Sock it to me!

Just when I thought I could slow down a little on the knitting and maybe work on that dissertation, I hear that it's almost Socktoberfest! How fun is that?

And, the Yarnery, one of my LYS, is having a knitalong! Sign up here . Even if you don't live in the Twin Cities, you can participate, although to win the cool prizes your finished socks would have to find their way to the Yarnery somehow. Let's keep the excitement from Sockapalooza going!

And finally, check out this first day of school picture:

Jurgen first day of school.jpg

Doesn't he look both cute and mature? Admittedly, he IS on the old end of kindergarten. Most parents of a summer birthday boy can appreciate the question of when to send their precious little boy to school. We decided to wait, and so far, I think it was a good decision. You can see the confidence on his face, for sure. And, it was J's idea to hold his backpack like that. How GQ of him!

And yes, he IS wearing a school uniform. He goes to Yinghua Academy a local public school that is Chinese (Mandarin) immersion. So far, he's loving it!

No way- J's all grown up! That's amazing!! Granted it's been awhile since I've seen him... but I'm speechless!

We are trying to fit a road trip your direction in the master calendar... right now we have a weekend booked with Peter's mom in town and then a crazy weekend of over lapping projects and midterms for me... so maybe towards the end of Oct?

And... does the craziness ever die down? I'm up to my ears already, and it's only week 6!

He is very handsome!!! Do they teach both speaking and writing Chinese at the school?

As for Socktoberfest, I want to see the finished socks at the end of the month. I hope you will get a lot of knitting time this month. Enjoy.

They do teach both speaking and writing Chinese at the school, although the writing part doesn't happen right away. They want to make sure kids have good fine motor control before they write Chinese characters.

I'm starting to feel Socktoberwhelmed! I hope I get them done (I've frogged them twice already!).

There are several ways to reside your bathroom bored and tired, without spending huge money. Along with elevated level of convenience, hygiene is also equally important here. A vanity device or washstand, for example, will hold the basin that will be plumbed into your mains drinking water supply and sewage system. This worked but it did not look great.
