Blue Monday

Last night I finished my first blue sock for Socktopia's January theme. Of the three theme possiblities, I chose the Blue Monday theme. This morning I woke up and kitchnered the toe. Not being a sharp morning person, this is a very dangerous activity.
One reason today is a Blue Monday? We didn't get the day off as a holiday from work so here I am at my desk, sneaking in the cast on for blue sock two.


Stop! In the Name of Blog!

Not being one for generating very many original ideas I was a little lost as to what I could post about after the ABC along finished last year. But then I read about the Do You Have One of These? hosted by Stacie of the mommymoshpit over on Bezzie's blog and I was saved!

The first assignment is easy: Post the Stop Sign nearest your house:

Stop Sign, 10:15 PM, 13-Jan-2007

This was taken with my camera phone as I drove by so it looks even creepier.

I joined the "Do you Have one of These" too! I think it will be fun.

Your sign does look a little spooky!

Nice sock!

Thanks for that link - I could do with something this year to encourage me to blog more often!

Nice sock, particularly for one that was kitchenered early in the morning. I'm also not a morning person, which is frustrating because I've discovered that I do my best work between 9 PM and 2 AM, then between 6 AM and 11 PM, at which point I collapse.

The other thing not to do when you're sleepy: lace. Bad idea, that.

BTW, thanks for the encouraging comments on my blog! I hope your spinning is going OK too. Too bad you don't live nearby, we could wrestle with our spindles and laugh at each other when things go wrong.

Ok, even though I got yesterday off (and today--hooray for weenie Texans!) I'm jealous that you can sneak casting on a sock at work!!!! The first one looks good!

I dig the spooky stop sign. I wonder what people think when we take pictures of such mundane things? ;-)

I should look into that and join it. It would be nice to have something fun to blog about.

The sign is spoooooky

It is a spooky stop sign photo! Good job, like right out of a movie scene:) Nice sock and I am digging the reflection of it in the coffee pot!
