Break on Through

To paraphrase Jim Morrison and The Doors I finally Broke on Through to The Other Side. The other side of my knitting block to be exact.

With thanks to all my knitting friends out here for their support and understanding, I finished my two hats I hadn't been working on for our local charity. Our knitting group has a get together at Kim's house tomorrow night where we are turning in our projects and I have two. I know two doesn't sound like much but I've never made hats before and so this is an accomplishment for me. I'll take pictures tomorrow.

Speaking of breaking through, MFB's Maple Leafs finally broke their 6 game losing streak last night by defeating Tampa Bay 5-4. He didn't see the game as he was playing hockey.

My Avalanche are on their second game of a 3 game home stand and they won their first game on Monday night by defeating the Hurricanes 5-2. That was a late night for me. At this very moment they are playing St Louis and leading 3-1 4-1 in the 3rd period. They really need to win these 3 straight as they are not sitting pretty in the NW.

Glad to hear you got out of the knitting funk. I was there not too long ago and it's not fun. I kept thinking I wanted to knit but I wasn't properly enthused enough about anything to knit anything.

Two is two more than they would have gotten! Sheesh.

Knitting ennui finally gone, eh?

Maple Leafs? Maple Leafs? This is a name for a hockey team? Why not Puff Balls? Oh, I crack myself up.
