Not So Much "Finishing" Friday

Okay, I admit, I'm getting a little bit cheesed at Husqvarna in general and my local dealer in particular.  Tuesday will be 5 weeks without Jeeves, and I have no idea if the part has shipped or if it's still on back order.  So, I decided to do something different on Friday, so I went out to lunch and to my favorite used bookstore. These
were $2 each, and have some clever ideas--along with some seriously outdated pictures, but for $2, who can be picky?

And....
I cast on the yellow socks!  I am using the Ribbed Lace pattern from Sensational Socks, and so far I love the pattern.  It's actually a k1, p1 rib-based pattern, so I have high hopes for socks that will actually stay up, which none of my knitted socks really do.....except for that pair that cuts off circulation just a bit, but I think one pair of tourniquet socks is enough for anyone.....

Someone is refusing to hang out with me at all.....
If there isn't sewing soon, I may have to relinquish my status as Primary Human.
