Sock Wars 4

sam made it safely to thailand saturday-ish. he called us sunday. it was great to hear his voice.
we took the van in to be fixed last week and as of today i am still car-less. :0(
if they cant make it work and smog i will be home way more often. being home gave me time for:

sockwars!

sock wars 4 began friday as i was on my way to sonora. they released 3 patterns so i couldn't just have it read or text to me as originally planned. luckily a motel 6 by the quick subway stop had a free wifi i could tap into and i was ablr to download the 3 patterns.
by the time i was home sunday, i had just a few rows on the toe left, but then had to ripp back to the first instep cable and start over.
now sock#1 is done again. however yogaknot
is gunning for me!
celtic memory having fairy magic directly inserted into the fiber has served me well and sock#1 is done! highly recommend jo's lovely yarn!

Sock Wars IV

early this morning a crisp envelope arrived with the dossier of the one i am to kill with a pair of socks.
after some investigating, i discovered a colourful yet uppity burro in the state of connecticut.



as long as the pattern arrives early on the 15th, i should be good to go! (when i leave for a weekend in sonora...great knitting time) my team mates have my cell just incase the pattern needs to be text to me.

working furiously on the mother's day shawl...obviously not done for mother's day.
:0) but its 80% there.

hubby leaves for thailand on thursday, so i will need books and knitting to keep me company. the kids and i picked out some new stories to read aloud while daddy is gone. "the last of the really great whangdoodles" and the looking glass wars plus a time travel book and a mysterious adventure.
