A Grand Meeting

 For the car ride yesterday, I worked on this sock.
I thought I was going to do some patterning on this one but didn't enjoy having to count for the lace 
I had picked out.  
I settled on k3, p1 up the foot and then will do the leg in the same pattern all around.
I had just started on the gusset increases when we got back home.
 And I did work on the whole ride up to tame this tangle!
Look at the progress I made!
 The strands are really looped through each other and not really tangled unbearable.
I patiently (see, Nancy, I was patient) teased each loop through its neighbors until they were side by side again.  And yes, Dee it was very much like a good puzzle.  Bill still thought I was crazy! lol
And the reason for the trip---
to bring the Fernandina grands back to spend a few days with us!
By the time I had taken this photo, I was already 'pooled' out two hours later
and grandpa was about wrinkled beyond his years!
I coaxed them out with the lure of a ice cream cone!
It worked!
