Knitting and Manic Monday

I have decided that blog posts should not have to include a title. I have such a hard time putting a title on a post that there have been times when I just said to heck with it. Most of the time the title "Blather" pretty much covers the whole thing.

I did get my Knitting Journal started, as I have to re-knit the lost scarf for THE Boyfriend. (Yes, I decided to call him THE Boyfriend, some people were offended that I called him Numbnuts, even though he wasn’t.) I have also purchased a tub for all ’09 presents so I do not lose them. I have also started another scarf for DD1 and am working on a scarf for DD2. I wish I could knit as fast as other people do, I always feel so. . .mmmmmm? . . . slow when I read other peoples blogs and they have knit a hat in an evening or a sweater in 2 days. I wish someone would tell me what the secret is to knitting a hat in an evening. I have a project in the bedroom, one in the livening room, and I always have one in my purse (which I picked out because it was big enough for a small project). So why does it take me so long to finish a project?

Remember this post about the scarf for my friend? It turned out great, but of course, I forgot to get a picture. While I was knitting it I had my doubts, but once is was soaked and blocked it looked great, the yarn bloomed nicely so it was soft and scrunchy. She liked it and has worn it so I was pleased. I made an Irish Hiking scarf for someone last year, and I think it ended up in a bag destined for a thrift store. That’s okay though, because I know whomever it ends up with will use it because they want to, not because they feel like they have to.

Manic Monday
Do you have any idiosyncrasies or unusual quirks when it comes to food and/or eating? I want the food to be served at the correct temp, if the soup should be cold, I want it cold not room temp, however if it is supposed to be hot, I want it hot. And, if the tomatoes are overripe, do not put them in my salad, put them in a soup or stew :-).

Have you ever written love letters? If so, do you still have any of them? Nope, nada

How easy or difficult is it for you to say you're sorry? I don’t have a difficult time saying I am sorry, if I feel that I am wrong about something; however if I do not feel that I am wrong, I have a very difficult time with it.

I feel the same about blog titles too. Glad your friend liked her scarf.

The secret to knitting a hat in one night is to sit for 6 hours doing nothing but knitting while your 2 toddlers torture their father and trash the house and you lose all feeling in your bum and hands;)Hugs Darcy

Darcy got that right, lol. To finish in a night you do NOTHING else.
