Busy, Busy Week!
First off, I treated myself to a GPS device. Tom-Tom is my new friend-friend. I love-love this thing-thing (ok, I'll stop-stop).
Being that I'm often driving without a navigator, I keep missing my exists and turns because I can't read my directions and the street signs fast enough, causing me to have to make an endless amount of u-turns to get back on track. I knew I was going to be driving quite a lot this weekend to get to a friends wedding up north so I splurged on this bad boy to keep me company and on the right path. I have to say, one of my best investments to date! Granted, I'm a bit of an electronics whore so any new gadget is going to push my buttons so to speak. (I'm sick, bad puns come out when I'm battling a fever.)
And here's the pretty bride and her new hubby. Big, fat congratulations go out to Amy and Matty once again!
Everything was amazing -the bride was beautiful, the weather perfect, food delicious, dancing plentiful and the company divine. Aside from that being the day I first got this terrible chest cold, you really couldn't have asked for a better day.
In the meantime, I began two knitted items. I'm calling these my fall socks (the colors and it being September ya know?). I figured I gotta make a dent in my 2006 Stitches stash since the next one is coming up in just a few short weeks and I need to have a reason to need more yarn.
Plus, I'm working on a birthday present for my BFF/blog-stalker JJ who, although knows what she's getting, isn't going to see them until her birthday. They're on Ravelry if you're really curious - Ha, ha non-knitter you can't see 'em :-)
Last but not least, I got a great note from my former downstream ISE4 pal Kate who was kind enough to send me pictures of her new beautiful baby Matilda enjoying the socks I made for her from mom's left-over scarf yarn. Here's Mum & Tilly getting "dunked"! (Well, Tilly is, Mum needs no more dunkin' I'm sure)
Look, "Baby Birks" in use! How cute are those tootsies?!?
