Sigh… Vacation is Over
Short but sweet. I did not leave my abode for three consecutive days. maybe not something to brag about, but fun nonetheless.
I read three books. Two were for school, though, so they had to be read anyway.
Before I go to bed tonight I will have finished a pair of socks. No photos yet. Here is the scarf I’ve been knitting for my sister to go with the LSU Tychus I knit her for Christmas (but still haven’t mailed):
Perhaps you can see the problem. I’ve started and frogged seven or eight different patterns that I ended up not liking. Maybe she wouldn’t mind just wrapping the yarn around her neck… Students like to make fashion statements, right?
While I’m showing exciting photos of unknit yarn, here are my wound skeins for the first round of Sock Madness 2. Yes, that’s lace weight. Lace. Socks. It’s going to be doubled, but it will still require very small needles in order to create sock fabric. I’m hoping 2mm will do, since that’s the smallest I can get here.
My cat has been busy this week playing hide-and-seek. I don’t think he quite knows what to do with so much company; he hasn’t had this much constant companionship since I successfully jetisonned Mr. Please-Be-My-Ex. You might notice his hiding skills are, um, rusty. I was changing the sheets when he “hid” here. That’s just poor strategy.
