My First Sock and First Turkey!

How often do those two things get blogged about together?

So I have successfully completed my first knitted sock. It's lovely! It feels softer on the foot than in the hands. And even the DH is convinced a pair of knitted socks is something he needs.

It looks great on his foot... a perfect fit!

A bit baggy on mine, but oh so comfortable!

I know I am potentially committing sock suicide here, but I am not casting on for the next sock until I get that damn afghan done. Just a little ways to go on it, but it's dragging on.

Off to the turkey....

Looks good, but it got cooked with one of the plastic bags inside. No one knew until after they ate their meal, and no one tasted any plastic. I must say, though, that something felt very wrong about cooking a turkey. I guess I prefer my meat to have no resemblance to the animal it was so that I don't feel so bad about it dying (and especially how it died).

I haven't shared anything about the Big Bad Doggy Sister here in a while. Here is another picture to further prove just how "bad" she is!

That was her on Thanksgiving morning. She was not getting up off her bed for anything. She didn't even lift her head when I came down to see her. What a life...I'm jealous!

I was just reading a previous post that you made. You should be VERY PROUD of that 4.0 in GRAD SCHOOL. I would be telling all my friends and family that, but that would mean I would have to go to college.
