I decided that I could whip up a pair of socks for Youngest Grandson before I send off the scrappy socks to Second Son. I'm about ready to turn the heel on these. I did most of the work while visiting with and taking BFF, F to the doctor yesterday. Once I got home it was run around and do this and that. So I didn't get much more done.I did, however almost finish a little white and red sock for Feetz. I would have finished it and CO the next one if suddenly the power had not gone out. We had determined a few days ago we were out of easily found matches. And of course we didn't bother to pick some up. However, a book was found, the candles lit, necessary activities were done and we all went to bed an hour earlier than usual. Power was reestablished around 90 minutes later (only knowing that by the time flashing on my electric clock this morning).
