Jill-Walker Progress

I've made some good progress on my Jill-Walker socks. The pattern is very easy and going much faster now. I did end up doing some additional decreases with the help of DF Heather. I'm excited about turning the heel.
The ruffle is great, but the 224 stitch cast on was painful.

A significant amount of the progress was made while watching FSU baseball over the weekend. Two of the three games played were on TV here in Atlanta, thankfully! It helped calm my nerves to keep my hands busy. The Seminoles are on their way to Omaha for the College World Series. Go 'Noles!!

On Sunday I went to the Fox Theater to see Horton Hears a Who. It was Riley and Melia's first trip to the Fox and they were mesmerized by it, and who wouldn't be? They had a lot of curious questions - how does the man play the organ with his hands and his feet? How are the keys moving on the piano when the man is playing the organ (way over there)? Why is everything gold? They especially enjoyed the "Jasmine" themed surroundings and attempted to count all 96 stars. I can't wait until they are older to take them to a live show. Riley was having difficulty picturing the orchestra pit - why would the musicians sit down there where no one could see them? We all enjoyed the movie as well. Thank goodness we don't have to go to the movies to get news - although that would make the media more discriminating in what they present.

Oh nice...

I hear ya with the fancy pants cast-ons that turn right around and decrease, decrease, decrease. Pretty, but a pain.

Hopefully it will be worth it in the end.
