Happy Friday!

I am soooo glad today is Friday, I just found out that my local Micheal's now carries Lion Brand Sock-Ease and I am soooo excited because now I can make a socks for under $8. Sock yarn that makes 2 socks for under $8 is crazytalk. I will be promptly leaving work and headed straight there so I can cast on some spring socks for myself.

On the Wedding front, lots to do, weddings are a lot of work and can be a lot of headache if you let them. I refuse to let my wedding be a headache. My hunny would rather just go to the justice of the peace and get it over already and spend the money on something else and I totally agree, but I am an only child and want my family to be there. So to compromise we are keeping it small, the ceremony will be open to everyone, but the reception will be family and really close friends only.

I hope everyone has a great weekend wherever you maybe!

Wedding Shoes

So far I've come across two shoes online that are real contenders for my big day:



I like them both a lot, but I think I'm leaning more towards the first pair....we will see. I love high heels and sparkly ones make it that much better. I like classic and simple. I've already found my dress and I think it will be perfect, I won't post a pic of the dress until the wedding's a surprise. The big day is August 29 so lots of planning to do.

Alpaca Sox

My newest project are alpaca socks for my fiancée. I've made him one pair of socks before, but they aren't the same size, opsy! I made them when I first started knitting socks and they are not my best work. But I bought the book Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch and I think I am on the right path now. I am loving knitting with the Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn, I thought at first it would be to fluffy, but it knits up fine. My Hunny has size 13 wide feet, so these socks might take a minute to make. I will post a review on the book in another post, but so far I like it slot.
In other news I've been trying to get the wedding in order. We want it to be a simple ceremony and not alot of hullabullu. The focus for us is on the marriage and not the wedding day so we are not trying to go broke over it at all.
I hope everything is going well for you where ever you might be!
