Here are Paul, his Albany brother Mike and his mom after the confirmation:
Lots of knitting time in the car so....
In Knitting News:
I finished my Skew socks! And they don't fit!
They are too tight and it is very difficult to get them over my heel. I'm kicking myself for not going with my gut when I decided to use the recommended needle size (size 1) and not size 2 which I usually use for socks even when the pattern calls for size one. Since I was knitting these with teaching a class in mind, I wanted to make them exactly as the pattern said. Oh, and did I mention I ran out of yarn? My ball of yarn wasn't as long as I thought so when I got to the cuffs....
here , if you didn't click up there, to see what i mean).
I'm trying to let all of this go.... since there really is nothing I can do about it now (because I am NOT, I repeat NOT, making them again). But I've also got a little hope that when I lose a few of my I've-been-married-for-five-years pounds, maybe they will actually fit (Really. When I'm thinner, my shoe size changes. Honest.). If not, I will give them to someone who will promise to cherish them and really, really, really, really appreciate all the work that went into them.
In the car I also got a lot done on one of my stealth projects. Just so you know what you can't know about.

In Book News:
Not too much time to read lately - but when I can, I'm reading Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, Book 3). I'm loving it, but it's not calling to me to stay up late to read it like the others did.
Why haven't I been reading? Because we've been addicted to the aforementioned-in-another-post Roku (Roku 2 XD Streaming Player 1080p ), watching Swamp Loggers (Crisis at the Mill - that's an Amazon link to one of the episodes) and any other show we can find. LOVE. IT. So far, we are not missing getting movies on DVD. Although I must say I was anxiously awaiting The Help which was in "very long wait" status for some time and it's too new to stream. Maybe we'll rent it from Amazon. Did you know you can do that with a Roku? It bears repeating.... LOVE. IT. You should get one.
Did I mention that Paul and I have been married for five years tomorrow? Seems like yesterday. More on that next time...
