yellow top

this is the new yellow top I am working on. The back is lots of knit 2 purl 2 for a whopping 81 rows ! Oh yes fun , fun. The good thing about it though is how it settles ones mind. I can really feel myself unwind as I knit this.
Below is the new project bag I made to for it all to go in. This was a tank top found at a thrift store. I just loved the black trim and it covers a horrible gray stain that was on it when I bought it.

I have picasa 3 for my photos now. A new adventure in getting creative!

A commitment to Dad

My dad wants to ride his bicycle everyday . So that means I will be calling him everyday. As kids grow , your parents grow with their own lives. Some talk everyday while others go months without a work to each other. I didn't plan on being the kid that could go months without contact. I know I did not grow up thinking I would be distant from my parents . Life just happened . I started this year with a commitment to myself to understand my reality. To know me is to know , reality for me in the past was a word in the dictionary!

I just got off the phone with him. He is on a mission to get the other deer twin that was just born a few days ago. They take the baby deer early , so they can be bottle fed growing up tame and petable. He will be trying to get the baby before the mom hides it. She has caught on to what my parents do when they come into the deer pen.
I have not done my walk , I'm sure he will call later . I will be talking to him like never before.

This is when size does matter. I only want 4 inches not six. Well I am going to move forward with this very simple tank top in the most bumpy yarn noro has ever produced on size ones . I love the multi colours and the texture is okay , no braless wearing with this one !

I made deviled eggs yesterday for stamp club , with equal parts butter and mayonnaise and fresh herbs . They were good , recipe is from Julia Child cookbook of wisdom tips.

I have a busy day at work.
I am hoping to have the energy afterwords to walk a 5 mile walk with Lynn and Robbie .
I guess I better go get some support hose on!

I have a project finished. This is me talking ! Imagine that . Jeffery took the picture. It is the top for Kristen's graduation . Now to figure out what to cover my ass with .
It is the second day of June. I have a whole list of what I want to get done this month.
Blog daily
water 100 oz at least
read the Secret at 5 pages a day
being on time to work is ongoing but not at the top of the list.
keep the house decluttered. It rubs me to have someone notice how clean my computer desk is. Not that i don't like it , I do but it is boring but will be easy to dust and Dale might notice and smile about it . That it is his desire to have an uncluttered house that had me do it . Oh and that I got a new computer ! I have very good friends , they see so much good in me and point it out . I need that since my husband is oh so good at pointing out the bad.

Putting beads on yarn first depends on how strong your yarn is. The top is made from cotton so it could handle 30 beads or so at a time being pulled along.

Time to finish something or start something new. KIP is coming up . I kinda want something new for it. I have a simple knit top that I will start the swatch on today. Yes I swatch.

knit ya later
