Exciting( Or Not) Sunday

Around noon on Sunday when a second round of thunderstorms came through, our power went out. After looking outside we realized that a tree in the yard(vacant lot) next door to us had taken the power lines down.  There were live wires in our front yard as well as across out driveway.  DH called the power company immediately and they responded immediately with a scouting truck and told us that help was on the way.  Within 30 minutes there were 2 Georgia Power bucket trucks as well as a local bucket tree truck.  


They also replaced the transformer.


Many thanks to Alabama and Georgia Power for the very fast service!


I did  finished the Sunrise Socks.

Yarn- Yarn Pirate  Superwash Merino
Colorway - Sweet Pea
Pattern  -  Sunrise Socks from Wendy Knits
Needles  -  2.5 mm DPNs

This was a great pattern to show off the colorful yarn.  
Next up is a pair of socks I am knitting for a vendor for Sock Summit.  Details later.

We were driving home from the beach in that mess. Nasty stuff. Glad the tree missed your house and didn't do much damage!

I guess that's one way to keep you in the house knitting! Glad everyone was safe. Beautiful socks. Why didn't you try them toe up? ;) Once you get the cast-on, everything goes great.

Probably not how you expected to spend your Sunday afternoon but it's really quick service.
