Allyson's socks

My friend Allyson's birthday is next week and these are for her fresh of the needles and blocking, as you can tell. I have to say that with this particular color way of Zauberball Crazy there doesn’t seem to be a way to get a pair of socks out of one skein that look even remotely alike.

My new favorite passtime

It all started last October during the World Series between the Cardinals and the Rangers. Ralf and I were in San Maguel, Mexico and made sure we were back at the condo every day by game time. It was huge fun listening to the announcers in Spanish and watchnng our team win - we're both native Saint Louisans so you can guess which team that was. Suddenly I was hooked. It was as if some latent straight gene suddenly kicked in, well some strange mutant straight gene because I have to be knitting while watching.

Finally got to wear my vest and...

It's been done for month and this is the first day that it's been cool enough to wear an alpaca vest. I have to say though, I thought I looked OK when I stepped out of the house this morning. White button down, nifty tie, brown dress slacks, brown and OD tweed jacket and of course my nutmeg colored vest not so freshly off the needles. Ralf said I looked cute - but he always says that.
