I have also been conned into teaching a knitting class at the locale library on Monday nights from 6 to 7:30 pm. The first get together was this last Monday, everyone there knew a little bit about knitting and all I had to do was help out every so often, several of the ladies want to learn how to knit socks so I get to start them there. It should be fun.
Tony's job has been going great for him at Homestead Golf and Country Club. He has been booking lots of banquets and seems to be keeping himself busy.
Micheal has gotten a new job at Overhead Door. He has to take a drug test and get his driving record. He is happy, he feels like he is going to be part of the real world working Monday through Friday during the day instead of graveyard that he has been doing. He will have to learn to sleep at night instead of during the daylight hours.
Chris is doing his internship with No 1 Collision. He is sanding and doing prep work at the body shop and he is still at Wilson Motors painting and buffing bumpers. He seems to be enjoying it even if we don't see him at all.
Now for the knitting front.
I finally did finish my socks for round 3 of sock madness. Please for give the picture of the unfinished one but they are done I just have a few ends to weave in. I didn't make it into round 4 but I'm still happy with how far I got. I know that I can knit a pair of socks in 4 days if I have to.
I just got done knitting a test pattern for Anastasia and Kollage yarns. This pair of socks was knitted using Luscious Kollage yarns.
Ruth: I just make it work sometimes I don't cook and have Tony take me out to dinner or I don't clean the house. I have to have my knitting time. That is me time and we all need that.

Here is it with one sock done. Started it Tuesday after work, I got down to the heel didn't like, frogged, started it over, didn't like, frogged. Midnight gave up and went to bed. Wednesday started again at noon with the heel didn't like it again, by now I want to give up but I frogged and tried again. Googled garter short row and it helped and started over and it turned out I worked till 2 am and went to bed. Started today finished toe and began sock 2 I don't know if I like this pattern or not. I don't know about the garter stitch on the sole of the foot. Will work late tonight I want to get this sock done tomorrow. No one is home but me so no real distractions but myself, you'd think I could get lots done but I just can't concentrate. I have to work on Saturday and don't know when I will have time to work on it.
Well I have to get back to knitting my break is over. So keep those sticks a clickn. Bye.
Thanks Ruth: I need all the cheering on I can get this sock is not been easy for me. Going for the heel on the second sock at least I hope I don't have to rip it back.
