6 Episodes of Desparate Housewives Season 1 on DVD brings...

...only 3 inches of turtleneck to an almost 2 month old turtleneck shrug.

Man, I am SUCH a slow knitter. It's not like I stopped knitting because I was so captivated, I was knitting for at least 85% of the time. My goodness. There goes my chances of winning fastest knitter in the world.

I'll have pictures when I finish the shrug. At the rate I am going, I'll be lucky if I'm done by Christmas...



Now for some actual knitting content...

I'm working onthe Turtleneck Shrug from ScarfStyle. This sleeve took me a little over a month to complete:

This one however...

took me 2 days so far, and I'm already a little over half way done. What the heck? What have I been doing for the last month?



Our house is sold! I can't believe how quick...only one week on the market! Now we have the piece of mind and just have to wait for our new house to be finished building. However, the new owners want in before Christmas and our new house isn't ready until perhaps February, so this means that we are going to live with my parents for a couple of months...


1 hour 39 minutes...

to go until my week off! Then to my new job! Yay!

(and there's an offer to buy our house! hopefully that pans through....)

So many life changing events lately...


Last Day

Tomorrow is my last day at my job. I'll have one week off before I start my new job! I signed the offer papers today and boy am I excited! I actually get my own office...

Don't you just love day after Halloween sales?

Oh and please excuse Daisey. For some reason she anticipates the flash on the camera and always squints. She's squinty girl. I have such a hard time getting a clear picture of her not squinting.


Movie Mania!

So I've been interested in doing a Movie Meme just to see how many movies I've seen comparitive to the list that people are using for this meme. Apparently, 70 movies from this list means you are out of control...

Sweet Skills

Numchuk skills, hacking skills, drawing skills, but especially....
Pumpkin Carving Skills
We attended the Third Annual Pumpkin Carving Potluck hosted by TD and BH on Saturday. There was great food, greater company and GIANT pumpkins. This Napoleon Dynamite pumpkin was HUGE! I could fit my head in the hole I cut out in the top. I think someone took a picture too...
A Hards Day's Work Getting Out the Pumpkin Guts
A great jorb done by all. I was interested to see how many of the kids would recognize who the pumpkin was carved as. Too bad I couldn't find any candles to put in the pumpkins until the last 20 minutes of trick or treating open house...
Everyones hard work pays off!
