I also finished the socks I was making for Karen, my mother-in-law's friend. You can read about them at the end of this post. There's a picture there of one of them. The other one looks the same. Ha, ha.
I finally put the finishing touches (i.e. buttons) on this cell phone bag...another felting project. I'm waiting for some books of felted purse patterns to arrive at the library. I know I could probably play around with some existing patterns and figure out what I want, but I'm not much for improvising. Give me a pattern and I'll follow it! I'd like to make one for Claire's Girl Scout leader and I told my sister I'd make her one, too.
So, now I'm at that happy place where I'm anticipating the next great knitting project! Elliot and I went to Knit One in Squirrel Hill on Wednesday. It was pouring down rain, but we braved the weather and found the yarn store I've been wanting to check out for months. The Yarn Harlot was there last year and I know she's made other visits, too. Elliot was a very good companion in the yarn store and wanted to touch everything. Well, so did I. He was particularly fascinated with the ball roller and helped me roll my new purchase...Jitterbug Merino by Colinette in Mardi Gras. It will make some really wild socks! Watch Elliot's awesome winding ability!
The end is my favorite part!

The DJ on the radio yesterday played Katrina and the Waves "Walking on Sunshine" and said he was going to play it all day (which he didn't).
So, click on the video and turn up your speakers!!

Well, this past Friday, Christian went to Kennywood for his employee orientation!! He will be working on the rides in Kiddieland. Usually the younger kids (under 18) get to work the games or concessions so he was really happy to get to work with rides, even if they are mini rides for kids. It's a dream come true!
We had another service following breakfast, then we went home and enjoyed a nice day with family. Here we are before we all ran off to put on our comfy blue jeans. Usually we wear jeans to church anyhow (well, not Keith) but decided to wear something a little nicer for the holiday. God is good!

Here's a review of the evening in pictures.
These are the ladies from my knitting group that went with me...
Jaretta did say she would sue me if I put her picture on the Internet, but I'm really hoping she was just kidding.
Here is the spot where Stephanie would eventually dazzle us with her wit and charm...
I love this shot of part of the crowd. Take a good look at the sign I circled. (click on it) HA!!
Jack was there...
...and then SHE came in (!!!!!) and after being introduced...
...took a picture of all of us with the SOCK!!...
...and then I got to MEET HER!!...
...and now we're best friends.
For Stephanie's version of the evening go here. You can sort of see me in my blurry best in the third picture. I'm standing in the back, directly above the middle of the sock. I have on an olive tank top. You see me??
I have to also mention that The Yarn Harlot LOVES Pittsburgh (as she should)!
