There's always time to knit..

So this week, we found out we'll be expecting a little boy in November!! We're very excited, it was what I was feeling all along, the sonogram was so amazing. I'm feeling much better lately, thank god- 16 weeks is a long time to be so sick, you almost forget what it feels like to feel normal. However, just as I'm feeling good, Mr.Man's birthday has crept up on me, which means it's time for our all out, drag out, birthday bash of a bbq in my back yard. Our annual summer slam party is this weekend!! 94 degrees, is that all? hmmm... I'll be putting my mother and best friend to WORK!! I left the shop a few minutes early tonight to hit Wegman's- of course I have to make everything from scratch because ordering food would have much easier, but this year's theme is a luau, and we need tasty treats that are going to be fresh and delicious. So, the food shopping is done, but nothing can really be prepared until tomorrow night, so in the meantime... I grabbed some yarn on the way out the door today to start this tonight...

Road to Golden from Knit scene fall 2007. Don't ask me why now, I just really love it. I feel like playing with color and I've wanted to knit it for a while. Two nights before 50 guests are to arrive at my house seemed like the perfect time to start a sweater:) I even have one of the Wild Things next to me to help me along. He's going to remind me what I might look like by the end of the weekend, actually I think he's kind of cute.

I chose some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino and a skein of Kersti and now I'm couch bound with my knitting. I'll worry about picking up balloons, the decorating, making the punch, and the 10,000 dishes that I need to cook, toss, and bake tomorrow night - right now, I just really need to knit.
