it's been a while since my last post....well, a lot has gone on....this week has been really weird....the ups were high, the downs was great....
let me just start with this weekend....saturday i was supposed to go to a concert in battle creek, but i was VERY VERY sick the night before (stomach flu is going around..blah!), so they sent me, i just slept for the entire day....what's worse, there's a syst on my tailbone (i know, i know....very gross) that got really infected and i couldn't sit, stand, lay, was a BIG, it was also affecting my health by bringing my temp up...SO, i went to the doctors on tuesday and he accused me of letting it go for a long time! he ACCTUALLY yelled at me.....Listen, doc, it started getting infected on SATURDAY...when the darn office is CLOSED! it's not like i let it go for weeks! so, he drained it and put me on antibiotics....and vicadin....mmmm....vicadin.....
today was very good indeed...i went again to the doc's office thinking i was going to have a surgical procedure done (him removing the syst completely), so, i took a vicadin before hand and alana drove me....when i got there, all he did was change my gauze! phew! i REALLY didn't want to go under the knife again with nothing but local anastesia (i know i spell worth a crap!) so, i wasn't in ANY pain, and, on top of that, i'm high from the meds! later on i got some really good news, but i'll have to wait to share that! and tonight, owen called!!! he's back in the states and will be here on the 15th-ish....i can't wait...hopefully my wound from the syst is healed by then....nothing more sexy than a big hole in your ass!
since this IS a knitting blog, i should update on my knitted items....
i finished chris case's scarf, started a scarf for cheryl lynn, and started a scarf for alana (which i'm almost done with) for payment for helping me out for the last couple of days! i don't know what i'd do without her!
WONDRA- i need an idea for something knit for you! do you want a scarf, wrist warmers, a hat? just gimme an idea, i'll think of the rest! (colors would be cool to!)
so, my mom said to me today that i have to be out by the end of the year! wow....i mean, i was planning on getting an appartment when i got my bills paid, but's almost like because i'm not going active duty right away, she's punishing me by kicking me out.....i need to be here until next summer..(i mean in michigan)...there's no going around that....i've got certain obligations.....but man....i dunno...mabey i'm looking to far into it...whatever....i was planning on moving out soon anyway....
well, i've got a doctor's appointment in seven hours and i still need to go to bed! i'll talk coming as soon as i find my camera!

Monday, August 14, 2006 goodies

i got a burst of creativity last night...(while watching project runway, of course!)
i give you my furry muff:
(crappy photos, you can't see detail...not that there is much...)

buttons say "militaires equipements"

alana's VERY FIRST project!!!
the bottom part is the first you can see, it got a lot better!

Alana's second project-a green and white scarf for her brother....
much better job than the pink dishcloth from hell....
all the rows are even...i'm very proud of her! (and i taught her!! yay!)

so there you have it...what i've been up!

i finished the first glove!! it turned out really nice....i still need to weave the ends in though, but i'm going to grayling for three days, so i'll do that and knit the other glove while i'm there!

close up of cables on bottom edge

a few hats i did before i went to basic

i ripped the white and green one out and restarted it because it was WAY to big...i had to pull it tight in the back for the pic...but other than that, i liked the way it looked, so i'm definetly going to re knit it....

yay! my images were successfully uploaded!!! now i can post pics of my garter!!!

here's what it looks like (ends not weaved in and no ribbon)

and here's a pic to show how big the hook was! it was very very very tiny, but, i was so into it that it only took about three hours to crochet!

and now for updates of my kittens:
Luna, Riddick, and Capt. Jack Sparrow (in that order from top to bottom)

Riddick and Capt. Jack Sparrow
(don't they look like a heart?)

Luna and Leelu (leelu is the white one...her name is about to change...)
i call this pic yin yang....

There's one more kitten i don't have a pic of for some reason! i don't know why! he looks like luna (the grey one) but with a longer stub for a tail and no spot on hir chin....(btw...luna, leelu, and snape (the other grey one) are all minx which are born without tails)

ok, so i went to the blogger help site and looked for problems with the pics uploading.....this is what i found:

"Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Some users are noticing problems with photo uploading timing out or taking a very long time to respond. We're looking into this and will post an update when there is more information."

now, this is a big problem especially with blogs like mine where a big part of the blog revolves around pics....there have been other issues that have come up after this particular one that have already been resolved....i'm starting to get a little impatient....for now, i'll just take a deep breath, and count to ten, and hope my head doesn't explode!
