Dave and I made it to the finish line shortly after the girls did, and I was able to snap these pics:

I've been happily knitting away on my newest pair of socks and I've gotta tell ya that I just adore this pattern and the wonderful Hand Maiden yarn! I dropped back by Knitch on Friday and picked up another skein so that I can get going on another pair when I finish these. Here is sock number one:
The yarn is called Casbah and it is 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon. The best part is that the socks are machine washable! Aren't they cute!!! The pattern is Simply Lovely Lace Socks by Karen Baumer and it is so easy to follow. I love her directions and really found the heel simple to work.
We are finally getting some much-needed rain here in the south. Here's a rather lovely 'thunderbump' that I photographed the other evening while we were at the condo:
If you enlarge this pic and look carefully, you'll see a jet just about to enter the cloud on the left side of the cloud, about halfway down. We watched that plane from our 14th floor perch, wondering if he'd go around the storm and just pass right through it. Hope everyone had their seat belts on!!
Our friends K & M visited with us in Midtown last week and we had a great time! They enjoy so manyof the same things that we do......including great food! We walked to Mitra on Friday night and all partook of varying renditions of the prix fixe menu. Well done Mitra!!!
Hope you've had a great week!
