Girls Nite Out

Tonight is "Suppa Club." We took the summer off from hosting and cooking and have been visiting some of the restaurants around the area. I'm looking forward to a great big chocolate martini from Metro! and enjoying great food with my girlfriends.

DSL update: the idiots at Verizon have yet again screwed up my order. It has been cancelled again. This is the third time in 6 weeks. If it wasn't for the fact that I have so much registered with my email and website, I would have dropped them like a hot potato a long time ago. I'm not sure how much longer I can take dial up.

I came to the realization earlier this week that working at home has lots of pros but the biggest con is that I crave human interaction. I miss even the most trivial conversations that I used to have in the workplace. I DONT miss the office politics and my insane CEO though. I guess that's why I would love a knitting buddy. Someone to call when I'm stuck on a pattern or someone to sit and knit with over a cup of coffee. I haven't given up. I'm polling my Junior League to see if any of them knit and would be interested in getting together. I also found a knitting meetup website so maybe I'll get lucky. There ARE other knitters in the area. I'm just not looking in the right places.

I finally found the cord for my digital camera and was able to upload the pictures of the baby sweater and the finished booties. I still have to get the ribbon for the booties and block them. The sweater is flying now that I don't have to count the increases and slip slip stitches. It's going to be too cute :) I hope to have a picture of the little guy in his new sweater sometime this fall.

I may go back to the LYS and get more Morocco in contrasting colors. I'm worried that 600 yards isn't enough to make anything significant. I'm still searching for a pattern. I took a gander at Elann (thanks for the suggestion, Heather) for patterns. This place is SO dangerous to visit. I always find something that I like. Pure peruvian alpaca is featured there in the most beautiful colors for only $3.75 a skein. Do I need more yarn? No. Do I WANT more yarn? YES! Time to breathe deep and avert thine eyes...
