Well, I finished my first toe up sock that I like that fits me. 🙂


Isn’t that sterling silver thread in the yarn fun?

Since I was already beyond the heel and onto the leg of the second sock, I’ll have it done in no time and be wearing them.


Here is how Cat Bordhi’s Sweet Tomato Heel fits.  I really like it.  Very smooth.  This is with 3 wedges, but she said we could do 4 if we wanted to.  I might try that just to see the difference in the fit.  This one fits well, but, well… curiosity always was one of my weaknesses.  Still, these socks will be a nice addition to my winter wardrobe since they are predicting a winter even colder than last year’s.

I have a busy week this week.  I begin teaching a beginning sock knitting class tonight, tomorrow night is the beginning spinning class, Wednesday night is a post office run to ship out several orders, Thursday night is mowing, Friday night I’ll go out to Sandy’s and put together more items to be shipped.  Saturday is another post office run, plus I am scheduled to meet with a woodworker about getting some hand-made spindles made for us, and, sometime this week I need to get laundry done and some cleaning done.  It’s a good thing I got all of the week’s cooking done before work today.

I wonder when I’ll get to read my new book?


And, no I didn’t color coordinate my bookmark with the book cover on purpose, but it was interesting that it worked out that way.  Seriously, it was the first one I grabbed out of the mug I store my bookmarks in.  Cool, eh?  I haven’t even started it yet, but I’ll let you know what I think of it when I am done.

Oh, yes! I found another Ellery Queen book for my collection that I didn’t have.  Woohoo!!!  They are very hard to find, and about the only place I can find them is an antique mall.  And for only $3 for a hardback, too!

I can’t wait for Sandy to get back from Alaska.  Trying to get the bare minimum of her job done and keep up with my own at the office is really not fun.  That and I want to see her pictures and hear all about her trip.
