What's on the needles

Well, I've not fallen off the face of the earth - almost, but not just yet. I've been trying to knit thru the stash for some time now and at first decided to tackle big projects first, just to make a dent in the pile of yarn...but other projects call my name.. Here is what I am currently working on.. keeping in mind that socks never count - ie buying sock yarn is not adding to stash, knitting socks is not included in having "too many" projects on the needles..

Ok, Blogger is being really stupid, not loading pictures and I don't have time to wait.. Off to Knit Night. I'll post later.. but I am working on Lion Brand's Tree of Life Afgan, lots of errors in the pattern, which pisses me off...had to rip out about 4" of lace in the dress I am makin for The Girl Child..Interweave Knits, can't recall which issue.. and bum gloves for a friend. pattern is giving me fits: sl2tog, k1, psso - really? Why can't i remember how i did that.. pass what stitchover?? I don't understand. RANT RANT RANT, STOMPING FOOT..

Freedom Isn't Free

The 4th of July is not about BBQs or picnics or's about freedom - and it's not free. So tomorrow, as you eat your burgers and ribs and whatnot - be sure to thank a soldier for your freedom - not everyone gets to celebrate this weekend with family and friends...
