Back to WorkThe long weekend was lovely... just lovely. I made oodles (a scientific description!) of progress on Menagerie- I should be able to finish the knitting in March, and hopefully the ends in April. I'm already to the bottom of the lion's mane... I think I have about 70 rows left. I didn't get quite as much work done on it this weekend as I wanted- it was so beautiful outside I couldn't resist going for a couple of long walks. :) It seems that Spring might actually be here- although I guess we could always get a freak snow storm, even now.
I've started the ribbing for the first tiger sock- my friend said she liked lots of ribbing, so I started it an inch or so earlier than I might have otherwise. I think for some of my other friends, I'll make "anklet socks"- they were so cute at that stage! But this friend wants them longer, so that's what she'll get! :)
Visiting GW law school yesterday was wonderful- another school I would be very excited to go to. I just wish I didn't have to wait for 16 months! Oh well- patience is a virtue, right? And when I got home from visiting the campus, my sock-of-the-month kit was waiting, as was my new issue of Stranded! Needless to say, I was VERY excited. :) Nothing in Stranded is jumping out at me as an "I have to knit this right now," but I think I will definitely be looking into both the socks, the baby blanket, and the vest- especially since I could dye my own variegated yarn like I did with Ocean. :) I was extremely impressed with both shipments- the sock club yarn was so lovely! and the newsletter was inspiring. :)
The Latin phrase for today:
"without any trouble"
