Mommy liked them, and I got them done in time! (it was hairy there for a while!)
I like my socks simple. I do a lot of streetcar knitting, and TV knitting, and I like to be able to do both. These lacy socks were a good choice- they were very easy to memorize.
Currently, I'm working on Spring Forwards from Knitty, also in Tanis (which is a dream to knit with) and have started a fair-isle yoked pullover of my own design featuring bunnies (!)

Early Morning

Dave goes for a jog every morning. This morning, when he woke up, I was still awake. He asked if I wanted to go with him, and I agreed, but we went for a walk, not a jog.

The beach is beautiful in the morning, there's no one around.

It's almost 9am now, and i'm starting to get tired. I don't know if I'll go to sleep, or just suck it up and wait till tonight, to try and reset my sleep cycle- i've been going to bed later and later every night.

missing from this photo - thankfully is one billion dogs without leashes running around and generally being annoying. Dogs off leash in the off leash park RIGHT NEARBY = fine by me. dogs of leash here - where it's NOT an off leash area = a pain in the ass. Well, only badly trained dogs i guess.

Hello Blogger

at 3:56 AM
Hmm. I think i will switch over here from LJ. So much is better. LJ has begun all kinds of evil things, like forced ads in the blogs, it's so annoying. Plus, I can't customize, and have cool headers, and stuff on the side, like my tweets, and links, and fun stuff like that. 

So, I'm going to move over here, see how I like it. 

For reference, my old blog is here
