SO close on finishing the new pattern!

Running

No way could I run with the youngest manlet yesterday, I was struck down by a horrible migraine all day.  *sigh*  However – we are definitely going to run today!!  I think we’re going to go for 4 today – I want to push it a little & push him a little, too.  :)  Might shoot for 2 with no walk breaks instead, though.  I think I’d rather do 4 with walk breaks, to be honest.  he he he

Knitting

I am SO excited!!  I have serious hopes of finishing up Draco this weekend.  A week is pretty much normal for me on a pair of socks – less if I spend time working on them every day, but I haven’t been able to do that with these.  I didn’t knit on them at all yesterday, the headache was just too bad to do much of anything.  Once I get them finished up, I’ll be getting the pictures done up just right and then will be sitting down & writing up the pattern.  I am SO excited because I absolutely LOVE how they are turning out.  As a bit of a hint – everyone has really liked them so far, but neither of the manlets would actually wear them, so they won’t be a good pick for socks for men.  Which I kind of already knew, of course, but I wanted these socks for ME anyway.  he he he

Miscellaneous

So the oldest manlet took on a wall Thursday night with his hand…  and the wall won.  Normally, I get on him about learning to better channel his temper.  However, circumstances being what they were?  I honestly cannot blame him…  by the time the night was over with, I wanted to punch a relatively immovable object myself (though mine was in the form of a woman that is probably 6 inches taller than me and easily 50+ pounds more than me, too).  So he & I had a visit to a lovely new ER – where we quickly discovered that the waiting time isn’t any better than the busiest ERs in the area.  We didn’t get to bed until 2am – which is what caused the migraine, of course.

Have a picnic at the park scheduled for tomorrow to hang with knitting friends – eat, gab & knit!  I am looking forward to that SO much!

Today’s Ravelry Search

Today I have challenged myself.  I wanted to highlight some really fantastic patterns that are all available to purchase via Ravelry.  Why would I do that?  Simple – I think we should support Ravelry however we can…  and buying patterns through their site accomplishes that objective rather well!  As does clicking ads, making a purchase & letting the seller know that you made your way via their Ravelry ad!  So I declare today the “Support Rav” day!  :D  Check these out…

OMG - brand new pattern - how can you resist?!?!

Jaw dropping amazing.  Seriously.  Considering the work that went in to this design, the price is VERY reasonable, I think!
