A New Obsession

I've purchased a few containers of beads for some of Annelise's miscellaneous school projects and I have used some just to put on some knitting projects. I learned how to place beads from Laura Nelkin's blog.

Tasty Find

I bought this chocolate and chili sauce at Fresh and Easy. It comes very thick and you have to put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and just pour it over your icecream. I used a tablespoon of it yesterday for some chicken with chile colorado so it tasted a bit like mole.

Mystery Shawl

Wow, the mystery shawl is done and I think the colors I picked are very pretty and it is very long. I'm afraid to completely soak it and block it because of the way the yarn is made. It's very wooly, so I just sprayed it and used my fingers to stretch it and it has alot of stretch.

It's coming along but I think a few more spritz and tugs and a few pins going around the dips will be better.

When I started to knit this shawl at the yarn store I had left my beads at home so I guess if I want to add some now I will have to sew them on with regular thread.
I have about 45 of these left over from Annelise's headband project - which we never finished.

Dog Goes Crazy from Thunder

My dogs hate the sound of thunder and this is what happened the other day when Nina got out of control. I haven't been able to get my husband to take down the topsy turvies and my dog did it in one evening.

I'm Going to School

I don't have any pictures of anything related to the title of this post. But as it states, I am now oficially enrolled in the Fall 2012 session of Crafton Hills College in Yucaipa, Ca. It was so easy from the registration, assessment, kick-off session for this program they put me in called Left Lane Project - to help me do better in school. Tomorrow I go for a 2 week Summer Bridge tutoring session from 9 -12 in the morning.
