We're back from Wisconsin. We had a very nice time and Henry was very well-behaved during traveling (I'm not saying it was easy or fun, but he was a pretty darn good baby).

I didn't get much knitting done at all. I have no idea why I brought so many projects with me because the only thing I worked on was the Opal Tiger socks. Nice and mindless and portable and they are about 75% complete.

I'm happy to report that my mom loves all the wool socks that I make for her and she does indeed wear them. A lot. As a matter of fact, she still continues to wear her favorite pair even though the heels are blown out (must make her a new pair for Christmas). She seems to like the worsted weight socks the best since they are very warm and cushy for wearing around the house. Of course, the fact that I use superwash merino and she wears them around the house = blown out heels. Maybe I will try to knit the next pair on smaller needles.

We did stop at a rummage sale and I got a bunch of great old knitting/craft/crochet magazines for 50 cents for the entire bag! Woo!

Welcome home.
