I've been tagged ~ people I Admire

First, I'll have to break the rules and talk about 3 people the I would most like to sit with, and thank for their service to humanity. Then I'll somewhat follow the rule and list people I admire. ~Mother Theresa, for her selfless giving to the poor, the people who needed her most. She served with humility. She changed our world with her gift of love. ~His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, the grace and dignity to which he has shared his beliefs; and as with Mother Theresa, his dedication to his convictions. ~Jimmy Carter, for his service--a man who changes the world each day by helping others with his own hands through habitat for humanity. People I admire & make my life a better one. Everyone that knows me will not have to guess who would be front & center-- My husband. To say that I admire him is an understatement, selfless to his very core (Friends call St. Rick--behind his back ;-) He worked two jobs to put me through grad sch.--never complained. Works as a Special Education Teacher for the Severe and Profoundly Mentally handicapped, has dedicated his life to making theirs a better one and educating others about their capabilities. His loyality and love for his family his unending. My friends who have stood by me through horrible bouts of Restless Leg Syndrome--have listened, offered help and cheered me on, loved me & supported my talents with words of encouragement. And helped me be a better mother. To my son, who has taught me more about myself--than I ever imagined, how to be selfless, how to make mistakes, learn from them and move on. He's taught me that it's not hard to remember what's important-----in this crazy world--it's quite simple --give love & reap the rewards! (He's 3-smart guy ;- uh! all that wisdom!) And my Mother who taught me the value perseverance & hardwork. Now my turn to tag! ummm... I'll post my tag asap! (need to think this over ;-)! I was tagged by Kelly- http://kellyshults.blogspot.com/

Hourglass!

I checked my gauge recently and came up with 24 =4"--eeeks! (The gauge should be 19 = 4")I took it off the needles & tried it on--and it fit, as it should (style wise) --but would of liked a little more room. I'm just darn pleased it fits! I learned a valuable lesson here--swatch in the round. The gauge changes because of those pesty purls! Posted by Picasa

My very own toe up sock!

I'm celebrating my recovery from a horrid 3 weeks of 24-7 restless leg syndrome by knitting some Toe up socks. I used the turkish Cast on (c.o. 24 sts. --less would have been better, a little on the big side) and am using 2 circulars. I am using Hellchick's pattern http://www.hellchick.net/. It's a great basic pattern that you can personalize. The yarn is knitpicks "Dancing" (I forget the exact color) but am not crazy about the color mixture--yellow, orange and red-- uhggg. I love the that it is a cotton yarn with a little nylon mixed in~~I will definitely buy more of the "Dancing" but in a different color. Posted by Picasa
