Busy busy busy

Work has been really tough lately… lots and lots to do, meetings coming up, presentations, posters, blah blah blah. Basically, I’ve had more than my share of things to work on outside of work time and that has eaten up my relaxing and knitting time, which sucks. But at least it will keep me busy until we go get Hitchcock! In other words, I’m not going crazy waiting like I did when I was waiting for Kubrick. 😉

Golden Globes were on tonight and I’m so happy that Kate Winslet won twice! I think she’s wonderful and totally deserved those wins, IMO. Other than that, I have yet to see Slumdog Millionaire (though I really want to) and Vicki Christina Barcelona (also really really want to see), so I don’t really have an opinion on those. I really do need to start watching movies again. We used to go once a week every week and stopped due to wedding stuff and after we got back from the honeymoon things got busy at work and we haven’t really been able to get back into it. I think we’ll try to start again this weekend, hopefully! 🙂

Oh and I am so so so excited! I have received my personalized set made by Karatstix and the items are just beyond awesome! I had her make it a photo, knit, dog theme. Do you recognize Kubrick? If you click on it to look at the larger size on Flickr you can see it in greater detail so you can get an idea of just how awesome it really is!

Also, I completed one more neckwarmer, this time in blue – yeah, yeah, I know you want something new! 😉

I have been knitting on my new “secret” project – which won’t be secret for much longer – and I am so far loving it! It’s lacework, which I really enjoy doing, and I love the yarn I’m knitting with too! Will post pictures of it next time, I promise, though it probably won’t look like much unblocked, you can still get an idea! Meanwhile, I will try to keep warm (Wednesday is supposed to be a high of something like 20 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit for anyone not in the US) and below zero with wind chill! Brrrrrrrrr. Hopefully I won’t freeze to death before my next post, LOL!

To end this on a cute note, here’s the latest Hitchcock pic for you all. Isn’t he just SO cute?

    haha, I love that I’m inspiring neckwarmer knitting! 😉 I would get another set with HItchcock but they are too expensive to keep buying extras, LOL.

    Thanks for the neckwarmer compliments to both of you!
