The comings and goings of socks

Monday, March 13th, 2006

This picture is a bit dated by now, but here’s an early shot of the second sock in the black Duet. I’ve already started turning the heel on it now. Yes, I know, I said last week that it would be done by Friday, but I got distracted. These things happen. Some other . . […]

Not feeling so nice today

Friday, March 10th, 2006

I’ve got a lot of thoughts swirling around in my head today. I still haven’t sorted them out. Something happened this morning that is making me feel ashamed of myself. I expect I’ll be wrestling with this for a while. I was awakend this morning at about 6:00 by a sound. I didn’t know what […]
