I've been internetless at my apartment since my roommate left (and experiencing serious Ravelry withdrawal) because I'm running into issues using my boyfriend's modem, so I figured I'd post a quick update from my parents' place.
Not having internet = lots of time to get knitting done! I finished my dad's socks (pictures TK) and just cast on for a sock from "Knitting Vintage Socks" for my brother (size 1 needles, eep). We've got a three-hour drive to Pittsburgh today so I'm hoping I get lots done. We're visiting my cousin who's in the hospital and my two-week-old cousin, Grayson, and lots of family. I can't wait. Oh and we'll be eating the best pizza in the world.
My mom and I already hit a yarn store - Knitters Mercantile in Columbus. It was HUGE and had lots of nice stuff. I was in the shopping mood, but not a whole lot jumped out at me. I got two pretty yellow skeins of Louet Gems and some Berroco sock yarn that is nylon/acrylic and super soft - I don't recall the type of yarn (for some reason I want to call it the 'model' as if it's a car, haha) but it was only $7 for yarn for a whole pair of socks, so I figured it was worth a shot. I had no desire to buy any more - I think my heaping basket of sock yarn has too strong a call right now.
I'm battling some kind of chest cough/sinus thing and it's made running difficult. I'm trying not to worry about it, I know I'll get back into it when I'm better. (Not like I'd want to run in this cold Ohio weather, huh?!)
