Family News

Well I guess it for real. Tony and my Dad are almost restaurant owners. The deal is almost done. We take over the middle of April, so things will change in our household.Tony is very excited, this is his dream to own his own business. To me it is scary but I know he has the knowledge to make it work and he will. There is no doubt in my mind there.

Micheal is doing well and miss home and Abby. Abby talked to him on Sunday for 5 minutes that is all the time they are allowed. The Drill Sargent stand behind the them and counts out the minutes and he has to answer "Yes Drill Sargent". Abby says he sent a letter and I should be getting his address soon so that way we can flood him with letters.

Chris is working all the time we never see him. But I guess that could be a good thing or not. "It " is still lurking around in the background and makes Chris feel uncomfortable at home he doesn't know if she will try to sneak in or not. So he stays at friends more then he is at home. I do wish he could get rid of her, we just don't know how to do it legally.

My life is moving right along. I have been busy, if I'm not at work, I'm knitting. That is coming along the only problem it is in singles. I have been test knitting patterns and I'm knitting one sock at a time. So now I have lots of singles, three pairs to be exact. I have to get them done somehow. I'm going to do one more test knit and then I am going to get caught up on all my knitting.
Gena and I are planning to go to Sock Summit in August. The class list was just released and registration will begin in May date tbd. We are getting plans worked up. We have decided to take the train down so neither of us have to drive and give up knitting time. I have to check out the hotels there is several Best Westerns in the area I need to make my reservations to get my discount so we can save there. We are now trying to pick out the classes we want to take and hope to get in to them. We have two we picked out the same. "Spindle Spinning Basic" it's something I want to learn and I have the spindles, I just don't know what I'm doing. The other class we have the same is Knitting for Speed. This class is given by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka The Yarn Harlot. This class examines the various techniques, attitudes and histories of the most productive sock knitters, and focuses on the “lever knitting” style. I don't know what it is but if it helps to make my knitting more efficient then I'm all for it. Now for the rest of the classes, we haven't decided. But I can't wait it should be a fun time and a great experience. Who knows we both might learn all kinds of new things that will make our knitting grow.
I post again later with pictures of my work. So keep your feet warm and those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.

Ooh...that Spindle class is the one that's at the top of my list, that is if I can swing it. I hope they'll release the class schedule in advance of registration too. I'd like to go, but only for a day or day and a half.
