So Close!

This has been a busy and productive weekend. And look - I'm working on the last of the Christmas gifts I had decided to make at the end of last year, for family members this year! Actually, this picture is from Friday, and since then, I have finished this sock to where you start the toe, and am more than halfway through the foot of sock #2.


I am calling these Fly Eagles Fly! Socks, as they are in the team colors of the Philadelphia Eagles. They will be a gift for my niece Julie's husband, Keith, who is an Eagles fan. You may recall that earlier in the year, I made socks for two other nieces' husbands in the colors of the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens.* I'm pleased with how these are turning out, and hope to maybe finish them tonight - or tomorrow night at the latest!

By the way, look at these socks - cool, huh? I may have to give these a try sometime. Meaning, not any time soon, as there are other things I would like to get to first. But I'll file the pattern away, and someday be completely surprised to see it ...

I also got some little projects done/put away, and some things organized for the next few weeks. And believe it or not, I even cleaned! Yep, I got the third floor cleaned up and it looks pretty good, I have to say. Let's not try to guess - or remember - the last time I cleaned, OK? Everyone will be better off, trust me.

Others were worn out from the holiday long weekend:


You know how it is - when you are used to sleeping 22 hours a day, and you only get 20 hours in, it can be exhausting!

*Never, ever will you see me knitting socks - or anything - in the colors of the Dallas Cowboys. Just so you know.

Eagles socks...I'm not surprised--LOL! And I'm with Maureen...the kitty line-up on the sofa does look like a prelude to Christmas and the three wise men...hehehe...Poor babies...Holidays sure to tire out the pets, don't they?! ;o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

I see your couch is about as available to you as mine is to me.

(Is that a Christmas ticker you have on you side bar?! *gasp*!)

Bridget- Sleeping all day does tire you out- and sometimes you have to get up and visit the food dish.

So glad you managed to find the camera while their eyes were open!

Looks like everyone had too much turkey over the holiday :)

Your socks are looking good and you are finishing up so early ~ yeah! I love the pattern you linked too - very cute heels and toes.

Note to self: I.must.finish.monkey socks.

Should I assume we do not like the Dallas Cowboys chez Ravell'd Sleave? I am not a professional sports fan myself (except the Red Sox, I like the Red Sox), so I care not -- just asking. No particular reason. Just wondered.

I have no clue about football, so I'm hoping that your comment means that you do not actually have any Dallas Cowboys fans in your family, where knitting all these team socks for other teams only would cause a conflict?

That's the nice thing about cycling -- I don't think there are any teams anyone loathes, only individual riders.

Your cats are so funny -- I think they're just holding the couch hostage until you hand over more turkey leftovers.

I wouldn't know the Dallas colors if I fell over them but those socks are marvelous.

Poor kitties. It's awful when your sleep patterns are disrupted.

Truly, no Dallas socks here, either.
