Whoa, Where'd I Go?

Good to be Flexible

As it turned out, The Mister did not have to work his Friday off. So, we loaded up the Mayhem Mobile and headed out to Indy to see my Siblings.

The Mister did his usual surrogate husband thing at my Sister's house (that would be fixing sinks and such... dirty, dirty mind.) And then we did a Zoo tour.
The kids got tattoo'd...

And tried to measure up.

My Brother looks pretty good for a guy with a Titanium leg. Still nice and tall. You should see the star-scar on the back of his leg. I will take a picture next time. It was way too disturbing to see this time to even think about taking a picture.

Hey, Kids! Don't Drink and Drive!

I knit a bit on the way, finished an eggplant hat for Bella.

It is really purple and green. Something weird happens with the afternoon light, lately.

Then, I finally finished my Claudia Handpainted socks.

As for what is to be next...

Well, I am working on The Mister's Blue Cable Sweater. Seems like I am going to be working on it for a while. I have been doing 2 rows a night... y e a h ... it is going to be a while. It is just that *insert whine* following a chart, in the evening, when I am tired and achey... *keep whining* it just proves that I love him. He'll get it someday.

Oh, yes, I could be knitting a baby sweater, but brilliant me, I have tangled up the size 7 Crystal Palace Bamboo needles (that are awesome, that I bought to make baby sweaters) in the Mister's Blue Cable Sweater... hmmm... what to do?

In the meantime, I suppose I will begin another pair of socks... maybe that Rock, maybe that sparkle. Maybe I will be inspired.

Once, when my best friend and her hubby were visiting, he fulfilled one of my all time fantasies -- I came home and found my kitchen spotlessly cleaned. What? What did you think?
