More sock-ventures

Yep the sock had another adventure last night. OK it is a different sock than the one that met authors last year but whatever!

My book group (yes the three of us constitute a group!!) had a guest last night. Casey Daniels joined us to discuss her latest Pepper Martin book, Tombs of Endearment. This is her third book in the series and despite my usual reservations about reading a series book out of order I bit the bullet and dove into the book. I enjoyed it and will go back to read the first two books since as I told Casey last night with my usual reading quirk not knowing what happened earlier was JUST enough to make me slightly nuts!! but you don't have to read the first ones to enjoy this book.

She was a great guest and even willingly posed with the sock.

Oh yes it might help that she is also a knitter!

I know I know

OK I swear I am not dead and have not run off to Tahiti (although the second option sounds REALLY REALLY tempting right now). It's been super crazy with work and work (oh yeah and WORK) plus the holidays didn't help either. I promise I will come back and post a real post soon - with pictures (of actual knitted items (yes knitted by me shut up!!!)). Got to get ready for a bachlorette party tonight......
