A completed project

I have completed Chalk the mouse from Simply Knitting Spring 2006. It was fun to knit up, although I had the darnest time with the arms. All I could do was make right ones. I do not know what I did wrong, but I finally just made a right one with the opposite directions. I don't know if that sentence made sense. Oh Well. I knit it for my Knitting the Classics blog. It was one of the mice from The Woman in White. It was a pretty good book, but a little long in parts.
I finished my husband's mittens. They turned out lovely. I am now going to knit myself a scarf. I have already started.
I have had a productive month. I have already knit 2 scarves, a pair of mittens and a mouse. Not bad.
I am having camera problems, but I do have a picture of my mouse.

I also have some pictures of my loved ones wearing some of my gifts.

I am still alive

I know that I have not blogged in forever. Okay a month. Things have been very strange in my life.
First I would like to reflect on leaving a job. When I finally announced I was leaving, People who I hardly worked with came over and asked me all sorts of questions. It was disturbing. I was glad when I did not have to answer the questions any more. I do not know if it was because they wanted to leave as well or if it was just morbid curiosity. It was weird.
I love my new job. It is a fantastic place to work. It is so much calmer and it has a really good cafeteria. Yeah for me!
The Girl has revealed to us that she does not believe in God and she is a right to lifer. It has been a big week.

I have been trying to get knitting done. I did not get The Girl's poncho done in time for Christmas. It is knit now, but I need to do all the fringe. Yuck!
I just finished a fan and feather scarf that I am going to send to the Red Scarf Project. I have a ton of UFOs that I need to work on, but I have a bad case of startitis. I really want to start knitting a shawl for me. I suppose I should finish at least one of the projects I have started before I go one to yet another.
I am knitting a new scarf for my husband as he lost the last one I knit him. Sigh. He definitely needs one as it has finally gotten cold and snowy here in MN.
