Down the street on a sunny fall day

Grilltech's slightly off birthday socks. I messed up on the cabling, so I did it the same on both socks.

Close up of the XO cable pattern

Sock yarn that I must have gotten in a swap or as a gift, because it's not my usual color choice. I'll be using it making me a pair of socks.

Uggy making sure I'm taking pictures of the socks correctly.

My finished socks, I knit them two at a time, which turned out to be okay.


I'm not sure I won at knitting bingo or not, but I might have been close. In the span of one and a half hours I heard the following:
  • Three wish I could knit, but it's to fiddly for me.
  • Two You knit? I crochet!
  • One I've never seen two (socks) at a time before. My friend uses four needles to knit her socks.
  • And a those are ugly, to which I said nothing and just kept knitting.
  • I was also tagged with a photo last night and got the if I buy the yarn, will you make it for me?
I've heard of all these things being said to people, but I didn't expect it to happen to me in such a small window of time.

World Ending

I have a friend who is convinced the world is going to change sometime in late September. I'm pretty sure everything is going to stay the same. Color me unimpressed. World has gone on for at least four billion years and I'm sure it will stay even longer. Why am I talking about this?

Because he was right, the world ended today. Facebook is down.

How will the world continue? Is there any point of going on?

Finished my socks

Started a pair of socks for Grilltech


I did something to my back. It needs to be better quickly.

Friday At Last!

Yesterday was a day. A couple days ago, I cracked a filling. I was able to get an appointment with the dentist yesterday. Turns out I needed a crown. I knew that was going to happen, but part of me held out for something less. I was in at 1500 and out by 1640 with a crown in place. Fifteen years ago, that procedure would have been three trips with a two week break. So I'm glad its done and over with, but the pocketbook wasn't happy.

I meant to get a picture of the sock in progress, but I didn't. I finished the heel flap, I was about half way done, and now I'm about mostly done with the in-step. Overall, it was good chunk of knitting.

Tonight, Grilltech and I are off to a food truck rally at the Idaho Botanical Garden. It will be the first time I've ever been there. We're going to meet up with some friends, walk around the gardens then eat. It should be a good time.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.
