Wow! I won one of the book giveaways from Vicki Howell's blog! How cool is that?!?! I must say, very unexpected but greatly appreciated. Thanks so much! I'm looking forward to getting that in the mail.
As of last weekend, the color is YELLOW...as in, youngest son's earning of his yellow belt in karate. That's the 3rd belt for him (white belt, followed by orange belt) so we were pretty excited. Of course, I forgot to give DH the camera so we have no pictures of this...next color belt testing for sure.
The youngest does play in the high school Marching Band as well, Tuba. It seems like it's almost as big as he is.
Oldest Son plays Ultimate Frisbee (it really is a sport and a pretty cool one, actually) and sent me some photos from a tournament of him in action...Love it!
And now for the knitting - I think that I FINALLY figured out what I was doing wrong with this Twinkle Toes pattern. I love the CookieA patterns and think that her designs are pretty awesome but I'll tell you, the Yarn Over after a Purl stitch was really throwing me for a loop. I could not figure out why every time I did this one particular row in the pattern repeat I had an extra stitch - EVERY TIME. I think that I started this one sock about 12 times, but I have gotten really good at the Magic 8 Cast On and I really like the way the toe looks. I am a little bit further along now and will post new pictures soon. Hopefully I will be able to get a fair amount of knitting done this weekend (since I now know the answer to the issue I was having) and I will be ready to go once the next installment of the STR Sock Club comes in the mail.
