Here Comes the Sun?

I am really getting tired of rainy, dreary and might I add muggy, weather. These darned hurricanes need to STOP! I shouldn't be complaining--yet I am--since my home and location haven't been in the path of any of these storms. I still need some sunshine before I go stark raving mad!

Here I am impatiently waiting for my Twinkletoes. Maybe it will come today. The mailman rang the doorbell yesterday, but all there was to deliver was a giant box of some sort of roving for husband. No fun there. The UPS guy stopped later in the day and got me all excited, but all he had was a delivery for me from work. YUCK! I want my sock yarn. I have absolutely no patience when it comes to waiting for good things like yarn!

Last night brought real progress with that darned Making Waves sock. I finished off the cuff, the heel flap, and turned the heel. I started picking up the gusset stitches during a conference call today but didn't get too far. I would like to finish this sock tonight. The new pattern is ready for the KAL, and I'd really like to start when everyone else does for a change. So far, only the toddler and child size patterns are up, and I want to make the adult size. October 1 is the official start date, so maybe I can squeeze in some Christmas knitting in the interim.

We have a quiet weekend planned, and with the weather the way it is, that's a good thing. School tells us that daughter's field trip is back on for this coming Monday through Wednesday. This is the camping and kayak trip. Somehow, I just don't think that's going to happen. We are to check the school web site tomorrow for an update and final decision. If it were up to me, I'd say don't go until later in the fall when hurricane season is over! I hate that the kids are getting their hopes up only to be disappointed.
