Despite not really leaving the house for days (and therefore no "waiting on Caleb" time for knitting), I have gotten some work done on Mickael's Man Sock. I'm going to try it on him sometime today to see how much farther I have to go before toe decreases should start. I've probably got 2 or 3 more inches to go, but Mickael has this annoying habit of walking off with his feet and taking them to work where I can't make him try socks on so I have to measure him when he's here. On a top down sock (at least with the kind of toe decreases I work), if you start the toe decreases when the foot of the sock reaches the place where your big toe connects to the rest of your toes (or where a flip flop would go), the sock will be the right length. I learned that little trick early in my sock knitting from a comment left here on my blog and it works for my socks, Mickael's socks, and Caleb's socks, so I'm guessing it's a pretty universal rule.
It's still really cold here and Caleb is still out of school, but the temps are supposed to get above freezing tomorrow - for the first time since late Monday night. Of course, we might get more snow tonight and tomorrow too, just to make things nice for Logan. I think he's about the only one in the Metroplex who's enjoying this weather.
