Pictures as promised

Here are the pictures I promised earlier today. First the finished cardinal longies

And what I have done on the Onyx longies


Man I had not realized it has been so long since I last posted! How time flies when you are a bit stressed and busy. On the home front V had her surgery last Monday, getting ready for that drained me more than I was prepared for. It was for a cyst that had grown to about the size of a small lima bean on the tip of her nose -- originally the doctors were talking about leaving it alone for a little bit, but after going to a consult with a ped surgeon we suddenly got a call that a surgery was schedlued for her the next week (which still makes me nervous even after the surgery -- the last time a surgery was schedlued that fast it was because my mom had cancer). We all made it through and hopefully V will only have a very small hardly noticable scar to show -- although right now the incision goes down the center of almost her entire little nose.

And now on to the knitting - I have finished the cardinal twist longies and those are shipping today. I cast on the Onyx Heather longies last night and plan to work on them a lot this week hopefully the will not take as long as the cardinal longies. I do have pictures but I have to get both girls ready for a doctor apt for V so I will post this for now and come back and add pictures when we get back.

I am so glad..

...that I knit :) I am training 4:30 to midnight every night this week for a seasonal night job. The training involves computers and people who are not familiar with computers (but who believe they are and argue with the trainer--love that) it it wasn't for my knitting I would be crazy by now and it is only day 2! I just split for the legs and I plan to get much more done tonight.

I will put a picture up tomorrow :)

Still here!

I'm still here, I've just found the updating daily is difficult with my older computer. It takes me almost a half hour to get one picture uploaded, simply because it takes a long time for my computer to pull them off of my memory card. Hopefully soon we will be able to buy a new computer.

Anyway still working away on the cardinal longies. I am just about to join the second skein of yarn so I thought I would post a picture :) I just finished the short rows another few inches and I will start the gusset.
