I got a special package in the mail today from a special friend. I was SO EXCITED to see what I got!!! My pay it forward gift was here. I knew I was getting a pair of socks but I didn't know what yarn or colors she'd choose. Well, she choose perfectly. I love them. I can't wait until it's cooler outside and I can wear socks all the time again. Yay for me!

Aren't they great?

I spent some time today cleaning up my messy office. I had projects all over the place. Stacked up one on top of the other. I had to take care of that. My trusty little seam ripper helped me out with some things.

I don't know why she likes to rip out seams but I don't really like too so, I think I'll just let her do that for me.

I mentioned in my previous post that I had finished all my half square triangles. Well, I actually made an oops. I made 32 squares with the wrong coordinating fabric. Oops. Good thing I had some extra so I could correct the mistake. I have little piles of them all over the ironing board right now.

Tomorrow Simon has one of his regularly scheduled doctor appointments to see how the brace is fitting and how his scoliosis is responding to the brace. Hopefully I'll have good news to report like his curve is correcting so well that he'll only need the brace at bed time.... Ok, it will probably be more like- things look fine, curves the same, but he's out grown the brace and he needs a new one. Once we have seen the orthopedic doc I am going to talk to the neurosurgeon again and see if there is anymore follow up stuff we should be doing. I don't want to miss anything.

Two more days of school for the kids. Then it's summer break!

hooray!!! I am so glad that they fit, and you like them. The yarn is designed by Kaffe, btw!

Great socks! I am so jealous... Once my anti~knitting craving (weird!) goes away, I'd like to learn how to knit socks.

Great picture of your lil helper, too.
