Quick, fun project

Dear Cynthia,

YAY for the Colts! Either they have a really great PR department there in Indianapolis, or it really is a thoughtful organization, bringing their entire staff to the SuperBowl (including the janitors), and having a coach who never raises his voice or curses. Nice to see! We had a homemade pizza party, and we rooted for the Colts, because, as you know, our six year old was born in Indiana!

Over the weekend, I caught part of "America's Sweethearts" on tv. In the movie, Julia Roberts knits a little bit, and she is a "thrower".....just sayin'.... :-)In knitting news, I'm working on a "Mad Money Bag". I've knit with beads before, but I've never had to string them onto my yarn first. This is just a fun little project, and I actually use little bags like these, to carry my cell phone and a little cash around in summer when I'm out at the park with the boys. Very fun to knit..... Well, it was more fun when I was working on the part with the beads. Now it's 120 rows of garter stitch.....but very quick.....

It's so cold today (-20 on our thermometer when we woke up this morning, wind chills much lower than that) that they closed Madison Schools (and all surrounding schools, including ours). I have to wonder if I have a geek for a kid when my six year old started crying because school was cancelled. I guess that's a good thing, though he's over it now.....

Warmest regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Oooh! Cute bad. I keep threatening to try beads but haven't yet. Would this be a good starter project? Stay warm!

I hope you're staying warm. This weather is nuts.

Lovely little project. Beads scare me (geez, beads scare me, zippers scare me, cables scare me...what a chicken!) a little, but that's so cute!

I think its a pretty good idea not that there aren't other sites out there that already do something similar but I think it might catch on here pretty well.
