Our First Full Week

So, we are starting to get into the Alabama groove. I guess. The kids have gotten into school, my husband has a desk, so the days here consist of me, Baby, and the dogs just kind of sitting around. It is really kind of lonely. I spend alot of time trying to get stains out of the floor (carpet). This is a nice apartment, just too small for us. And carpet is always a bad idea. I finished my fuzzy pink scarf, the one from Scarf Style. can't remember the name. I have no way to download my pictures to my laptop. It kind of sucks. btw: Misty Garden is the the name of the pattern
But, on a happier note: I finally got into Ravelry. What fun! There are some great groups out there. My favorite this week is Craft Li. They are reading Tristan and Isolde and I never knew med evil Lit could be so suspenseful. I miss being a Lit major. I told my husband that I think when I finish this degree, I was going to go back and get a Masters in Lit.
We took the kids to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. They had a great time running and jumping. Then, we got to the water gardens. I looked away for one second, heard a splash and there was the baby lying on the bottom of the pond. I snatched her out of there! What goes threw a baby's head? Why jump into a deep dark pond full of giant goldfish that may eat you?
Who knows!
On a yarny note, I have yet to make it to one of the knit nights here, but I really want to. I would be content just going to the yarn store a this point. Maybe soon, I hope. I got my Halloween Sock Club kit from Wool Girl!!! It is so cute, I wish I could post pictures of it somewhere, still waiting on the chameleon Color works kit, though. I have kind of given up on that one, I just hope the PO forwards it. I am thinking of trying a sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. I am really getting into the older vintage patterns. I have been reading "Victorian Lace Today' and feel so inspired, I just wish I had the guts to try one.
School is going craptacular, that's all I am going to say about that!

Sometimes I wish I could be as carefree and fearless as children. Actually, jumping in a pond sounds like fun...despite the giant goldfish. :D

I'm glad you finally got on Ravelry. I found you there and added you to my friends list. If I had a home computer, I think I'd spend much more time on there, but that's probably not a good thing. ;)

Hi, I found your blog through Ravelry. Welcome to Alabama!

There are two FANTASTIC yarn shops, one in Huntsville proper and one about 15 minutes away in Laceys Springs. Are you familiar with these shops?
