I just started a new bag (entrelac!) and have to wind up 5 balls by hand. Ugghh... it is the worst process, especially with cats around.

is it horrible that I don't even remember the color I have been buying like crazy this week.... purple computer, pink camera...... I would say purple... hehe I think that I got a few different colors of purple actually... or maybe a teal?

and what are we eating? I have to buy something cause jeremy wouldn't let me get anything fun at the store this weekend cause it was crazy crowded!

oh, i dont care whats for dinner...you're my italian martha stewart, anything you make is going to be delicious. As long as it isn't lobster, crab, raw fish, or dairy I'm not so picky. Ok, so thats kinda picky :lol:
This is what I've done so far...I did 9 12-row patter repeats, so now I'm switching to the size 4 DPNs. 3 PRs and I get to switch to the size 5's and then back to the 3's for the 2x2 ribbing for 2 inches. I'm in love.

OMG they look awesome!!!!! I actually got a PR done on my socks... only about 4 more till I have to do the toe (which I haven't ever done before... the kitchener stictch is scaring me a little!)

none of my yarn is here yet so I am going to work on the socks tonight more.... hopefully I can get like 1 or 2 PRs done and then I will try to finish this one up on the plane next week....

haha and don't worry... no lobster tonight.... I am thinking maybe a roast beef or something cause I have asparagus to go with it and I can just toss it in the oven (and last night I was at an event and they had roast beef and I realllllllly wanted some!).... I'll see what they have at the store on my way home.... should be home by 6ish (and he gets home at like 7:30 so dinner is at like 8)

I might be meeting Matt at some point tonight just to say hi before they all head down to Hampton, and I might not. Depends on what time they get to the area, if they have time to stop, and if I want to leave your house :lol:

LOL Carla and Georgi - do you remember we totally sat down to make cozies at Vibes Thursday and everyone got distracted? I printed out all those monogram letters!! I want a nalgene cozy...I know you make those. I'll knit you a hat if you knit me one!!! :heartbounce:

Terra - Yeah, I moved back in w/ my mom. Its not nearly as horrible as I thought it'd be. Although she came downstairs just now (yes, I'm the troll in the basement) to tell me theres a cop parked up the street so I shouldn't go walk Toby cause there might be bad men outside. HAHAHAHAHA. I told her they were probably looking for speeders or drunk drivers. She says they've got their lights flashing, to which I reply with my previous statement and then added black people, cause this area leans more towards the racist side. Now there are 4 cop cars with their lights flashing outside our house and all my mom can think is "don't walk the dog" HAHAHAHAHAHA. Seriously? Ok, so its probably funnier in person but this is the highlight of my evening. Minus the photo organization...I found pictures from elementary school. They're all going in labeled boxes. Who knew that when I stopped rolling blunts I'd start to become so OCD organized? Its like a creeping fungus. Its starting to take over!!! (ps. i might have made a drink and watched Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist tonight. I'm a lightweight. Goodnight.)


and yes, tuesdays are good for me!


great movie!!!

Oh and I cant knit to save my life but id like to see you guys and maybe try and learn something new! Tues are good for me, there the only weekday except fri that I don

you are definitely invited over... next week I will be in chicago most of the week so I think we have to skip it but the week after (so march 17th..st patricks day!) is open if you guys are ok with knitting instead of bar hopping

let me know... I usually cook dinner so just let me know if youy have any restrictions (I usually cook while we knit so customizing isn't an issue)


and didn't terra say she was going to come too!!!!!! some one drag that girl up to JC

only 2 more PR on my sock and then I do the toe and its done! (well one is done....)

yeah, they do an acoustic set from 8:30-9:30, something about live-band karaoke, and cover tunes. The singer - Rob - can make his voice sound like just about anyone and they're all really animated...except for my friend who makes faces at me, rolls his eyes, and silently mouths off when they play a dumb song. Its really quite entertaining :funny1:

I plan on going shopping tonight after work so I should be able to go directly home ..... um so anytime after 6 is cool - lisa usually gets there around 6:30/ 7ish which will give us some time to get some knitting going before we hit the bar..... also I am thinking of making the kale & beer recipe on the healthy hippie email this week

haha are you really going to try to one-up the matzoh ball soup? I would pay to see the looks on Jeremy's family's faces when they taste your deliciousness! You me and my mom would have SO much fun cooking together. I think you should come over one night when the weather is warmer...theres a pool/hot tub/sauna and a bar where she keeps all the wine and liquor (ps. my mom doesn't drink she just stocks the bar for her guests) she LOVES to entertain, and loves it even more when all my friends are here enjoying themselves. Shes a beaming smile from ear to ear...says it isn't "home" unless she's cooking for people.
