Knitting Goodies!

The HR lady at work gave me a gift certificate to knitpicks for my birthday. Of course I ordered some goodies right away. I picked up Knitting Lace with Meg Swanson and the knee-sel. I think knitpicks finally figured out how to ship in a timely manner because I placed the order on friday and it arrived today! I haven't been able to watch the DVD yet because Carl has been here and I think he'd kill me if I tried to make him watch it. I did however whip out my chart for the Winter Twilight Mittens so I could try out the knee-sel. This thing is awesome!!! I hated working on patterns with charts because I could never find a place to put my pattern where I could read it and knit at the same time. But now it's just right there in front of me!! Ok I know I sound like one of those sales people on HSN or QVC or something but this is thing is freakin awesome. I think I see many more charted patterns in my future. 

Anyway, I've been waking up super early of late. OK 6 am is not super early but it is when you're 25, you live 20 minutes from work and you don't have to be there till 9am. I keep waking up at 6am bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready to start the day. Carl however, has been sleeping in so my being awake annoys him so I have taken to sneaking up to the living room and knitting or spinning. I thinke this is the perfect way to start the day. I get a little coffee from the deli across the street and say hi to my coffee guys, then I come home, pop in something good to watch and I knit or spin. Its just so wonderful. I think its starting to effect my attitude too. I've been in a rather crummy mood the last few days but after some days of early morning me time I'm starting to feel a mood shift. I'm actually a little happier anbd pleasant! I know! 

Sorry, Carl just walked in with really good cookies, I'm trying not to salivate too much on the keyboard right now. I should probably take that as a sign to leave you. Have a good night!

I haven't minded being up early lately either - it's nice to ease into the day.
