Happy Weekend!

Happy Birthday to Bex, I hope your day was filled with good things.

Mark and I drove up the mountains last night for a housewarming party, and we’re starting to think more seriously about moving west – it’s very likely that when we buy a house, it will be somewhere in the mountains, but in the meantime it may make sense to rent up there for a while.

We had a great time at the party (I met a woman who is going to raise alpacas!), I fell into a deep sleep on the very comfy couch while the party raged around me (getting old, I think I did very well to keep the eyelids up until after 1am), and we had a leisurely breakfast overlooking the valley while the birds kept us entertained.

Not going to the pub today – Mark hasn’t had much sleep, and it’s wet, and we’ve done more than enough driving for one weekend.

And thanks to Celia, I finally have the stitch pattern I need for the sock of my dreams. I’ve been swatching for nearly a year now, and I am on the verge of a breakthrough. Just need to refine a detail or two, and then I can proceed to an actual prototype. Happy!

  1. I feel the same way when “younger folks” invite Richie and me to go out partying. (SIGH)…

    Can’t wait to see that sock but can you go ahead and tell us the stitch pattern? 😉

    No comment on the fake fur issue. At least Nordstrom’s pulled that stuff out unlike OTHER stores… (Cough, SAKS, cough)
