Today has been a good mail day!! I got one of the yarns I traded for on Ravelry and I got my Zune case and armband. I really wanted to get that armband today before I go workout. I hate having to hold my Zune and I always drop it when I do. The yarn I got is Cherry Tree Hill in Life’s a Beach. I was so excited that someone wanted to trade that for my charcoal gray Alpaca Sox. I liked the alpaca yarn, but the color was not for me. And who am I kidding knitting alpaca socks in Florida? So I am very happy with my first trade on Ravelry. I also traded my Claudia’s Handpainted in Boot camp, but I haven’t received that yarn yet.
Last weekend was pretty good, as usual. I met up with Angie again, (what is it with us sneaking off every Saturday?) but this time it was to hand over a computer and grab lunch. We did have enough time to sit and knit while her son played in the mall and her hubby shopped. We even got to stop in AC Moore before heading off to the mall. I am glad we stopped in there. Since there are virtually no knitters/crafters in the Brevard County area, it is closing and they were having a big sale. Everything is still only 25% off but they had all the books 50% off. I got Easy Baby Knits for only $8. I will definitely be checking back to see how much they mark down everything.
The only think that I have been working on is the Monkey Sock. I can’t tell you how much I love this pattern. Now I realize why people knit it over and over again. I will definitely be knitting this again.
I have just turned the heel. I hope that I can finish this before Saturday. I don’t want to have to knit the toe at the game. I knit in public better when I don’t have to think too much about it. Oh yea, we got tickets to go to the Stitch N Pitch game on Saturday in Tampa. I am really happy we got to go again this year. It was a lot of fun last year. I even got the Ravelry name button but I don’t know if it will make it here in time. After the game the hubby and I are driving to his grandparents house for the night. He will be golfing on Sunday morning with his grandpa. His grandpa just amazes me…He is over 80 years old, just got both hips replaced, and has still never lost to T in golf. He got a 79 last week! This guy is never going to stop playing.
That’s all I have for now. I am going to try and get in a post before Saturday, but if not, Have A Good Weekend!
