Another good day.

As promised, here is my Socks That Rock acquisition. My fingers are just itching to get started with it but a resolution is a resolution. So, onward and upward.

Here is the mitten I've been doing the non-UFO design work on. It is a charming little thing and I'm currently test knitting the pattern yet again in the proper type of bulky yarn. More pictures of the actual samples later.

Well, the boys took second in the hockey tournament. It came down to a battle of the goalies. The regulation ended in a 1 to 1 tie. It went through two overtimes and a full shoot out before the other team managed to squeak one by our goalie. Our substitute goalie was solid the whole game and even had this shot. It just popped up off his glove and bounced back into the net. He read it all the way in and just got a bad bounce. Our team played a gritty game and managed to out shoot the other team 30 to 14. Their goalie was just that good. Kudos to both teams because it was a blast to watch.

For now, I have an aching back and a very hoarse throat but it was worth it because it was a great way to end the tournament. We'll get 'em next time!

Very sweet mittens.

I think I knitted up that Nodding Violet colorway - I love it.

Congrats to the boys! Were they playing EP? Puck's Coach's older son (he's a 7th grader) was in a Championship in his tournament this weekend (in Chaska). I always tell my boy that just making it to the championship makes them winners!
