Earlier this week we scheduled our annual Louise Lunch for May 8, a week from Saturday. Immediately I realized I needed to get daughter Heather's birthday socks done by then and they weren't even started.
Luckily I did have the yarn and was able to cast on immediately.
There's a little bit of knitting time pressure stress, but I think I'm up to the challenge.

It looks like we're going to get through spring without an April snow storm. I like that. A lot.
