Puerto Rico .. Here they come !

Yep I have proof... I finished them. It wasn't easy but they are done and ready to board a plane for the Isla del Encanto, mi Boriquen Hermosa... Puerto Rico.

The socks for Minnie's mami are done and I will be giving them to her tomorrow over dinner. Minnie and her siblings are going to Puerto Rico to celebrate their mothers' birthday. So we are going to dinner at a Rosa Mexicana here in the city as an early birthday dinner for me. Minnie and I like trying out new restaurants in the city, and I have been dying to go there.
I hope that her mom likes them and will wear them in good health for a long time.
Currently on my needles is a Lorna Laces bulky scarf. I had a hell of a time finding a pattern for this yarn. Its variated and bulky, so it had to be a simple pattern. I found a diagonial pattern in the Lion Brand - Just Scarves book. I like the way it looks and I want it long enough to wrap around a few times.
And since I don't have the time this weekend to go to Nancy's house to use her ball winder, I have to carefully ball up this hank tonight. I surely can knot up some warn rushing the balling up process. I think I might have to get a yarn winder soon, but then again I like going to Nancy's house and bothering her to do it....LOL Hey what are best friends for....

It looks like Nancy should require yarn as payment for her ball-winding services. :-)

Let me know how the Mexican restaurant is. I'm dying for some really good Mexican food.

When's your birthday?
