But I got a new bike. I am so excited. My mom bought me a new Schwinn Midtown and it rides like a dream. I am going to have so much fun not using my car this summer. I am trying to save money/gas by riding my bike.

So for something completely different….KNITTING…..I am almost finished with the left side of the cardigan for arwen. On my lunch break the other day I went to Jimmy Beans and bought some really cheap sock yarn in a beautiful colorway so I need to find a pattern.  

For the sock I am searching high and low for some yarn and patterns, so am excited.

HSKS here I come!!

May 4, 2008

I am so excited for the Harry Potter sock swap. This is my first swap ever so I am a little scared that I wont know whats totally going on. But I am going to give it my all and send an amazing package.

Well since its been a while since my last post…..I have finished the simply ginny socks and they are absolutely beautiful. (dont worry pics will be posted soon) while at my saturday morning knit group. I was so excited that I wanted to wear them out of the coffee shop but I was wearing flip flops and it was a little too hot for nice wool socks. 

Since beginning the sweater again I am happy to report that it has been very successful and I am half way done with the front left panel. Hopefully with all my wonderful finals I will be able to start the arm in the next few days. 

Thats all for now, folks
