Sock woes may affect your DNA.

Things were progressing so well on the Sugar-Free Socks, and then, disaster: Somehow one of the two circulars that I'm using pulled out of it's snug little row. I love this Heirloom for it's springi-ness, but as soon as that needle was gone, whamm-o, so were the stitches. Running away, down row after row, looking for the party at the toes, I guess. This is a woeful situation.

So, I did the only thing I could: gathered up the ones that I could, and stuck the whole thing in "time-out" until further notice. I just can't face fixing it right now.

This might not have been the best time to take an internet test. But I did it anyway, so here's what my personal DNA looks like:

It took about 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire, and it was interesting. Not sure if the answers would be the same the second time around, when the sock will be hopefully back to its former glory. We shall see.

Things are hoppin'

Wow! I've been so crazy busy! I've had a great time in the last little march of days:
Started to learn a new thing: socks!
Went to Powell's for a brush with greatness - look for me about halfway down the post in my lovely coral sweater
Saw Harry in concert - be still my heart!
Watched a lovely young woman (and many, many of her closest friends and homies) graduate from high school - pictures will follow
Had an as always great massage in my friend's yurt - call her if your back is complaining, and remember to ask for a "corkscrew"

So, I'm actually looking forward to some down-time to get some knitting done. Hope it happens. I will keep you posted.
