Welcome to the newest member of my little fambly, Iris the truck. She's a 2002 Ford Ranger with 5-speed manual transmission. Isn't she a cutie-pie? Sister Jane and the girls and I had a very nice visit with Brother Tim, Ian and Katie before I drove the truck home. Thanks Ian, for spotting such a bargain for your old Auntie Teri!
Tomorrow I'll go to the BMV to complete the ritual necessary to transfer the title and register Iris. I would love to be able to find out approximately how much that will cost, but the BMV's computer system is down.
Besides adopting Iris, I celebrated Socktober first by completing the Undulating Rib Cashmere Blend socks. Yarn was gifted to me by Dave, included in my KSKS package. I love this stuff... The pictures were taken after the socks had a bath, and the yarn has started to bloom a little.
Then I cast on a new sock in Kona SuperWash Merino from Wool2Dye4, dyed way back in June along with the yarn I dyed for Ruth's Dye-O-Rama package. It tickles me no end to be using a pattern called Broken Rib on this sock. The yarn on the right is KnitPick's Worsted Weight Bare, dyed with black and turquoise. It's destined to become a Klein Bottle Hat for Isaac. Yeah! I know! I'm actually planning a non-sock project!!
