So, Chris asked me what I'm going to post about. I told him I didn't know. He said "Post about something awesome... like me."
So, I is for Inspiration, and my husband is mine. I guess my lack of post is not due to lack of muse. But even the most fantastic muse can't get salmon fillet out of chum. My mind has just been in other places. Something did occur to me, though. I've let the "You must have pictures to make a blog post" get to me. I've stopped myself from blogging lately because I didn't feel I had the pictures to back the post up. So enough of that. If I feel I have to force pictures into a post, then I don't feel that I'm being organic. My strong suit, I feel, is my language. I will not always post pictures, and I won't apologize for it. I'm sorry I let all of "those people" get to me.
But today I have some pictures. K is for Knit in Public, and we had a good one.
We've met some new friends (on the right is Heather, our new buddy who I hope we see a lot more of. On the left is Donna, my mother in law. She's pretty awesome too, not new, but still pretty great).
We also got to meet Pat, who is a wonderful lady, and a great knitter (I learned all of this in the 5 minutes that she had to share with us, we WILL HAVE to meet up again).
Did we get the crowds that we were ready to enjoy? No, but we still had a fantastic time. Lots of knitting got done, lots of jokes were shared, weather was enjoyed, hula hooping was reveled in (until Lora's oldest boy picked up a hula hoop for the first time in his life, then he picked up a second, and hooped with both of them. Yeah, spirit was busted. I haven't touched my hoop in that long.)
But even with only us, we used our powers for good instead of evil.
So many people brought yarn, bags, gift certificates, hand knit socks, and so many wonderful goodies to raffle off. We actually had more gifts than participants, so we joined some together. We ended up raising just under 100 dollars for New Horizons, Manchester's soup kitchen/food pantry/shelter. These people do such wonderful things for our area, and we're glad to help them do it.
So I want to thank everyone who showed up, everyone who bought a raffle ticket, everyone who donated something to raffle, everyone who expressed a desire to be with us, but couldn't, for whatever reason. Thank you, thank you, thank you. See you again next year!
L is for Lazy knitter, which I am not. Want to see?
Not a very recent photo, I've got a few more inches done, but I'm done letting photos, or lack thereof, stagnate my blogging, remember?
I've finished something else, but I'm not ready to share that yet ;)
L could also be for Lazy blogger, I guess, but here's a list of the other things that have been taking my attention: gardening (tomato above for proof) Wii Fit (5 pounds lost, as proof), reading (yeah, I've forgotten how to do that lately), wanting to spend time with my husband instead of upstairs on my computer (on his laptop now) and (AND!) Friday I got my Master Knitter's package.
Ok, so the Master Knitter program that I just got can't really give me an excuse for the last month, but I may need to use it later, so pay attention to it.) I get my yarn tomorrow, UPS willing. I'll be keeping up with my progress on my Ravelry projects page, if you're inclined to keep tabs on me. You know, that is if I don't blog it.
Ok, I'm going to stop here. I feel the whole post is a little disjointed, and I don't think that adding more will correct that. So everyone have a pleasant sleep tonight, and let the week be smoothe and sweet.
