Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Cummings!!

Having fun here in Brandon, Manitoba! Yesterday my bestfriend Kerri got married, it was a really nice, private ceremony at their home. Ofcourse I took tonnes of pictures!
I miss everyone back in Ontario, especially my babies!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

I'm doing fine and having fun except for the headcold that has developed over the last couple of days. I would sure love to breath out my nose again. :-)

I'm blogging on a Mac right now and man it's confusing!!

The pictures below are of the wedding festivities. Don't they look beautiful...no wait, isn't Kerri a beautiful bride? I'm so proud of her!! Congratulations Kerri & Clark!

I will post more when I get back!

Socktobering Away

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner at my MIL Rhonda's yesterday and I also got a photo of my Jaywalker progress. I am very pleased with the stipping of the sock and the colours go great together, I can't wait to wear them. They really shouldn't take too long to finish either.
Blogger will not let me upload pictures today, so if you would like to see the sock hit the link! :-)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (in Canada) weekend. Saturday Ron, Paisley and I made Hallowe'en decorations, I will post some pictures of that fun as soon and I figure out why my memory card reader is no longer working. The photo of the sock was sent to me by Rhonda so I could at least show my sock off.

Only 4 more days then I'm off to Manitoba for a week for my bestfriend Kerri's wedding, I've got music in my mp3 player loaded up and my knitting all ready to go. I'm a little nervous because this is my first flight and mostly nervous because I've never left Paisley for that long before. Rest assured, she is in good hands. Rhonda will be taking her for a week, so stay tuned to her blog next week (that is if she has time to post) and I'm sure you may see some of they're adventures. Gramma's got plans!!!

Miserable Day!

We were woke up at 6:30 this morning to alot of loud banging going on outside, the lightening and rain were pretty intense too. Since then, it's been raining all day and periodically thunderstorming. It's just a yucky day out there...a nice day to blog (or knit if you can).

Broadripple Socks Progress:

Since my last post, I continued to knit the sock even though I still wasn't happy with it. On the weekend I took it out to Rhonda's and now I have decided to scrap the sock that I'm working on, drop down a needle size to 2.75mm and try a different yarn. I still want to make these sock! I love the pattern, it's really quite easy and addictive. I got all the way down to the toe shaping on the current sock. I may finish it, I may not, I haven't decided yet. Rhonda even tried to change the pattern for sock yarn, but it just wasn't working out so she let me pick out of her stash some sock yarn that she bought and set me up with a pair of 2.5mm needles and I've decided to try the Jaywalkers. It is a very simple pattern and all is going well on smaller needles and sock yarn (these are the smallest needles and finest yarn I have ever used) and it's really not that bad to knit with. I'm happy the way the colours are striping too. :-)

I have also joined socktoberfest 2006, how perfect since I'm on a sock kick right now. Everyone's getting a pair of either broadripple or jaywalkers for Christmas this year from me!

Blogger is acting weird and I can't add links or anything, I'm not even sure if it will post this for me either, but we'll see. My memory card reader is still acting up and I can't post pictures, this is killing me because I'd love to post pictures of my socks. Ahhhh

Well, that is it for now, hope everyone's keeping busy out there if you've got rain today!
