You know as much as I love winter, it's totally bringing me down. Perhaps, if there were snow it would be better, but alas nothing yet. There is ice in the forecast for next week, so here's hoping.

So yeah, I have a lot of things going on that will hopefully be tied up next month. I desperately want to get back to work and I'm trying to muster up some motivation. My sewing machine is starting to collect dust. My knitting needles, however, are burning it up. I recently took a knitting lesson at a local Tulsa yarn shop, Loops. It was a private lesson, so I was able to ask for help on a couple of different things I've struggled with figuring out. I started my first project on circular needles and unfortunately, um it's not looking so hot. The lady at Loops said I could bring it in for help, but I'm too embarrassed at how bad it looks at this point. Isabell is helping to hide some of my mistakes. The yarn is soo pretty though! I think I may start it over and then take it in! 

I also got my hair cut this past week. I realize it may still look long to some people, but this is the shortest it's been in like 5 years. I don't think I have the guts to go shorter though. 

I hope everyone is staying warm and toasty. I'm ready to watch a movie and knit.

I'm sorry that you are having troubles with knitting in the round. However, I think you just picked a poor project, if you don't mind my saying so. The true beauty of knitting in the round is the ability to eliminate all those pesky purls. If you knit all the stitches, every row, you'll get a lovely stockinette tube or a blanket.
Try this blanket:

Cute hair cut! I went on a chopping spree with mine in 2008 ;) I think now I'll settle down and let it grow...
That is so neat that you're taking knitting lessons. Girl, I should let you see some of MY disasters, you would never be embarassed again...everything I made turned into a weird bowl...
