I'm smokin', now...

let's see, last night I got home a bit early, tossed food at the kidlets, then sat down at the CSM to see what I could do.

In about 45 minutes, I finished sock #1 (remember, I had done the heel decreases, but not the increase etc.), and did sock #2 to the toe (I didn't feel like messing with more decreases and increases at that point.)

I think I'm almost back in the groove! Sock #1 has quite a few...mistakes. No biggie - I'll wear 'em anyway, and it was a re-learning experience. Sock #2 - so far - is completly ERROR-FREE. Yee-Hah!

I've scrounged up some remnants from my socks, and will be cranking out some "make-do" tube socks for the kids. They're not wild about the color selection - these are fun yarns, but not BRIGHT, or radioactive. They'll get over it...

I also knocked out a dishtowel and got about 1/4 done with the next one. Note to Self: DO NOT buy mill-end yarns for warp. I am having breakage problems along both selvedges...and when I replace the threads with the new, direct from Webs' retail store yarn, the breaks stop. Grrrrrrrr. (I got the warp yarn from the "local" weaving store...it's definately a mill-end, and it ain't worth what I paid for it. :sigh: Live and learn, I guess.)

I've got another sock on the needles for daytime busy-work. It's handspun from some roving I got from The Woolery about - oh, call it 4 years ago. I *think* the roving is from Bonkers; I remember it's a sock blend, and it's all micro-fiber (no real stuff here, no siree!). The roving was predominatly RED; the yarn...is mostly heathery-purple-ish. Very interesting stuff...we'll see what the socks look like.

Himself is doing well in school - this week. Hopefully, that'll continue. Herself is probably on the Honor Roll..her grades have been *terrific*. (J - make her yarn really nice and bright, 'k? She deserves it! *g*)

Think that's it for the moment - we're pretty well battened down for the bad weather. Houston is...4 hours away (the way *I* drive), so the Hurricane isn't an issue..it's the tornados that will spin off of it that are the concern. Most of my neighbors are in mobile homes...yikes.

OH! I downloaded PhotoPlus, and now have new iconage! Whee! Now...to go scrounge up more pictures to transform!
