And finally, there was knitting

So, finally my life is starting to get back to normal. I hauled a ton of boxes out yesterday. I still have about 9 left. 4 of the big hanging clothes boxes and then 4 painting boxes that I unpacked today. Yes, unpacked and hung up art work. Yes, you can all fall over dead. There were only ever artwork hung in my bathroom in Kansas City. Here, I have 5 pictures and 2 shelves. Whoo hoo!

I was up at the crack of dawn this morning. I got up at 6:30 and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and started knitting. First I worked on my neices cardigan for awhile...
...until I almost went crazy from the plain garter stitch. I have 1.5 more stripe pattern repeats on the back before I can move on to finish the right front side.

Then I moved on and finished the first of the Trekking socks I started my last night in KC.
I love, love, love these socks. It's a 3x1 rib and then at the cuff, I did a 1x1 rib (ala Johanna). Yeah for Trekking XXL!

    I can't claim all the credit for the 3x1/1x1 sock recipe — I actually stole it from Christine. I just do mine toe-up, and she does hers top-down. :)
