My pal is better than your pal!

First of all, thank you so so so much to my secret pal! You are spoiling me already! I took pictures, but Hokiehubby has the good laptop that makes pictures easy to upload. Let me just tell you that I have been properly spoiled. I can't decide what gift is my favorite! You'll just have to wait until I can post the pictures to find out!

OTN: Central Park Hoodie. I started this guy on the first of the month. I'm so excited, as this is my first sweater! It's speeding along; I'm on the armholes on back. Of course, the size 10 needles probably help, and the fact that I'm really enjoying the yarn (Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.) I was a little nervous about Knit Picks yarn, as I haven't enjoyed the sock yarn I've tried. This stuff feels good to work with.

Catching up on SP12 questions:
In many communities, "the fair" is a great place to visit and spendtime with your family. It's also where many have entered one productor another (jams, cakes, even knitting)...Have you ever entered your knitting (or anything else) in the fair?Would you ever consider it?

=I don't even know where there is a fair nearby. I've never entered a fair, but I might some day! When my husband's aunt saw my MS3, she suggested that I sell it. How do you sell something like that??? I worked so hard on it for months. It was my first lace, and it's full of mistakes. I'm very attached to it. Of course, my mother in law told me that she is going to be incredibly excited to open her Christmas present this year.

What is your favorite supper for a hot summer evening? For added flavor, post a photo or recipe link.

=I don't know that I have a favorite supper. If things are really rough around here and I don't want to cook, I would be happy with a bowl of cereal and maybe ice cream after the kiddos go to sleep. Hokiehubby and Hokiettes don't aways go for that. So they get hot dogs and mac and cheese. My latest experiment is once a month cooking. Now there is always something in the freezer that has minimal prep: thaw and heat and eat!

My MOPS year has begun. We had our first steering meeting yesterday and it went well. I'm still nervous about being Coordinator, but I know it will be fine in the end.

More later, when I can post pictures!

There is a state fair in Virginia. I think it only gets a close as Richmond.
