That's the Rogers City Public library. It's actually one of the bigger small town libraries I've seen around here. I haven't been in any of them, but just looked from the outside! Hey Kristin, if you see this, print of a picture for Jenni, I know how she has her collection of library pictures!
Jenni is a librarian at my old library, I took that picture for her!

Why a picture of libraries? Because I can't find the charger for my camera! GASP! I must find it before Stitch n' Pitch - which I'm going to this Sunday. Go Tigers! I know, they are blowing it this year, but I am not a fair weather fan, not as long as Placido Palanco, greatest second baseman ever, is still on our team! I love him! He's my Tiger. But nowhere, can I find a shirt with his name on it. It's all about Sheffield, Verlander, and Pudge, who now isn't even a Tiger anymore, what's up with that?

Anyway, I'm kind of boring in the knitting department right now. I cast on three different times with the same yarn for three different pairs of socks. Nothing looked right. Well, the Uptown Boot Socks from Favorite Socks looked nice, but about halfway through the leg I decided to try them on . . . and couldn't get them over my foot! :( Frogged.

Still knitting squares. In fact, that's going to be my Ravelympics project, squares. Good tv watching. Although honestly, I probably won't be watching the Olympics. There is too much good reality tv on! Anyway - I have to do squares because apparently one of the people in my Afghan a long flaked out on us. He says he didn't, that he mailed his squares a long time ago, but no one has seen them so . . . I'm knitting squares. They should make good Tiger game knitting too.

Or, the Lion Brand Sock-Ease socks, plain stockinette that I cast on. The yarn leaves something to be desired fiber wise, but the colorway is rocker. It's pukey green mixed with tiny stripes of purple brown and orange. Really it sounds gross, but it's tres cute. As soon as I find the doggone camera charger I'll show you! Wish me luck!

I will keep my eye out for a Palanco shirt for you! I've been searching for a plain orange Tigers shirts to stencil our own names on and all I'm finding are players shirts...I'm sure to find your man!

Not in time for Sunday, but I will find him for you!
