A few months back I was saying that I don't mind winter all that much. Now I'm ready to scream. Just take a look at these socks that I finished not too long ago. As my hand knit sock wardrobe dwindles, I wore this pair a lot. I've never worn a pair out this fast. It's not just a little hole--the entire heel is gone. So much for reinforcement. I may just cut the cuffs off and knit new feet. I hardly have any wool socks left.
Every day I'm on line looking for a new place for Lucky Penny HQ. The Man is being useless in this process. That's not new. But so frustrating. I looked at one place that was so tiny that I would have to get rid of at least 50% of my furniture. The thing that really appealed to me was the idea of being able to do laundry at home. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a strong lead on a reasonably priced place with laundry and parking in a really good location comes through. The search is getting depressing.
