I've gotten several questions about the color of the minivan. Here it is with the princess and prince installed on their thrones!

I always knew I was special

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Noble Excellency Becky the Infinite of Tempting St Mary
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Thanks again Phoebe ... this is fun!

And one for Lindy ....

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Noble Excellency Lindy the Subservient of Brompton Underfoot

I think the subservient part is a hoot! I just wish I knew who she was subservient to ...

Vacation in New York

I'm in NY with the kiddos and Mike is in South Korea. I wish he was here and so does he!! We talk frequently but I still miss him a lot.

I've been knitting up a storm while I've been here. I'm almost finished with a pair of socks for EMN and I'm halfway through my second clue for the Mystery Stole. I'm really enjoying both projects, but the stole especially. It's got several challenging aspects to it but overall it's a pleasure to work on. If I'm able to download pictures I'll post them.

Mike bought our new van on July 4th. He's hoping to be able to pick us up at the airport with it. I'm looking forward to driving it! We had such a good time peeking all through it when we were shopping and now it's all ours! I think the kids are going to love it too ... especially the DVD player.

There's always something else to chat about but I'm itching to knit more on my stole. I'd like to finish up the second clue so I can take a few days of break before the next clue comes out on Friday. Not to mention I will have very little time to knit once I'm back in Surprise.

Off to knit and tink.
