It looks like night-time outside! It’s almost 9 a.m. and it is dark, grey, rainy, etc. Quite honestly, a perfect day to have stayed home…but I did not. Our weather has not been the greatest lately. Saturday was warm – 72 F, but too breezy for archery. On Sunday the thermometer struggled to get to 40 F. Yesterday we were back up to 68 or so, but very foggy and damp. Dark and foggy on the way to work this morning and now raining heavily. Sigh…I just want to curl up under a blanket.
I felt the “need” to start something new on Sunday and because it was so chilly and raw I cast on Sigla. No picture yet, but I’ve gotten through the first color on the yoke and am ready to start the second. It is a fun and easy knit so far. I am using Léttlopi yarn which is a bit scratchy, but I will be wearing a shirt of some kind under this sweater, so am not concerned about that. I love the colors. Pictures next post (hopefully).
I managed to get some done on Colin’s second sock…almost there!
Hoping to finish this by Thursday when he will be stopping by for dinner. Then I think it will be time for a new pair of socks for myself.
My friend Carol who is coming up from Maryland for the Steel City Fiber Festival wants to learn how to knit socks. She is going to spend the night at our place that Saturday, so hopefully I can get her started on some.
I also dug out the copy I have of my Mom’s scrapbook from her “big adventure” in 1940…I will try to scan some pages for another post.
And last, but certainly not least, here is Tyg.
He was curled up on the bed in the guestroom Sunday when it was so chilly and raw. I think he slept for hours!
