Going CRAZY!!!

Ok, so I here I sit at work, and all I want to do is knit. I wish I could figure out a way to work and knit at the same time...wouldn't that be awesome??

When I get home this evening it's the first thing I'm going to do...pick up one of my "way too many" on the needle projects, and START KNITTING!!

Woo Hoo!

It's almost FRIDAY! I have always looked forward to the weekend's. Before losing Rina it was so we could do family stuff, or just be together. I guess now it's sort of the same...being able to spend quiet time with Scott and just relaxing...oh, and of course, knitting.

I'm itching to start my new sweater, but my swatch isn't coming out right. I'm going to try it one more time on different size needles.

I finished a few more Preemie caps and mitt's for charity in honor of Corrina. That makes a total of 10 caps and mitt sets. I know that somewhere Rina's smiling. She did that a lot...smiling. I miss her big smile, her giggle, her voice. I JUST MISS HER! I love you Rina Jempell!

Well soon I'll be home knitting and sitting by Scott....Ahhhhhh!

Missing In Action

Wow, it's been awhile, hasn't it? I guess a knitting update would be appropriate now. I've finished a few more baby items for the Charity KAL. I need to take some pictures and get them posted on here and on Ravelry. I'm almost finished with the knitting bag for my sister. I have finished the needle case, and a pair of plain vanilla socks. And I'm 1/2 done on my tank-top.

I have recently cast-on for a new KAL on Knit Picks. It's a really pretty cardigan knitted up in lace weight double-stranded. It's a very classic look. I lied though. I haven't cast on...I'm actually swatching, not quite the same thing, is it?

I have a digital photo frame here on my desk at work, and I just happened to glance over and there was the picture of Dad, Mom, Jeff and my sweet Corrina, when she was 2. I realized that everyone in that picture is in Heaven. How did that happen? Mom and Dad, well they were older and that makes some sense. But my brother, Jeff, only 46. And RinaBean, my life, at only 18. All I can do is wonder why, and love and miss them all, with each and every beat of my heart. Especially my Corrina.

Almost time to KNIT...I can't wait.
