Drive to work

I drive 30 miles from Reno to Carson City and go through a really beautiful place called Washoe Valley. It's is wonderful to watch the season change. Here's a pictures I took last week. The Mountain to the right, covered in snow is Slide Mountain. It got its name because parts of it slide off. The last time this happened was about 25 years ago, I was in the area when it happened. Amazing to see part of a mountain fall off.

A case of Startitis

I've go a very bad case of startitis. I started a scarf yesterday and a pair of socks today. Yesterday the new Kitty went on line with a cool new technique for hand painted yarns and on the way in today I could just envision all kinds of cool stuff like mits and hats.

I am running a bit flustered today. Jack has started this annoying habit of crawling up into my face around 3:30 in the morning. At 5 I finally got up and had a cup of tea then went back to bed at 7. This means I don't wake up again until 11. On this kind of a schedule I'm not getting anything done around the house. It shows. I one got one load of laundry dried and folded. The other's in the dryer. I washed on Monday. The floors need to be mopped so badly. I hate that it takes so much just to pick up so it can be cleaned up.

Blogs, blogs and more blogs

I read blogs. A lot of blogs. I am inspired and entertain by them. I have cried and laughed. I treasure these wonderful people more than I could even let them know. I can't go a day with out checking in and making sure they are OK.

Once in a while a writer come out with a post that just grabs me. Here is such a post, http://www.modeknit.com/

It was a nice drive in today. Unlike yesterday. It was all rainy/snowy yuck. I was glad when Mike called and I had to go get him. I was not looking forward driving home at 11pm. Washoe Valley was very beautiful. One of these days I'd like to get some pictures to post here.

I've been knitting a lot and some day I might get some pictures posted of my on going projects. The mits I'm knitting to go with the hat out of BMF's Silkie Socks that Rock are stunning. I think this project will be submitted to the Fair this year. I am really proud of the job I'm doing on them.

I finished a pair of socks for Mike and have enough yarn left over that I think I'll knit a third sock. I'm not sure there's enough for a hat.

I've got two scarves and another pair of socks and a sweater on needles at the moment. All are progressing nicely.
