Home Sweet Home

I feel as though I have been moving non-stop for the last few days. Monday Hubby and I went snowboarding, Tuesday and Wednesday we were at the Magic Kingdom. Finally we are home. There is so much that I need to do. There is so much that I want to do. But I really just want to be lazy today.

The thing that I have difficulties with is deciphering the difference between the needs and wants. Need things to me usually mean the household type of things laundry, cleaning, etc, while the wants are things like knitting, exercise. Though, knitting and exercise are things that I actually think I need to do. I'll just rephrase the earlier statement.

There are so many things that I need to do.

While we were away, I finished K's socks. I was working on them in the car ride down when Hubby realized that I was a little frustrated. He looked at me as though I was crazy and then asked what was wrong.
I had to explain that while I was knitting I came across not one, but two knots within two yards of each other.

That's right there were two knots where the yarn was joined within two yards of one another. Here is a closer view.

I understand that there are going to be knots in the yarn, but for there to be two so within the same skein and so close to one another. It's just frustrating.

Having finished K's socks, I think I am finally ready to start on a bigger project. I signed up for this KAL a while back.

I swatched for the sweater, but I didn't have the inspiration to actually knit a sweater. I really didn't know what I wanted. I think I am going to do a cowl of some sort. We will just have to see. I just realized that the button I had on the sidebar is no longer there, WTF!?!?!

I guess I'll just have to fix it if blogger lets me.

The socks are looking fantastic. I can't wait to see them done. I've been adding (quickly) to my sock yarn and will have all of Wisconsin neatly footed in 2007!!!

Needs and wants . .. is there a difference??? Haven't figured that out yet in almost 34 years!!! =)

Your side bar is fine. Blogger does funny things depending on the computer from which you're surfing.
