Cherry and heels are complete, Chocolate (actually, its root beer brown, Lion Brands, Sock Ease—all the other colors are Kroy) started. I've worked a stripes worth of twists—and I'll do a few more rounds with twists and then switch over to simple ribbing, (and just before the toe, stocking knit)

I'd write more, but heat and morning activities have left me exhausted.

And now, a special message for Nyer's. If you ever need a tow, I can recommend InterCounty Auto, 718 961-2002. I got put in touch with them via Geico (I have a service rider on my insurance—about $10 for the year) and my dead car (with supposedly a starter problem?) Well the tow truck driver—instead of towing suggested he push and I drive and to jump start my car (I drive stick, so this is an option) and it worked! I drove to the mechanics (there is something wrong—once I stopped (parked) there, it wouldn't start again. But it was so great to be able to drive there.

I started my car saga this morning at 9 am with the call for service.. (and here it is, 1PM before I got home!) and now I am off to take a quick nap before heading to the pool (after the mid day sun!)

Glad the car thing worked out. Those socks are going to be pretty cute!

What a day for it to be so hot and so humid, too. Glad you were able to drive to the mechanic. Saved some steps.

The socks are very lovely! Where do you get such lovely props (the feet things you use)?
