Thank You to Nick and Zach!

Thanks to Nick and Zach for driving Ben home from track practice. Since you won't accept any gas money, here are some hats to keep your heads warm in Rebels' colors! Hope you like them!

From Ben's grateful mother, aka hipknitta!

My Three Day Weekend Starts Today

I am in a very relaxed state of mind. I don't feel the need to rush around because I have an extra day off. Monday is Martin Luther King's Day and the schools are closed. I don't have to jam everything in on Saturday when I know I have 2 extra days to do so. Yes, this can backfire on me and by Monday I could be rushing around because I felt too laid back, but right now, in this moment in time, I am breathing easy and am glad to find the time to write this entry. Most of all, I will definitely program in some major knitting time.

What has this hipknitta been up to? Not much. A little knitting here. A little knitting there. I'm working on my third pair of socks. This pair took me quite a while to decide what pattern to use. I finally found one and am probably 4 inches done on the leg part.

Here's the last pair I finished. I'm actually wearing them today, on this very cold and cloudy day. We had another snowstorm on Wednesday (yes, I stayed home) and it's just too white out there. I am sick of the snow. This was our third storm in three weeks! I heard there's more snow on the way next week. Winter sucks!

I would love to smell some sunscreen and see a beautiful palm tree right about now!
