You can find me at the beach...
Or in the park or at the pool
Or any place that isn’t school.
Hello days packed full of sports
And days when I’m just lazybones
While eating melty ice cream cones.
Goodbye, homework --Lunchroom, too.

Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitting Workshop (Hardcover)....haven't delved into this one yet...
Knitter's Handbook : A Comprehensive Guide to the Principles and Techniques of Handknitting (Paperback) by Montse Stanley. The ultimate reference for knitters at every level-step-by-step directions and detailed instructional illustrations cover every aspect of knitting know-how. Includes a special "help!" section for the inevitable mishaps, and shows how to correct errors. They are not joking about this being the ultimate reference...every knitter needs this book...so many things I've never even heard of. The illustrations could be a bit better though.
The Knitters Book of Finishing Techniques (Spiral-bound) by, Nancie Wiseman. Love that this is spiral bound because it lays nicely on the table!:) Always a plus! Knitted one too many sweaters that scream "homemade"? Help is here! Finishing techniques are the key to turning out professional-looking projects. This comprehensive reference gives you the know-how you need to get gorgeous, polished results every time. This is my favorite book...out of all my knitting books this one ranks number 1! Perfect illustrations, pros and cons on different techniques, just love it!

a few butter pats
Place the fish on two large sheets of aluminum foil. Squeeze on some lemon juice and place the pats of butter on the salmon fillets. Seal the fillets well in the foil, and place the foil packet in the top wire basket of your electric dishwasher. DO NOT ADD SOAP OR DETERGENT. Close the dishwasher door, set the dishwasher on the hottest wash cycle, complete with drying cycle, and let it run through a full cycle. When the cycle is complete the fish will be cooked just right!!

Then it was so cute, I made another to place at the LYS. Its a cute "granny" type of decoration for them since the store is called Grandma's Yarns and Notions. Quick and easy pattern too, you can find it on my ravelry page. While I was crocheting them I watched Hannah Montana the Movie....what an awesome movie, soooo good. Even went and downloaded a few of the songs from itunes! Definitely will be watching it again and again! Even James and Jimmy watched it (I made them) and thought it was good!:)
