I am trying to change this nervousness into excitement. Most of the info I already know for as many times as I have gone to the Lilac Festival. Its the numbers I am worried about. But that's what index cards are for right? Its a good thing I won't know any of these people.
I have also started knitting a Bolero I found a pattern on Ravelry:
I think its cute and can't wait to be able to wear it to work!!

So I am volunteering for the Lilac Festival again this year! This time I get to give the guide tours aboard the motor coaches! I get to be the tour guide!! You know, what I'm going to school for!
So I am VERY excited!
And with my excitement of both that and Spring finally arriving, I have been all over the place with my knitting! The main thing I am wanting to knit now is a wrap/shawl or poncho. Kyle keeps mocking any of the patterns I find saying they are for old ladies. And even though I have finally found one now, ("Razor's Edge from Stitch'N Bitch Nation) I can't decide what freakin yarn to use!
And I am on a budget so I can't get anything fancy!

When a friend is trying to create a serious relationship with every girl he talks to because he is so desperate to replace what he lost with another friend. He doesn't realize he can never replace her, and no girl will ever be like her. So stop the comparison. And when he finds a girl he likes it takes him only 3 days of conversation to ask her to be his. If he could he probably would have written her a note saying "Will you go out with me? check yes or no"
Now the girl he has his sights on is an R.I.T girl. And she's the kind of R.I.T girl who LOVES the attention of all the guys. Who is so desperate for such attention, she will sleep with any and all of them! And lover boy is just another guy on her list.
Lover boy has constantly been warned about these girls. Lover boy has been given a great deal of advice on how to deal with what she did. Lover boy is an idiot and doesn't listen. Fine. Just don't come back to your friends and expect them to fix it and make you feel better again. It is now your own damn problem and you will be alone in it!!!

Finished Sarah's hat in time for the Crazy Hat Party hosted by the 272 Gang.
The pom-pom is a little flat but she wanted something really big. the cable goes all the way down the ear flap and only looks bigger because I changed the colors. Then there are just braids for the ties coming from the ear flaps.
So now that I got that done I was starting a log cabin blanket to take along our camping trip, but this recent 80 degree weather is really changing my mood from blanket making to cotton halter tops but we shall see who will win...
On a different note, my boyfriend Kyle will be moving in with me. He is still a little irate that I keep knitting things that AREN'T his scarf...but with this weather...I can't really stand to look at it right now.
i probably wont pick it up til it gets colder.

We put Sarah's little bunny, Maggie, in an Easter basket and a bow on her head and took pictures, because we both love forced Kodak moments.

Last night Steph came over for comforting and Sarah to help with comforting and Kyle was just there to see me. Somehow this little gathering turned into a knitting party of sorts. Kyle just wanted to practice knitting and became frustrated and began putting himself down for dropping stitches. Steph wanted to knit a hat on straight needles and Sarah wanted to do her homework while making sure I was working on her hat.
Kyle soon became very annoyed with knitting and started using my needles as drum sticks.
But back to the hat...
I'm in the process of decreasing while keeping the cable from getting smaller. I have until Saturday do finish it in time for 272 Riverknoll's "Silly Hat Party"
So many thing to complain about in the world. Too many, I find. Our Government, our country, their country, taxes, lack of money, spoiled generations, deterioration of our speech, school system, television, movies, stars doing this wrong, presidents saying this wrong, people are inconsiderate and selfish, no one is saving the environment, no one is stopping this war.
What about the rarest of rare moments when someone does something kind...for no apparent reason? No body notices these because they instantly become suspicious. Why would they do that? There must have been a reason!! They must have some evil reason behind it!
But why? Why is it so impossible to be so nice?
A lady showed her appreciation for my good customer service by buying me a cup of coffee from our cafe! And that single act has made this day more beautiful than I had ever planned on making it out to be! It made me want to return that happiness to someone else. And I hope I have. But I am not the judge on whether I have. It is for the people who received that kindness that decide on whether it made them happy.
