What Does Your Candy Heart Say?

Happy Valentine’s Day

Although I do try to know that this holiday is the cheesiest of holidays, I cannot deny I like the attention.  I received a pretty bouqet of lillies, tulips and pink roses from the Man.  He decided not to go all cliche today with the red roses and went for something he knew I would like.  The flowers though didn’t get delivered until the end of school.  Apparently the folks over at Flower, Flower though I was a student and wouldn’t deliver the flowers.  It wasn’t until the Man called up and explained that, "No he was not a pedofile and yes his girlfriend was a teacher there."

My office is next door to the main office so I always hear the goings on day to day at the school.  And sure enough I heard the flower delivery guy try to pronounce my name.  ahhh that X gets ’em every time.

So as my personal birthday treat I bought the Shining Star pattern by Kate Gilbert and plan on making a few hats for the end of winter.  Who knows it might be a brisk spring!   I love the modifcations Grumperina made on it and I’m thinking of the Cascade 220 deluxe yarn for this project.  I even emailed the designer who was so kind and quick to email me back.  I cannot wait to cast on!  I’m almost done with the scarf I casted on for last Tuesday as well as the shawl for my mom which is Almost There.

I didn’t finish however the Jaywalker socks in time for Cara’s Grande Finale.  I love the pattern but I don’t LOVE the pattern.  I am Almost done with my second sock but it’s in a different color than the first so really it wouldn’t have been a traditional pair anyway.  I do plan on finishing both pairs soon and I completely agree that it was a fun pattern.  I cannot see myself just knitting a regular stockenette sock ever.  Too boring!

I love being inspired by what I knit.  I love finding finishing projects and thinking, "wow i really want to try that".  And for someone who goes through hobbies pretty quick I get excited that I’m still sticking with this knitting.

    Good to see you back! Flowers are delightful any day so it’s all good. I’m sorry you don’t LOVE the pattern, but you are almost to TWO pairs of socks, right? Have a great day!
