Well people, I've got some pretty devastating news to share with you all. I've suspected as much for a while now, but this weekend Kate-the-Enabler finally confirmed that she would NOT be able to go to Rhinebeck with me this year, despite the good time we had together in 2008 (at least, I thought we had a good time!).
The silly rabbit has gone and gotten herself knocked up (AGAIN!) and will be delivering round or about Labour Day of 2009 (get it??? LABOUR day)
Can you believe the nerve, the gall... the sheer audacity of this woman???? Does our friendship mean NOTHING? I mean... she just up and creates a human life without consulting me, without even considering the impact it would have on my vacation plans!!! Nope! She seems to be under the impression that she and her husband get to make that decision!
Geez... I tell you. Some people are just incapable of thinking about anyone other than themselves, I guess.
Well, the upside of this is that you can bet your alpaca there's going to be some pretty intense baby knitting at casa de Dear over the coming months. I just need to wait for the ultrasound pictures, and then the selection process can begin in earnest. By the way, since Kate's already got 2 boys, we're going to need all your GIRL vibes, m'kay? Say it with me: Girl, girl, girl.
Well, now that I've got that off my chest (thanks for listening, y'all), on to knitting!
I finished the first of my Landscape Fire socks last week. I don't know if I mentioned it, but I know I haven't taken a picture yet, so here you go.
Love these socks. Yup, I sure do...
I won't bother with a picture of the slightly-longer-than-last-time stole, but I will say that I knit 28 rows last night, as opposed to "just" 21 (or 3220 stitches instead of 2415). Hah! I RULE!!!
We're leaving for Florida in 4 weeks. As far as the stole goes, I'm not worried. But there's another area that's going to need some attention in the coming weeks.
My wardrobe!!! I bought these shorts last summer. While they weren't exactly snug or anything, they're ridiculously too big for me now (I've lost 12 pounds and counting over the past 6 months, with another 6 to go to achieve my goal).
Hmmmmm.... maybe I should knit myself a teensy bikini or something?
Happy Knitting Everyone! I've got 21 rows to knit.
