Birthday Socks

I'm making Scott some socks for his birthday on Wednesday. I'm not sure I'll make it before then.

I don't think I'm going to make it. Luckily he won't be home until Friday so I have a few extra days. If I don't finish them it is because a) I've been falling asleep every time I get comfortable. Just like everyone else in this town, I have a sinus infection plus whatever is going around; or b) I ripped them out because the gauge feels too loose and my stitches are uneven. My favorite pair of sock needles for stockinette socks have gone missing and I'm trying to adjust to this new set of 5" needles and I'm having trouble getting a rhythm.

Our fuchsia hanging basket has really taken off the last few weeks.
