Someone really needs to tell my Weather Pixie chick that it is cold and she needs a winter jacket and mittens, and a touque! I have tried, but she doesn't listen to me. It must be a blonde thing!

For your viewing pleasure.... I have tried my hand at creating a button. It isn't what I wanted yet, but this is an idea of what I am aiming for, and one day I hope to get one created If anyone has suggestions for improvement, PLEASE let me know. I really can use all the help I can get! I would like to do a banner with the marbles as a background, but haven't figured out how to upload that onto this blog. I wish the HTML books wouldn't put me to sleep as quickly as they do. ;-)

And here is a picture from last spring. That is my Aunt's llama, Cassie and I. Cassie is due to become a mother in June of 2003.

I am learning to take Shannita's advice and copy my posts in case Blogger pulls their usual fast ones. I also try to post with w.bloggar instead because it hasn't mucked things up on me yet.

I am still working on the same three projects and wishing I could start or return to one of the other hundred that is waiting in the wings. I need to become more disciplined. (Yeah, right!) I do know, that it really doesn't matter what I work on, as soon as I knit a few stitches my stress level goes down and I relax. Sometimes to the point of almost falling asleep. It is interesting how that has changed since my younger days when I would get all tensed up trying to finish a project as quickly as possible. It must be my age or something! :-)

My husband surprised me by making me two spindles yesterday. I haven't shown him the ones I have, simply pictures of ones from various web sites. The two he made are rather interesting. The designs are pretty good, but need a few changes, and we really need to figure out a better hook design. But I was impressed, and he was thrilled that I liked them! He is now trying to figure out just how they work, so it is a little like the blind leading the blind when I try to teach him, however, I think he has a fairly good understanding now. He said that he was hoping to get good enough to make some to sell. I am not sure if he was joking or not, but I am not holding my breath. Just asking for him to make one for my Spindlers list Santee. We will have to get the kinks out of the design first, but he has a week or two. LOL!!!

Anyway, I need to finish my Domestic Goddess chores before I can take out some knitting and supervise Youth Drop-in. The kids are pretty used to seeing me knit while I am there and are always asking what the current project is. The first one to show any interest in learning will get jumped on though. :-) I would love to teach a few of them, but it probably won't happen until after exam time in January. We shall see though.

Take care!
