New Hibernation RulesYou know the weather isn't going to be good if the HIGH temperature for the day was at 4 am. From our lovely 80s yesterday, we're plummeting into the 40s... I think weather like that is meant for hibernating. Now, if only my work agreed, I'd still be at home, in bed, snuggled up with a black fuzzy fluff-ball!
I've made tremendous progress on my first Karebear sock. (Karebear = my friend's nickname... all you 80s children will understand!) I'm flying through the pattern... 3/1 ribbing on the top, stockinette on the bottom (toe-up). The woolease sport toe looks fabulous- and I'll do the same with the heel. I know, I know, I need to take a picture. At this rate, though, I'll be nearly done by the time I manage to snap a shot! Oh well. Gotta love, though, how knitting on the sock makes me WANT to go to the gym during lunch... what a nice knitting vacation sandwiched in the middle of the day! And, if I have time after the gym, I can get a little more knitting done while listening to the BBC worldservice. I usually listen to NPR in the evenings, but for a different perspective, I'm learning to love the BBC. Every once in awile it's invaluable to be exposed to non-American-centric viewpoints. And the incredulous anger I feel after listening to international views on America's current stupidity makes the knitting go even faster!
Somehow, in all this sock excitement, my mom's vest is getting a little neglected... I did a few more rows last night, and I'm about an inch from starting the armhole decreases. But there still is quite a ways to go, plus the right front and assembly- including i-cord! I have until the end of June (her birthday), but still- I've been slacking. Especially since I want to have Mom's vest done as soon as possible- after all, the rest of the beautiful yarn for my Dad's vest will arrive any day now, and then the temptation will be almost unbearable. ;)
CSI tonight is a repeat... guess I can work on the vest. And next week, we'll be watching CSI from LAS VEGAS!!!!!!!!!!! hee hee hee.
If you're like me and have your next project all planned out, you can respond:
