Ive gotten past the heel turn on both pair of socks for Sockdown Sep 08 Challenges and am seriously comptemplating casting on the Mystery SSock as well. Only problem there…I’m out of orange yarn and my favorite dyer is temporarily closed due to Hurricane Ike :-(
Ike like everybody knows hit the east coast of TX this past weekend and tore up Galveston and most of Houston as well as numerous other towns and communities. We are all praying they are getting the relief they need from the State and Feds and that everybody finds their house intact, yes, but mostly just plain repairable and that they dont have to stay relocated for to long. Speaking of Houston, Ray from Knitivity is fine and back home!!! However like most everybody else he has no electricity and is hurting for business. Hopefully he is able to get to a working comp soon because I am sure he is gonna find several orders for not only yarn but also donations for his charity hats. I plan to order some yarn from him here pretty soon as a gift and also I want to get his “Suprise Me” sock yarn as soon as he is able to dye again. Please help him out, Knitivity was born from the wreckacge of Hurricane Katrine…PLEASE dont let his dream die because of Hurricane Ike.
Housing update: My dad and Brian got the doors up in my mom’s house and my mom and I got the 2nd floor mostly cleaned and ready to be finished!!! We will be doing the drywall in the main room this week and hopefully starting to paint this weekend. TS Ike however may put the painting on hold as my folks have a couple of trees down from him coming through one of which is perilously close to their house, thankfully it fell the otherway! So my dad and Brian may be cutting it out this weekend.
Thats all for now I’ll try to get some pics in the next couple of days of the sock progress and some of the house progress (if I remember to of the house,,,OOPS)
Hope everybody is fine and not many of you have to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.
