The first pair of socks is finished!
They've actually been through the wash since that photo was taken, so they've bloomed nicely and are a bit fuzzy and sure to make a good impression. Now I've just got to make pair number two, but I am going to South Carolina next week to visit my grandparents for a few days, so I'll see what I can knock out then. I could have started pair number two at work last night, but I decided to do a little selfish knitting and cast on for a variation on the fir cone square shawl from Cheryl Oberle's Folk Shawls.
Not that I was able to do very much on that little project. Work was, well, very worklike and not very fun. Insomnia, a 15 hour shift, lots of very sick cases, and dogs who just will. not. stop. barking. make for a very bad combination. I was very happy to escape this morning and come home.
Because of work, I missed out for the second year in a row on the Kittery holiday parade. David spent about 7 hours the night before putting together his costume, and he marched along with Landlady Paula and the two yearling boys, Beach & Otis. He likened it to a Project Runway challenge, and I think it turned out rather well for costumery on a shoestring.
And now I have a date with Morpheus.
