Back in Action

I really didn’t forget about the blog…ok maybe I did. But I’m back now and I have a lot going on. This week has been crazier than most because this is what happens every time someone is out of the office. And on top of that, there is a showing at my boss’s upscale hugeish house, and since he is the one out of town, I have to finish getting the house ready for the showing. Ugh…I’m dealing

In other news, I an almost finished with the second Monkey sock. Wait, I never posted about finishing the first one, did I? Wow, I’m behind. Well I finished the first one the night before we went to the Stitch N Pitch game because I didn’t want to do a toe in the car. I cast on for the second sock at the game and it has been going smoothly. I can’t say enough about how much I love this yarn and pattern. They are easily going to be my favorite pair so far. I was tempted to go for another pair of monkey’s right away, but instead I am going to knit Socks of Kindness in some Jojoland Melody. It’s not superwash but I love the long color changes. Here is the first sock finished:

Now about the Stitch N Pitch game. It was a blast! I did not see any Ravelers, but we still enjoyed ourselves. No pictures of the game (except one quite blurry one) because we just relaxed and had a good time. The bags they gave out were substantially better this time around (no fun fur!), and thanks to some generous people in front of us, we scored 2 more bags. They had grabbed the last of the bags that were not given out, about six of them, and gave us a couple. I had the idea to check back for more bags, but they beat me to it. I split everything between me and Angie, since she was not able to make it again this year. Between all the bags there were six skeins of yarn, 4 of which were Araucania Ranco sock yarn.

In store for me this week is a much needed haircut, it’s been almost a year, and another knit night. I really am excited to get my hair cut tonight. I am going to a friend of a friend, who is awesome, and I want to cut it short. I thought it was short last time, but I want it shorter, and will possibly add some highlights. We’ll see how it goes tonight. I am kinda vague on what I want so hopefully she will know what will look good on me. Tomorrow night is our knit night and I am hoping that the girls we met up with last week are going. All of the sudden there are knitters in the area! I had a blast knitting with them for a little while last Friday.

Well that’s all I have for now. I will leave you with a picture of T lighting some fireworks from the 4th of July. He was so happy to buy some fireworks for the first time since we moved here. You can’t get these kinds of fireworks back in California!

Wow almost done with the monkeys and I really like the next pattern you have choose the Socks of Kindness.

It looks like you scored at the stitch and pitch, very nice yarn.

What is it with guys and fireworks? I don't know which is worse my son or my husband ;).
