More socks

Not only did I finish Su's RR yesterday - I finished these socks , late last night. They are the embossed leaves socks again , but this time in a pale green Regia.

I am up early this morning- for a Sunday ,as it is the first Formula One Sunday of the year and the race is in Australia . I did not get up at 4 am like we used to do. When the kids were smaller and Michael was home , the kids would crawl in bed with us and we would all watch together. This morning I am watching the repeat- by myself. I got up at 8 for the pre-race show and ironed shirts while watching it, and am now watching the race, but it's just not the same by myself. I think I'll go cast on a new pair of socks!

If you missed the "Help" post, please do go read it. Thanks.

Sounds like a sock-knitting day to me. I've pulled out a UFO and am happily making progress on that. Hooray!

You haven't gotten too many book suggestions. I'll wander upstairs and take a look at our shelves for some goodies you may not have read yet. ;)

Oh my your socks are so pretty!

I've been reading The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. They may already be in your extensive collection, but those would be my recommendations :)

The last good stuff I read was recommended by you but I'd really like another pair of socks! I'll stop at Borders tomorrow and see if I find anything inspiring.

I absolutely love the socks!!! Remind me to ask for the pattern. Do I qualify for a pair of socks if I suggested one of your favorite books to someone and they decided to read it??????(maybe ... please....) lol
I know what you mean about it not being the same when it is just you, but alas it is part of the growing up stuff.

Wow, those are beauties! I don't know if I'd have the patience to knit socks because knowing me, they wouldn't match. How many pairs do you think you've knitted and how long have you been knitting (did I suggest a blog entry?)

Really love those socks, makes me want to get my needles out again. Just wanted to say hello.

Impressive knitting, Rachael! The socks are gorgeous. :)

The picture of you all snuggled together watching Formula One is so sweet! What a lovely memory for all of you. :)
