Is it really Wednesday??

Time seems to be poking along and speeding by. I think it has to do with the children being home all day. I do know that I seem to hear more questions than any person should ever have to.

I got to watch a little bit of So You Think You Can Dance tonight. I DVR'd it so I'll be able to do things like fold clothes (boo) and work on my second sock (No one foot for our little cousin) while I watch the whole program.

Knitting -

I finished my first (baby) sock. Yea for me!! I would like you to look at my picture and critique the sock (not the mediocre photography). I need to know what you see - that if I did this ____ technique or pulled/didn't pull my thread tighter, it'll get better with practice -

I really would like to know what you think (praise is good, but constructive criticism is really good).

Also, I would like to know if anyone knows of a plain stockinette sock for my daughters (too big for baby, too small for women's small). I found a generic sock pattern here: and it looks good, but I was wondering.....?

I signed up for Emily's Dish Rag Tag at (soon I will learn to attach the button and link - if you can tell me in little words I would appreciate it - Emily already tried and I only sorta got it, obviously, as the buttons still don't work) and am so excited to participate. I can totally knit a dishrag in a somewhat speedy manner - socks, not so much with the speed.

Reading -

Yesterday morning, on my favorite SciFi book web site , I saw this book Beast Master's Quest. I was excited about it because I like stories with "intelligent" animals especially cats. I like Baen because you can "preview" all their books and they also have a free e-library. I read my preview and the library near me actually had the book and it was in - kismet. Unfortunately, this story turned out to be just ok for me. I'm not sure if it's because I didn't read the first two (which of course the library doesn't have), but the story just fell flat about 3/4 of the way through. If you like to read this genera, it wasn't bad, but if you don't enjoy reading don't check it out.

Family -

Ummmm.. Mimi, when can the children come to your house for the week??

That is precious! I really like the garter rib - sophisticated tiny sock you've made there!
