Heading out

I've been meaning to post all week but just couldn't get it together . Mike and I are heading out tomorrow morning for Maine . We've rented a house with some friends and are hoping that the gorgeous weather that we've had all summer will continue for another week . I'm dying to stick my toes into the ocean ! We're mostly packed and ready to go , actually the knitting is ALL packed , reading material is organized , clothes , well I'm still doing laundry ...

This is what I have planned to work on while Mike drives . I'm at the toe decreases on the first sock so should be able to get a good start on the second sock on the way down . They're called Circle Socks . These are another pair earmarked as a Christmas gift .
We had some very nice news yesterday , Max and Stef found out that they were having a boy . I'd kinda been hoping for a girl but it will be fun for Jessey to have a little buddy . Guess the little pink sweater goes in the gift basket . Someone is bound to have a girl sooner or later !
I'll be bringing my computer but I'm not sure if I'll be able to have access to the Internet so I'll catch you all in about a week . Have a great week !

Have fun in Maine. After you dip your toes in that cold Atlantic ocean you are going to NEED some warm wooly socks. ;-)

Have lots of fun with your friends!
I've printed out that pattern too, just not found the right yarn for it yet.

Have fun! What a cheerful purple colourway.

Isn't great to get a start on Christmas knitting? Maybe we'll be done so early that we spend all of December socializing and enjoying ourselves without any pressure!

Have a fun time! I think we're headed for the beach this afternoon. I checked our forecast, nothing but sun up til next Friday (but that can change really fast). Can't complain about this summer. Last summer it rained every weekend pretty much. We've had hardly any rain this summer, but a lot of people have dry wells as a result.

Have a great time! Nothing like a Maine vacation! In York, two weeks ago, the water was 64! sounds cold but it was warm for Maine!!

Where are you staying??
