Pair TWO for my SIL's Mom's birthday is complete:
Not bad production following such a slow spell. Work just had to intrude, ya know. I am now on pair #3 of three planned pairs. Her birthday is May 14th, and I am leaving town on May 11th, but if all else fails, I will mail Pair Three from the road.
Only two more days until the dossiers and pattern is emailed out for this year's round of Sock Wars. I know some folks grumbled about the lackluster ending of last year's competition, but come on....one poor woman trying to organize an event that grew nearly 500% from the previous year....give the gal a break! I had fun....was killed in very short order and enjoyed every minute of it. I think it's too late to sign up for this year, but think about it for next year. One refinement over this year is that the dossiers are emailed out on May 9th and 10th, but the "killing" or maybe "knilling" starts on May 15th, to ensure everyone gets the dossiers before any killing ensues. Technology is great, but allowing for SNAFU's is even better!
As I mentioned earlier, I will be heading out on May 11th to once again journey with hubby to our great nation's capitol to hob-nob with our legislators and fellow REALTORS. I'll be hanging out at Russia House one night....stop by.....first round of infused vodka and a Baltika #9 is on me (that is, if I'm still sober enough to remember I made the offer!).
Can somebody stop by my house next week to make sure my kids haven't killed each other? Now, before someone goes off on me for leaving my kids home alone for a week, may I remind you that only ONE of my kids is under 18! And I'm leaving the one who is actually responsible with money (and has no criminal record) in charge! OK, OK, so none of my kids have criminal records, but you know what I mean!
