I am not dead

Sorry if it seemed that I would never post again. I was determined not to post until I had finished the second Sedona sock, well, little did I know it would take me this long to finish the doggone thing.

Finally!

I love them and I am not sure I can give them away! I may have to make another pair for my mom for Christmas because these really need to stay with me I think.


One more?


I have already cast on for another pair that I charted out earlier this week. Hopefully they will look good too. I get knitting and then an idea pops in my head, so I quickly try to get it on paper, but then I get distracted by 5 other ideas.....you can see why these took so long. I'm still putting the finishing touches on the pattern (another thing that takes forever!), but hopefully it will be available here at the blog soon.

In family news........

The Musical One had her senior pictures taken last week. We think they turned out really well. This green shirt really made her blue eyes pop (no colored contacts involved). Now we just have to decide which ones to choose (there are over 20 that we love), what prints to have made and where to get them done. Gah! Senior year is busy!

Lisa - your socks are wonderful! You can hardly be blamed for wanting to keep them and you should!

Keep them, that is :)

If your daughter is as musical as she is lovely, she's really got it all. I was thinking this morning how much fun it would be to go and see her in her school play :) Too bad we're so far apart!
