yearning for some batts

So, a cold day here in AZ, very rare, it is 56F outside and it makes me really crave some wool batting, I know this is weird. At our handwork group, which is a group of moms that get together to make handmade gifts for our school store. So last year our Leader ordered this huge roll of wool batting, for us Mom's to use needle felting. Well for over a year now I have been yearning for it! She can't remember where she bought it. But I want it! I want my own huge roll of the fluffy stuff! On chilly days I browse through the internet to find, to no availe. Could be a good thing. Since making the move, I put away all of my fun things, my spinning wheel, my other wool, all of it! It is in a moving pod, in a warehouse where I cannot touch it for months. I thought this would help me concentrate on work. It hasn't helped.

So here I sit, browsing the web, looking for the batting, saving Photo's of projects I would like to work on to a file. I should be out knitting on my shawl... he he he.. But that is too much like fun, and if I sit on the computer it is more like work.

In fact I am working, brought the pups in cause I could see they were cold outside. They are so freaking sweet, I am getting really picky about who I will sell them to now. Here are some pup photos to brighten your day.

Errata~! Lovely Lovely Errata!

Can I be the only one who has done this? Knitting Poncho, happily knitting poncho until row 41~ WTF? This can't be right.. so instead of Frogging it, which is my habit, I threw it in my bag and carried it around with me for 3 months. So on a whim, today finally! I looked up the errata! Guess what? Here it is! ha ha ha ha ha!! I love the internet!!!!!!!!!!! I just had to paste it in here to show. . I know someone else would have guessed at the problem, but not me! They had written k1f/b twice, instead of K2tog twice! Makes a big difference and I am so happy now!
Eudora ( page 108)On page 110, Row 41 should read: K3, * k2tog twice, k6, (k1-f/b) twice, k7, ssk, k2tog, k8, (k1-f/b) twice, k7, ssk; repeat from * to marker, k3 (211 stitches remain).
Now, if I could only get the gummy bear, bobbie pin and other scary stuff out of the poncho, I would be good to go!
A frogger no more forever! I always frog things, so this has boosted me and I will never frog again with out checking for errata first! Yay
This is a poncho I am making for my 2 little chicks, they will share it. It is called Eudora from Viva Poncho by STC crafts I will post pics when my camera is up again. I was so happy to find the errata and realize I wasn't crazy! Yay!

What I am up to now.
