Still no magazine, but I have a sock!

John made fun of me today while I jumped up and ran to the front room every time I thought I heard the mail man. Unfortunately, he did not bring a magazine. In fact, the only thing he brought was my book from OverStock.com: 200 Crochet Blocks. I’d been eyeing the book at the bookstore the past few weeks. Well, I had some leftover money on my OverStock gift card and they had this book so I snagged it.

I did also finish my first sock of the pair. The pattern had info on doing a chevron cuff and I chose to do that this time. I think it turned out well. See?

I love how the colors striped like they did. It made the cuff pop as well:

Yesterday I got quite a bit done on what we’ll now call Super Secret Project #2 (the item that will be published next year). It’s moving along pretty quickly and I’m ahead of projected goals of how much I need to have done each day to get finished on time. The plan is to continue staying ahead of the curve so I have plenty of time. This helps just in case something happens and I get sick…I can still get it done. Sure, it’s not something regular people worry about, but when you have fibromyalgia, it is something that stays in the forefront of your mind. I never like to plan something right up to the end because something always happens. I may work some this weekend on it doing a bit of the small bits so I can be ahead of the game on Monday.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
