Getting Closer

Well, I would have totally finished Ocean Toes 2 on the drive to Panama City today, but ...

Yep. Ran out of yarn. Fortunately, I think the finished sock is a bit too long and I just need a little yarn to finish Sock 2. The big question is how much should I rip out of Sock 1. I made a pretty awesome hash of the pattern from where I started the increases for the arch. Yeah. It's that bad.

I'll probably leave this project exactly where it is for a while while I knit the two remaining sockitectures in New Pathways so I'm ready for my class. Ridgeline is next.

The hotel in Panama City is significantly nice. It's actually one of those condo-that-rents-like-a-hotel places. RT, Bear and I have the master suite because my suitemate co-worker is quite cool.

We're right on the beach.

Like right on the beach. Awesome. We're gonna do our best to take a walk on the beach in the morning. Schweet! I'll also post better beach photos from the field tomorrow. The wireless card I have is better than nothing, but not by all that much.

And, as an added bonus, I got to take sunset pictures tonight! We all know that's one of my favorite photo subjects! :)

Dinner was supposed to be at 6 local (central) but got pushed to 7 because "we" had to pick up some guy I never heard of. He's a coach who lives in Kansas? Beats me. All I know is that today is the first day in almost a month that I haven't been bone-crushingly tired. I'd like to go to bed at a relatively early hour so I can bring that streak to a whopping two days. Wish me luck! I had a really awesome meal for dinner, which was followed by the Meeting from Hell. Five more sleeps, and I think it might be a long weekend. :(

The beach! I am jealous! We're supposed to have another snow storm here this weekend. :-P

Sorry about the socks -- that's so close it's almost cruel! I hope you can work out the yardage issues.

Wow, the beach! You were missed last night. I hope you can get to bed early soon, because you sound exhausted.
