Just a short hello today. I started two new projects this weekend already. Another poncho, this one for my niece's 8th birthday. I know I'm sick of knitting ponchos too, but when they ask for one and specify a color, I can't say no. I've also started my first pair of socks. I'm making them for my dad for Christmas because he asked for them. I figured I'd have to start early because as you know, I don't do socks. Both projects are on my to-do list so I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself.
Two happy things today: my son's team finally won a baseball game. Poor kid, he went from a team with a 42-4 record to a team who won their second game today. It's not all about winning and I'm glad he's learning how to deal with losing, but these poor kids have had a rough season. So everyone was pretty excited. I almost felt guilty about being so happy for them as the team they beat was the New Ulm traveling 13 year old team. After having such a great day in New Ulm last week, I felt a little bad. Hope Nutty Cindy's kid wasn't on the team or anything!
Second happy thing, SP8 has given me a new pal to spoil. Someone who actually keeps her blog updated so I'll know if she likes the things I send her. Not to mention, it is apparent from her blog that she is actually literate, which I wasn't sure about with the first pal I was spoiling. Can't say more as I don't want to blow my cover (just in case she actually reads this).
Note to Renee the Enabler: I found the 99 cents per skein Kool Wool. It was on sale 20% off. I bought 16 skeins. Can we not count yarn that costs so little? I mean for the yarn diet and all. In comparison it's like eating three M&Ms on a regular diet. Right?
