Goin' Camping!
This may be my last post for a few days. We're leaving next Wednesday on the BigYellowBike for a trip to New York state. We'll be meeting up there with a bunch of other GoldWing riders to do a little riding and camping.

We'll be gone for about a week, and will stop and visit friends on the way there and back. I am eager to get on the road! We're looking forward to seeing some familiar folk and meeting lots of new friends.

My sister will be here to take care of the dog and cats and to see that all is well on the home front. I have a lot of sorting and packing to do before we leave, beginning with choosing my knitting for the trip. I want to finish a pair of socks I'm working on (Online Supersocke) before we reach our destination. I hope it's not too windy to knit on the back of the bike!

If you're out and about and see the BigYellowBike pulling a camper with a teal-blue cover, that will most likely be us. Honk and wave! I'll see you when we get back.

If you've been reading here since the beginning, you've seen this picture, ca. 1983, of our son and me. In honor of Mother's Day I'm re-running it. Happy day to all who are (or have had) mothers.

It's a....
Little Thor(ina)'s parents had their ultrasound Monday. They are not ones who appreciate surprises (there's NEVER anything under their Christmas tree, because neither of them can stand to wait), and really, really wanted to find out if it's a boy or a girl. They were very hopeful that the baby would cooperate and show them.
The baby is doing beautifully: very active, has all the requisite limbs and digits, and is just the size for this time in the pregnancy.
I knitted two tiny socks, one pink and one blue. I gave them the appropriate color when we got the news... Guess what ? I still have this one:

In other knitting news, I've finished a test sock for The Book, made progress on the moebius, and started (twice) a tiny Aran sweater for the baby.
I bought some lovely Cascade 200 at the LYS the other day in dark red, navy, and tan for heavy, striped winter socks, as well as a skein of Meilenweitt self-patterning sock yarn in the same colors. I don't know...those colors just seemed to call my name!
