That is the number that we need to know on August 31. That number, less the number we know on 8/31 is the amount I get to spend on yarn on 9/1. Thats right, its a yarn diet - $1 for each pound + $5 for each (comfortable)pant size. Current is 14.
Chelsea - I did get my package! Thank you so much! We've not done the prints yet, but will do them on Saturday if its sunny enough, or on Sunday at Granny's Birthday Party - I think she's 78 this year.
In our Easter Clothes! This is only the 2nd family portrait that we've had made since that little one came into the family. The bad thing about this fact is that the first Family Portrait with all 4 of us was done just this past Christmas! Yikes!
On the knitting front - I've completed Branching Out (see it at our Branching Out KAL!) I've started another in the same colorway for either my SIL or my MIL - not sure yet!
When the new SPRING KNITTY is realeased! I love Branching Out and I'm going to try to make one in time for Mother's Day for my mom. I know that I can't get it done in time for her Birthday - because that is MONDAY!!! Yikes!!!
I'm thinking of hosting a KAL for this - Or looking for one if its created. Its a one-ball-wonder and thats what me likes for Sisters-in-law gifts! Although, I do have FIVE THOUSAND YARDS of LACE WEIGHT MERINO! So I don't even have to buy anything. Except maybe Koolaid to make them different colors!
Yesterday, at about 4:30 CDT (I hate the D), the storms rolled in. You know its spring in Oklahoma when the hail stones are compared to golf balls and little tents pop up on every available parking lot offering "Paintless Dent Repair."
It took us an extra 10 minutes to get home, and once we got there - it hadn't even RAINED. I live DUE EAST of my office, the Storm was moving DUE EAST, but started moving north before hitting my house! Yeah!
Kristel - I'm working on the socks! I spent most of last night trying to watch NCIS between weather breaks, and knit away. I'm doing the gusset decreases. It seems like I'm taking forever (to me) but then I remember that I am doing two at once! So when I do finish - I will be finished!
I've somehow missed taking pictures of the following yarns:
2 skeins of KnitPicks sock garden - holly berry 2 skeins of KnitPicks striped sock - Sweettarts 2 skeins of kitchen cotton 2 skeins of craft cotton Un-reclaimed WIPs that are to be frogged, in Cotton-Ease 1 skein of Safety Orange Red Heart 4 skeins of Wool of the Andes 1 Skein of Cascade 220 Various oddballs of leftovers
