Sunday is for Socks

Project: Old Navy by 1870 Pearl
Yarn: Trekking Pro Natura
Needles: US 1 dpns

Notes: I modified these slightly to make them larger. They fit a US Men's Size 11 foot. I think the pattern is quite clever and keeps the knitter's interest long enough to finish. I do enjoy giving socks to friends who appreciate them, but men's socks take ever so much longer to knit than mine! These are for my neighbor who didn't get socks from me last year and was genuinely disappointed. These should make up last year's omission.

Whoa! What Happened Here?

Yes, I was away and all the readers ran for more interesting grounds. I do apologize. I won't be posting every day, but I will improve.

Work has reared its ugly head, horns and all. For now, we have a sky on Saturday, but I think it was actually a Tuesday Sky. Young Man and I have been getting up extra early these days. He is now a member of the Early Birds crowd at school. That would be the kids who get dropped off before 7:45 a.m. The target is to drop him off by 7:10, but we have yet to meet that goal. I now have standing 7:30 meetings and I'm always late. I have been regularly arriving in time for the standing 8:00 meetings. I also was just issued a Crackberry. Life has become very strange.

C'mon back tomorrow and I'll have finished socks. I promise!

Feeding Frenzy

Today was a day spent feeding things. Today I fed Young Man, the tortoises, the washer and dryer (four times each), the vacuum cleaner, and the bread machine. It was nasty hot and the air was thick, so it was a good day to stay inside and deal with the stuff that piles up during the week. That means that this sky shot was not from today. Today had no clouds, but the sky wasn't remotely close to blue. This one from a week ago is far more interesting.

Another First

Off he goes to Middle School. Sixth Grade, watch out!
Yes, that is a tie. No, it wasn't our idea. Some of the mom's have an unofficial pool going to guess how long it will last and how many of the ties will end up in the Lost 'n Found.
