I've been plugging along on my socks. I have two pair I'm progressing on and one pair on hold (sorry ML). The 1st pair is for me. The Perchance to knit-Pond II. I'm working on the foot of the second of the pair. The other pair is the new Swap partner version. This is going much better but I am concerned the colorway will be boring for my partner. I hope she'll enjoy them though. I think they're nice. I'm thinking of making a pair for myself also which is a suprise because I only have "Frank" socks right now.
And speaking of Frank color socks. ML went to the Loopy Ewe and is bringing home yarn. I can't wait to see the colors he chose. I am trying to get at least one pair of socks done so I can cast on with a new pair right away! I can't wait.

Well, I know ML would rather be home to eat with us than in that God for saken place he has to be. I love you, tons. I miss you too.

My brother says, "Oh, are you talking about the Sock cocks?" Honestly! That's what he thought they were called. I almost peed my pants. He's not just another pretty face you know.

This one macked on some girls......O- to be young.
This one did this.
At one point he actually asked where every one was. When I answered "swimming" he says "Oh- makes sense." DUH! Only the brightest can be so dumb.
The older boy child didn't stay with us now that he's a too cool adult but he did drive up to have dinner at the restaurant with his girl so that was nice. I didn't think to take a picture of him eating a mound of Zender's family style chicken dinner. I think we all had fun. Next time we'll go back to one of the bigger parks.

I made this hat over the holiday break just never got a photo of the cute girl child.
This is my sock. Perchance to Knit, Pond II. It's actually the third attempt. I changed needle size and then changed to the 2x2 rib. I think this is the winner.
Here is the Thelonious, Cookie A, in Louet Gems, Caribbean. It's size M on #1 needles.
ML's socks, Yarn Nerd, Math Nerd. They are going well, too.

Today is our wedding anniversary. Nothing exciting planned. We went to lunch with ML's Aunt and he's working all day and then going to class. So I'll spend tonight listening to whining kids and the other fun parts of every day life by myself.
I am working on socks for me in Perchance to Knit's "Pond II." They're on size 0's, 64 stitches, 2x2 ribbing.
I also have socks for My Love on the needles. Yarn Nerd's "Math Nerd" of course, size 0's, 68 stitches, 3x1 ribbing.
My big deal project is for my swap partner. It's a pattern from Cookie A. I have not done any of her pattern's before so I am finding it to be a nice challenge. I am a little worried that they won't fit my partner. I did a gauge swatch and checked her measurements but I won't know until she has them to try on. I hope the fit.
I haven't taken any photo's. I'll work on that tomorrow.

I started my next pair of socks on the way home from Ohio. I will be diligent on starting another pair tomorrow. One pair easily worked on with out much thought. One pair that will keep my mind busily thinking. SOCKS, SOCKS, SOCKS!!! I scream SOCKS! and giddily laugh. By the way, this is perfectly sane ranting. SOCKS! SOCKS! SOCKS! heheheheheh
