The chive is ready to flower and I've already harvested some fresh greek oregano.
On the yarn front, the never ending hubby sweater and the diamond trellis socks still languish in hibernation. I've been working on my MIL's lovely sweater vest and it's coming along beautifully! I've also started a simple pair of socks for hubby - his consolation prize for the unfinished sweater. I've also been working on some spa cloths - my goal is still the same - to have 12 done for the charity I'm making them for. And, this is BIG HUGE and MOMENTOUS: hubby bought me some lovely Tahki Cotton Classic DK yarns from yarnmarket.com, 14 different lovely luscious colors, to make the Hexie afghan highlighted in Lucy's blog, Attic24. Wasn't that absolutely wonderful of him??? Especially since he really doesn't get why I'm so obsessed with knitting and crochet. Massive kudos to my man!
The wild man is as wild as ever...his favorite word is "NO" mixed up with "That's MINE". He's talking ALL the time now and growing like a super weed. He still naps, mostly, which does give me a mini break in the pm. He's loving the warmer weather and wants to play outside all the time. Which is fine with me! I'm a TV addict and if not convinced otherwise, I'd stay inside all day! So he gives me the perfect excuse to get my fat butt outside and enjoying the fresh air. He amazes me every day - he also provokes me into tearing out my hair everyday but hey! We take the bad with the good and try not to go crazy! He's my beautiful strong-willed boy!
I've been reading up a storm, too, which is definitely a cramp in my knitting schedule. I wish I could knit and read at the same time! The only way that is possible is listening to my iPod and praying I don't drop a stitch or knit outside the pattern! Anyway, check out my book listing below and be amazed at how many I've read so far this year! My goal is 75 books. I read over 50 last year and I think 75 will be a cinch to surpass.
Time to upload some pics so y'all can see what we've been up to!
Ok, pics are done...my lovely SIL is here...food is being grilled, which means it's time for me to sign off.
Have a lovely safe holiday weekend! Happy knitting!
