Update!!!!!

The kilt hose are FINISHED. I finished them Monday afternoon - sorry for the radio silence, but I was a knitter on a mission. Pictures will be forthcoming - the hose are currently drying, and the house is mud-encrusted. :lol:

My next socks are started - Yaacov by Stephanie Van Der Linden. LOVE, love, LOVE these socks - and the pattern is easy. The yarn does all the work!

As a reward for finishing the hose, I bought a pattern -

As a reward for finishing the hose, I bought a pattern - <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/theseus-and-the-minotaur>Thesus and the Minotaur</a> I need to dye up the yarn for it....but they are COOL. (I like socks with themes.....these? I'll wear when we study Greek myths/architecture next year. Or wear to the Art Museum. Whatever.....:lol:)

Yesterday was take the aunt shopping day, and call the IRS day. :sigh: I was on HOLD for 2.5 hours....talked to *2* agents, and got told that I needed to call back to talk to the 1st department AGAIN. They have NO idea why the refund hasn't hit, why there is a problem....I think they were hacked. Seriously. I've tried 18 times this AM to get thru; I got thru at 7:45, and my phone DROPPED THE CALL :bangs head: Frustration isn't even.....:arrrrrrrrrgh:

Himself has requested a.....different type of History for next year. We're finishing up Modern World History; normally we'd cycle back to Ancients and go thru it again. He wants to do something on Historical Architecture. I've found a bunch of documentaries that fit, and The Teaching Company has some courses, so I'm going to try and set something up. Sounds fun!

More later - I really need to keep hitting the IRS line. :sigh:

<b>ETA:</b>. The Yaacov socks have been sent to the frog pond. The yarn is a singles, which will NOT last very long. Not on my feet, anyway. :sigh: I've ordered a sock blank so I can dye my own, and will start them again once that's done.
