Yarn Along

Yay! My first Yarn Along post! I hope to participate in this each week.

This week I am starting to knit a nice warm pair of leg warmers since I like to wear skirts and that can get a bit chilly in the winter months. It's not hand spun this week. Wool Ease Chunky was on sale at Michael's this week and it was just so thick and soft and the colours are lovely autumn. I think they are going to be lovely!

Excuse Mr Zombie Kitty's foot in the picture (He was given the name zombie eye cat when he had a terrible eye infection. He is one of our barn kitties) He is always right in the center of the action when I'm outside.

I'm reading The Tale of the Body Thief by Anne Rice which is part of the Vampire Chronicles. I love them! Lestat is the all time best vampire ever. He always lands himself in terrible trouble but he has a way of getting out of those jams because he is just so darn lovable and people and other vampires are tripping over each other to help him. I'm almost done this book - I took it with me last week on a camping trip and it was perfect beach reading!

Another thing that is going on around here is that my oldest daughter is turning 18 next week!!! Zoinks!!! How did that happen? I did a little shopping today for her birthday and I got her some super kool gifts - I can't wait until next Tuesday, hee-hee!!!
