I have had a few focus problem with either being in pain or taking pain killers so the big red scarf took a little extra time and I did not get to finish any socks for my Sock-a-Month along - I am ok with that - I did something nice for someone else! :)

Here are the obligatory pics of the big red scarf!

I finished it in a timely fashion and it will be turned in today to my local Einstein's Bagels - I forgot to add I am also making a wedding dress for a friend and have been playing World of Warcraft too as my mindless recreation!

I'm such a joiner!

It's the Knittyfolks fault - I know if I join I will not be alone! Now let's see if I can finish anything for all the Knitalongs and Swaps I have over there in my Sidebar! Whee!

Rollin' rollin' rollin'..

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Keep movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!
Don't try to understand 'em,
Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
Soon we'll be living high and wide.
Boy my heart's calculatin'
My true love will be waitin', be waiting at the end of my ride.

Move 'em on, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em out,
Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!
Set 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide.

Full Lyrics

Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin'
Rain and wind and weather
Hell-bent for leather
Wishin' my gal was by my side.
All the things I'm missin',
Good vittles, love, and kissin',
Are waiting at the end of my ride

Move 'em on, head 'em up
Head 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Count 'em out, ride 'em in,
Ride 'em in, count 'em out,
Count 'em out, ride 'em in

Keep movin', movin', movin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them dogies movin'
Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope, throw, and brand 'em
Soon we'll be living high and wide.
My hearts calculatin'
My true love will be waitin',
Be waitin' at the end of my ride.


I digress - my swift came and I did much rolling of yarn - see below for results!

The Rawhide Oingo Boing Challenge is over - thanks folks!

First Felting

Lookie there - felted fuzzy feet - they were almost felted them too small - the roomie was helping since they are his fuzzy feets and thought they needed to be a little smaller - thank goodness felting stretches a little before drying

There is my Booga Bag drying upside down on a box - I will take a picture when it is totally done with the handle too!
