This picture I snapped with my iPhone when I was on my way to knit night or BBQ night, who knows. I love sunsets, it is my favorite time of day and I couldn't let this one get away from me
Today I worked at my local LYS which I just love. I get to help people and when I see that little spark pop in their eye when something clicks makes my day. Plus who wouldn't love to work with yarn ???
There is nothing new off or on the needles however I have some yarn getting ready to come off the bobbin on the wheel, Woodstock. Yes, my wheel is named Woodstock. I have a Snoopy so I needed a Woodstock.
I did want to give a movie review. I recently watched, bought and have watched several times since Thursday the movie is Whip It. It is a movie about a high schooler who joins a Roller Derby team. It not only has great music, a good story, its ROLLER DERBY, I think its great. Maybe a parent should watch it first though, there is a mild scene that is a little... well out there. It is rated 13 and I recommend giving it a try. Let me know what you think of it.

It was a lot of fun to spin with the colors constantly changing it is almost 300 yards of Merino Sliver. Oh and the picture was taken before I set the twist so that is why is it kinky in the upper left of the skein.
On the knitting front, I casted on for a sock called " A Roll in the Hay" It is a really beautiful sock from the book, Joy of Sox. Unfortunately I cannot wrap my around the pattern. It took me a good 30 minutes to complete a single row of 68 stitches. I put it in time out and the next night I yanked the stitches off the needles and cast of for a completely different sock in some Jitterbug. Because Jitterbug makes everything better.
So I now have about 5 socks on the needles (that I can think of) and am fighting the old urge of casting on for more.
The pups are getting along better each day which makes me very happy. Mo & Snoopy chase each other around the house every night, and they have worked up to laying next to each other on my couch for about a 4 minute time span.
What would ya'll like next time? Pup or yarn pictures?

Snoopy and Mo and becoming cohorts in crime and best friends. Anyday now I sense and embush coming....
Snoopy is posing on his bed that Santa brought him for Christmas. He loves it very much. He will lay on it for about 5 minutes before he jumps on the couch and sleeps on that all night long. Odd Beagle.
More pics soon of what is going on in my world. Be prepared for doggy, yarny goodness and food!
