A full to the very edge to the brim Eye Candy Friday

Last weekend we played tourist at Mt. Holyoke college


Admired the buildings...


looked at the fancy gate...


took weird pictures from the library windows.


Then came the Seuss overload:






And we exercised THE sock...



But we were recovering nicely this week until I got this in my email today....


Now I'm scared for THE poor sock, not even past its ribbing yet....

A tear of joy?

The first of the THE socks is done.
Well... I say done in the sense that it can only be done until its partners is done and then we see how much yarn there is to do the toes in... until then its toe stitches are on stitch holders.

Thing One thought it was done the other day.


In fact it is longer then my foot right now but looks amazing on. Ever Dr. Seuss (With the Cat in the Hat behind him) pondered it for a while.


Yes, we were at the Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield MA. Both socks as well as my parents, my sister and my grandfather enjoyed our time there. More pictures from our trip will be posted tomorrow or when I feel like finding the cord for my camera. (This was a multi-camera family trip so we are buried in pictures)

Today I am mentioning THE sock because while I am happy to FINALLY finish it, its almost sad move on to the next one. I have hated and loved this pattern. Oh, wait. I still I have second dreaded sock to do. What did I say about hating this pattern? I have given myself until next Thursday evening to finish this pair of socks and one other pair of socks. Both pairs now have one sock finished in the pair. Can I make it in time?

This is just a hint of some of the pictures we took over the weekend. Can you guess where we were?

Meet Errol the long awaited wacky penguin!


He came to live with Beth over a week ago but it took him a while to become America's Next Top Penguin. He was pretty easy to make. I love his cute face.



He has a lopsided face that is just so cute and his eyes add such character.

Anyone wondering how THE sock is doing? Slower then I would like but I am working on it. Here is the progress so far.
