Don't fall over!

Don't faint either. I have another FO! I finished mom's Monkey socks! I tried them on for her. They should fit her great (because they're too small for me).

My my, she has some little feet. Size 6 1/2 or 7. Nowdays, that is small. Around our area the average foot size for women is between an 8 1/2 and a 10. I think people are getting bigger. Maybe it's the hormones in our food or something. The Sporty One is only going into 10th grade and she already has a couple of girls in her class that are over 6 feet tall. No kidding! 6 feet! That is huge compared to when I was in high school. Oh sorry, did I get off track there?

I picked up the wretched pink sweater this weekend. I didn't finish it. I am not happy with the first sleeve, and now I messed up on the 2nd sleeve too. Somedays I think I subconsciously sabotage my own FO's. I guess I will have to take both sleeves out and start them over. I know I will not wear it if I don't make it look better than this. Just slap me. I need to get together with my friend Sal. I need a push, a hard push I think, and she will force me to finish it. She is a brat like that (just kidding Sal, you know I love ya to pieces).

I started another pair of socks, but I don't have a pic yet.

I have joined Mystery Stole 3. I have my yarn, but still need my beads. (Don't say a word!)

I am dying to start something new. I will try to resist.

Brodie got a new toy.

He is not sharing.

The socks look very cool - and don't worry about the sweater...it will happen in its own time.

Brodie looks very...erm...possessive with his new toy :) What a face.....

I have sisters-in-law who have claimed 5'12" and 5'13". The socks and that scarf are gorgeous, meantime!
