Sock Update ! ! !

Here's my toe-up KAL pair that involved D and I. Love the Opal yarn. I did the bind-off a bit frilly to top them off with a flair ! !
This wool/bamboo yarn was great to work with - and since my sox-knitting frenzy has been so far all for me, Me, ME I thought perhaps it was time to knit a pair for my DH. They're from Melissa Morgan-Oaks book [again, I love every pattern] and are The Classic Sock knit from the toe up.
Received a surprize package from my wonderful d-i-l this week. A treasure of wooden spools of thread. I can add them to my retro spool holder she gave me for Christmas.
Was without electricity yesterday [from 2:45 a.m. until 8:00 o'clock p.m.] after a tree brought down the power lines somewhere in the neighborhood during our rain/lightening/wind storm. In this past week Jeff City has received five inches of much needed rain. I'm sure all the trees, shrubs and lawns welcome every drop.
