Go With The Flow socks

We had lovely plans to go see fireworks on the Fourth... and then came the thunderstorm and tornado warnings. So instead, Amie, Jody, Coleen, and I hung out at Coleen's, did some knitting, and watched Office Space. I have a feeling that, if we had decided to stay for the fireworks instead of saying, "Wet ground... icky", I wouldn't have finished these:

My Go With The Flow socks are now DONE and wearable! This pattern is in IK summer 2005, and is also in the Interweave Favorite Socks book. The easily memorized and very repetitive lace made it so I could work on this absolutely anywhere... and I'm glad I had coaching for the final kitchenering, because I can never remember how to get that started.

And, lest you think that I only have one measly FO here...
Box Bag

Folks, I SEWED. It's been about 15 years since the last time that happened. With some very patient supervision from Jody and Sarah, Amie and I each turned out a box bag yesterday! Do I already have several sewing books checked out of the library? Maybe... :)

oh, your bag looks so cute! I'm two final seams from finishing another bag that is so cute it ticks me off.

After that there will be a sewing hiatus, since I can't buy more supplies until payday on the 15th....
