Long time no Blog!

I haven't been able to post in a while - our cable is out! Stupid Comcast was supposed to replace our line and instead of replacing it - they just disconnected the old one and never connected the new one!! I tell ya and right during premiere week too! Argh!!!

Anyway - I've been busy traveling and knitting and stuff as usual. I even got to be a tourist for a little while - on Thursday last week. I got out of work a little early and decided to go up to Sandia Tramway and mountain.

It was gorgeous! I couldn't believe how high it was. The altitude was over 10,000ft! There was snow on the ground and the wind was howling. It was a great view of the city though and well worth the $15 to get up there.

The tram ride was a little scarier than I thought it would be. The car was shaking in the wind and it was a LOOOOOOOOOONG way down. There was some crazy guy riding on TOP of the tramcar!

I got a lot of knitting done during my week away too. I finished my multi-directional scarf that I started at Woolwinders Sunday in the Salon last week. I love the yarn - it's Manos.

I also decided to practice some cabling and started this cool bag. I just need to add handles now, a lining and stitch the whole thing together.

At Sunday in the Salon this week - we started these cool beaded bags. I may end up ripping my back and starting again though- I didn't have a small enough needle for my yarn and it looks a little messy with the size 5 I used.

Here’s Shelby and Margaret:

and the rest of the group from last week….(Sorry no pics from this week!)

In other news - I am also working on my sock for Sock Wars!! I am done with the first one and just about to start the second - but then I got an email from my assassin saying she put my socks in the mail on Monday. No!!!! I'll be dead before the week is out. But I am glad that I will be getting some socks!! Yeah! I may even be able to finish the ones I'm making before they arrive. I wish I knew how what happened then.... If I get my socks out - but receive socks in the meantime - what happens? Am I still dead?

Oh well. I'll leave you with this gorgeous photo of Sandia mountain taken at 6:30 am last Friday as I was packing my car to leave. Isn't it gorgeous!

And I came home to this on Friday – My Clematis is blooming again – yeah!!

How did I miss seeing those lovely flowers when I was over your house on Saturday? Could it be the mad dash to make a sock a day for sock wars???????????????????????? I think my hands are cramping. If I wasn't in need of more money for more yarn- I would have called out dead from work already. I cannot knit at work!!!!!!!!!!!! Does anyone have a job they can knit at work? If so, please let me know ASAP!
