Time to get back to business!

Well I guess I've taken enough of a break from my online activities lately. We're still in the process of renovating, but it's taken a *very* back seat lately after the mad rush to get the main part of it all done. I'm still knitting up a school of fish, as that's still the only project I've dug out of Alex and Lissa's room to work on. I heard a rumour that my favourite LYS is going out of business, so I will have to run down there on Friday to see if she still has the camo sock yarn I NEED for all the socks for the family for Christmas. This weekend is also staff appreciation at work, so I see LOTS of shopping getting done... hope we have the money to cover it! With luck I'll have about 90% of the Christmas shopping done this weekend... just lots of knitting, crocheting and buying for Derek left afterwards!

On an upbeat note, I'm designing again! I finally got my hands on a copy of "The Teeth of the Tiger" by Tom Clancy. I was holding out to get a hard cover version of it, but alas, I can't afford regular book store prices for it, and we don't carry much in the way of hard covers at work. I decided I wanted to make a book cover for it since it's so precious to me, and picked up some DMC Traditions thread in violet. I'm working on the cover quite a bit even though the stitch pattern I'm using is slow going. I promised myself that I wasn't going to crack open the book until the cover is done for it! One way of forcing myself to complete a design! *LOL*

Update on the baby afghan: I've found a new pattern to do thanks to my best friend, Lyz. I haven't chosen colour{s} yet, so I'll post all the details when I do. I had decided not to make another round ripple for Daryl, as I feel that that blanket was not meant to be. {I'm a big believer in fate and such.} I was so close to being finished it, and it was ruined in the fire... that wouldn't have happened if that blanket had been meant to be.

Oh well... its the start of my weekend, and I have computer and house housekeeping to do before I get to do too much in the way of fun stuff like knit fish, crochet PITA stitches in my book cover, and write the reviews on the books I have sitting here on my desk!
