It's My Birthday!

Well, here is another one come and about gone. Haven't really done anything today, but work and eat cake. I won't bore you with the details of my birthday, just know that I am now really middle aged. But its better than the alternative, right?

Birthdays are not my forte. This Saturday is the Rugrat's 10th birthday and I still haven't started getting his party together. I always wait until the last minute. We have ready made parties anyway, lots of family who will show up at the drop of a hat. I think the pool and cake will be the order of the day.

I Think I Can, I Think I Can!

I have started my first pair of socks...and they are MONKEY. I am using Knitpicks Sock Memories yarn (color discontinued) and have had it in stash for about 2 years. I love the green (and the soft shades of pink that you can't see in the pictures) in this colorway.

These colors look great in the Monkey pattern and also in the stripes of the heel and foot. I love it. Great bus knitting.

I just hope I don't fall into the "second sock syndrome". I am almost finished with the first sock and can't wait to start the second one...But I know how I am..."ADD Knitter" thats what they call me. I want these for a gift, but I only have a week left for the "Birthday girl", so I have to hurry.

As the little engine says..."I think I can, I think I can".

The Wheels on the Bus Go 'Round and 'Round

I started riding the bus today. Its an Express bus to downtown and drops me off right at the Capitol. Unfortunately, there was a terrible accident on the interstate this morning and we got a late start, but I was still on time for work. I got caught in the rain waiting for the bus for the ride home and traffic was a bear. But I didn't have to drive...there was no cursing or high blood pressure going on, just knitting.

Its knitting time. I worked on some new April May wristwarmers and almost got one finished on the ride to and from work. I am really going to enjoy this.

Yarn: Knitpicks Shine Sport Color: Sky

Needles: US #3 (using a smaller needle.. want these for a teenager with small wrists)
