Yarn Along - Is A Stash Buster

I can say that these projects are being made with yarn I had left over form previous ones.
I have wanted to try making sock two at a time. 
So I'm using 2 Socks at-a-Time, Toe-Up, Magic Loop by Very Pink Knits.
Here is a link to a youtube video

I haven't gotten very far as you can tell.
I also started some slipper using a new pattern and the yarn leftover from "the little dudes"
slippers, just didn't take a picture yet. I'll tell you more about this pattern and another one next week. There is more to it then just the pattern and I would like to get all my facts straight and such.

Now for what I'm reading. It's not a novel or biography (which I love) No this is something that pleases my geek side. I had heard about this on TV and just knew I had to find it. 
And I have already used a few of the tips already.

This book if full of tips and trick you can use whether it's your phone, tablet, computer or camera and others.
here is what amazon said;
Did you know that can you scroll a Web page just by tapping the space bar? How do you recover photos you’ve deleted by accident? What can you do if your cell phone’s battery is dead by dinnertime each day?
When it comes to technology, there’s no driver’s ed class or government-issued pamphlet covering the essentials.
