I guess I'm not much of a blogger when I'm working full time. I'd much rather knit, then blog about it - lol.
There has been a significant change in my life. We got a dog! Opie is a white & brindle Olde English Bulldogge - we got him at 11.5 weeks old and he weighed 22 lbs. He has brought joy, laughter and fun into our home ♥ and we all love him dearly.
This is our first day getting to know each other. ♥
He is now 8 months old. He's is the best people person dog, but not-so-much friendly with other dogs. So, we are also doing obedience school. Next wednesday is our last class, and I think we'll sign up for the next session also. it's not terribly expensive, and it get's us out learning with other doggies, so it's good for my Opie.
This is Opie now, laying on his pillow on the couch, living the good life! lol
Work is going very well - I support 4 different areas in my team, so my job is always fresh and interesting, and we are working on a new concept right now for our next campaign.
Knitting is going very well also. I really have to update the side bar, as all of those projects were done eons ago!! (I'm wearing my catkin right now!) I've become a Wollmeise junky, and absolutely love the FO's that I've made with this yarn.
Just a couple pics of my projects:
and am working on my very first Herbert Niebling and although I'm finding the pattern to be a bit difficult, I'm loving it! It is SO elaborate and will be stunning.
Helene (Joy is actually the name written on my pattern)
It's the ending of summer... work is really ramping up with one of the largest, most in-depth campaigns my company has ever embarked upon, and I'm happy to say that I am a part of it!
So, suffice it to say, that I'm knittin' like a mad woman on my breaks and lunches! (and on my commute to/from work also!)
I have a few projects on the go... some are actually 'going' more than others, to be honest... one that I am working on it driving me mental only because I absolutely love it and the mistakes in it are killing me!! lol
It's been a long, tiring weekend to say the least.
Saturday i woke up at 4AM barfing and diarreha. Yeck! Lasted about 8 hours. couldn't eat a bite either, and any liquids i drank came right out again via one end or the other. o.O
Today I had to get up early as I had a MRI scheduled at 7:30 for my knee. Uggg, those machines are weird! What the hell is with the noises it makes????
(Why did i go for an MRI)
I slipped in the bathroom about 3 weeks ago and twisted my knee, hurt my hip and my lower back. Since I've been having issues with my knee lately, my doctor wanted to make sure i didn't seriously damage anything in there.
I finished quite a few projects since last on here! lol
is going very well. I'm very busy, working for 3 managers, a Program Director and a Director - plus any of their staff that needs assistance.
Hubby is doing very well in his new Career! He's happy and enjoying the work.
M moved into her own apartment and is still doing a lot of travelling with her job.
S isn't doing that well in school
A is doing well in school
Right now I've been watching the first 2 episodes of Game of Thrones season 2 on the movie network, can't wait for tonight for ep3!!!!
I can't believe its' October - Thanksgiving weekend to be presise, and I haven't posted on here for almost a year! Wow. And what a year its' been!
I finally found a job, and after 3 weeks of contract - was offered full-time permanent with full benefits! Now to get caught up on some bills.
I've been knitting a wee bit. Really need to change that side bar to reflect what's going on with my needles right now.
My oldest DD is in Mexico right now with her work. Thus I won't see her on her birthday tomorrow. So, happy birthday Bella Mia. You are my heart, be happy and safe, and have a wonderful year. I love you, M.
My son started high school. He's taking a double auto mechanics course, science math and explore tech. Poor kid! lol. And he's taller than I am now!
And my youngest, has also changed schools. She is now walking a little way to her new school, but is always with a friend, so that's ok. She loves her teachers, and has made tons of friends.
I'm also working on Juneberry. I originally got the magazine specifically for this pattern, but the pattern was condensed too much (considering this is an advanced knit), and it was too difficult to understand what to do on Chart B. Thus, the Ravelry Juneberry pattern came my way via a RAK. I've just started chart D, and hope to finish that tonight. :)
Damask is also started, and it's a beautiful shawl! Plus, I just received Batic in a RAK!! lol.
