Surprise Vacation


I just wanted to pop in and update you all on a little of what's been going on around here lately.  First off, I am still working on the "socks challenge," I'm about half-way done the foot of the first sock for next week's pair.  I've been working on it off and on for the last couple of days.  Now I've had a few people ask me how long it takes me to knit a pair of socks - well I've never timed myself, but it all depends on how much time and attention I can dedicate to them.  If I don't have much else going on and have lots of knitting time during the day, then I can usually finish a pair in a couple of days.  However,  I usually like to give myself a week or more to work on them, that way I don't feel rushed.  Oh and by the way, that's when I'm knitting just a plain vanilla sock, not a fancy patterned one - those tend take longer depending on the amount of patterning.  My advice would be to just keep knitting and before you know it, you'll have them done :)  A freshly finished pair of socks is quite the exciting thing I tell you.

In other news, it is my birthday tomorrow!! (well, really it's today since it's now after midnight, but since I haven't gone to bed yet, I don't consider it to already be tomorrow)  Yay!  I feel very blessed that the Lord has given me another year to celebrate :D  Each year is such a wonderful gift, and I'm working on learning how to enjoy my life more and more each day with His help!  My amazing parents are sending me to Florida for my birthday present!!!!!!  How fun is that?!?!  My Aunt and Uncle took their two grandsons on vacation down there and me and my cousin Matt are flying down to visit for a week.  He flies out tomorrow and I fly out on Saturday.  This will be my first time flying alone, so there will be a lot of trusting in the Lord to see me though it all!  I'm very excited though!  And would definately appreicate your prayers :) 

I'm taking my Netbook with me, so I can share some of my trip with you all.  Now there is the process of choosing which projects to take along for the week.  I'm thinking definately some socks....but what else?? 

Well, that will give me something to think about for tonight!  I hope you all had a lovely day today and a great start to the long weekend tomorrow!  I will probably not post again until Monday, so see you all then!

Much love xx
