Here Kitty, Kitty!

I know, I know. I KNOW! I am incorrigible. Sophie's Toes in the Calico colorway.

In the meantime, here is the interim sock I've been working on. I'll save the details for when it's done. In the meantime, I got the next installation of the Mystery Sock Pattern (yay - the heel!)


Still, I insist, only two arms.

In Real Life
Puck plays in the Football finals over the next week, and he starts Hockey tonight. Crazy, isn't it? Then today the Teen takes the PSAT and this afternoon his dad is taking him to visit UW Madison. How can my boys be this big?

Comments:
I'm with you on the insane schedules. Still praying Hockeyman makes J.V. because the game and practice schedule will seem so tame, compared to Jr. Gold.

How about those Wild!?!
 
Oh, that's a pretty sock! Looks like spring. ;) Hockey already. That just boggles my mind!
 
pretty, pretty socks.
 
Okay, I know I'm supposed to be looking at the yarn and the sock. But I'm dazzled by that very interesting wooden bowl!
 
Yeah!!! Two days off of school!!!! Madison - smart boy!
 
Whoa! I've missed three posts! Sheesh.

I am drooling all over my sticky keyboard because of all that yarny yumminess!

How are your H.H.H. (happy hunting hounds)?
 
I like Chris' hockey already comment - in some circles, hockey never ends. Love the yarn, love the bowl! and am mystified by the term "interim sock".
 
Youngest Child starts "Mighty Kids" hockey next Saturday - we'll be on that merry-go-round for the next 13 or so years! And Middle Daughter is just applying to UW-Madison without visiting. She says, "I can always visit later." Hopefully, after she turns 18 and drive herself there.
 
Excellent idea on the college visit. I wish we had started sooner. It's funny how fast those last few years goes by! (and BOY, is it eye-opening visiting colleges as a parent!)
