A little bit of this and that

I can take the heat, I can take the cold, but the winds...that is another story. The winds around here have been, well, how should I say, STRONG. It's pretty bad when you are at your kids baseball game and all of the parents have their sunglasses on at night and the kids are facing the wall in the dugout just so they don't get dirt in their eyes.

Though I admit, it was funny.

Speaking of baseball. Is there anyone in the Los Angeles area going to Stitch n Pitch? The one at Dodger Stadium is on May 22, 2007, which is a Tuesday. I really want to go, I really want to take the kiddos like I did last year, but that would be a late night for them and they have school the next day. So if anyone is interested in meeting up and going, drop me a line.

Look what I signed up for.

This is the first time that I have ever signed up for any type of swap thingy and I am really excited.

Speaking of socks, remember the purple socks that were from the same dye lot but not. In all fairness to the socks, I have to admit that the color not matching was one of the only things that irked me and that was pretty minute compared to what I love so much about them. They match up perfectly. Jean noticed as well too.

I give Cascade props with that. Each of the skeins were wound exactly the same. I did nothing except start knitting from the center of each of the skeins and I came out with two perfectly matched aligned socks.
Have a great weekend!

Yeah, these winds have been crazy. I saw an entire tree toppled over -- it just snapped right off down at the base. Thanks for the link. I'm glad you're warming up to the socks.
