What's in a Name?

I have posts waiting to be posted. But I need pics to go with them and I am completely unmotivated to do anything once I get home from work. I haven't even knit the past two evenings. It's just WRONG!

So until I get off my bum, a little amusement for you.

Snitched from Midnight 2 Sticks:

1. YOUR GANGSTA NAME (First 3 letters of first name plus izzle)


2. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (fav color and fav animal)
Purple Camel

3. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, and current street name)
Annette Williamson

4. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name, first 3 letters of mom's maiden name)

5. YOUR SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd favorite color, favorite drink).
Yellow Martini (Mild mannered Administative Assistant by day, Cocktail swilling superhero by night. When danger rears its ugly head, the "Martini Signal" flashes in ladies rooms all across the city! Never fear, Yellow Martini is... oh... passed out.)

6. YOUR WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother's middle name)

7. YOUR GOTH NAME: (black, and the name of one your pets)
Black Katie

Katie's Perch

When I put my Christmas tree up, I had to move the table I have in my foyer to another location. The only place the table fits is in my dining room. Part of the table is in front of a window. Katie LOVED sitting there and watching whatever was going on in the pine trees on that side of the house.

I took the tree down and moved the table back to the foyer and I felt a little bad about taking away the perfect Katie perch. So I bought her a present this weekend…

It was worth every last penny… I placed her in it and she lay right down and started purring like a motor boat. Every time I turned around she was in her window hammock.

Can you tell she is totally annoyed at my intrusive picture taking?

Teaching my co-worker to knit was not only a total success, I have lured her to the dark side. Here is an e-mail message I just got from her...

"I'm officially addicted. I hope this feeling never ends…"

Now where's my toaster oven?

All sorts of cool stuff...

I joined the Briar Rose KAL. I have 1550 yards of Legacy that I want to make into a shawl from Victorian Lace Today and I'm going to need all the support I can get. What I didn't count on was prizes! I won this:
3 skeins of Sonoma! I'm so thrilled! I'm not too sure what I'm going to make with it but I can't wait to wind it up!

I also have a finish to report...

I just love the way the stitches on this scarf look.
