I got a Christmas card today. The best kind of Christmas card -- one with a check inside. The best thing of all is that it was from Kimball's, the ice cream stand where I worked this fall. There was a $25 check and a $25 gift card to Applebee's. $50 spent on me, by a place I don't even work at any more!! Think maybe they want me back in the spring?

So here I am, being a good little doobie and fondling but not buying sock yarn when I go to get yarn for gifts for other people, and whammo! Sock yarn, or the potential for sock yarn, falls right into my lap. Plus, I get to take my sweetie out to dinner. Life doesn't get much better than that.

Well, okay, it does. I have more money in my checking account than I thought. I owe the car insurance monsters less money than I thought. With the money I don't have to pay the car insurance monsters, I can pay the cell phone bill, and still have enough to pay the other monster who demands money of me.

Plus sock yarn.

Did I mention the sock yarn?

(Call me obsessed...)

Few weeks back I got some self-patterning Koigu (sp?). It's sublime. Don't know how to make socks though yet.

Socks are a lot easier than they look, and basic sock patterns abound on the net. Took me a little while to figure out how to pick up stitches, only to find out that there are a couple of methods, but once I got the gist of it, it was easy. I find I like knitting on DPNs, too, though you'd have to pay me a lot to convince me to use metal ones; they slip out of the stitches far too easily.

Dang it, we need to get together one of these years and sit down to knit! Wolfie has family in Phoenix...
