B-b-b-b-braided

Dsc08316_1I'm in love, love, love!  It's the crappiest picture ever taken of a sock-in-progress -- it's almost grotesque -- and yet, you can see how the braid pops and isn't it a lovely sock?  ; )  I got in some good knitting time last night, some of it even out-of-doors and in public, and I'm past the point at which I decided to rip.  There is no more than an inch to go before work on the cuff is finished.

Oh, the weekend...  I need to work on Fib.  I have two Road to Indigo vests that were taking a break, but now I'm ready to have at them again.  There's this beautiful sock.  And a moebiusDarn it, RachaelDarn it, Ann!!  Darn it, magical, mysterious Cat Bordhi!!!

Dsc08285I was so tickled by the art on the bathroom wall in the ladies' room at the coffee shop where we had lunch on Wednesday that I took a picture.  If it was Alan Alda in Clint Eastwood's spot, this would very nearly replicate the pin-ups on my filing cabinet at work 25 years ago or so.  Clint's okay, he can stay; I guess it just means that I like my men just a little less... hm... rugged.  Yeah.

Go say, "HEY," to Amy Lu and wish her a Happy Blogiversary!  She gave herself a brand new Typepad account to celebrate, so update your links and rolls!

The roasted cherry tomatoes turned out wonderfully!  Roasted Tomato Sauce will be the next recipe I try.  Thanks, V.!

The socks are absolutely fabulous! You are the cable queen!

Oooh - it would be hard to take a grotesque picture of such a beautiful sock.

Vicki,

Please mention to all your friends, Yellowdog has a RSVP for the Harlot. Trying to get a firm handle on how many people to expect!

Ah, Miss Vicki, I am so envious of the incredible talent that flows from your brain through your hands. I adore cables and yet creating anything more than a simple one eludes me still (although I keep trying and will one day prevail.) You are the highest inspiration!

Blessings~

love the color on the bathroom wall.

ps. I would have pegged you as someone who likes a rugged exterior.

The socks looks fab -- I have that pattern too -- bought it last summer. Hmmm. . . . .

That's just like bulldigger Ann to skip over the pinups and go straight to wall color. ;-)

The sock looks very nice indeed! Glad you're loving it so much.

And Alan Alda? My god girl! Might as well put Phil Donahue up there!

The sock is beautiful. I like the pic you took - the shadowing shows off the cables well.

Vicki, I read your blog every single day - it's one of the handful I never miss. Yet I never pop in to tell you so. Bad reader, bad!

Lovely socks!
