The socks are adorable and will be a child's gift. I worked a round toe and loved how it finished.
I copied one of you, (Sorry who was it?) who matched cuff, heels and toes in solids lately.
While I love the effect, it means I ultimately have more ends to weave in.
I prefer to knit socks in one long continuous strand. It is magical to me that way. Then, of course, I only have the start and finish ends to weave in. Am I lazy or what?
I've been encouraged to write some poems for children and I'm working on it. Poetry is more my way than stories. I'm completely bragging but Zach got a poem published in a Chicago publication and its fantastic. We just got our copies.
It is in Spanish or I'd ask to reprint it here. Maybe I'll get him to translate it if anyone wishes and post it here. IT is about his city, Chicago. I'm really proud of him.
My new life without working weekend nights is amazing. I am not a ball of energy like I wished I'd be, but I don't nap EVERY day.
I have a 3 shift weekend requirement over 6 weeks. So, for instance, today (Sunday) Im working 3-11.
I always pick this shift to work. Pm's or PUMS as we call them, means you can sleep in and go to bed late.
This is my body's cycle of choice. Always has been. It is also just an 8 hour shift......and that's a joy! 12 hour shifts are not my friends...
We have the most adorable little girl who visits her baby brother on the unit. She was ours a few years ago. Her brother is on this high tech ventilator and it jiggles his body. Her eyes lit up as I walked in the room the other night and she exclaimed, 'MY baby is dancing! see?' Out of the mouths of babes...
Finally this morning, and thanks for those who indulged me, is the topic of cell phones. The photos in today's post are from my i phone. That's why they are so small. I can't enlarge them on Blogger if they are from my cell phone.
I thoroughly enjoy my cell phone. I certainly don't need it. I'd love to have the Jeopardy clock as my phone ring tone but I dont know how to arrange that.
I do not text while driving. That's impossible, I can barely drive and drink a coke at the same time while in Rhonda my stick shift Honda.
I do occasionally talk on the phone while driving..but I shouldn't . I say things like, "Hold on I have to shift" and I do it, but I vow to stop. I have been known to pull over to talk on the phone;I think that's the best way for me.
Happy Sunday. Thoughts anyone?
