It was so nice this afternoon that I spent a fair amount of time knitting on the blue socks.  I need to know the size to finish them.  Would you please contact me, Autumn?

Somebody Wants Free Socks

July 15, 2008

A got a nice comment today from someone who wants my socks and wants to trade a chihuahua sweater or a hat for my socks.  It sounds good to me.  Of course, I expect to see a picture of said items and a mention on her blog.  Then, I thought I should give you all more time to see if anything better comes along.  I am such a greedy bastard.  Ask my crazy ex-girlfriend.  But, I’m telling you, that chihuahua sweater is very tempting.  Maude wants to know what color it is.

Yester evening, we turned off the air and haven’t had to turn if back on yet.  It’s a little humid, but only in the 70’s so we are comfortable.  We are enjoying it while it lasts.  It rained off and on all morning so our walk was cut short.  I did get some work done on the quilt back.  I cut strips and sewed them together.   If I have some time tomorrow, I’ll cut the strips.

My son is coming on Wednesday and I promised to make a raisin walnut spice cake.  So, I may do that and make the frosting the next morning.  I usually only make it around Christmas.

Crabcakes and Free Socks

July 12, 2008

I picked crabs this afternoon.  They were not very cooperative and it took longer than usual.  I can’t decide whether to freeze it or eat it tomorrow.  Win is coming next Wednesday and I make the best crabcakes I have ever tasted.  It’s only natural.  I come from the original Maryland settlers. 

Jenn had brought them up yesterday afternoon.  They were leftovers from Tuesday.  She didn’t think they would be crabbing any more this week and wanted me to have some.  She said John was “in a mood” and needed an excuse to go for a ride.  Sometimes he gets a little one sided in his thinking.  My daughter thinks the way she wants to think, not the way someone wants her to think.  Guess where she gets that from.

I realized today that I was going to put an afterthought heel on these socks.  I don’t want to waste all that knitting time so I will continue on.  Maybe next time.   I am still not sure if I like this sock.  A light color wold have shown off the pattern better and the leg is a little too long.  Anybody want these socks?  Give me a good reason and I’ll finish them in your size.  I may even send them to you.  They feel wonderful!  But they are blue!
