One down, one to go.


Man, those are some BIG socks. I finished one, and it's too big for Jim. I hope that my recipient (I mean 'target') has a hubby with big feet, or these socks are going into the dumpster. Come on.. 72 stitches? On a 2.75mm needle???? I'll be 'dead' long before the second sock is done, I'm quite sure.

Today we went to the HWSD fiber sale at Old's college. I was hoping to find a fleece or two, but no such luck. What I got was a whole crapload of silk from Treenway Silk, 2 - 600 yd skeins of softly spun alpaca and 3 bags of fiber. I came away quite happy.

Afterwards we went geocaching; logged 7 finds today (which is a pretty darned good afternoon, if I do say so).

And tomorrow's Mother's day. I'm talking poached egg, home made card, I'll probably see Dida and Nini, Survivor finale kind of Mother's day. If I finished the second sock, it'd be completely overwhelming. Honestly.
