I have officially decided to do the 52 Pair plunge 4 this year. It started on June 1st and I'm sad to say that I have yet to make a pair of socks. Why you ask is that? Well, I've been a little busy this month. I had a wedding last weekend and tons of family in town and lots of gatherings and on top of that I started a new job on the 7th as well. So with the new job consuming all of my time and it being summer and the kids are home all day driving me crazy I have my work cut out for me.

But, on the good side I have babies that I can knit socks for that are due this winter so that will help me get to my 52 pairs.

So with that said I did cast on a sock today. I started Wendy Johnson's Diagonal Lace socks which is also the pattern for the June KAL in the group Socks from the toe up KAL on Ravely.

This is a test knit pattern that will be available I do believe in the middle of May. It's very simple and beautiful and works up quickly on size 7 needles.

Some very weedy Pea's

OMG! Look at what the UPS man brought me today.


The bag on the far left and center are the following two wools.



The Third bag on the couch (far right) is a mystery wool that I had purchased from a lady on Ebay and it really turned out to be a nice fiber. There is 10.96 pounds of Fiber between these three bags.

Now this picture below is of my cormo that I have yet to receive as well as a metric tone of alpaca and my BFL.


I can't wait to get the rest in and play with it all. Now I just have to figure out where to put it until I get a chance to spin, spin, spin, spin, spin, spin, spin, spin, and spin some more. I think.. wait, I know I have more than enough fiber to keep me busy for a very long time.

If you have questions please don't be afraid to ask.

A trip to the toy store

Today I decided to take Trinity to Toys R Us to use her $25.00 Gift Certificate that she got for her birthday. Well here's what we came home with.......

Wow, You would think that would cost a lot of money. Well, take a look at my receipt.

Did you see the total. $1.70!!!! Yes,that is correct. I had a $25.00 gift certificate and a $3.00 off coupon that you get in the mail for having your kids signed up for their Birthday club. And, They had a sale for $20.00 off all Barbie folding scooters. Yes, I paid $.087 and $0.88 for each of the scooters. The tax on it was $1.75.

I don't think that I could have found a better deal anywhere for what I got.
