September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

There color is teal, so I am working on a teal hat to put in the store window! Then I am going to work on something else that's teal. Anyone else in the mood for teal?

Its been so long...

I have totally been slacking on posting. I had a hand injury way back last February and knitting really took a hiatus, and posting on the blog has certainly suffered more than usual. I'm at home with a cold today so hopefully I can start a new streak of blogging.
I've been knitting some fall pumpkins


that's a cell phone picture they look much cuter in real life!

Apolo Ohno

Apolo Ohno recently came to my work and we all had the opportunity to get our picture taken with him and ask him questions.
I stood in line debating on if I should ask him to pose with Knitted Audrey Hepburn (KAH) or not. Not everyone would ask an Olympic gold medalist to hold a knitted doll in front of all their co-workers. He was actually really great about it and asked who she was. Everyone has commented that my picture is the only one where he looks like he is genuinely smiling. I'm choosing not to believe it's because he thinks I'm crazy!

Annemor Sunbo

Last Saturday I had the change to take a Setesdal embroidery class with Annemor Sundbo, it was great. The picture above is me and Annemor and Knitted Audrey Hepburn (KAH). The class was hosted by the Windy City Knitting Guild. I wish there meetings weren't mostly in the city.
I haven't been knitting that much lately my hands have been hurting. I went to see the Orthopedic specialist today and the news wasn't that bad, but I do have tendinitis in both hands and in my left wrist.
I have some physical therapy to do and hopefully that will help and I can get some more knitting done.

So I've been very neglectful of my blog. I've been doing a lot of Christmas knitting so not too much that I can post about.
But I did set a new goal starting today to save $30,000 using coupons. When I get to my $30,000 goal I will use the money to buy a Camaro. If I want to do this in a year I would need to save $77/day - so more than likely this will take me more than a year.
I installed a ticker at the bottom of my page to help track my savings. I collected $2.50 this morning so I am on my way!

One Thing I bought at Sock Summit

Was this really great knitted rug by Lantern Moon. It proved you can fit a rug in carry-on luggage : )
I think if I could have I would have bought 2.
For $10 it was a great deal!
