Just a quick post to say I am still alive. I had the cold or the flu not quite sure, but still getting over the bug that bit me. I have not picked up my pointy sticks sent my last post UHHHHH (that's the sound of me pulling out my hair).Why do we get sick?? even when we eat right, exercise follow all the rules about keeping our bodies in tip top condition, we still get the cold or the flu (Uhhhhhhh). So maybe we should just sit on our sofa's with our knitting (of course) and pig out on chocolate and cheesecake and drink loads of pop and chocolate milkshakes. I wonder then will our colds and other illnesses be any sweeter?(ok ok end of mad rant).
By the way did anyone know that there is a group for Ravelry on Facebook ?
Well that's it probably wasn't worth posting about but wat the heck. Have a terrific evening.

A few weeks ago a friend sent me an email with a picture of a woman posing with lots of attitude ans the words were written next to her "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it" well I am a big girl so I have decided this will be my motto when it comes to my knitting so every time I feel like giving up I will recite this.
Here are a few progress shots of my journey to Entrelac they are a few errors when I picked up my sts so when I am doing the real square I wouldn't repeat those errors.
Have a good Night!!

Moving on. I was just over on KH and read a post that made my day someone posted that she enjoyed my blog (huge grin on my face) can you beleive it? Someone likes my ramblings (Yeah).
This is the month of March and I have been eagerly awaiting the March square from the afghan Kal I am doing on KH and to my surprise this month's stitch is Entrelac ? I didn't have a clue what it was so I had to do some research. It is a beautiful design and I am feeling quite overwhelmed at it but I am ready for a challenge no more just sitting around and knitting st st and garter st I am going forth trying new and different things even if I frog a few times. I have found a tutorials online which has made it seem not as difficult as I first thought. Here are the links if anyone plans on giving it a try.Yarn Path and Knitty Otter they are others but these are the ones I am using. for more information you can check out the forum over on KH. I am using this pattern from knitting-and.com
This is how far I have gotten after a few minutes of casting on, but I am stuck here because I need to change colors but this pattern does not say when to change colors, so if anyone help let me know.Here is a pic of where I am finish the base triangles an getting ready to move onto the 2 row of the pattern.
Have a great day Knitsibs.
