I-Cord is DONE!!

Yes you see it right. The I-cord for the rug is done. Finally done. Whooo Hooooo!!! I am sure you heard the big sigh of relief once I was finished.

I can safely say that it is the most I-cord that I have ever knit. I don't think that I ever want to knit that much ever again. Granted it was great mindless knitting that I could do pretty much any where at any time, but a person can only do so much mindless knitting before she becomes mindless herself. So needless to say I am glad that part of it is finished.

Here we have the massive ball of I-cord and the yarn that I am going to sew it together with.

Since I have never sewn I-cord together into a rug I am not sure what to expect. I hope that it goes smoothly, but with my luck it will be nothing but problems and I will have a pretty I-cord ball for decoration. I had said earlier that if it doesn't work I am stringing it up for Christmas as my form of mistletoe.

Wish me luck. I think I am going to need all that I can get.

Still Working on the I-Cord

I am still working on the I-cord for my rug. Man I don't think it will ever end. I am beginning to question if I am really sane.

I wound it into a ball to keep it some what more manageable. It was beginning to get out of control. James loves it just that much more now that it is in ball form. Every time he walks by it he pats it and says "Ahhhhh" or he will hug it and say "Ahhhh ball". He is so goofy. I love the fact that he is so fascinated by it and loves yarn. Gotta start them early. ;)

One day in the future I will be finished with the I-Cord and will get to have the fun adventure of sewing it all together. I hope that it isn't as much of a pain as I am expecting it to be.

The BIG 30

This past Monday night there was a surprise party for Christina. She had no clue that it had been in the works for a while and was quite surprised.


There was quite a good turn out. Of course we had plenty of yummy food. We just can't have a pert without all the food. Normally we indulge on the tasty goodness that our stomachs are hurting. Did you know that one's stomach can only stretch so far before it threatens to explode: :) Here are some pictures of the turn out, food and the beautiful cake.

It seemed that everyone had a great time and it was just about to get better. In comes Elmer. He was a singing telegram for Christina from our Dear Sara. Boy was he funny! It didn't seem that anyone knew exactly what he was going to do. I heard one say that he was supposed to strip. AHHHHHHHHHH!!! Please NO!!! Thank God that wasn't the case. It was bad enough to see the shorts. I can say that the guy did a great job ad was freaking hysterical. Just look at Christina's face, she was doubled over with laughter.

Here we have the stairway to a sugar coma. LOL

I had a great time and it sounded like everyone else did too. It is always fun to get together with your fellow knitters and if a party breaks out then that is even better.
