I am due for a Cavemas.  Soon, me hopes.

Just me, my kitties, my knitting and some t.v.

This will be happening in September.  I cannot wait.

I really have been knitting

I just have nothing to show for it.

I currently have on the needles the following items:

1. Ginger, a tank top I started for the Ravellenic Games.  I have the front and half the back complete
2. Franks Sweater.  Ya, still working on that.
3. Squish for the Fisherman.  I anticipate a lot of knitting on that in September when the weather starts to cool down more. I knit on this at knitting on Saturdays.
4. Gj's Christmas Scarf.  He requested one almost 2 years ago and I just found a good yarn to knit it up in.  100% baby alpaca as Mr. G is allergic to wool.  I actually got the yarn during the yarn crawl in March, I am about 50% done with this.  It's what I knit on when I don't have have the attention span for a pattern and what I usually knit on at the Saturday knitting group.

In other news, I watched my little monkey butt a few days last week. The little stinker tried to eat my big toe.  Three times.  He's a cheeky little monkey that kid. 

At work sock knitting:

I am at the heel decrease on another pair of tall socks with the after thought leg. Once I get this pointy heel situation under control, this will be my favorite way to knit a tall sock. 

I still love my heel gussets don't get me wrong, but I like those on top down socks.  It's less confusing for me that way. 

One day, I will put up pictures of knitted things, I promise.

Gone Fishing

Not even joking, I actually went fishing. 

The fisherman invited me to his house to fish, much to my surprise and his, I said yes. 

The day started, we hung out on the hammock, went grocery shopping, I made him much anticipated meatballs and sauce, which he devoured the following week, which pleased my inner nonna.  He got burger supplies and made me his famous burgers for dinner.  You cannot beat a good burger and beer in the summer.  The best part, was dessert, he made key lime pie, from scratch, because it's my favorite. OMG! SO GOOD.  I wish I had taken him up on his offer to take some home.  I will not make that mistake again. 

Back to the fishing.  We got the boat loaded on the truch, we drove to the lake and I fly-fished for the very first time and I only hit myself in the arm with the fly once and him in his foot once.  YAY!

No knitting, but a wonderful day with a wonderful fisherman.
