Thanks for the nice comments on LD's new sock. I was moving along pretty quickly on it, but it looks big around. After school, she'll try it on, and if it isn't huge, I'll keep going. I should probably also say, the people across the street didn't choose to chop down the trees. The city made that decision for some reason.
My camera came! I love the HP people! I took a picture of a little swatch of handdyed wool that I keep in a bowl SP made for me. See the little spider? Cute. I missed that one from Halloween. Here are my walls. They are not done, but I think they will be soon! See the blue paint tape? That's so our stripes aren't wonky. Hubby has the day off tomorrow, so I'm thinking that the taping and painting will be done tomorrow, then next week all of the junk will go back up on the walls. The dark wall is not getting stripes. I'll share another picture when it's all done, and looking pretty! I had a fun time knitting this morning with Carrie. I was invited to join her and another friend for more visiting, but I said I had to do housework. How boring. I almost turned around and went back. Well, the housework is done(ish), but I should have stayed. Next time, I'll do the stupid housework later, and hang out with the girls. We have to make some time that Cindy can join us, too. Her very first sock is speeding along. She can even fix her mistakes. That's something every knitter needs to be able to do.
Speaking of handknitted socks: I won some yarn from knitting for the dutchicans! I forgot that some really awesome people donated prizes. I never win anything. Really, I'm 33, and I've won about 3 things in my whole life, so Yay! I'm excited. I'm not sure who donated the prize I'm getting, but it's Gypsy Knits Superwash Sock Yarn. Wowie! Thank you to the generous person who donated it, and to the person who drew my name. Hehe, that sounds like an awards speech.
Well, better go do the Mom stuff, and get ready to get the kids. It is so amazingly gorgeous out here today. November in Michigan is never over 50. Well, it is today! Yay, we're going to walk, and breathe the fresh air before Mother Nature realizes that Michigan isn't getting hit with crappy weather!
p.s. to del. I just got your comment on the last post. You were discussed at knitting today. 'Cuz you're so darn cute! That sweater looks so amazing on you!! Thanks for the compliments on the socks, too.
I'll probably be busy painting tomorrow, so everyone have a great (knit-filled) weekend!
