One sock is nearly done. I want to cast off today or tomorrow. We’ll see if that works out.
My sweater is stalled, as I’ve been derailed by socks. Its okay, I’m willing to work with that.
Yesterday I went to check out a new yarn store by me that recently opened.
A Tangled Skein was nice, well stocked and a friendly knitting store. I found their prices to be only okay and their sock yarn section to be a bit dull. They had that new Tofutsies with the shrimp shells (yeah, I’m not kidding, have you seen this? ) along with a ton of other SWTC but, other wise, no Claudia
’s, no Lorna’s, no Koigu etc. The woman who was working (she may have owned it) was super sweet and nearly sent me running to the Noro selection which was pretty awesome but, not what I was looking for.
I just found out that while I’m home in June for Little Sister’s HS graduation my HLP (also known as the other half of my brain) will be in Boston from San Francisco! (left: The last time I saw her in November) How EXCITING
is this? We’re going to overlap for a day or two and I can’t wait. Twice a year is not enough for someone I lived with for the better part of 5 years.
It also looks like I’ll be back in New England for at least a week, closer to two if I can talk my boss into letting me go the end of July/beginning of August. Another one of my girls (Miss Em) will be home then, and in the middle of planning her wedding/having a shower and all that good stuff (I need a Maid of Honor dress, any solid colour, suggestions are welcome!), I’m looking forward to time on the beach. I know, July is months away, but I need to be excited for
something!!! I don’t think Lucky Girl will be coming with her on the plane however (pic) and we all know how I feel about her. Sigh.
I’m currently seeking swimmies for what looks to be my first potential sailing excursion this Friday. I’m a little nervous, but I think it should be lots of fun and I’m hoping that my Dad’s non-sea-sick genes are in me. Wish me luck.
