What happened to September !?

The birthday boys - Opa , Casey and Max
Hi again !  It just seems like so many other things have claimed my time this month that blogging has fallen by the wayside . September , the short version , my father arrived from Austria a few weeks ago , so the family is here often , make that just about all the time . It seems like I have a revolving front door and an open kitchen . We celebrated three birthdays this month .As well Mike and Max put a new roof on the house . I had a  mammogram this month and have to go back for a follow up with my doctor this week . Just to make life more interesting , I managed to catch a humdinger of a cold . So that's September, mostly good stuff , but some crappy stuff thrown in .

 Murano socks
Today is cold and rainy ,  a perfect day to get in some knitting . I finished a pair of socks for my September sock KAL , but I REALLY have to get Mason's sweater finished . It's been stalled at the halfway point of the first sleeve . The body has been blocking on my ironing board for at least two weeks . Shows you how often I iron anything . Socktoberfest kicks off tomorrow and I'm trying to ignore the urge to cast on for another pair of socks . With a bit of luck and perseverance maybe I can get the first sleeve done today...

Hope the news from the doctor isn't too bad ... news from a doctor is NEVER good, is it???? You'll be in my prayers.

I got a call at 6:30 AM while we were out in Phoenix. Of course, back here it was 9, so it WAS normal, but out there it scared the heck out of me. Luckily, it was as good news as it could have been. I STILL have an infection and he was calling in a prescription. Luckily that was our day to fly home, so I could get it right away. But, NOBODY likes a 6:30 AM wake up from the dr.'s office. LOL

Love your new socks. You do have to cast on some though. It's SOCTOBERFEST! I cast on 3 new pair today.

My thoughts are with you too for the Doctor's follow-up. Hopefully it's something trivial that he wants to discuss.

I'm glad you've been busy with family. It's always hectic to have out-of-town guests, but lovely to spend some time with them.

I had a look at your project page for the socks and queued the pattern immediately. And I'm entirely ignoring Dee's comment about SOctoberfest.
