New Season Old Project

With the arrival of Fall I could not think of a better project to try and finish than good ole Crapotis. Slowly but surely she is coming along.

Extreme Vacation

We are back from our vacation in Moab, Utah. We went there for The Land Rover National Rally. I will not bore you with a million pictures. ...just a few.

There were many long, hot days of off-roading. I was not able to get any "Extreme Knitting" done because the trails were just too crazy. Not to mention the only knitting project I brought with me was the Gumdrop Sock. Size 1 DPN's and a crazy bumpy, tippy trail don't mix. Besides you know what will happen if I have to rip out that sock again. I don't even want to think about it.

We did manage to get a crap load of Geocaching done in Moab. While out exploring we crossed paths with stink bugs, lizards, a snake, a large spider, several bees, and a shit load of annoying gnats.

Two Down

Two more down. Two to go!

Ghost Hunting: True Stories of Unexplained Phenomena from The Atlantic Paranormal Society by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson. This was a really quick read. I love these guys! If you love their show, "Ghost Hunters" than you will love this book.

I am currently deep into Duma Key by my man Stephen King. I am past the halfway point and can't get enough of it. This is a good one.

Finished With a Capital "F"

The "Ancient Chinese Secret" is finished.

*There is no such pattern by the name of "Ancient Chinese Secret". All names have been changed to protect the innocent. I will explain everything in due time. Be patient patient.

Why Yes...

This is a knitting blog!

I am going to try to get my Mr. Greenjeans done so I can start wearing it. I am so close to done on this one. I just need to focus. The sad thing is it should take no more than an hour. Can you say LAME?

Pretty little projects all in a row. Socks, Mr. Greenjeans, Crapotis, etc.

Let's talk socks. Here they are in all their glory...the bane of my existence. The Gumdrop socks have been going quite smoothly this time around. Third times a charm. Or is it the fourth or fifth? Ah crap!

2008 One Book, One Denver Selection

2008 marks the fifth year of One Book, One Denver, Mayor John Hickenlooper's citywide book club created to build community and encourage people to read. Denver citizens, young and old, are invited to join others in the shared experience of reading the same book and participating in fun activities through October.

Yes, I will be joining in once again this year.

Meet the Author!

I went down to my favorite book store to meet local author Jeanne Stein, the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers 2008 “Writer of the Year". She read from her newest Anna Strong vampire novel "Legacy". This is the fourth in the series. She did mention that the fifth book is already in her publishers hands. She is currently working on number six and there will be two more after that.

She was so sweet she baked brownies for everyone. She also signed all four of my books. So we of course love her!

Foo Freakin Tastic!

Last night HHBL and I went to see the Foo Fighters at Red Rocks.
They were AMAZING!

Dave Grohl has the most amazing voice!

They put on one hell of a show I highly recommend seeing them if you have a chance.

Ancient Chinese Secret

Ancient Chinese Secret...

She is done!

Stay tuned for pictures.

One Down...

One down. Four to go.

I have had this book sitting on my shelf for years. I finally had a chance to read it for the R.I.P Challenge. I liked it. I did not find it to be a scary book but then I had to keep reminding myself it was written for a much younger audience. Would I recommend it? Yes.

Yet Another Movie - The Dark Knight

Yesterday we went to see The Dark Knight. I figured since we are probably the last people on the Earth to see it that the theatre would be empty. Wrong! Either we are not the last people to see it or it is just that good that people went to see it again. I think it could very well have been the second choice. The movie was awesome! Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker was incredible. He really was an amazing actor.

I highly recommend seeing it and we will be owning this one on DVD.
