Happy Birthday Kiona!!!!

Happy 1st birthday my sweet little niece Kiona. You are such a sweet little girl. You're pretty like your mommy. I hope you enjoyed your party and your cake. I love you very much xoxo
Such a beautiful child.
On another note- had shot today and arm is already feeling much better. Md did 2 shots of lidocaine followed by 2 shot of depomedrol. The second spot he did was most certainly the more painful area. So now, ice/rest/nsaid and hopefully next week I will be back to knitting. I have a pattern drawn up that I can't wait to start. Inspired by an article in Interweave's Felting mag, I have purchased (shhh-broke my yarn fast) some black cascade 220. I have mapped out a pattern an am going to attempt to embroider flowers onto blobs of color and then felt it-I believe the woman's name is Marni? she has a website tinkknit? or something of that sort. Anyhow I love her flower market bag and want to give something smaller a whirl. Will keep you posted on progress. I am also up to 3-4 spinning classes per week. So you figure, the weight, it must be melting off, right? uh, nope, not yet. But as far as I'm concerned this means full out and out war. I WILL lose weight. I will just add an additional day of cardio in there somewhere.

Where have I been????

Ohhhh Over at Ravelry........Very addictive. Very fun!!!! So most of my time online lately has been playing around there. Yeah, that's it...It's like a knitter's playground. So many new friends to play with and share projects. Groups to join, stuff to see. I have been spending way too much time online, H is starting to get antsy because I'm hogging the computer. In other news....My arm is hurting BAD. I finally went to the doctor because it has been 2 months now. It's bursitis in the elbow. I cannot tell you the last time I slept through the night, the pain is just horrible. So next week we're doing the steroid shot in the elbow. I'm not a big fan of medicine, but, I can no longer take it. I have been doing some knitting, but I think it's at a price... So I only have one new project to share...

It's called Carrie, from Rowan's little book of big accesories. It was super fun to knit because it uses short rows and It was my first time doing them. Guess what.... I actually got it right the first time for a change, no frogging involved!!!!
