Winter wonderland

So I realized in my last post that I didn't tell you all where we are going.....
There will definately be alot of these there...
And I might also be able to pick up a few moves from this....
Thats right ya'll we're going to CUBA!!! I'm pretty excited! I've wanted to go to Cuba for a couple of years now and we are finally getting the chance to go. I can't wait to lay on that beach and not have to think about work or how cold it is.
Its actually nice out this morning, we got a big chunk of snow last night while I had a little nap by the fire :)
I was amazed when I went out to take this picture this morning how mild it was out. Now thats what i'm talking about. I could handle tons of snow if it was just mild out and not so frigid.

So Project Spectrum started yesterday and you'll remember me saying I have nothing in those colours to knit with and I didn't want to stray from my tweedy aran cardi. Well after yesterday's post it clicked and I remembered the sweater I had been DYING to make but didn't want to stop knitting the tweed. Well GUESS what colour the yarn is?????? It MUST be fate hehehe
Grey AND blue in the one yarn, how sweet is that. Now I didn't have the pattern book for the sweater, I did that on purpose so that I wouldn't start it before I had finished the current project but yesterday I went ahead and ordered it. Hopefully it will arrive before next weekend when we leave and I could cast on and take a sleeve with me. I also need to figure out what sock project I want to take with me. I don't want to do just a plain sock but I also don't want to have to look at a pattern every two seconds while i'm there. Any suggestions!

Sooo the mouse story...... yeah I heard the mouse in the wall again. Apparently Moose got a mouse, but not the RIGHT mouse, or maybe there were two of them. Who knows! So we'll have to see if we can locate the other one. Knowing my luck we'll come back and they will be all settled in the house, sprawled out on the couch infront of the fire or something!

Off to get some things done!

Mice usually have friends ... or relatives. :-)

CUBA!!! I'm so jealous.

And I love that yarn. You're very naughty for teasing us with that.

Chris said...

Cuba?? I am REALLY jealous! Lucky you. Gorgeous yarn, too - I can see how it would lead you astray from your other projects.

Rebekah said...

Should I tell you how many mice we caught in our house this year, 14! I couldn't believe it.

Cuba, that is so cool.

Peg said...

Dave's right - they do like company - especially their own kind!
Have fun on your holiday!

Jeanne said...

Cuba! That is cool. It's never been on my list of places to go, 'cause I can't...not easily anyway. I would like to go though.

Ren said...

oooh, cuba! think of me when you fly over florida! : )

and that yarn is gorgeous, too!

Cuba, I'm so jealous. Have a great time. I love the wool

Shelley said...

Have you tried a feather and fan sock yet? That is just 4 rows that are repeated and easily memorized. I did a blueberry waffles sock up in baby size and the pattern is also easily memorized...you can use the pattern in an adult size as well.

Amy Boogie said...

How exciting that you're going to cuba!

One mice usually means many mice as they all said. Good luck to Moose and getting rid of them.

Ren said...

kelly, thank you so much for checking to make sure i was ok after the storm! luckily, neither i nor any of my family live in the area that was hit hardest. i got a major rainstorm (and tornado watch), but that was all.

p.s. my email is shado209 at gmail dot com if you ever need it again. : )

Rachel said...

Wow, Cuba! What a trip! Have a fantastic time.

Some basic ribbed sock with a cable up each side could be simple to knit but somewhat interesting. Or something plain with a basic lace motif on each size, maybe? I'm not much of a sock expert, so my suggestions are all kind of vague, I'm afraid.

Ole' Chica!

(Love that yarn!!!!!)

Cuba! That's awesome. Have a great trip!

As for socks... my vote is for the Hederas... 4 rows to learn, but the pattern that the sock creates is SO fancy that it looks like way more effort than it was. I don't know what it is, but I love Hederas so much!

PS: You are SO right about the rippity-rip-rip and re-knitting. I suppose it's only fair if you have to, then I have to. What happened to your cardi?! (bites nails).
