Happy February

I have finished three projects so far in 2009. I finished the Clapotis, Chickadee Cowl and Japanese Vines. I am in the process of knitting Rivolo right now. Rivolo is by Anne Hanson from Knitspot. I am using Handmaiden's Casbah. It is a very soft yarn. The pattern is very easy but I keep forgetting to do a K2tog or do too many. I don't know how many times I have had to frog back a row or two from not having enough stitches or way too many.
Like usual, I have been hanging around Ravelry. I've enjoyed all the people that I have met over there. I am so excited because in April, I get to go The Loopy Ewe for Spring Fling. DH and DD are coming along with. They have all ready been informed that they are going their way and I am going mine. It's a knitting weekend and I can't wait to meet all my fellow Ravelers.
The Japanese Vines scarf is for my ISE7 pal along with the Chickadee Cowl. Both were very quick knits. I knitted the Chickadee is just over a 24 hour period.
Last night, I blocked the Japanese Vines Scarf using blocking wires. That was the first time I had ever used those. Blocking really opened up the pattern.
I've been bowling again this season. My average is higher than last. I also just bought a new bowling ball so I can learn how to throw a hook. I am hoping to increase my average. I did miss a 200 game by 2 pins this season (heartbreaking)
The pictures of my projects are on my Ravelry page. I'm wizgirl over there. I will post pictures on here in a couple of days.

Oh, I'm jealous! You'll have to tell us all about it, of course. (The timing is just all wrong for me...)
