Today I got to wear a new pair of shoes. I love them so much. (I even have them in silver!)
Today we had a brunch for my out of town cousins who are visiting from California. (I am actually knitting in the photo above). From left to right, myself, Matt, Amy (my sister) and Alyssa. Matt & Aly are my two cousins closest to my age. The other two are a lot younger than me. Aly's a year older than me and Matt's a few years younger. It was really good to see them. We get to see each other every couple of years.
Sean was hard at work at a Rubix cube while we were at the brunch today. In the background you can see Sean's little cousin Jakob fast asleep!
The blackberries are starting to slowly rippen in our backyard. I can't wait to have a ton to eat. They look like they are going to be delicious. Last year, the plant was shaded and didn't produce much, but this year, it's been re-located and is looking healthy!
The purple flower plant is also HEALTHY like you wouldn't believe. They're growing really strong and wild. I wonder what they're called...?
Tonight, since I have Knitting A.D.D. I cast on a tank top from Debbie Bliss' The Baby Knits Book for Sean. It seems like a very fast knit. I know, I know, I already have a sweater cast on for him as well, and I'm working on a million other projects, but I just had to cast-on. Plus, I wanted to see how the Cotton-Ease (Lion Brand) knits up. I got it while on my Yarn Harlot/Webs trip in May at Michaels Craft Shop. This tank, I'm making in 12-24 month size, since he's already wearing 6-12 month size. I think this tank top will look splendid over a collared button down shirt.
Tonight Jamie and I watched the movie Breach with Ryan Phillippe, Laura Linney, Dennis Haysbert (President David Palmer from 24), amongst some other familiar faces. The movie was actually pretty good. We had tried watching Shooter with Mark Whalberg, but 2 minutes into the movie, I decided it wasn't for me, and that Jamie, who'd recommended we watch that movie, can watch it on his own when I'm not around.
I'm *almost* done updating my Ravelry account. (Boy is it addictive) I had been signed up for a while and only had my profile on there. I've added some of the books that I won in my library (there are a TON that are NOT on there...? Like the Harlot's books... I guess it's for Patterned books only?) and I've added what picsk I could find for my FO's and whatever WIP's I have going on right now. I think I've got them all up on there.... I think? If I'm missing some, I'll eevntually realize it, and add them. But for now, I'm done updating. It's a huge time investment! I pretty much have to update it when Sean's sleeping or napping, and at which point, I want to be knitting!
