This Could Be a Sign You've Eaten Too Much Birthday Cake

There I was, snarfing down the last of the birthday cake when I got some icing on my hand. I was going to lick it off when I saw this:

Older Son's birthday went well.
I presented him with his socks on his birthday morning, which he wore immediately. We took him out to dinner on Friday. Saturday we went to a movie and lunch, then had cake and ice cream with my dad.
Older Son is getting set to blow out his candles. Yeah, there's a cake and a big cookie there. OS doesn't like cake (No one who knows me and my predilection for cake can believe this. I think it was when Dave dropped him on his head when he was a baby.) Yesterday we finally got around to giving him his gift and he asked "Where are we going out to celebrate my birthday today?" Yeah, it's not just a birthday, it's a week-long birthday extravaganza around here.

On to the knitting content. By stint of carrying it with me virtually everywhere and knitting on it almost all the time, I have gotten this far on my first Jaywalker sock. I also finished the first of the cotton socks (not pictured) which fits me and which I really like.
And finally, I won a contest over at Steel City Knitter's and got this fabulous sock yarn. I love the colors. Although I'm tempted by more Socks in Socks, I'm thinking I'll use this yarn to make Pomatomus. I've been wanting to make it for a long time, but didn't have the perfect yarn. This yarn reminds me of tropical water and the pattern makes me think of ripples on water. A perfect match, I'd say. Thanks again, SCK!!

A frosting frownie I love it! Also loving your Jaywalkers. Yours are the second ones I have seen in that colorway. I also have that colorway, and just might have to follow the trend and make some for me. Pamotamus socks are awesome. I have been planning another pair for me forever, but I am kinda stuck on knitting some of my "summer" sock yarns.
