Sooo, the laptop has a virus that has decided to not let us on the internet the past few days. I have broken through. Don't you dare lose the connection before I post this post, laptop!

Some kook is on the telly trying to sell me a juicer. Looks like pondwater, but I suppose this is what I get for blogging at one in the morning.

Anyhoo.

These are Natalie's socks! And her huge rottweiler. I swear I had a picture that didn't make it look like she's all floaty (which I don't necessarily think is a negative), but Blogger kept putting it in sideways.

Gah.

I'm really exicted about these socks, though. Made with one skein of
Knitpicks Memories and the Corded Rib pattern out of Sensational Knitted Socks. And I have a ton of yarn left over. Probably one and one third skeins. Granted, Natalie does have tiny feet, but still.

I have now made a pair of real socks!

And, yeah, those are the socks drying out on the dash of the car on the way over. Don't knock it til you've tried it, baby.

One fifteen makes me kind of loopy, apparently. I've just become terribly amused that Jack La Lane (he of the pond water juicer) is married to Elaine La Lane.

The stole is coming along quite nicely; on Saturday I had done one repeat and was totally not seeing how what I was knitting was going to turn into that beautiful shawl, so I went down to Yarntopia to see if they could either reaffirm me or point me in the right direction. As a testament to how nice these ladies are, hear ye this: I got there almost an hour after they closed, but Sheryl was still there, so she let me in to pester her. Thanks, Sheryl!

I was back today, because my head decided I needed more of the Fleece Artist sock yarn, to make a
Clapotis. And I am not going to say no to that. I got one more skein in the colorway Vintage to go with the one I have already, and a skein in Paris to make socks with.

Even though there's more I want to post, I'm a gonna go to bed. Theoretically, I'm going to the gym first thing in the morning.

Hi, Cherry Blossom!

I don't mind at all. I find it funny that you can tell that's a Scion (but then I thought about it, and realized that if I saw that picture on someone else's blog, I'd be like "hey -- that's a Scion!"). To Drive an xA is to love one!

Now I'm off to check out your blog.
