Movin' right along!

I am turning out the knits like crazy lately...I have had insomnia for the past week so I get a lot done while everyone else sleeps. I have only slept about 4 to 5 hours each night for the past week except for Thursday I actually got 8 hours! On Friday I couldn't keep my eyes open! I was sooo sleepy all day long.. Thats irony for ya ;)

Chris And I had our 6th Wedding Anniversary yesterday. It was a lot of fun to hang out without the kiddos. They were split up b/w grandparents for sleep overs so we could have one of our own ;) He brought me to his favorite resturant (I love the food there too) Cafe Red Onion, the we saw the Da Vinci Code. Good movie, both of us have never read the book... I was an avid reader before I took up knitting and figured out what was going to happen at the end pretty early on..... Good mystery movie though!
Chris surprised me with a cute little gift, an ipod shuffle! I was so excited to get one of my very own, now I don't have to borrow his! It makes an apperence in the pictures below.

Fathers Day was great and very low key, thank goodness! I gave Chris his Felt Clogs and he loved them. I had to wash them about 4 times to get the right fit, and still they were a little big. Needless to say I felted them again, and BINGO! Have a look:

They were really fun to make and a very quick knit! I have the suede soles to sew on still, I will do that this week for the final touch.

I am working on my BMFA Sock Club socks. These are really fun to knit and the lenin stitch on the cuff is dreamy! I like the picot edge at the end too

I have about 4 more inches until the button holes then I do my edging and BO... after that I pick up stitches from the side, I love that!

On the Web
Jenn sent me an email showing off these babies! You know I am gonna get some to try! I'll purchase mine from the Diva Knitting.

Happy anniversary! Glad you had such a nice time, and such a lovely Father's Day too. Great looking clogs, they'll be even better with suede soles.
