That time of year...

...when knitting goes to the backburner and parties, gift buying and incoming family take priority. Yeah, I know....I'm a bad, bad knitter. I don't knit gifts for my family anymore. No one seemed to appreciate it anyway. I'm tired of making something and them not taking care of it or not thanking me or acknowledging that I took time and effort into not only creating the gift, but also in considering what exactly was the perfect thing for them and what yarn and what color. So....I'm over it. No more for me. This year at least.

I'm really excited because I hear there is a snb group forming at the lys. I need to get some more info, but from what I hear it's going to be on Thursday evenings. I'm really happy about that. Maybe I'll start getting more done and enjoying it more. Of course, I won't be able to join until Feb. or so since my schedule is pretty much packed until then, but I have something to look forward to at least.

I just got a new camera and once I have a memory stick I'll take a pic of the votive sleeve I made. It's actually really pretty and looks great with the candle lit. Hopefully they will sell when I start making them for that purpose. It'd be nice to have a little income. Finding a job here is impossible. That's ok though. Dh is really supportive and doesn't mind that I'm not working. It helps that our house sold and we are down to one mortgage. We can afford for me not to work now. YAY!!! I do keep myself busy though. It's not like I sit around all day eating bon-bons and watching soaps. I'm involved in belly dancing and OSA stuff and a stamping group not to mention keeping up the house and grocery shopping and feeding my husband.
