i just realized it has been 10 whole days...

...since I updated everyone on who and what and when and where and most important of all ...WHY...
I have been knitting...and I finally got my secret pal... Whom I can't wait to spoil...
I have not finished the socks...But they will be finished after tonight...And the green regalia will be photographed tomorrow...I promise!!!


I realized something knitting the socks....I am the kind of person who does this once. Once because I need to see for myself if I can actually do whatever it is I set my heart on. But then, every now and then, I need to repeat the process. And then I see the beauty in the object ...Not the struggle.. I enjoy the action the second time so much more than the first. Little details that were once so blurry become clear and understandable...So now I feel the need to do socks all the time...SOCKS FOR EVERYONE!!...nah..momentary inspiration at best...wink wink...
Hokey I know, but hey.
But anywhay.....
These are some photos Clinton took of me knitting and one of Oscar because my knitting is not going to make your heart swoon...
Happy Birthday Sweetfart! I hope your thirties are as exciting as your twenties!!!
Crazy flowers in the background...And can you see the fish we grilled?? SOOOO yummy! I will post those photos later on tomorrow..I am off to finish those dern socks!!

Have you tried the magic loop method of knitting socks? Are you interested in it? I do it all the time with all of the socks I knit and I will never go back to DPNs

Happy Birthday Sweetfart! LOL

You must do the Magic Loop for socks, if not just 2 circ's. MUCH MUCH Better...
