On to knitting news. I have finished the Sockotta socks and have knitted a pair of footie socks in Fortissima Colori Disco, colorway # 9052. I only had a 50 gm, and was very happy that I could finish them with some left over.
Here we have the Sockotta socks:
And, yes, those are flame jammies.
Here is the start of the first footie:
And here at the finished footies:
It's my first try with self stripe-ing yarn. Not too bad, if I do say so myself. And, yes, as Miss Amy so politely pointed out over my shoulder, I am that pale. I would have taken more pics of the progress, but these worked up quicker than I expected. But, being stuck on the couch for 2 nights with alternating ice packs and heating pads on my knee helped that. I apparently twisted my right knee Monday morning when I was getting down off the forklift. And, yes, I drive a forklift. So, this much knitting indicates that I haven't been packing, as someone (Conrad) else in the office so graciously pointed out, but in as much pain as I was in, who could blame me.
In non-knitting related pics, here is one of Annie:
We were playing with the Red Hat Society hats in Wally World, and she just looked too adorable. Who wouldn't take a pic of that cute little face.
Anyway, must pack tonight. Only 2 1/2 weeks left to do it in.
