knitting,fast food and shopping in florida

               brown-bag.jpg

in case you think I have been doing nothing but sitting on the beach- I have actually done quite a bit of knitting- new bag 1st sample, new blue heron cardigan (more later),moose dog collar almost needlepointed. However, I have actually done alot more SHOPPING! God, it is amazing…..

most ridiculous American fast food I’ve seen so far- frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Costco.but before you pronounce this the absolute epitome of laziness, consider that the crusts are off, the edges are crimped so the stuff doesn’t drip out and they do defrost quite nicely on the beach…. Actually, I am quite fond of fast food and have discovered Checkers which does sublime french fries( excuse me, chips) for about 50 cents. have not made it to Krispy Kreme yet….

now you know a secret about me

so every morning after my nice husband brings me coffee I turn on the computer and the next thing I know its 11-am not  pm (thou’ somtimes it feels like it is) a year ago I got in the habit of staying in the bedroom to work as the construction noise from downstairs was so bad – so some days I am still in my pj’s!! gasp-

so is the computer a major time suck??//-what am i @working@on? here’s the list-ravelry pattern additions, photo resizing,flickr uploads, trying to figure out this blog stuff(too much time reading lorelle and forums on technical advice,google site stuff( a good couple of hours with no result), also need to source new needlepoint cuz if I don’t do it this winter it won’t get done, researching blackberry stuff in an effort to increase my productivity(snort…) the list of time suckers goes on

other things I’ve been doing- teaching,trying to finish cardigan, knitting hearts(don’t ask ), working on moose- the debonnaire cavalier’s-dog collar which is a prototype for my new belt finisher to leather up,3 new designs sketching out

and I have a family somewhere…

the weather’s been so nice that I really want to play golf- but that will have to wait for florida…..

and guess what, it’s 11:30.

PIP(pattern in progress) finished-

Managed to finished the easy tunic pattern finally-it’s printed ( a new  long timer record(4months later).tunic This would be a good first sweater.It’s a very easy knit and appeals across age groups(I wear it, my 20 year old wears it).A more advanced knitter would want to add short rows in collar and refine arm shaping.Pictured in debonnaire soft spun, but doable in any dk yarn.tunic back

the sun is bigger in suffolk
