WOW! Thanks to all of you who have visited my blog and wished me a Happy Blogiversary. It certainly set a new record for number of comments received!! And it is so fun to read them all! I've also enjoyed visiting many of the blogs of those who left comments. Hope to get to all of them eventually..... There are still a few days to enter my contest for the Skinny Duet yarn! Scroll down to my last post for more details, or you can check it out here.
We are back home after a wonderful time with our friends!! As fun as it was to fondle all that yarn in the Loopy Room, the best part was just being with a dear friend! (And her family...)
Now I am home trying to decide where to stash my new stash. Here is what ended up coming home with me. Ought to keep me busy for a few weeks.....
I decided it was time to group all of my sock yarn together. I put it into a 3-tier shelf unit I have in the family room and it fit perfectly!
THEN I realized I hadn't added my new stash yet. Oops. It's in the basket in the front of the tier until I can perhaps order a bigger size!
We did get some knitting in when I was in St. Louis. Here is the progress I'm making on my Peppermint Mocha sock. I have decided that I am a 2-circular knitter. Once I got the feel of how to hold the yarn and switch needles etc.. I MUCH prefer it over dpn's.
In other news, a friend once told me that a mother is only as happy as her saddest child. I certainly have found this to be true over the years. However, if the saying was a mother is as happy as her happiest child, then today I would be (and am!) ecstatic!! Because today is the day that Ryan's fiance returns from her 7 week missions trip to Africa. In fact, he is on his way with her family right now to pick her up at the airport. I cannot wait to see her and to hear all about her trip!! And it will be SO GOOD to see the two of them together again. Ryan just looked like 1/2 of himself while she was gone!!
Lots to do today around the house. I hope to start photographing my stash and projects in anticipation of my Ravelry invite which should come within the week!!
And, of course, I must spend a little time loving on Sumo who waited expectantly each day for us to come home. He's a happy camper now!!
Until Next Time...
P.S. I'm working on a Blog Button. The first prototype is on the left. May change a bit, but I'm liking it so far. A real team effort this past week!!
