    the second sockAfter a slow start on Ugly Sock #2 on Thursday night, I am on the home stretch.  (My husband caught me knitting on Friday evening and snapped a picture when I was not looking.)  Since then, I have turned my heel and am now working on the gusset.  I cannot wait for these to be finished!  I already have my next two sock patterns picked out…plus my cocoon scarf…plus my red shawl (not yet seen here).  I made mistakes on both the scarf and the shawl and have to frog several rows of each.  I really should stop knitting late at night…or drink more coffee to keep myself awake. 

    Heather KnitsI have also been invited to a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Saturday, but I do not really have any hats except for the it’s-cold-and-snowing kind…and it reached 102 degrees here on Saturday.  I did not think that a winter hat would work with me being anything less than miserable, so I have decided to make this Flapper Cloche to wear.  Why buy or borrow a hat from someone else when I knit?  I only hope the hat is not too warm for summer.  Maybe I can knit it up in a cotton or bamboo, rather than wool.

    I also want to take this opportunity to wish Pink a happy birthday, she turns 19 today!
