Look! Twins!

I finished the Irish twins today. They're done! I'm so happy that I finished a pair.

Hey Kelly . . . I'll hold up my end of the bargain. I'll wear these on Thursday if you wear your Isabella. We can both be show-offs.

And since I finished the first socks, I let myself start these:

They're another modified Monkey with my new Soxx Appeal yarn. This is my new favorite yarn. I absolutely love the way it feels - it's so soft and stretchy. I like the way the colors are working, too. So pretty. I want more.

On the mothering front, I'm so proud of my boy. M. has been doing the teenage boy stay-up-all-night-sleep-all-day thing. After pulling a 24 hour-straight-awake day, he's back to normal. He woke up yesterday at 9 AM - all by himself - and today he woke up at 10 AM. It doesn't take much to make me happy - and he's happy, too. He likes being up during the day and seeing the sunlight. Imagine that. I took him out to dinner last night to celebrate. Tomorrow I'm taking him to buy a new mattress. Um, maybe that's not a good idea.

Lil' Bush is on, so I have to go watch it. Barbara Bush just helped Lil' George get dressed in his Aqua Man undies. Too funny. Love this show.

My first pair of socks didn't look anywhere near as nice as yours. Heck, yours even match! I would never have pondered that one on the first pair either.

Darn it!! I keep meaning to watch Lil Bush, and I keep missing it! OK, you're on..I will wear the Isabella! I am looking forward to seeing you show off your socks!

My sleepin' shorts should be done by thursday, but I'm not wearing them to SnB.

Congrats on your socks!

That's one good looking pair of socks! I'm so jealous that you got the Yarn Harlot to hold one!

Very nice, Knelley! Can't wait to see the complete pair!
