A busy time....

Well I finished my very first knitting project! I am so proud of myself.... Stephanie showed me some of the basics.... but for the most part I taught myself to knit following the directions in books. These are washcloths from the book 101 Designer one-skein wonders. They were a super easy first project. Right now I am working on a set of wristlets (like fingerless gloves). They are done with crochet instead of knitting.... I just have the edging on one left and then the flower embellisment on both.... Then they are done!

On another front I redyed my hair. Now it is red all over.
I think it is going to stay red for a while! I am tired of dying my hair.... so I think I will leave it until it looks all faded and horrible!

Also... Owen leaves on the 6th.
He will be gone until the first of July. (By the way.... that picture of him was taken right before he became a specialist....) He has to go to Fort Sam Houston, which is in San Antonio. He is going to become a medic... and if he likes it eventually he will become an RN or a Doctor! When he finishes class in July we will be relocating (again.... this is the worst part of being military other than deployments to war zones) to Fort Lewis. I guess it is time to start trying to figure out where we are going to live when we get there. The houses on post look nice... but supposedly there is a 6 month or longer wait list... and we cant stay in a hotel that long!
