Back in Blogland

I have been without internet access since the wee hours of Friday morning and going nuts. It's just amazing how much we use the net getting through our day to day. When you don't have realize just how much it is used. how could we ever have lived without this invention years and years ago (kind of sad??). On the upside to lack of interent, we apparently have the fastest highspeed in the city. We had sympatico before but I think it was dsl light so the cable is alot faster (so far, we'll see how it goes). Unfortunately I don't have any exciting knitting content to talk about (and you'd think with less computer time I would have something crazy knit up). The Army Girl hat is still on the needles and needs to be frogged and restarted. What really sucks is that it's like -50 degrees out in Manitoba right now so it would be nice to have it all finished so I can send the hat, mitts (which could probably really be used right now) and the rest of the Christmas parcel out to my best friend Kerri. Soon..soon...soon...

In the meantime...I've been tagged with a meme by Samantha and since it's been a while since I've done one here we go:
