Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

An F.O. and Some Randomness

An attempt at photographing the socks resulted in the wild man jumping in front of the camera yelling "cheeseburger"! Doesn't he look like a little mad scientist with all that hair sticking up? He's such a ham!

This is what I was trying to do! The finished Ridged Feather Lace Socks...such a joy to knit and even more so to wear! I L-O-V-E this yarn! It's my new favorite sock yarn. Thin enough to knit a nicely weighted sock without it having the bulkiness of worsted weight yet not so thin my fingers feel fumbly when I handle it. It is Cherry Tree Hill's Supersock DK Select. 100% superwash merino with a high twist. A hank is 360 yds at 4 oz. The colorway is Caribou Creek and this photo is pretty darned close to the true colors! At nearly $20 a hank, it is a tad on the expensive side yet one hank will net a pair of women's large socks and have enough left over for a pair of child's socks or some simple fingerless gloves. Despite the cost, I will definitely be purchasing this yarn again! Maybe in a nice variegated green?

Some randomness about me:

1. I'm a "fag-hag" or so I've been told! If you have to ask, well then, look it up.
2. I love chocolate and cheese...together. I also love homemade mac-n-cheese smothered in ketchup. And, I love to dunk sharp cheddar cheese into applesauce for snacking. LOL!
3. I have two tattoos and my eyebrow is pierced.
4. I dream of living in Ireland and owning my own pub.
5. I'm seriously uncomfortable around any child other than my own. Like kid-phobic or something. Probably why I didn't have kids earlier in life. And why you'll never see me running my own day care *snicker*!
6. I'm a sci/fi geek - I love all things gaming, movies, tv, etc that are sci/fi or futuristic or even have a hint of fantasy in them. BSG is the best show on TV and the first of the last ten episodes was quite possibly the best TV I have EVER EVER seen. Simply brilliant acting, directing, and writing.
7. I have over 2,500 books in my personal library and have read thousands more.
8. I love wine.
9. I research the hell out of something I don't know until I have more knowledge about it than anyone cares to hear of. It makes me very dangerous!
10. My husband still turns me on after 18 yrs and I love having wild monkey sex with him! TMI - I know, I know!

Well, on that note, I think I'll sign off for now! Ha ha ha!

Stay safe and happy knitting!
