Keeping Me in Stitches

nothing to show

I still haven't gotten my pictures off my camera, so I've got nothing to show ya.

However, there is other knitting news! First up, I finally finished off the baby kimono sweater from Mason Dixon Knitting. It's completely sewn up and right now I'm debating between buttons, snaps, or ribbons for a closure. I still have to knit the Miss Dashwood hat for the little girl this is going to. Knitting pretty pink girly things is fun!

Monkey sock #2 is two repeats and a toe from being done! I might get the foot done before I go to bed, but leave the toe so I have something to work on at SnB tonight. The CTH Life's a Beach colorway is coming out beautiful with this pattern. I think I'll have to do another pair of Jaywalkers once this is done.

BMFA sock club kit.....I've resigned myself to a year of disappointment and practicing patience. With the February kit, I didn't get it until almost March 10 because it was one of the last ones to go out. This month I'm trying to avoid spoilers like the plague because I don't want to see the color until I get mine in the mail. I have heard about the yarn content and name, but I haven't looked for pictures or color descriptions or pattern descriptions at all. I'm also avoiding the sock club blog until my package comes. I have seen that people east of the Mississippi have gotten their packages. So I was content to sit back and wait. Then about 10 minutes ago, I see that Violet has posted on the LnV messageboard about the yarn. I can only assume that she's gotten her package. And now I will go into a whine.....BUUUUTTT IIIIIII WWAAAAAAAANNNTT MMMMMMMMMYYYYY KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTT!!!!!! *whine*

Ahem....done now.

Monday I stayed awake after working my 3-night weekend to put in calls to 5 different landscaping places. All I wanted was someone to come out to my place and give me an estimate on how much it would be to till up and re-sod my dead backyard. I heard back from one place and the guy came out today to measure and take a look at the mudpit my backyard has become with all the rain. I didn't get a dollar amount, but he took measurements and said he'd get back to me. I may have to finally meet my neighbors to the east....just to ask them if it's okay for the landscaping guys to drive the sod machine on their property to get into my backyard. Because evidently the gates in my fence are too narrow and they'd have to take down a 6-foot section of fence to get the machine in there. Lovely. Hopefully I'll hear from a few more places this week or early next week.

    Good luck with the sock kit. It feels like they are moving faster this time, but maybe that is just because I have mine. But it did come a lot quicker than it did in February.
