There's a BIG Smile on my face

And it's all because of some great news I got after work yesterday...

No, that's not my test, but it does belong to someone close to me.

YUP! It's official, I'm going to be an AUNTIE!!!!

I'm very excited about this news, maybe more so than my brother & sister-in-law. I've wanted to be an auntie for so long, and while my friends' kids are great, it's just not the same thing. Honestly, I don't think any of the rest of the family thought they were even interested in having kids, so this was a very pleasant surprise. I think it's going to take Mom a lot of getting used to. She REALLY never thought she was going to be a Grandma... she'll get over it! =) Anyway, I'm thrilled to bits & I've already started thinking about all of the knitting I can do. Between my cousing that's expecting in August & my new neice or nephew, the needles are going to be smoking with all of the baby knitting that's about to commence.

So...uh...yeah, knitting content to come soon. I have 1 pair of socks done & waiting for pictures & should have another pair done tonight...must find camera

Sock Madness update

Well, I finished my most recent pattern last night & i have to say that I really like them. The pattern, again, was a pain in the arse, but I'm glad I stuck with it & I'll probably make them again.

hmmm...the camera appears to be having issues. This picture looks really blurry. Oh well, that's as good as it gets right now.

The next pattern comes out on Friday...Round 6. It's looking to be some kind of stranded pattern which should be fun. Of course, true to form, I don't have any yarn picked out. I like to see the pattern before deciding on what I'm going to use. Maybe I'll check out one of the yarn stores tomorrow night to see if there's anything I just have to have for this round.
