Suspicious Activity ?!?

I knew we had a problem when I came home and found some mysterious felting. I don't felt. I'm pretty sure my husband doesn't felt either....not intentionally. There have been a few minor laundry incidents, but I have banned him from the dryer.
This is what the photo evidence has turned over:

Those feet belong to hubby. He is an accomplice. If you are not a part of the solution........

Close up....

Hmmmmm. Don't let the cuteness fool you. He is sneaky.

On a not so criminal side note, I have completed Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks.
Yep, they rock!

I know it is sideways. Alcohol and cameras do not mix very well. I will try harder next time. I promise.
I have started another pair from the same book, New Pathway's For Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi.

Cedar Dancing Socks.

This is what I accomplished while watching America's Next Top Model.
Can you believe they bounced Claire?
Weird eh?
I'm off to go protect my knitting from the taste tester.
Have a good night everyone.

Some Yarn; Some Help; Some IPOD

I visited a new yarn store on my lunch hour this week at work. I was looking for some Addi Turbos that I have heard so much positive hype. While there, I found the sought after Addi's and some yarn:

I was very attracted to the colour. I am planning to use it for those socks for the Ravelry sock group, Jacobeans. You can never have enough socks, especially red ones. I am hoping to start them sometime this week.

Speaking of sock groups:
This is the yarn to be used on the third sock:

I love the wild colours. I can't wait to see how these stripe up.

I also began the second sock:

Those Addi's do sing. I can't believe how quickly I can clip along.

You know what else I learned? When you take them out of the packaging, they do not have that permanently rolled up look. They just unfold and are all ready to go. Those are my kind of circs!
I learned a new way to cast on. I am very stoked. :)))))

My creative assistant is ensuring that my that the second mate of my first sock does not fall by the wayside.

He is strict!

Hey! Check these out:

Cute little accessories for my ipod:

Who knew it would be so difficult to take a pic of such a tiny little object? You will have to trust me. They rock!
Is there anything that a skull cannot jazz up?
I don't think so.

Hubby and I finally completed Justice League Heroes for PS2:

I love RPG games, especially ones like this. It has a great plot. Reminds me so much of the cartoon I used to watch Saturday morning. I'm sure it is still on air. I just have a very difficult time waking up to watch them.

My creative assistant also has a little problem. He has an addiction to chewing wires. You would think this would teach me to put away my toys. I'm a slow learner.

He can do a lot of damage in a very short amount of time. Once we were without a phone for over a week. I never even realized. I just thought it was nice that no one was calling. It was almost peaceful. Then I checked the phone line. Yep. Chewy had struck again.

That is about it for now. I hope you are all well.
Have a great week end! :)
