do the math

ok, so i had 4 inches monday, and i had 4 inches tuesday. i think it snowed one more inch after we left, so that's 9 inches all together. still not bad considering parts of western nebraska got upwards of 20". snow, indeed.

i am a lazy ass. i have no pics, and not much else. i've been doing buddy booties for a4a, with yarn that one of the ladies from ac4c sent me (apparently she likes making hats, but not booties, lol). this is for the midwife project they've got going on. i did use the alpaca in combination with some cascade quatro i'd ordered at the end of december to make another set, so i'm up to 3 full sets.

i am going to have to face up to it. i can't find the pomatomus pattern, and alison announced that there's 6 weeks to go. oops. time flies, eh? so, i'm going to have to print the damned thing up again, and get my little fandango in gear. can i knit 1 2/3 socks in 6 weeks, considering i'm not used to working on 1's? we'll have to see.

you might be a redneck if your city hall has wheels.
. . . putting yoru dog to sleep involves a warm bowl of milk and a bedtime story.
. . . you list tick removal as a skill on your resume.
. . . your city's name is misspelled on the side of both police cars.
. . . you can count the highway stripes through your floorboard.
. . . your truck has more lights than your house.
. . . your address is spray painted on your front door.

and i'll catch y'all on the flip side.

I working on a sock with #1s right now, too - just a plain k3p1 rib sock, so that the self striping shoes up to best advantage. You can absolutely do 1 and 2/3 socks in six weeks. Just set a specific time every day to working on the socks. Give yourself and hour before bed or something, everynight during American Idol, perhaps? Haha! I know, it's such a crappy show, but I can't stop watching, and I can't stop knitting on those teeny tiny toothpicks!

Dontcha just love the fabric #1s create?

I think you can, I think you can! I think, therefore you can.
