They really are flying off the needles.

When I started this run of scarves, I only intended to knit a couple of them. Now, it’s an obsession. I can’t stop: the yarn, the patterns, the instant gratification. It’s like a drug. And unlike Huey Lewis, I don’t want a new drug.

Friday’s Feast:

Who is your favorite news anchor/reporter? Why?

Brian Williams. I’ve liked him ever since he had his own news show on MSNBC. I watch his Nightly News every night and read his blog. He’s the only anchor/reporter I can watch and feel like he/she knows what he/she is talking about. (Katie Couric I’m looking at you.)

Name 3 foods that are currently in your freezer.

Chicken, strawberries and peroigoes.

If you were to have the opportunity to name a new town or city, what would you call it?

Ack. I don’t like these silly questions.

Main Course
What will most likely be the next book you read?

1776. I’m going to start it tonight.

I knit a bit more on the Pastel Rainbow socks:

I like how this pattern looks, but knitting it is boring me out of my skull.

So, I knit a little on the Berry Pink socks:

Parker likes to strike a pose on the back of the couch:

While Romeo prefers to curl up in his blanket:

Samantha’s love affair with the pink bunny continues:

Kishka finally got a chance to play with the bunny while Samantha was sleeping:

Kishka also kept a close eye on me:

The girls practiced synchronized sleeping:

A gorgeous afternoon:

morphed into another sensational sunset:
