Wine and Dark Chocolate for Everybody!

I finally finished something. Whew, I was starting to worry about my ability to finish anything after that one post. Wine and Dark Chocolate for Everybody! Did I say for everybody? I meant Wine and Dark Chocolate socks for me! 

Adriene this heel shot is for you. Since I now know someone likes them as much as I do, I think you may see more heels on this blog. 

This is from The Sassy Sheep from a farmer's market in Idaho Falls, Idaho. You remember D brought it home from a business trip. It is always fun for me to try new yarns, especially ones I can not find locally.  I love to see the colors that D picks. Keeps me from going into a green rut. And I must admit to liking the color and the name (Wine and Dark Chocolate) of these especially. 

These just might be my Thanksgiving Day socks this year. Oh speaking of Thanksgiving, I am participating in my first ever Turkey Trot 5K walk/run. D will be running and I will be walking. If my legs do not cramp I will even try to trot the final stretch. The other day I managed to do an 11:45 minute mile on my elliptical machine. I've been walking on it for 15 minutes in the morning at least 4-5 times a week. I know it is not much but it is a start. Who knows maybe I will be ready for some 5Ks next year. 

Well I'm off to knit on something else that needs finishing. I hope I don't get struck by startitis till I get a few more things done. 


  1. Woohoo, I love me some heels! good job with the daily exercise. I've been trying hard to get up and do 30 minutes of exercise a day. It pays off!

  2. Yes it does pay off. I just keep thinking how good it will feel to complete a 5K.
