Finished Sock

I finished the first sock. Pattern is Kaywinnit by Glenna C. Yarn is Socks That Rock lightweight in I Love What You’re Wearing.


I am about to start another Glenna C. pattern, Viper Pilots, for a Yule gift. Which means that the second sock for this pair may not happen until January. October 1 starts the gift knitting and the only thing I am allowing myself is the September Rockin Sock Club kit when it arrives next week. Hopefully it will be that cool.

Otherwise I guess I will finish these. Not a bad prospect.


Bird Tree

There is a hierarchy in our house. Mark is of course “Tall Bird” and he is in charge. Bogart is only 4 bu he has been in the household longer than Loretto so he gets the shoulder. Loretto may be 58 years old but he has only been with us for a few months so he gets the arm. He wants so badly to have the other shoulder but that is not a good idea. Sometimes he gets the shoulder when he is on his own.

Having these boys in my life is an adventure every day. I can’t remember life without a loud green thing in the corner.


Shopping Sunday

Spent the day with a dear friend. We had salads at J. Alexander’s and then hit the mall. Julie is my shopping genius. I think everybody needs that friend who will tell you when an outfit doesn’t work and then help you fix it.

Had some ugly weather after I got home but the tornadowind was really all that was bad. Supposedly it was “really bad” on our street but we missed out. Not sad.

Turned the heel on the sock tonight. Still dubious about this one and am giving it 60/40 odds it will get ripped out. The top seems big. I followed the pattern but it is not really well written in my opinion.


Some Birds

Bogart wants to hang out on my foot.


Loretto just watches the room.


Current Sock

Current sock. Hope to get a lot more done this weekend.



My birthday present was an iPad and it is easier to me to work at WordPress from my iPad than blogger. So here we are. I hope to post more often now!
