  • So it seems like I’ve become a once a week poster. Sorry about that, I don’t really know what happens to all my time. I have been knitting a lot lately, I finished the first Easter Egg sock, on Easter Sunday no less. I decided to go with a picot edging, very girly.

Completed Easter Egg Sock“>I’ve started the second but haven’t gotten very far. And I started the hemp socks. I’m using a 2.25mm needle (Size 1). The pattern I chose was Wendyknits Double Eyelet Pattern which is a free download on the Loopy Ewe website. I am liking them so far, I figured I can actually wear these to work and hopefully when I wash them they will soften up and not be scratchy.Beginning of Black Hemp Sock“>Sorry, I realize it’s very hard to see the pattern on the solid black yarn. Maybe if we get a superbright sunny day it will work. But that is not today, very rainy and cloudy.

  •  Simon continues to improve, thanks for all of your words of support.  It is slow going, he is still very afraid of any noises that come from the kitchen.  But he is showing signs of his playful nature and that makes me so happy I can’t even describe it.
  • The Yarn Harlot is coming to the Barnes and Noble in Carmel on April 29th.  If you don’t know who Stephanie Pearl McPhee is, click her link on the side of my page and check her blog out.  She is one of the funniest writers I’ve ever read and she is pretty much a rock star of the online knitting world.  It is a really big deal that she is coming to talk and sign her new book and if you don’t have plans, I seriously suggest you attend.
  • I finally found some (old) new music.  Brendan Benson is a member of The Raconteurs with Jack White, but he is also a solo performer.  His CD “The Alternative to Love” is amazing and the song “I don’t know what I’m looking for” is featured in the new iPod Touch ad.  Check him out, I dig it a lot.
  • Not surprised by Chekeze getting voted off of the Idol.  My favorites to win the whole thing are the David’s and Brooke White.  David Cook is just impressing me more and more every week.  He could be this season’s Daughtrey.
  • Happy Thursday Everyone!  p.s. Simon is up on the desk helping me blog.  That makes me smile!!

So glad to hear that Simon is doing better!

Love the sock (as usual) – very pretty colors.
