Game Over

The championship game was canceled. Probably due to the shenanigans that went on last Wednesday. The park has the trophy ceremony tomorrow, so we'll find out then if they are co-champions. Thats seems to be the only logically alternative. I know that's the programmer in me thinking because there wasn't anything logical about what happened last week.

The Garter Rib socks are done, done, done. I keep track of my knitting and knitting-related stuff in Knitable. I've entered each project that was in progress in my PDA since I purchased the software in October. Needless to say, somehow I missed one. I didn't enter the socks so I don't have a clue when I started them. I think it was sometime in February.

I enjoyed knitting the Mountain Colors Bearfoot. It's soft and cushy. This is my first time knitting it so I'll have to wait and see how they hold up. They're for mom and she's a lot harder on socks than me. I have one more skein in the stash just for me.

Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Needles: 1 US Inox dpns for body of sock, 0 US Inox dpns for ribbing.
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Wild Raspberry
Size: Women's 10 1/2
Finished: 06/08/2006

Mods: Knitted the socks toe-up instead of top-down.

We used to have one huge blue hydrangea. I used to think that the soil determined the color, but discovered several years back that there are multicolor varieties when I started working for my present employer. All of our campuses are arboretums with some of the most fascinating variety of plants, both native and non-native, that I've ever seen in Columbia.

A true multi-color hydrangea.

Great socks. I really like the color. I have several skeins of Mt. Colors in stash.

I have always been told it was the soil pH that determined hydrangea color. I remember my grandma putting coffee grounds on hers to make them blue! I've learned something from you today.

Hey, I just recently learned that the soil Ph is a myth, too! Great minds think alike! My sister just told me that she saw a pure white one named Sister Theresa. Pure, like me.
Did you notice that your socks match your hydrangea??

The garter ribs are so beautiful. I may have to use my crazy woman bearfoot for the same.
About the sheninigans, that really is something, but then I am a ridiculous, disgusted Cub fan so nothing really surprises me. It has been a annoying season so far......

I've had good luck with Bearfoot durability so far. Lovely socks.
