so yeah--not a whole hell of a lot going on around here. i bought some cotton and started making a washcloth--not that interesting i admit, but i am enjoying playing with different stitch patterns. oddly enough i find that i don't really leave the house with the washcloths i am making--they are strictly a couch project. i am not sure whether this is because they aren't interesting enough to show off or if i am just reserving them for home b/c they are mindless enough to knit while watching grey's anatomy (which, by the way, is ALL i want to watch). i have been making headway on the swatchy bit as well, and i still love it! BUT. i also started something new. socks. this hippie's going to make some, too. i am actually terrified of socks, but i bought some
let's see--what else is going on...
some friends of ours had a baby this weekend. a new little girl, bringing their child total up to three. as always, this is bittersweet for me. happy for them, and also jealous. i am still hoping for one of my own someday, although time is starting to run out. *sigh*
also, we went to another concert this weekend, this one with many many bands: black stone cherry, hinder, crossfade, breaking benjamin, three days grace, and staind. all of them were good, but breaking benjamin stood out above the pack--the lead singer just has such a great voice and a talent for song-writing. definitely see these guys live if you get a chance. however, be prepared for a youth-of-america overload if you do. these bands are young, and so are the bulk of their fans--the girl who was sitting beside me had ditched work and snuck out of her house to come to the concert. she was eighteen, and she was very, very jealous of my shoes.
