The Happiest Place on Earth

Listening To: Elenor by Me First and the Gimme Gimmies

Yesterday we got back from a lovely 2 days spent in the Happiest place on earth, and it was soo fun. Not only the rides and the park, but spending time with my mom and sister. We had an awesome trip. I knit some, too! What am I knitting while waiting in line for the Monorail? My July socks. I’m finishing up a pair of socks that have been hanging out on my needles for more than a year, and I’m almost to the heel turn, so that’s good. I decided to put down my Girl Cowl until I finish these socks, because I only have until the 31st to have them finished, but after that, it’s back to the Malabrigo.

Tomorrow, My mom, my sister, one of my sister’s best friends, and I are off to spend 2 days at the Happiest Place on Earth, and I’m stoked, no joke. I’ve never stayed overnight there, only days at a time, and I’m pretty excited about staying at The Disneyland Hotel. We are blessed that it’s only a few hours away.

Oh, and I found something to knit! My friend Michael posted on the “Man Cowl” he made for himself, and I really love it. Luckily, he posted a pattern, so I’m making one for myself!

Where is the Love?

I seriously haven’t touched my knitting in about a week. None of it. I have been a bit busier this week than normal, but really. I feel so uninspired. I want to knit, I just… don’t. What is wrong with me?? I feel like a need a new and exciting project, I just don’t know what that is. This sucks. Someone inspire me! What do I want to knit? Something fast and fun and captures my attention. Help me, help me!

Summery Knitting

Listening To: Shameless by The Let Up (I got to hang out with the guys from The Let Up a little while ago, and I really dig them. They did a cover of Billy Jean that was kick-butt.)

Anyway, It’s already July! Holy Guacamoly. It makes me kind of sad, Summer is almost over, and I have to go back to school in a month 😦

I’ve been knitting washcloths lately, they are awesome summer knitting. They are small and quick, and it’s fun to play around with different stitch patterns.

Grandmother’s Favorite Facecloth

The beginnings of the DW Darell Waltrip Dishcloth (I finished it, I just never got a picture)

But sadly, I have run out of Dishcloth Cotton. So, I started something new:

I started Danica with some yarn I bought on my 4th of july trip, but I’m sure If I’m gonna keep with it. I dunno if I love the color combo as much as when I bought it. Plus, Entrelac is a pain in my butt to knit, so I dunno. Anyone have any ideas on what else I can make with 2 different color balls of Paton’s Classic Merino?

I had an awesome time over my 4th of July weekend, did you?

I knit a bit:
That’s the beginning of a Montego Bay scarf.

Cooled of in the Ice-cold creek:

And just generally hung out and had fun with my family. Layla liked it:


I hope you all had a nice one. My camera ran out of batteries (and I forgot my charger, doh!) before the fireworks, so no pictures of them, oops!
