Just when you thought

My camera returning would mean a good picture! I wanted to show you what I cast on last night and alas, only have my camera phone to use here... Its part of Amy's Christmas gift. She already knows about it and the deal is, I'll start it, and she'll finish it. She's a knitter, not quite as obsessed as I may be, but you know, it doesn't hurt to tempt her with alpaca fiber and nice new bamboo needles which she'll get to keep.
Its another chevron scarf, but I figured it looks cool and is sort of close to UNH colors, where she is presently a freshman. Speaking of Amy (oh she's my step-sister, ps), I'm getting psyched for next week! Her and my Grandfather are flying down for Thanksgiving, which is always a great time at my Aunt and Uncle's house. I hope to have at least a foot (I'm multi tasking people!) of the scarf done before she gets here, so I can just hand off to her the whole kit and ka-boodle.
We'll see.
I went to a new LYS this past weekend for the grand opening. Nature's Yarn, in Fairfax was pretty nice. Its basically at the intersection of 29 and 50 (just south on the right) and for some reason I can't find the web site, which is pretty bare anyway. The exciting part, was that right next door was Tippy's Taco. The Tall Guy and I had a tasty lunch (and I don't really like Mexican, its true) before venturing into the Yarn store. The store itself was stocked with basics, had a great needle selection and had a ton of SWTC yarns in addition to a lot of Jitterbug, which I am a bit hesitant to buy now-a-days.
In the meantime, I have other FO's to show, but I'm going to hold on at least one until the recipient gets it. Though I know they aren't a reader, others are, which would then get a little confusing. My stepmom's Monkey's are on the heel flap now! I hope to get that done and blocked this weekend at well! Yay for actually finishing things!
I'm hoping the next week or so will lend itself to hanging out time with knitting. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
