I need to keep my mouth shut!

Today, I took my car into the dealers to get an oil change. I hate doing it because the dealer is about 45 minutes away. But I bundled up and brought it in. I really like the dealer and the Service Dept. They have always been very good and my car is under warrenty so everything that breaks I make sure I fix. I was sitting in the waiting room knitting away while I was waiting. When they came and got me, I got in my car and noticed my parking permit (which costs $80 every 3 months) was missing. I asked where it was and they said nothing was there. I never remove that darn thing because I've gotten towed before when I forgot to put it back up. I had everyone looking around for that stupid pass. Now, you know, I didn't believe them. But after about 1/2 hr I left. To get a new pass I have to turn in the old pass and I was mentally practicing what I was going to say to the Police Dept who issues the pass. After I got home my sister-in-law calls me and asks if she can borrow my pass again tomorrow. I forgot that I told her to just come get it out of my car! I hope I didn't get the guy who worked on my car in trouble. Oh well, they probably knew I was a little off.

So here is my knitting for the week. I made this hat for Tom for our ski trip. It matches his new ski coat I got him for Christmas.
Now some sad news. We lost one of our kitties this week. She succombed to Kidney Disease. It was a total shock because she always stayed in the basement away from the dogs. I didn't see her that often and by the time I realized she was sick, it was too late. So now I'm down to 2 dogs and 1 cat. I think it's time for a new kitten. Now, I have to talk Tom into it. Here are my furry friends that I have now. This is Princess and no she's not pregnant!
This is Karen. And this is Elsa.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day. This, a friend of mine from work made. She's a very talented crafter and she embroidered this on her new sewing machine. I think it's just lovely.
Oh, look here. Someone has already gotten her Valentine's Day gift from me.
She's in heaven right now. All I hear if chomp, chomp, chomp.
These are my completed socks for SAM5. I'm hoping to make another pair this month but right now I'm making a ski hat for my husband. We're going to Banff skiing next month.
Now, as promised, I'm giving away some HOT HOT HOT Wollmeise. There were only 3 people who commented so you all get one!!! Email me your address and I can have them in the mail tomorrow. Thank you for reading.

Stay tuned for an important message

I finally finished these socks and I'm very happy with them. They have already found a home. I'm on my next pair now. I tried the Secret of the Stole but I'm just resigning myself that I'm no good at lace. I think it's my eyesight, but I'm not sure. I just kept dropping stitches and it was a mess. So I'm back to socks. That's my favorite anyways. Maybe someday I'll try to tackle lace again.

The weather here has been very sucky. We got a foot of snow on Friday and they were calling for another foot last night. I was so relieved when I woke up this morning and no snow. But alas, it's just coming late. This is what it looked like last weekend.

Now on to more important stuff. I, like many of you out there have fallen under the spell of Wollmeise. In my quest to get some, I got a little excited and accidently ordered 2 of the same kind. Now, I'm a share the wealth kind of girl, so I decided I would randomly choose a person who posts a comment on this. I just started my blog in August and don't have many readers so your chances are good. I will pick someone on Feb 14th, otherwise known as Valentines day. Good luck.
