Sock Update: I have learned how to do the heel flap... and turn the heel. Next weeks class will finish off the toe. I have already started it's mate. I'm hoping to have it past the heel this week. Just depends on how busy we are!

SOCK UPDATE.. This is the yarn that I dyed. I love it. Way too much fun! And here is the beginning of my very first sock. The teacher tells you things that a pattern doesn't. At least with sewing there are not hidden tricks to the pattern!
I think this sock thing is way fun. So I'm sure there will be more! I'm going to try to get my 2nd one (the mate) started this week. But since I work (duh) I probably won't get them finished at the same time, but hopefully close!

Sock Class
Saturday was dying day for my first sock class. It was quite fun! I've never dyed yarn before. I can't wait until next week when we actually start knitting!

My youngest niece is having her tonsils out tomorrow. I'm hoping it'll go well and that she recovers quickly. My Mom is also going back to work this week. She'll only be doing two days. So hopefully it won't be too hard on her.

Next weekend (besides my sock class), my niece and nephew will be going to 4-H camp. They're bummed that they can't stay in the same room. Aha, 10 yr olds! I just hope they do okay. The niece that is going has never been away from home that long! Hope her Mom does okay too!

Also next weekend? Father's Day, and my parents 45th Wedding Anniversary. Whew, is that enough or what!

Hope everyone has a good week.

Saturday, June 2nd
I arrived at my parents at 7:30am for breakfast. I ordered bacon (my Dad's was the cook) he also fixed pancakes. Yummy. I love getting to "order" breakfast. My Mom had surgery on May 25th, quite unexpected, but her gall bladder need out, quickly. And the surgeon also found a hernia! A two for one surgery. She's doing great. She's ready to be able to do more (getting bored I think). I planted some flowers for her while I was waiting on my sister.

I went along with my sister's family to watch two of my nieces play ball. Erikah's (8 yrs) game started at 9 am. This is tourney time and her team won. I took pictures, but don't have them on my computer yet.
In between games, we went back to my sister's to eat lunch. We only had about twenty minutes until we had to leave for Llylah's (6 yrs) game, it started at noon. I have to say that Llylah stopped a ball (she was playing short stop), it rolled up and hit her eye. She played the ball to second. Then she cried. What a player! She wasn't hurt, we think the ball scared her. They also won their game.
I was amazed at how well these kids played. It was hot, humid and around 86 outside!
And because Erikah's team won their first game? We had another game that started at 2pm! The 7 & 8 yr old that played their first game at 9am! Played and won their second game that day! I had a really good time. Really enjoyed listening to the kids.
Just so you know, since both games were won, there were two games on Sunday (one each).
Erikah's team won their game and have another to play. Llylah's team lost , but only by one point to a team that was undefeated. Llylah's team had only lost two games.

I'm just getting anxious for my sock class that startes on Saturday! My knitting seems tame compared to the ballgames! But I am very excited!
