Knit Marathon Update: Making soup is not knitting?

I have been a completely ADD knitter so far. But, I have accomplished quite a bit. As you saw earlier, I finished my 4 scarves which will be mailed out tomorrow to my sister for her family.

Sunday is church day for us, but one of my kids was sick, so she was brought to the clinic, and I stayed here with the other 2. While I knitted and attended church via the internet, the kids measured the snow for me and made a very cool fort

OK… Here we go again with that little “click here to see more” thingy… I feel like a real blogger!

LOL… I just noticed we never brought in our patio furniture! ROFL!!!!!

Anyways… then I knitted a little bit, while watching Pioneer Woman. BIG mistake. Because then I had to STOP knitting and make the yummy corn chowder I had just watched her make!

It was a huge hit. Everyone said it was a keeper! Love it when all of the faces in my house are happy with the same food.

OK… back to the knitting part of the marathon – I FINISHED the front of Kev’s sweater!!!!! woot woot!

Now to cast on his first sleeve. Man, I wanted to suggest a couple of days ago that maybe I could finish this sweater for him for Valentine’s Day, but I thought there was WAY too much to finish. Now, maybe…

OK, back to the needles, as I will be stopping at 3:30 to go to see Hotel Transylvania with the fam later.

(OH… did I mention that while I was making the chowder I decided to also make a roasted chicken? I mean, I was already chopping onions, right? Makes sense to you? No?)
