Happy Friday! This week went FAST and I'm very excited that it's the weekend. We're going to be hanging out at the beach on Saturday (which we usually do at least one weekend day) if the weather is warm enough. It's supposed to be in the high 60's, so let's hope they're wrong and it's a little warmer! Sunday we are heading to Ink-N-Iron which should be awesome. We've always wanted to go but have never gotten the chance until this year. It's in Long Beach, at the Queen Mary. It will be fun to just walk around, check out the car show and listen to music. After that, we'll probably head to one of our favorite Tiki Bars that is in that area, Don the Beachcombers. We don't get over there as much as we'd like, so it will be nice to get a bite to eat and a few drinks while there. One of my favorite So Cal yarn stores, Alamitos Bay Yarn Company, is in the area as well, so I hope to get a chance to stop by. I'd love to get my hands on some Malabrigo Sock or Madelinetosh Lace. We'll see, since they are only open a few hours on Sundays. With all that going on, I hope to have a chance to get some knitting done, I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Now on to awesomeness! That's right.... I FINISHED MY FIRST PAIR OF SOCKS!!!!! I'm super happy about it. They fit nice, though a little loose for shoes. They'll be my house socks, due to the fact that I used size US 3 needles. They are crazy comfortable, and really don't want to take them off! I guess I will have to at some point to wash them. LOL The yarn is crazy soft and I have quite a bit of it left. I still have to weigh it, but I have no idea what to do with it. Any ideas?
