Since I'm not a computer genius(I don't even know if that's spelled right) I didnt add the nail pictures so from a couple of months back until now,The Nails!

I really need help

I made a promise to myself to blog on a regular basis,but no one reads its because I'm too much of a coward to put a link to it anywhere. But today will be the first day of the rest of my life (sounding like any recovering alcoholic) I will blog more!

Now I have new yarn that I got when I was out of town at my mothers right before Christmas (yes this should have be blogged about weeks ago) and I have a few finished projects and more nail pictures of course.But before all that in my nightly addiction to reading blogs(something that keeps me from knitting) one of my favorites is having a contest so in the spirit of trying to win something I put a link to her blog here. Anyone that drinks and knits is alright with me,I'm afraid with my teetotaling behind I'd pass out and impale myself on the needles!
So now to gratuitous pictures. My niece Robin in the skirt I made her. Big Mexico yarn,Collinette Jitterbug and STR heavyweight.Thuja socks in LL worsted weight.Last but not least Brandon's Fake Fairisle Cap

What Yvonne Means

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.
You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

You are very hyper. You never slow down, even when it's killing you.
You're the type of person who can be a workaholic during the day... and still have the energy to party all night.
Your energy is definitely a magnet for those around you. People are addicted to your vibe.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
