Yes, I know I have been missing a while. There is really no reason for it though, just havent gotten around to blogging (although I have been reading your blogs regularly).

I'm traveling more with work now, to Illinois, Alabama and Tennessee. I'll be out of town the next 2 weeks to do walkthroughs. I went up to IL a couple weeks ago for an inventory. That was pretty cool since the client is a manufacturer of metal items - I got to see the foundry where they melt brass. Here's a pic from IL:

Yes, a whole lot of nothing.

Then I broke my deadbolt on my front door. I put the key in and it got stuck, so when I pulled it out it pulled out the core of the lock. And of course the back door deadbolt was broken (couldn't get in from the outside). I was locked out for about an hour before I was able to get the core back in
just so to get it to unlock. It was a Sunday night so I had to wait until after work on Monday to go to Lowe's and buy new deadbolts. And I replaced it myself :)

I had to frog JP's sock because it was just too small. She could get it on, but it would be better a little bigger. I have pics of that too:

Fun times. I also have pictures of my two Eye of Partridge heels. One was slipped knit-wise, the other purl-wise. But that will be next time!

Even though they didn't quite fit, they look like lovely socks, pretty colorway.

Kudos for the lock replacement. Those things can be kinda like pounding a square peg into a round hole at times.

Love the colorway of the sock.
