Made It!

Made it through the storm.  We were very lucky.  We lost power around 4:00 on Monday, which was much earlier than anticipated.  The winds really picked up around 5:00.  You could hear trees snapping in the neighborhood.
The rain wasn't too bad.  It was mostly a wind event for us.  The bay really kicked up.
It was hard to get good photos.  I was itching to go down to the beach but common sense got the best of me.  So I stayed put.  And I knit.
I wasn't sure if I would get them done in time for Halloween.  The knitting in the dark was not making my eyes happy.  But I persevered and they are now complete.
I like the afterthought heel better now.  Once I picked up the stitches it went along so fast.  Definitely faster than the short row heel that I usually do.  So I think I will use it for the next couple of pairs I make.  Maybe I will become a convert?

I wore them today, and it is sadly my only Halloween costume.
They are very comfortable!  The biggest Halloween surprise was waking up to electricity!  A hot shower was never so enjoyable.

Love the socks! I still haven't finished mine but I did make some good progress Sunday and Monday. We never lost our power and I was shocked. Glad you are all okay.

So glad you were safe, but sorry about the lowlight knitting. I find I may be needing reading glasses for such work.
