If your friends all jumped off a bridge.....

Would you do it too?

No, I wouldnt jump off a bridge, but all my friends have blogs, so I had to do it too. I have thought about starting one for a long time but never got around to it.

So I am a follower. My friends are all swapping to and now I am becoming a swap-aholic. I got my first package in the the mail from Amy. A lovely little purse kit in great fall colors. I especially like those lime green handles! I will post a pic tommorrow. Thanks Amy in Texas! My kit will be going out on Thursday morning. I have to get needles before I can send it out. Picture forthcoming also.

I am also working on mittens for Mittens Duece. Now I am no stranger to the knittin gof mittens, but I have pulled out and restarted this darn mitten 4 times now. I think I have it finally. Once you get the sizig and guage right, mittens really are amazingly fast to knit. I sure cant wait to get my mittens. I gave mine pair away last year and my poor hands are getting cold and chapped.

My place of employment changed location suddenly and we are having a time getting the phones and internet hooked up. I make 2 trips to Panera a day to check and send emails. I am going to write a book. The Panera Chicken Noodle Soup Diet. Move over Jerod, you can keep your Subway.
