights 023 in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk.

So far I have the back and the left front done. I casted on the right front last night. I'm hoping to get alot done this weekend, but we'll see. You know how it is, everyday life may interrupt my progress.

Happy New Year

2007!! I can't believe it's here already. A new year to me means new beginnings, a clean slate, starting over. That's a challenge I'm definitely up to. I actually already started. I made split pea soup for the first time. It was a keeper. The next thing I want to make is homemade bread. If anyone has a really good recipe, please let me know.

I hope everyone had a pretty good holiday. Mine was't too shabby. Homemade gifts were all the rage, and well received I might add. I made this:
and this:

My fiance gave me Knitting for Dogs and Paul Deen's Kitchen Classics . I can't wait to make matching sweaters for the boys, and I love Ms. Butter (my nickname for Paula). I can't wait till I have a little more time. I am going to be all over these books. I made her corn casserole and pumkin pie for Thanksgiving.

I want to thank Erica B. for giving me the motivation to start sewing again. It's something that I use to do, and I am finding that I still love it. I'm working on a pair of pants right now for this Spring. I'm still knitting, but don't have anything productive to show right now.

I wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year filled with all the things that they hope for and lots of roving, yarn and material.

Blessings to all. Happy New Year!!
