I did get up at 4 a.m. this morning but not to shop with the throngs on "Black Friday", the biggest shopping day of the year in the U.S.
I got up to let our two beagle puppies outside. As looney toons as this sounds, I don't mind waking up that early. In fact, very early is my favorite time of day.
Besides, who can resist a face like this?
This is Jack snuggling the Alpha Male after dinner yesterday.
Or how about this face?
This is Molly and a friend.
I'd much rather hang out with Jack and Molly than stand in line at BestBuy.
Yesterday after Thanksgiving dinner, I settled in to begin Gentleman Socks.
What a fun knit! I learned the Right Twist, achieved by k2tog without slipping the stitches off the left needle, then knitting the first stitch on the left and sliding off both. It looks really nice in Socks That Rock "Rooster Rock". Very quickly, the pattern becomes second nature.
This pair will be Christmas socks for Tom. He keeps saying things like, "You know, I really like those socks you knitted for me. So comfortable. Do you think I could get another pair?"
I think he could get several pair, that's what I think.
