Just an idea...

I had such grand plans for this blog and well lets just leave it at epic fail shall we?

I love all the videopodcasts that have been popping up all over the place. I've been thinking about doing more of a video blog / videocast for a while now. (I'm naive to think that it would be less work.) I figured that since I grew up Army, was Army and married Army I would do an Army/military theme.

Since I already have the computer and webcam I could technically start anytime but I'm much more inclined to do some research and ask other podcasters questions before diving into the deep end of the podcasting pool. Will keep ya' updated. (Eventually.)

So Freakin Excited!

I'm so freakin excited! (And not just becuase I'm knitting at work.) This coming week I will begoing to the Knittin' in the Mitten retreat in Grand Haven, MI. It will be going on from Nov. 2-6 at a wonderful lodge. I will be able to surround myself with people understand my knitting and crochet obsession.

I will be posting pictures from the retreat or shortly after. (Famous last words)

Drop it like it's hot

So this is my first attempt at drop spindling. I loved doing it and isn't that all that matters at first?

Etsy ate my bank account

OK maybe Etsy didn't litteraly eat my account but figuratively it took a big chunk out of it. My credit card is waiving the white flag and screaming at me thanks to enablers like Heather at Highland Handmades and Intention Yarns, Scary Mary, sby4718 and RiverStation I just couldn't resist. Pictures will follow of course as soon as the arrive in my hot little hands. Please check out their shops they have great and amazing stuff.
