I slack. I apologize.

When I first started this I totally thought I would blog often and talk about whatever. Then it was just sporadic and now I rarely do it. One of my closest friends has TWO blogs and another friend has an awesome knitting blog and here I am with my blah blah blog and I don't even put anything on it. OK I'm going to attempt to keep this bad boy up!
First thing on the agenda: KNITTING!
I've just started a new project for myself. It's the Infinitude Scarf by Jeni Chase that I found on Ravely. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for and I had my yarn all ready and waiting then..... realized I didn't have the right needles. BLAST! So I had to order them online. and wait. Okay it was only 2 days that I had to wait but still, I wanted to MAKE THIS!! So last night I get home and there are my needles.
I get out my AWESOME Sheep(ish) yarn in Teal(ish) and start knitting. And after casting on 240 stitches and doing half a round I realized this yarn MIGHT not have been the wisest choice. It's kind of itchy and fuzzy. Duh, it's wool. Well a wool blend. But.... I'm truly madly deepy in love with the color. Ooh wait wasn't that a Savage Garden song? Let's bring it back to Junior High! Wow haven't thought of that group in a while. ANYWAY, I decided I'm going to attempt to finish this scarf cowl wrap thing and then attempt to knit another one before we leave for ireland. THe whole poitn of this is so I have something to keep my head/neck warm while we're in freezing ass England and Ireland. So that's the plan.
In other news, my best friend is getting married in a mere couple weeks. EXCITING
and I'm going to see not one but TWO 100 monkeys shows at the end of Aug SUPER EXCITING
and then I get married Sept 10. Where has the time gone?!?!?!?!?
