Even i hate to play all sport game, such as all ball kind: baseball, soccer and tennis. I dont know why, when i was little i didnt have any interest and talent ..you have to trust me!!!!!!

*Song of the Week

Song are you hearing :

"Two Stones in My Pocket" by Neil Halstead
album "Sleeping on Roads"

As the leader of early '90s shoegazer stalwarts Slowdive,
Neil Halstead was a respected and admired
figure in the U.K. rock scene soon after turning 20.
While that seminal band's brand of droning
atmospherics earned them critical adulation
and a cult fan base, as Halstead grew older
he found himself increasingly fascinated with the
English and American folk- and country-based
rock of the 1960s Read More>>>


"Two Stones in my Pocket"

Baby crossed an ocean just to see what she could see,
half the world beneath her feet, a rose between her teeth,
spent her lifetime loving, spent her lifetime living fine,
but since you broke her heart, yeah she needs a little time,
a little time, a little time.

Before we were old memories and I guessed that we’d be fine,
shooting stars still break her heart and sunsets make her cry,
watch the birds fly over head, you can catch them if you try,
watch the planes fly over head, you can catch them if you try,
if you try.

Two stones in my pocket girl, I keep them for my dreams,
I give ‘em both to you now cause you need them more than me,
your mothers arms will keep ya safe wherever you may be,
your mothers arms will keep ya safe however you may be,
you may be, you may be.

Baby crossed an ocean just to see what she could see,

a little time, a little time.

Two stones in my pocket girl, I keep them for my dreams,
I give ‘em both to you now cause you need them more than me,
your mothers arms will keep ya safe wherever you may be,
your mothers arms will keep ya safe however you may be,
you may be, you may be, you may be.

Injoy~~~~

You have become a sock afficianado within a week. You even think like a sock knitter LOL Save on shipping to buy a few skeins.
You really did your homework on tha patterns, and the yarn. Jaywalker is so popular that it has (or had, I'm not sute it's still on) a knit-along ring. I believe there's also one for the Trekking you bought. I have quite a few balls of the Regia you bought, and Knit Picks has some self-striping yarn too. You must add to your stash some Sock That Rock from Blue Moon!
