Sunny days....

we need rain, but that's OK - we got a little bit yesterday. At least it's not 100+ any more!

Sock Report: Working my way up the leg. I have 31 rounds to go (or thereabouts) - I'm hoping to have it done by Friday so I can start #2. I'm taking extensive notes (and putting most of them on the Ravelry page for my Firebird) so that a) sock #2 will match and b) my Peacock version will go easily.

I have to hit the Post Office tomorrow - I have soap to ship out! (Thank you! You know who you are!!) I went today before I got the soap order - I had a box to pick up. I'm doing a little more work - surprisingly, the check was already at the Post Office! That was a nice blessing!

Not much else going on - I'm knitting my way thru holiday presents; after this pair of socks I have a cabled scarf for Himself, a pair of socks for SG, a knitted version of the Skyrim helmet for Herself (she's...an interesting kid, what can I say? :lol:), and a hat for Cyn. (Need to get the yarn for that one; she's not a hand-wash person, so it'll need to be machine washable. And PINK.) I'm hoping to plow thru these quickly so that I can play with the Van Gogh goes Bob Marley yarn. :rofl: - thanks Ali!

School is going well. We added "real" Math in this week, as well as started Mystery of History IV. It's nice to be back in the routine of "real" school! Himself is kinda irked - he's taking Trigonometry this year, and I'm making him actually WRITE the problems out *on paper*. He's gotten used to doing all the Math in his head.....but I know that Calculus is coming up, and he's going to *need* to be used to putting the pencil to paper. I need to dig out his slide rule, too - there's no reason he can't learn to use it alongside a scientific calculator. :grin:

Guess I really should sit and knit a bit. The socks won't knit themselves, after all!
