First pair of socks finished in 2017!

We had about 1/2″ of snow when I awoke this morning.   So no rush in getting around.   I finished these Br0nwynn’s  Mock Cable socks.   They were made with Paton’s Fireside 5 ply 100% wool, which is why the nylon reinforced heel and toe and on size 3 needles which made them go faster.   That means I

actually finished February socks in February!    I did find the free pattern in Ravelry.   It won’t let me copy and paste the page address  so just look for Bronwynn’s Mock Cable Socks by Shawn Morris. .   I didn’t realize the name was not the name of the creator.   So any of you interested can get it there.

Then I finished setting up Quicken for all our accounts.   I used to keep it up to date, but DH took over paying the bills and doesn’t like to bother.   So the compromise is I take care of Quicken and he pays the bills.   It makes it so much easier when you have to pull numbers together for a project or for taxes.
