Give me liberty... or something...

I'm so sorry that I haven't posted recently, but life's gotten in the way. (Well, it's actually work that's gotten in the way, but that's par for the course this time of year.) In any case, here's a quick update on the weekend...

I spent the weekend with Jim (my significant other) at a Rev War reenactment in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Beautiful weather and a really fun event. Jim finally got to wear the Liberty Cap (also called a voyageur hat or a toque) that I made it for him from a Smoke and Fire pattern. It's almost finished--I just have to stitch the words "Unite or Die" on it. (Liberty caps sometimes had phrases stitched or painted on them, and he thinks that it would have been funny to have a man wear the cap in bed with his wife with the words "unite or die" on his cap--hint, hint. Yeah, my guy's a regular comedian.) Here he is wearing his almost-finished cap to bed Saturday night. Cute, huh?


Here's a picture of Jim's sock watching the British get their butts kicked.



And here's one more picture of from the battle, just because...

I managed to get quite a bit done on this second sock this weekend and my gussets are looking much better. I'm tempted to frog the first sock back to just before the heel flap and redo it so that it looks better, but I'll make that decision once I finish this one.

Well, I think it's time to call it a night. Got another crochet class tomorrow night (class #2 of 4). I'll have to fill you in on this crochet class/course in my next posting. (It's been an experience, I tell ya.) Good night all!

Oh, just one more thing--I'm sooooooooo jealous that Carole got to go on a big shopping trip with Norma at Kaleidoscope Yarns in Essex Junction. (Just look at the stash in those pictures!) But then this is the continuation of Carole's big birthday celebration, so it's all good! You go girl!!!
