Grumble, grumble...

I swear I haven't abandoned blogging or knitting for that matter. It's been a whirlwind since getting back from the Bahamas. We've had multiple houseguests & gone up to the lake for a few days.

I attribute my lack of blogging to two things, global warming & blogger sucking.

It was 107 in my car yesterday. Stifling hot I tell you. Heat like that just doesn't lend itself to being very active.

While I can't do anything about the heat I can say this "blogger I am sick of your fickle crap, next time I post it will be to provide a link out of your hell". Even today as I tried to post this it was mocking me! No more I say!!

Isaac & I are plugging away on the layout for my new blog. It may be a couple more days before we have it all "purty".

So to tide you over how about some fantastic pictures of paradise?

We had an amazing time on Grand Bahama Island. The weather was great (about an hour of heavy rain each day- for the rainy season that is fantastic) and temps around 86. The water is clear and warm. You could see forever with snorkeling gear. We kayaked and rented a hobie cat sailboat. Our favorite adventure was snorkeling at deadman's reef where we shared the water with the most beautiful tropical fish, a few barracudas, stingrays and a 10 foot nurse shark. It was unbelievable!! Relaxing, romance & adventure! Perfect I tell you!

You can see the rest of the photos we took here if you are so inclined.

I also knit a lot on Orangina. So much so that my next post might just have two finished objects, the new blog & Orangina!

Just a quick update....

before I hop on a plane to the Bahamas!!

I wanted to show off my half finished Hanging vines stole:

As well as my prototype for my knit sock kit swap (whew, that's a mouthful) bag:

My partner favors a ziplock so I thought I would make an "upscale ziplock". This version is mine (I wanted to work out all the kinks). The yarn you see in the pouch is for my Orangina. I plan on working on her a bit while on holiday.

I hope you guys all have a great week! I will be peeking in with the wifi connection at our hotel (I mean a girl can't go without her blogging peeps for 6 whole days right?!?!).

I leave you with a gift from our friends over at Williams Street (aka the Cartoon Network for all you non-Atlantians).

This billboard has popped up here in Atlanta as well as Nashville, Birmingham & Brooklyn. It's been getting a lot of talk on blogs all over. There is also one here in town that says "yes." as well as "I pooted". I have pictures of those as well (just not uploaded). The good people at CN really know how to entertain us while stuck in traffic.

This one is just to remind you that you can catch a new episode of my favorite show the venture brothers tonight at 10:30. I love this show so much that I swear I squealed like a little girl when I saw this billboard last week.

So knit, watch the show and enjoy the toe picker billboard folks!
