I was nearly finished with first TS when I decided to try it on (for length) and wouldn't you know the whole damn thing was too small - could barely fit it over my heel - so it has been frogged and restarted. My gauge got so tight it was like knitting chainmail. I trekked with it to the Antiques Roadshow taping but since no cameras were allowed I couldn't take a photo. AR was lots of fun, had a book and ring appraised. Everyone was nice, the crowd was huge, and we had a great time. There was a couple there carrying around a 18x24 shadowbox frame. I kept trying to see what was in it. I finally got a glimpse. It was a 3-D picture of Ronald McDonald. Really. After the first glimpse it was like a horror movie where each time I looked, there it was. We had a good laugh anyhow.
After I frogged the sock I decided to finish the pretty pink prairie tunic I had started a couple of months ago. It's done but for the blocking, and I will get a picture up soon. In the meantime, this will have to hold you over. A gaggle of cousins, including me on the right, all the way in front. This is 1957. Back when we were all so adorable.
