Down the street on a warm sunny day:

I don't know how he does it, but Grilltech had these socks for six months before he wore a hole in them. I was reading the forums and they had talked about the Darn Easy, I went out to ebay and picked it for about 15 bucks. Instead of rubber bands, I used Goody Ouchless hair bands. They worked like a charm.

It took me about 30 minutes to fix the hole. I'm sure Roxie would have them nice and even (she's a weaver). Pretty good for my first time.

I finished the baby sweater.

I've finished knitting the additional length to Grilltech's sweater. Now, I've got to graph 400+ stitches. I'm not good at that, so I'm making a dish cloth or two, so I've got something to practice with.

For Mother's day, Perky and Kommadant took me and his mom to the Idaho Aquarium. Grilltech got a nice picture of all of us feeding the fish.

And every aquarium has a lizard, right? When he jumped into the pool, all the fish scattered!

I used a lightbulb to darn socks until Pk made me darning eggs. It's totally self serving on his part since he's really hard on socks.

Aquariums are such interesting places.

Lovely way to spend a Mother's Day! Iguana and all.

Your darning looks awesome. Good job!

Love the baby sweater. With another grandchild coming I'm collecting patterns :-)

What a fun Mother's Day!
