Flat Feet

Darcy over at Darcy’s Knotty Knitter is having a comment contest for Flat Feet Yarn. This is the yarn that inspired my girlfriend and I to dye the Knit Picks sock blanks! Remember these?

July 6th

So July 6th was our 7th Wedding Anniversary. 🙂 We’re trying to follow the “traditional” wedding gifts to each other and this year was copper or wool. DH got me a lovely copper bird feeder (I was really hoping he’d just get me an miniature sheep but I guess that really wouldn’t have been feasible…).

The Chicken Legs liked it too!

This is what I made for him:

I thought wool, copper, hmmm… he doesn’t like the “yarny” things….wool, copper… What more appropriate than a copper sheep? Off to the hardware store for a bit of copper pipe and copper wire, a little time and a couple of shrinky dinks and voila! And it seems proper that I used knitting needles to create the “wool”! 🙂

This year for our anniversary we just puttered around the house, we usually try to get away somewhere, whether it’s a trip to Philadelphia or just camping up north. We did go out and try a Mini-Golf course that we hadn’t been to before. The Chicken Legs were excited, they had never been to a putt-putt.

This putt-putt’s theme was Pirates, and they had 2 courses you could go on. They had a lot of flash in decorating, but not a lot on the greens. There was one cool hole that had a water hazard. You could aim straight down the course but if you were off your ball would bounce into the stream that flowed into a tunnel and then rapidly downhill. It was $1 a lost ball so needless to say, DH bounced it off the rock and as he’s hurrying down to see if he might be able to get it, the ball pops out onto the green!

The Chicken Legs didn’t come anywhere close to winning but they had fun learning!
