New new new...

So this weekend was interesting to say the least...

To start out the weekend we went to Bergs Ski and Snowboard shop here in town. We went in to talk about Cross Country Skies. We are looking at getting the Orbiter by Fisher. However, by the time we left we had gotten new downhill skies. I do not know how that happened except that the sales guy was great. The picture is to come...

Then when we got home I rushed to the mail box and found my new yarn. Now the description said it was a light tan color but it is green. My disappointment is huge but it will still turn out to be a great piece. I think I am going to make this. I hope it comes out as good as in the pictures.

I also started dad's socks...I worked my fingers to the bone and I have hardly gotten ahead. I went to the LYS and got some man color yarn to start. (however due to the selection I am relaying on the fact that he is color blind to help me out...there may be some orange involved in the colorway). I have pictures but due to the pathetic nature of my progress it will have to wait until next time...

So to wrap this up I stated two new projects and bought two new sets of downhill skies...what is wrong with me...I must have to much time on my hands...

P.S. I have not started on any Christmas presents yet...I might be in trouble. I do not think that I will be able to knit them. I need tobecome a little better at the whole knitting thing before I venture on a whole round of presents...but good news is we are starting to look for tickets to come home...if anyone sees a good deal let us know.

I'm glad you had so much fun this weekend. The boys keep saying they want to get 'good enough' to ski the "big hills" with Aunt Brenda....now they may have to change that to Aunt Kayla!
We went to a ski swap this weekend and I got the boys their helmets, skis and boots, so they are all set and can't wait until it snows!
