One sock down March 31, 2004

One Trekking sock down and one to go. I am not thrilled with this sock. First, it was a bit more difficult for me to convert the pattern from dpn’s to two circulars. Somehow, the markers got screwed up and the alignment of the heel decreases and the toe decreases were off. I was much better at the kitchner stitch this time. But I pulled it a little too tight at the end. I didn’t mean to—just somehow did. Then I was pulling the yarn too tight and it looked like it might break…so there is a little excess that I just ran through the toe. I can’t wait to get the second sock off the needles and be done with these. I really want to get back to Na Craga and finish the final pattern on the sleeves and start the saddle. The end is really in sight. Yippee!

Here is Cameron modeling his sock. He is home sick today—nothing horrendous—just a low grade fever yesterday. I strictly adhere to that 24 hour fever rule. I have to go to the dentist today so my mom is coming over to watch him while I have my filling replaced. Fun, huh?


We, or I should say, Kevin had Cameron’s meeting yesterday with the school. For the most part, I think we got what we wanted. I had called the meeting and, at the same time, asked for a copy of NY’s rules and regulations on special education. We also forewarned them that we would be taping the meeting. I think all of this worked in our favor. I couldn’t make the meeting itself as I was the parent member that day for everyone else’s meetings and they were close to 2 hours behind. I had to leave to get Owen off the bus. It was just as well. I tend to get a bit emotional and can say the wrong thing. Kevin is great. Thanks Kevin. 🙂

I have been working on squares for the Afghans for Afghans along. I bought a cone of yarn from Paradise Fibers that looked really good on my computer screen but didn’t look quite as good in person. It weighs a million pounds so I am just going to use it for charity projects. I am using other stash yarn as well. It makes for a nice in between project.

I will end with a picture from the dinner dance. Actually, two pictures.


Wanna see the scary one?

    Yep, cute pic of a cute couple. I like the scary one, though; it looks like you are looking up to heaven for guidance. Or maybe just to Kevin’s eyebrows. Hope Cameron’s healthy today.

    Very nice photos! I’m just starting to swatch the PF and it looks like I’m getting 3-3/4 per inch on 8’s–is that close enough?
