It was great to have the day off today! (Although I gave absolutely no thought to the Presidents, dead or otherwise)
I slept in, and then got up and started doing some laundry. I had wool socks to wash, as well as my other clothes and a load of sheets.
The dogs barked all day long, because this was going on outside our front door:
Yep, the gas company is digging up our street now. I don't know if this goes along with the pipes in the alley two blocks down from us that are dug out. They're making an incredible mess. The jackhammer is mounted on some kind of tractor or backhoe kind-of vehicle. And it banged all day long....
Here's the sock progress as of just after lunchtime today:
I knitted all day long and now have about 5" of leg completed on the 2nd sock. Yay! I'm at the point, as you probably guessed, that I just want to get these done. Its really pretty yarn, and I like the pattern, but I'm getting tired of these and am ready to move on to the pink socks. This is why I should never give in to second sock syndrome. I feel like I have to finish what I've started or I'll never return to it. OK then. Back to my knitting!
