Here's a better shot of the sock. The first picture was taken on the verandah and I guess it was a bit shady there. This second shot was taken on the trunk of my car in the direct sunlight. The stitch definition is better and the colour is more accurate in the second picture.

....Hmmm ok looking at the shot on here I realized the stitch definition is better in the first shot, but the colour is exactly like I see it in this shot.

I'm on the heel to the flower sock...Carla and anyone who can crochet get ready...mom didn't get a chance to show me how to crochet the flowers that closes the sock going up the side...I'm thinking of changing it to a knit flower...but since I want to learn how to crochet I feel like I should give it a try

Silegose~I hope you can get to the other socks soon...I know what you mean it is very hard to travel with kids...we go home for Christmas too...and always wonder how will we get home with all the gifts
I am Home... DH is the one we have to travel for. Yes, WE never have enough room after going to his parents for xmas. We even drive the explorer and thats not a small truck. We did travel once to OH and do santa there.. I did say ONCE.. never again. We spent soooo much on xmas that year because we had to do xmas in both places

Alles... I hope all goes well and the little darling comes soon. I do have one piece of advise... IF you have c-section get up and move as SOON as possible. It will help a lot in your recovery. I have had 4 of them already and with my 3rd they did not let me out of bed for 2 days. It was the worst recovery I have had. Also... Keep a pillow close by very close!! You will need it to hold on your belly (kinda firmly) when you have to cough. I hope I am not scaring you. But they dont tell you this stuff before hand.

TK... wow you move fast. I guess I better get a move on it... the socks are looking very good!! I did change the color and yarn.. Not sure what the color is but it is cherry hill brand.

have a good night all.

Silee: On close inspection, these actually DO look like little cables! I am at the heel flap now and I think that is enough for tonight. I am quite pleased with the results so far. This is a nice sock that has lots of stretch to it but still looks fancy and dressy. I am considering taking the pattern all the way down to the toes on the front of the sock. I will decide once I have the heel flap finished. I am going to use Silver's heel flap, heel and gusset though. It looks a lot easier then the one this pattern calls for.

Gina: I hope your hands feel better today and that you had a nice Easter.

Good morning Jackie and good night to the rest of you!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter. I can still smell the turkey here (yummy). Turkey sandwiches for lunch tomorrow!!! I will also be making up some turkey soup tomorrow. Why waste good food when you can make it up and freeze it. Then one day when I don't feel like cooking (perhaps because I am knitting all day long???) I will still have a good hearty meal to give DH when he gets home!

Hi
Morning all,

How's everyone's Easter celebrations. Thanks for sharing each and different household 's Easter Day.

No knitting done yesterday as Sunday is a family day wherby we will do one thing together. We went shopping in IMM, this is a huge building with lots and lots of shops on every floor (we hardly finish going by), there is a Japanese store selling every items at $2 each ( i mean everything in the store ) which is our favourite hangout there.

oh, love to see FOs of socks and dishcloths. Keep on coming

Jackie: I took some pictures of the Easter treats to show you. I almost forgot to post them before I crawled into bed. We just had a small Easter but each of us got a treat.

My DH's knickname is Puppy so that will explain the one chocolate "bunny".

The one he got for me is dark chocolate which is my alltime favourite.

Sile, thanks for the advice. This won't be my first c-section, nor my first abdominal surgery. I had a gastric bypass 2 and a half years ago, and 4 hours post op I was asking the nurses to get out of bed to walk. I know also that it's possible to over do it, so I just need to listen to my body and know when I can't do something. I'm hoping the section isn't necessary though. I've been having contractiobns about every 3 min for the past hour or so. But, based on my last visit to the hospital (which I don't want to repeat), I'm just relaxing at home. Baking cookies, watching DH play his xbox. I'll go in when and if it's needed. I'd love to have her naturally and without the surgery. Tomorrow would be nice. I have nothing scheduled for tomorrow.
