Flapping and feasting.

The socks. They have heel flaps.

I should be farther along on these socks, but I ran into technical difficulties. While knitting the first heel flap I was totally engrossed in an episode of Man Moment Machine. When the show ended, I looked at the heel flap and discovered that it was totally mucked up. I’m not quite sure what I did, but the stitch pattern was not what I thought I was knitting.

Friday’s are for feasting:

What does the color pink make you think of?

Name something you thought you had lost, but later found.
The green and white checked blanket that was on my bed while I was growing up. A few years after I left home, I asked my mother to send it to me. She couldn’t find it and we assumed it had been lost to the sands of time. A couple of years later, she came to visit me in Colorado and surprised me with the blanket. She had found it packed away in the basement and it was one of the best gifts I have ever received. The blanket is torn and tattered and I don’t even use it anymore because it’s in such horrible shape (one tug by a dog and it would be dust). However, I like knowing that it’s stowed safely away and there whenever I want to see it.

What kind of perfume or cologne do you like to wear?

This habit of hers can actually be quite adorable. It’s also maddening because I’m always stepping on dog kibble.

I took the girls with me today while I ran errands. They both love the car, so it was quite a treat for them. When we arrived home, Samantha tried to chew on her Nylabone, but immediately fell asleep:
