Usually, in the morning, I get up, grab the coffee and turn on the computer. It's pretty much automatic. Then I spend the next half hour snarling and complaining that I can't read one paragraph without someone asking me a question, and for goodness sake, people, I'm just *trying to wake up*! This morning my computer connection was down, and I picked up a sock I was trying to finish up. We had such a nicer morning! So blog reading will be saved for when I'm already awake, and I'm going to let the calm stitches of a sock ease me into my day... Here's a picture of KnitPicks Redwood sock yarn, 100% merino wool, that I wound this morning. My husband and I had a nice convo while he unwound from the skein, and I rolled it into a ball. See how I'm trying to perfect the ball winder look? I have a long way to go, but it's better than my first efforts! HeeHee.
I just came back from chaperoning a Girl Scout trip this weekend. We went to the zoo, McD's, a children's museum, saw Shrek 3, played Stiff as a Board, Light as a Feather (where you get the kids to lift each other up with just their fingers), and pulled innocent little pranks on other kids in different rooms. Sweet! I missed the Truth-or-Dare game, and I guess it was all about boys and who liked whom. Dangit. I could go back to those days.... much fun, wasn't it? High school? Not so much. Just before high school? Very fun. Besides, I've been wanting to weasel this information out of my daughter for some time now.
Here's the new Sockotta socks. Pictures have too much flash, but hey, it's early.
