So we had a little thunderstorm here in Tulsa this afternoon, which is great for drought-stricken Oklahoma.
I love thunderstorms, but this one got kind of scary really fast, but my favorite local weather guy wasn't worried, so neither was I. The picture above is what it looked like right before it started raining. And please note, this was not a nighttime storm--this was at a quarter til two in the afternoon.
The picture at right is the tree in front of my house. The rain was just pouring down.
I finished knitting the crazy striped socks meant for my sister, finally. Just your basic sock pattern with Regia self-striping yarn on size 1 needles. I tried really hard to make them identical twin socks, but despite my best efforts, they are fraternal twins. *sigh* Eddie certainly seems to like them though.
A little bit of indulgence this afternoon. I got some Koigu Painter's Palette yarn for some new socks. I don't know what the color is, but it looks nice in my bathroom!
And, finally, Pomatomus progress. I'm just about done with the first of three pattern repeats, and, knock-on-wood, it seems to be progressing nicely at this point. I know I have made some mistakes along the way, specifically with not keeping my knits and purls lined up the way they were supposed to be, but I don't think the mistakes are noticeable, and I pledge to pay better attention with Repeat Number 2! And because I've gotten a few questions about it, the yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Spanish Moss.
