Need a vacation from my vacation. . .

Yep, vacations are stressful! Okay, my family usually has an initial fight the first day we all get together. That day was Wednesday of last week. After that, we mostly calmed down and got along. The most stressful aspect of the entire week was the fact that I have a 22 page paper due at the end of the semester and I had to work on it. Okay, maybe there are actually 2 stresses over Thanksgiving Break, my grandparents got on everyone's nerves. I love them to death, but they are getting bitchier with age. No idea why.
Sooo I took some pics of Thanksgiving day and thought the ones below came out the best. I like them =P

I finished my grandpa's scarf finally and gave it to him. I believe he really liked it. My grandma loved her scarf with the pin. I'm glad those were a hit. My mom also LOVED her Buckeye socks, even though the scarlett was a little dark. . . . oops? She's probably wearing them right now. The Mountain Colour Socks she stole from me have definately been worn A LOT! I think she felted them by wearing em. Weird eh?

I also finished Alicia's socks. Here is a pic of her wearing them right after I finished sewing up the last toe. She doesn't like getting her picture taken. =/ She's adorable and we all adore her, so I think this pics cute. She loves the socks and wore them right when she and Mike got back to Austin because it was in the 40s. =P

Yep, a week of finished objects. I finished my Socks That Rock socks. The colourway is Farmhouse in Mediumweight and the pattern is one I randomly came up with. Here's a brief idea of what I did
needles - US 4
Cast On 48 stitches
stitch pattern -

Rows 1 through 4: K4 P2, repeat until end of row
Row 5: K 2 through the back and then rework the first stitch before taking it off of the needle. Repeat once more then P2. Repeat this until the end of the row
Repeat Rows 1 through 5

It's pretty and basic and it breaks up a boring rib. Oh and Ohio State beat Michigan again and Lloyd Carr is retiring. =/

Messed up nails, sore fingertips, and 3 hours later... I've got 12"sets of 5" completed, put on stitch holders and weaved securely with the needle into the sash! Pheuf!!! That's done! All I need to do is finish up the photoshoot...and scan the patt. for any errors, and put it into a pdf.
Gosh I'm good. ;) (or maybe just a professional procrastinator. Damn. Back to 10 page paper and studying.)
