One Sock, Two Sock, Red Sock, Blue Sock

So this past week has been a busy one, and one full of finished and started projects! First off, I stayed up late one night last week and FINALLY got done with the first sock for Erm's pair! Took me long enough! And the good news is that it fits, and he loves it. He is excited for his second one, which he is patiently waiting for. See the sock below!

So that was very exciting for the end of the week. We had a jam packed weekend, as always. It started Friday night with some crazy commotion next door, which I don't really want to get into. I'll just say it kept us up very very late and we were tired on Saturday! But, we got up, rallied, cleaned the house and got some other stuff done and prepared for Kelly, Scott, Shaine and Todd, friends and bridesmaids, to come over. Erm made ribs (again!) and they were DELICIOUS (again!). I can't get enough of them. Also very exciting was that Kelly brought Brady! I'm sorry to all you other babies out there, but Brady is probably the cutest baby out there. He is so interactive, mimicking everyone's faces and mannerisms, especially his Dadda!! Check out Kelly's Blog for more on Brady. Here's pics of me and Brady in the kitchen... it was a fun night!

So a little while ago I got the bright idea to make Red Sox socks for my friend Dana. I bought the yarn awhile ago but just never got around to it. Of course, her birthday is in a couple of weeks, so guess what I started this weekend? I swear, I am a masochist. However, the weirdest thing has happened... you know how Erm's blue socks have taken me 2 months to make just one? I only have a couple of inches to go on the leg of the first red sock already! I didn't even have that much knitting time this weekend! I think its for a few reasons... a) her feet are much smaller than Erm's, so - fewer stitches b) no pattern on these, which while boring, goes much quicker c) maybe because these are red, which is my favorite color? I don't know! I also need to learn to do 2 socks at a time Magic Loop style, because I like Magic Loop a lot. But, without counting my rows, I can't really ensure that both socks are going to be the same unless I do them both at the same time. Maybe, just maybe, that will be a new project... Red Sock below!

Another thing we did this weekend was register at Crate and Barrel! It was way more fun than I thought it was going to be, and I knew it was going to be pretty fun. They treat you like royalty there! It was so nice to walk around, sipping a mimosa and just shooting that little gun away. I have heard stories of the men all wanting to control the gun, but not Erm. He was happy to hold things up for me so I could shoot them with the gun. Such a gentleman! It was great to get another thing checked off the list, but it was fun at the same time! More wedding stuff this week!
