Off Day

Ah, the sock. What is there to say about this most perfect of creations? I heart it, even after having to tink back two rounds. Lost a yo in there somewhere, but I have it all back to better, now.


Today was haircut day for the Becher chirruns. Here, Madeleine is sporting her first eyebrow wax, along with a fresh pixie-cut... oh, and the "Vampire Red" chunks. Also, there appears to be a rabid weasel behind her...


but it's just one of the dwarves. Group photos never go very well, which is why I don't spend a fortune of professional photography. From l to r, back to front, we have Snarky, Squinty, Sweetie, Squirrely, and Withering Stare. We had quite a day, but more about that tomorrow.

Everyone looks tidy... Way to go Maddy!- love the eyebrows and the color. She looks happy, but will she scoff at doing the eyebrow wax again - it's a little painful - introduction to womanhood.
Always, Rob

How DO you do it? And do you hate when people ask you that?

You kids are so cute! I know what you mean about group photos. We have never tried to go and get any taken because it would be like unleashing a bunch of monkey's at the zoo! I love the vampire red streaks. But you already knew that didn't you? :)

Cami...I love those socks...
Can you believe that after a year, I am still working on my pair? I know, I know. I never get around to getting to knitting nights. It's awful.
I saw the pair Rhonda did for Melly on her blog and I am reinspired to keep knitting.
HOWEVER...
I got up to the ribbing, messed it up and the only thing I know how to do is frog and I'm way too far along for that.
I'm hoping to make it down to your shop in the next couple of weeks (perhaps I'll wait until my sis gets in town at the end of the month...she's a knitter, too) and I'm hoping you will help me "unknit" my mess a little ways. I know, I know...I've been planning to come to your shop since the day it opened and haven't made it down there yet. I will -- and with cake!
See you soon.
