We went to Virginia for Easter to visit Jess and Jay (givers of THE YARN). While there, we saw this......
What is truly funny is the name of the vehicle. We've been calling my husband's car the "Hoopty" for a few years now. Little did we know, there was a real Hoopty (actually the VA Tech Hokie Hoopty) rolling around in Virginia. A trip there is not complete without a Hoopty sighting.
I have also completed 11 hats so far, probably that many more to go.
I had declared 2008 the year of ME, but it is quickly becoming apparent that it in fact is not and will not be the year of me. I have 2 special birthdays coming up this year. Both my Mom and my Aunt Sharon will be turning 60 this year. I purchased the Vintage Sock kit for my Aunt's gift, and have a special pattern picked out for my Mom as well. In addition to those two, I am knitting Mr. Woofy, plus a pair of socks for Jessie's birthday, and Stacey just sent me a pattern for her make-up gift from last year. Fortunately, we hit a yarn store while in VA, and Jess picked out her yarn. Here's my total VA haul....The yarn in the center is for Jessie's socks, and the other two are for me! That's it for now. Gearing up for a very knitty day tomorrow - meeting with my Salem County friends during the day, then meeting up with Stacey to knit tomorrow night - yay! Pat and I will be assisting alpaca shearing on Saturday. The owners have sold the farm due to health reasons so this will be our last year doing this. They are really neat animals, though alot of work. Shearing alpacas is a more time intensive production than sheep, so it will be a long day - we probably won't be able to move on Sunday, wish us luck (will try to take pics with my crappy camera, which appears to be getting even crappier). Knit on people!
