Oh dear...

I finished the scarf I'd been working on- knitting a bit here and there. The only problem now is, I have really nothing else going on, knitting-wise. Eek! I guess I will pick up the bucket hat once again, as the weather is finally getting nice and cool enough for a felted wool hat. I am still struggling with the baby hat to match the baby cardigan but hope to have lots of knitting time this weekend to conquer it. Maybe I will even have the chance to cast on for the Woolspun turtleneck that I've been planning to make for about a year now. What I really need to do this weekend is some wedding planning stuff, which I view as an absolute chore. After almost 10 months, I finally got around to booking a location, and with a year to go before the wedding, I should really be looking at bands and photographers. But I don't want to. My advice to any brides out there- hire a wedding planner!

Wow, the scarf looks beyond amazing! Such a model, you are, having a great picture with a white background! (P.S. I LOVE The Shining!)

I also did not care for wedding planning when my DH and I got married last year. I really loathed it. I was excited to get married, but the actual wedding part didn't do it for me. Too many other people involved, and too much stress! I wish you the best of luck with your planning. If you're ever looking for inspiration, has message boards and the brides there have oodles of unique and creative ideas.

P.S. I really like your middle name! How do you say it?

Thanks girls for your kind comments! Lisa- it's pronounced like "la-ray" but with the emphasis on the second syllable. Don't ask me how my parents dreamed this up- I have no idea! Jane- the baby hat is going slowly. Very slowly. But thanks for asking :) Mayflwr- thanks, I love the addis too- and how cute are you in your un-gigi! And I was a metals major with an art history minor in college too!

how fabulous!!!! that's so exciting! what are you doing now? I don't plan to continue with art (it's kinda wearing my out..hehe)

I haven't met another knitter (or anyone in general for that matter) outside tech that is majoring (or majored) in metals! how cool!
