MoMo, BoBo and SockJo....

Hey Knitty People!
Thank the good Lord that I am finally feeling better....regularly! Other than having some bug and I ran a fever for 5 days, but hey, that's cool, I'm actually getting up and out of the bed some!!! YIPPEE KIYAY is what I say!
OMGoodness, OMGoodness, OMGoodness! I am now really and truly set up as a (I so still and don't know if I will ever believe it)....D.E.S.I.G.N.E.R. on the one and only CAN YOU BELIEVE?! I'm so honored and it's really very surreal and exciting and Ohhhhh..wonderful!!! I still have to upload a few patterns and all of my finished designs will be on there...I do so hope to get that done in the next day or 2. Just as I fully intend to finally start reading your blogs again...thank ya'll so very much for being so patient and understanding with me this year as I've been laid up....ya'll are FANTASTIC!!

OH, let's talk about the title of this post as it came to me today, my cat Moshi of whom we call was playing with me while I was giving his hair grass trim today. And as I end this explanation, somebody is back because my hand feels better..... SOCK JO, my best knitty friend!!!!! I started these blasted toe up socks weeks ago before I had to stop knitting because my hand was hurting so badly (I've been on and off, now mostly on crutches for over 20 years and I did marathon knitting, etc as I wrote in the previous post) and I thought that I didn't like the toe ups because my hands were hurting, but no...I was right all along, I PREFER cuff down! I did these with a gusset so that I could reinforce the area where Lonnie wears through his socks. But, much as I dislike darning socks (which is gonna happen if you wear the hand knit socks and Lonnie does!) I do believe I'd rather continue darning than knit all of his socks toe up! Sorry, bit of a Sock Jo rant, SJ can rant when she wants to, ya know! These are simple ribbed socks, so, of course I won't write a pattern...but, I do have 3 patterns on the drawing board for Lonnie now.
Speaking of my Honey, My Man, My Husband, the best one in the world....guess what we ordered for him the day it was announced?! Are you guessing?!....go ahead guess....














If you guessed the new 160 GB iPod then you are so RIGHT!!! I am so VERY, VERY HAPPY that he agreed to order it! He never, ever wants to get such things for himself right away, he has to think about it forever and then get it. Well, I told him he had to get it because if he didn't I would order it and there was no telling what I would engrave on it! So, he agreed with me and ordered it, I'm so happy that it's him getting a cool new surprise this time, he certainly deserves it! Oh, his engraving:
Line 1: Lonnie's iPod
Line 2: KEEP AWAY!

You & Lonnie spoil each other! Those socks look great, even if they have been a pain to knit! Glad to hear you are doing better!

Lonnie's iPod arrived TODAY! on the 9-10, and they've not even hit the stores, he came home from work to pick it up about 20 minutes after fedex left, LOL! He seems to really like it which makes me happy as can be!!!

Love the engraving on Lonnie's ipod. That's so neat you two spoil each other as much as you do. Glad your hand is better.

Hi and thank you for your lovely comments.

I bought one of those Monkey guys for my Monkey Swap Pal yesterday on the behest of my DS aged 9. He's looking out for my secret pal too :)

Congrats on Ravelry too, it's so much fun!

Here's to a speedy recovery too. :)
