On my way to work every morning I listen to the radio. Now I listen for the music not the crappy dj's (but that is for another Tuesday). So there I was singing and dancing in the car when a new song came on. I am grooving to the music when I hear sirens. Now I think I am being pulled over due to the fact that I may drive sporadically when dancing and singing to the music so I slow down, look in all the mirrors waiting for the cop to pull me over and bust me. Then suddenly the sirens fade and I realize that it was in the music.
Why or why do you musicians put sirens in your music? It gives us 'normal' folk a small heartache every time we hear your song. I know you are just expressing yourself through the art of mustic but I just don't want to freak out every time your song comes on the radio so please stop putting them in the background.
Now you may be saying to yourself, Kayla, you have to just remember that there is sirens in that song after hearing it about five hundred times on the radio. But I tell you now that no matter how many times that I hear a particular song I never ever remember that it has sirens in the background. So maybe it is just me but now it is another one of my pet peeves.

Although I live in the wonderful state of Oregon, have a great job and am a fabulous knitter the world turned on me yesterday. I know it is hard to believe but on thing after another is turning to poo. It all started with my dogs, both of them, deciding yesterday evening that life would not be complete without a good roll in dead deer. Now I know what you are thinking wow that smell must have been horrible and you would be right. I have never smelt something that vial in...forever.
You will be glad to know that we did wash them and they smell like man soap. (sorry that is all we had) and after washing anything they may have touched the smell is gone...Yippee!!

The gloves themselves were leather with the finger tips cut off. Now it might not have been the most fashionable article of clothing he owned but for some reason I will always remember the hammer gloves.
So when it came into fashion to have mitts (fingerless gloves for you who do not know) I had to knit them and tonight I finished my first one.
Pattern: Fingerless Garter mitts from
Oneskein by: Leigh Radford
Yarn: Natures Palette
Please ignore my man hands. Yes that is right I have man hands and I am sensitive about it. I know it would not seem like that with me posting this for the world to see but there it is...my hands are so big that I had to adjust the patten to fit my man hands...why I do not have dainty fingers I will never know. I will always envy you people with little fingers...
The only complaint is because I am a new knitter (only a few months now) it is not a perfect fit. In the future I will adjust my adjustments for fewer rows so they are a tad tighter but since that is the only thing that went wrong who can complain.
Any who moving on. I really love these. I love them so much that I am typing with one on right now (because I only have one done)...well I am off to cash on its mate so I can fulfill my childhood dreams of having my very own pair of hammer gloves (pink of course)

To start out the weekend we went to Bergs Ski and Snowboard shop here in town. We went in to talk about Cross Country Skies. We are looking at getting the Orbiter by Fisher. However, by the time we left we had gotten new downhill skies. I do not know how that happened except that the sales guy was great. The picture is to come...
Then when we got home I rushed to the mail box and found my new yarn. Now the description said it was a light tan color but it is green. My disappointment is huge but it will still turn out to be a great piece. I think I am going to make this. I hope it comes out as good as in the pictures.
I also started dad's socks...I worked my fingers to the bone and I have hardly gotten ahead. I went to the LYS and got some man color yarn to start. (however due to the selection I am relaying on the fact that he is color blind to help me out...there may be some orange involved in the colorway). I have pictures but due to the pathetic nature of my progress it will have to wait until next time...
So to wrap this up I stated two new projects and bought two new sets of downhill skies...what is wrong with me...I must have to much time on my hands...
P.S. I have not started on any Christmas presents yet...I might be in trouble. I do not think that I will be able to knit them. I need tobecome a little better at the whole knitting thing before I venture on a whole round of presents...but good news is we are starting to look for tickets to come home...if anyone sees a good deal let us know.

The site is made up of several individuals all selling there own handmade goods. It has everything too. So now I can get my craft fair fix without having to fight the crowds.
I really feel like this has been around forever and I had no idea about it. If you have not guessed it by now I am not the most savvy Internet person. I think I am still a little scared I am going to go to a bad site and then my mom is going to find our and I am going to be in trouble.
Any who...Please go and check it out...seriously one of the best sites ever...

Then suddenly one of my top ten biggest questions of all time sprang up and hit me in the butt...why the hell do restaurants never post the damn price of beer. Just in case you are thinking it is not on the regular menu but on the bar menu I looked both places...
So what is a girl to do about this great question...well look like cheap and ask the waiter how much it costs. Seriously if I am going to have to do this every time we go out to eat and avoid my husbands six dollar beer freak out (happened two weeks ago and an unnamed national restaurant) then I better grow thicker skin or start a petition...
So what do you think my dear one reader would you sign a petition with me to get the corporate heads to put the price of beer on the menu??
