You get it? Ones Two...Class of 2012...12...now, you get it?
Joey, of course, said, "Ones Two...that's stupid." So Veronica shot back, "Oh yeah, let's see your class come up with something good for 14!" That's be a toughie. Maybe "The Ones Four Success"? I'll keep you posted.

Honey Cowl (This is very nice in Malabrigo!) Photo to come, sorry! I did a shorter version than the pattern shows.
THEN I knit my Six Socks in September and a beret from the new Coastal Knits per-order package. I'll post photos of that one next time.
Paper Moon (new socks JUST came out with Knitty Deep Fall 2011) in bright pink Madelinetosh sock (oh my!)
I'm making this with Woolease by Lion Brand. I know some of my knitsibs might frown upon making this in a "low end" yarn...but this yarn is really great. I made a Brambles Beret from some cream colored Woolease and it turned out beautiful (can't wait to wear it with my red coat this winter).
This one is a deep royal blue...with my red coat, it'll look great too!
Xenia (with my newly acquired yarn from the Florida Fiber In...the green stuff)
Here she is in her greenie...I love this picture!
A lot of these small projects will become Christmas presents...probably. I'm using all my yarny resistance not to cast on two or three new projects!
Help! Someone talk me down!!

This was my STEAL!! I got it at the auction at the Fiber In (for probably $10 under retail). It's Wollmeise, color is super deep navy called "My old blue Jeans" (the color is more like new-new jeans), 574 yds, fingering weight (superwash) merino. This is the first yarn I've owned that I'm just giddy about!! I feel compelled to wait for the "perfect" pattern to come along...so I'm in no rush to find a project. I'll just ooh and aah over it for a while!
This yarn is only available in the USA at The Loopy Ewe in St. Louis, MO. (I believe, someone correct me if I'm wrong.) I went to their website to see the actual retail and they're sold out.
Christine...sporting the tea-cozy of tomorrow!

Ditto, Pair #3
Half way there!!!
I just talked to my friend in San Diego and they have power back. Not sure if it's back for all of that blackout area or not, but good ole La Mesa is back on the grid.
I read that the blame could possibly fall on one person not doing their job right. I feel so sorry for that person, we all screw up on the job once in a while...but most of us, fortunately, don't have that screw up effect 5 million people.

A couple of planked walkways, too.
Not too much "vegetation" where I took the photo of this sign, but you'll see in other photos...there is a nice buffer of plants and trees all along the trail. Too bad there's no way to cut out the traffic noise.
Pine needles make a nice cushion.
In Jacksonville they say 'there's a church on every corner'...no joke, there is. And they're equal opportunity as well.
With the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 coming up soon, it was nice to see this sign.
Towards the end of the trail, the path becomes very woodsy. There are some dirt trails like in the photo...even a bench to rest on. This little spot is at the top of a little hill.
What's a Sunday ride without a picture of a church.
If you're a resident, you can use this private dock. Isn't the Spanish Moss pretty.
Hard to believe this setting is in the middle of a huge residential development. It was very well thought out. The long stretch home!

This is one sock of my Six Socks in September. The pattern is Hayrick...really lovely pattern. I modified it with my standard heel (pattern has a short row heel, not my fav). It's only 54 stitches around (smallest of three sizes given) but it fits my size 8 foot great.
