Ms. Limedragon linked some photos from 1918 with many little girls with large bows on their heads. I had to show this photo from my family tree. How do you like that 'stache on my Great Grandpa? (He later died when run over by a runaway horse and wagon - word is he overindulged from time-to-time.) I think my grandma wins the large bow contest - don't you think? I actually have this photo out because Puck (my youngest) is a complete throwback and his face is a dead ringer for grandma at this age. (Tidbit of Info: My grandmother graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Botany back in 1916/18. She was in the first graduating class from the U of M that contained women - woot! Go Grandma!)
I finished my first Meida last night:
This shot is actually better for color-correctness. I really love this pattern - next time I'm making the cuff longer. This sock knits so fast and the pattern is EXTREMELY easy to remember.
Lacrosse has taken over my life this week - so I have to catch the computer time when I can - I'll hope to catch y'all later.

I'm so loving those socks. Can you tell me where I might find the pattern?
That is a fantastic family photo. And way to go Grandma! I wonder, did she ever get to work as a botanist?
