Socks Ahoy!

As promised, here are picts of the socks in progress:



L to R: Trekking; Koigu



Trekking: Ready for heel flap.



Koigu: Turned the heel last night.

Did you get that?

I turned the heel last night!!!

And it worked!


Hooray!

I rode my motorcycle for the first time today.

This was a weekend for firsts!

I got the motorcycle almost two years ago as a semi-disassembled bunch of parts. It turns out that my neighbor Mark has almost the identical bike. It only took us a couple of weekends to get the thing running. So yesterday, I went out and got a final, crucial piece of equipment:


See Mom? I'm being careful!


Now that the thing was running, I knew that if I didn't take decisive action, it would sit around for another couple of years before I ever got around to licensing it [or myself] and actually using it. So, Mark motored us over to a nearby empty parking lot for some riding lessons. I had a ball. I will need some practice before taking my driving test, but its not hard to handle at all.

The bike is a 1971 BMW R60/5, modeled below by the MLI Spokesdogs, P + T.

I'm really looking forward to 50 miles per gallon.

Assuming that you're using the same yarn for both socks, it's not to match.

They will be two pair eventually; I guess the picts were confusing. I'm not trying to make a fashion statement about unmatched socks or anything.
