Howdy Doody happy knitters

Yessiree Bob, I'm amped today. Even Mom noticed when I phone chatted with her this morning. Could it be a feeling of accomplishment? (cleaned the house yesterday and it didn't take but 2 hours!!) Could it be DD and I had a great weekend watching a couple dorky movies and going to a hockey game (finally the Kings won) with her BF? (my BF has been out of town since Thursday). Could it be my BF is coming home today? (Yippee, oh yeah!) Ah, it's all of the above. Let's not forget it's a short work week; Thanksgiving is at my house this year. Mom, Dad, DD, BF and me. We're gonna break the DD in at Texas Hold'em....I figure this way when she's playing strip poker she'll keep all her clothes on, LOLOL. Gonna be interesting, especially since Mom stated that last Christmas was the worst Christmas ever (it was at my house) Dear Readers, yes there's already a couple bottles of wine chilling in the fridge. Here's hoping Mom will indulge!!!

Anyhoo, on the knitting front, I'm well on to making BF's mom a pair of Fast Florida Footies. Her kids moved her to Reno (which is why BF was out of town.) and she's very excited that I'd make her a pair of socks. Oh pahleeze. Socks=my fav things to knit. I got enough to make 2 pairs. One fairly subdued, and the other bright, bright, bright. Actually got them from Angelikas Yarn Store. My first order from her and WOW, talk about fast shipping. I ordered them Tuesday and had them by Thursday. Add that to your list of on-line yarn stores. So now the Crusoe's and the SWC are back on hold. It's so nice to have many projects lined up! One amazing realization I had---whenever I knit with Cascade Fixation I use my 3.0mm Addis. Well after using the Knit Picks Options circular needles (remember I do 2 on 2) I feel like I have to wrestle my Addis into submission. What to do? Do I remain faithful to my Addis and struggle, or do I buy more Options????? Leaning toward the Options??? Yepper! When this rambling post is finished, popping on over to order the needles. So if anyone's interested in a trade or something, I'll have two 3.0mm Addi turbos available. Let me apologize once again for the lack of photos. Can't seem to remember to take any!!! Okay, back to work. Should anything else pop into my head, I'll be back!!!
