DS was delivered back to college last night. When we were about 5 miles from campus, I heard his voice change and his demeanor alter - he was becoming a snotty college student. Good thing he keeps that at school. When he leaves, that little hole comes back. I am profoundly sad and miss him so much.
and moved on to greater things - my sock pal socks were started last night! I am really liking the contast of the bright koigu and the matte black Celestial Yarn. The pattern calls for knitting quaker rib horizontally, doing a 3-needles bindoff at the seam, then picking up stitches for the foot. Very interesting and very fun! The question for this week is whether or not I will take the plunge and make these socks fraternal - the second sock would be a quaker rib the reverse of number one with the ribbing continuing all the way down to the back of the heel. My sock pal wears clogs all the time so the different backs might be cool. Stay tuned
I haven't talked matching pets here lately. They went to visit their other favorite family while we were on vacation and came back full of mischief. They had "tussle time" yesterday and I managed to grab an action shot that proves that Grace the Cat always wins - Emma the dog falls for this same shit every time.
I have finally conviced my B and SIL to start a blog. They live in Paris, have no kids and have a life the rest of us can only dream about. You can check them out here
