B is for Buffy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer that is!!!

This is week two of the ABC Along 2008. Those of you that know me, already know I am a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan!!! One of my e-mail accounts is named "The Buffy watcher" as in I am not simply a Buffy Watcher, I am THE Buffy watcher...

I have several Buffy collectibles, not nearly as many as I feel I need though. Below you see a mug that says "Eat Stake", a pillow with the Buffy logo and many phrases in Buffy-verse, and lastly one of my prize Buffy items - the season five promotional tombstone that was produced as part of a media kit. I got that piece on E-Bay - yea, me!!!

Since school has begun, I feel as if I don't have time to knit or spin, and I am already weary of Legal Aspects of Health Information. I have went back to school to obtain my RHIT - in my case the RH could possibly stand for "really hateful"...

On the knitting front, I am yet to finish the second navy sock, but I am making forward progress every day. I did take time to do a pretty major fix on a friend's afghan. She is a very new knitter, and I took pity on her and took the broken project home to repair. I took out six rows, doesn't sound so bad until you remember it as an AFGHAN!!! All jokes aside, it wasn't too bad. After I ripped back past the error, I re-knit the six rows so she would not feel like she had taken two giant steps backwards. I also rewound her ball of yarn into a neat little yarn cake as Natty got the yarn out of the bag and gave it the old one-two with the bunny kickers. I hope I did not take too much licence with a project that belongs to someone else... The gals/friends I knit with meet on Wednesday night, so I will see if I overstepped my knit-etiquette.

Haha...you forgot to mention the new needles, too! I think that's the only thing that's really close to being presumptuous. I also think that once you show her the glory and magic of circulars, she won't mind a bit!

Yeah, I'm with Christy, gotta get those circulars going, but if I was still a new knitter, I'd appreciate all the help I could get!! Ya done good!

Linda said...

ITA, ITA! I think you're a good friend to help her out, and she'll appreciate the work you did.
