We missed the bus........

What a beautiful day it was yesterday! And it looks like it will be again today. We played outside all day and got a ton of fresh air. That's probably why we missed the bus this morning. Unfortunately, none of us are moving with much speed in my house, and off it went without us. Mom's taxi, to the rescue!

My chicklet snapped a picture of me knitting on the porch yesterday. How nice it was to be outside and enjoy the day. I was using my little one's "beginner" needles on the flip-flop saga project. They are the best for not slipping. I feel like I have to get these done, since Spring is here and our toes are showing again. Once it really does get warmer, I hardly ever wear anything but flip-flops or sandals. Can't wait to be in shorts again! Summer is never long enough and winter drags.... As my little one puts it, "We aren't winter people."

I must get a hold of my blogger buddy, Karen, and ask more questions about how to make socks. I have yet to tackle that project and would like to try. I looked into joining a class in my town, but can't seem to find one. Ponchos, sweaters, even scarf classes. But, no sock knitting classes! I know there are many different ways to go about it. Toe up. Two circular needles. Double points.... Where do I begin? I want an EASY pattern that will show me how to do the basics. Making socks kind of goes against me wanting to see my toes and wearing flip-flops, but I figure if it is another one of those projects like my pillowcase edging, it'll be winter by the time I finish them! Well, off to start my day. I put all the laundry and dishes off from yesterday and now they have doubled. Groan.............

It was a great day to sit outside and knit yesterday - you look so comfy there. (I was stuck at a 6 hour indoor party - blaaa). For socks, this site helped me get through my first pair!!

I'll e-mail you about adding links to your post - it's a lot like adding links to your side-bar, so you won't have any problems. :)

Happy Monday, and a beautiful sunshiney day it is out there in CT. It appears you stole my California sun...

Good luck on your first pair of socks!
