Still tidying :)
Also there was some confusion as to whether or not the socks said baraka (meaning blessing), and they do. I checked this with 2 native Arabic speakers. Apparently, the little dot there is very important and unless you can see it (it's hard to spot in the photos) the arabic doesn't make any sense. But it DOES indeed say what it's supposed to say.
By way of updates, C's socks are plodding along, I've swatched and wound all the yarn for the Renaissance wool scarf, and I'll probably start it this evening after I do some charting. I've worked a few more rows on the new shawl design, but nothing really worth bothering taking pictures of.
I did manage to get my house pretty clean on Friday before I went to Logan for family stuff. It was really nice to come home to a clean house! Now if only I can get to the laundry.....
