Ram Club Delivery!

I heard about the Ram Club on a blog a few months back and thought it was a great idea! A Sock Club for MEN! w00t! Enough yarn in each skein to make a pair of socks for a man! Imagine. Did you know that men have bigger feet than women? You can get some additional details by the Ram Club blog.

I have to post this SPOILER ALERT to those members who haven't received their shipment yet. If you are a member of the club and haven't gotten your shipment yet, GO AWAY.

Ram Club Spoiler

If you're not a member of the club or already have received your shipment or you don't care, view me opening the package.

The pattern is "Toe-up Work Socks With a Twist" created by StitchStud. Looks great and has lost of size options. Well done!

I'm sorry about the noise. The package crinkled (a lot) when I opened it. I'll correct this next time.

Tuesday Update, late

I took this video using my cell phone. The image isn't perfect but I wanted you to have a view of the lake.

The shawl work is going well. I've completed the 63 rows of the shawl, the lace section is finished! I have used one skein of the Malabrigo Lace Weight yarn. I've got two more skeins to go!

#1 starts her chemo on Tuesday. She'll go through 16 sessions of chemo.

I have an exciting week coming up at work! A big project is rolling out this week. I'll blog as part of my relaxation.

Friday Update

A simple update while I'm away "fishing" with my brothers. I'm having a great time!

Weekend knitting

I'm in Michigan as I write this spending time with my three brothers. This is our annual boy's fishing trip. I really enjoy the time together. We do things together and things separately. It's all good.

I've been knitting on the shawl for #1 but I'm not able to post any pictures. I left my MacBook at home with knitSB so he could connect to the internet while I'm gone. I have his laptop and desktop with me for my (amazingly kind) brother to do some work on them. They run slowly and he's able to help do the computer work. It looks like memory will help the laptop's speed increase. I also won't be able to vlog either because I don't have that capability without my MacBook.

You won't miss me will you. *grin*

I think I've done too many decrease rows on the shawl. I'm 4 sts off. I need to decide if I'm going to tink back or increase 4 sts. The malabrigo lace is quite nice to knit.
