Christmas came and Christmas went,3 days in a row

Day 1 (Christmas eve): work from 12 to 6:30 go to sister #3's house and disperse presents to the 3 B's, making Stu never want to have children. His exact words were " Phicial law states that 1 person can be in no more that one place at once. BULL S***T!!!!THOSE THINGS WERE EVERYWHERE!!!!!"

Day 2(Christmas): Visit sister #2's house for Christmas feast and disperse more Christmas presants to 2 more ,silghtly better behaved childern. Stu is still insisting that we will never have children.

Day 3(day after Christmas): We visit Stu's folks, disperse more Christmas presants.Stu tells him mother we will never give her grandchildren, making her almost cry.(I don't like his mother, this was a very satisfactory reaction for me because she treats me as though I am her grandchild machine.Stu is an only child,therefor I'm her only chance at grandchilden. I'm not even 20 yet. I'm not having kids until this bitch no longer walks this earth, or drives her scooter while I'm at it.She pisses me off that bad!)
I sit back and say nothing, but I'm giggling with glee inside.

I want kids, I really do, but not while his parents are alive.They torture me enough, I don't want to bring kids into it.His dad is 80 and his mom almost 70, I'm hoping we wont have to wait long.

Oh yea, and while I'm at it sis#1 announced she is fileing for divorce. Her husband thinks he's found something better so she's letting him have it.
There are 2 kids in the mix, a 9 year old daughter that my sis had from another relationship and a 3 year old boy that they had togeather.

Not any knitting, just need to vent.Camera cord still gone,considering getting a new camera with tax returns.

No camera cord....

I acually had photo content today but my camera cord is gone to the way of the Gnomes or something like that.

I'm knitting Stu a scarf for christmas complete with a skull and crossbone knit into one end.
It's awesome, I already have the colorwork done, that's what I took the picture of.
I finished 1 pair of baby booties that makes 2 down 1 to go. YAY ME!
The last pair is on the needles, 1st one is down to the toe. I'll finish them over my weekend.
I also got some reminents of X-Mas material that I want to turn into a small blanket for future baby reserves.

I finished a baby sweater down to putting on the buttons that I forgot at home.

Well, I might post tomorrow with pictures if I find a cord at home.

Update on wips and baby gifts

Well, one of the pregger girls at work quit, so I'm not knitting her anything. I finished a baby blanket for one of the ladys due in may, a set of baby socks is also complete and another set cast on and down to the heal turn on the first one. I will probally complete the pair tomorrow.
Right now I'm catching up reading blogs and working on my sweater. Simple stocknette in the round, perfect space out knitting.
It's going very quickly, already going into my 2nd skein.
It's being knitted in Lion Brand Wool ease, blue heather on size 9 needles, pattern, none but by the seat of my pants design.
9 inches of a planed 24 already knit.
I only work on it at my folks where I do the bulk of my online reading.
I have a compuiter at my house, but Stu is usually using it so I wait and then knit like all heck on my sweater once a week and I see alot of progress even though I'm not working on it constantly.

I'll have photos someday, it snowed over the weekend and is fairly gloomy, not good photo taking weather.

Baby Gifts

Many people at work are expecting babys in the next few months and I'm up to my eye balls in crocheting/knitting baby gifts. 2 of the ladys I'm perticuarly close with are getting blankets and the other 3 are getting hat/bootie sets - that I havn't started yet- but I digress.
I've also have gotten orders for 2 pairs of baby booties/socks that I need to complete in the next week.
1 of the blankets is almost done, 1 I started tonight ( the blankets are giant granny squares) and I havn't started on any of the others.
The blankets both need to be done by the end of april,or the baby showers, when ever they may be. The first baby due is in December,then 1 in Febuary, 1 in April and 2 in may.
I just need to sit down and get it done. I'm thinking this week end will be filled with hat and bootie crocheting.
I also want to make a few extras for charity after the gift crocheting is done.
We will see, we will see......
