Happiness abounds

Good news today! We finally found (and purchased) an entertainment center for the living room. I am so relieved and excited that this search is finally over. We were told that the delivery time is 6-8 weeks, but we are crossing our fingers that it does not take quite so long. I will absolutely post pictures when this wonder boy arrives!

On to some knitting news. Here is the partially completed square for the Lizard Ridge Afghan. I have almost completed one of the many squares that will be needed to complete this project. What I found amusing is that you knit from the inside and the outside of the ball, which is supposed to mix the variegation of the ball of yarn. Unfortunately, it seems that my ball had green on both ends with all of the other colors being in between... oh well, I am sure it will look beautiful none the less.

Below is the Noro handbag that I have been working on. I am done with the second panel, just need to bind off. Then I will start the strip that will connect the two side pieces together. You may see me carrying this around soon!

Finally, the sock. My lifes ambition all tied up in this one item... it is going to be ripped back and started over now that I have completed the class and learned most of the techniques needed. I am starting over because the ribbing at the top is too loose and there is a hole in the leg of the sock where, I don't know, I perhaps can't keep the stitches together. So, again the sock is to be no more and will, hopefully, start a new life as a much better constructed sock in its second life. Then I just have to knit a mate for it.

Gotta run... DH (dear husband for the one who asked) and I need to ready for the beer tasting party that we were invited to by one of his co-workers. We are bringing some Lambic beer from Belgium. Lots of fruit flavors, really delicious!
