New Sock Basket Needed

As you can see, I've managed to fill up this basket with socks for me. There are three (and a half!) pairs I've made for DH, as well, but they aren't in this basket. I've also got three more pairs for myself on the needles...I should try stopping knitting sometime soon! Here's how the slab looked when the crew finished pouring it and removed all the forming up lumber. That's the last time we'll be able to see this wide-angle view...it's now framing up and there are walls and stuff in the way. There is, however, a nice big picture window right in the middle of the wall, and French doors on either side.
Here's how it's looking today. Roof trusses are going on now. Noisy, but very nice to see. There are thunderstorms predicted for later in the week, so I know they're gunning to get at least the plywood on up there ASAP.
I actually started clearing out the kitchen yesterday. Can't tell you how TIRED I am of packing and unpacking! Plus, I managed to tweak my left lower back picking up boxes that are too heavy for me. Will I ever learn?...don't answer that!

Wow Diane! You're right the view is spectacular! And those socks are fabulous - love the colours too!

From someone who is only just about to complete her very first pair of socks, I am in awe of your bounty there! Absolutely brilliant.

Have a soak in the tub with some wine, followed by Motrin, and you're back will be better. If not, repeat tomorrow with additional wine if necessary....

That looks like a lot of concrete and if concrete is as outrageously expensive there as it is here, oh. . I don't want to even think about it!

Those socks are fantastic. Look at the picture . . the front row, left side is kinda rippled. Do you know what yarn and what pattern you used. I love the yarn and the design. But, I love them all!
