First Finish

I've finished the first Round of Sock Madness 9 in under 1 week.  And I've already received my acceptance from the moderators so it's on to Round 2.  Round 1 doesn't officially end till next Sunday so I've got plenty of time to rest up.  In the meantime, here are my Alohomora socks: the little stitch markers are showing the moderators that I did 11 repeats of the pattern as required.

I took a bit of a tumble yesterday at the quilt shop; my own fault..not watching where I was going and going too fast resulted in a trip on an uneven join in the cement slab and my sprawling like a beached whale.  A perfect 6 point landing - both knees, both hands, my chin, and the tip of my nose.  Fortunately, no skin was broken...but it took a very strong young woman to literally lift me to my feet since I was unable to do so by myself. I was pretty sore by the time I made it home last night and slept fitfully...but today is much better and the only bruising I have been able to find is the heel of my left hand and my chin.  See?

Except for my embarrassment, I got off really easy, don't you think?  
On a totally different note, I am a most proud mama these days.  Our son lives in Utah and was recently awarded one of the top "40 Under 40" that would be awesome in itself...but he was told that the news of this award went much further than Utah...all the way to Times Square in New York City.  Lookie!
John and I are so proud of him. 

Thanks for stopping by...I'm off to rest my knees and get some sleep.

Congratulations to your son - what a great achievement! Congratulations to his proud parents too. You were lucky that your injuries were minor.....the worst part of a fall is the loss of dignity, isn't it? Love those green socks, just right for St Patrick's Day coming up.
