A friend of mine used this as her status on Facebook this morning and I think it sums everything up that I'm feeling about recent international events beautifully.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We went to the Liberty Antique Festival on Saturday. I'm afraid I didn't take my camera, but it was a beautiful day and the vendors had a lot of amazing stuff....most of which was out of my very practical budget. Sunday was spent crocheting.
Have I mentioned lately how I am really beginning to enjoy Tuesday nights. After a long day at work, because lets face it they are all long, I head home and fix dinner for my men. Then I grab my yarney bag and head over to Panera's for some hooking fun. It's so wonderful to spend time with these ladies! And guess what?!?! Dawn and I are turning two knitters into hookers!! That's right folks, they are coming over to the dark side! I love watching their enthusiasm and excitement as they are learning and achieving! Granny Squares and wash clothes abound.
The knitters are going to return the favor and tomorrow I get to venture into new territory and get my first lesson on sock making! I am so totally over the moon at the prospect. I was in the store this week-end to get my needles and sock yarn and there are sooo many cool sock yarns. Such great colors and textures. Mel makes such great socks and she's going to get me started on magic looping, whatever that is. I'm sure it will be magic if I can figure it out. I don't know why I'm so intimidated by knitting, but I am.
As many of you know, I've been working on gifts. You've gotten little glimpses here and there, and today is no different. Alice has been making these beautiful cowls and she has inspired me to do the same. Mine is a little different and is for a VERY special person. This person LOVES the color red, so....
Well, I've got to get back to the real world. I will let you know how things turn out tomorrow night. Hopefully you won't feel my frustration vibe across the yarn world! Have a wonderful afternoon!
