I did a crazy thing....

Ok when have you known me not to do crazy things.

I bought a new car but it was about that time for me to do so...and no that wasn't the really crazy thing, but how many people do you know buy a new car and buy the exact same car that they just got rid of....ummm I did!!

Well there was a couple of good reasons for it. The new car when I drove it off the lot on wednesday night had 1 mile on it...ok now it has just a few more, but thats ok too.

But today it officially feels like my car. I installed the Sirius, which made me happy because I hate terrestial's all about the Sirius!!!

I finished my socks!!!

I just had to post some pictures. I finaly finished my 1st pair of socks.

Yes they were torture, they were awful, and terrible, and the 1st sock was frogged about a million times.

I didn't have 2nd sock syndrome and I now have my very 1st pair of hand knit socks, which I love. I can't wait to make another pair.

Because I didn't have enough yarn I had to go buy more.

I know I probably shouldn't have bought more yarn, but I did.

I found out about the best sale about 2 months ago and have been waiting patiently for it. Farmhouse Yarns had an awsome sale, it was by invitation only and she had bins and bins of yarn, just about anything you could think of....I found. I was able to get a really good deal. I save myself over $200.00 by buying it today.

I only had to take an hour drive to East Haddam to go get it. I even got to see some of the sheep that it came from.

I can't wait to start knittin with it. I don't know what I'm going to make, but I'm sure I will figure something out.

Whale Watch Weekend....aka...WWW

It was a great weekend!!!

One of my friends asked me if we could go away for the weekend and go on a whale watch, so I took my little travel agent skills and planned us a trip.

We stayed in Danvers MA and drove up early saturday morning, had alot of fun. After an easy ride up, and a late lunch, we went to get our boat....which was seven seas whale watch we saw lots of whales.

Then it was off to bed, the next day we got up and went to explore Salem. We wandered around the city a little bit and we walked up and down Essex Street and did a little shopping, then off to the Cemetary, I saw the graves of some famous people, so that was cool too.

All in all it was a great weekend, and I can't wait to do it again

Stitch and Pitch

Ok, so I had my own little version of the real thing....actually I do this probably 2 times a month or so.

We have a local independant team in town, so we go a lot. And I ususally bring my knitting.

But yesterdays game was a little more special than ususal.

I finished a sock!!!! Ok, so it was just one sock, but it's done, and that's all that matters. I can't believe it's done. I hope the next one is a little bit easier. I'm sure it will be.

And yes, that is my foot.....with the game behind it. And in case you were wondering, its the New Haven County Cutters....and they won the game.

Who ever said socks were easy to knit....LIED!!!!

Ok, so I deceided to knit my 1st pair of socks. Ok thats all well and good, but I'm about 12 hours of knitting in and I'm driving myself crazy.

I've got some progress going, but I really thought I was not going to make it when I turned the heel, the flap was frogged about 5 times and lets not even talk about turning it. WOW!!!

But now I think I finally got a handle on it and I'm doing better. I like the way they are turning out, so maybe in a day or so I'll have it done, and not to worry, I won't end up with SSS (Second Sock Syndrome)

Wish me luck.
