I finished my 39th pair of socks on Friday, only 2 weeks behind schedule, and so have made some baby socks to catch up.

Moppet helped:

I think these socks should stay on, don't you?

And speaking of helping, Kevin's doing a stair climbing race in a few weeks to raise money for the American Lung Association of New England (and then he's doing a second one a while after that). I have an unreasonable hatred of climbing stars--I think it comes of living on the 4th (or 5th?) floor of a dorm with no elevator my first year in college--but he seems to enjoy it.

I may have told him too many times about the Yarn Harlot and Doctors Without Borders, because he's asked me to ask you to support him.

Also, people who live in New Haven, do you have access to lots of stairs (more than 12 flights) that you'd be willing to share with Kevin? Maybe at work? He's been practicing on the stairs at the gym, but they're a little weird, and not that similar to the stairs he'll be climbing in the race.

Moppet is so cute! And Kevin is CRAZY doing all those stairs! Sadly for him, I don't know any building that has that mane flights of stairs.

I'll totally donate something, but I'm calling for a contest before I give. (Snark!)

It was good seeing you yesterday. It makes me miss my knitting girls that much more.

You have a bunny?? Cute! The federal building probably has lots of stairs but I don't know if they are easily accessible. Good to see you yesterday! Have fun spinning.

The bunny ear-warmers are so cute!

I've never heard of a stair marathon before, but I think you'd have to be in terrific shape to do that, maybe more so than biking or even running. I hope he finds a good practice staircase!
