You are never too young to develop breast cancer!
Breast Self-Exam should begin by the age of twenty.
Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival.
Well, what are you waiting for!?!?
GO CHECK YOUR BOOBIES!!!

We need to talk. I have been doing a lot of thinking and I just don't think this is going to work out between us. I tried really I did. I adjusted needle size, I messed with the colors, and I even ripped and started over again. I just think at this time it would be best if we went our separate ways. Please don't think Rowan, Noro, or Malabrigo put me up to this. It has nothing to do with them.
Trust me when I say........

No that's not true. While I would not waste yarn on this, I did think it was rather funny. I was in dire need of some potty humor today and it came in the form of Mr. Toilet Paper Scarf.
The pattern is a free pattern on Mochimochi's Blog.
Don't laugh.....for if you do.....you just might receive one of these for
(insert your holiday of choice).

We woke up to some white stuff falling from the sky. About an hour later it was really coming down. I have no idea how much we are supposed to get but I am crossing my fingers for a snow day tomorrow. Hey one can wish! I have my snowy Sunday uniform on......jammies. The fireplace will be turned on. The coffee pot is brewing away. Oh yes and let's not forget the most important thing......KNITTING!!! Lots and lots of knitting.

One of the packages was from my FiberFlix partner Jennifer aka Craftylilly. I could barely contain myself as I ripped open the package.
She totally SPOILED ME!!!!
Last but not least.....I got some AWESOME stitch markers.
I got the Foo Fighters cranked up on the stereo and I am working my hardest at getting the turtleneck/shrug done.
I did cast on for the Halloween Mystery Shawl because I am three weeks behind on that. So I need to haul some major ass on that.

After two unsuccessful tries at getting into the Knitters Coffee Swap.....both times I missed the deadline to sign up by meer days. I finally made it in. HOORAY!!!! I do NOT take my coffee as seriously as some people do.....and man are they serious. However I do enjoy a good cup of coffee but only when the seasons turn chilly. Yup you heard right.....I only drink "hot drinks" in the fall and winter. Once it warms up the hot drinks are put to rest (that includes any and all soup items as well.) What can I say I am a coffee/caffeine poser.
1. Whole bean or ground? Both are welcome
2. Fully-loaded or decaf? Decaf. (Caffeine makes me feel very sick.)
3. Regular or flavored? Flavored with a capital "F"
4. How do you drink your coffee? Two Sweet & Low's and some French Vanilla Creamer.
5. Favorite coffee ever? I don't remember the brand but it was Hot Buttered Rum
6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do? I'm easy...any old bean will do.
7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee? A slice of pound cake.
8. Anything else about your coffee preferences? None that I can think of.
9. Yarn/fiber you love? Everything BUT....see #10.
10. Yarn/fiber you hate? Acrylic. The word alone gives me the shivers.
11. What's on your needles? HAAAA what isn't on my needles?
12. Favorite colors? Blue, Green, Pink, and Brown.
13. Allergies? Bananas. Not really....I just dislike them immensely.
14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest? I can't wait to find out who my partner is!!!

I managed to get my butt down to the local craft store and purchase some cute fabric for my candy corn bag. I was really hoping to find white fabric with candy corns on it.....but it is Halloween and white does not seem to be the color for this candy filled holiday. Gee big surprise there.

We have both agreed it is best if we go our separate ways for the night.
