This sock is ready for its toe and the other one will be ready soon.
I found this magazine that explains different sock toe variations for different feet
and how to calculate for them.
I have short toes with very little taper
so I am excited to try a different type of finish for my pair of socks.

We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday
and are responsible for several dishes.
I was able to complete the grocery list
with the exception of a couple things
that we picked up later at another store.
The trick after filling my cart was finding the best line
and then waiting for my turn at the checkout.

I found this in the closet where the puzzles reside the other day
while I was straightening things up.
It looks like I bought it on clearance at the book store last year after Halloween.
I forgot that I had it so I forgot to work it.
I remedied this oversight tonight.
I started it too late to finish but surely will tomorrow.
I have also updated yesterday's post to include a link to a picture of Fireball
in the sweater I mentioned in the post.

I realize now seeing this picture that it's hard to tell what it even is.
Little E is an excellent and speedy knitter.
The one thing she doesn't like much about the process is weaving ends in.
I, on the other hand, don't mind at all.
This piece is a pullover sweater she made for her dad, Fireball,
as a surprise for his birthday.
I had some time today while a service tech did furnace maintenance,
so I have now woven in all the ends
and Fireball can wear the sweater to work this week.

Fireball and I completed the fire pit tonight
with some coordinated teamwork.
It was a timely finish as it was getting too dark to work,
and the temperatures are going to be much colder
for at least the next week,
making the use of the block adhesive inadvisable.

New yarn arrived today.
This is incentive to get those green socks done
so I can dream up what kind of socks this will become.
This is a fairly new yarn dyer and she has lovely stuff in her shop.
If you are a knitter, go check her out.

Look. It's my green socks.
I scrolled back in my pictures
and I think I last worked on these in April.
Over the last few days I have started
and finished the gusset on the sock to the right.
Now I will put that sock away
and do the gusset on the other sock.
From there it will be smooth sailing down to the toe.
