There was a Birthday Celebration!!
My Mother turned 76...can you BELIEVE it?? I am SO lucky to have a wonderful mother!!!!!
AND she he has NO wrinkles!! (click the pic to enlarge....you'll see I am NOT joking)!! Sure hope I received that gene...guess time will tell!! We all went out for lunch then home for Birthday cake and a great visit!!
I finished a pair of socks for the Sock A Month KAL
Trekking XXL in the Twin Rib Pattern
AND.......after a conversation with my friend Laura ...(who needs to update her blog with all her fabulous socks and updated pics of Master Coal)...but I digress..........during the course of our conversation we naturally came around to the subject of knitting.
In a nutshell, Laura feels that knitting needles are lonely when not in the presence of yarn....and feels that it is better to have lot's of UFO's/projects on the needles/new cast ons than to have needles languishing away. (Me thinks she doth justify too much).........
So I cast on 7 pairs of socks!!!!!!!!! (A pitifully inadequate number considering there are SOME with socks in various states in the DOUBLE DIGITS).......but anything to help out a friend to feel better!! LOL!!
L to R: JoJo Land, Mystery yarn, Supersocke 100, Koigu
L to R: Colinette Jitterbug, Fleece Artist, Fortissima
I may need to order more needles!!!! LOL!!!!!!
