Hats, hats and more hats (and the occassional scarf)

I finished my first pair of Christmas socks (for Mom) and decided to move on to some hats and scarves. Moda Dea came out with some really nice new yarns this fall. I forget all of their names but the marble-looking one has knit up beautifully (and fast!). Here is the first scarf (cast on and worked long-wise because I would rather do some really long rows than work a million short ones) and the first three hats.

Aug 6th--Happy Birthday to ME!

Happy birthday to Me,
Happy birthday to Me,
Happy Birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday to Me!!

3 new knitting mags came out (I bought them--of course) and a box of Godiva (also from me to me). Mom gave me a book of knitting stitch patterns (way cool!). DH and the boys gave me a Chef's knife (way, way, way cool!!!), a large serrated bread knife, some wooden spoons/utensils, and some Very funny cards. My mom and dad and my MIL came over for dinner. DH and the Midget made my cake (yummy). And, for once the DH didn't get moody and nasty on my special day and actually let me enjoy it. (what is with that??? Childhood trauma?)

August 5th--A trip to the Philly Zoo

The Philly Zoo (the oldest zoo in America) was open on August 5th, 2006 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We were there the ENTIRE time!! And amazingly enough we only missed the Small Mammal House, the Aviary, the Petting Zoo, the Swan boat rides, The Treehouse, and the Zoo Train.

I worked on two socks in the car and got the heels turned on both of them but alas, no pictures of knitting today...
