The Odd Couple

I finished this pair of socks for me on Saturday. They were my travelling knitting last week, my secret knitting having gotten to a point where it was no longer convenient to schlepp around. Felix there, on the left is knit with an oddball Heather gave me because it reminded her of baby poop so she couldn't stand to have it in her stash. Oscar, on the right, includes some of a generic self-striper oddball left over from my first pair of Socks-in-Socks. I like these, though, and will wear them with my tan and chocolate skirts. Oscar's mess will be, as it was in the show, hidden behind closed doors in my shoe.

So then, instead of going back to my secret project for the finishing, I answered the siren song of new yarn and cast on for Sidelines from the lates IK. (Don't you love how the yarn matches the magazine cover?) The yarn is Comfort DK, and as I said to CQ today, it's knitting up into a nice comfy sweater. I'm hoping that this will come out to be wearable. Cross your fingers for me. In other news, I cam home on Friday to this:
A big hole in my street. That's our garage/driveway there on the left.

Here's a close up of the hole. I don't know if you can tell, but it's a good six inches deep, and almost as big as a car. I don't know what the issue was, but why would you dig a hole like this and then leave it all weekend?? Older Son was home and said there was nothing with the water on Friday. Whatever the issue, it was filled in when I got home today, but it's still quarantined off with the cones and barriers.

I guess knowing what is underneath the asphalt explains why the roads are so crappy... and speaking of crappy, that yarn still does nothing for me. I am so glad that you enjoy it!
