Sorry for the Silence.

Sorry, I haven't posted for awhile.  I'm been running around like a nutcase.  Angie had 3 meets this week, there was a booster meeting, I ended up working a bunch of extra hours at work - why take vacation if you have to put in crazy hours before and after?  Friday we went into NYC - more about that tomorrow,  There are 2 huge state wide tournaments one for boys, one for girls this weekend.  You get the picture - in between, I did have lunch with my friend Grace, had dinner out with "my boys"  and there is the never ending laundry, grocery shopping, keeping the house civilized ( no Grace our tree is still up)  ACCKKKKKK!

I have gotten a bunch of knitting in in this new year though.  I'm halfway done with my 2nd red & white snowflake mitt.  I put that aside temporarily, because all of the sudden my January knitting filled up!  I had joined  a KAL ( knit a long) .  It's a mystery shawlette with beads, by the same designer as my Autumn and Dumpling bags.  I've never done knitting with beads before, so I sucked Grace into the project and ordered my kit.  The knit a long starts on Jan 17th, so still no problem.   I have my dishcloth of the month group - I finished that earlier in the week ( no pics until the recipient gets it though).  I then signed up for a valentines day swap, It has to be mailed out by the end of the month.  OK, that's cool.  Then I decided to join the january Hat trick in my hockey group.  Still ok, I have 2 hats done ( and my first pom pom ever) and one more to do.  Then Grace has a swap on her blog.  I can do this so I signed up.  Everything was still ok.

Then last week, a at this point secret emergency came up, requiring a couple items to be knit up fast.  ANd I started getting nervous.  That's why I haven't been blogging much this week. 

My first pom - pom!

Earflap hat in 49er colors

Roll Brim hat with Super Chunky yarn!

So to recap.  1 1/2 gloves done - on hold until other projects are complete.
                    dishcloth swap - done, will mail tomorrow - no pics until received
                    hat trick - 2 hats done, 1 to go by 1.31
                    emergency projects - done, mailing out tomorrow
                    valentines swap -casting on (starting) tomorrow
                    grace's swap - haven't got a partner yet
                    Shawl KAL - haven't got kit yet, starts on 1.17

I am hoping to finish the 2 swaps by Friday.  Then if I work on the hat at lunch at work, and the shawl at home ( don't want to be dragging beads around)  I can work on my mitts, at Angie's meets the last 2 weeks of the month!
