The sorting hat says that I belong in Hufflepuff!

Said Hufflepuff, "I'll teach the lot, and treat them just the same."

Hufflepuff students are friendly, fair-minded, modest, and hard-working. A well-known member was Cedric Digory.

Treading water!

Just take a deep breath and keep on kickin' and swishin'! If I start saying "No" now maybe the water will stop pouring in and I will finally be able to touch bottom. Why is it that saying "No" makes you feel like a meanie? (Rhetorical question) I pledge to improve my delegation skill starting tonight...and my anti-procrastination skills...tomorrow.

On to knitting...I actually picked up some knitting last night! Go figure! Actually I went out to Yorkshire Yarns to the Thursday night knitting meet-up and visited. This weekend I need to see how much I can get done on the charity knitting front! We are only 2 weeks away from the Breast Cancer charity sale and I can still whip out a few more items. I might just pull out Belinda's knitting machine and some sock yarn that is collecting dust and make a couple of long tubie scarves that the kids around here like so much, then I can turn my hand-knitting attentions to more detailed products. I would feel better have more to contribute...especially the tubie scarves because we can put those in the lower price bracket making it easier to accurately price the hand-knits.

I am also almost done with my HSKS 4 partner's gift!!! I have 60% of the components and the only pieces left are making the rest of the stitch markers and finishing up the sock bag. Those can be done after the sale.

Okay, back to work for me....

Time Warp

Wow! Well hello out there to all my buddies in the HSKS group!!! It will be fun doing another swap and since my downstream partner is a Ravenclaw (just like last time..go figure!) I have all sorts of ideas from the last run.

I feel like a little Hogwarts teacher tonight, it is 12:45am and I am just finishing with the final re-read of the Astronomy exams I had to write for this weekend's Science Olympiad. Now that was an unsung class in the books and movie!!!

Work has been hell and all of my knitting is all CHARITY knitting for our big BREAST CANCER CRAFT FAIR! If anyone out there in knit blog land would like to participate just drop me a line/comment and I will email you with the details. 100% of all proceeds from the sale goes directly to Breast Caner research and patient care. We love this sale! It is the week before Valentine Day so I have to get on the ball!

Cheers and thanks for all the kind thoughts! I feel 98% better since my if my immune system would kick in so I wouldn't catch every damn cold bug I would be at 100%
