first things first! here are some more finished xmas mitts, i have two more pairs to go for the ladies. one of them is for a 6 year old and you know i'm scared to alter patterns so i'm not really sure what to do. and how big are 6 year old hands?! ah! anywhos, i also started the guys' gifts, a pair of dashings! so far so good, i really like this color. it's a steel grey, right up my alley. :)
patrice and i spent the morning with some mango and harry potter, perfect way to start the day if you ask me! then we headed to a friend's for some grilling on his roof. it was the perfect day for it, perhaps a little windy, but it was great. i never liked summer here before. it was always so hot, sweaty people always seemed to be bumping into me, etc. and now, i just love it. i really feel like i am seeing everything with new eyes. i have a new lease on life! ;) i feel really lucky.
and when the sun set, we got a fireworks show! i'm sure the city was celebrating my return. ;)
tomorrow i go to my new place! and you know i'm going to go to that yarn store that is around the corner asap. i have almost NO yarn with me. ah!!! so purchases might have to be made. i'll let you know how it goes!
