Addicted to knitting...

Had I known just HOW addictive knitting can be, I'd never have started again! I have to keep away from the knit store, or I'm tempted to buy more needles and yarn. Succumbed yesterday after Kit told me about a cool pattern for mittens. Now I've started them too. And I found a book with a cool pattern for a Beginner Sweater made with Paton's Divine (I'm going to go with Regal Red). Though I bought the book, I resisted the urge to buy the yarn for now. Must finish other projects first. Really. I HAVE to.

On the writing front, I submitted my partial to another agency yesterday. And am trying out a cool programme for tracking my mss and their submissions. It's different than either WWP or PFN in that you log info about your mss AND add in info about Agents/Publishers. It's totally cool. Plus it has a 30 Day Demo - no restrictions! And right now, the price is right.

Ok, goal for today is to submit again. And go through my notebook for WTHB to get back into it. I woke very early after a nightmare. This on top of an already broken night of sleep, so we'll see how well I do. At least the sun is shining today, which does help :-)

Happy weekend, everyone!

This submission tracking program is pretty basic, but it works well for me. Best yet... free!

I wonder what knitting would be like... enough people certainly do it. My mom got me a gift card to Michael's for my birthday. She was thinking I'd like to try some Scrapbooking... but maybe I should try knitting... (not that I don't have enough hobbies... blogging, reading, writing, parenting, working... you know the drill) :D

I wish you could come down here and teach me how to knit.

Ummm, is there a reason it has ten you awhile to read the Annette Blair book?

I hear ya on the knitting addiction! I can't pass a yarn store without going in. It's the same with bookstores. I'll buy up yarn just because I like the color or texture. I don't have any idea what it will turn into, but I figure if I have the yarn I can figure out a pattern later...
