Mad for Mingus and Memes

I think my key to blogging is to do it on the weekend. This seems to be working out so much better. Things are getting blogged about again. It feels good. I <3 my blog.

So, Mingus has been going much better for me these days. I even got into enough of a groove that it could come to work and my knitting group and be worked out without error. Yesterday, I managed to complete the first one:
For as hard of a start that I was having with this sock, I am really glad I kept working on it. Because I do love it.

That is really all I have for knitting today. I saw this little meme on YarnMiracle's blog and the mood struck me to do it, so here it is:

1) What I Was Doing 10 Years Ago
Finishing up my last year of high school. I might have even been graduating from high school 10 years ago today, I am not sure. I was working at the Dog N Suds as a carhop in Grayslake, and generally being an annoying teenager.

2) 5 Things on My To-Do List for Today
Laundry
Clean bedroom/bathroom
Tidy up balcony so I can then sit out there and knit a Mingus sock
Wind/package yarn to ship
Go to Milwaukee to celebrate Mel's 30th birthday!

3) Snacks I Enjoy
Trail Mix, Chex Mix, Ruffles Potato Chips

4) Things I Would Do If I Were a Billionaire
Build my parents an awesome house. Give some money to my siblings. Maybe give my brother, Mike, a new car because he is living the dream being on the radio, yet his car is so shitty that the radio doesn't even work anymore. Then, I would quit my job, open that LYS I am dreaming of (and of course, we would carry Knitting Like Crazy yarn) and just hang out in the Northern Illinois area being cool and rich.

5) Places I Have Lived
Grayslake, IL; Chicago, IL; Wheeling, IL; and Arlington Heights, IL. I like Illinois!

6) 5 Peeps I Wanna Know More About:
I want to know about anyone reading this who hasn't filled it out on their blog yet.

Must go now, the to-do list is calling! Happy Knitting!

  4. Jen, That is a stunning sock and the yarn is perfect!

    I have a thing on Chex Mix, the one I make, not the packaged one. i've been known to eat that for supper when the Hubbo is not around. Hmmm, maybe tonight?
