I finished the socks yesterday morning since it was rainy and wet! Got them washed, blocked, dried and took them to the post office this morning and mailed them with the automated system so they will go out first thing in the morning! WOO HOO! No more deadlines until I move. It was nice to get that off of my shoulders.

OK, so I've been really wanting to buy the new M/D book, but have been strapped for cash because the move is going to cost a gazillion dollars. I took my audio book back to the library last night and looking what the librarian pulled out of the office for me. It had just come in and I was the first person to check it out! What joy! I completely agree with what the YH said about it. It's just fantastic and I totally recommend it. So while I was looking at it I decided that I needed a nice easy garter stitch project to work on until the move. So I decided that Em needs a Moderne Log Cabin Blanket (page 78). Instead of the tans and plums I'm going to do hers in fuschia, blue, purple and green. It's a total secret and I hope to suprise her sometime when we move to the new house for her new room. It's on size 6 needles and it's going to end up being 60" x 50" which will be a major PITA but I'm game. So I just HAD to pull some yarn out of my stash to start it. I have also decided that I'm only going to work on that and the socks that I need to finish for my pal until we move...oh and maybe a dishcloth... or two...or ten. LOL.

This is all that remains of my stash....well all that's out anyway. I packed up 6 huge boxes of yarn today and although I knew it was necessary I couldn't help but feel that it was so FINAL. I won't be seeing the lovelys until we are in Oklahoma in June. HMPH!

Well the pink is my attempt at Knitty's Pedicure Socks . I wasn't crazy about the color or the striping so I'm doing my own thing. I still have to make a second sock of my last project to make, but I'm finding that I have "Knitters ADD" and don't want to spend too much time on one project these days. I did however make Em a poncho which is my 1st crochet FO. I know, I know, I've crossed over the "other side" although it was a switch because I was teaching my grandmother to knit on dpns! WOO HOO!

It seems as though we just went to Oklahoma, however that was in February, yet only 6 weeks ago. We are leaving today after the kidlets are done with school. Probably will put us there around midnight or a little later. We are going to a place called Bartlesville that would be on the right forehead of our little friend above (thanks to Nataliedee). There will be lots of job interviews and hopefully lots of job offers (trying not to get my hopes up). There will probably be even more houses that we will look at and *cross your fingers* one we will decide to choose as our own. I'll be going back to Stillwater to my alma mater so hopefully there will be lots of pictures with my knitting while we are there. I will tell you that before I became a Knitter I HATED the car trips, but now I see them as a great time to knit....unless I have to drive which I'm hoping I don't! Knit on!

OK, here it is in all it's kind of glory. I haven't blocked it yet, but that's coming. I'm not sure you can see, but those little white arrows are pointing to orbs that are on the picture around Nan. I'm a bit believer in orbs. This made me feel so good because I like to think that my great grandmother and other deceased relatives were around me at during the knitting of my very first afghan. I will tell you that I'm not really into trying to do another one any time soon. This one measured 66 x 66 unblocked. I'm really excited to see how much my grandmother loves it.
Sharon's Feather and Fan Socks.
For me they are knitting up rather slowly, but that's because I think I have TONS on my mind. I've made them for my big feet, but we will see. I'm not sure what yarn this is other than Bernat Sox. Maybe I"ll work on it some on my way to Oklahoma tomorrow.
