Harry came Knockin'

So here are the Sockapalooza socks I have procrastinated on for the past 3 months.... Only took me 6 days to do them. Yipee, one responsiblity down, about a billion to go....

Griffindor socks for Mom. She requested socks for her Aug 5th birthday. eeeeek!I did this while watching talladega nights tonight...

I am well aware I have been a terrible friend and blogger lately...My bloglines should have a hammer attatched with its alret system for losers like me.....
Anybody else feeling a little swammped this summer break?
I am really looking forward to Chris and my "date night" this weekend, I haven't been away from the kids in forever and my brain is mush... When Chris gets home from work I corner him for adult conversation! We all remember that commercial where the wife talks baby to the husband right?

Oh my husband just got intouch with a long lost friend and he is traveling the country and documenting his travels on his blog. go check it out

I am reading my bloglines right now, then I have to dye like crazy..... have a great week everyone :)

Three Sheets

Ahhhhh! I love this show. Where else but on the MOJO HD channel do you find a guy that travels around the world versing his viewers in diffirent cultures and BOOS!!
Hands down you have got to love it, and you actually watch him get wasted (in some of the episodes).... I think the most entertaining part for me is that he hangs out with all the locals.... Sadly, if you don't have HD cable, you can't start watching this Critically Catherine acclaimed show.....
Another new vice? Man Vs. Wild! I never plan on getting stuck in a situation where I am forced to drink my own urine to survive. But if I do atleast I know someone else has done it before me.....and I watched him do it! EWWWWWWW
New Season of Psych is out on USA and I love that show... Looking forward to many more hilarious episodes :)

What have I been up too besides watching TV?
Mystery Stole 3 Clue # 1 Finished!

STR Marbles Socks Finished!

Sockapalooza 4 Pal Socks, Started!(yarn is "handspun sock" from Pigeon Roof Designs)

RavelryI have 7 people infront of me in line! Grrrr. I had hoped to be on the invite today, but looks like I have to wait until tomm. for the coveted invitation ;) See you guys there!

Brandon allergies have gotten so bad that he has to have treatments daily....He is a real trooper about the whole thing :)

have a great week!

Socks, Stole & A Nazi

SOCK TIME:Did I get you attention? Yeah I did huh? Well Lets start out with the AMAZING Sock Blockers that I received from Becky at Leggy Creations. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect work of art. I LOVE these things and I plan on using them! Aren't they great?

I also got some yummy yarn in the mail from the UK, Posh Yarn. I had this Colorway, Inferno, in my shopping cart and by the time I got to check out it was gone! So Dee looked for another skein for me, Lucky she had one and she sent it along! Thanks DEE, its BEAUTIFUL! Another pair of socks to work for my blockers :)

As you can see on the right hand side I am signed up for Mystery Sole 3.... Well I had my yarn picked out from my stash, it was from the lace swap I did last year.... I got to the 49th row and realized I hated how thin it looked and It began to STRIPE!!!! Oh NO!
I went to talk with a friend after class at Yarntopia and told her what I was working with.... Come to find out it may have been cobweb! I came home and checked the label....YUPP, a 50gm skein is 1200 yds... WOW! Its cobweb.... I'm very proud I made no mistakes! But into the frog pond it goes.... So I got some Malabrigo Baby Merino Lace, and I have to start all over again:( I hope I have good luck with it like I had with the cobweb :) Here is a picture at Row 33 before it started to stripe.....

Did you skip to this part?
My husband is trying to watch what he eats so he frequents the local Subway near his office and he noticed the "efficiency" of a particular employee. Chris calls him the "Subway Nazi" (you know, similar to the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld?)
This guy stands at the vegetable part of the serving line, and if you're not quick enough or you can't decide what you want he passes your sandwich along without putting vegetables on! Is that hilarious or what!
Apparently this guy is so efficent that if the line gets backed up at the cash registar he starts taking peoples vegetable orders BEFORE they pick thier bread!
I've got to go see this guy in action!

Thats all for now, have a good week! and I hope to be reading up on blogs this week ;)

We have a Winner!

And her name is Brynne! Here is the link to the random generator.... I used a lottery random pick and took the first number in sequence b/w 1 and 18.... as you can see it was 5...and brynne left the fifth comment... Congrats Brynne! Your prize is a surprise and I'll leave at Yarntopia for you to pick up next week :)

As you can see I have decided to get on the ball with my Etsy shop and put a few things up for sale....Finally! I spent the entire weekend dyeing 87 skeins of yarn! I've never been so tired in my life (I can only dye b/w the hours of 10pm and 3am) So I didn't sleep much.

I am basically still an Etsy virgin when it comes to selling, I can't figure out how to get my stuff to list correctly....You really have to search to find my stuff.
While I was searching for my own yarns I found a few notable yarns I'd like to aquire from other Indie Dyers... I am SUCH a handpainted YARN HO! I'm already hooked on Posh, not to mention Sunshine yarns as well! Did you see Dani has a Harry Potter Sock Club? $100 and there are only 5 spaces left! Run Forest , Run! *smiles*

My answers to the Contest Questions:
1- Chips and Salsa, Knitting, Ice Tea
2- George Clooney, Julia Roberts (a mom and a knitter), Don Cheadle
3- STR, Jitterbug, Koigu (indie yarns are my fav too!)
