Some pictures of my projects

I finally remembered and had time to download my photos I took a week ago. Here is the scarf I'm making for my hubby, more than halfway done! I'll have it done by next year since it's a little too hot now.
Now for the baby blanket that will never be a whole blanket. It is getting very boring since it's the same 4 rows over and over and over again. But, I've managed to finish the first skein of green and now I'm starting the second skein, which is white. Then I have one more skein after that, a yellow one.
Here's the detail of the pattern. I did mess up a little, but of course I didn't take a picture of that part!!

Oh to be a stay at home wife!!!

I just returned from a month of working in Australia. Unfortunately, I brought no knitting projects with me, but I did manage to read 3 books from the Kathy Reich's Temperance Brennan series. . . highly recommended. I've done a little bit since I got home. I'm mainly working on a scarf for Josh, although he's going to Irag for a year and won't need it, but I just want to finish something, and I'm also working on a baby blanket for my cousin. The baby shower is in June so I don't have much time left. It's getting a little bit boring, but it's good for when I get home from work and don't want to think.

I'm thinking of things to make for the charity auction this year. We're starting things off pretty early being that it's in November, but I might as well start thinking enven though I won't start anything until October!

The best thing is that I've been able to work from home for the last 2 weeks since I've been home from Australia. My dog had knee surgery (poor pup) and I needed to stay home with him a few days. Then I realized, wow, I'm a million times more productive at home then at work. So, I've been working from home. It's been real nice because I can actually take a lunch break and knit of go for a walk with the dog. Not having to drive to work is great too, I've got an extra 90 minutes every day to do anything I want (mainly fold laundry or sleep). I could definitely be a stay at home wife for a while!!!

Well, that's it, no pictures or anything, they'll just have to wait til my next post, which will hopefully be in less than 2 months!!
