I have a new knitting project I just finished.
Now I need to find a hat pattern to go with them!
I found a really cool knitting website/community called Ravelry. It's just amazing. You can search for patterns and yarns and shops... There is also a feature to keep track of your own supplies (yarn, needles, etc) and projects you 've been working on.
One thing I really like about it is if you have a pattern from a book or magazine, you can search for it and see what other people think of it, or what it turned out like for knitters of varying abilities.
The pattern for the mittens came out of a book I have called "One Skein Wonders." I could go on Ravelry, search for projects from the book and see who had done them, what they turned out like, what kind of yarn they used... it's really cool!
I also discovered, through Ravelry, there is another yarn shop in the town next to mine. I haven't checked it out yet, but I have plans too (once I can afford to buy more yarn)!
Okay, so now time for a Samism:
Sam's latest thing is telling knock-knock jokes. Josh loves them too, but since he's nearly seven, he tells "real" jokes he's read out of a book. Sam makes them up, and they make absolutely no sense.
Here is his favorite.
Sam: Knock Knock
Me: Who's there?
Me: Angry who?
Sam: Angry in your tummy!!!!!
The he bursts into fits of laughter.
Josh: I don't get it. That's not a real joke!
This, to me, is just further evidence that boys are weird.
