The sun will come out tomorrow

Bet your bottom dollar
that tomorrow
There'll be sun!

Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!

When I'm stuck with a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!

So, here is to a best friend that always seems to know when I need a pick me up phone call, email or piece of cake.

Thank you!

New yarn

Finally, I got the yarn photos ready for you. These are the Ellyn Cooper yarns I bought in Mystic.

Aquatide, Strazzbery, Blue Hydrangea (both Canasta and Lace):
I think it is so neat to see how the different types of yarn take the same dyes.

I've already caked the Strazzberry and going to cast off on a Funky Sock Monkey! Doesn't every knitter's home need a monkey?

a mental health day. This day for myself could not have come at a better time. I needed a decompress day.

I chilled out, however I did head to the local store at mid-day and bought myself a pair of these. I really wanted orange (coral) color, however they didn't have any of my pick-me-up-color. So, I came home with navy.

I then lost myself in the afternoon to Ravelry. Are you surprised? I'm not.

I am off to finish the rest of my relation day.

Could it be an actual photo from our vacation? Could it be that I've actually figured out the camera?
This was the view from our hotel room. The view is of the Mystic River.

Here is our original 'Mystic Pizza':This is one view that I would never tire of:And finally, since I didn't take a picture of Mystic River Yarn store, I'll leave you with a photo of the bead store. The store was huge! I scored some beautiful beads that I'll show you later.

Still working on it...

that would be how to make web ready photos from our new camera. It can't be as difficult as I'm making it, I mean come on my nickname at work is "computer geek". They call me when they have computer troubles, so why in the world is this hanging me up??

One word: time. I haven't had the time to full ready the manual and software. So...for the time being this is a picture-less blog.

I'm still working on my Cascade Fixation Summer Socks. I got the heels turned, gussets are complete and I'm working on the decreases on the foot sides. WOO HOO! These are going so fast I love it!

I've also completed three new necklaces. I've worn two of them at work and received many compliments on them. One is a top drilled peacock pearl necklace. I made it only 16 1/2 inches so it lies flat yet up close to the neck area. The other is a lepidolite stone in a teardrop shape. I used crimps to hold it and put a few crystals in a complementary color on each side, however I used crimps to hold them in place. It looks like a delicate piece since I do not have beads all around the wire, however I know it will stand up to most anything. I love the look of it. The last one is light green pearls with off white pearls, very simple and will go well with a green shirt I have.

Our neighbors have officially moved. It is just so sad. They are ultimately moving down south however, they didn't expect their house to sell so quickly (within a week of going on the market!) they are moving into an apartment a town over. I miss them already!

I also got in my 3rd Rockin Sock Club Yarn. This month's colorway is The Incredible Shrinking Violet. It is many different colors of purple and is my favorite so far.

Well that is about all the happenings around here. I promise pictures of all the above next time with the vacation photos I promised last blog post!
