So we are just going into the last week of my sock class and it went quite well I think. I have been on a major sock knitting binge lately socks are on my mind all the time lol and when I am knitting them I almost always have the song SHOTS stuck in my head but instead of the word shots I insert the word socks πŸ™‚ I know it is odd but well you know that is kinda me in a nutshell lol I am working on pair #5 in the last 3 weeks πŸ™‚ I will take some pictures and add them later as I have just remembered that my daughter stole borrowed the batteries from my camera and didn’t return them πŸ™‚

We have been having great weather the last few days and I had big plans to get out the lawn chairs and weed the back garden this weekend but thankfully itΒ rained today lol andΒ that means I got to stay in my jammies and knit πŸ™‚ YAY it is whatΒ I wanted to do anyways ha ha ha.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends

Happy Knitting Β πŸ˜‰

Perfect Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — fiberrox @ 12:23 pm

This weekend I had a perfect day it was a simple day really but one I think I will think about for a long time, the sun was shining and my daughter and I decided to go for a drive…a 3 hour long drive lol we got packed up our doggy and grabbed some tea and got in the car. We drove to a neighboring town we sang to loud music and just enjoyed the ride. We went for sushi once we arrived and had the most amazing roll it was called the philly roll it was cream cheese, smoked salmon and green onion mmmm it was so good πŸ™‚ after our lunch we wandered down main street made a quick detour into one of the yarn shops for some sock yarn and then we spotted a tatoo/piercing shop so we decided to go in and price out nose piercings my daughter was very excited as I had told her she could get it done in the summer πŸ™‚ So after a quick chat with the piercing lady she decided to do it….it looks great, I have mine done for several years and am glad she wanted to do hers too.Β  After that we headed for home and enjoyed each others company and of course there was more singing lol. I enjoyed this simple day so much as my baby is getting older and I treasure all the alone time I get with her πŸ™‚

Of course once we were home I started a new pair of socks lol my perfect day would not be complete without some knitting πŸ™‚

What would your perfect day look like?

This is my beautiful girl πŸ™‚

Ahhhhhhh I am so happy to have 4 days off work….yipeeee πŸ™‚ so farΒ I am enjoying my time off I started off with my sock knitting class which was lots of fun and then my daughter was at a friends overnight so I stayed up very late drinking tea and knitting my new very exciting project….my first ever fair isle cardigan and I am loving it πŸ™‚ then after my alarm clock went off at 5am ( I am very bright and forgot to turn it off ) I went back to my tea drinking and knitting, I got out of my jammies and put my knitting down and walked down the street to have a quick visit with a friend and then did a bit off easter shopping and now am back in my jammies lol getting ready to start knitting again………yahoooo this is how my weekend is going to go πŸ™‚

How are you all spending your long weekend?

Happy Easter and Happy Knitting to you all
