So, here it is Sunday already, and what did I get accomplished this weekend?? Did I clean like I told myself I was going to do? Of course not!! A a couple of loads of laundry this afternoon, and that was about it into my ventures of housecleaning.

What I did accomplish was the first part of my very first sock. Now, realize that I have tried this before and failed. I've never gotten so far as past the ribbing for the cuff.

Here's my SAL:

As usual, my picture isn't very good. But, there are cables down the back of heel flap, which is what this is. When I came home from church, I finished this, turned the heel, and now I'm working on the instep of this sock, which also has a cable design. I can hardly believe that I've come this far on this sock!!

I'm almost finished both of my KAL's. I have the instructions for both of them to be finished today, but I put them aside in favor of working on this sock.

And, here's a picture of my little kitty, Miles. Remember, Miles??

He's very hard to take a picture of because he's always on the move. I just happened to catch him waking up from a nap! He is a very actice kitty, but he learned early on that yarn is not a playtoy!

I just received a weather bulletin that we're going to have severe thunderstorms. I can't wait!! I love a good thunderstom. All that power unleashed--reminds me of the fact that God is in power and He is the one in control, not me. No, not me--never. And what happens when I try to control things--that is when they begin to come unraveled!!

K-that's all for a while!

Talk to you tomorrow!

I am itching to make a pair of socks, maybe now that I feel better I can give it a try again.

I LOVE thunderstorms too

I neer in a million years thought I would get as far as I did on this pair of socks. I've never gone beyond the ribbing. I'm up to the instep now. I'm so psyched about this!!

I'm glad you're feeling better.

In my prayers, for this time and situation in your life and always,
