I have a Secret Pal

I know its been awhile since I've posted but its been crazy around here. I started a new temp to perm job and still working another job part time too. So my only day off is Sunday. I was so excited when I came home last night and found a box from my Favorite Color SP. I immediatly opened the box to find some goodies for me and bagel and pickle. I took a couple of pictures and hopefully I can find a computer that has high speed so I can down load them. I'm also ready to ship for my SP who I found out loves to knit socks. Hopefully she will like what I got her!

Trying to Upload Pictures

I've been trying to upload pictures of some of my WIP and FO but since I have dialup its been really slow! I'm going to try and work on it today!

I took this quiz from someone elses blog and I find the answer really funny, since I come from LA! But I'm not the normal LA person. I don't know where the best parties are and don't glam it up either. LOL

You Are Los Angeles

Young and fun, you always know where the best parties are.
And while you tend to keep things carefree and casual...
You certainly can glam it up when you need to.

Famous people from Los Angeles: Tyra Banks, Jake Gyllenhall, Freddie Prinze Jr.

What type of yarn are you??

Alpaca! You are incredibly warm yarn made from llamas. you are warm, gentle, and generous. but somethimes a little TOO generous. If you want a good relationshi with people, you need to recieve as much as you give.

Scarf Style/Wrap Style Knit-Along

Scarf Style/Wrap Style Knit-Along

I just started the Lady Eleanor Stole from Scarf Style. It's made out of SW Trading Co Karaoke #278. It's been fun to work with. I found the above blog that has been helpful. Check it out! I took a picture of my WIP and tried to download it but since I don't have dsl or cable it's been taking too long. I thought I would burn the pictures to a disk but at before 6 this morning it wasn't a good idea. Hopefully tonight! I just started on my second ball too....

Funny Quiz

I've been reading other knitters blogs for the past couple of days and just found this quiz! I took it and here it is:


Which Princess Bride Character are You?
this quiz was made by mysti

I still love this movie after all these years. Especially since it has Cary Elwes in it. I usually don't like guys with blonde hair( the darker hair the better, are you reading this Hugh Jackman? Jeff Goldblum?), but still he's a cutie!
