Catch Up

First off in this post I'll catch up on a couple of things I don't think I ever posted. First was from early in the month, the Oldest One (navy jacket, playing the trumpet) marched in his first parade with the band. This was the Fire Prevention Parade.

Next up the Littlest One joined the rest of us and got glasses.

I caved to peer pressure and bought some sock yarn cuz I saw Redknitz made a pair, and I wanted a pair, too. Plain old 60st vanilla socks, heel over 30sts, toe to 20sts. I used 2.5mm needles, the yarn is Patons Kroy in brown rose marl, started October 15, finished the 24th, eye of partridge heel with 3 garter stitches on either side. Ravelry details here.

And lastly, this is the view I usually get now when I'm on the computer in the kitchen. The desk has become Nala's favorite spot to lay, and of course Pumba has to mooch in cuz she might get attention that he needs. She usually lays down, though, so I can see, after she's gotten head and chin scratches. They're going to be upset after Christmas when I get my new desk. The one I spied that I like is an armoir desk, so the doors will be shut so no one sees all my bookwork disaster area.

Happy knitting!
