Knitting photos

Oh dear... I just realized that I didn't get a shot of my mom's camera bag that I knitted before I gave it to her this weekend. Oh well...
However, I did get a few photos of other knitting projects!

Bibs... I seem to make these for all the babies:

And hats! You'll have to excuse the elongated shape of them... I put them on a camera lens to take the photos so they wouldn't just be flat...
The Who Hat is just like mine only much smaller!

This little ribbed hat can be found here and was super easy and quick to make!

I still need to take pictures of my purple button hat... and I'm still working on a baby blanket. Blankets seem to take forever!!

Weeeeee!!!! And May a bit early.

I'm going to NYC! For the FIRST time EVER! For the 4th of July weekend!!
And I get to see my friend Susan whom I haven't seen in 10 years! For the occasion, she is going to arrange for fireworks over the city! ; )

This summer is looking to be filled with mini vacays. I'm going to Fort Myers (SW Florida for those not familiar) this weekend... my parents are down there all week staying in the condo (I used to live there and we bought it then but I moved so the 'rents kept it and actually plan to retire there eventually). And in August I am planning a trip to the Kansas City suburbs to visit my new niece. She'll be joining the outside world sometime in mid-July (Joni's due date is July 12th)!

Books... I've been a slacker this month:
Artemis Fowl
Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident
Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code
Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception
All by Eoin Colfer. There are two more books in the series so far and I have them both checked out from the library and sitting on my shelf at home. I finished The Opal Deception at lunch today. : )

Circuit training classes are now over - the last class was last week. I spent that week only doing arms though because I injured my knee via my IT band, which apparently is a muscle that runs up the outside of one's thigh. The instuctor didn't have us properly stretching after class and although I was doing it on my own, I guess I wasn't getting that muscle. So it tightened up and screwed with my knee. I've been going to therapy for it and I'm no longer limping. Whew.

Aqua aerobics start this week. I haven't completely decided if I'm going to do it. Someone told me it's all in the deep end of the pool and I don't really see myself treading water AND working out for an hour. I might drown! However, they are offering a free trial class because the signups were low so I'll check it out before I sign up. It's twice the cost that circuit training was so I'm not willing to spend the money just to find out that I don't like it.

I have some knitting to share finally but I need to take pictures first. Maybe I'll do that tonight!

Oh... and I almost forgot! Chris and I will be married for two years on May 31st!
