Just makin friends...

I had a nice evening tonight. A couple of summer's ago we had about 5 empty houses on my they are all full. It's really nice because my neighbor directly next door is very friendly and talky in a funny sorta way. She's fun to listen too. Anyway, she came over and started talking then her son's girlfriend came over, then another neighbor came over and we were all talking and laughing. The best part was that the neighbor that was really new and that I was sorta being shy towards came over and I got to know her and her husband and vice versa. I was really glad to hear that she is quitting smoking being that she is pregnant. It was nice and now I won't be so shy around the was like a girl's night out on my porch.
Okay, enough of that chit chat....I did want to show you the yarn I got when I went to that yarn store and the dpn's.
I thought the yarn was a little expensive. I'm going to look for just the right sock pattern for them that's easy so I can start them after I finish the pair for my swap partner. Also, a few weeks ago, I ordered this book from Amazon.

I found it on Amazon one day and thought it would be a good reference book. It has alot of stitches in it that's for sure. Any of you have this one? Let me know what you think if you do.
Well, that's it for tonight. Didn't get alot done this evening....but sometimes just making friends is worth the clothes waiting another day to be put away. Till tomorrow....tootles!
