The places I've been...

Kat is having a contest~ head on over and see what is all about.
Here is my entry:

1. Sitting on a pile of blankets in the yoga studio waiting for the Therapudic Chair Yoga class to start.
2. Waiting for the stop light to turn green on my way to a baby shower- I HAD to finish that darn plushy in time, didn't I?
3. In the car, heading over Donner Pass summit in a blizzard- We were headed to San Fran for a funeral. (by the way in the sloooow traffic I spotted a fellow knitter and had hubby maneuver so I could hold up my knitting for her to see- thus being instantly bonded together by the needles and yarn, but she never looked up from her work)
4. At a school board meeting and at other meetings that TOTALLY stressed me out- I had the knitting under the table and was knitting blind so noone would *know* what I was up to.
5. (this is more of a, I WILL be doing, than a have done) At a SF Giants game with all the SF Chicks With Sticks and the Procrastiknitters for the Stitch n' Pitch night- mind you I will be not only knitting something fabulous in orange and black but drinking a large, cool and expensive beer and having an equally expensive dog with kraut and jalepenos to wash it all down. Oh, and taking lots of pictures to document the event! I can hardly wait for July!!! (see you then Kat~)

Iris: finished it- It was my French Market Bag, lots of st St so it was no biggie. ")
good to train your hands like that anyway.

If I could knit while working I would be so happy. However, it's hard to knit and draw in AutoCAD at the same time.

wanna see a pic of your French Market Bag! and Re: hula hoop contest, I channeled the little boy from Hudsucker Proxy. Seen it? Ya know, for kids... the little boy taps his foot as he hoops, an excellent pointer for contest winning hula hoop skills!
