Before I do anything today I have to give a big huge THANK YOU to by buddy Trek! Notice my sidebar? Notice that's is not all screwy like it's been for the last few weeks? Trek fixed it...yea!! It's very handy having a programmer for a friend. Thank you so much!

Ok on to the knitting! I have pictures of the lace for you.

I can't wait to see how it looks when it's done. (for the record, it's not crooked - that's just the way it got pinned for the photo) I'm still enjoying it but I'm a little worried about how long it's going to take me to finish. The thing increases 4 stitches every other row & 8 stitches every 7th row. I'm already at almost 100 stitches and I'm only on the third pattern repeat. And then there is edging. I worked on it for two hours the other night and only did 4 rows. At the rate I'm going I'll be bored to death before I'm even close to finished. We'll see how it goes, hopefully it will keep me entertained long enough to get done.

I'd also like to share the ultra secret project that I didn't even tell you I was doing it was so secret! You all know I made mom socks for her birthday - but the super secret was I also made her socks for Christmas (being modeled by me, I really, really loved these socks & almost didn't give them to her) The yarn was wonderful (Regia) the pattern easy - (Gull wings, from Socks, Socks, Socks) and they only gave me small little problems here and there and she loved them. I hate the new socks & just cast on, they've got this annoying twisted rib thing that just won't cooperate so it's coming out tonight. Hopefully the pattern works out to be ok. I'll keep you posted.

You are very welcome and the lace is looking great!
I agree! I wish I could knit as well as you could. Or should I try crochet instead? (my friends consider crochet for guys so I don't know).

Anyways, I hope your mom enjoys the sockes!
