Mission: Baby Blanket

So tonight my mom brings me a bag of Caron Simply Soft and tells me she needs a baby afghan for a baby shower. OK. By the way, she needs it by the 8th. Holy crap! What is today? The 30th. That gives me 8 days (did I mention I'm working double shifts almost every day?) I can do this.
Ravelry has already been a huge help to me. I haven't filled in a ton of stuff in the notebook section, but after my mom left, Ravelry was the first place I looked for a pattern that would be super quick. Bingo! The Bubbles Baby Blanket. For anyone who still can't get into Ravelry, you can find the pattern here. This should be quick enough to finish on time and a gorgeous blanket to boot. Wish me luck.

I'm Almost In!

There are only 309 people left ahead of me in the Ravelry invitation queue. Only 309! I can't wait to get in, everyone is buzzing about Ravelry, and so far everything I've heard is good. I can't wait to see what it looks like and play with all the great features I keep hearing about. The Notebook previews look the most interesting to me, and the whole thing looks like one big community resource and place to show off. Love it, and can't wait for that invite!

What's Up Y'All?!

Wow, is it good to be connected to the Internet again. I've missed the online craft community while I was computer-less for the last two months or so. A lot has happened around here that I've missed sharing with you, too. The big news is, we finally moved! Out of our crappy housing apartment to a crappy trailer, but hey, it's a step up, right? I think so. The Munchkins, Boyfriend and I have really enjoyed living here thus far, and I think we are finally good and settled in. I'm sure there will be plenty to share about the new place later on.

After we got everything moved I had to have new wiring ran for the cable DSL, and then the computer took a visit to the fix-it guy. It is in SOOOO much better shape now. And I'm back! I'm so excited to be able to see what everyone has been up to. Drop by and let me know what you've been up to for the last two months, I'd love to catch up with everyone!

Here's a little something I thought was interesting:

Your Career Type: Artistic

You are expressive, original, and independent.

Your talents lie in your artistic abilities: creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.

You would make an excellent:

Actor - Art Teacher - Book Editor

Clothes Designer - Comedian - Composer

Dancer - DJ - Graphic Designer

Illustrator - Musician - Sculptor

The worst career options for your are conventional careers, like bank teller or secretary.

I'll be back tomorrow with more of what I've been up to while I was gone.
