Hi Deb, Thanks for your comment. I havent blogged in such a long time that I almost forgot it was still possible to get comments! This is a great sock pattern, and a free one. Its called Pomatomus and it was published several years ago at Knitty.com. Heres a link to the pattern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html If youve never made socks before, this might be a tough pattern to start with, but if youre comfortable knitting in the round, its a pleasantly challenging pattern. Good luck and have fun! Jen

Got both of our books at Third Place Books this past weekend. Both used, so I felt fine about not going the library route. Also got a book of essays called Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant. Will keep you posted on that one.

Jeez, those are some really big boots. That dog... I don't even know what to say about a dog that could--and would--bite you through those boots. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Well, at least you have those lovely hellebores. Thanks again for the party the other day. And the lunch and the transportation. And all the tea. I had such a lovely time! Your closet is going to turn out fine, I just know it.

That looks fantastic on you! Nice work! If I had a wild hair to close it up all the way down, I'd probably leave the top just as it is, sew interior snaps on the rest of the placket and attach buttons over the snaps so the closure looks uniform. Oh, except the buttons you've got there are shank buttons, right? Can you find some flat buttons that you like as much? Ooh, I'm just so proud of you!

Those patterns are both gorgeous! I've got a bunch of socks in my knitting queue this fall, as well as a cardigan, a lacy scarf and a dress (which I'm working on now). I don't have time to do anything but knit this fall. :)
Painting is like tht, isn't it? I was just going to do the kids' rooms and now I'm thinking every room needs to be a new color in order for me to be truly happy. Yeesh...
