A 1/2 sleeve and another ball down

A long over due knitting post and then some!

I can't believe how much the summer sucks up any urge to blog right out of you. In the winter months, I was keeping my blogs to one or two a week and now the nice weathers here and it's now every couple weeks with severe lack of knitting content.

The knitting's still a slow go as well, but at least I have one of the sleeves of my 4-ways sweater going and I'm about 1/2 way done it. I do have a goal set to have my sweater finished by now, so that will keep the needles working. I want to have it finished by the first week of October because on the 13th I'm flying out to Winnipeg for my best friend Kerri's wedding and I would love to have it to wear for cool October days. I'll be there for a week and I'm very excited because I haven't seen her in 3 years, slighty nervous though because I've never even set foot on a plane and I've also never left Paisley for that long before. No need to worry though because she's in good hands! My MIL Rhonda has volunteered to take her for the week because she just happened to have a week of vacation during the same week I will be gone for. Ron will still be here, but he has to work 3-11 that whole week so thanks again (and again) to Rhonda, she's the greatest! I think a pair of socks might even be in order as a treat for Kerri, so I should probably get on that. Little to no more progress on Lola for Paisley either, so I should probably finish that too. My UFO's are starting to pile up, I best be gettin' moving! :-)

Out of the Loop

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to post that I'm back in blog land now. Unfortunately I don't have any knitterly content to report on as of right now. I'm done the back of my 4 ways sweater now and pretty much done Lola for Paisley but I haven't been able to pick up needles in a while.
Last week Ron took Pasiely and I to my parent's house in Owen Sound, we stayed for a week. It's way to hectic to knit there since Lucas, my sister's son pretty much lives there with them. He's almost 2 years old. My mom and I had to keep the kids occupied! My Dad bought them a cute little pool (well it's big for them), with a waterslide that they enjoyed the entire week. Paisley had a blast and it was nice to get out of the city.

Alot of photos were taken, it was good times had by all but now I'm out of the loop and I have to catch up on everyone's blogs. :-)

P.S. I have tried to to upload pictures, but blogger is being dumb again so I will have to add some later. Arg!
