Last week Anna and I went to the yarn store near campus, Fiberfillia. It was one of the most fantastic experiences ever. I haven't really been knitting for too long. I've made two scarves and two hats, but I wanted to get started on socks. So I did! :-) The owner of the store fixed me up with yarn choices and a beginning pattern and told me to come back as soon as I was ready to turn the heel. We got Anna set for her first scarf, and her stitch count has gone up and down several times. Maybe I wasn't the best person to teach her. ;-)
This weekend I made sloppy joes. Well, I tried to make sloppy joes. I went to the grocery store and tried to buy things that I thought were in sloppy joes. Only I was wrong. I made sure to look up a recipe on Sunday, and fixed it. I'm awesome. Tonight I paired it with mac and cheese, the blue box variety. I'd like to give a shout-out to John Roderick of The Long Winters for his tip to make it with heavy cream instead of milk. It makes an unhealthy side dish that much worse for me, but it tastes so much better!
I got a postcard from Emily today too. That was really unexpected, but awesome.
Anyway, I'll post pictures of my socks as soon as they're finished.
