I have been remiss

One leisure sock finished, the other past the heel and headed toward the cuff. Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Navy Olive. Pattern: baby cable rib from Sensational Knitted Socks (link in sidebar). The yarn was donated by Claudia to Socks for Soldiers, and has been passed out to SFS members to be made into leisure socks for soldiers.

This charming little bag was created by MzMar, who has other bags for sale here.

It has been raining here for 3 days. Makes it hard to get motivated to do much. That, and sleep deprivation -- I'm about ready to curl up under a blanket and nap. I've been up way too late the past couple of nights.

I won the prize drawing at Six Sox Knitalong, for the August/September sock. My prize arrived yesterday, from Australia. Thank you, Sandra in Sunny Queensland!

Persistence finally rewarded -- I lost count of the number of times I attempted to load these photos, but I have triumphed over the balky Blogger once again.

Thank you so much for your confidence in my chart reading abilities. Congrats on the win. I won a contest a while ago and was thrilled to death.
