Well, the oldest son likes a cup for his morning commute, so it won't go to waste.
On the knitting front, have cast on and started mom's birthday socks. This time I'm going with garter rib (simple 2-row repeat pattern) and same old sock formula. The below picture was from 2 days ago, so the sock has actually grown somewhat. It's almost time to start the heel flap.

The sock mojo is back with a vengeance. My goal for this year is to knit two pairs a month. They will all be destined for family members.
I received more yarn in the mail today and will probably cast on for a cushy cowl knit in soft bulky weight yarn. It will be my own pattern and I will write it up and post it when I've completed it. Maybe this time I'll be smart and write it as I knit instead of waiting until I'm done and scratching my head trying to figure out exactly what I did.
Started watching a new PBS series (well, new for me, anyway) yesterday. It's another in the International Mystery series. This one is about a Finnish private eye. I like it so far. That Finnish is the most unusual language I've ever heard. Fascinating. I can usually pick out a word or phrase in other languages, even Swedish, but not so with Finnish. The opening shots of Finland are gorgeous.
I guess that's enough prattle for today. More tomorrow? God willing.
