Socks and Big Announcement

Yay! Socks! I am almost finished my first sock and I am so very very happy. How could I have missed out on socks for the past 5 years? I just don't know. I have about 2 inches of jersey left before I start shaping the toe. They have gone very quickly considering that I am knitting on size 3 needles. I should really be starting my on Christmas presents for the fam, but I just can't put my sock down. And don't even mention poor butterfly. She has been neglected for a week now.


Today I found a new online knitting magazine through Fig and Plum . It's called anticraft. It is very anti-cute and anti-pink. It's nice to see a different kind of knitting mag pop up. It's not for everyone, but it's one to watch for sure. I loved the little blurb on theCurse your Boyfriend sweater. And I definately must have the Snowball's Chance in Hell armwarmers!

And now for the big announcement.......

I'm engaged!!!!!!!

The big day happened on our birthday in New Hope with the sheep cheering him on. I would have mentioned it sooner, but I didn't want to ruin the surprise for my Tuesday night SnB girls. Next fall will probably be when everything goes down. He is so excited about planning the wedding. I am soooooo glad I will have help and won't have to do everything myself.
