Even Rocket Scientists Have To Frog

...Er, at least aircraft propulsion engineers have to frog.... every once in a while.

This is my Spring Forward first sock.  I finished it, only to have the foot look more like a flipper than anything sock-ish.  I even wove the toe together & sewed in the ends.... and I let it sit for several months. 

Last week, in a fit of spring-cleaning-perhaps-I-don't-know, I reopened the toe and ripped back to where the gusset was finished at the base of the foot.  I printed out a fresh copy of the pattern, as mine was thoroughly worn, and now it is sitting on my coffee table, next to the Radiating Star blanket.


In other news... work has been somewhat stressful lately, and I really need a vacation, but feel somewhat pressured that I can't take one till we deliver a full-blown product that the FAA will let companies buy. And it's pretty much looking like I won't get to see Daniel till he returrns for good in the fall... Sigh. 

On the upside? Last week, I rowed 2000 m in 9:36, and yesterday I got a backsquat PR of 60 kg x 5 reps! Woo!
