Crazy Weekend

For the privacy of everyone involved- this post is a little sketchy. For family and friends I'll be sending out an email with more information.
This weekend we traveled and encountered this.

Yup snow. While it was 90 in Dallas, we were freezing our buns off.

Crafty Disaster
I've always wanted to knit. I've never been able to because for some reason I cannot get both my hands to work together with my brain. That's why I crochet, one hand is fine, both hands is beyond me.
A coworker has recently become enthralled with loom knitting. I thought to myself, surely with as crafty as I am I can do this winding the yarn around pegs thing, it will be the perfect answer to all my knitting inadequacies. So out I went to invest in a knitting loom, spent a couple of hours online researching different techniques and then I was on my way. Or so I thought. A couple of hours later and frogging different pieces I ended up with this paltry section and a headache from frustration.

Yup, that's all I got. So I'm back to crochet and I don't think I'll leave it any time soon. Unless I can actually get someone to sit me down and teach me step by step how to do it.

Congratulations!
My sister in law, Kara, graduated from The OSU this weekend! I totally wish we could have been there for the event but we couldn't. Trust us, our hearts were there singing Carmen Ohio.
