One Cider Moon Sock Done!

We are talking a really speedy pattern! Also? Starting tomorrow Cider Moon is putting their Glacier yarn on sale. 20% off through July 6. I said it yesterday, I'll say it again, go scope it out!

My old SP9 Pal over at Midwest Knit Girl tagged me for the Wiki Meme. You go over to Wikipedia and enter your birthdate and then you pick 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday that occured on the day of your birthday. Here it is:

February 10

3 Events:
1954 - President Dwight Eisenhower warns against United States intervention in Vietnam.
1940 - The first Tom and Jerry cartoon "Puss Gets the Boot" premiers.
1967 - The 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution ratified.

2 Births:
1893 - Jimmy Durante, American actor/comedian (d. 1980)
1961 - George Stephanopoulos, Canadian political commentator
1991 - Emma Roberts, American actress (yep - me and Nancy Drew people!)

1 Holiday: (and there was only one)
Italy - National Memorial Day of the Exiles and Foibe to commemorate Italian Istrian and Dalmatian exiles and Foibe massacres.

16 days left, and we're leaving for the cabin later this afternoon. We'll be back later on Sunday night only to head back again on Tuesday evening until the following Sunday. We'll probably blogio silence for a while. When I come back, there may only be a few days left in this cursed diet.

Comments:
you are no help at all. first you tease me with a preview of the sock, then you torment me with a finished sock. AND you mention the yarn will be on sale! *sigh*
 
I am so proud of you for sticking to it. I don't think I would have made it a month. I think there will be a Loopy Ewe update right after the diet is over. Woo hoo
 
Wow, that's certainly a major holiday...not! ;)
 
Now that your diet is almost over are you going to tell us how much "weight" you've lost. Or - more importantly - how much weight your stash is going to gain about 30 seconds after the diet is ove!
 
Sounds like fun. Enjoy your cabin time.
 
How do you knit your socks so fast?
 
To Jill - you're giving her 30 seconds? I give her about 10!
 
I'm still trying to figure out what that holiday means in your meme...I have read it 3 times and I'm STILL confused! Hope you have a great time at the cabin, we had a blast at the campgrounds we went to this past weekend (in Centerville). Awesome place but I was so distracted by the gorgeous weather I didn't sit still for long, so no knitting progress - darn.

Later gator!
 
Great sock and great yarn. 20th Anniversary is coming up. Maybe the DH can be convinced to float me some dough to hit some of the great sites you keep tempting us with. Whatcha think?
