I am currently sucking big time in my fantasy football leagues. I think watching more intently for individual players is more stressful than just cheering for one team. Oh well, can't win them all.
This is the first of the 3 Christmas stockings I am doing this year. This one is for Lori and the other two will be similar, just slight variation in color. I am very happy with how it has turned out. Picture on top is after felting.

I worked this top down raglan sweater in Red Heart camouflage yarn. It was a super easy pattern from the Cubs for Kids website and is being donated through Football-a-long. Everything was worked in the round and I also got to eliminate a skein from my stash.
I am currently working on the striped scarf noted earlier in the blog. Lots of mindless rows. I'd also like to get a picture and description posted on the Auntie-a-long blog this evening.
I'll be starting on the sweaterbabe sweater this week also. I need to get my swatch started to that I am ready to go on Saturday, cast-on date.

- The Velveteen Rabbit, In Humanity
I've always liked this quote but reading it again I realized how much it means to me. I'm Real and the love I have is Real. Sadly, it is ugly to people who don't understand.
Thanks, Lo, for including me in your life -- and tattoo.

Appetizer What is your favorite kind of pie? Warm apple a la mode.
Soup Name something that made you smile this week. My niece Zoey. I can't help but smile because she is always happy.
Salad What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid? Lay under the fan with a cool washcloth.
Main Course You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up? Definitely the bedroom. I would purchase a headboard, new linens, and paint for the walls.
Dessert Fill in the blank: My bank says I'm broke, but I really don't care.

I also am going to do some web searching for different sizes of split rings in order to make some sets of stitch markers. I'm using the set of Zeccas and their interchangeable rings as my inspiration.
Also on my needles is a Sirdar sweater pattern for the For Me?! knitalong. Again, I didn't want to go shopping so I have 198 stitches shoved on to some straight 10 1/2 needles. It was fine for the 3 rows of garter stitch but I'm not going to be able to enjoy watching the pattern develop on something so narrow. My goal is to finish this project before I go back to school. It is looming out there and I like my countdown calendar seen below.

I really don't want to go back but I'll be finished in December -- until I decide what I want to be when I grow up.
I have lots of knitting to complete which is going to require some careful planning and prioritizing. I have some items in my stash that are just crying to come out and play.
This is also the end of my 4-day work weeks so it's back to the normal schedule.

|You scored as The Corpse Bride,|
What Tim Burton movie do you belong in?
created with QuizFarm.com
True story. Swear.
nice lady: Hello. Helena, you sound horrible. Are you feeling okay, dear?
Jen: Sorry, this is not Helena. This is Jennifer.
nice lady: Oh, is this the Burton residence?
Jen: No, sorry you have the wrong number. You've reached the (name changed to protect the innocent) home.
nice lady: Oh, I am sorry. I have used the wrong speed dial button again. No wonder I didn't recognize your voice. You are the housesitter. Sorry to bother you.
Jen: No bother. Good-bye.
nice lady: Bye.
Burton residence???? Helena???? She thought I was Helena Bonham-Carter? Shut up! I should have looked through their address book and found Tim Burton's phone number and address. I am a huge fan.
Edward Scissorhands is my favorite but I don't mind being the Bride.

Just another example of my obsessive compulsive tendencies.
I have made a conscious effort to set aside some time each day to knit for myself and am not feeling guilty at all. I'll have even more time as soon as finals are over! Yeah!
