Champagne Wishes & Opal Dream(catcher)s

I can't believe it's Monday again already. The past few days have been a blur. We've been super busy with the kids. This being and "odd" year (meaning 2005) poor Dan and Darcie have to spend Thanksgiving with their asshole father. So we had our Thanksgiving last night at my parents. No turkey. Dan and Darcie are going to be burnt out on Turkey come Thursday so we decided to have ham. Then my father decided to have roast beef because he doesn't care much for ham. But Dan was all puckered up for ham. So we had both. We had stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, gravy, rolls and fruit salad. Yummy, yummy. (Oops...sorry to go Wiggles on you there.) It was so good. We came home from dinner last night and I just wanted to curl up in a ball on the couch and go to sleep. Instead of doing that though, I had to help Dan with a social studies report. Then Diane came over to show me her scarf. She's working on the Twisty Scarf and it's coming along nicely. She's also working on a pair of clogs and 2 other scarves. I think she's addicted.

I taught some magic loop sock classes over the weekend at Adirondack Yarns. Over all they went really well. Much better than the last clog class. One poor girl hadn't knit in quite some time and couldn't remember how to purl. She was going to come back on Sunday for help but she didn't. I hope she isn't so discouraged that she gives up. I'll have to check with Sue to see if she has her name and number.

If any of you are as addicted as I am to socks wait until you hear this news. My friend Nicole lives in Germany and has given me permission to give you all her email address as a source of Opal yarn. The new Dreamcatcher line is out over there and it's gorgeous. They're only $11 per ball and shipping isn't bad either. I've been patiently waiting for this new line for what feels like forever. I'm having Nicole send me all 8 balls and the shipping is only $10 for the whole package. If you're interested just let her know and be sure you tell her you heard about her here so you get lower pricing. The more she orders, the more she saves and then the more we save. I love the trickle down effect in this case!

Is magic loop really faster when making socks?
