Mail Goodies

Look at what I got today!


From left to right: Sock Garden Zinnia, Sock Garden Star Gazer Lily, Sock Memories Grandma, Blues Parade and Forest Parade. All are from Knit Picks of course.
SO...... I guess I've got some sock knitting to do! Hehehe. I found a couple of patterns that I think I'm going to try. One is from this site http://craftoholic.blogspot.com/2005/09/all-about-socks.html. I love the spiral look. I'm just waiting for the site owner to email me the pattern. I'll probably also do a couple more jaywalkers. As for the others.....I dont know. I guess as I see the patterns I'll decide.
I'm still working on the hourglass sweater. It's coming along. I'm on my last decrease section before I start the yolk. I finished hubby's wool socks. Went to take a picture of them and they were gone. I guess he was so excited he wore them to work the next morning. He said he loved them and they were probably the best fitting socks he's ever owned. AWWWWWWWWWWWWW. heheee. I dont know how anybody can say wool socks are comfy....i say they're ITCHY. The raw wool ones I mean. Not the nice soft wool. The next purchase I have to make is that book Socks Soar with Two Circular Needles. I guess I'm going to have to break down and get it. There's not a whole lotta help online with doing this method. And hey, it's not going to hurt having another knitting book around. :)
Thats it for now folks. Sorry its taken me almost a month to post! Man I suck!!!

So I've started the Hourglass sweater. I've already frogged it and restarted. Duh, I cant count. hehehe. I'm also still working on the mr's second sock. uggg. Second socks suck. Even after 6 months from the first one. oops. I cant wait to learn how to do 2 at once. Should be interesting. Thats actually all the knitting I have on the go right now. I've got lots planned, but am keeping myself back from starting them.

So our renovations are still going on. Here's a shot of the bathroom so far.
We still need to rip out that sink and counter and put in a pedestal sink. And the place of course needs crackfill, window trim and cupboards behind the door. And paint. I have NO idea what to paint it. I think I'm the worst person in the world when it comes to choosing paint colors. I kinda want to bring the beach colors into it. But dont know how. The light and new medicine cabinet (which i LOVE - it is brushed chrome, oval and is a medicine cabinet!) are both brushed chrome and everything else white. SO....any ideas? I like dark wicker but would that look stupid? To many different textures? AGGGG!
Anyways, the rest of the windows are changed and the siding is off the house and the new insulation is on. Now we cant side the house till the weather gets warmer cause we still need to build on the front extension. SO my house will look a little different for a little bit, but i love it! Just changing the windows has made a world of difference.
And here's my BAD Bo. He is sooo full of mischief. Cracks me up. I feel like i have another toddler running around! Speaking of toddlers, my oldest is driving me crazy. She is soo bad. Wont eat anything i put in front of her and tests everything i say. Everyone says to have patience, but man...i'm starting to go crazy!! Shes only 2. How am I going to get through two terrible 2's in a row?
