Hey Gardenmommy!

Yes its the pattern here. :) And it was really easy! I thought it was gona be so hard! The yarn is a Knit Picks Yarn, Sock Memories, Paperdolls. It turned out to be a size newborn with this yarn. So I'm gona try this pattern in Bernats Cotton Tots. I have so many sock plans now! HA! I love it. I went to Hobbly Lobby and picked up a few pattern books for $3 and less at their half price book sale.

I didnt notice until I posted the pic how loose the first stitches were and then how the rest were tight! Maybe I was a little stressed, heh. I'm sore this morning.

They had to get another insurance person to come out and look. So it must be really close to being totaled. We should find out today. Its also the same panel a woman rearended me in in November. Just a week before the baby was born.

Jan I read your joining the olympics with socks! You are gona have so much fun! I cant wait to see yours!

The sock is really cute and the colors are very nice.
So glad everyone is ok after that crash! Just in case you don't know, make sure you replace any car seats and boosters seats that were in the vehicle at the time. The insurance company is responsible to pay for replacement seats just like anything else. Lots of people don't know that you should replace car seats after a crash, as well as any seatbelts that were in use if the vehicle isn't totalled.
Keep on knitting and get all that stress out!

Jan, They totalled it. The good news is I found another one just like it, same color, and 1/2 miles. And its a 4x4, so yeah! We go off roading so this is perfect. After this accident there are places I am no longer brave enough to go.

Mary, thank you for telling me that about the carseats. We had an infant carseat and a booster. We forgot all about that. Dh will discuss this with our insurance today.
