Knitting in the Moonlight



We have had a full moon the last couple of nights. I took some pictures but they did not come out that well. I found this picture on Webshots and this is basically what it looked like in my night sky just add a couple of twinkling stars and that is it. I have been diligently knitting every evening on my Butter Bear sweater. I finished the front. I had some troubles shaping the neck area because I miss read the pattern. Once I figured out what it meant I ripped it out and started the neck shaping again and it turned out fine. Now I am working on the back. I am excited to get them both connected and start shaping the collar. This is all new to me and I am learning a lot. I mostly cannot wait to get to the sleeves to try my hand at intarsia. I am trying to get a good portion of this sweater finished before I start the Weasley Sweater. Like I said, I am learning so much and I think it will come in handy when I start the Weasley.

Wow, I've read so many of those books. For most of them, I had no idea that they were ever banned!

Well, I get the Scary Stories. Those things used to give me the willies. Isn't it off how often those same books are found on lists of the greatest litereature ever?
Some, however, should be banned from schools, thereby assuring that kids will read them just to find out what makes them so scandalous.

Tami, I just happened to be surfing for emini futures and somehow I ended up here. Don't ask me how. I actually wasn't interested in Knitting in the Moonlight until I accidently got here and started reading. Got major sidetracked. - ROFL - Well, best of luck and I'm back off looking for info on emini futures.

Hi there Tami. I was searching for the latest information on emini trading and somehow, which I don't understand, found your site. Although Knitting in the Moonlight wasn't what I was interested in, I'm sure glad I found it. It's really amazing how on the Internet you can sit down and look for one thing, such as emini trading and find totally unrelated interesting stuff and spend hours reading about stuff other than what you were searching for. I'll keep on looking for emini trading but I just had to comment on how much I enjoyed reading the comments here.

Tami, I get incredibly sidetracked on the Internet. I'm supposed to be searching on day trading course but got sidetracked here somehow and am reading about Knitting in the Moonlight instead. It's amazing how something that's supposed to take a few minutes ends up taking a few hours because it's so much more interesting reading about Knitting in the Moonlight than searching on day trading course like I'm supposed to be doing.
