...skating to 30!!

I have wanted to learn to ice skate since the 1992 whenI watched Kristi Yamaguchi win the Olympic Gold in Women's Figure Skating.

I have been in love with figure skating since the 6th grade when I wrote my Sport Report in Mr. Kenny's class.

I went Ice Skating for the first time on my 16th birthday. I have skated on and off for the past 15years. it is time for something different, I want to spin, and twirl, and jump, and glide! I want to learn to do this for real, and I know it will take time and dedication. I want to wear the amazing costumes and glide to the music.

After speaking at length with Max, arrangements have been made for EJ and I will start group lessons on Thursday February 25th at Snoopy's Home Ice

My birthday is almost here, and so in 15 days I will be skating my way to 30!!!!!

Knitting Update....picture heavy post.

I have recently been frustrated at my inability to finish anything via knitting... so I reevaluated my projects and decided to only work on a select few at a time.... here is what made the cut.

HPKCHC- Quidditch uniforms... a sweatband for EJ, and a headband for mommy!~
These are finished, and so I had to share the pictures!!!!

Square 1 of my Great American Afghan..... and just think I only have 79 to go...

Fish...glorious fish, I have committed to making 65 for EJ's daycare nap blanket.

...and then our February KAL. I have no idea what I am making but I recently heard that I have tons of more stripes to go... my guess is a purse. (progress up to day4)

Slither-an original pattern designed by one of my HPKCHC friends.

...back to my needles...
