March Madness Gets Ugly

After alot of trash talking about college basketball at work we had an escalation in the workplace harrassment. My co-worker who has the office next door is a UNC graduate and has the ugly Tarheel stuff all over her office. When she was out of the office I "borrowed" her Ram and made him a Duke shirt. It took her a few days to notice but when she did she was not pleased. The next day I came in to find my door decorated in Tarheel style. That was painful for this Duke fan. The third picture is the memorial my co-workers erected outside my office door when Duke lost. It is hard to see in the picture but the little black box is a coffin with a Duke logo in it. There was music and a guest sign in book. Apparently Oprah and RuPaul came by but I missed them. I am trying to think of an appropriate payback! War is HELL!

Old knitter learns new trick

I love knitting socks but have always done the top down construction. For years I have wanted to challenge myself to try toe up. Finally did it. Mastered Judy's Magic Cast On and am moving along. I am going to Soxperience in April in Chincoteague and will be taking classes with Wendy Johnson. She has written two books on toe-up socks. I am ridiculously excited to be spending the weekend in this beautiful place with DH and taking sock knitting classes.

Falling Hard

Oh my goodness! I have fallen in love! I bought these Signature dpns from a fellow raveler to try them. Fiday night I did the above little swatch and by Saturday was doing a major destash to fund more dpns. The Stilleto (gotta love that name) points are killer sharp and they are made of aircraft grade aluminum. I am not just knitting socks here people...this is some high tech precision *&^@ we got going here! I may never knit anything but socks again!
