I seem to really like orangey sock yarns. I don't wear a lot of orange. I do have a polar fleece sweater in a dark orangey color that I wear mostly when I have to change mini lab chemicals. Most of the chemicals leave orangey-colored stains, this way you can't tell. But in looking at my stash, I see I do seem to like orange socks at least. I have Socks That Rock in Sunstone. The indoor picture is closer to the true color, I think.

So on the left is Socks That Rock in Sunstone, then Fred Flintstone. The middle is a coraly-orangey hand-dyed merino off eBay. (That one is unfortunately hand-wash, I believe.) On the right is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Bittersweet that I bought ages ago for my first pair of Jaywalkers.

And I almost forgot about my Cherry Tree Hill Fall Foliage. (So hard to get a good picture of this one. Dreading the final socks photos. Cloudy outdoor day will most likely be best.)

I did finish a pair of red felted slippers. A non-knitter already got me to make one pair for her mother. This pair she wanted for herself. They are a ladies' large in Patons Classic Wool in Bright Red.

I figured out my accounting problems when I got home Friday night. I had some of the numbers posted on the wrong sides on my entry for the adjustment to the Meals/Lunchbox Expense. That was a simple fix. I was very thankful that the accountant called. When I looked up the payments on the Pete that were in question I noticed a major mistake on my part. Somehow, and I don't know how I did it, I forgot to enter the deposit made on the Pete when we bought it! I had the tax posted cuz that was a separate cheque. Anyways, without that it would mean paying tax on $12,000 more than he should have. I doubt I would ever have found it til 2009. I enter each year's payments in my accounting program in January. The last payment is in October/09, so when I entered 2009's payments I would have had $12,000 left showing as owing when it should have been zero.
This child falls asleep in the weirdest positions. The cat seemed to enjoy it. He didn't have much choice by the looks of it. (Sorry about the sun. My blinds were closed but still didn't keep it all out.)

Happy knitting!

Ooooh, I reeeeeally like Sunstone! Why haven't I bought that one yet??

Those pictures are PRECIOUS! I love that the cat enjoys a good bear-hug....not many cats will sleep comfortably in full-on hug mode. More than anything, though, I love that in the last picture, they have the same face!! Too funny! Kids + cats = happy sleep-smiles.

Yummy! You know how much I adore orange, and looking at the beauty of these skeins really made my heart jump! Can't wait to see the socks you're going to make with that goodness!
I *so* love the pics of your little one sleeping, what a sweetheart he is - but how in all the world can these sleeping positions be relaxing? ;) Ahhh... to be a kid again!

Awww.. those might just be the cutest photos ever. I can't believe the cat will cuddle. My cat won't even come near my 4 year old.
