Cross these off the "To Do" List!

So picture this... It's midnight, my eyelids weigh a ton apiece and I am working the kitchener stitch on the toe of my sister's birthday sock. Normally a recipe for disaster. I am stubbornly determined to finish this *%#@ sock before I go to sleep. My family is NOT happy with me. Hubby sulks off to the guest room to sleep. The dog thinks I'm fair game to hit up for the old "gotta go out" ploy. I have to be up in seven hours to get to work (and I am definitely an eight hours of sleep a night type of person). The tension mounts. Will this sock end up looking like it belongs on some grotesque genetic mutant foot? Drum roll, please...




They look good! YAY!!!! Now to get them in the mail to her before too much more time passes. And for my next act, it's on to Round Two of the nefarious Green Gable sweater. Hopefully, I will be able to make it the right size this time!

The socks came out beautiful! I have also been known to stay up late trying to finish something. I am usually pretty grumpy the next day though!
