Missing Cable

So I still can't find the camera cable thingy, but I haven't really looked either. Therefore I still can't post pictures of anything current, like knitting. Speaking of which, Sarah and Dana....I started the one skein wonder from using some electric/eggshell blue nature wool that I bought at HCW last fall. I think it took me longer to figure out how to wind that craptacular wad of yarn they call a skein into a ball than it will to actually knit it. I still believe that even though you are from a third world country, that is not an excuse for not being able to make a skein that follows some sort of mathematical principal.

Because people like pictures, I will include this one of the view from our apartment. So lovely! Except for the stupid ass guy who lives upstairs who plays bad country with the base up and lets his cat outside to torture our cats and kill things. I have already had to see a dead bunny and a half dead baby dove today. There are no dead animals in this picture.

Also, here is a picture of me and my friend, Michell in the parking lot of Weston the day before we moved from Austin to Tucson. She has not been having a good week. Look how happy she is here though! Cheer up Michell! It could be worse. You could live in Tucson :) Happy middle of the week.

It has rained a ton last night through this morning. The Santa Cruz River is roaring! Normally, this is a big dry riverbed where you more often see people hiking or riding horses than actually water. I guess this is a rarity in Tucson for the river to run bank to bank. I have been told that the river has not been like this in over 20 years.

This is a picture of the Santa Cruz by St. Marys street taken by my co-worker Dale. We went over there this morning to check it out.

I also took some pictures of a tube top (possibly a pillow) and a scarf that I knitted, and a t-shirt that I made the victim of my first attempt at embroidery. Too bad we can't find the cable to download them from the camera.....

Awesome. I am not an idiot! I can actually post stuff. Cool.

I am creating this blog to keep family and friends updated on life in Tucson and knitting/other crafty projects. I figure it will actuall make me take some pictures of things around here, as well as knitting projects.

Speaking of pictures, I will attempt to insert one. I don't have any currently on my computer other than a picture of poppies that my dad took at home in Chicago. Well, not Chicago anymore. We now live in the suburbs. Monee. Although Steve is quick to correct me that it is Green Garden (Yeah).
Ok. So this is just a practice post to see if i can figure this crap out......
