I hope ewe all enjoyed your Thanksgiving with friends and family! I still haven't had my fill of turkey, though I am planning on having some turkey pie this week for dinner.
It looks like December 9th is the next scheduled meeting time. I will host at my house and sure hope you all can come. I'm excited about December and all the festivities this time of year. We put our Christmas tree up today (and Tim put out his Menorah). I'm knitting non-stop getting things made. Why oh why don't I do this in the summer!!
Don't you just love this picture. It's my new desktop wallpaper. I got it here if you'd like to download it.

Hi there Loopy Ladies! I am so sorry I didn't come last week, I really wanted to be there. I hear that we are going to bi-weekly meetings, which sounds good. I hope to be there in December, for sure.
I have been busy with crafts and sewing projects, but still find time to knit, too. I can't wait to see all the great projects you are all working on. I had my surgery in September, and have lost 43 lbs. so far. I feel good, and I gave away alot of fat clothes.
We are clearing out some stuff because we are remodeling some of our house, and I am wondering if anyone is looking for a piano? We have 2, and one has to go. Let me know if you are interested. It is 40 years old, but in excellent condition. Lynn had it tuned 2 years ago, so it might need tuning. She is asking $1200. for it, which is what an appraiser suggested.
I am going to MN, to see the grandkids on Thanksgiving. Can't wait.
Miss you all, I will be back in Dec., I promise. Love, Judi

Wednesday was such a fun night! I enjoyed the company of all of you and truly missed Judi and Ingrid!
Kari, you were so intense and involved in your work. I hope you are over the hard part! Sorry that BEAUTIFUL sock you made didn't fit your son!
Jenna, your hat is so pretty. You did wonderfully. I hope you have an easy time of it with your socks! We'll all be cheering you on.
Wendy, I'm glad you were able to join us! Some time I'd like to try two socks at once! You make it look so easy!
Terri, I love the sweater you finished. It's beautiful and comfy! I also love the yarn you are making those socks with. Good luck with that second (I mean third!) sock.
Dawn, Just how many pairs of socks have you made???? Good luck with that baby knitting. It's easy. I do it all the time!
Kathleen, did you get the yarn you need? I love that slippers pattern! I can't wait to see those!
I finished the pink sweater and started a different sweater. Before I go to far I need to swatch because it is looking so big!!!
I have a question for all of you ladies. I was thinking that if everyone was at my house last Wednesday we would have certainly had a full house, which got me thinking (no funny comment there!) Do you think we should put a cap on our numbers? I'm afraid of running out of room. Please chime in and let me know what you think?
We have decided to have our swap due on July 22nd! If you have any questions just let me know!

I promise we haven't had a tick problem since you were all here last! Dexter wants me to apologize for that. He was new and nervous! He's more settled in now and doesn't bring hardly any ticks in the house!
Let's do a head count. Don't be sheepish...just a quick post to let us know if ewe will be here ☺

I should be getting home just in time to greet you all. If you are planning on coming and leave a post it will serve as a disclaimer that you will NOT notice that I have not cleaned up for company. I am swamped every day this week LOL! Ingrid, leave the white gloves at home LOL!
See you then.

Good evening ladies. I am posting a quick recap before I head off to bed! Judy I am glad you were up to coming over tonight. It was good to see you. Thanks for the rice krispie treats. They were soooo good!
Dawn L I am glad you stopped by. I hope the alpaca pulls through! I am sure you are sound asleep by now.
Wendy, the friendship cake will taste GREAT with my coffee tomorrow! I love Kate's new socks LOL!
Kari, I hope you and your new babies have a long life together. They will be an "egg"cellent addition to your family....yes, I crack myself up! Keep knitting away at those socks and they will be done by next week :)
Kathleen, the baby sweater you made is adorable! I may just try it in worsted weight myself. I really need to get a sweater set made for Tim's teacher QUICKLY!
We missed all of you who were unable to attend. I look forward to next week and to the chance to introduce you to Dexter. ☺☺☺ Let's hope he turns out to be a really good dog!

- Think to yourself, "Self, do I really want to swap or not?" It's not mandatory, and it's supposed to be fun!
- For the blog to exist, it needs posting and feedback. Do we want to support the blog in this manner or let it go?
- Kathleen is a very bad dog mommy
- Wendy wants to knit a mustache. Kari wants to graph her own. ;-)
- DL is trying not to overheat before she finishes that big blanket.
- Ingrid is a proud supporter of shih tsu polygamy ;-)
- Judi has seen some scary examples of wildlife . . . (well, you know)
- We missed you, Dawn!

- 2 Loopies were working on sweaters, 4 Loopies were knitting socks and 1 Loopy was knitting lace.
- Dawn taught some of us a new word, and as a teacher duly taught all of us the proper definition. :-)
- Bella still loves her obscene dog toy.
- DL can kitchener without looking at directions or absolute quiet. (Wow!)
- We established in word and now in print that if you can't make the Loopy Ewes meeting of the week, please call or email your gracious host as soon as you know. (Loopy Ewe Etiquette!)
- Our next Loopy Swap is looming in the future. This brings me to the next segment of this post.

Hi ladies. I know several of you have already mentioned that you won't be able to attend knitting tomorrow night. I think I am going to have to bow out as well. I need to do some EASTER shopping for my class. There's no school Friday so I have to have it all ready for tomorrow night!
I hope those of you who make it have a wonderful time.

I know this is a strange sheep photo, but apparently a poet got permission to spray paint words on sheep and let them roam to create unique poems...anyways, I like weird stuff!
Anyways...see y'all next week at DKs...I hope your O's feel better.

Well, its Tuesday afternoon and I (along with a couple of other ewes) am wondering where and when knitting might be tomorrow night. I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but I am also wondering if the lack of interest in the blog is reflecting an attitude about knitting night. I have a couple of things
I want to bring up and I think it is important that EVERYONE who wants to participate weighs in...
1) A plan or schedule for the next month or two might be helpful to those of us who like to "plan"
2) Since we are having people over to our homes a system of RSVPing through the blog might be helpful as well. Of course we all understand that plans change and things come up, but as a courtesy to the hostess it would be nice to let her know!
3) Ingrid brought up meeting every other week not that long ago. I do think that making dates of every first and third Wednesday (for example) could work! Thats just my two cents!
So, I know we are all very busy in our day to day activities, but I would like to hear if anyone has feedback or anything at all to say about the future of the Loopy Ewes!

Hey, Loopy Ewes! We missed a lot of you last night, but we still managed to have fun! We munched on yummy spinach dip, the salsa dip extraordinaire, and fresh fruit with an impromptu pudding/yogurt dip that was quite tasty. It was fun to get together and see everyone's knitted wares and talk about all of those naughty songs on the radio, as well as dogs, dogs, dogs! Dawn, your bunny blanket was coming along so fast. You are a such a super, speedy knitter. Dawnelle, your sock is looking awesome. Go figure how a different stitch pattern can mix things up. Judi, that hat you finished up is gorgeous! What a lucky person the recipient will be!

There you go....my fairy tale recap of a story. Remember I've used poetic license to create this masterpiece! There will be no carry over on any other post. I'm bound to keep my word! Do not let my humor slip and pass you over. My purls of wisdom have been knit together so that you may climb the ladder of expertise that I have found!
