Here is my first Holiday Knits Sox Exchange sock. I am really happy w/it because I never
would have picked this color scheme (Sock Garden "Rocky Moutain Dusk") for myself but I like it. Last week I felt overwhelmed. Between this socks project and the pair for my mother for Christmas, I didn’t think I would ever get through it. But now that this first sock is finished and I am close to completing my mother’s pair, I am feeling better. When I finish my mother’s second sock I will start on my father’s scarf.
Yesterday I washed and blocked my cousins’ scarves. The red one is really scratchy so I am wondering whether I should make another one. It only took like 2 nights to finish so it won’t be a big deal. Hmmmm, decisions.
I have a new prospect, Chris, from craigslist. We are going to meet tomorrow night at one of the three Starbucks in Dupont Circle. (Are three Starbucks w/in a mile of each other really necessary?) We had a great phone conversation last night. And he is buying property in Belize. What a small world! Got to keep this one around.
And of course Charles is still lingering. (the whole thing has rendered me speechless. I am sitting here with just nothing to say.)
