Still Alive!
I am a very bad blogger. Here are a few pictures from the past month or so.
Michelle and Robby
Our friend Michelle has told her two teenaged daughters, "NO babies for a very long time!"
We let her play with Robby to help stave off the anticipation of holding her own grandchildren.

A newly-finished pair of socks, of my own design. I call it "No-Count Cables" because you don't have to count the rounds between the cable twists. The yarn is Meilenweit.

Dude and Grandpa
The kids bought Robby some sunglasses, and he loves to wear them. He is very cool and serious when he has them on, and doesn't play with them at all.
"What are YOU lookin' at?"

Lots going on this past month. I am finally back to work full-time, after being laid off and working three part-time jobs since November.

I've finished three designs for Friendly Socks, Book III, and just need to finish writing up the patterns so I can send them off to Laura.

I tested some needles and yarn for Crystal Palace ...mmmmm....bambooooo....
We're planning a short trip in a few days to meet up with some of our motorcycle forum friends in Tennessee.

Yesterday at work I had a wonderful visit from Sheila Winney of Ohio, who will complete a one-year odyssey this week. She has been attempting to break the record for most miles ridden by one woman on one motorcycle in one year. Two major wrecks, a lot of foul weather, and 125,000+ miles later, she will be done on Thursday, April 19th, after which she and her husband will celebrate with a much-deserved vacation and cruise. Sheila and I have been chatting on-line for over a year, but this was the first time we've met in person. It was a great pleasure to finally meet her. She is a lovely, strong, and impressive woman of great humor and she nearly twinkles when she speaks. She took some pictures, and I will post them here when I get them.
