Weekend Fun

While I can't say that my weekend was relaxing, there are quite a few items to report!

We finally broke down and bought a new truck:

This is the new Nissan Frontier 4 door. Notice that Anna has decided that the back of the truck is really fun to play in! My husband's old truck had reached its limits--no ac, no windshield wipers, no real brakes. Plus, it didn't have a back seat to put a car seat in, which made us rely exclusively on my Honda CRV. I'm very pleased with the truck--now it just has to last at least 10 years!

I also finished the back of Ginger. She's blocking and will be sewn up during the week.

And I did make a little detour to our LYS. I picked up a sock booklet (Socks! The next step) and a really pretty self patterning yarn from opal. This is Chameleon from the Opal Rain Forest Collection--see the opal site for how it works up. I'm still on a quest for the perfect sock...
