still alive

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.... just chillin'

I frogged a lovely lambswool/cashmere blend sweater hoping to make the every way wrap from IK fall 2009 issue... but I'm about 70 yards shy.... c'est la vie!

I've started a sweater for DD's American Girl Doll for her birthday. One sleeve is complete. I had started earlier in the week but ripped it out deciding to knit it in the round instead. Now to figure out how to address the body of the sweater in the round....

I've been working on a webpage for my students. Perhaps you'd like to visit it. It's hardly finished, but i have some recording to do... I only hope they use it!

well off to knit a bit and then hit the bed.... So strange that Virginia and North Carolina have been hammered by snow and we haven't seen a flake! oh well.....

DH knows how to treat a girl on her 50th birthday!

The kids woke me up with 3 gifts...
a charm for my troll bracelet
House season 5
a beautiful scarf with african design
dinner with the family at my local favorite italian restaurant
purple irises
chocolate cake
the Beatles remastered in stereo
Bose on ear headphones
Bose wavelink sound system
Bose iPod kit

He checked my wish list from December... told me he couldn't afford the car.... we got our iPhones a few days ago... so I should be set for quite some time! I think he went a little overboard!
