Floyd voted off?

Floyd got voted off! WOW! I guess there is no predicting this years winner. Of course all of the goods are going to have to get voted off at some point because there can only be one winner unfortuneatly. I think they are going to have to change the hour at which they air this show. 8pm would be good. Not sure what's on at 8 but, it sure would be better and I would stand half a chance at seeing it.

I have been really been doing a lot of reading and watching videos lately on sock making. They all start out the same. You cast on x amount of sts (let's just say 40 sts) and then divide them up onto 3 needles (13, 13, & 14). So far so good.Now from what I can tell is that you have to knit in the round. it not be easier to use a st marker at the beginning of the row, using a circular and knit in the round that way? I know you have to work a flap for the heel but, with the st marker you know where the beginning is. Divide the sts up then. Work the flap and be done with it. Of course if it was THAT easy, this is how we all would be making socks. lol It's difficult getting the sts tight enough between the needles, so there isn't a big gap. I think I am going to have to do more investigating. There are Yahoo groups for this sort of thing I may look into. With winter coming up, I just thought it would be a neat thing to learn how to make. something new and exciting. Will keep you updated on how I make out.

I finally found my voucher for my safety glasses. I was going to get another one from work but, I knew it had to be somewhere around. Last night I looked in the car after I picked Rachel up from work and it had fallen down in between the driver seat and the console. Yeah! I think I will take a run out there today. I know it's in Fox run in Bear but, not sure where. Not far though.

Well..I guess that's about it. Whatever is getting done has to be done today. I am back to work tomorrow for a 4 day (48 hr) work week. The only part I really don't like is getting up at 3am. Once I get going it's not too bad. Good thing I am an early riser anyway.

I would really like to finish that last scarf for Millie today. If not I'll work on it at lunch over the weekend. the deadline is drawing near. It would be nice to get them there before that. :o)

Until next time...

I was so disappointed in the vote off last night.

Now you see I wasn't surprised at that. I was surprised Jane and Marie were in the bottom four. I that is because that lady judge was PMS or something. *smile* No offense meant. I'm sure they do the best they can.
