A time capsule

This is how far I've come along on my sockapalooza knit . I'm so frustrated with the barber pole striping . It seems no matter how many stitches I cast on and what pattern I knit , this is what I get . Apparently Lorna's laces does that quite frequently . I guess I'll just keep plugging along to the gusset and heel and see what happens . I still have time to find an alternative knit as these socks aren't due to be mailed till August.

Knitting time has been at a premium this week . I'm desperately trying to catch up with the garden work . When I have the time it's raining , and naturally when I don't it's sunny . Looks like rain again today. Ah well , more knitting time .

Here's photo of the crew that's been working on the house construction . The new home owners to be are seated on the bottom step. My DH and and son Max are directly behind Casey . They've all worked so hard and it's been an amazing experience in so many ways . A couple of copies of this and another photo of the crew have been have been laminated and placed in behind the dry wall as a sort of time capsule . Everyone signed the pics and Chantal wrote a small dedication on the back . Will be interesting for whoever finds it in the future . We're still not done but it looks like they'll make their target date of July 1st. I think that life after this will seem awfully quiet . Oops, there's wedding plans to be made , how could I forget !

Yeah, LL yarn can get frustrating! But the colores are beautiful. Nice idea with the laminated photos. First comes the house, and then comes the wedding, or is it a different couple? We had a house too before we got married! And two kids! ;o) Oops, what am I saying, 1 1/2 kids actually. ;o)

I for one think your sock is coming along really beautifully - but then again, I heard about Lorna's Laces being pretty frustrating at times. I think your plan on going on a bit more upwards and then see what happens is the best thing you can do!
Thanks for sharing this great pic - the crew seems to happy and cheerful, it must be a joy working with them!
