Post 667

I just noticed that my last post was 666 which kind of reflected my mood for parts of the day.

Valentine's day was not too bad at the Awesome Mom house, but I did end the day with so much snot on me that I looked like I had been run over by a herd of slugs. Evan and Harry are quite content to scribble on anything that I put in front of them, so we made valentines for Evan's physical therapist who had an appointment with us yesterday. She is a very nice woman who loves to ruin lunch with all sorts of treats, so I thought that the boys should show some sort of appreciation.

We had heart shaped pizza and soda for dinner. My husband brought home clearance Christmas chocolate for me (it is dark chocolate 70% cacao Mom so :P on you) and I got yarn in the mail. All in all it was not too bad of a day even if my throat is rather sore and the boys are oozing in snot. I even get to look forward to some yarn that I bought as a gift to me from my husband that should be arriving in the mail any day now.

This is Eggplant Explosion. The sock will be a plane jane sock called The 56 stitch, 56 Row sock. I wanted something simple to show off the coolness of the yarn. There will be more than 56 rows in the foot part since that is for people will size 8 shoes and I have a delightful size 9 foot.

This beaut is called Ballooney, she arrived in my mail box on Wedensday. I won it from this contest. I was so excited to get her that I put it in a ball right away thinking that I would be able to cast on right away. She is fingering weight and I do not have needles small enough to make socks with her. *sob* I can assure that she will not be languishing in my stash for long, Momma needs a bright pair of socks and these will blind you.

I love heart shaped pizza! That's pretty much a staple for valentines day in my book :)

Beautiful yarn, that should be fun to play with over the next few weeks! Happy belated V-day, and (of course) happy knitting!
