Got socks?

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I was actually not feeling well, so I sat in front of the computer and read blogs. It was nice to give myself permission to do that, even if it did take a headache and a bit of nausea to make it happen. (Plus, it was a fun party) So I'm feeling pretty caught up on the blogs, and just for fun (??) I counted how many sites on my blog roll I would need to read to be completely caught up - 51!!!!! Yikes! Time to roll up my sleeves and get to work. I love me a sense of completion.

Speaking of a sense of completion, I really have to share this photo. It's from at least a month ago, and I should have posted it before now, but here 'tis. I walked into my mom's house, and apparently it was sock washing day. She washes her socks when she's worn every single handknit pair but one, and so has to wash for more. Look at all these socks!!!! And that's not even all of them. We had to take three pictures to capture all of the socks hung around her house. Too cool.


They look even better when they're strung all over her balcony drying in the air, like a more recent incident, but the batteries were dead in the camera, darn it. But how cool is this? I have six pair of handknit socks, and really felt my feet were well covered. Knitting isn't a competition, but I do feel free now to knit extra socks and just enjoy having them. It would definitely make for less sock washing days, too. Go, Mom!

And a bunny update: Mr. Testosterone came out for a bit yesterday morning. I gave him toys to play with, and brushed him verrrry little.


He liked the toys, but got pissed off when I brushed him. *sigh* Like I needed another kid...

Oh, he's VERY cute. Even if he is a little brat about being brushed.

Darn cute little bunny. We have too many fights about hair (hare, lol) brushing in my house.

Too bad about the hat. Is it off to the frog pond?

Love all your mom's socks! I need more. Mine are all wearing out!!

And Happy Thanksgiving. Hope it turns out great!!

That bunny looks like a toy, he's so fluffy! Hope you're feeling better, but it's great to give yourself permission to just SIT & do whatever you enjoy. Good for you. And look at all those great socks--they're like umpteen pairs of handcrafted love.
