Socks and Yarn
Sunday, July 22, 2007
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a easy knee high sock pattern. -=giggle=- I mean hell it's hard to even find a knee sock pattern that I like. Which is causing me a fit of frustration since I have pretty much glanced around for the better part of an hour. Any book suggestions or pattern thoughts?

On another note, aside from being frustrated about not finding a pattern, I am also a little upset. I was looking around for yarn in various areas of the net. All the good yarn stores everyone talks about are all WAY out of my price range to even browse through. Which sucks because I found more than a handful of yarn that I would kill to have but will probably never get the possibility of indulging in. -=giggle=- It's not like a really need anymore yarn but I like to see what all the fuss is about. The bloggers/Get Stitchy girls led me to Malabrigo so I trust their judgment on the wonderful yarn they have gracing their stash. Hopefully one day I'll get there. =P

On a happier note...

Pounce and I went out to see Grease lastnight at the playhouse right across the street. It was really well done. The props were impressive and far from amateur. For the most part all the actors/actresses were wonderful. There were some that went alittle out of pitch or their voices broke but other than that all went well. It was definitely better than the production I went to last year. Next year for their 20th anniversary they're putting on "West Side Story". I was thinking about auditioning or finding out when auditions are. I love the theater and I have always wanted to get my foot back in the door. We'll see if I do or do not do it. With school starting up again I might have to just wait for a while.

I believe that is all for now.
