Well, lookie here...

it's me again!  Two whole days in a ROW!

Aren't you proud?


Actually, I am here because this week I am prepared for Ginny's Yarn Along.  So here, without further ado, is what is on the hook and on the Kindle:

*crickets chirping*

*more crickets*

Sorry.  I was mistaken about the whole "further ado" thing.  It seems that miss raven needed to take care of some urgent personal business.  Not what you are thinking, though.  She wanted to take care of the urgent personal business of sitting smack on my lap thus preventing me from typing on the computer.  I may have gained weight back but my lap is STILL not big enough for her and the laptop.  Because she is so persistent, she wins every time.


Here you go:

As you can see, I am still reading the crochet mystery series.  This is the last one for right now (the new one comes out in a couple of months) and I can't really tell you all that much about it since I just started it.  On the hook, though, is a wonderful piece of loveliness.  At least it will be once I am finished.  I hope.  I picked up a book with patterns for Tunisian crochet (all the stiches remain on the hook through one pass and are worked off through the back pass.)  If I complete this project correctly, It will end up as a large rectangle that I will then give a little twist to in order to create a Mobeius strip which will then make it a shawl. 

Was that as complicated to read and understand as I think it is?

I promise to take pictures when I finish.

I have a swap buddy and apparently I have more people who read my blog regularly than I thought.  Sorry if I offended anyone by saying that only my BFF would notice if I didn't blog my Yarn Along last week.  I'm glad to know that more people read than I think.


One final that I am not the "boss" at work anymore I get to be friends with some of the people that worked for me.  I had a wonderful lunch with one of them today.  It was nice to have an adult conversation with someone and not talk about work!  I have a meeting at work tomorrow (YES, I am STILL on vacation and am going in to work) and then I am going to see another friend of mine for the afternoon.  I have tentative plans to go see a movie with another friend on Friday and then my dad comes to see me on Saturday.  Phew!  My vacation is going by fast!

Have a great Thursday and keep cool!
