Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, and it feels good to feel up to sitting here and writing!

Before, during, and after we had company visit, I had a nasty cold — I gave you a preview earlier with the tissues and cough drops pic, and I figured that my camera doesn’t have enough pixels to fit into a picture all of the tissues used in the last month (and really, who saves them — no, no, I don’t want to know!)

In my cold-induced fog, I completely forgot to take pictures of the completed surprise projects that I gave you a teaser or two for! Well, they were actually four pairs of socks — made from worsted weight yarn — that I figure will make great slippers!

My father, mother, sister, and brother-in-law really seemed to enjoy them! Oh, well — guess I need to make more socks to take pictures of!

We really enjoyed our visit — it has been way too long since we’ve seen them, and already our 3-(almost 4)-year-old can’t understand why we can’t see them again today! There was lots of talking, crafting, “Wii-ing”, and more — but the highlight for me, anyway, was the scooter rides!

Unfortunately, none of the adult passengers were willing to have their scooter rides immortalized in picture on the internet, but suffice to say, there were many great facial expressions captured on film! Even Pop-pop and Mom-mom joined in, so they can now say they’ve done it all!

The night before everyone left, we went to the Grape Vine Restaurant (in Paris, no less!) This restaurant has become a favorite to us, with home-cooked appeal and a friendly atmosphere — the ladies among us always love to see the grape vine quilt on the wall as well!

I’m going to leave you with a hand dyed yarn teaser – some semi-solids! I’ve been able to dye a few skeins of yarn, and am hoping to increase my inventory in my Etsy shop over the next week or so!

I’ll have some pictures of my newest yarn listings, along with some sock patterns to come, in the next few days!
