After planning a camp out with our ward for about a month, going out and buying a tent that would fit the four of us comfortably, getting the marshmellows, and all the shabang for the camp out. We get a note on our door today,
same freaking day of the camp out saying that the whole thing has been changed. No more camp out, only a dinner and "come and socialize" thing. It seems that our camp ground was double booked and we were the suckers who missed out. Bryant was not very happy. He had been looking forward to camping out for a few weeks now. Personally, I am not a big fan of sleeping outside without the commodities of modern day plumming. But, my little Bryant was sure looking forward to it and it was a major let down.
In other news, yesterday's Knitters Nite at Yarn Today was a blast! There was commotion galore. Some of the gals had taken a new class offered the day before on Knitting 2 socks on 2 Cable Needles. Well....it was chaos. All we kept hearing was "and you turn the needle this way and you use the needle of the same color tip, and you jump, and you can't make two changes at the same time...etc.." To me, it sounded complicated and to think that I was very tempted in taking the class--I think that I will skip this one and try to learn it on my own with the help of Sockknitters. The whole idea of knitting 2 socks at the same time though is very alluring. It means having the socks actually MATCH!! I tried it with the 2 sets of dpns, but it is not working out, however, if you have both socks on the same needles, it seems that it forces you to finish them at the same time. Well, we'll see, I have the instructions, I have the needles, now all I need is the will and the time to try it out. Also, at this meeting, I got to meet Tina, a looming friend from one of the Yahoo groups I belong. We enjoyed chatting about looms and she brought with her a gorgeous loom knitted baby blanket done completely in popcorn stitch. The beauty of the blanket is revealed when you turn it around and see the non-popcorn side--it is just fabulous!
Lovely, lovely Kim is moving tomorrow to Lexington, VA. I was able to see her this evening to tell her goodbye. I have only known her for about 4 months, but she has been there with me since the beginning of my knitting with needles adventure. She is an amazing cook and I just love her chocolate truffles. She is sweet, lovely, kind, and most important-thoughtful, and she has a terrific sense of humor too. I will miss you, but we will see each other soon :). I wish you the best in VA...don't forget us lonely people in dry, hot, Utah.
