My blog host recently added a mobile posting feature, which is awesome, because, currently, I'm pretty mobile.
Last weekend, I headed westward for a visit with my bestie/"sister by a different mister".
Long story short: she fell in love with a boy...they got married... And they're living, happily ever after, in Wyoming. You might be thinking, "¿¡Wyoming!?", which basically sums up the reaction I had when she told me her plans to relocate from sunny San Diego to... the second least densely populated state in the nation (Alaska is first). To say the least, I was skeptical. Turns out, it's pretty beautiful.
The scenery is incredible. And, downtown, while small, is charming; there are lots of small businesses and neat old buildings. Most importantly, there are TWO yarn shops!
Apparently, the town she lives in shuts down on Mondays, so we were only able to get into one of the shops. It's a new addition to her area. They, unfortunately, didn't stock any, "Wyoming" yarn. But, the owner and shop attendees were completely sweet and very friendly. I left with some goodies for the flight home, and I'm pretty sure my friend found her new favorite vice; she also left equipped with yarn and needles. ;-)
There is more trip-related knitting content to post. But, it's all trapped on my SD card until I get back to my computer. Here's a tease:
I'm up and running, err knitting, rather. Last night, while Mike was engaging in ritualistic activities with the guys, I took advantage of having the house to myself. I curled up in bed with my laptop, Netflix, and a hank of 'uneven' sock yarn I purchased a while back at a Dream in Color Seconds Sale, and I cast-on a Serina cardigan. As you might be able to tell, we're getting along quite well.
It's May. Already. Where did the time go? I don't feel I had a very productive April. I did finish a pair of socks. I also managed to get a sweater FINISHED (Hallelu!!). I am, however, shy of my monthly goal by a sewing project due to laziness and/or complete lack of motivation.
If you're keeping track of the score:
SOCKS: 4 pairs (5 if you count this re-knit),SWEATERS: 3, SEWING:3
I've got some catching up to do if I want to stay in the game, but with 2/3 of the year remaining, there's time for a come-back, right?
I should probably pick out and start some May projects so I don't contribute further to the deficit.
There is no pattern to this sweater. It was just something I needed to work out of my system.
