Just a place where I can sit and write my thoughts on my newest passion. . . . . knitting. Hopefully, I will better document my progress throughout knitting and get in touch with others as obsessed as I am!

So now we'll see

Well, I have the yarn:

Malabrigo Kettle Dyed Pure Merino Wool Worsted in "Glazed Carrot". The color is a mix of the colors shown here. The centered is slightly too brownish and the home pix of the yarn are a little too bright. You'll have to trust me on the color, kay?

And I have chosen the pattern:

I even got gauge on a swatch (although I had to switch from size 8 to size 9) - (I need to learn to loosen up)

Now I need to find the TIME!!!!!!!

Should I just join in on this???

So, the birthday celebration was a success. He's old and tall enough to drive a go kart (real gas powered, no tethered track go kart) all on his own. It was pretty cool to watch him go although DH and I had to slow down our go karts and egg him on to "floor it" - wait a few years and we will be reversing that I am SURE! ;->

We played a game of putt putt. The waterfalls, ships, and other sculptures, etc were very cool and it was a well kept course.

DS got to play a few arcade games - here's he's trying to skateboard on a virtual skateboarding game. Very complicated!

We took him to eat at his favorite restaurant for Dinner - Carrabas! Here we are waiting to place our order.
And here we are at home with his cake. I baked the cake. I never bake cakes on birthdays. It's kind of pitiful looking but tasted damn good!

Oh, and, why yes, that IS the top that I knit on vacation this year. Thank you so much for noticing!

Something to smile about on a yucky Sunday

My cousin sent me this link.

Thought you all might enjoy it as well.

BTW, I really do STILL knit. I have done 2 1/2 dishcloths for the new house. That's about all I have the attention span to do right now but, it's nice.
