I really did finish them

Believe it or not, I really did finally finish Rick's socks, and Matt's clogs. Infact the clogs have been felted, and Rick's socks... well, I have been having trouble keeping them clean long enough to get pics of them. so here they are.

Then there is the Cross Over Scarf, which is really quite an easy knit, once you wrap your brain around it. I am torn as to whether or not I will block this out. I love the feel and look of the yarn currently (Lang Mille Colori), but I can't help but wonder how it may look with a swish and some blocking. We shall see.

As for the BSJ, it is coming along. Each time I hold what will be the sleeves together I can't help but wonder if it isn't going to just swallow up a the 3yr old it is meant for. Then again, I would rather knit something she can grow into that something she has already grown out of.

Before Rick left of Korea (literally right before like at 0430 waiting to leave for the airport) we were discussing the concept of moving to the southwest - where we would like our forever home to be- before going to Germany. There is really only one reason I would consider this, since it would postpone my long desired move to Germany, and that reason is, if we go to Germany first from his current position - he would have to return here to VA for at least a year before taking a position out in the southwest. While I love my friends here dearly, that is one of the only things I like about this area. So the thought of having to come back here after having to leave Germany which will be hard enough as it is, is very, shall we say, unimpressive - depressing even. I know, I really just need to see what the universe has in store for us, but I am not the most patient of individuals. It is one of my lessons during this lifetime - patience - (not patients - which I have already worked through and will continue to move away from bit by bit). I want it all laid out in a nice neat plan..... NOW. OK, time to move on.

My wonderful friends over at Twinset awarded me a blogging award. That was really sweet. Now all I have to do, in my limited technology knowledge, is figure out how to do all the steps I am suppose to do to accept and pass on that award. I will figure it out in the next day or so.

OH and for those of you who knew I had scored a killer deal on a ticket to Hawaii - yeah, well, the big bubbas there decided they were just too busy to talk to Rick right now and and at the last minute suggested he not come until .... oh, say August AFTER the change of command. So needless to say part of the killer deal got sucked up into itinerary change fees. Phoooooeeeeyyyy I have thus decided I will create a bit of the tropics here for Rick and I and then we will spend a ver special Valentines weekend incommunicado from the rest of the world. So if you don't see a post over the weekend, or hear from me, it is OK, I will be back among the world again on Tues.

Have a wonderful week, if I don't pop in before that. :)
