More Socks!

I finished Moom’s xmas socks on whatever day I last posted a photo of them. Foolishly, I forgot to give them to her when she was here today. At least I have now successfully applied for a passport…

Moom’s Socks

I have since started another sock, out of some of the German sock yarn that I acquired last spring.

Sock up to heel…

I have also done a small bit of work on my sleeves. Note the *small* bit. The roughness of the wool and the tight stitch gauge were starting to make my wrist hurt, so I put them aside temporarily. I intend to go back to them…oh…tonight or tomorrow.

Classes are…going. As always. I have a lot of work, and very little time to post. I am filling out my study abroad application. I. am. not. sleeping. I am pretending that I know how to direct.

I am acquiring something that makes me giggle:

Don’t get me wrong.  I think yarn deserves incredible amounts of respect. Really, really. Let me just give you a closer look at the lable…

80% god?? This has got to be good. =D

I hope everyone has a little bit of god in their life today, whether it be woollen “god” (like me), or your God of religious practice. If you have neither, have some good instead. =D

    My little bit of heaven after the multiple fire drills of the last couple days involves:

    1) Getting those photos done so quickly at Walgreen’s.
    2) That saintly woman at the post office that decided to go ahead and process your application even though we weren’t withing the specified times for passport processing: 10AM-12PM or 2PM-5PM.

    Speaking of fire drills, when I *left* for kzoo this morning, three fire trucks pulled up down the street in the 700 block of Carbeck. I was waved the other direction. Wonder what that was all about…
