Break From Knitting

OMG! I am going to take a much needed break from knitting. Hopefully a small break will give my fingers a rest, and my pocketbook. I have amassed a lovely stash of yarn, so I have decided to take a break and go slowly and work through my stocks of sock yarn. I will knit along with the Rockin' Sock Club, but the knitting will not consume my every waking thought and those little last drowsy moments before sleep takes over.
But here is the kicker internets, I have put my quilt frame back up in the living room, so my fingers will not be getting a rest. And I found a lovely piece of cross stitch I tucked away a long time ago, and will take me a long time to come. It is a full size or queen size piece of fabric (I don't quite remeber, and I don't want to look for the package) that is almost completely covered in cross stitches. There will be pictures and angry posts about how stupid this project is and how much I hate it, but for now I love it and am plugging along, getting stuff done.

There shall also be pictures of my monsterous quilt frame, that takes up 8 feet by 3 feet of my living room, and the husband is not happy. I had to move around some furniture to fit the beast into the room, and the husband hates my quirky moving of furniture.
I will say that I move the furniture in my house quite often. We have lived in the house for 2 years already, and I still can't figure out how to arrange my living room furniture. I move it in the middle of the day while he is at work, and he comes home and just stares at the room, and glances at me and shakes his head. He thinks I'm crazy and I think its fun.
Ok, I have jumped around my topics enough, and it has come to a close. I will continue to post pictures, of non knitted items, and rave about the awesomeness of the Rockin' Socks Club.
