The Fishtail Fantasy socks seemed to fly off the needles. I don’t know if it’s because I wanted to get them to Vanessa quickly or because the pattern just works up that quickly or because I’ve spent 20% of my life in airplanes over the last few weeks. Probably the latter (and yes, there is some exaggeration there, though it surely feels that way!). At any rate, they are done and I will mail them tomorrow with goodies from Alaska and DC.
Did I mention Vx is a BIG Obama fan? Since I had to go brief HASC and SASC staffers this week I got the chance to score a nice collection of Obamaniac souveniers at the airport. I’m sure she’ll especially love the “First Lady” breath mints, though the White House toothbrush will be in hot competition. She is not well — surgery yesterday to explore why her liver seems to be slowly failing. They actually hope it’s tumors so they have something to try to fix it. I will cast on another project for her immediately. Keep her in your thoughts.
