The suspense ends...

Argh. So you see how it ends, 'eh? I was in the home stretch of the first pomatomus sock while on the way back from Chicago. I had 4 inches of yarn left and 12 rows to go when I was on the plane.

I thought maybe, just maybe, the sock might be a little too long, so I could rip back and make it with the yarn I had. But you can see what happen when I got home and tried it on.

Luckily, when I went to look for yarn to finish out with, I happened to find some leftovers from socks I made for my friend Julie last year, and lo and behold -- the greys match!!!

So I finished it off and you really can't tell unless you really know to look. Whew.

Now sock 2 is through the 1st lace repeat, and I have until July 5 to get it finished up in time to get it in to the state fair.

And yes, that is totally my gross roller derby gear airing out in the background of that pick.

Technical Difficulties


So, the photo host that I've been using for several years locks your account rather than reverting it to free when you let your paid membership lapse. This does not make me happy and is the reason why this place looks like crap right now.

I'm in the process of switching over to flickr anyways and setting up a pro account over there, so I will get it fixed as soon as I can. I may have to pay them to retrieve some of those photos. Again, not making me happy.

Please bear with me and my lack of time.
