I cheated on my husband Tuesday night.

Well, not really, but I feel like I did. Tuesday night I had a dream that I WAS KISSING John Zimmerman. Okay, even in the dream, I wasn't really cheating on Pea. John and I were doing a photo shoot and we had to kiss for that. His wife was right there with us, and it was all very innocent (except even in the dream, I really really liked it - so maybe not 100% innocent). I felt so guilty all day yesterday, I actually had to confess to Pea at dinner. He, of course, just laughed at me. It's not the first time I've had skater dreams, and I'm sure it won't be the last. (Usually I just dream that we're all friends - no kissing involved). He also pointed out that it was probably due to the fact that I've been stalking this eBay auction. Oh, if I wasn't jobless, the bidding I would do!!!

Ugh, I just looked out the window and noticed it is snowing. YUCK!!!! Good thing I wasn't planning on going out today.

Anyway, it's a new month. March is very exciting, because it's the kick-off to Project Spectrum!!! This month is red and pink. I'd like to complete at least two projects each month, one knitted and one using another craft medium. My knitted project for March will be my Sunrise Circle Jacket, which is currently in swatching mode. I'll probably cast on tonight, while (hopefully!!) watching his hotness win Skating with Celebrities. (You do know I mean John, not Carson, right???)

My second project this month will be sewing some new fleece pajamas. I got THE CUTEST fabric at Jo-Anns!! I just couldn't resist the sheep. I haven't done much sewing in quite a few years, and I'm so glad Lolly gave me the kick I needed to get back into it. THANK YOU, LOLLY!!! Pajamas seemed like a good project to start on, because it's okay if there are a few mistakes. I'm not going to wear them in public or anything. Although I have been known to wear PJ's to our friend Barb's house on New Years Eve!!!

I did finish my scarf yesterday, but the progress bar remains at 99% because I need to block it. So my next post should have a FO picture!! I've decided to try to keep my WIP list down to four or less, so maybe I can actually finish things. Next up is the square for Comforting Jef. I borrowed 100 Afghan Squares to Knit from the library for inspiration. I didn't think a book like this would interest me because I never thought I would want to knit a whole afghan. This book is making me change my mind!! It is so wonderful. There are tons of fun and pretty afghans, and I may want to knit one after all. The patterns are very clearly written and charted, and I'm hoping to some day make this book a part of my own knitting library. Isn't it fun when something far outweighs you expectations??

Dream on Karen - he is a cutie and obviously Pea doesn't mind ;) The snow hasn't started here yet - sometime around noon and only 1-3 - I hope you don't get too much - I can't wait for Spring!!!!

I love your pajama fabric - I miss sewing, but have no place to open up my machine unless I close it everytime I use it - no patience for that right now, so I will have to stick to my other "stuff" ! lol

Enjoy your snow day, stay warm and cozy and have some fun knitting - - and maybe watching some skating videos hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? lol

Okay, that title made me nervous!!!

You are TOO funny!! You're such the adulteress. So what kind of photo shoot was it? ;-) I think it's even funnier that you confessed to Pea! I would've pleaded the fifth on that one. I'm so bummed that I'm missing all the Skating with Celebrities fun, especially after reading on Chrissy's blog that all kind of low and dirty stuff is going on behind the scenes. The Soft Tweed looks wonderful knitted up! Can't wait to see your jacket in progress! And I love your fleece material!! Those are going to be some cute pj's. It's been so long since I've hauled out the sewing machine, too, but I'm really looking forward to giving it a go for Project Spectrum. I'm glad to hear that book worked out so well... I don't think our library has it yet, but I'll keep looking. Take care, Karen! :-)

Sometimes I have "those" dreams and wake up hoping I wasn't mumbling about it in my sleep. VK would just laugh way to much about something like that. Your fleece pjs are going to be great. Perfect for snowy weather. We have had bupkus for snow this year. Normally that wouldn't bother me, but we bought x-country skis last year. Quite a leap of faith considering global warming and all. Can't wait to see your scarf FO!

You're totally busted! At least you weren't having dreams about Lloyd...blecch! That skating lesson would be the coolest. I haven't gone ice-skating in ages, but as a kid I lived on the rink and had dreams of skating greatness. It was my proudest moment when I finally mastered skating backwards!

Hmm, it's going to be quite the night on Fox tonight. The American Idol results show AND the finale of SWC. That will be some primo watch-and-knit time!!!

Oh PJs that sounds so great and pink sheep ones! I cannot wait to see your FO!! I would like to try for two pink projects this month too, seems like a nice goal.

Have fun Karen!

Olga said...

Jen said...

sounds like a good idea for project spectrum. Sew on!

Ragan said...

Great project spectrum projects! I love the pink fleece! So cute. I totally forgot about sewing something for Project Spectrum...duh! Ok, now back to looking through things to make. Love your red and pink, can't wait to see the progress!

Wait, you can't be kissing John Zimmerman. He's mine, all mine! (Well, I guess I have to share him with his wife, but ... whatever.) *giggle*
