Socks and Gators

We had a great Thanksgiving. MM's homework over the holidays was to eat lots of turkey and she succeeded. But now it's back to work.

I'm teaching a crocheted sock class at Fiber Art on Saturday. I'm terribly excited about this class. You know I love socks, and now I have the chance to share that love of making socks with others. There are 8 people signed up for the class -- a full house!

And then there are submission deadlines coming in early January, so I'm busy thinking of ideas for submissions. Next week (after the 1st session of sock making) I'm going to start swatching and getting my proposals ready. Wish me luck!

On a non-crochet note, my Florida Gators are playing the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC championship game on Saturday. In some polls, these teams are #1 and #2 in the nation. So, for me, this game will be the NCAA national championship -- the winner will surely secure a spot in the BCS national championship game. Go Gators!!
