Lacey

Since I didn't take any summer classes, besides work, I spend most of my time on knitting. To me, the progress of the Oversized Lace Top is going pretty fast. I love the pattern, I wish I could finish the top tomorrow so that I could wear it... of course it's only a dream.

After reading couple blogs of the SnBers, I found out about the Mystery Stole 3. I have joined last weekend, plus I also asked Becky, my sister-in-law, to join with me, so even we are far way from each other, we could knit the same thing, neat!! I am a bit nervous about this project. It will be my first lace stole, and first "beads involved" project. Also, I am afraid that I can't keep up with the others. My yarn and beads are on the way to my house, I can't wait to do the swatches!! I think it will be fun.

Besides knitting, I have picked up cooking again too. Last week, I bought a bag of green peppers from Sam's Clubs, you know how BIG that bag is from Sam's. There were 6 big peppers in the bag. I used 2 of them to make Black Bean Chicken last week. I still had 4 left on Monday, I was worried that they wouldn't last very long. So I went to allrecipes.com to find a recipe that I could use all of my peppers. Yesterday, I have cooked my first Stuffed pepper. And they were surprisingly good.


I have done something stupid today. This morning when I got up, I had a very heavy headache and a bad neck pain. I took an Advil and told myself I was fine, then I went to work. When I was driving to work, I felt like I was acting slow. I almost had an accident because the car in front of me was stopping and I didn't know. I worked for an hour and I have decided to leave since I knew my brain was not functioning. It's stupid because I shouldn't even have gone to work in the morning... After I got home, I lied down on bed, and passed out for 4 hours... I feel much better now, if you are concerned.

Hi, Anphoe! Thanks for your comments on my Monkey socks -- I hope you have fun with your own Monkeys. I also have the problem of wanting to make too many things!... I signed up for Mystery Stole 3 earlier this week, too (it sounds so fun!), and I need to start my Pencil Sketch Camisole, finish my socks, and I have a list of things I'd like to make that just keeps growing and growing... ack!

Perhaps if I had eight arms, like my octopus, (and a really great, multi-tasking brain) I could knit several projects at once....

Oh, and I have no idea how I'm getting so many comments on my blog (I don't really "know" any of the people who are commenting, but I sure appreciate them, including you, coming by!). Several of the projects I've blogged about were part of KALs, so I think some people followed my KAL posts to my blog. Also, I spend way to much time reading other people's blogs (I really enjoy seeing what other people, including you, are knitting), and since I started my own blog, I am commenting more on other people's...

Ok... that was really long...

Happy knitting!

Of course I was concerned!!!

I don't like peppers, but I do like stuffed peppers, just don't eat the peppers :)

Where did you get your pattern for the hat? You probably posted it from an older post and I just didn't see it... IM me and let me know! I want a hat just like it! :)
