Is it just my post office?

I went to the post office to mail something today and when I got there the line was out the door. The clerks were all so slow! Eventually, they opened up a total of 5 lines, but were averaging a person per minute total. (Okay, to be fair, I won't count the guy who was doing passports.) The line was even further out the door when I left. Are other post offices more efficient? Was it because I went on a Monday?

My first sock (well, sort of)

It's a mini-sock!

I finished the class sock in Sensational Knitted Socks. I had a little bit of trouble with the Kitchener stitch - it felt like my stitches were twisting. I'm pretty sure that I did it wrong - the stockinette is on the inside and the outside is reverse stockinette. I'll have to make swatches to practice on. But for a first try it works.
