New Obsession

My latest project is close to being finished! (thank god!) Today I will take advantage of the good natured Yarn Lounge folks to help me seam up my first seamed sweater! Once seamed, I'll post some photos of my copy rather than the Interweave photo.

Although I have tons of knitting projects half started or waiting in the wings, I've been temporarily enticed by a new obsession. The hubby just bought Rock Bank II for the Xbox. Typically, I could care less about gaming; I think it's a huge waste of valuable knitting and reading time. However, this game is awesome for anyone who is not musically inclined, but always wanted to be in a band. I have a really cool punk avatar (and anyone who knows me will laugh since I'm the furthest thing away from punk) with red hair in pigtails, a tattoo, jean miniskirt with studded belt and punk t shirt. I love it - the hubby and I have a band called the Mookies and the Pookies. I'm the lead singer and he plays guitar. We go on tour, and with each venue earn points, fans, buses and planes. Why am I so obsessed? I don't know but it's taking up valuable knitting time! Any advice for the addiction is most appreciated :)
