The past month, in Tweets untweeted and statuses not updated:

– Going to Chicago, Yay!  Also, finally healthy with no cough.

– Back home from Chicago.  Hopefully we didn’t catch the vomiting bug that was going around.

– I’ve learned that you can use a credit card as an ice scraper at 2am, IF the temperature is 29° F and the ice on your windshield is fairly thin.

– Awesome, sump pump not pumping!  Ice in the outside piping.  Glad we caught it before the basement flooded.

So I’ve been knitting – boring knitting – but I’m at a point right now where I don’t want to have to look at a pattern.  Heck, I didn’t even put in a heel!


Just a standard, 1.5″ 2×2 ribbing, then stockinette down to the wedge toe.

I need to show you how much I knit during our vacation.


Wait, let me get closer.


Yes, that one row is all that I knit on our trip. I get too carsick to knit in the car – heck, I get too carsick to do anything but drive.

So yes, I’m doing an afterthought heel.  I just didn’t want the striping to change at the heel.  But no, I’m not so particular that I made the socks match exactly.  Go figure.
