My sockapalooza socks are all finished! I couldn't be happier, and hope that my buddy likes them. They are from Handknit Holidays, the Log Cabin socks, turned into knee-highs by adding enough stitches for my partner's calf and decreasing down the side so they fit the ankle. I love the purple color, another Cascade 220 superwash, it took whole skeins to finish these, just a few yards left to send along in case of emergency.

Yesterday was Big Brother's birthday! Holy smokes, he's 14 now. Almost impossible to wrap my head around. He had some friends over for a swimming party, which was cut short by the rain, and cake, his favorite, red velvet. (another diet starts for me today)

He's a great kid and I hope this year is a great one for him.
